Everybody Makes Mistakes, But Usually The Mistakes Are Not Quite This Awesome

Until around 9:34pm this evening, I thought (foolishly) that this had been the best part of my day:

new green coat from H&M

And then, during a commercial break in Grey's Anatomy, I discovered this. And just like that, my new spring coat---despite costing only $35 at H&M and also, I am quite sure, being the color of heaven itself---became the second best part of my day. How wrong I was before 9:34pm! How ill-informed!

Because you know what that means, don't you? It means it's time to bring back Secret Bachelor Tuesdays! AND THIS TIME, EACH EPISODE WILL BE NINETY MINUTES LONG. I'm not sure if it's possible to die of excitement, but I'm writing my will right now.

1. Love the coat and I envy you with the burning fire of a thousand volcanos for having an H&M.

2. I am not doing boot camp or running a triathalon for any man! They can run for me. Those women are nuts!

I love that coat, so pretty for spring. And on the bachelor-he is perfect, he must have a serious defect of some kind, or he's a complete jerk. His bio reads like any single girl's Christmas list!

I have tried to like the Bachelor but to no avail. But I do however, like Secret Bachelor Tuesdays! I can't wait!

Remember those Days of the Week songs from the Mickey Mouse Club? (Hey, you have your knickers, I have classic television) Well, I am going to be singing the Tuesday Song from now till April 3rd!

Thank you, thank you, American Broadcasting Corporation!

P.S. Nice coat.

oh Holly, THAT's how I found this blog back than. Because I was secretely tivo-ing the Bachelor and watching it when nobody else was around. But I couldn't see the finale because I was in Holland for a month. And I couldn't bare the suspense any longer and was too embarrassed to call back to the States and ask anybody to tivo the last episode of the Bachelor. I didn't want to come out of the closet on the last week. So I had to Google and "met" you.

I wasn't going to watch this round Bacherol-shows, but now that you will bring back Bachelors Tuesdays, I will have to. Twist my arm.

oh GOD my bofriend is going to love this news...

I'm right there with you, Holly....SECRET being the operative word here. Although, come to think of it, I've been watching The Hills now with absolutely no shame and no hiding...

I adore the coat; I must have it. You should wear it WHILE watching The Bachelor, and have a complete joy overload.

I love it. He's a "humanitarian." He probably meant to say "Unitarian" and all hell broke loose.

Hello, hell-O!!! What a hottie! *chuckling while typing* Yeah, I hear ya. The Bachelor rocks. And I'm married!! :D LOL

That coat rocks, too. You have the awesomest stuff, dangit! I need cool stuff. I'm sick of my clothes.

Boy, the mixed emotions I am having. I get to see the most perfect coat ever which I will never ever fit into and so a little part of me hates you with a fiery passion because you are so pretty and have the best clothes and a great boyfriend and a PINK! KitchenAid and you're also brilliant.

But then I saw that there would be Secret Bachelor Tuesdays again and the little part of me that adores you for all of the above reasons is doing a happy dance and accidentally trampled over the other little part. There will be an inquest later today. But nobody really liked the jealous, bitchy old cow part so I'm sure everything will be okay.

Yeah. I am a freak. I've known for years.

Meg, I think he probably just wrote "human" on the form when they asked him his nationality, because he didn't understand the question, and the Bachelor producers took the liberty of adding "-itarian" to make him more interesting.

Also, I think I should clarify: I do not find the Bachelor in the least bit attractive. His teeth are too white. No, my excitement at the show's return is not to do with HIM, per se, but because of the glorious schadenfreude this will provide us all when we meet the 25 bimbo airheads vying to be his wife. I bet you 38% of them will spell their names with an "i" when a "y" would have done just as well. Also, three quarters of them will be Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders, with maybe a pediatrician thrown in for good measure (she will wear glasses.)

At last, with the glorious return of The Bachelor, Monday nights will be worth living again! And Tuesday mornings even more so!

i am beyond thrilled about the return of the bachelor, mostly because you will be back in the country for secret bachelor tuesdays. last season just wasn't the same without your updates. but i'm sure trekking through southeast asia was worth it.

My roommate told me that The Bachelor is starting up again. And she told me in the same way that one might announce winning the lottery. We do love our horrible reality TV...

I knew that something had been missing from my life for a while, I just couldn't put my finger on it. Until now. (By that I mean Secret Bachelor Tuesdays, but I have also just found out that the city I am moving to has an H&M, so there's that too.)

H&M!

Pangs of jealousy are overwhelming me from my terribly uncool midwest locale.

*Sigh.* No Madonna-designed clothes for me.

You know the first thing I thought, after seeing the commercial slide by in fast-forward, was YOU, right? Like, "Is Holly going to bring back Secret Bachelor Tuesdays?" And since God is in his heaven and all's right with the world, you ARE! I can't wait. I never even watched The Bachelor until I couldn't stand being left out of understanding your snark.

Oh, and your coat is delicious. Just perfect!
