Gene & Shannon Simmons: Family Fooles


MamaJunebug

Recommended Posts

I've realized that most of my enjoyment of "Gene Simmons' Family Jewels" has been their growing and now grown kids, especially since this season's storyline seems to be homing in on Gene and Shannon, ages 62 and 55 respectively, adopting a child.

TWoP posters have articulated the uneasiness I feel about the whole story arc. .... I'd write more now but the mind isn't as focused as I thought.

Anybody else want to put in an oar?

I don't really follow them but I think its not in the child's best interest to have parents that old when they are infants. When The kid is 10, Gene will be 72 and Shannon 65, both seniors. Children should have parents around if possible, and Gene will be past his life expectancy before the child is an adult and Shannon won't be too far behind him. Parenting doesn't stop the moment your kid hits 18, as many young adults still rely on their parents advice and for emotional support. i think they are too old to adopt.

Is it a ratings ploy? A realty tv driven storyline? I really hope its just something to give them a storyline and that they don't take it as far as getting a kid.

I'm totally with you. While I am a real advocate for adoption, Shannon's baby rabies strike me more self-indulgent than anything. If she really wants to influence more children's lives, she can help Tracy with her twin boys, she can become a mentor of some nature, she can become a spokeswoman for adoption advocates -- she could just do a whole lot of good for a whole lot of people!

I hope that this is what it's leading up to; but if not, what with the kiddoes (Nick & Soph) being pretty much MIA, well, I'll have one less dvr'ed program to watch. ;)

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
