Episode 400 – Freaking 400

I know I normally babble here about my week or my fingernail polish or what I’m making for dinner (it was great, i bit it all off… maybe quiche?), but this is episode four-freaking-hundred of my favorite thing on earth!  Hanging out with you guys, chatting with Stephen, and forgetting what we talked about 4 seconds after the show ends so that when someone asks us what the show was about this week, Stephen and I blankly stare at each other until everyone is uncomfortable and then we move on.

Thank you for hanging out with us on this show, on IG and SC, at cons, and via text.  Thank you for making us shirts and art, sending us cards and bits and tips, and buying us drinks!  Thank you for amazing conversations, ragging on our Mage-Tanking, and always showing up.  You guys are fantastic and we loves you so many much!

Factoid of the Week:
New experiences really do seem to be longer in the memory than familiar ones. It’s called the “oddball effect“, and it seems to be why time feels like it’s going faster as you get older – because more stuff is familiar to you.

Episode 399 – What What Up Your Butt

I like putting food on my face.  It has its benefits.  I decided to branch out and make my own recipe of face mask today.  This was a mistake.  I have regrets.  I put cinnamon, milk (parents left it in my fridge and I’m not going to drink it, so I might as well wear it), turmeric, honey, and nutmeg.  My face now feels like I have an army of fire ants straight out of hell marching across Mordor.  Please make the pain stop.  Send help.

Episode 398 – Pumpkin Spice Podcast

I cooked my first meal in the new house!  I made a bigger mess!  I should just accept that eating out every night is going to make me a better person because I don’t have to grocery shop, create some sort of edible nourishment, clean up dishes, or think much past, “How far is Sassol from my house?”  I am now hungry.  I want hummus.  Think about what you guys have done!

Episode 397 – I Hate Painting

Guys, painting is the biggest crock of crap ever.  Why can’t they just make sheetrock come in colors?  Or make our walls plastic that can be tinted?  Or video screens that can put whatever your heart so desires up on the walls?  Why the crap do we use heavy-arse, lame, paint absorbing drywall?  Seriously, there has to be a better way.  I now understand why people put up wallpaper.

Episode 396 – Thrusting Into Place

Guys!  I just realized that I’ve only eat once today.  I am now incredibly hungry.  However, that we are moving, so everything has been packed and we haven’t gone grocery shopping in two weeks.  Actually, if I’m honest, it’s been more like a month.  There’s a frozen pizza down there… But is now 11 PM.  Don’t think that would be healthy.  I’m going to go make it.

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 🙂
