    House Hunters

    I loved the second Seattle house. Under budget, all the space they could desire, a lot of old school charm and quirk - what's not to like? I did like the first house, the one they chose, but (assuming it was all legit, which I know it isn't), I would have chosen the second one - just as nice in its own way, no immediate renovation necessities and under budget as well

    Thank you for going through the trouble of sharing all that with us! Very interesting reading

    Yes to ALL of this. I remarked to my mother that if you were part of the party crew, nothing could be better or more fun, but if you weren't part of the crew, they were just loud and annoying and not nearly as funny or as cute as they thought they were. Rather immature, as mentioned above. The agent obviously didn't care for them at all. At least the one female friend did tell them not to choose a house based on them as a priority. For the record, I thought the first house was fine; I couldn't find much to complain about. Accept the murals as local charm and/or quirk, or paint over them. I thought the rest was great. (And yes, I know it was all a done deal before filming, but it's more fun to pretend everything is an option 😏 )

    ^^ Yes, they were delightful, one of the nicer families I think we've seen. Loving and supportive and SANE, lol. I'm so happy the "got" the best house for them at a reasonable price and wish them the very best @Mannahatta please don't stop posting 🙂

    I can't be the only one who read "DoughP" as Dopey, can I? Every. single. time.

    House Hunters: Buying in the USA

    It was kind of refreshing, though. We've seen more than one wife demand a chef's kitchen even as they brag about not knowing how to cook. At least this one was honest, lol. My mother and I liked the second house best and were surprised they took the first, smallest one without a garage, even if it was the closest to the beach. There's not much difference between 5 and 8 miles, really, you're not walking either way.

    And yet she couldn't be bothered to drag a brush through that hair of hers. Not to be petty, but I mentioned to my mother (we always watch HH together in the mornings) that she must spend a lot of time in front of the mirror to put on all that make-up but apparently never saw her hair; it was simply awful. But as you say, it matched her personality. We were all for the third, two bedroom apartment; we thought it was the perfect compromise AND it was waaaaay under budget. But no, Miss Thing had to have her three bedrooms. For alllll the friends and family who are coming to visit. She's so agreeable that people cant stand to be away from her for any lengthy period of time. (As I've said before, for most people, including myself, you move across country, even to another state, you're unlikely to see you old local friends again and maybe get to see your family once a year, much less if you move to another country altogether.) I don't know when I've been more annoyed by a house-huntee, and there have been some doozies. Sheesh. Agreed with your entire post, btw, but this I had to rant about a little bit, lol

    S06.E01: Single, Fat and Crazy

    I wouldn't be surprised if much of what happens on this show is staged, but Glenn's appointment and test for the hearing aid went very much like my mother's (who FINALLY got hearing aids after needing them for years, it's much more pleasant around the house now, lol). I read the words for both my mother and aunt (whose hearing was even worse) and helped score them, along with the doctor, so it's not unheard of.

    Riga to Vienna - yes, that real estate agent was quite the looker. Let's put him in that show with Richard, Adrienne and company! And the husband was a real cutie too, it looked like he was a lot of fun, which the wife seemed somewhat lacking in. They seemed like a nice couple though; I guess they balance each other out. I liked the third apartment too, I agree the exercise would have been good for them and they're young enough that they'd get used to the climb eventually. I did like the one they got, though I would have preferred to be closer to the city. The second one was nice but over budget. I like some color too but you can always add your own so I'm glad they didn't take that one.

    Pet Peeves: The Holy Trinity and Beyond

    Copied from my post in HHI - I just had to vent some more; I've reached my tipping point here, I think: And I am so beyond tired of "friends and family, friends and family" and needing an extra bedroom- I am at least aware enough that if I moved overseas, or even to the other side of the country (or even a couple of states away), I'm not seeing my ex-local friends again, unless I travel back myself. And maybe I'd see my family once a year, if I was lucky. Do these people think they're so exceptional and irreplaceable that everyone they know will want to spend all their vacation time and money going to see them? ... Sheesh. Get over yourselves, people. You're simply just not. that. special. Sorry.

    Portland to Oxfordshire. You guys said it all already. The wife was driving me nuts, smiling SO BIG all the time; it was creepy, it got so I had to avert my eyes during her talking heads. The husband said he could tell by her expression when she really liked something - how could that be? Her expression never changed. Ever. And why home school? Isn't that part of the local experience? And how are the kids supposed to make friends? And I am so beyond tired of "friends and family, friends and family" and needing an extra bedroom- I am at least aware enough that if I moved overseas, or even to the other side of the country (or even a couple of states away), I'm not seeing my ex-local friends again, unless I travel back myself. And maybe I'd see my family once a year, if I was lucky. Do these people think they're so exceptional and irreplaceable that everyone they know will want to spend all their vacation time and money going to see them? At least the wife admitted that no one had come to visit yet, but remained (characteristically) optimistic. Yay for Richard Blanco! Always a pleasure. I know I just repeated everything y'all already said, but I had to vent. Phew! I feel a little better now :-)
  12. Aw, thank you :-) I kinda like it myself. I do have one 23 year old son, and gained about 20 pounds total with my pregnancy, all in the stomach area so maybe I'm outta luck. Or maybe not - I think there is a fair amount fat in there; it sticks out and seems pretty firm. I think it's probably loss of muscle tone - sit ups, maybe? I'm of an age where I don't want to get too scrawny but maybe I should try to keep on with the weight loss as my natural weight before I had my kid was about 110 lbs. Don't hate me, but I had a MONSTER metabolism back in the day; I could eat anything and everything I wanted - and trust me, I ate truly ungodly amounts of food; looking back, I can't believe how much I could put away - and gained no weight as I needed every single calorie of it then. It was fun while it lasted but it went away after I had a baby and I put on a lot of weight before I realized what was happening. Walking 5-10 miles a day has brought the weight under control but I'm still pretty flabby in a lot of areas. Comes with age, I suppose. I have heard of CoolSculpting, it's nice to have a non-biased endorsement, so that's good to know. I do appreciate all of y'all's input!
  13. I wonder if anyone could suggest a not-too-strenuous way to firm up a saggy tummy? I am 55 years old, walked my way down from about 150 lbs to 122 (assuming the vet's scale is accurate, l weighed myself when we were there the other day, lol) and at 5'5", I don't necessarily want to lose any more weight. I feel good, I feel light, but this damn tummy just won't get out of my way and I'm tired of it. Anybody?

    I don't have stainless steel and I don't have subway tile, but I always have bell peppers on hand. They are a staple for me, you can find me cutting up lovely, colorful bell peppers on my ratty old wooden kitchen table several times a week, though no one would want to film that, lol

    S07.15 Chelsea & Charles

    I've deleted the episode, but they were together at the check-in. As I remember, they actually went out a few times - they showed some footage of a very awkward "date" - but Domo (I think it was her?) wasn't feeling it the way she thought she would, so they are working on reestablishing their friendship. Someone else may remember more clearly
