Bachelorette Bits: Torn between two lovers

You guys, I’m not kidding, since the episode ended I’ve had the chorus to that old 1976 song by Mary MacGregor in my head on a loop. (And don’t even tell me you don’t know the song or I’ll have my Stretch Armstrong beat you up.) “Torn between two loverrrrs…feeling like a fool. Lovin’ both…

A letter to my Bachelor recap fans…

Dear faithful YMFT Bachelor recap fans, I have good news for you. Sort of. (Here’s the part where I get you excited for a second and then [possibly] let you down gently.) You might remember how I’ve repeatedly said I won’t recap The Bachelorette anymore since I recapped Des’ season two years ago and lost half my…

DWTS Season 20 – Who’s got what it takes?

I don’t like to toot my own horn (much) but when I was little I was quite the dancer. Hoofer, if you will. For years I danced in front of packed houses of cheering audiences as part of the cast of Annie, Oklahoma, Sound of Music, and my favorite dance show, A Chorus Line. The fact…

Academy Awards 2015 – Awesome and Awkward

Well, folks, another year is in the books and I’m as disappointed in myself as I am—once again—in parts of the show. (It’s okay, NPH won’t see this.) Why so hard on myself? Because it’s 11:00 p.m. and I’ve only had one measly glass of wine since sitting down to watch these never ending festivities…

Binge Watching — The new kind of hangover

It seems that lately everyone’s bingeing. I’m not talking about with Two Buck Chuck or Kettle Chips or Mini M&Ms (because I certainly wouldn’t know anything about that); I’m talking about television. Come on. You know you’re doing it. And just like drinking too much cheap Chardonnay or eating the entire bag of Salt &…

An embarrassment of riches

You guys, I have more good news. It’s been a bit of an embarrassment of riches around here over the past month what with the new book and the new blog design and home, and I now I have even more news that I’ve been dying to share with all of you that I haven’t…

Academy Awards Recap: Awesome & Awkward

  Full disclosure: It’s 11:15 p.m. and I’ve had two large Appletinis. I’m getting punchy. In my defense: • Today was YMFT’s TWO YEAR BLOGIVERSARY, so obviously — Mascot Appletini. • I re-pulled the same damn muscle in my back for the third time in two weeks and cannot bend over, cough, sneeze or laugh without pain or…
