Last night did watch The Bachelor. For a change several things went right. First thing is the two women were sent home who had continued to shout at each other even when the B sat down next to them to try to defuse the situation. They did not get roses in the ceremony and B canceled the cocktail party during which they would have had a chance to corner him with their issues. Second thing is when super-obnoxious pocket blonde walked to B's apartment expecting to be Ms. Fedex ("when it absolutely, positively has to be there overnight") he sent her home. She was, from the start, all about winning the game, the prize could have been anyone. Look for her to resurface on one of the spin-offs, because she is super-hot for a miniature person, and provides hours of narcissistic sound clips.
Not a Thing™ but a thing, he had a fun one on one date with someone who may be his soul mate. The only Thing™ which did not happen is Southern Pageant Airhead was not exposed as the phony she is. A Thing™ which made no difference to me is the Tall Mixed Asian cheerleader/dancer sent herself home because she did not feel B could make a connection with her. She was right, but after pocket blonde left she might have had a chance.
And in other news, I did go to the pacemaker clinic this morning and found out two important things:
Thing the first: My atrial fibrillation is gone, hasn't occurred since I started taking Sotilol. The pacemaker had nothing to do with that.
Thing the second: Without the pacemaker my heart rate wants to be ~ 40 beats per minute 54% of the time it's below 60. So the pacemaker is keeping me alive. Good to know. I guess I won't have it removed after all.
Cardiologist's office called while I was en route (through a major wind and rain storm) and made an appointment for the 28th, late afternoon.
