    S07.E08: Maja's Story

    Seriously. That woman was scary in some of those scenes.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    I have to say this. I'm not a Brit, but I am an Anglophile. I travel to the UK as often as my modest means allow (every other year on average). I feel at home in London. Go figure. Also, I hang out online on UK travel forums (fora?). Through all of this I have learned that to Brits, "pants" is their term for what we call underpants or panties. (What Americans call "pants" as in external wear, they call "trousers.") Thus, the bolded statement, while my all-American mind instantly understands it, also cracks me up because I see how it would read in the UK or to someone very familiar with that usage. ETA: I've also often thought that the statement "Duggars don't allow their daughters to wear pants" must sound a little kinky to some people, lol.

    S07.E08: Maja's Story

    Wow, Maja was a real piece of work. Whiny baby doesn't even begin to cover it. She's bright enough to understand, on some level, that she's "eating her feelings" but not willing to grow up and deal with those feelings any other way. That screaming meltdown with Christian in the doctor's office ("IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT that I won't get approved for surgery!!") showed her true colors. And I'm sure it's already a classic clip destined to live forever on the innernets. Ring tone, anyone? That said, I wasn't a big fan of Christian either. He was passive-aggressive and certainly came across as sullen in the edits. OTOH, if he's the one who got her in touch with Dr. Now, I give him some credit for that. Maybe he wanted to leave Maja, but thought that first getting her to Dr. Now would at least give her a chance to turn her life around. ETA: I came in a little late. Does anyone know why Maja's mom was working two jobs? Was mom helping support Maja? I thought Mom was irritating AF in the "goodbye" scene but so was Maja. Mom had a few good points: she had to get to her job, and she'd rather say goodbye quickly and not break down. Maja was just "I can't deal with this, I'm busy packing." Busy, my *ss. What a beast.

    House Flipping Shows

    Oh gosh. I watched that show a long time ago, maybe on a cable channel, or ??? I'll have to look for it on Prime. I enjoyed it for several reasons, not the least of which was getting a glimpse into the type of housing available in the UK and what buyers might expect (vs. good old US house hunters with the granite countertop/stainless appliance/4 bedrooms/office/4 bathrooms yada yada.) EAT: I went to Amazon and I'm disappointed. They show four seasons, only two of which are currently available (I'm in the US, maybe it's different elsewhere). And to get the two available seasons, you have to sign up for an additional (paid) Prime video service, apparently focused on DIY/real estate programming. No thanks.

    The Lonely Js Club: Jana, Jedidiah, Jeremiah and Jason

    Well that's a good development. An obstacle to the media normalization of the Duggars.

    Family By The Ton

    I just have to chime in with this. I was tired and didn't watch the whole episode last night, but I watched a lot of the last season and last week's recap episode. They are warm and caring people, I really enjoy seeing them, and I'm also rooting for them to succeed.

    Dr. Now is not buying the crying thing here. He's on to her game.

    I thought someone was going to put that annoying kid in the dishwasher so she can find out "What does the dishwasher DO?"

    I agree - he's a jerk. But she's having an epic meltdown and every word out of her mouth is blaming HIM for her problems. Gah.

    Oh, it's ALL HIS FAULT. He's ruining everything! He's costing her the weight loss surgery! Wow. Epic meltdown.

    Oh, I didn't realize that. I'm cutting mom some slack in that case.

    Oh, the "I couldn't eat right while traveling and ate a lot of fast food on the way to Houston" spot on the bingo card.

    Okay, both Maja and Mom are annoying AF. IMO it's a tie. Not even much fun in that dysfunctional family dynamic.
