or... "when thomas edison was asked of the hundreds of failures it took to finally create the light bulb he responded that he never felt he had failed but rather simply had found hundreds of ways of not making light bulbs"
*******AN EXPERIMENT GONE AWRY*******
Maybe this is blogger-cheating, but I trimmed away some of the excess fat.
What follows below is not the live blog.
It is slightly more coherent. Kind of.
Sincerest apologies. Kind of.
We're walking back from practice. Two blocks away. Cougars. Kittens.
"This could be my guy!"
"I'm young, I'm deathly hot. DEAL WITH IT."
On the Thallo-couch: Matt, Erica, Jamie, Seth, and yours truly.
On the TV: all of our dreams coming true
Mr. Kelly Ripa.
Is she a cougar or a kitten?
"I've never dated someone old before."
"You mean older."
"Have you been looking for the one lately?"
The girlfriend just arrived!!
Seth: This has been one of the slower episodes.
Sarah (GIRLFRIEND): There's only been three!
Seth: It's been the slowest of the three.
Tessa is just one of the girls in the sea of women who haven't gotten to know Mark.
She made that up on the spot.
Erica: I've been saying things!! Why don't you write them down??
Slowest. Of. The. Three.
Girlfriend: "I don't think it's so bad!!! I think it only seems slow because you think you have to post about it."
Girlfriend: "I said that with love in my heart!!!"
The cougars: "The 20 year olds think we have cellulite... but you know what? WE ROCK."
Swim time for the laaaaaaaaaaaadies. And they love it!
MARK IS SWIMMING IN A SEA OF CELLULITE. AND HE LOVES IT!
WE LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!
Seth: Mark's kinda pervy.
Jamie: A little bit.
I forgot to ask Matt to write a haiku for all of this.
Jen is starting to reaaaaaaaallly have feelings for Mark. She said so.
"The 20s better watch out. GAME ON."
You know. Go Jen. I'm okay with Jen.
"Every week you get funnier! You make me feel like a little kid!"
Jayanna will definitely take it.
Kelly is staying. We are upset.
I'm not allowed to transcribe what's going on here. My mom reads this.
Maybe other moms, too!
And there goes another nobody.
Girlfriend: HE'S KICKING OFF ALL THE WRONG GIRLS!
Me: It doesn't matter. She wasn't going anywhere.
Girlfriend: BUT WHAT ABOUT KELLY??? SHE'S AWFUL!!!
Me: She's spicy?
Erica: You mean Elvira.
But let's take a moment for Cougar Lynn who was just kicked off:
"My Grandma has always said she wanted to live long enough to see me get married."
Seth: We can't make fun of that!!!!
Matt: Oh man.
....tears on the television set.
We can't make fun of that. We definitely shouldn't make fun of that.
And that's it!
20s and 40s moving in with each other next week.
I'm sure we won't be live-blogging it.
