I know...I said I wouldn't, but I have to. I'm referring to last night's episode of The Bachelor. This show has become the bane of my existence.
I have decided it would probably be in my best interest not to express my true feelings on the matter. Somewhere in the world authorities arrest people like me for saying the things I would like to. I mean, c'mon, the guy in Iraq who threw a shoe at President Bush is fighting for his life. A shoe is not exactly what I had in mind for Jason.
I heard a collective 'gasp' from around the world when Jason decided his "feelings have changed" and kicked Melissa to the curb on national television (nice). And we all thought he was such a classy guy. How can you not want to give Melissa a huge group hug? Yea, she's ticked and maybe a few other things too, but she left that show with her dignity in tact. You go, Girl. I think your fan club grew ten fold.
As far as Molly is concerned (or "Mol" as Jason calls her) everyone knows where I stand with her. If not, you can refer to my previous post here for more details. Instead of rehashing what has already been said, let's make this post come full circle, shall we? I mean, this is a stamping blog, right? If you don't mind, I'd like to have a brief dialogue with Molly for a moment...
"Hey Mol, it's clear you have a creative side to you. When you presented that scrapbook to Jason, I saw your potential. Cute book - really it was. I could tell you put your heart into it. Are you interested in "steppin' it up a notch"? 'How?', you ask. Let me tell you...My name is Mary Ann Reiner and I am an Independent Demonstrator and Creative Coach for Stampin' Up! and I can help your scrapbooks come alive! I teach monthly classes in my home in addition to holding workshops in your home (or mine). I'd love to come over and show you and a few of your friends (like Melissa, Jillian and few other gal pals from the show) Stampin' Up!'s fabulous product line. I know when you see how versatile our products are and how everything coordinates you'll be hooked. I could tell you liked markers and cutting out shapes. I'd love to introduce you to the Big Shot. The die-cut possibilities with this magnificent machine are endless.
Good luck to you and your new beau. Based on his history, I'm not sure he's "all that", but hey, it's your life, not mine. From one step mom to another, don't go messin' up Ty's life. Your job is to give him roots and wings, not to be his pal. Perhaps you could start by teaching him a few lessons on commitment and tact. He appears to be lacking a role model in this regard.
So, in the mean time, let me give you this beautiful catalog to look at. I'll call you in a few days to see when you'd like to get a few friends together. It's a great time to host a workshop! Stampin' Up! is in the middle of their biggest promotion of the year. Who doesn't like to receive FREE products!
Have a great day.
