I mean, “Why I Live at the P.O.” was Eudora Welty living for petty like all true Southerners, myself included, secretly or not so secretly do.

Trust me even if I explain to you what happens right now, you would still be deeply confused. I had to listen twice.

I was just noticing the like disparity. Symone has the most likes at 39K, with Gottmik at 36k, and Rose approaching but not quite at 33K. That all seems to line up with the odds of each person winning. Kandy has 10k. At this point, the show seems cruel for bringing her into a finale just to be embarrassed like this, Read more

Right? You’re draining a cow abscess, my dude. That’s messy work, so maybe just take your shirt off?

Oh that’s good intel, as I currently have three different eyebrow pencils and a powder and hate all of them. Thanks!

Yeah, I think what was so different and unique about Crystal even more than her penchant for dressing like a furry was just the big, silly heart that was so obvious in her best performances, which is why Gottmik is closer to that trope for me than Utica this season.

The past two weeks as I’m finishing up the recap I’ve thought to myself “Shit, I forgot about Olivia,” which is exactly how I feel about Olivia in the competition at this point. And I don’t dislike her! She’s just kind of gotten lost in the shuffle.

I competed in a pre-teen beauty pageant in the navy blue version of that dress with a white bow and applique. Got third runner up that year, I think.

I would very much like to see Kandy v. Utica in a lip synch just for the fact that truly anything could happen. Licking, gymnastics, a small fire, both of them simultaneously drinking milk out of a single ramekin like house cats. Anything.

Also, when Tina said she was looking forward to the final four and Rose answered, “Yeah, you will have fun watching it,” I. Lost. It. That moment made me a Rose fan no matter what happens even though I’m rooting for Symone.

Agreed. It seems fairly obvious at this point that final three are Symone, Rose, and Gottmik with Symone to win. If there is a final four, I don’t think it will matter much because I just don’t see Utica or Olivia as real contenders at this point. And Kandy. Bless. It’s almost cruel to keep her beyond next week.

I swear that man spelled shit (up to and including his own name) just a little bit weird specifically to make writing about that novel even more difficult. Changing now. Thanks.

Ahh, sorry. I temporarily took up my old job as night blogger all prepared for the “this is wrong and there’s a typo” brigade and then found it where it wasn’t. Friends again?

No us guys didn’t. I linked the CAA blog Justice wrote and the fact that he will likely face no repercussions if he “lays low” is literally stated in the last two lines of the blog. Wow, feels great to be back on nights. Hello y’all.

Fine if you need more justification than the half a million images of children being raped he hoarded, I have a PhD in literature and his poem fucking sucks too.

No, I’m going to not forget the way Thorgy (and Acid Betty) treated Chi Chi like a hay truck bumpkin for an entire season after dismissing her as not on their quirky art school drag level. That was gross.

Right? Like, it’s one thing to say that side by side, with the exception of the sleeping bag, Gottmik’s looks were just slightly stronger than Utica’s. But to blame her having a personality is baffling.

Growing up in North Louisiana, I never even considered the possibility of using dill relish in literally anything until I was about 25. Like I’m not sure they even sell it where I’m from. It might be illegal like selling alcohol on Sundays.

What I’m learning from this discussion is that Jez commenters are a bunch of Buds when the point of that perfect film was that we should all try to open our hearts and minds to the idea of being a little bit more of a Sissy. Not by putting pecans in tuna salad though, I’m not advocating for anything truly obscene.
