    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    Uncle Jim is no fool, and knows where his money shot photo-op bread is buttered - in with the laughing baby!

    S09.E02 Jinger Has a Baby

    Fun OT and probably apocryphal story... but I like it anyway: Once upon a time in his younger years, there was a guy who wanted to be CP's agent. So every night they would go out together drinking and chasing women. CP's capacity for both was such that the would-be agent found himself close to physical collapse. Finally he got comfortable enough to suggest that he represent CP. But the actor turned him down flat. Later he heard the reason from one of CP's friends. CP had said that while the guy was terrific company there was no way he would hire him as an agent. All he ever did was drink and f***.

    On the plus side, Ben strikes me as book-smarter than most Duggars (maybe all; I haven't spent a lot of time ranking them); so this is a step up for the lost girls and howlers, IMO.

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    Do you think Jill realizes it would actually be pretty easy to slot a picture of Cathy into the page and capture it ‘Mima’, and then people would know she’s not talking about her own mother and thus could stop differentiation? Also, Sammy is pretty cute shopping for mangoes (?). It looks like he got a good one!
  5. I feel pretty sure that's how it works; or casting.

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

    They have been for a while IMO, as I remember a discussion about my BIL's Amish-quality beard 2 Christmases ago; and also remember him echoing my best male friend's rationales on the topic as well... hides his/a double chin; "not everyone can grow this kind of hair, or any beard at all really!", so the fact that my sister hated it made no difference to him, because other men were always coming up to him and exclaiming admiringly of it. "I wish I could grow a beard like that!"

    Josiah and Lauren: He Has To Marry Somebody

    It's possible that Lauren doesn't yet know what is wrong with her, just that she has "a tender stomach" in some way, shape, or form. I myself often had intestinal problems for decades, and asked to be tested multiple times for Crohn's, celiac, endometriosis, etc., after wolfing probiotics and cal-mag until the cows came home... or went away, as I also briefly flirted with the possibility that I was lactose intolerant... after enormous amounts of trial and error, it seems that I was having consistent intestinal problems because of my gastritis; or, at the very least, that my bowels regulate themselves with a daily acid reducer de facto pushing the acid buildup out (sorry for TMI but if it helps one other person, I would feel it's worth it!).

    Agreed, her hair/face would benefit from lots of layers, at minimum.
  9. My grandfather always sent me a valentine card with $5 in it, lol. Now that he’s gone I miss it.

    Gimme That Old Time Religion

    Well, I think like one of the subjects of the original linked article said, there was something to be said for women getting his opinion on "what a cute single Christian guy might find attractive", because that's not without merit; but if he or his publisher lacked the wisdom/responsibility to say "This is what *I* want, give it a try and see if you like it, I'm not saying that there is only one way to live your life...", that's a different matter I think. Then again, you had the unknown lesbian driving herself crazy trying not to "tempt men" with her frontal hugs... I think she of all the young women had the best chance to say "Hey, your problem, dude, I understand biology but I'm not trying to attract" to herself, had she but known.

    Gimme That Old Time Religion

    Wow, that's kind of insulting - I mean, better late than never, but I know people who absolutely believed this; and his self-rebuttal credits himself with having come up with the concept of "giving away pieces of your heart", so the Duggars should be up in arms too, IMO. I also probably wouldn't be quite so incensed if he hadn't been so autocratic about it. For all he knows, plenty of impressionable teens he led astray would have been happy sticking at first base until they felt old enough to handle sex. "Well, gee whiz, now I feel bad. Now I've had time to reflect and realize that the Bible doesn't actually SAY a quarter of what I kept saying it did!"

    JD and Abbie: Captured Before the Rapture

    I’m primarily just comforted that the twins were allowed to spend time together!
  13. Also, trying to picture what it matters that the friend they brought to the supermarket was a nurse... is she sure she didn’t mean ‘nice’? ‘oh, now that a nurse has asked us to throw some eggs...’? It’s like a Jilly Muffin story.
  14. Maybe her hair is stubborn and won't hold a curl.

    Michelle and JimBob aka J'Chelle and Boob

    She just means being an ebil unchurched sinner, in the way Jinger was overburdened with the knowledge of her own "sin nature" once she turned the ripe old age of four. Your points are good though.
