I Stand Corrected.

Okay, before I delve into the EXTREME discomfort I felt during this evening's Bachelorette I have a few more comments about Statcounter.

First: I don't mind having people look at my family blog at all, so please don't be afraid to ask if you would like to continue looking at it. I am sure the majority of our viewers were friends or friends of friends or photographers, etc, and I don't mind it one bit. It's just the creepy wierdos from around the world that download pictures of my kids for devious reasons. Eek!

Second: Statcounter will give you OODLES of info, like IP addresses, locations, who's downloading, their IP address, where in the world they are's more info than even I can handle!!

Alright. Bring on the awkwardness from the evening.


So. I have to hand it to Mike for pointing out to me that the initials 'E. D.' not only stand for the unfortunate condition that requires a little blue pill to cure, also spells Ed. Genius!!! But also very, very sad. Poor, sweet Ed. Thoughtful Ed, who flew his parents to Hawaii in the most wonderful gesture to meet Jillian and fullfill her biggest desire which was to meet his family...and then he BOMBED in the bedroom. Seriously, what a jerk to tease her all day with those SUPER sexy swim shorts (snort) only to let her down when it counted. Seriously??? How is he supposed to EVER live this down??? Eveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr????????????? His life is ruined. Over. Unless....Jillian keeps him until the end. I have a lot of speculation over this, so let's move on for now and then come back to this.

So I titled this post 'I Stand Corrected' because I was so wrong about Reid being the guy with, um, E.D. However, I was so not wrong when it came to him being the one sent home. I wanted to cry right along with them as they sobbed on eachother's shoulders. I have a theory that she knew she wouldn't pick Reid if it had come down to him and Kiptyn, so she decided to take that chance with Ed, just in case. It was still very sad, though.

It seems that everything went swimmingly on Jillian and Kiptyn's date. I have to admit that I am concerned about her if she chooses Kiptyn. I am worried that he isn't sure of how he feels about her, and that could end up hurting her in the end. But....I am not sold on Ed, either. Compaired to Wes, they are both WINNERS, so that does comfort me a bit. :)

Men tell all next week....Can't wait to see Wes again!!

First off Mike's ED comment is hilarious! Secondly, spence was totally coveting Ed's "mankinis!" Third, what is the "confession" in three weeks? Does Reid come back and propose or tell her he loves her? We still love Ed. I am with you 100% on Kiptyn, I like him and he is cute, but I would bet it won't last. I don't blame Ed for having ED in the bedroom - I mean she had probably slept with two other guys the two days before, that would be a little unsettling, I would think! Can't wait for 2 weeks!

I am devastated that she sent Reid home. I think he comes back in two weeks and tells her he loves her and she is confused all over again. Yes, I think she will chose Kiptyn over Ed but honestly his family worries me. Talk about stuffy! I know this is wishful thinking but I want her to take Reid back when he comes to tell her he loves her. Don't get me wrong, I love Kiptyn but there's something about him that is too perfect. I would be afraid to give him my heart for fear he would break it.

Ha Ha! I'm so glad the short-shorts are being discussed! I was in awe of them the whole time! And it was SO awkward for me to watch Jillian topless in the tub with Reid or her and Ed rubbing oil all over each other! I know I've commented on this a million times before but I think it's so weird that they try to make it "normal" that she is having sex with three guys in one week. If that's not confusing your emotions I don't know what is!

P.S. I miss Reid!

Wow, I was so shocked that it was ED with the night drama! They sure do twist things around on that never know what you're gonna get. I do think that they had a great date and make a cute couple, but we'll see what happens. I was sad to see Ried go because I think they laugh a lot together, but I also wasn't super surprised. Ried just never could tell her how he felt and I don't blame her for not wanting to take that chance!

In one of the flash forward scenes last week, I heard kiptyns voice in background saying that for the first time he wasn't sure about Jillian anymore. I think that might be the "confession" that he tells Jillian in a few weeks? I don't know. He is darling, but totally the type to decide last minute that he's not into her. Crazy. I'm with you though...totally excited for the men tell all to see Wes again so everyone can put him in his place!

I liked Ried, darn it. Ed's shorts were way to short. YUCK! I'm sure alcohol helps with the whole sleeping with three guys in one week thing...maybe her and Ed didn't get enough of it? LOL. She mentioned they were both sunburned. Hmmmm. I don't get it. Can't wait to see what the "confession" is...

Well one thing I have to say is the episodes don't get boring now do they! I'm sad that Reid left but I wasn't surprised... when he started talking about his feelings in the limo I could have kicked him because that is all he needed to say to Jullian on the date! A little late!! I totally guessed that Ed was the one with issues poor dude! I thought it was VERY smart of him to fly his family out to meet Julian that scored BIG points. I totally agree with Erin above about being topless ihe tub and rubbing oil on Ed. I kept saying um hello!! There is a camera in the room :) SO AWKWARD!

OMG, those shorts were KILLING me!!! The 70's called and they want their outfit back. The airline from Spain to Hawaii must have lost his luggage and he ended up having to borrow clothes from Jillian...seriously...who wears that...on national television??

I must admit as soon as I saw him in those shorts I figured he was the one with the, um, problem. Sorry Ed. Hopefully it was just the sunburn.

I hated to see Reid go but seriously dude...lack of communication isn't good in a relationship.

I hope Kiptyn wins. He seems like the most down-to-earth, no problems in the bedroom kinda guy, lol.

Although I've read some pretty surprising spoilers lately so we'll have to see what happens.
