It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged. Clayton has commissioned me, as King of Christmas Joy, to write a good number of Christmas posts. And that is going to happen. I’d planned on starting on Friday before leaving for a few days experiencing Christmas time in New York City. While I was beginning this post, the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut happened. As I was plugged in, absorbing the news (true and false) as it rolled in, I was in no place and it was no time to post about Christmas joy during the holidays.

The Golden Globe nominations came out this morning. For the complete list of nominees along with analysis and thoughts from Palmer, Clayton, and I, check out this post.

TV has no shortage of bachelor related material these days.
We have The Bachelor and The Bachelorette bringing millions of women and most likely millions of men to their TVs every Monday. When one of those two programs isn’t airing, we have Bachelor Pad filling in as the black sheep of the three, catering to the people that need real trash, not just mushy love trash to watch every week. Of course you would think since about 11 months of the year are covered by these three shows, there wouldn’t be a need for anything else like this, right?
