Endings are hard (TV endings I mean)

I have a weird tendency to not watch the ending of TV series I like. You’ll notice that I didn’t say “habit” but “tendency” because I swear it’s unintentional.

I feel like I may have told you this at some point. Did I? My memory isn’t the greatest right now, still.

To this day, I haven’t watched the finale of 30 Rock, in spite of it being one of my top five favorite shows of all time.

Part of that stems from the whole Hazel character introduction because UGH. The rest is me worrying that the ending won’t live up to the show. Continue reading

I went to After Paradise with @AbbyDraper and laughed my face off

On one of two recent LA trips (is it any wonder I am TIRED?!) I had the distinct pleasure of attending After Paradise with my Twitter bud @AbbyDraper thanks to our friend Millsy aka Rob Mills.

Although Abby and I have tweeted and emailed a lot, this was our first in-person meet-up. She did not disappoint. Abby is as hilarious and fun as she is here and here and here and here.

First we watched the East Coast Bachelor in Paradise feed with our beloved Millsy and some wine.

There will be wine

Remember this post about women who are dating or married to men who look like their dads?

Well, Zoe Kravitz has topped them ALL. Boyfriend Twin Shadow looks a lot like her dad Lenny Kravitz.


What do you think – creepy? understandable? something else?

Magic Mike XXL, the unexpected feminist movie

Just like I did re: The Bachelorette – or rather didn’t do – I won’t recap Magic Mike XXL. Not because I didn’t enjoy it (I enjoyed it A LOT) but because other, better writers have already done so.

Here are a few highlights from their write-ups interspersed with pics and gifs from this totally Oscar-caliber* movie as well as one or two of my own thoughts.

If you’re concerned about spoilers – and you really shouldn’t be because the paper-thin plot is Not The Point – I guess stop reading. But you’d be missing stuff like this:

Sometimes a girl needs a cheap massage

Recently I have been under an unusually high level of stress. Obviously.

The morning after Arte Agave, I woke up not hungover, but sore.

My guess is that after fifteen margaritas (I exaggerate) and tequila punches, I slept in an unmoving heap for eight plus hours. Ouch. My neck, my back, etc. Continue reading

This is not a recap of The Bachelorette

Someone asked me “why don’t you write recaps of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette when you’re such an avid viewer?”

Good questions deserve good answers.KB

First (and foremost), I am a very, very lazy person. Continue reading

Five creepy things Chris Soules said that weren’t actually creepy

If you have been watching The Bachelor this season – which has been fantastic, by the way – you know Chris has a funny way with words. His blog for People Magazine only serves to supplement the broadcast show, and in writing.
