    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    This was very helpful--thank you! And yes, I imagine Chuck is not thrilled, but if I were MacDonald and company, I'd be super pissed at him, especially if--as we have speculated--he was brought in as a PR move to boost the social media profile and general reputation of the organization.

    Yeah I know a lot of people, including relatives, who attend non-denominational churches, and their response is always to just note that they attend a non-denominational but Bible-believing church. They don't have to turn their non-answer into the big mystery that they have. I've met a couple of people who are very attached to their denominational allegiances who can be a bit huffy with the non-denominational answer, like it's not a real church if it's non-denominational LOL, but if that is Jeremy's concern, he's going to have to get over it. Whatever happened to being bold in Christ, JereMe?

    True. Are the Duggars Calvinists? I never met Calvinist Baptists--or Calvinists in general--until I attended a religious college that had a significant Reformed history, so it was only in recent years that I realized they existed. Honestly did not like most of the Calvinists I met, but they often struck me as more intellectual-leaning, at least the ones I met, than anyone in the Duggar circus, including Jeremy.

    I'm not sure, but he might be! I get the impression the Laredo church was non-denominational. Edit: Maybe Jeremy's a Calvinist Baptist like John MacDonald?

    I know the Duggars are Baptists (of a sort), but what is Jeremy?

    Joy and Austin: This One Time At Family Camp

    Oh yeah I think Austin's family wanted to milk that for all it was worth and probably still do. I don't get that vibe from him, though.

    LOL I sidestep this quandary by asking matter-of-factly what genre of favorite movie they want to know about. I think Mr. Smooth needs to learn some better stalling tactics and canned answers. You'd think after being a pastor for a few years that he already had a safe answer for a favorite movie question memorized. 😄

    Joy and Austin: This One Time At Family Camp

    Yes, I actually always forget about them, but I could also see that happening on its own. I also don't get a fame whore vibe from her or Joe.

    Joy and Austin: This One Time At Family Camp

    Yes, I don't get a fame whore vibe from Austin at all. I agree with the speculation previously that of all the Duggar marriages, this is the one most likely to have happened even if there'd never have been a TV show.

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    I had an issue with gagging several years ago, and mine was definitely stress-related. I could easily see this being a psychosomatic thing of his. I wonder when it started. I bet money it was right around the time the scandal broke or at another stressful period in their life. I'd be surprised if it existed before his marriage.

    Oh my God if Jeremy is going to be learning Greek for seminary, I think we all need to brace ourselves for the avalanche of pretension that will surely follow!

    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    True, but I find it really exhausting to be around crowds, even if I don't interact with them. Like, I have to take a nap after going to the store because it wears me out so bad. LOL That honestly might border on social anxiety beyond introversion--I don't know. I did go to the movies for the first time in years earlier this year and enjoyed it a bit more than I thought I would. (Movie theaters are another place that tend to freak me out--surrounded by strangers. Like a personal vision of hell.) But I went during the day on a weekday, and that helped since it wasn't packed. So, I've decided to make an effort to go to the movies when I am interested in the movie. The Lighthouse has me suitably intrigued, and I have a couple of months to psych myself up for going to see it. I might be able to work myself up to going to a non-classical concert eventually. 🙂
  13. I have family with that look, too, and it is natural. They've looked that way since childhood. For that reason, I've never really thought too much about the mismatch between his eyebrows and his hair color. I always just assumed it was natural.

    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    It's funny, actually, since I like so much rock (and, well, a lot of genres, to be honest.) But the only concerts I've ever attended are orchestral. I'm really introverted, and though my mind likes the idea of attending a concert, my mind is also freaked out by the idea of all the other people who will be there.

    The Master's Seminary: Lord of the Flies Edition. I'd watch it. 😉
