S06.E03: Rough Landings

I was so disturbed by the conversation between Jay and his daddy that I actually want to petition the US Government to issue the following travel advisory for Jamaica:  

Exercise increased caution in Jamaica due to fuckbois. Some areas have increased risk such as resort hotels, local bars, nightclubs, and casinos. Keep your hearts and legs closed to anyone going by the nickname Skins, Skinz or Gyalis (or any variation thereof). 

Don't get me wrong Larissa is still leagues above what Colt would or should be able to pull anywhere in the world but I can't say I find her facially beautiful. Great figure, decent hair (if a bit too dark) but an okay face. I got admit the Larissa/Colt/Mother scenes are so ridiculously awkward and surreal that they almost come off as a SNL sketch to me. I find myself thinking that Larissa is John Leguizamo and half anticipating he is about to snatch off his wig at any moment.

I think Larissa/Colt/Mother were all different kinds of terrible. I do cut Larissa a bit of slack since she did just get off a 20 hr flight from Brazil to LV to be greeted by an empty handed fiance and driven in an Instapot pressure cooker of a car thru the barren wasteland that its non-strip LV. However, my instincts are telling me that Larissa is gonna be a real pill. 

I do hope Larissa/Colt/Mother scenes were filmed around Christmas, otherwise, the snowmen in the corner seem even more creepy and out of place. 

I'm dying to know if Eric drives right past all the wonderous sights and attractions in NYC str8 to the PA Cabin in the Woods, and yes I mean the acclaimed horror movie. 

Imam heading down to Punta Cana right after Thanksgiving and will give you a full report on the love rat/sanky panky situation there. I am a prime target as I am a chunky middle aged American who doesn't wear a wedding ring. My BF is a big fan of the show too and thinks that this will be a riot.

Mama Debbie is really good at playing the poor victim role. She immediately takes offense at everything Larissa says. Get your own life, Mama Debbie. Don't depend on Coltee for your social life and don't expect Larissa to be your cheerleader and to fall into that role. Why should she? Mama Debbie opens up a can of Dinty Moore Beef stew, adds salt and pepper, pours it into a melamine bowl, and acts like she has created a gourmet meal from scratch. So sad. The house looks terrible with the slot machine, the 4 foot tall stuffed snowmen in the bare living room, the clutter on the kitchen counters, the horrible bedding on the beds. Did you get a load of that brownish gray blanket on the bed in the "master suite"? The whole place is depressing. I think Mama Debbie thought she would live out the rest of her days with her and Coltee eating Beef Stew a la Debbie alone in that house and sharing scintillating conversation. She isn't happy about anyone coming in and breaking up the couple.  

I don’t think Colt wanted any change either, except for the addition of sex. He’s not going to give control or access to his finances to Larissa. Debbie will be Colts proxy on ahopping trips and expenditures of money. Unless and until Larissa is contributing financially to the household, she’s not getting any control over how money is spent.

Find out about the heavy sack and report back!

Giggled over this for far too many minutes, because it reminded me of a line from the movie "Private Benjamin" (starring Goldie Hawn), which always makes me laugh:

Sgt. Ross: "Beware...there are mine fields out there. Most of them are inert. However, some of them are ert."

LOL!

 

Believe it or not, that's actually where I got the idea for "vertent." Private Benjamin is one of my favorite movies!

Larissa:  Let's get more of the Dinty Moore Beef Stew.

Debbie:  No.  Colt said to get the store brand.  It's 6 cents cheaper.

To be fair, we don't know if Debbie just opened up a can, or if she actually made Beef Stew.  Homemade can be quite good.

I make delicious beef stew from scratch but I would never want it (or any kind of hot heavy stew) in 100-degree heat.

If the house is air conditioned (and I would assume it is), then I wouldn't care.  I love soup all the time.  Bums me out that a lot of places around here stop serving it in the summer.

Isn’t Vegas famous for the huge buffets that only cost a couple bucks? I recall going to Reno and they had buffets with all kinds of food, including prime rib and.i think you could get  big steaks in some restaurants, they are towns of excess.

Beef  stew in a slow cooker, unmmm yummy, like you say if your house is air conditioned and you aren’t going out sit in the hot sun or exercise,  pass me a big ole  bowl!!

Thank you for saying this.  Debbie appears to be at home all day, and there's no reason to believe she didn't make the stew from scratch.  It might be delicious, despite its appearance in Coltie's Corel ramekin.  Regular pot-au-feu, maybe.  Debbie looks haggard and sort of unhealthy, and I think her appearance is prejudicing some of us against her.  Of course (imo) Larissa Gummies is no beauty queen.

