    S06.E07: Big Girls Don't Cry

    That's what I get for half-watching. I saw a handful of other kids but the camera was so focused on the pathetic adults that I assumed those kids were there for some other party, not Harper's. Can you blame me for not giving this show my full attention? LOL

    Yeeeeup. I'm sure she goes on dates, takes baby to the park, runs errands, goes to work, and has a social life, albeit limited by new parenthood. Why waste all that on Whitney? Nesting is normal for new moms. Hell, there are even times when I, a non-mother extrovert wants to stay home and veg out. I can imagine her urge to spend time with her immediate family is pretty strong, especially with an adorable, pleasant baby like Harper. Doubly so when the alternative is spending time with Whitney. Unfortunately this is going to backfire hard on her, because it'll just make Whitney double down on her superhero rescuer efforts to drag her out of the house to more cat cafes and cupcake tastings.

    S09.E05: Shutting Down

    I think that was a different flood--2016. I remember distinctly answering the phone on a break from class while my mom described the destruction. This particular flood was due to some pipe bursting, not a natural disaster, and was exclusive to her home. It took nearly a year of displacement and rebuilding, and yes, there was a HUGE shortage of contractors, but my mom and grandma made it back to their home.

    Thank you for this! It explained what I suspected. I was looking at the weight ratings and thinking "that can't be right, there must be more physics involved." You nailed what I was thinking exactly. The episode finally aired here, and I find it hilarious that everyone's mad at Todd (who was out of line but hilarious as always) for making a child's birthday party all about him, but let's be realistic here. That was not a child's birthday party. That was four childish adults sitting around eating cupcakes with one single toddler. Who has a kid's first birthday party and doesn't invite any other kids?

    I haven't seen the episode yet, but this is typical for climbers with different weights. I used to belay 200+ and was concerned until I learned leverage and anchoring. Now, I'm a novice climber at best, but I struggle to believe that harness is rated to 400 pounds. There's a reason climbers are lean in general, and it's not just because it's good exercise. Naturally this is all for show; I don't think any climbing gym would allow themselves this kind of liability.

    Me too, simply because I remember that episode back in season 1, when Whitney was still somewhat likeable. She supposedly hadn't been to the beach in 20 years or so, and was thrilled to find a bathing suit and enjoy frolicking on the beach with her friend, and seemed to be genuinely having fun. Those were the days. I can hardly remember a time when Whitney was actually fun to watch.

    S06.E06: Fat Hating is Real

    I'm with you. It seems anytime someone commits the heinous crime of not 100% gender conforming, or spends too much time single, everyone wants to be the first to out them. Maybe Hunter is gay, maybe he's not, who cares? He's not out and it's not our business unless he makes it our business. The guy probably has homophobic parents (although Babs has said it's okay if Whitney is not straight, but who knows if she meant it), let's not make life any harder than it has to be for him.
  8. That's regional--I grew up in WV and it took YEARS to train myself out of calling them ree-see-cups. I didn't watch the videos all the way through but from the few seconds I did watch, these people seem so sad. No wonder they look at Whitney like a rock star. But what really struck me is, was that 11 minutes of just yammering in your car about what you eat in a day? I can't think of anything more boring! No one cares what you eat! I don't even care what Jillian Michaels or Shaun T or Richard Simmons eats! And I LOVE Richard Simmons! I can't imagine subscribing to a channel of someone who's so boring all they do is aim a phone at herself and have a pity party about how fat they are and how much drive-through garbage they eat. I love my own diet, fresh veggies and mostly whole foods, and even I would fall asleep if I tried to film myself talking about what I eat in a day.

    I think it's actively harmful. We spend so much time assuring each other that we're perfect and goddesses and never need to change...but why? What's so bad about a little self-improvement? Yeah, we don't need to beat ourselves up for not being perfect all the time, but if we peak at 35 and 400 pounds, why go on? If you're already perfect and have nothing to work for, what's the point? I personally hope to improve on myself as long as I live. When I think back on my "glory days" I hope I'm thinking back into my 70s, not my 20s. I have way too much life left for it to all be downhill. Whitney and her ilk even more so.

    It's "basic B" type stuff--word art, obsessing over unicorns, and silly slogans like "YES WAY ROSE'" (sorry, I'm too lazy and don't care enough to add the accent to the E). You see stuff like that in the dollar section of Target all the time. I have no idea who buys into that sort of thing, I'm guessing bored housewives and college kids with no actual art or creativity? I get it, I bought Ikea in my younger days...but then I hit my mid-30s, got a real job, and decided to invest in some real art rather than boring, run of the mill stuff you can find at Target or Marshall's. No disrespect to my discount sisters...local artists will let their incredible work go for the same price as that "LIVE LAUGH LOVE" wall hanging you found at Bed Bath & Beyond for $60 that will fall apart after a year.

    Whitney's eye-rolling at the "Aww! Babe! AWWW! BABE!" was the only time I ever related to or empathized with her.

    I think Ashley is quite stunning (and also the voice of reason, often) and I hope she gets back to a healthy weight and finds a new group besides this one. She is truly likeable, as is Tal, and Todd is hilarious. I just think she's beautiful especially compared to this ragtag band of losers.
  14. I donno, sex sells...but you have to be sexy...sorry, Twit, failed again.

    She (or someone from her camp) has definitely been reading these boards. Did you notice she went with "envious" instead of "jealous" after our looong discussion in these threads about the difference?
