    The Media Thread Emanation

    That sucks so hard, I feel really bad for him. Losing everything in a fire is unimaginable.

    SURly Staff In The Media

    I guess I'm in the minority here, but I've been watching What Happens at The Abbey....I actually really like it. The drama is so way over the top that it's entertaining.

    S04.E12: A Tribe Called Key West

    I quit smoking almost 2 years ago and have switched to vaping. It's a lot less stinky and gross, and cheaper overall than continuously buying packs of cigarettes. Anyway my boyfriend still smokes (like a fucking chimney) and it grosses me out to smell it on him and when we kiss. The thing that bugs me most is that he has vapes. Like 3 of em. And he buys e-liquid....yet he won't quit the cigs. And if I even approach the subject with him he immediately gets defensive.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    I've always been underweight too, I can't even count how many times people have asked me if I was anorexic. Doctors, therapists, friends, strangers, teachers...it's really frustrating. And most of them didn't believe me anyway. Not only are both my parents thin, I also have extensive issues with my throat/stomach/digestive tract. At this point I am on TPN because I can barely eat anymore. It sucks. A lot. But honestly sometimes I wish it were just anorexia because you can recover from that and be (relatively) healthy. None of my health issues are going to magically go away with some therapy. Everything is chronic and will probably eventually be terminal. :(

    S05.E01: Joy's Wedding/S05.E02: Triple Date Night

    I wonder if the Duggars even teach their kids to write in cursive. Somehow I bet they don't.

    S02.E07: Mo' Onions, Mo' Problems

    I want to like shrimp and grits but I really can't stand the texture and (lack of) taste of grits. My boyfriend is a chef, so he makes really good food, but that's one dish that I just don't really care for. The shrimp though, I could eat that all day.

    Processional song name?

    There's also the app called Shazam.
  9. I had nerdy friends like that, it seems like almost all of them had some sort of crush on me at one point or another. At one point I moved in with my best (nerdy guy) friend and after a few months he kicked me out because I had a few dates while I was living there and after 11 years of being BFFs he couldn't handle the fact that I didn't share his feelings. He originally said it was because the rent was going up and he didn't think I could afford it...but a few days later he wrote me this crazy 7 page letter detailing how awful of a person I was because I had "friend zoned" him, taken advantage of his generosity (cos he let me watch whatever I wanted on tv!!), that I am a maneater, and that I led him on...which never happened. I always treated him the same way I treat all of my friends. It was ridiculous, and basically the whole time we were friends he had various relationships with other girls, and I had my own relationships too. I knew he always had some kinda feelings for me but I had no idea that it would eventually tear our friendship apart. It's been 7 years now and I haven't heard from him once. A few years ago I even called and left him a message saying I hoped he was doing well and it might be nice to grab a drink and talk, and maybe fix our friendship. He never responded. Oh well, his loss.

    S10.E24: The Long Distance Dissonance

    I love Garfunkel and Oates. Their music is awesome, and funny. Fun fact, Garfunkel and Oates wrote the "Ode to Bernadette" that Howard sang while Bernie was quarantined after being exposed to a raccoon virus in season 7...or was it 6? Anyway..

    Patricia Atschul: Her Martini Has Its Own Butler

    That dog print caftan Patricia was wearing was soooooo fugly. And she even has her own line of pet customizeable caftans (regular ones too I suppose)??? Totally creepy. And of course Landon bought one. Kiss ass. What is Pat's obsession with caftans? Anyone know? We almost never see her wearing anything else. To me, that is bizarre.

    S04.E08: Sari, Not Sari...

