TV Literate


Cabinet drawer at work once because we accidentally locked the keys inside of it and I don't know how and we picked it with like a nail file in a bobby pin and it took us like an hour and a half but it did. It felt so accomplished I had to pick a door wants because and I still have to this day. Have no idea how this happened. But somehow I think I was in the shower and Willow. Kinda likes to be with me wherever I go so she kinda just hangs out in the bathroom in the shower and exactly and somehow I close the door and she got locked in and I don't know how she got locked in but she was literally locked in the bathroom all alone for like an hour and had to pick at the door for like an hour. I was out anyway. It was all she was just like children the bathroom for an hour by yourself areas. And you can't tell you know exactly so. Yeah that's my lock pick story. It's not nearly as cool as the mausoleum one. Yeah but yeah. I had no idea that I've never seen. Tlc Show where they dug up a body and broke into a Muslim. I had no idea we were going to be doing that stuff when when I signed up for this but the closest thing to do the body I've ever seen on. Tlc was when they found like a dead raccoon and orders. Yeah and I don't. Yeah that's not nearly as fun. It's not. It's not that this is fun but it's it's cool. It's really interesting. It's fine in the interesting way like exactly. It's a mind puzzle so okay I have to talk about Cindy and Cindy was the one who knew her mom Lisa right and it has been gotten estranged again which you know is fair questions answered. I can understand why you wouldn't have a relationship with family But that whole thing was kind of wild and felt very TLC but her dad was called. Pickles I out I I. I loved that. Yeah she was like. Oh yeah lead and pickles. That's my my OTP RIGHT. Like she turns anything else does pickles. His name was John but he went by pickles. Yeah I would not be at all surprised to know that his name was pickles. I wish it were hope it is. I'M GONNA GO ANCESTRY DOT COM it. Yes figure out. Pickles is true identity man. This is like the opposite of one of my greatest fear is when I did. My Dad was that like I was afraid. Oh No what if? I'm not actually related to the people I think are related to and now but like this is like the opposite where you want. You want to know like that. I don't I don't know it's kind of a up. I don't know I'm not really sure where I was going to bed now. Yeah I feel like the just. There's a lot of emotions that go behind the DNA stuff. I've never got my DNA testing my brother. And that's close enough. So Barry White am related to my cousin. That's yeah it was. I was glad to hear that up related to my cousin. I recently had a cousin. Don't didn't know of contact me through ancestry. Dna and she lives in San Francisco. We're friends on facebook now. That's kind of cool. Yeah cousin a cousin is cool. Because it's not like a sister that would raise a lot of questions but the cousin is like it's I could fuck with some more cousins. Yeah like just it. It gives me more branches to research. Because you know those kind of only so far you can go janey logically most the time unless you had somebody in the family who was like crazy about genealogy so like you can usually get to like the eighteen hundreds the issue and then you just have to keep branching out like oh who did they marry. And who their parents and drunkenness of separation myself to Kevin Bacon yes. That's probably true camping that far. No we can't be that far anyway. Stephen Let's talk about Steven Steven and his lovely beard. Beard was so amazing and I just felt so on him because he I did too. 'cause like this is the only argument that I have for like legal adoption is that they do put through the ringer to see if you actually are wanting a child and got to be a decent parent and provide for the child. Yeah because his parents his adoptive parents were so cruel Heen to have and like would like actively lied about his like biology just so like to throw him off track and that is like so evil yeah and they just kept telling him that he was adopted and that it wasn't you know like I don't know they were just into him and he's like Oh scratching fight and he said that a couple times and I was. I bet he had a real rough time growing up. I yeah and I can't imagine not only that but then just having so many questions about where you came from I just. He's I feel so bad for him but I'm so glad he got some family. Yes I am. Also he's only eight years older than my mom and that's shocking. Because my mom does not look like Steven Steven has been rode hard and put up wet. Yeah I think Steven Steven looks that as Stephen looks like his life was hard and we know that it was so quickly but and he really gave me like the whole vibe. I guess for the whole rest of the episodes for me when he was like. We're only a sick as the secrets we keep in. That's why he liked. Doctor Hicks died early. That's why all that stuff so do you think. What do you think happened to his twin? Do you think there was a twin? I don't know it's so hard to I. Don't know like maybe his twin was just given away and died or you know it was pretty common back in the day to have only one twin live through childbirth. Right exactly especially if like in the circumstances where it seemed like he was born not the greatest care so I would not surprise me at all to just find out that the baby was stillborn or died really soon after birth. What if what if his parents got both babies only one