Andrew Firestone still has not contacted me

And I thought we had a connection! I was sure he was going to give me a rose!

Here's the extent of our conversation: I was on the floor petting his dog before I knew whose dog it was. The dog was really sweet and just laying there like a fallen deer. Andrew said, Yeah, be careful, he's a real killer. I said, Yeah, he's super aggressive. Then Andrew said something about the tile, how it wouldn't stay up without him or something. That's it. That is my entire brush with faux fame except for later when I asked him what the dog's name is and another time when I mentioned that my notes on the different wines were unintelligible. He said, Well, that's good. That means you're having fun. And yet somehow, it just felt right...It just felt like we shared something meaningful, you know? Luckily, I was au natural--no make-up, ill fitting shirt, baggy jeans, wild hair, and pit stains. I was my real self, the self I never want to be in front of anyone remotely attractive (except for Shawn--he's used to it). But what about my inner beauty, Andrew? Well, that's pretty rough as well, most of the time.

I've tried watching The Bachelor Rome but I just don't like the guy. He's all haircut. Andrew was at least funny, even if they did make him say the same stupid things each week. On the very first episode: "This is the hardest decision I've had to make yet." Next show, "No, wait. This is the hardest decision I have ever made." Following week: "I cannot believe how very hard this decision is to make." I think they just start mixing up the same words. "Believe how hard this making of the decision is for me." And there is no Jen on this show like in III. We all liked Jen. We rooted for her. The last three girls were: a religious virgin, a crazy bride who already has her wedding dress, and a blond girl with the personality of a Pez dispenser. I think he nixed the crazy one.

This cracked me up. Aimee, I love how you have a glass of wine and go up to all sorts of faux famous people with no self-consciousness. Like, who was that famous guy that you met while at a work function at the PSFS building back in July?

I actually love watching this bachelor because he is such a fool. It's fun for the whole family (even jim!) to make fun of him.

It was Michael Jackson's dad. He was easy to approach b/c I couldn't care less about him. He was pretty friendly though. I bet if I'd worked it a little harded, I could've gotten him to buy me a
