The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

Well, this is pretty useless.

 

I wonder if she knows or suspects that, as "influencers," she and Jer have absolutely no idea what they're doing and have not a single useful talent or skill relevant to succeeding at it.

So him being arrested is what changed him? Imagine if he was never arrested we wouldn’t even know this guy. 
It does make me sad for Jinger and the Duggars though he was allowed to be a “normal” teenager go to college, parties, drink, play soccer, travel. The Duggars weren’t allowed to do any of that except travel but with each other and they still looked down there nose at everyone.

She grew up Duggar.  How much more useful, talented or relevant could anyone possibly need to be?

She's wearing the same dress as her previous photo with JereME to advertise the podcast, so I'm trying to picture the photoshoot. "Okay, look at the camera in front of a giant microphone. Great! Now drink a glass of water behind a plant. Great work!" Like what's next? 

And isn’t she actually left handed? But is drinking water with her right hand in the pic?

Out of curiosity I just tried doing that myself with the drink sitting in front of me and it felt so awkward and unnatural to me. Grabbing a drink(or anything else) is such a natural movement I can not imagine doing it with my right hand.

 

(not saying my right hand is a dead weight because it does things my left one can't, like for some reason I can not put sprinkles on anything with my left hand unless it's in a shaker)

Apologies is this has already been explained, but what was Jeremy arrested for?

the People link only said "harassing a police officer" and that once arrested his blood alcohol level was found to be above the level of intoxication (it gave the percent, I just don't remember what it was).  My guess is that he was drunk in public, maybe at a party, and the police came and he was mouthing off to them when they started questioning him.

Well, this probably has no relation to the truth -- like maybe the picture's reversed or something! -- but It's possible that some circumstance just made her get used to it.  

I once felt that way about my left hand and glasses of water and cups of coffee......But in my current furniture layout, both my bedside table and the pick-up-a-drink-while-avoiding-the=computer table by my desk have to be on my left side to get the furniture layout to work.

At first I kept twisting my body all the way around to grab my drinks. But that got old fast, so I started nervously drinking with my left hand......And after a while it got to be completely natural. 

So....maybe it's Jingle's furniture layout in LA. I mean, Jer probably worked that out, so he wouldn't have paid any attention to which hand she had to drink with......Or Jingle's kinda ambidextrous. 😁

EMLTA: Also, Jingle's a left-handed pianist. And that does tend to make you a little ambidextrous, since so much piano music asks for much more flexibility from the right hand than from the left.

This is my favorite part: '“In recent days, God has made it overwhelmingly clear to us that he is leading us out of Laredo. Through much prayer and counsel, the next step for our family is to relocate to Los Angeles....” they told PEOPLE in an exclusive statement.'

I'm sure everyone who remains in Laredo is flattered and grateful to their ex-pastor/ex-neighbor for this, um, unwittingly? totally tone-deaf insulting remark. 

Also, does this mean Jer had to part the Red Sea?

Michelle also got to be a mostly normal teenager, but she stole that opportunity from her own children. And it's not even about the drinking or the parties. Even the opportunity to be a normal mainstream Christian would have been healthier for the Duggar children. Jeremy got to go to college. I can't wait to see if they enroll Felicity in school. None of the Duggar kids even got to be on a baseball team or go to dance class.

And what Jinger describes as her normal day IS a lazy day. And that picture is like something you find in a Metamucil advertisement. Hysterical.

 

 

 

 

What was stolen from them is any opportunity to be exposed to other ideas about how to live, even living in faith as a Christian not according to JB's ideas.  Anything that strayed from JB's plans was inculcated negatively as sinful, dangerous, harmful.  He never afforded his children the opportunity to do as he has done, determine their preferred lifestyle after considering the options and establishing their future as they choose.

I think with Jeremy, Derick and JillR, (probably all of them) their praying is like looking for information to defend your side. If you look hard enough, or twist the facts enough, you'll find what you're looking for. Like God leading you out of Laredo, into law school and even to the GOOD Olive Garden.

I expect you're right about "probably all of them." Or maybe "all or very nearly all of them," to give 'em the benefit of the doubt.

I only take religious arguments seriously when they come from people whose deities sometimes firmly prescribe things that the speakers don't want. (and not just things the speakers pretend they don't want). ... It sharply limits -- but, I'm happy to say -- doesn't snuff out entirely the number of religious arguments I need to take seriously.

That’s cool that you and your husband are left handed. I find lefties to be rather witty and insightful. My daughter is a lefty for everything.

I'm a lefty....but because of how I was taught a few things,  I cut with scissors, bat and golf right handed...I don't think one can judge a pic by handedness criteria.

That pic of Jinger has a Duchess of Cambridge vibe IMO.

