    Good Bones

    I believe there was a short hallway in the back with the bedroom on one side and the bathroom across from it. We don't usually see much of the neighborhood around the flipped property, but the nearby houses on the recent episode looked fairly nice and well kept. There seemed to be a park or open space across the street. I always wonder if "up and coming" just means "primarily minorities."

    Good Bones

    I started choke-laughing when Karen got stuck in the heater vent. Girl's got some serious back tattoos! Karen and Mina: "We'll refinish the floors; that's within our expertise level and it'll save some money." Flash to someone else refinishing the floors. Best intentions go astray, ladies!
  3. I did the same with Hostess chocolate cupcakes earlier this year -- seduced by an endcap display! They're smaller now but taste the same: stiff, chalky icing, air-filled chocolate cake, and most of the sweetness and flavor from the filling.
  4. This is an extremely individual choice for us as humans, but to me, the treatment is sometimes worse than the disease. From the gofundme page: "Valerie is currently taking a multitude of medications and chemotherapy drugs as well as going through extreme physical and painful challenges now with around the clock, 24/7 care." I've always been fond of her as a character, and she seems like a wonderful person. I wish her a peaceful leavetaking.

    S12. E06. Art of War

    That was a very worthy elimination, although I could easily have picked a couple more to be in the bottom. Not a good outing for most of them. Dani's excellent work loses out again. At this point I'm kind of watching just to see what Nunez will wear next.

    I bought a half slip last year for the first time in decades and for the same reason; to wear under knit dresses. The fabric isn't sheer per se, but you can see the outline of my legs if the sun is behind me. (The paps don't follow me like they did Princess Diana, but I'd prefer to avoid that particular faux pas.) I also bought a pair of pettipants for the same reason but mostly just pull on the slip.

    The Incredible Dr. Pol

    It's a dilemma for a pet owner who can't afford specialized hospitals or even standard vet fees: Do you trust someone like Dr. Jeff who has several times done a surgery he admits is a first for him, or go to a vet like Pol who doesn't have the expertise (and perhaps equipment) to do orthopedic surgery and jumps to the most radical solution? (I would also guess in this case that the amputation was no charge or deeply discounted since its owner worked at PVC.) Also? Put a danged collar on the cat so she doesn't tear off her splint! I'm glad to hear the vets specifically mention pain relief more since that's one of the things they've been criticized for. I wondered if Dr. Emily had given that poor goat a sedative or anesthetic before rooting around in his urethra. I've never been around farm animals or horses and am always amazed when I see a large animal just stand there and let people poke around an inflamed penis or open wound. (And yet they almost always shy away or vocalize when getting a shot.)

    Family: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    Hasan Minhaj has a segment on his show Patriot Act where he takes audience questions; it's available on You Tube. He mentioned that he and his wife were walking outside holding hands when they saw an older Indian couple approaching and immediately stepped apart. Maybe they know his parents or go to his mosque! Maybe they'll shout at him! He's in his 30s and married with a child but the cultural indoctrination cuts deep. It was interesting to me as someone who's never experienced any of that; whatever Italian or Catholic social mores my grandparents may have believed in had been watered down to nothing by the time I grew up. Perhaps it's more impactful for first-generation Americans whose parents are still living the immigrant experience.

    Pet Peeves

    I swear, my sister never listens to a word I say. I tell her the same thing multiple times and it's all new to her. Today she brought me a meal from a restaurant we regularly go to and included a baked sweet potato. I appreciate her thinking of me, of course. But we've been to that restaurant probably 25 times and I've never ordered sweet potato. I also eat at her house every holiday and she always makes sweet potatoes. I never eat them and have told her I don't like them. Numerous times. She's not getting senile or anything, but does believe her opinions and world view are the only ones that matter and I think just mentally brushes everything else off as unimportant. She does the same to her husband. Yeah. Our first ever sweet potato peeve.

    Dr. Jeff, Rocky Mountain Vet

    I was going to look this up but thought, eh @Bastet will know -- are ringworm meds the same for animals and humans? I was thinking Dr. Amy should just toss the owner a few samples!
  11. Any headline that starts with "Fox News" never ends well. Fox News contributor Tyrus sent lewd texts to his female co-host. After an internal investigation, Fox pulled him off the show he co-hosted on Fox Nation and gave him his own show. Texts included: “Just pull your boobs out now why don’t you. Just grin and bare it" "keep being negative and I’ll send you another dick pic." “I love the fact your always working if we ever had sex I feel like after an orgazzum you say speaking of feeling good did see the story on the puppy rescue we should do a segment on it hand me my phone.”

    Dr. Pimple Popper

    Don't you mean her Seattle-Tacomas? :-) Dr. Lee has a petite frame but looked like a linebacker next to that patient. Bag of bones, she was. I could barely see the eruptive vellus hair cysts on her skin, but Dr. Lee was sure excited to smash 'em under a slide! Edit: It's nice to see follow-up on procedures with sub-optimal outcomes because that's realistic, but does it have to be the Chip guy? Ugh. I'll be leaning on the FF button and muting it with closed-captions on.

    Dr. Pimple Popper

    Did the keloid patient go to a doctor at a mall kiosk, too? I'm pretty dubious that licensed physicians (1) don't know what a keloid is and (2) tell a patient nothing can be done without having a diagnosis. Afraid to see a doctor or can't afford it, fine, but I'm skeptical of all the tales of doctors who shrug and refuse to help patients with various cysts and bumps. If they're truly stumped or don't want to deal, it's absolutely no skin off their noses to foist the patients off onto a dermatologist!

    The Aquarium

    I just love seeing all the training, care, and play that goes on behind the scenes on these shows! Getting the manta ray weighed took hours and hours of training and at least 10 people on the day. It's crazy!

    S.09 E.05: Paradise Lost?

    It seemed to me like the "romantic" outdoor dinners with Deonna/Greg and Amber/Matt were after their first full honeymoon day, same as the other two couples. They were discussing basic get-to-know-you things. I also wouldn't be surprised if Matt's bombshell about possibly leaving the country is what caused Amber to look so deflated the rest of the week.
