Episode 395 – Hookup Con

Guys, Dcon was AMAZING!  Stephen and I had the absolute best time.  We walked until I thought my legs were going to fall off (actually, we waddled because there was no room to take a real step), we met with fantastic people, we laughed until we cried literal tears, and we learned that Oxford commas should always be a thing.

Episode 394 – Sucking Slurpies

I am reading a book series right now that I am in LOVE with!  I read the first one in two days (it would have been one, but adulting eats time I should be spending in books), and started the second one today.  It’s a trilogy and I talk about it on our Anchor station (HnH Show)!  Let us know what you are reading and what WE should read!

Factoid of the Week: A recent study found that people who read are two and a half times less likely to be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Syndrome later on in life. Although this does not mean that reading will prevent the disease, it proves a slight relationship between reading and prevention.

Episode 393 – Voltaire’s Tea

I’ve decided women who type with fake long nails are meta-human.  There is no way you can go from bitten stubs to long-arse nails and be able to type with ease.  Mine have been growing the last couple weeks and are a bit past my finger tips (which is no mean feat considering I have bitten my nails since I was old enough to figure out my fingers would go into my mouth), and it is taking everything in me to type on the pads of my fingers and not my finger tips…. Voice to text is about to become real for me.  (Or I can just wait another week until I cannot control myself any longer and bite them off again.)

Episode 392 – Plutonic Colonic

You know how naps are wonderful?  Some naps are definitely better than others.  Today my nap made me thirsty and I was quite annoyed that it did not turn into a full night’s sleep.  I crashed around 7:30 and I’m pretty sure I could have just slept twelve hours… but I woke up to do this wonderful show for you wonderful people 🙂

Episode 391 – Plastic Coated Tater-Tots

I am putting makeup on.  It is annoying.  I don’t want to paint my face tonight.  Sometimes it is fun.  Tonight I just wish I had naturally rolled out of bed looking like a VS model.  Maybe I should tattoo my face on.  That’s a thing.  I should do that.

Episode 390 – Anal Alarm Calls

I feel like someone spliced my DNA with that of a cat’s at some point before I was created.  Cats like naps, sunbeams, tin foil, staring at squirrels, being jerks, laying on high perches, and Zelda… all things I love as well.  I also wear cat ears to stream in… so, the evidence is pretty clear.  I am a cat.

Episode 389 – My Thing Isn’t Big Enough

Well, I’ve been sick for over a week and a half now, and I finally went to the doctor’s.  They took my bloods.  Why do we pay people to take our bloods?  We make the bloods… and then we give money to people who steal our bloods?  Also, I lost my LoTRs Ring.  Which is pretty much the saddest thing ever.  I ordered another one (goodbye 80$), but it doesn’t fit like the old one did.  I am crushed.

Episode 388 – Cat Snatchers

I have a cold.  Rather, a cold was forced upon me.  Having something indicates some degree of wantedness, whereas, one does not want a cold.  Cold’s are displeasing to even the most gentle soul.  They are humorless, unfeeling, and altogether a most inhospitable guest.  I think I shall have a bit of tea and ask my objectionable guest to piss off.

Episode 387 – Shoot It Thru the Roof

So, I’m getting married o_O  Yes, you read correctly.   Someone was unintelligent (or maybe just brave enough) to ask me to marry them, and I said yes… after the third time they asked… because I didn’t know they were serious… because who, in any state of right-mindedness, would want to spend the REST OF THEIR LIFE with me.  Poor Jacob.  Send him your love.
