Ever-Changing Reflection

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding... It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility.

Would you leave him stranded on a glacier?


There were no surprises on The Bachelorette last night; the two guys I thought would go home, did. I agree with Ali's choices, and I'm intrigued for next week to learn which of the remaining guys has a boyfriend and gets chased off the show! I bet it's Justin... or Craig. They are the only two I can think would maybe do that. 

Let's talk about Justin... Man, he treats Ali like a world championship wrestling belt and every rose ceremony like a win in the ring. Get off the wrestling analogies. This is love. Or, it's supposed to be. When he talked about his two-on-one date with Ali and Kasey, all he could talk about was Kasey; I don't think he mentioned Ali once. At least he got it together for his alone time with Ali on the date. I am glad he got the walking cast though, because crossing that glacier on crutches would not be easy.

Kasey, Kasey, Kasey, Ali totally pinned you. You weren't in love with her, you're in love with being in love. Not even, you're in love with the idea of being in love. That tattoo was the final shovelful of dirt on your grave. Plus, you were really starting to sound suicidal.

Kirk was the cutest on his date with Ali around Reykjavik. Trying on the sweaters was cute, buying matching sweaters and mittens you could hold hands in was a little mushy, continually wearing your sweater that matches Ali's was way over the top. Dude wore it to the rose ceremony! Instead of a suit! It is a nice sweater though... for Ali.

Ali, I loved your rose ceremony gown. I want it. Even though Jed thinks the strap looks like Mickey Mouse in the front.

Girl, when a guy (Kirk) tells you he got really sick back in college from mold and asbestos exposure, don't just sit there and smile at him, then give him a kiss and tell him you like him or whatever stupid thing you said. You didn't even ask if he was ok now! C'mon. A little empathy and concern would be nice for a man you could see as your future husband.

Roberto, I want to have your children. Period. You can do no wrong in my book.

I also want to swim with Roberto in the Blue Lake. Amazing.

The tattoo joke Craig pulled before the rose ceremony was super risky. That could have gone so badly, and guy had no idea how Ali was going to react. Thankfully, you made me laugh... and Ali too.

Chris whatever your name is from Orlando, FL, don't be surprised Ali sent you packing. No one knows who you are, which means Ali doesn't either. You did nothing with the five minutes she gave you to enable her to know you better. You are awkward and weird. Just be thankful she didn't leave you stranded on a glacier while she flew off in a helicopter with The Wrestler.

Sound off in the comments if you watched last night's episode. Did you agree with who Ali sent home? Where would you rather fall in love: Iceland or Turkey? I'm going to go with Iceland because it really did look extraordinary, as Ali said. There's something incredibly romantic about snuggling up with your love when it's so cold outside, holding hands inside a mitten.

Chris N said that "something crazy about him/ his guilty pleasure" was Mexican food, really, Chris, really? Way to cut loose there? I'm with you, nothing about last night was a surprise. *Spoiler alert: Supposedly one of Justin's girlfriends makes an appearance on the show or calls in to let Ali know about him and yes, the really sad part is I just said "one of" Justin's gf's.

Sounds like a fun eppy, I haven't tuned in but it was fun to read about what is going on through your eyes!
