    That/who, wonder/wander, addicting/addictive... I swear the schools are not well anywhere in Teen Mom Territory. (Correlation = causation?)

    I’m not even going to play like I wouldn’t eat that. Maybe I am garbage but my eating preferences can be quite affordable.

    S07.E24: Sean

    Yay, teamwork! I agree, LB’s story was tragic but Sean’s was just about as bleak as it gets. We’re due for a more lighthearted story!

    S07.E24: Sean

    Now I’m curious to see if that will be it! Sean and LB did have a slight resemblance, but I remember LB as one of the most motivated and easy to root for if anyone ever on the show. Hearing about his death actually made me really sad. EDIT: wording was not meant to imply that Sean’s death wasn’t sad!

    S08.E01: Walking on Eggshells

    She said something at the very beginning about finally feeling like she was a full-time parent, but I can’t remember whether Leah was named or just implied.

    Were you maybe thinking of James “L.B.” Bonner? He definitely played football and I think I remember him saying the thing about making his dad proud. Sadly, he has also since passed away.

    The Other Duggars: The Howlers, Lost Girls, Grandma Duggar and Amy

    I have no idea whether Mary was an introvert, but if it were me with the five-million-person family, I’d definitely need some alone time. Not that I’d wish this kind of passing on anyone, but after a morning at church and probably a huge family lunch, I need a break! Not just “Fundies.” Lots of Christians believe this because it’s mentioned several times in the New Testament.

    Amy stop writing captions while you’re drunk on salon Chardonnay. It’s not a “chair,” sweetie. It’s actually a chair. If you’re sitting in a “chair” and “getting your beauty on” in front of a mirror, we can probably infer the rest. And the ellipses are looking a little unhinged. IstilllikeyoubetterthanMattKbye

    Of course Tyler is the kind of person who says “addicting” when they mean “addictive.” That’s the exact kind of detail that explains him. rainbow baby tattoos live laugh love style starting a toddler fashion line saying “addicting” ...he is a Basic Betch!

    The Other Duggars: The Howlers, Lost Girls, Grandma Duggar and Amy

    When a notable person passes away, people are going to be curious about how. I understand that there are different opinions on what counts as "enough" information, but I've always thought that at least a brief allusion to "how" can deter worse speculation and intrusion. A well-known travel blogger died suddenly last month, and until her family confirmed that it was probably due to an asthma attack, people were guessing overdose, suicide, drunk drowning, etc. There shouldn't be shame in how anyone dies, but keeping tight-lipped about the manner while sharing news of the passing is bound to invite speculation. Survivors can choose to share how ever much or little they like, but they can't stop human nature. Death is the great unknown and many of us assuage our trepidation by ruminating on the circumstances of others'. "Found floating in the pool" is shocking and a bit more vivid than I was expecting, and probably not the Duggars' preferred phrasing, but it can also help explain the reactions they may be exhibiting. I agree with others who have said they give a wide berth to anyone for how they deal with grief. Just because many here don't like the family or hate their beliefs or lifestyle doesn't mean the Duggars are faking grief and didn't actually love Mary. They have a very different worldview from mainstream culture -- that's their whole schtick, after all -- but they are human beings and I'm almost positive they have souls. Yes, even Jim Bob! I've been pleasantly surprised to see so many comments giving them some grace on how they're reacting.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    Maybe they're staying with friends while the house is for sale, so they don't have to keep it spotless while trying to live there, and leave on short notice for showings. Maybe it's already sold and they needed a place to stay until they move. Maybe they're just hanging out at the friends' house. With a photographer mom + a firstborn, photogenic child, I don't see how the kid's life would be anything less than a constant photo shoot! 😆

    Loves cats and enchiladas and is happy to be living in Texas? Those would all be on my super-sized episode too!* I guess Janine is an all right gal! *I will never be on this show but you know what I mean.

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    I don’t get it, either! Maybe some people just don’t see it? In Jill’s case, she did grow up in a house that was far from spotless, but considering how many kids were in the TTH at the time, it never looked that bad to me. It seems like Jinger keeps a very tidy house and Jessa’s is hit-or-miss (dirty diapers piled on furniture being a low point), and you and your sister clearly have different “styles,” so I guess it’s just an individual thing. But I still cannot relate AT ALL. When people say “I don’t want my house to look like it’s in a magazine. I want it to look LIVED IN,” I’m like, why?

    JD and Abbie: Captured Before the Rapture

    I’d be really impressed if they pulled off timing their family at a pace they can afford and are comfortable with, and stop at 2 or 3 and don’t make the oldest girl(s) raise their siblings. But that’s just me. 😏

    Joy and Austin: This One Time At Family Camp

    The bump cradle is everywhere and it’s always obnoxious, IMO. I generally find it weird to caress oneself in public. I don’t follow those other people but that bride is simply stunning. What a great example of how to be effortlessly modest. You don’t have to Frankenstein six different dresses together to broadcast that no normal gown meets your impeccable standards. The silhouette is flattering without being provocative, and the design is cohesive, almost as though one person executed it and didn’t rip pieces off of other garments in her tacky boutique or something.
