Kendra's entire speech about choosing to go to the same doctor her mother has for her last three births because they know him and she's had good experiences, and choosing to go the doctor/hospital rou

Johanna’s face when Josiah and Lauren have their dinner at the TTH is avatar worthy.    

Okay, maybe it's just the drink talking, but in an ideal world, wouldn't people use deodorant regardless of their relationship status? You know, just for the common good?

I cringed just reading about that honeymoon. They sounded like "ugly American tourists" 

I'm also a bit sad because learning about Greek Mythology was one of my favorite things in school. I'm not surprised the producers tried to get them to name other Gods.

Ugh...does Josiah even like Lauren? He seems like he's tolerating her at best. And she seems normal-ish when she's with the sisters but turns into a silly little girl around him- but just because she thinks she is supposed to.

Did I miss something, or did Josiah and JB not so much as look at each other when the parents came up to bless the bride and groom?

I like how honest Kendra was about chaperones. And how she mentioned how weird it was for their first little bit after being married because it was just the two of them.  Obviously as we know it wasn't too long of weirdness apparently because we know how quickly she got pregnant. lol.

Clearly it has been a while since you've been in a middle school classroom after gym class...or when it is hot...or it is Monday through Friday. This deodorant thing has a learning curve, lol. Nothing like the smell of eau de middle school classroom. 

@Buzzard as always thanks for taking one for the team. I am very grateful to not have to watch this.

I believe they said that he uses more deodorant, not that he just started using deodorant?

Jeremiah's answer to " do you know any characters (so not only gods...anybody) from greek mythology?"

"Napoleon?"

!!!

And Jeremy...how many thick leather bound books do you have on your fancy book shelf that you claim to study all the time. So you study christian antiquity all the time but can barely name Zeus. Like really. Christianity just sprang up from a total void, there is no context or surrounding world. Of course the world was only around for like 4000 years before the time of Jesus... and every bit of that is detailed in the bible....so why would they really worry about worldly history that much. There can't be that much to know right.

The fact that they don't realize the magnitude of what they don't know really scares me.

That really makes their homeschooling look bad.

I'm less bothered by people not knowing things than when people seem proud of what they don't know.

What I find most disturbing is that Boob is totes OK with making his kids look like idiots on national TV for a buck.  He could insist that they only ask questions his kids can answer intelligently (or at least have a prepared answer for).  But that's not as entertaining, is it?

I am sorry, but Joseph responding with the Greek man with "si" was absolutely hilarious. He realized what he did as soon as he did it. It was cute. I actually have found those two really funny on their honeymoon. Far better than watching any of the others. Joseph is pretty funny. 

 

I wasn't surprised they didn't know the gods. They don't read or watch that sort of thing. The average person doesn't need that knowledge really, it's not like they are ever going to have jobs that would require that, and I know they most likely didn't study any of it. What I was surprised with was Ben knowing them all. Go Ben!

I watched this episode because I realized for the first time that I *could* log in to TLC after all, ha. It was.....not as bad as I expected it to be? JoKen in Greece was horridly cringey of course, but overall not as boring of an hour as it could've been lol. 

Seriously fucked up timelines though. I think maybe this is TLC's attempt at "catching up" on the major stuff though? I mean, they completely own up to this episode skipping through September (honeymoon), November (Benessa year3 & Joy saying she's 5mo preg), and January (courtship) + whenever the JinJer drawing date occurred. Episode 2 will cover JoKen's reveal to the family (December or earlier). Ep 3 includes a JoStin babymoon (probs early 2018) but also a JinJer family reveal (probs Nov or Dec). Ep 4 lists JinJer's 1st anniversary (November), JoKen jender reveal (early March), and Si asking Dwain Swanson for courtship permission (probably late 2017). what the actual fuck, haha. for once, so many notable events have occurred in Duggarland in the past year that we can, without any difficulty, call the "reality" show out on its time warp.

Yeah I noticed how wonky this episode was, timeline-wise, as well. Originally I didn't think they would be able to introduce Abbie this season but with the way they're skipping around maybe they'll manage it in the last episode? Although if they follow their usual formula, the last episode should feature the SiRen wedding, so who knows.

Jessa says that she can't even imagine life without kids. It's kind of sad but pretty true, It's all she knows. She spent the first part of her life  watching someone have kids, watching those kids n now she's spending the rest of it looking at her own all the while still being pretty young.

I'm pleasantly surprised by how good Joe and Kendra's chemistry is! They seem really happy and comfortable together. I'm glad the courtship thing works out for some people.

Josiah and Lauren, on the other hand... :/

Definitely need some clarification about Lauren's schooling. Josiah gets points for mentioning that he was attracted to not just her *pure heart* but her mind. Or something like that. He said she was doing college. What does that mean?

Eta: to be clear, he did not say those exact words. I'm paraphrasing.

Eh, SU is overrated. I'm from there and didn't even think of going there.  Jeremy thinks he's way smarter than he actually is...I can't with his sermons...

Jeremy looks sharp and polished with his books and sermons but actually is less informed and studied than pretty boy supposedly  not as bright young Ben whom I suspect had more genuine interest in Church and Religious history and persons.

That reminds me Jessa's letter about how genuine Ben is about his faith.

Also Ben IS college educated, and if he knows more than Jeremy I hope he homeschools his kids.

I  didn't see the whole episode but I commend Josiah for saying Hercules and showing the muscles. That means he knows at least some of the mythos behind the name.

I am starting to think Jeremy is a psuedo intellectual.  I am not entirely sure I am mad at that. Some people like books and brainy things for the ambiance but not so much the challenge of it. Otherwise he is pretending not to know so much, because God forbid he be caught knowing something so worldy as "false gods"! I do think it's the latter mixed in with the years removed from schooling. At this point in his life and line of work, he has no reason to retain the details of that quiz.

      Happy Shavuot to all those who celebrate! I have no idea why, but for some reason God commands us to eat ice cream. Well, dairy. So eat cheese! Eat pizza! Eat ice cream! Eat cheesecake! It has no calories because God commands us to do so!

      I know it’s just a beauty contest but this is the 4th time Jamaica was snubbed in favour of 5 contestants who were clones (with the exception of Peru) 
      Still can’t believe Mexico won. Even Olivia Culpo was looking at the results confused😂
      Shoutout to Haiti, Canada, Thailand and Myanmar who were also snubbed.

      I've somehow invested in this year's Miss Universe pageant. After watching the prelims my favorites are: 
      1. Jamaica (naturally lol but she's doing well)
      2. Haiti (love her energy) 
      3. Great Britain 
      4. Bahamas 
      5. Canada (a beauty! absolutely stunning!)
      6. Japan (adorable) 
      7. Cameroon (also adorable w/ an amazing costume) 
      8. Myanmar (seems sweet)
      9. Vietnam 
      10. Thailand 
      11. USA (I'm rooting for everybody black lol) 
      Not a fan of these but I think they'll place: South Africa, Mexico, Columbia, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Peru, Australia, Denmark, Ireland, Dom Rep. 
      If they make Zozi (the current Ms. Universe) give the crown to a white girl from Pretoria, I will scream.

      So now....do eat a late salad and be cranky before bed because I want dinner and it's too late to eat or....do I tough out the afternoon cranky at my desk and eat dinner?

      So excited, happy. Finally I got my vaccination appointment. The first on the 26th of May , the second on my birthday.  Staying at home is no option, because I work in healthcare, with very close patientcontact. (I make mammograms). Hopefully I can relax a bit more after my vaccination and let the anxiety go.
