  1. This is so interesting, @SRTouch! I had no idea there was so much info-gathering going on in my local pizza place! Do you know if these practices are pretty widespread or just limited to the larger chains with computerized ordering systems? You'd think people would be smart enough not to try the same thing repeatedly at the same pizzeria, but we've all watched JJ long enough to know how far that particular assumption gets you.
  2. Probably to sow dissent, suspicion, and competitiveness among the uninvited. Just to ramp up the usual Bravo drama. You never know when it'll come in handy. 🎭
  3. This is what's known in legal circles as the Modess Defense. (I just Googled Modess pads to see if they were still sold. They are. And I found this, in reference to how taboo the whole subject of menstruation was: "Johnson & Johnson devised creative advertising strategies, including silent purchase coupons. The coupons allowed women to simply hand the voucher to the sale associate and the buy the pads without uttering a single word." I guess we have come a long way.) Did it look to anyone else as if the Scammer/Liar/Thief was pregnant again? Just what the world needs more of. The little girl in the Jack Russell case was exquisitely beautiful, but she had a rather odd affect, I thought. Not that it will stop the offers of modeling contracts from pouring in--if she isn't already doing that. JJ does understand that when you watch Honeymooners reruns on TV, they're in black and white because that's how they were filmed, doesn't she? I'm never really sure how much of that techno-ignorance is genuine and how much is put on for comedy's sake.
  4. Just guessing: facial hair--Shavr trimmed nails--Bluntr french milled soap--Lathr pasta without tomato sauce--Naked Noodlr I hope this helps your . . . friend. There really is a lid for every pot.
  5. Me, too. The gap between how I wish my thighs looked and how they actually do. 🥓
  6. I was pulling for him to tack "but live and learn" onto that sum-up so I could award him the highly coveted (and rarely bestowed) Cliché and Nothing But Cliché Award. Sadly, he faltered at the finish line. You can't win 'em all.
  7. ^^^ All of this is exactly what I thought. Travis seems to be trying way too hard to look like the perfect husband this season.
  8. It was nice to see Kate take a break from kidnapping the Lindbergh baby and bombing Cambodia to compliment Kevin's food (he seems to be a bottomless pit of need for compliments, though we haven't seen him compliment the service or the table settings even once), be polite to Abbi (who deserved no politeness whatsoever), offer to do whatever Tanner needed, not stab Ashton when he tried to mouth-rape her, and so on. Of course it'll be a relief once she goes back to strangling kittens, but this was a pleasant respite. And speaking of Abbi for one last time, wasn't it supposed to be in the 90s during the day when they were there? So why was she trembling inside that anorak or windbreaker or whatever it was? I guess she thought trying to look cold helped boost her unhappiness cred, along with smearing fake water tears on her face. What a loon.
  9. Me neither. Just the opposite, in fact. Which means, if she's lucky, that she doesn't have any traits in common with the bitch who birthed her.
  10. I assume that Allison Tolman was cast first, given that she's the lead. But casting Clancy Brown as her father was so brilliant. They really look as if they could be father and daughter. The only more perfect parent/child casting I can think of is Noah Beery as James Garner's dad in The Rockford Files--they not only looked alike, they felt alike, as if they knew each other from the beginning of time. This pairing has that same quality to me. If the show doesn't get picked up, I hope some other outlet saves it.
  11. Just about everything you sign away is worrisome to me, too. And the incredibly galling part is that you pay them for the privilege of giving them an eternal license to do what they will and profit from ownership of a part of your body. It's like a license to steal in perpetuity, and you pay them to do it to you. And your children and your children's children . . . Unbelievable. Always read what you sign, for sure.
  12. I don't have a problem with that part of it either. What I do have a problem with is some private database owning my DNA and profiting from it after I use their service just to get info about my heritage or predictions about my health. So, as I understand it, Ancestry.com, for example, becomes a part owner of my DNA while I'm still alive (and I can only imagine the kinds of problems that might create), and they own it in full after I die. The terms of service you agree to when you submit to DNA testing say that you “grant AncestryDNA and the Ancestry Group Companies a perpetual, royalty-free, world-wide, transferable license to use your DNA, and any DNA you submit for any person from whom you obtained legal authorization as described in this Agreement, and to use, host, sublicense and distribute the resulting analysis to the extent and in the form or context we deem appropriate on or through any media or medium and with any technology or devices now known or hereafter developed or discovered.” Thanks but no thanks. I'll live on in ignorance if that's the alternative. It's totally Brave New World territory, and no one seems to be putting the brakes on it.
  13. I'm gonna say that Monique couldn't have been serious about assaulting Candiace, because anyone who pulls that girl's hair must do so in the full expectation that it will come off instantly. Kind of like pulling Aviva's leg. More of a gesture than an actual assault.
  14. Me, too. But I always seem to violate that teaching on the Internet. So . . . All other issues temporarily aside, what was the wife in that nanny case thinking, hiring that young woman to spend all day alone at home with her husband, given the . . . I'm gonna say discrepancy in their appearances? She's lucky all that got ruined were a bunch of knives. I'll go sit next to SRTouch now.
  15. People marry across ethnic/national/religious lines all the time. My own parents did. So I don't find it unusual that he has a Spanish first name and an English surname (mother Mexican, father something else). I do find other things about him unusual, though.
