    S07.E05: Minority Deport

    I guess I'm misremembering, because I thought Maritza DIDN'T speak Spanish, or at least not well. Wasn't that established in an earlier season? Or am I confusing her with someone else? Also, can someone explain to me what was going on with McCullough and the storage unit that seemed to belong to . . . Alex? I guess? That was weird. I must have missed something.

    Meri Brown and her Wet Bar of Tears

    I probably missed this somewhere so please forgive... But what the hell is "pre-evacuated"? Packed up and ready to go?

    Christine Brown: She Wanted a Family, Not Just the Man

    Even though I've seen every episode more than once, I have just rewatched the entire series because I need background noise in my head while doing stuff to keep the crazy at bay. And after doing so I must reiterate what I said in the very first post in this thread many moons ago . . . I'd be friends with Christine. I really would. She's hilarious. She clearly has questionable judgment in men and belief systems, IMO, but I think she'd be a scream to play games with. And she seems like the only wife who doesn't ever question this weird situation she's gotten herself into. In fact, she seems to thrive in it, so . . .good for her, I guess? Anyway, Christine, next time I go to the Grand Canyon I'm gonna look you up, girl!

    10:09 Kody's Secret Plan

    Yes, this is what I was coming here to say. I'm pretty sure that was all done just for the show to create "drama." Kody knows his wives won't go for it, that it is impractical and too expensive (etc) but he's doing it for the cameras. TLC either paid that draftswoman for else she did it for free for the exposure. That's how it read to me from the very beginning.

    S10:11 Leaving Las Vegas

    I'm a former college professor. Any college or university that receives federal funds, which includes students receiving federal financial aid (so, basically all schools) are required as part of that arrangement to have some sort of disability services office and programs to assist students with special physical, mental or psychological needs. The school is required to make reasonable accommodations in classwork, housing, transportation, etc. if the student provides official proof of a diagnosis from a doctor or mental health professional. So as long as Dayton has documentation, he should be able to get help. I don't know if that help will extend to having a live-in helper (I've never heard of that). But I have seen students who have an assistant come with them to class to help them by taking notes for them or answering questions, or working with them one on one. And then he could get accommodations on his assignments (like giving him extra time on tests; giving him extensions on due dates, etc.)

    S10:04 Kody's Shocking Move

    But, but . . . .where they go one they go all!

    S10:04 Kody's Shocking Move

    Yes, she wanted to be in the same town where Dayton went to college. Normally I would consider that diva-like behavior from someone who wanted to continue being the center of her son's world. But, having a somewhat developmentally delayed child myself, one who needs more support and help than most others his age, I can sympathize with what she did. Or at least, I understand there might have been a less than selfish motivation there. Ok, a little selfish because, let's face it, it's Robyn. But I do think her motivation was partly sincere.

    S10:04 Kody's Shocking Move

    Ok, only now catching up on the most recent ep, so pardon the late remarks. First up . . . what the FUCK is up with Kody's hair? I've never seen it so many different kinds of wrong all in the same episode. In that first scene with the presentation it was all stringy and I thought maybe it was wilting in the Nevada heat. But then Robyn walked in wearing a coat so apparently it wasn't hot out. Also, I now need to see Kody attempt to make his own breakfast. Kody running for office? HAHAHAHAHA! I want to see that so bad. Also, the show continues just straight up cribbing from the plots on Big Love.

    S10.E02: Sister Wives Secrets

    Christine: “Shut it, Kody. It’s not your turn to make noises” Heh. I genuinely LOL'd at this.
  10. Becky's self-admitted boozer trailer trash tramp character is really the only reason I'm still watching. Her lines are the only thing that make me laugh. Also what deal did she make with the devil to be 42 years old and still look no more than 27?

    S09.E04: Meri's Crazy Idea

    Kody, re: Meri: "It's like we're a divorced couple just living on the same street." Me: "You ARE a divorced couple just living on the same street!"

    S16.E01: One Size Does Not Fit All

    So I'm not the only one who mutes the tv when the twins are speaking right? Yeah, I thought so.

    The Keepers

    Jean telling her story in a national forum is the single bravest act of courage it's ever been my honor to witness. She has earned my undying respect.

    Meri Brown and her Wet Bar of Tears

    Ok, so I've managed to successful avoid Lularoe in my life. I've had some acquaintances try to invite me to groups or sales on FB, but I have just ignored them and so far that's worked out fine for me. Until today. As soon as it happened I knew I had to come here and share the experience with you guys. I went to pick my daughter up at the house of a fairly new friend. I had met her mother casually at a couple of school events and we had spoken on the phone, so I felt comfortable letting my daughter go over there (she's just turned 14). When I went to pick her up, I ended up having to go into the house (ugh) and was immediately greeted by the overly-cheery SAHM, who to be fair does seem like a very nice person. But I had been in the house less than 2 minutes when my daughter came running down the stairs with her friend wearing, I kid you not, lularoe leggings with CHINESE FOOD BOXES all over them. I assure you she did not have them when she left my house. Yeah. Apparently her friend had given them to my daughter as a birthday present. Well, they had let my daughter pick out whatever pattern she wanted because (and here's where I realized I was in trouble), her mother sells Lularoe and has an ENTIRE ROOM, floor to ceiling all around the perimeter completely covered with lularoe crap. I'm not exaggerating. It looked like a warehouse. The mother insisted I step in the room with her as she babbled on happily about how much she loves lularoe and the clothes and her business, and, I surely had some lularoe myself by now, right? No!? I didn't? Well, how is that possible? Just feel them. (I admit, they do feel really good). Has anyone come to your school (I'm a teacher) and set up a display for your staff yet? Oh, please give me a call--here's my card--I'd be happy to do that if you have a vendor day at your school (we don't, to my knowledge). Because I was actually taught manners growing up I didn't verbalize the first thing that came into my head, "Are you batshit crazy?" and instead said (in a politely curious tone), "I've heard of lularoe, of course, but I've also heard that sometimes the leggings rip easily. Is that true?" Then I got a 2 minute lecture about how, yes, they've had some trouble with the quality in the past, but that was just some of the first batches and the company has it all ironed out now so there's no need to worry. (My daughter's leggings seem, on first inspection, to be fairly strong and not like something that would rip easily, so . . .maybe?) Anyway, I was seriously starting to worry that I wasn't getting out of that house without buying some damn fugly leggings, but fortunately I managed to politely disentangle myself and my daughter. So my takeaways from that experience: 1) This lady really genuinely seemed into selling these things as a "fun" thing to do that she really enjoys, and didn't seem to be trying to get rid of stuff to get out from under it. 2) But that may be because her husband is a lawyer and local politician and they seem to be doing quite well financially, so it's not like they NEED any money she brings in from the business. It's possible it's just a hobby for her rather than a necessary money-making venture. 3) The leggings seem soft, and there were some decent looking floral patterns and what not, so not everything is ridiculous. But a lot of it was. 4) They are cute on my 14 year old, because 14 year olds can do whimsy in their fashion. 40 year olds, not so much. Fin.
