I'm In Arizona. And I'm Watching The Bachelor. I'm Not Sure How That Happened.

Guess who's on vacation, bitches?



So I'm in Arizona visiting my parents. This has become an annual thing for me. I came out here last year and it was awesome and super cool and very drunky. But Captain Carl could not come with me because we couldn't afford it. I didn't want to come back without him this year, so we made it happen. Even though we are about 10 seconds away from being in the poor house at all times.

And so we are here and we're all driving around in the mountains and going on hikes and hanging out in the hot tub and playing tennis and things are going great and then bam! my mom turns on The Bachelor and I'm all "I hate this show!" and she's all "I love this show!" and I'm all "Blech, gross! Wait, why didn't he keep the mortician lady?" and then my high school boyfriend's mother (who is also my mother's good friend) showed up and now I'm drunk on vodka sprites.
It's been a weird day.

God, I love vacations.

Not so weird really. Whenever I watch the Bachelor, I like to get drunk. It's pretty much just how I feel about reality shows.

It's gonna be Emily in the end. Wanna bet your next Arizona vacation? Cuz I'd like to go see my sister out there, and could appreciate a total stranger paying for it. Well, not TOTAL stranger. I'm over here regularly. You KNOW me by now. Right? RIGHT?

Head over to the Musical Instrument Museum in No. Scottsdale. It's awesome. Day trip to Sedona, you won't regret it. Have fun here in our beautiful state of AZ!

See that's what happens, man. First there's the sun, then there's the booze, then suddenly, you have a FREAKING OPINION ON THE BACHELOR.

Next step is pink, elastic waisted pants and a cardigan. Just saying. Be careful.

No, I'm not bitter. Not at all. I like minus twenty. Truly.

I also hate The Bachelor.

And I watch it every week.

It's amazing what time with family and alcohol will do to your standards isn't it?
