    S.09 E.01: Nice To Marry You

    Years ago I dated a guy who was 6'6" tall. I am 5'4". Like others have said, in bed, it was not an issue. But I do remember that while walking around and talking, I did get tired of having to look up at him; it bothered my neck to look up that high, particularly when standing right next to him. I remember when we were out, I would often seek out some stairs or a small curb or ledge to stand on to kiss him. His height had nothing to do with why we broke up, though. Maybe I would have just gotten used to it if we stayed together, but after that, I realized that having a shorter guy had some benefits.

    S17.E13: One Elle of a Day

    How old is Hester? Clueless came out in 1995...so 24 years ago. Just trying to figure out how old she was at that time. Its possible that she saw the movie when she was young and it somehow imprinted into her brain and affects how she designs now. Maybe the movie made a big impression on her, but she isn't conscious of that influence. Is it really possible to do something that no one has ever done before at this point, in fashion?

    Except Chelsea (and Cole)

    There is a lot of pressure on women not to be "bitches." I personally don't care either way... but I don't see it as such a big deal if Chelsea actually does act like a bitch sometimes... particularly with strangers. Lots of "real" celebrities dislike being approached by fans/strangers... even those who choose to make their living by being in Hollywood movies. I think the topic of what celebrities "owe" their fans is a topic that is up for debate... lots of different perspectives on that.

    Tracie & Clint: Bless Yer Hearts

    In terms of why Tracie is Clint's "goddess" .... Shallow Hal, while he was hypnotized, comes to mind...

    Jeremy and Auj Poj

    Do people (who have thousands of followers) REALLY have to talk about potty training???? I know social media has taken over our lives now (not mine), but do parents care at all about their children's privacy? Or am I just uptight and describing potty training is no big deal? I think the upcoming years are going to be very interesting as the kids whose lives have been posted all over social media (not just reality shows, but normal families) are going to be older and able to voice their feelings about this. I think I heard a piece on NPR a while back about that very issue, unfortunately can't find it.

    Jenelle: Birther Of 3, Mother To None

    MTV has hired someone to start up a documentary film program. read it here: https://variety.com/2019/tv/news/sheila-nevins-mtv-documentary-films-launch-1203207687/

    Jenelle: Birther Of 3, Mother To None

    I don't think David really wants his kids. I think he wanted to impregnate Janelle to keep her tied to him, not because he really wanted more children. He probably likes the idea of being a "dad" but if being a dad means giving up drugs and not being abusive and violent, then I doubt he is willing to do that. If he manages to comply with all of the court-ordered requirements, I will be very surprised. This turn of events is very interesting because both Janelle and David now have to walk the walk rather than talk the talk with regards to their kids. They will have to engage in actions to get them back. Social media posts, crying in court, etc, aren't going to have any impact.

    All Episodes Talk: Let's Talk About Dr. Phil, The Show

    Not going to defend coach Mike, but his exercise with Brittany is an example of a Narrative Therapy technique. It actually can be a useful approach for certain people and certain problems. There is absolutely no way that it would begin to scratch the surface of her problems, but it gave him a chance to promote a concept in his book. This woman is clearly very mentally unwell and she is going to require intensive psychiatric intervention to improve. I do wonder if she has some sort of brain damage from her injury. TBI can cause some of the problems she has. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narrative_therapy

    Jenelle: Birther Of 3, Mother To None

    I've become a fan of the reruns of King of Queens. Its a funny show. I like their relationship dynamics. This one with the big hands is one of my all time favorites.

    Jenelle: Birther Of 3, Mother To None

    Its like that episode of King of Queens when they paint Carrie with a huge hand and Doug with chipmunk teeth. ....just looked up the name of the episode- its called "Present Tense" - if you get a chance to see it, its very funny- I think they show reruns every night on a cable channel these days.

    Jenelle: Birther Of 3, Mother To None

    Janelle's income from the show has helped protect her from more severe legal consequences. It shouldn't be that way.... but unfortunately its a reality in our country.

    Janelle Brown: Smarter Than Your Average Brown (Maybe)

    Those are some of the same reasons I started using the ginger chews. I found it much simpler just in terms of being able to quickly eat one rather than having to store fresh ginger, cut it up, etc., and easy to always have a few in my purse when I'm out. I also like the company because they invest in sustainable farming for their ginger.

    It was amazing to see Maelyn win!!!! She really deserved it. During her duet with Sarah McLaughlin (sp?), I thought Maelyn sounded better than SM at certain points. I had checked out a bit during the middle of the season after the ones I liked kept dropping out, and then I heard Maelyn sing that song in the red dress standing on the huge piano and I was hooked back in.

    S17.E19: Season Finale (2019.05.19)

    An example of what you're talking about here .....I just posted a video over on The Voice thread of Jeff Gutt, who went on to join Stone Temple Pilots a few years after being on X Factor. I'm sure being on the show helped.

    Season 16 Discussion

    The only time I hear the song Hallelujah is on singing shows... so I don't really hear it very often. The only other person who sang it that sticks in my mind was Jeffrey Gutt on X Factor - he went on to join Stone Temple Pilots a few years after being on X Factor. Singing starts at 2:15-

    I prefer ginger chews. You can get them at Trader Joe's, as well as many other stores. They are made by this company- https://gingerpeople.com/products/ -- it looks like they also make ginger shots now too. The chews are much cheaper, and less plastic packaging. Their ginger syrup is also really good. They also sell ginger juice, which is pressed/liquid pure ginger. You can just pour it into seltzer or any type of soda and have fresh ginger ale.

    I'm going to tell myself that even if Maelyn doesn't win, she will still end up getting some sort of deal/contract, etc. Maybe even from John!

    Maelyn is one of only less than a handful of singers that have been on this show that actually affect me when they sing.
