The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

It was Jeremy's childhood favorite food, not Jinger's though. He seems to come from a fairly well-off middle-class background, so I don't doubt that he ate shrimp cocktail and seafood somewhat routinely as a child. 

Ah, I missed that part. I’m sure he wiped his mouth with a silk napkin.

That made me laugh hard because I can totally see it! Maybe this is where he got the fixation on pocket squares from? LOL

These two are getting to into Jill and Derick territory for me. Every time I'm here they're one of the most talked about couples and yet it's never anything positive, uplifting, or even exciting. It's boring, petty, mundane, attention-seeking bs. I'm tired of both of these couples. I wish they would both quit public life as celebrities and become ordinary people. I know that's not going to happen. I think people follow the Duggars to see Christian extremists and these people aren't extreme enough. 

At this point, the best thing for their careers as public figures would be to announce a pregnancy.  Jinger won't have the most kids, but the Duggar/Bates fans love pregnancies so the leghumpers will be happy.

When I was growing up my mom would by shrimp cocktail in a glass at the grocery store. Maybe that's Jeremy's favorite. 😂

To be fair, there is never anything positive, uplifting, or exciting in ANY of these people’s lives. Not one.

I ADORED shrimp cocktail as a kid and we had the juice glasses to prove it! Sadly, this was a treat we got once a year on New Years Eve, but I also remember fried shrimp being a favorite on the rare occasions we ate out. Now I wouldn’t touch fried shrimp with a ten-foot pole - breading is evil - but those were simpler times. 😁

Folks in coastal Maine tend to eat a lot more lobster than those in the midwest.  I don't think that means they're pretentious or snotty about it.  I imagine Alaskans eat a lot of King crab, and folks from the Pacific Northwest eat a lot of Salmon.  Geography is key.

The question was answered by Jeremy, not Jinger.  I don't believe he & his family existed on handouts, like the Duggars did.  

Jeremy's family wasn't living in poverty, and the shrimp cocktail answer was his, not Jingers. 

Yes, thank you. I was corrected above as well.

Ahem. Before we moved to the Maine coast and lived there for 14 years, I loved lobster. In Maine we could buy it off the docks for $2 a pound.

But after a few years of driving behind bait trucks and smelling what lobsters like to eat, (old herring, mostly...very VERY odiferous)...the thrill was gone. I don’t think I ate it the last five years we lived there!

I’d be willing to attempt to get sick of lobster. For science.

They've heard our criticisms.   "Jinger and Jeremy don't actually do anything. All they do is shop and eat. Jeremy's in seminary/graduate school, and he never studies. ..."

This what we used to call the F-U internets, where the Duggars do something to prove their haters wrong. Usually Michelle hanging out with one of her kids, who isn't Jessa, Josie, etc.

Many schools have already begun their summer sessions, especially private ones that don't follow the traditional University schedules.   

I had a Summer Term I class begin on the 11th, for a program I'm in at my local U.

can you hear Jinger using the term "delightfully quick" in real life?

this is so staged - there is no food in the hidden pan, no utensils near the stove, no ingredients etc

and Jer just now, months into stay home/stay safe in L.A. acknowledges online classes when semester is over in most schools?

 

 

Unless he's decided to attend the summer session, the semester's over at The Master's Seminary, too. The last day of finals was May 8. 

Now he may have decided to go to the summer session, of course. It started on May 11. It'd be a little surprising if he were that industrious, I think. To immediately start more classes with only a two-day break. But if he is doing that, he would have had some strong evidence of a work ethic to brag about....so I'm surprised we didn't hear about it, if it's true. 😄

According to the academic handbook, for his program about the only thing you can usually take in summer is Greek.....Seems possible that he dropped that Beginning Greek course he started last fall to make his schedule easier and he's starting it over again now or is taking the second semester of Greek now to clear his fall schedule a bit.....Maybe they arrange the schedule to make that possible because many people find it much easier to take the Greek courses on their own to be able to concentrate more on all the memorization and such.

There is a farm on the Kennebec that has been in the same family since before 1776. Back then the laborers were promised that they wouldn't be served salmon more than three times a week.

Remember the first time Jeremy came to dinner at TTH?  They were so proud of serving him Italian food.  It was a tin foil pan of frozen lasagna served on paper plates and plastic forks.  Josie ate with her fingers and Jessa reprimanded her, since obviously Michelle didn't care.

Ugh what are those captions? Fake, so fake. And why? It’s not like the Vuolos are even trying to pretend they’re doing cool stuff. I can believe they actually do eat pasta for dinner and study sometimes, those are ordinary activities. So what’s with the creepy charade, as though they have to fake boiling pasta or w/e “for the fans.” If you’re cooking spaghetti carbonara lately, Jinger, just say that and take a picture one of the nights you make it. Jeez Louise.

Why are they the most awkwardly pretentious people on the planet?

Maybe he already did but he's keeping it on the downlow till he graduates....

I'm pretty sure his fellow divinity students are pissed that he's getting free rent. If they found out he'd scored an actual free house, he might get beaten to a pulp in a narthex or an out-of-the-way side chapel by a mob of angry Calvinist pastors-to-be. 😈

I love that kitchen, though, I prefer a white one for myself, but, I did laugh when I read that caption.  The FIRST thing I do when I go near RED sauce is take off any white clothing.  lol  For ME, I can't get near it in white, without getting  a spec on my clothes.  Maybe, she was preparing white sauces, but,  it didn't sound that way.

Bin's such a tragedy, really.

Because I think he kind of is a lifelong learner. I think he really does like books and learning, according to his lights. But since he doesn't seem to be that bright and has a somewhat poor background from Guinn's homeschool (although not nearly as piss poor as the Duggars'. for example), he's not been in a position to make much (anything?)  either of his actual post-secondary education or learning on his own.

He needed/needs teachers and motivated classmates to talk to, and tests and assignments that get graded and courses that are constructed to lead students along a learning path....He needed/needs a home without a bunch of little kids running around in it and a wife and a set of in-laws and some actual friends who really support his learning and his ambitions and talk to him about it and so on......But instead he's totally embedded in an in-law family that loathe and despise learning and thinking in all their forms and make no secret of that. 

I know Bin got himself into this. But he was a dumb and utterly naive kid when he did it and his father was behind him pushing hard.......So I still can't help but feel kind of bad for him.

Because I'm pretty sure Jessa wouldn't be trying to portray him as an intellectual if that weren't a bit of a dream that he has. I seriously doubt Jessa gives a shit about anything involving the intellect.......

But given where Bin is now and where his life is almost certainly going, I think it's likely he'll never even read many books on his own with much understanding. let alone be able to do anything with whatever he learns or even have a chance to talk about books with a group of friends. He seems highly likely to be a lifetime toilet cleaner or lawn mower whose kids get shoved through home school with the Duggar aim of emerging as disparagers of education, just like the rest of the Duggar clan. It'd be nice to think that won't happen, but I don't really see what's going to stop it.

For all we know, Ben liked Jessa not because she was the “hot” one but because she was the “smart” one. The teacher in the family.

I wish Ben had grown up in a normal family and could fulfill his destiny to be a PE Teacher. He would love it..
