  1. I hope Charlotte is allowed to be a tomboy, if that is her true self.
  2. Jon Gosselin and The Children

    Isn't Hannah at an age where her feelings/wishes would be taken in to account? Absent proof of Jon being an addict or abusive or otherwise unfit, if Hannah wants to live with her dad she should be able to make that choice. What kind of argument could Kate put forth that would outweigh Hannah’s wishes? Even if Hannah merely says she is happier with her dad, why shouldn’t that be enough?
  3. I am curious about the relationship that Camilla’s kids have with Charles. It had to have been hell when Camilla’s kids were young and a much-loved (by the public) Diana basically blamed their mother for her miserable marriage. I remember seeing a picture, possibly on the balcony at Buckingham Palace, where Camilla is holding one of her grandchildren, so they are to some degree accepted/included by the royal family. I wonder how visible they will be when Charles coronation takes place? I cannot imagine having your stepfather be the (future) king. How weird must that be? Of course, the Parker-Bowles kids weren’t exactly that far removed from royal circles to begin with. Eta: Found the picture I was thinking of, from the wedding in 2011, and it is Charles holding One of his step granddaughters. And Camilla’s daughter has a son named Louis, born in 2009 along with his twin, Gus.
  4. House Hunters: Buying in the USA

    “Monkey pod” is a type of tree - I’m guessing that is what she was saying.
  5. Seriously?! All the bullshit about the restaurant for that?!
  6. OMG, I am so glad someone else noticed that! Especially the high waters, a term I haven’t heard since elementary school. I think we also called them “floods”. Please don’t tell me that is a fashion trend. Not that either one of those nitwits looked very fashionable to me. Her “posing” had me laughing so hard I had to go to the bathroom.
  7. We seem to really be on a run of couples who seem to dislike each other. Those two twits in London yet again had me wondering why the hell they were a couple. I guess no one else wanted them? When did people get so delicate that kitchen colors and/or furniture causes anxiety? Suck it up, people. How will they handle the truly bad things that are bound to happen?
  8. House Hunters: Buying in the USA

    If Melbourne lady works at home, what the hell does she need with all those clothes? She can work in her pj’s and throw on a nice top when videoconferencing. Then she can sell whatever won’t fit in her half of a non-Kardashian closet and put that towards a bigger house in the future. Problem solved.
  9. (Waving from across the lake!) I live in West Michigan and we only reliably have snow on the ground from mid-December through February, with an average of 75 inches per year. (Gotta love that lake effect!) Not that we can’t get snow earlier or later, but it usually doesn’t last. I would never consider myself “outdoorsy”, but those that do (like most of the gripers on HHI) don’t seem to have any problem amusing themselves. Now, those that say they are tired of shoveling - that I totally understand.
  10. That thing that they put on the open staircase looked more dangerous than leaving things alone. Looked like a kid could hang themself from it. I have two major beefs with the storyline in episodes like this one: A) The “we love to be outdoors but live in the upper Midwest and it is too cold for 3 months out of the year” bullshit. A true outdoors person can find many things to do outside in winter - hiking, fishing, camping, skiing, sledding, snowshoeing, tubing, snowmobiling, etc. Then, of course, there is just playing outside (snowball fights, building forts). Hell, I even see people riding bikes in the winter. Put on the right clothes, haul your ass outdoors and quit whining. B) The parents who claim to be moving to another country for the kids’ benefit, especially when the kids are quite young. Your toddler doesn’t give a damn about the “culture”. Mom and/or Dad want to live abroad and that is the reason for the move. (Not talking about the ones who get transferred overseas for work.) It is especially galling when one or both parents seem peeved that they can’t live in a shack in the middle of the jungle (“their dream”) and resent having to accommodate their child’s needs. I wish they would only do episodes where people are actually buying, not renting. When they complain about some aspect being unsafe for Junior, all I can think is it’s not like they are stuck there forever. Find someplace without whatever deathtrap they are worried about, then move to a more “dangerous” place when the rugrats are older.
  11. I don’t understand why Grover gave Tani credit for the DNA match on the crucifix/cross. I would think it would be SOP for the lab to test all clothing/jewelry/accessories that a murder victim had with them in every case. It isn’t like DNA is a new thing that the guys at the lab would have to be reminded to check.
  12. House Hunters Renovation: Tool Time!

    Maybe the plan is to move there at some point - when the girls are older, retirement, etc. Or they could live there full time in the summer and rent it out on occasion.
  13. House Hunters: Buying in the USA

    How much was the house they bought? Mid 250’s? I wonder why they picked the two houses in Rockford (or the Rockford area, more likely) as decoys? It just seemed odd to pick two houses in the same small town, a town they were not looking to live in. Unless the realtor is based there. Can’t remember his name or I would look him up. The houses in Rockford are probably cheaper now, after the water issues that have been discovered there.
  14. I wouldn’t mind living near a cemetery, as long as it was gated at night. ( To keep rowdy teens out, not to keep the residents in.) I think a well-kept cemetery would be a nice place to take a stroll.
  15. Right after David Bromstad won Design Star, there was a one-off show where we saw David being coached by a woman who kept pushing him to be “more” - louder, more exuberant and ,IMO, more obnoxious. At the time I thought they were ruining him. They took a nice guy with a pleasant personality and turned him into an annoying TV “personality”.
