Natural History Museum : Part One

I'm sure it comes as no surprise that I love going to the Natural History Museum. I know the time I've spent there has had a huge influence on me and my work. I've been completely obsessed with the dioramas ever since my first field trip there when I was a kid. Oh what I wouldn't give for access to those dioramas after hours with a tripod, strobes, and a polarizer!

The Bachelor

Okay, okay! I've already gotten a handful of emails awaiting my take on last night.....

In a word I thought it was WEIRD. 

I know everyone is out there ripping on Jason, but I can't help thinking that after Brad Womack's season, these Bachelors must be required to sign a contract forcing them to pick one woman at the end. I'm thinking Jason wanted more time - As my co-watcher James muses on the ridiculousness of the concept: "dating two women, at the same time, while they know about each other, because....'one of them is your future wife'." What happened to the good ol' days with Bachelors like Matt and the Wine guy, where the girls get drunk competeing for some guy who may or may not be looking for a wife, get engaged on a whirlwind trip to an exotic place, and then People magazine breaks the story of the break-up? The show is just getting weird. Even Chris Harrison knows it.

I'm reserving final jusdgement until tonight's second ATRC, where I am sure it will get even weirder. I'm guessing a Molly proposal. I mean, it's been six months already, which is like six bachelor years.

Oh and p.s.  I think the Deanna footage was shot after the show wrapped to suggest it was her fault for giving him advice on picking the "wild card." I mean, it was the least she could do for Jason after letting him get down on one knee. She asked for him back like she was calling to check the balance on her Banana Republic card. Again, wierd.