    Personally I think Craig has every right to be mad at Naomie for the things she's been doing. She treats him like shit, or like a child, and when she doesn't get her way she's a Pouty Patty. She also seems to enjoy airing their dirty laundry to anyone who will listen, along with picking fights in a group scenario....and none of that shit is cool in a relationship. She claims to be all "ride or die" to Craig and to the therapist, yet she refuses to take any responsibility for her part/actions that make Craig fired up like that. He doesn't just blow up out of nowhere, there's always a source. It used to be Shep but now it's mostly Naomie. It seems Craig has stepped back from the "scene" (as in, skipping some group gatherings and not caring, dinners at Patricia's, etc..) and it really burns Naomie's ass. She probably expected more fancy parties, meeting "important" people, lots of bar nights, whatever. And Craig seems to mostly be over it. I'm sure half the reason she hooked up with him in the first place was for camera time and dollar signs. Yet when Craig goes to invest his money in real estate suddenly she acts like he's being irresponsible - but he's not. Rental properties can be good business. Plus, since he legally owns the home if for some reason he needs somewhere to live then he's set. Plus we know during filming he was working on his thesis and studying for the bar exam. Going out and partying all the time certainly isn't good for that. The sewing is just filler shit so the cameras aren't just staring at him poring through books or staring at his computer. So what if in his spare time he likes to build things and garden? Those are good skills to have! Naomie is a spoiled brat who doesn't seem to understand that these sort of things are what adults do. Lastly, what does she do with herself? I know she's going for an MBA and all, so one would think she'd be understanding about Craig not being focused on partying so he can finish law school. I also bet that all Naomie really wants is her MRS. degree (preferably with someone of wealth).....then all that fancy education will have been wasted, Has she even said what she plans to do after graduation? Hell.. at least Craig has goals.....and he accomplished them. Can't say that about Naomie. And PS to southern people.....northerners do tend to speak louder. Maybe not everyone, but it is a pretty common trait.

    S04.E06: To Liver And Die In Charleston

    It always confused me that Patti Stanger, a self professed [millionaire] matchmaker, can find so many clients "love" and yet is still single herself. Matchmaker my ass.

    William Shephard Rose III: Roman Numerals Tell You He's Rich

    Definitely nothing special about ShepGear. Besides, aren't trucker hats over by now? I will say I had a laugh at the Dad Bod shirt, because I could totally picture Tom Schwartz from VPR wearing it. But beyond that, Shep's "line" sucks.

    S04.E03: Step and Release

    Was it just me or did the guys (Shep, Thomas, Austen, Whitney, and mullet-man) look out of place at the bar? They just looked so much older than anyone else there.

    Cast members and disability payments

    Here in PA the Section 8 housing list is currently closed, and the wait list (from what I hear) is literally years, and families have top priority. At this point I'm staying with my folks til my boyfriend moves out of his friends' house and gets a place of his own...then I will live with him. He's currently in the process of saving a down payment for a house. We're shooting for living together by this fall.

    S05.E14: Steven and Justin's Story Part 2

    That's how it is for me. I have a pain management/narcotics contract with my GI which means I can't get narcotics from any other doctor without my GI's approval (like when I had pneumonia a few months back and my primary doc prescribed me codeine cough syrup, but they wouldn't let me have the script until I showed them the text from my GI saying it was ok). The only place I don't have to get prior approval from is the ER. Makes me wonder why Dr. Now didn't have him sign a contract...though I suppose even if he did Steven would still doctor shop or ER hop because he doesn't care. Here in PA you also can't get narcotics filled without a paper script and there's no way for a doctor to prescribe it afterhours or on weekends because you can't just call/fax it in, even if it's only a small "hold-over" amount until you can get into the office. Though that may vary from state to state, I am not sure.

    S05.E14: Steven and Justin's Story Part 2

    I've been to the ER plenty of times and the majority of the time I was never given a pain med script to take home. The one time I did it was for 10 pills, because I had a kidney stone. It blows my mind that somehow he gets (multiple!!!) ER doctors to write scripts for hundreds of pills. I've never heard of that ever. I take pain meds regularly for my health issues and even then (from my specialist's office) I don't get that many at once. And he does this all the time? I am floored.

    Two questions. Did he ever get the surgery? Do we know? And second, if not how fast do you think it took him to gain all the weight that he lost back?

    Holy shitballs. He actually lost weight. A significant amount, too! Should we take bets on how fast he gains it back?

    I am on a Medicaid insurance plan because I am on SSI for medical issues, my prescriptions each cost $1. A few are free. I don't have copays for anything, and most doctors around here accept my insurance. So yeah, Medicaid is pretty much a free ride.

    Justin's excuses aren't much better than Steven's. His coping mechanism is music? Uh, no sir. You definitely are eating your feelings.