Wait...how is this your grandmother if she had only one child, your uncle? Wouldn't she have to be the mother of your mother or father to be your grandmother?

Apologies if this has already been addressed but my guess is that the grandfather is OP's "blood" grandfather and grandmother may have been a second wife who the OP still regarded as her grandmother ... I know in my family's case, my mother died quite young and my dad remarried a significantly younger woman, and my stepmom is really the only grandma my daughter has ever known (and gets the extra credit benefit of her grandma still being alive and well when most of the other relatives from that generation are long gone).

There was something about Coltie holding the ramekin up to his face and eating that rubbed me the wrong way. I might eat a bowl of ice cream or something that way as a snack if I am away from the table, maybe on the sofa. If I eat at the table I will eat my meal with fork (and/or knife) and plate on the table.  Just me? Am I being too stuffy?

Larissa should be given some slack. After all,  the poor woman has to do the sex with Coltie. She probably has to close her eyes and think of the Green Card.

Poor Debbie looks as if she has had a very hard life. I would like to know her back story.

I’m watching the rerun now to catch little bits I missed, after reading everyone’s thoughts here.

No way is Leida’s family rich. It took them forever to get off the plane, Dad was complaining about having to sit in a seat for so long. If they were in first class, they’d have had seats that recline into a bed, and they’d have been the first ones out the door. I also think they hope their hapless daughter now has someone else to look after her. I am betting they put on a good show when Eric came over to visit and met them. There’s just no way these people are rich.

THIS!  I make homemade beef stew and I had some this morning for breakfast.  But it wasn’t 100° here today;  it snowed today in Colorado and it was the perfect cold weather food to eat.

  When you have big tits, you have to hold the food closer to your mouth to avoid a mess on the maroon mountains' majesty.

My husband being from Cleveland - that’s what he says about Pittsburgh. He’s an avid - see bitter sports fan. I’m not even supposed to use Heinz ketchup (I do - it’s far superior to the other brands).

LOL!  Yeah, I agree about the Heinz!

I live in North Central PA, and feel more at home in Philly than I do Pittsburgh.  I don't give two craps about sports.  But they have different ways out there, which is fine, but they're not kind about it if you're out there visiting and unaware.  I had a boss that was in this area from Greensburg because her husband was transferred to a facility nearby.  She complained constantly about how much our area sucked, how much better Greensburg/Pittsburgh area was, and made fun of everything we did, what we had to eat, the way we talked (when she had far more oddball terms, mannerisms, etc)…..  I've never experienced that with anyone from the Philly area.  I lived in NE Ohio for a few years, and love the Cleveland area.  

As a native, I offer my sincere apologies.  I promise you, we're not all like that!  "Yinzers" are an embarrassment to all of us.  As for your boss....tell her that we do NOT consider Greensburg to be a part of the Pittsburgh area.  It's not even in the same county for goodness sakes.  And NO area has more oddball terms than we do; I promise you that.

I spent a lot of time in Greensburg when I worked for Verizon and I can't imagine anyone throwing shade about how sophisticated the area is. And I stayed in the Harrison Ford room so I am fancy!

In the very first scene with Cole and Debbie, she was serving him breakfast and he was complimenting her cooking.

Mr. Funky had an aunt who lived in Pittsburgh proper.  She was a sweet person, but it seems most people I come across are "Yinzers" as you mentioned.

She would return home many weekends to visit her family (a good 4-5 hour drive each way), and come back with magazines showing local happenings, theater, art, etc, and whine about how much devoid our area was of that kind of thing, and how miserable she was.  In the end, we call complained about her a ton to the owner about her oddball policies on things (like pooling our work in to a "work box" and then pulling things out of it to do - just bizarre - and how we were NOT allowed to verbally ask things - it all had to be done in writing on 3 part forms), so he gave her the choice to leave of her own choice, or be let go.  She left.  After she left, we found a notebook in her drawer (we were legitimately looking for something) that she would take in to the bathroom with her.  It was full of nasty comments about us, but they were pathetic, like she didn't like someone's glasses, and someone had stinky food for lunch, etc.  Last I checked, they were back in Greensburg.  She flipped her lid one day because she went to a restaurant and ordered chicken pot pie.  She loudly yelled "THEY GAVE ME SOUP!".  Yep, this is Dutch Country, and you get PA Dutch Pot Pie here - which is similar to Chicken And Dumplings in the south.  It's a broth with chicken, potatoes, and squares of doughy goodness.  A good place will also do ham and beef.  We all told her that all she had to do is order a "Meat Pie".  You'd have thought she had been asked to run over puppies with her car or something.

Everything in Vegas (?Reno) was cheap when the Mafia was running things. I think it all changed sometime in the 80s. ?Reagan administration.
