  1. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I got Regis the last couple of seconds, not sure if I would have had time to write his name though. John’s guess of Ryan Seacrest made me want to pat him on the head and say “It was before your time.” Ryan didn’t become a household name till American Idol started in 2002. But hey, I wouldn’t be able to answer questions about television stars from my preschool days either. John is adorable in a “young enough to be my son” kind of way, and he does nothing annoying, so I’ll root for him.

    I do not understand the wild variation in difficulty of FJ questions. Sorry you got a more obscure one, @j5cochran
  3. Of all the things the Duggars do (and don’t do), online grocery pickup is considered lazy and wasteful? For one thing, comparison shopping is much easier on the laptop where you can see all the options on your screen side by side. It even tells you price per unit or ounce. Besides, Walmart is hands down the cheapest place you can shop for a full grocery list. I get sticker shock when I have to make a quick run to Kroger or Publix because I didn’t schedule a pickup in time and need groceries. Also, as previously mentioned, there’s no charge for Walmart pickup. And, also previously mentioned, no getting sidetracked and making impulse purchases. The day Walmart started grocery pickup in my town I felt like the heavens had opened and angels were singing, and my kids were no longer babies/toddlers. A pregnant mom with 2 little ones? I’d snark on her more for dragging the kids through the store unnecessarily (see: Jill hanging around in Walmart 2 hours waiting for an oil change).

    The composer category, now that would be a dream come true if I were ever a contestant. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone run a category faster than Jessica did with the Wheel of Jeopardy one. She was lightning quick!
  5. Is there such a thing as a dean’s list in law school? I thought that was only for undergraduate. I did a master’s degree and there was no dean’s list. Anyway, in law school the main thing is that your grades are high enough not to get kicked out. I have a relative who boasts of being in the bottom 10% of his law school class. I guess he can afford to brag because he made a fortune as a lawyer. This was back in the 70s though, everything is more competitive now.

    Universal Studios, actually. As a parent to 3 HP fans, I shudder to think how much money I’ve dropped there. But then FJ was also an insta-get for me, so there’s that.
  7. JD and Abbie: Captured Before the Rapture

    I know this is trivial, but I can’t stand the open teeth grin on JD. It looks creepy.
  8. The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    She studied with Dorothy DeLay? *jaw drop* I’m seriously impressed. I really hope she will encourage Jinger to get some additional music training.
  9. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Yep, only got FJ because of another online group that uses the honey badger reference often.
  10. Michelle and JimBob aka J'Chelle and Boob

    I don’t know, but JB should keep his mouth closed for pictures till the end of time. He looks way better without the horsey grin.
  11. If I didn’t already know who they were, you could tell me that was a couple of 40-year-olds and I wouldn’t question it.
  12. The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    If so, it would be a dedication, not a baptism. Baptizing babies is a big no-no in their churches.
  13. They go through the book of Proverbs once a month. There are 31 chapters, so one for each day, usually. I think it may be a Gothard thing, but I’ve noticed Derick does it too based on his tweets.
  14. I mean, I know she’s reading Proverbs 5 because it’s September 5, but why *post* it and say it’s for your husband and sons? She really is tone deaf.