lived. That can happen and I would hate to think about that. I'm so sorry I didn't mean to put you. Don't think about it. We're not in quarantine to sitting here thoughts or anything. I was really happy though that it seems like Stephen has a daughter who was with him lot. It seems like she's really supportive and really there for him so at least she had at least even has that now. I mean obviously doesn't make up for his horrible childhood but at least he has somebody there from now and I mean his wife showed up to all the things she just didn't really ever talk to the which was so it so like he has a supportive family that he's created for himself which gives me hope for him. Yes I felt so bad for him so I just hope he enjoys the rest of his life. Yeah I think it'll be nice for him and Kathy to bond. Yes yeah weird. Yeah this just crazy and it just feel like every time. A question was answered like eight. Mar Questions. Came up So in the Stephen Section this guy last thing I have to say about it is I'm really glad that he got to meet Cathy. And like there was no other like relative or whatever that they found because Cathy was dislike so amped and excited to have a brother and she didn't have because she didn't know he existed. There was no like prior resentment or guilt or like anything that comes with a lot of these relationships like if I had found his parents and leg why did you give me up or did you think I was dead or whatever right lake goes back to the finding out you have a cousin thing in this situation like the best situation is to find out. You have another sibling. That just didn't know that you existed. Yeah it's like good news. This person that you thought died in childbirth is in fact alive and they have had a life a life. Yeah so okay do you. Did you recognize Chris? Jacobs are the other lady the lady on here from anything because they looked so familiar from correct. I feel like I the lady I was trying to place who she was but I have no way. Maybe I feel like the only thing I can think of is. Maybe they've been on like some. Tlc reunions that I've seen or something let's see. Her name is Lisa joyner. She is married to Jon Cryer. But after the baby girl she started co hosting long lost family with Chris. Jacobs on TLC okay. I didn't really watch that. Maybe I've seen the previews of it of stuff. I've heard of it my mom Joe so yeah I've definitely heard of that one. I have to watch some of that. 'cause you know how much I love? Ancestry Bullshit Yeah. Yeah which I remember. I remember seeing Previews for this When it was aired last year on. Tlc But. I don't know I had no idea that it was about this. I thought it was just about like finding adoptive parents which is fine but I just wasn't something I was really wanting to watch so I had no idea that this was actually about this. Whole Hicks. Clinic thing with nuts. Yeah I thought this was about that fertility doctor. That just used his sperm. That's what I initially thought it was about him. I had thought that too because that was in the news pretty recently. That was much more. Recent News Story. So that brings us up to episode three Which was basically where we got all the results and they started getting all stuff from DNA back and right. I guess I have to preface this with the fact that a lot of my family is from the deep South Right and there are a lot of branches that aren't super spread out my family tree but it comes with the territory. I I relate to that to the fact that all of them had light is red hair and webbed feet. They have to be related to each other somehow. Yeah that's a whole lot of recessive genes. That so for yeah. I think for that many people around the same age to be sharing that many recessive genes there has to be some some overlap in the gene pool there. Yeah I mean it's a small town so I think that probably has a lot to do with it but like they have to some of them had related like some cousins or something right and like if you think about it like how long the Hicks Clinic operated like you know that there were repeat customers and you know that there were guys who were impregnating multiple people at the time so there has to be some sort of relation between a lot of these people. I would assume yeah. I can't imagine West Virginia also apparently outside of Ireland has the highest concentration of red heads and I think that probably the same things like. It's not incest necessarily but the gene pools are small and like I live in a town of five hundred. You're going to end up cousin to pretty much. Everybody right and a lot of people who live in small towns. Don't really ever leave those small towns and so they don't really interact with people outside the small towns very often so that's who they procreate with procreation procreation and now exhumation which we already kind of talked hell. Yes the the two ends of the spectrum. I suppose Um the doctors were great. They were awesome. They were so I loved how knowledgeable they were but they were also just like sweet and funny and they were just such bad asses and and they were like so cheery despite the fact that they were going to basically like open up stinky human soup and leg right. There were just unfloppable. Yeah and they were talking about. How like you never come back once. You smell like dead people and there's like yeah it's just you never forget it okay. It's a badge of honor knows the smell of death. I am thankful that I do not know that smell because it's not a good smell good smell at all. I'm sure yeah all right.
