OK, I was surprised nobody had started any topics on this. My reactions...
Adofo and Elizabeth. Nice people with some seriously aardvark ideas about the cosmos . And I loved it when Liz said her children were manifestations of god and then the middle kid sneezed (little g's gotta head cold, I guess!). And HOLY MUNG BEANS, she might not stuff her shower with tp, but ants in the kiddies' undies, and hairballs around the floor, and floaties in the turlet.... Urgh. I was thrilled to hear her say she hired a housekeeper. And I can't believe that the dish she wanted to force on her new family was tofu, mung beans and cooked broccoli - I was a vegetarian for years and I still think that's pretty nasty. There are loads of vegetarian dishes that are a whole lot more palateable to the average Joe, and she could have eased them in better.
The Stallones. Also some good qualities, certainly cleaner, and I could just smell that ziti! Made me wish I was allowed to have carbs. Dad seems like an all right guy. But the kids and grannie and Paulette for that matter have the manners of a pack of wolves. What is it about neatniks that they are so incredibly rigid and insufferably rude to anyone who isn't exactly like them? I cannot believe the daughter was having such a conniption over whatever dirt managed to enter her perfect little world in just a week! I am really glad the Dad didn't cater to the little boy's crummy behavior. I'll give Paulette this, though - she seemed to become very attached to Elizabeth's little ones, and they seemed to like her.
Upshot - there is no way I would live with the mess that was in Elizabeth's house, and the religious philosophies are wayyyyyyy too out there for me. It made me sad to see the kids living that way. But I think Paulette needs to think about the importance of raising children who can accept change, who grasp the importance of kindness, and who can come under authority and accept when things don't go their way without throwing such tantrums.
