    Joy and Austin: This One Time At Family Camp

    Same here. I thought it was someone else and had to look twice to recognize Joy.

    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    I've had really good luck with ThirdLove. I used their online fit finder and trusted it when it took me from a 38DDD to a 36F. These are the most comfortable and best-fitting bras I've ever worn. And the straps stay up! I'm converted and I never had to step into a store.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    Because admitting on camera that they belong to a patriarchal cult is a bad look? Just another facet of their hypocrisy. If you're so proud of your super specialness and so much better than the rest of the heathens, why not own it?

    Joy and Austin: This One Time At Family Camp

    I was thinking about the Duggar women and their husbands as I was working on dinner just now (I know, I know, a life is needed). I think in many ways Joy has a better shot at building a good relationship, even though she got married so young. Ben, Dreck, and JereME all seem to really want to be someone other than who they are. They also each seem to have chosen a Duggar for a wife for a purpose (idolizing the image on TV, prayer partner and wanting to ride coattails, latching onto "fame," respectively) other than just wanting to spend their lives together. They aspire to a particular image other than being the people they are. Austin, from what we've seen, is the most authentic in being who he is and seems content to be exactly that. Not someone I would want, sure, but for Joy, he seems a good match. It seems to me much easier to build a good relationship with someone who knows who they are and chooses you for who you are rather than to build a relationship with someone who wants to be someone else and to use you as a means to get there.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    Good grief. He is this cemented in his misogynist beliefs at the ripe old age of 23? Perhaps there is a hope that he will encounter some real world experiences to shake him out of this but it doesn't seem likely yet. I cannot imagine wanting to be with someone whose baseline was thinking I was inferior due to my biological sex. I know that's a core tenet of the Duggars, too, but they seem a bit better about sugar-coating it than Clueless Cade.

    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    Happy birthday, @Happyfatchick! We've all missed you around here. My husband and I will be seeing the Rolling Stones tomorrow night for the second time. This time, it's in an outdoor stadium. Last time was an indoor arena. We shall see how it differs. My brush with musical fame (other than being a street musician in NYC a long time ago and once having a track on an album) is having been kissed by Graham Nash at a concert in the late 90s (platonically, not passionately).
  7. So is MEchelle going to have to protest against this "cigar lounge" like she did the 7-11 or whatever it was that wanted to sell booze?

    Me, too! She looked great in that scene and I loved the shirt.

    Masterchef (US)

    I preferred Jamie and Subha’s presentations to the three who were up there. I, too, wonder what Gordon is using to blackmail Grant Achatz. ETA I wish I could like your post more than once, @mlp. Could not agree more.

    House Hunters International

    That was a Duggar-esque amount of hair and I thought that mane kind of aged her but I ended up liking her more than I expected to. Did they say what sort of business they were starting? I missed it.

    Four Weddings

    I saw the one with Alana today, too. She was pretty bitchy, I thought, and very very picky. I was glad she came in last.

    I want to punch them both. I'll see you in the prayer closet.
