It's coming. July 12th (or 11th, depending on who you ask). Just a warning, so you know that your boyfriends/husbands may be "away" for a couple of weeks. Just in case you thought we may have matured since last year, rest assured... we haven't. We're still the same. What time we're not spending at NCAA 2006 parties or leading our team to the national championship will be spent talking about it, thinking about it, and catching a couple of hours of sleep here and there. Just accept it. Besides, we don't ask for that much. And hey, at least you know where we are O:)
Tour de France
Be sure to follow the Tour de France online each day, as Lance goes for his 7th consecutive win. Looks like he held on to the yellow jersey today. There was some talk of relinquishing it
for a few days to one of the sprinters until they reach the mountain stages, but that didn't happen today.
Not as glamorous as one might think
The bachelor's life is not always about hotties, staying out late, or watching TV in your boxers while eating a block of cheese the size of a car battery (although that last part is true more often than the others). Let's just look at yesterday, for example:
Early AM - The day started off with a nice surprise. As I was getting ready for work, I received a phone call and found a girl standing at my back door. OK, so this isn't doing much to support my non-glamorous-bachelor claim, is it? But trust me, it's all downhill after this.
1:30 - Left work early because I worked way over last Thursday.
2:00 - Arrive home. Turn on General Hospital to see if I can catch up and figure out what's going on.
2:59 - I can't figure out much. There's a new Carly, a new Felicia, and a new Lucky, best I can tell. Oh, and a new Elizabeth... or Emily. I get them confused. Carly has married Alcazar. Some girl from her past (Reese) has appeared looking for revenge for something, apparently. She has hooked up with Sonny. Jason and Carly are suspicious.
3:00 - Decide I need to change out Pablo's water. He is sooo cute when I change his water. He fights so hard to stay out of that net. Then once I finally catch him, it's just like he gives up. He's so helpless, but it's so cute. He totally relies on me to take care of him ;-) He's sooo widdle.
3:20 - Water replacement procedure completed. Decide to have a snack. I have a Sun Drop and a Little Debbie brownie, while surfing online and watching Game Show Network.
3:35 - While watching Family Feud, I find it a bit odd that they have a question asking what one thing you would require if negotiating a peace treaty with Iraq. Then again, maybe that's not a bad idea. "Survey says... awww, zero. Nuke 'em. Nuke 'em was the number one answer there."
5:30 - It has been raining all day. Decide to take a short nap, thinking maybe the rain will have stopped later and I can go running.
7:30 - Short nap turned into a not-so-short nap. Wake up a half hour later than I had planned. Rain has stopped, but I skip running anyway.
8:11 - My sister calls to tell me there is a baby frog plastered to the side of her house.
8:30 - Decide to fix dinner. I put a Healthy Choice meal in the oven, somehow thinking that eating healthy will make up for not running.
8:31 - While meal is cooking, I wash dishes and take the trash out to the dumpster.
8:37 - Mom calls.
8:55 - Fix a salad to go with my dinner... lettuce, pickles, pepperoni slices, shredded cheese, ranch dressing, bacon bits.
9:00 - Eat while watching something on TV. What, I can't remember.
10:00 - Surf the net and chat while watching Seinfeld.
10:35 - Turn to Letterman. Continue surfing the net.
11:00 - Nicole Kidman is on Letterman. You know, if it wasn't ever clear before, between her and Tom, she is definitely the more sane, grounded individual.
11:35 - Letterman goes off. Get ready for bed.
12:01 - This is the last time I remember looking at the clock. Craig Ferguson is telling a joke that is really funny, but I think it probably wouldn't be nearly so funny if I weren't almost asleep.
