a cheese-fest at midnight

i went to bed last night at 2:00.

i wish i could tell you i was up reading a great novel. studying. working on my Bible study that's two days behind.

but no.

last night was the season finale of bachelor pad.

and though we didn't get fully home and showered and settled until 11:00, we had to watch.

and it's cheesy. oh boy is it awfully cheesy. and a bit staged. and dramatic to no end.

but for a girl who spends her life behind a desk, with a clear head on her shoulders and always contemplating her next rational, logical move, and a boy who spends his days in a blue collar with calloused hands, it's just the mindless escape we need.

so our plans for a morning walk were scrapped, and we spent the dawn hours pressing snooze. but there's a coffee shop near work and the promise of an early bedtime tonight, so all is well. all is well indeed.

and as the above photo illustrates, i'm clearly a hollywood groupie. and though i wouldn't exactly call the contestants stars, for my weary, sleepy self they certainly sufficed.

I stayed up late to watch it too! The drama! It sucks you in! My life seems so...boring compared to it! I say that with relief actually! Coffee here we come!

I missed the finale, I stayed up late (until 11:00) to watch Ms. Universe 2011. My eyes gave up & I couldn't watch the bachelor pad.

Hehehe, good for you! Sometimes a little mindlessness is the perfect cure for a busy week! I haven't gotten into Bachelor Pad, but I would be lying if I said I never stayed up late for a Rock of Love marathon! ;)

NICE! I'm a sucker for shows like that too. I'm really looking forward to the show New Girl too! I know that I'm going to be catching up on that one when I miss it!

Zoning out while watching some mindless show is good every once in a while. We go for the funny shows!

I would be a dead person if I stayed up until 2! But i know the feeling of being so sucked into a show you cant stop. I have a few episodes to catch up on of the lying game. Its addicting! When does the next season of bachelor come on I can barely wait!
