  1. No, that's a different one (that's a picky-eater cat). This is a woman asking for advice on what to feed the new puppy, while her hapless husband struggles to put together a crate. https://www.ispot.tv/ad/IpW1/chewy-com-puppy-training

    Probably... Sounds vaguely familiar now you mention it.

    S10.E02: Fit for a Queen

    Thoughts as I watched: I don't think I've ever seen anyone so excited to see Doug. I like Frank's blue. My kitchen is a similar color. Please don't talk about "sexual overtones," Frank. How many references to sending the pregnant homeowner into early labor if she doesn't like something are we going to get? (I counted 4.) People who say "OMG" out loud drive me nuts. I like Paige's shirt. If you are "scared" of paint, you are on the wrong show. "Silver leaf" to give it a "gilded pop"...um... "a pile of dead Ice Capades skaters" 😂 The red team wife is getting on my nerves. Clearly he's planning to change the chair so maybe shush and see what it looks like when it's done. Not feelin' Frank's artwork... Power tools are "man tools"? Don't tell Joanie that. You're worried because no one will tell you what's going on in your house? That's the whole point of the show. Damn, those are some giant sunglasses. How do they have time to bake a cake? I can already tell Doug's room is going to be way too ornate for my taste. Not sure about Frank's yet. Preview: "A room so shocking..." and of course it's Hildi. Yeah, Doug's room is way too much. Not crazy about Frank's room, either, but if I had to pick one of 'em...I do like the fabric headboard and the TV stand. Glad the homeowners loved them. That's what matters. Where did that chair end up, anyway?
  4. Rachel and Jun (of JunsKitchen) have an interesting video about why native Japanese speakers have trouble with L and R. (He's Japanese, she's American, and they live in Japan. And I want her hair.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4MsJHn-lRA I have mixed feelings about the chewy.com commercials. If you need advice on what to feed your puppy, ask your vet! And how exactly is he supposed to help you put together a crate over the phone? But on the other hand, puppy! 🐕
  5. I used to live (also alone) in an apartment with a dishwasher (one drawer in the entire kitchen, but I had a dishwasher 🙄). I mostly used it as a drying rack after I washed dishes by hand (little counter space; didn't need a countertop rack taking up any of it). I think I actually ran the thing once or twice in the year I lived there (and it didn't seem to work that great, anyway).

    S03.E16: Don't Take My Sunshine Away

    My mom went back to work full time (she always worked part time jobs, either day shifts when we were in school, or evening shifts after my dad was home when we were younger) when I was 11 and my brother was 13...he was usually home anyway but they decided I could handle being by myself for a few hours if necessary by that age. I guess he was technically "in charge" but he wasn't really "babysitting" because I didn't need to be watched. We mostly each just did our own thing, homework or TV or whatever. (Though there was that time he forgot his key and made me crawl through the window because I was smaller. I should'a left him outside. 😉 ) I do think whether an older sibling should babysit depends on both the kid's age/maturity level and how the younger kids are (if your kids get along and are not prone to causing trouble they're probably fine with a responsible older sibling), but ten is a little young no matter what, I think. We also had regular chores (emptying the dishwasher, feeding the dog, dusting/vacuuming, cleaning the bathroom...); who did what alternated by week. The only thing he did that I never had to do was mow the lawn. And we learned to do our own laundry as soon as we were tall enough to reach to the bottom of the washing machine (which for me was around 12...I was pretty small for my age until then). While I don't think Deja should be babysitting, given the foster situation (if one of them really needed to be watching Annie, it should be her actual sister, but then I tend to forget the character Tess is younger than the actress who plays her), all three of them can certainly do some age-appropriate household chores.

    Though, if you're trapped in traffic on a major highway, pulling over might not be possible. In the episode where he takes Deja to the building in Philly (just to monologue at her, which he could have done at home) she says they drove an hour to get there. Which, unless his car can fly, is not happening.

    I really kinda hate Grace's giant clear-plastic glasses...

    Hoarders

    Thoughts on Linda's episode... It's terrible to say, but when they said (paraphrasing), "stuff can be replaced; you can't be replaced," I thought, "would they want to replace her?" Why on earth would you wear white pants to go clean up a filthy hoarder house (Dorothy)? I also don't understand the women with long hair going into this endeavor with their hair down and loose (Kristen, Shawntae). I laughed at their half-assed coverup of the Starbucks logo on the cup Linda was holding. They couldn't afford two strips of tape? (Or did they use it all up on the grandson's sweatshirt? Why not just tell people not to wear clothes with visible logos?) With all the mention of mouse and fly waste, how did it not come up until Day 2 that they knew grandma pooped on the floor? They should have had one of those decontamination shower tents outside. I hope they all just threw out their clothes and shoes after this. I don't think Linda knows what the word "clutter" means. Did I hear correctly, there were trees growing in the wall? I've heard of mushrooms growing in leaking walls, but trees?! Is it really necessary to come back from commercial and replay part of the same scene from before the commercial?

    Everyone else is too busy playing giant Tetris and doing math?

    Don't any of these people have actual work to do?

    Hoarders

    Just started it on demand; ten minutes in. Glad I read this thread so I am prepared...I plan to watch the first hour, then Jeopardy, then another half hour, then Grey's Anatomy, then the end. I think I'll need a break or two (also I'm just watching around other stuff).

    S07.E12: Aaron's Story

    A (very quick) google suggests that there are grocery delivery and curbside pickup options in the New Braunfels area (HEB and Walmart, for two). If there is another sister, which is the one who told him he'd never have a girlfriend?

    S07.E12: Aaron's Story

    I can't imagine they don't get a lot more detailed instructions than the show puts on the air. But there's always going to be someone who thinks they can decide "alternatives" on their own, or simply don't fully understand for whatever reason.

    Definitely not a Schenee! Not quite a Justin, bit of a slow start, but he picks up steam later on.
