    S07.E08: Maja's Story

    I just thought of something else. In the beginning, when she was explaining that she needed Chrishun to put on her socks - he did so, but then she immediately wrestled herself into her jeans. So was the sock thing bogus? They do have assistive devices for pulling in socks and shoes - my mom has one after surgery when her mobility was restricted. I guess Maja has tight compression socks but I think a “grabber” might still have helped her. I dunno.

    After the 9-lb loss/chrishshun is a bastard meltdown, she angrily said, “Now I have to do this for another month!” No, lady, you have to do it F-O-R-E-V-E-R. Another idiot who thinks if she can just make it to WLS, Dr Now will wave a magic wand and she’ll wake up skinny and never have to watch what she eats.

    I had to laugh at this because I have to force myself not to eat a whole Costco-sized wedge of Cambozola when the opportunity comes up. Your description would totally be me if I ever stopped resisting.

    I think he wanted to be sure she actually moved to Houston because it was the only sure way to get her out of his apartment. I’m sure he also hoped she’d succeed but he also knows her well enough to realize that was unlikely. Still, why rock the boat prematurely? He probably raced home, gave notice to his landlord, and adopted a new identity.

    I’m thinking that when someone is SO invested in blaming others, a therapist probably has to guide them gently to the realization that they need to own their situation. Otherwise the person just digs in harder. Mana seemed to have no interest in viewing her life in any way other than as a victim. It would take lots of therapy to crack through that, if it’s even possible.

    S10:04 Kody's Shocking Move

    Honestly I thought Meri rolled her eyes a little when she quoted that. I forget who she was quoting but she did not seem to be the one who came up with the concept

    S10:04 Kody's Shocking Move

    I’m still watching this. Do they really not know that you can live in a HOUSE in Seattle? I grew up here. Call me, Christine. I have tons of other mind-blowing info. Kody dares to suggest he will judge whether the hats look good? The arbiter of taste.

    S10:04 Kody's Shocking Move

    Aside from all the other nonsense in this episode - why would you get a hat designed before you know what you’re going to be wearing?

    I just watched the Bundy episode. Who in the world thought it was a good idea to keep playing snatches of “(Don’t Fear) the Reaper”? There’s no way to avoid thinking “more cowbell” each and every time.

    I used to work for Wells Fargo and a guy I knew there got canned because he posted pics that were taken at a sanctioned work function - but he was acting in a way WF deemed inappropriate, despite being in a company sanctioned party type of atmosphere. I seem to recall that Tony also works for WF and of Mykelti does, too, she’d better cool it.
  11. I was 21 and living in Seattle in 1974, and like many, many girls at that time, I had long brown hair parted in the middle. Like everyone, I was hyper aware of “Ted” and have watched and read everything I could find about him over the years. (Shortly after Lake Sammamish I had an encounter with someone who my mother always believed was “Ted” [long story] and I admit the possibility. I imagine a lot of us had close calls one way or another. He seems to have been constantly on the prowl.) I enjoyed the documentary and found that the ‘70s footage and styling really brought back the feel of that time. It made it all very real for me. I learned a couple of things. I knew he had been a “rising star” in the state GOP but was amazed at the news clippings etc in which he was identified. I hadn’t fully realized he had been that well-known and visible. I do seem to recall reading that he was driving the first car over the North Cascades Highway when it opened. I suppose he was driving Governor Evans. I have long wondered one very trivial thing: where the hell did he get that folksy half-drawl, when he grew up in Tacoma? He was so affected and smug. Total asshole even without the evil component. Also, I never thought he was good looking. I don’t get that fuss at all.

    Cold Justice

    I like this show a lot; I really enjoy seeing the process of analyzing a crime. I do wish we had more of a chance to read the notations on the whiteboard when they’re brainstorming. Occasionally there’s a glimpse of something intriguing that they never discuss on camera. I’d even be happy if they made each episode two hours long if that included more time and to read those boards and allow us to think and speculate and analyze along with LE and Kelly.

    S06.E07: Big Girls Don't Cry

    Buddy is such an Eeyore. But I don’t think Chelsea seems into him at all so maybe she really does have one foot out the door. I’m only partway into this but damn. They are already fighting?? And because he’s a “possessive lunatic”? Listen to Tal, dumbass. Buddy doesn’t want to fly without “support”? Is that so be won’t drink? Wouldn’t Tal be actual, professional support? Whit is right - Chelsea (who could probably be anyone) is his new drug. And how much pressure for her to feel like her new guy’s sobriety depends on her. Talk about manipulation. It’s too bad that destitute Buddy can’t get refunds on all those huge ugly tats.

    S06.E06: Fat Hating is Real

    I’m finally watching this ep. Buddy and Chelsea have just moved into a tin can on the street, as so many other homeless have done. Lemme guess: Buddy goes back to bartending because the money is so much better. And whatever will happen next? Stay tuned! ETA: Buddy, you dumbass. This is why they recommend you stay away from new relationships during your first year of sobriety. You don’t need any new pressure or DISTRACTIONS from the work you should be doing on yourself.

    S10:03 Kody Wants Out

    I agree about understanding Meri’s reasons. I don’t even think she set out to cheat, either. I think she felt an emotional connection that snowballed, then of course it was all fake. But anyway. I think their “lifestyle” has failed her for a long time and may go a long way to explain why she can seem unpleasant and victim-y. Unlike many, I don’t dislike her, I feel sorry for her and hope she can find a happier life soon. In their culture, the first wife is supposed to be HBIC, but it sure didn’t work out that way for her. And it surely broke her heart to be asked to divorce him in favor of the new, young, attractive (yup, another Unpopulsr Opinion), and obviously FERTILE wife. If the divorce really was so Bunboy could adopt Robin’s other kids, once that was accomplished he could have divorced Robin and remarried Meri. But I guess they are all supposed to believe that “spiritual” marriage = legal marriage. Except it doesn’t, in various ways to various people. Kody’s infatuation with Robin seemed to break Christine’s heart, too, but we did see Kody and her taking some steps to try to shore up their marriage. We haven’t seen him do squat to do the same for Meri, and he’s even said a couple of things lately that seem to acknowledge that. So she fell apart and screwed up, and he’ll never stop punishing her for it. Yay, polygamy!! It makes each of us better!