I'm a lefty who does some things right-handed because I was forced to as a child. (Thanks for nothing, Mom.) I have a lot of other lefties in the family--including a brother and my dad--and I really think there is such a wide variety in which hand lefties use to do certain tasks. It is endlessly fascinating to me. 

But for that reason, it doesn't strike me as all that odd that she is drinking water with her non-dominant hand. She may have actually started to drink it left handed and they realized the plant was blocking the shot. 🤷‍♀️

All that being said, try walking with your dominant hand in your pocket and the other one not. It's freaky as fuck. LOL

I am left handed, but I work the computer mouse with my right hand because that is how I learned to do it.

Do we know what Jeremy's long-term career plan is? I can't imagine he wants to go back to Arkansas. He strikes me as someone who wants to be famous as a mainstream conservative. You aren't going to get that living in the Duggar compound, or anywhere in Arkansas. There are trendier southern locations though. If he's going to be a pastor, they can't afford to stay in California unless Jinger gets a lot better at the influencer pictures. I have a feeling that Jeremy is finding out that being tied to a Duggar is not the windfall he thought it would be. Jinger has been turned down for multiple advertising/promotion gigs because of her family's beliefs and past statements. But she's still way prettier than Jeremy would be able to snag under normal circumstances.

I think Jeremy's career plan is to become a widely known fundy preacher like his mentor, MacArthur.  I don't think he has any intention of moving anywhere that is not a media center.  I think they're in LA to stay and Jeremy is hoping to be offered a job as one of MacArthur's minions and hopefully, successor, after he is finished.  He thinks he is destined for great things. I don't, but he does.

No way they return to Laredo or Podunk, Arkansas.  I could see them maybe relocating to NYC/East Coast since Jer's parents are in Philly.  I don't think Jer has any plans to join his father's church or succeed him because his dad is not wealthy enough to support the lifestyle that Jeremy wants.  And, Jim Bob is wealthy enough, but would require total control of Jer and Jing if they were to return; so that is not likely, either.

Jeremy won't be "going back to Arkansas."  He's never lived there.  I can see him taking his family to be near his parents or grandparents if they can't find a way to make it in California.  He has at least until next spring in school and then we can see if he gets put on as a junior pastor in some form at their church.  I sort of expect that's what is going to happen.

This! This is why Jinger won’t succeed. Due to no fault of her own, she has no clue what a normal day is for most people. She has never even attended a day of school, seen a parent go to a full-time job, or seen Jeremy do much work as a VERY part-time pastor. She has no clue that what she considers a hard, stressful day is a lazy day to most, and that her “goals” are jokes. 
 

it’s sad that she doesn’t have a wider perspective, too. I definitely feel myself getting like that in the summer too, as a teacher. After several days of lounging, doing housework becomes harder, and any day I actually have to go somewhere, like a doctor’s appointment, seems like a busy day. The difference is that I acknowledge how silly that is, laugh, and feel grateful that I do get a little bit of time to rest in my career. I don’t go on Instagram and be like, “woe is me. I have to go to the eye doctor and vacuum in the same day. I need to set some more goals!”

How times have changed. My husband went through a period of time when he was working about 60 hours a week. One of my kids was around a year old. If you asked her where daddy was, she'd point to a (old school) phone.

When I was small my dad worked long hours, getting home sometimes at 10pm. My mom would keep me up so I could spend a little bit of time with him. It also benefited her as I would then sleep later and so could she!

ok, as a single 32-year-old with many past relationships, this makes me want to barf! Wtf could Jinger possibly have to say to me that would be such “wisdom?” I hate how people like that suddenly become experts on everything once they get married! They are NOT experts on living the single life, lol! I bet Jinger will make her year or two as a biological adult before marriage sound like a 20 year wait. 

Especially since most people didn't have parents not allowing her to marry or being alone with a guy until after the wedding, after he completed a stupid questionnaire and approved by daddy. Jinger's relationship and none before Jeremy was dictated by her parents not by her. But yeah Jinger can give advice.

OK Jinger. I'm closer to JB & M's age than yours and I'm still single. Jana would be a better one to talk about being single than you, but then again Jana is still single and hasn't found a husband. 
For me personally, I would rather be single than married to someone like Jeremy who tells me what to wear, what to eat, how to act.  On Jeremy's Instagram I was accused of being jealous because I posted their recent pictures looked fake and I even missed their foodie posts.  This person said envy isn't good and I need Jesus  (umm, I may not be a fundie, but I am a believer).

I actually thought Jinger would be the one that "breaks free", with all that moving so far away. But like it is said, Jeremy is  Jim Bob v 2.0 and that's not going to happen

Now I think that the happiest with their lives are Jill and Joy.
