Bachelor Recap, Nick, Ep. 3: Still Tastes Fine

Shout out to Morgan W. for sending me caffeine money on Venmo last Tuesday. I was dangerously close to pulling a Corinne and staying in bed instead of writing the recap, but that Venmo notification on my phone gave me the strength I needed to write about Nick cupping a 24-year-olds bare bosoms. You’re a real doll, Morgan. Thank you. [To my other readers, I’m still gladly accepting Starbucks money on Venmo in order to get through these recaps. No shame in my game.] I was really looking forward to the beginning of this week’s episode, because we were...

Bachelor Recap, Nick, Ep. 2: Never a Bridesmaid

I almost forgot to watch The Bachelor last night because Snowpocalypse 2017 has brought upon such severe cabin fever that I barely remember my own name, much less what day it is, but thank god for Nick’s incessant self-advertisements on Instagram. Speaking of Instagram, I’m really into Becca and Robert’s relationship. Side note. [My new weekly disclaimer: I’m fairly certain that all most of the people on this show are smart, kind, wonderful human beings who’ve been lured into momentary insanity by editors, producers, and unlimited wine. I actually really like Nick, think the girls are all beautiful in their own ways,...

Bachelor Recap, Nick, Ep. 1: Dolphins Are Just Gay Sharks

I have a couple of apologies to make right off the bat. First, to Taylor M., who sent me caffeine money on Venmo back in September, and I never thanked her. Taylor, I don’t know who you are or where you’re from, but THANK YOU. Your name has been in an email in my inbox as a reminder to thank you for the last four months, and I’ll miss seeing it every morning. Please forgive my tardiness. If you want to get a thank you four months later, as well, please feel free to find me, Shannon Leyko, on Venmo...

2016 Wasn’t 100% Bad, You Guys

If I see one more post personifying 2016 with a “You’re the worst!” post on my timeline, I’m going to go berserk. Not because it’s entirely untrue (I mean, it’s been a pretty bleak 12 months…), but because can we all PLEASE get a little more creative?! Speaking about the year like it’s a pesky human was funny the first 5 times I saw it, but after literally all 2,000 of my friends wrote the exact same post after the deaths of Alan Thicke, Carrie Fisher, and Debbie Reynolds, I was really craving an old fashion “RIP” post with out a...

I’ve Written Literally Half of War & Peace in 10 Months

It’s a weird feeling to not have posted anything in over a week. I guess when I told myself (and you all) that I would slow down with the amount of posts I publish each week, my brain went into party mode. It probably doesn’t help that A) it’s the holidays, and B) given the chance, I will do nothing but play with my puppy for as long as she’ll stay awake, then stare at her for as long as she’ll stay asleep. You see, guys, I’ve written 209 posts in the past 10 months since first deciding to post 5...
