    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    My ex once dragged me to one of his math classes because I didn’t believe his stories about the professor’s antics. (I was right, he was exaggerating.) But it was a huge lecture class in a theater-style hall with plenty of extra seats; neither the professor nor the other students seemed to notice (or care about) one more person. If I’d arrived and it turned out to be a smaller class, I’d have turned around and walked out — I’d be embarrassed to interrupt a small class.
  2. I had a job in the ‘90s where we always spelled “folks” as “folx” as a joke about a former coworker who couldn’t spell ... her clothes in the therapy picture would have fit right in there, too, if she’d been wearing jeans.

    S10:04 Kody's Shocking Move

    I haven’t had a chance to watch this yet — what does Christine think people in Seattle live in? My mom grew up in Seattle and claims someone once asked her if everyone lived in tipis around the foot of the Space Needle. Hopefully that rumor hasn’t stuck around this long ...

    Christine Brown: She Wanted a Family, Not Just the Man

    I think the fruity pebbles are supposed to be toppings for the waffles — like sprinkles, to go with the whipped cream.
  5. I still can’t figure out if she’s trying to pick on people who buy bottled water, or people who use plastic reusable water bottles.

    S07.E07: Brandon's Story LIVE CHAT

    Can I just say how happy I am to have this thread to read on the bus home today? (I’m on the West coast.) I had a lousy day today, my work computer literally fell apart (as in, it’s currently in multiple pieces), it’s freezing, and there’s a loud talker on the bus who won’t shut up. I saw that people were talking in here and it’s rather ridiculous how much better I felt when I realized I’d have this to distract me. So thank you, everyone!

    At least they have a set of stock phrases they can use — just borrow some from all the birthday messages. Servant’s heart (won’t say who he’s serving), love for the Lord (just not actions that would follow), doting father (iffy husband), and so on. Doesn’t have to mean anything, just has to sound good.

    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    Moving over from Jinger’s thread because it has nothing to do with the Duggars ... We have something similar in our front hall for baseball hats — it uses 3M Command Hooks, not clothespins, but it works really well. Mr. Blevins is tall, so the top row is right up where crown molding would go (if our 1960s box had crown molding), so nobody accidentally knocks them down. We managed to fit two rows between the ceiling and the top of the coat rack. Not that it seemed to reduce the number of baseball hats sitting around, unfortunately.

    I can’t believe I remember this, but I think Michelle promoted a company that did the pants-into-skirt thing for a while. https://www.whig.com/story/25895851/tv-family-members-wear-hannibal-made-jean-skirts#

    Jessa a week from now: “It’s not a relationship until you’re married! It’s just a friendship before that!”

    Other than the driving, I actually know someone who would be perfect for him. Sadly, she’s already married. To one of my cousins.

    Small Talk: The Polygamous Cul-de-Sac

    I think I may need an intervention. I went to Goodwill to get some vases and left with a LuLaNo dress and some loud patterned leggings. I’m trying to decide whether there’s hope for me yet, or I’m too far gone. I did find the vases, at least.

    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    I’m on the other side of Seattle in Snohomish County, just in the flight path for the Boeing factory in Everett. But I’ve lived just about everywhere near Seattle other than south of it, and also in Oregon. I’m jealous of anyone who lives in Puyallup, such a short trip to the fair! And I should probably tag @Catfin since that was who posted the original question.
