For anyone who has lost track, today is December 30. We are so so so close to the end of 2020, and Heather shares some of the highlights of the year. We take a brief look back in time at the innocent days of January, and take a moment to reflect on all we have learned this year. We give ourselves kudos for providing job security for mental health providers, and we also make plans for opening a new business in 2021: a super-fun, heavily-themed karaoke car wash.
We struggle to make our sugar-plum-ridden minds compute toilet paper math, which was probably a bad decision considering we had already begun toasting to the end of the year with some crappy wine that Chryssy bought by accident.
Usually, Heather likes to end the show with something uplifting and inspirational, but in this case she reveals that Nostradamus has predicted a zombie apocalypse and killer comets for 2021. So stay tuned for that.
Until next time...
We have finally made it to Christmas Day, and Heather would like to celebrate with a nap. But, since she still has work to do, instead she indulges her closet-historian self with peeks into why we do what we do at Christmastime. We talk about the history of mistletoe, caroling, Christmas trees, tinsel, and more, all punctuated with some of Heather's knee-slapper Dad jokes, to which Chryssy responds appropriately, once again proving that Chryssy and Heather are destined by the universe to be friends.
And, Heather gets schooled on great movie sequels and manages to work in various poo references. There is something for everyone!
Until next time.....
The end of the year is nigh and we’re prepping to prep. We’re thinking about thinking about things. We’re dipping our toes in the idea of reclaiming good things in 2021.
Today also happens to be Book Club Day, and we talk about Cheryl Strayed’s Wild, and the impact it had on Chryssy.
Oprah helped us out with a few of the questions. And you can find even more here: http://www.oprah.com/oprahsbookclub/wild-by-cheryl-strayed-reading-group-guide/3
Listen in to be part of the discussion and to learn a little about our next book and how we chose it. It’s Calypso by David Sedaris.
Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook, where you can see the Christmas outfits we adorned today on the Live Replay.
Until next time!
Heather has a heartfelt thank you to her husband for her undying support as she grows out her hair. It's a difficult time for her and her family and she is thankful for their support and understanding while she is emotional.
If you need Heather on Wednesdays at 3pm, she will be busy with her Rockette dance lessons. Find out how you can join her.
If you still have some Christmas shopping to do, consider some butt butter. It's magical. Also, spend some time watching sequels to Christmas movies. She can especially recommend Christmas Chronicles 2, which Chryssy's kids should watch to supplement their religious education.
Have you told your kids the truth about Santa? He's real, just so you know. We encourage you to tell your children the lore of St. Nick as you gaze at the Christmas star on December 21.
And until next time.....
Hello, friends! We find ourselves here, at the end of 2020 – and everyone still has plenty to argue and be righteous about!
We talk about a local garden center in Tallahassee called Esposito’s, and a decision they made that led to the perfect blend between cancel culture and COVID Christmas changes. Oh, and Chryssy sings about the store.
Speaking of COVID Christmas changes, how’s it affecting you? The ladies talk about how it’s affecting them and some of their friends.
The holidays are upon us, so we kept it pretty quick and were sure to end it with a lovely, positive poem. Stay until the end to hear some words that might lift you up as you head into the second half of your week.
Until next time!
Listen in to learn the latest on the schedules for the end of the year for all three How To Do Programs – NQT is back and headed toward the series finale, HSE has wrapped its first season, and this show is chugging along hot as ever!
Today is all about CANCEL culture. We explore what it is, where it came from, and how it’s influencing current society. The whole show is based on news articles and comments from Chryssy’s friends, many of whom ask to be kept anonymous. Because that’s how polarizing and powerful this phenomenon seems to be.
We don’t make it through all the articles we’d hoped to. But here’s a good sampling for some education.
Oh, and listen until the very end for a heck of a quote. Let us know if you know the origin.
Until next time.
Here are the many and varied links referenced on today’s show. Enjoy the deep dive!
The gals have a special guest today, one of Heather's MWEs (Mom With Experience) Sylvia Collins.
After some holiday revelry, we share stories of times when our kids made us want to vanish with embarrassment.
From f-bombs to brutal honesty... till next time...
Chryssy learned at some point that she can’t count, and the 10-episode recap is instead 12.
We have an interpretive reading and some show planning advice by Chryssy’s child, followed by Brian busting out Chryssy’s texts to him and his bid for his own show. Or at least his own segment. Listen in to find out what B’s Nutz would be about.
Our friend Ryan, husband of Fan Club President Kylene, stops in for a second and we can’t resist saying hi to him on air.
Let’s get into it with a recap. Episode 1 of the recap was so long ago we skip it – we were talking about Halloween! The team is now in full Christmas mode.
Chryssy asks a probing question akin to F###, Marry, Kill, but within your current relationship. If you have to give up Intimacy, Friendship, or the Ability to Manage a Home together, which one would you let go?
Chryssy is very proud of Brian for cracking the cover on The Gifts of Imperfection, but she secretly kind of wanted him not to have read it so she could give him a hard time.
A rousing discussion about Stormtroopers and Beskar ensues as we talk The Mandalorian. If you haven’t watched this show yet, get on it.
Brian and Heather revel in how very few people want to kill them and Chryssy pays her best fake and begrudging compliments to Heather on her many and varied 2020 accomplishments.
Brian tells us his drink-along-with-the-character habits, and Chryssy is delighted other people do this besides her. We have a quick Thanksgiving recap (that Chryssy doesn’t really want to hear) and then we remind you to listen to the Bo Walker episode.
We fail to remember what we talked about on the episode we recorded just before this, so we have nothing to recap for episode 11.
You’ve got two weeks until Book Club for Cheryl Strayed’s “Wild.” Get to reading, kids.
Until next time.
Before we jump into today's show, the gals have a congratulations to their friend Deep Voice Guy (aka Jason) who is back behind the mic at 103.1 the WOLF in Tallahassee. Well done, Jason!
Heather is struggling to decide what to do this show on, and needs Chryssy's help with choosing a show topic. She recounts her Thanksgiving of many Donald Trump sightings and her recent adoption into a new family.
She recommends continuing to strength train even when you don't want to, and reveals some research that might change the way you look at exercise.
Heather was intrigued to learn about who she thought was the first woman to play college football, until she learned that she wasn't actually the first, and there has been a whole legion of women in college football.
And, Heather is wowed by the idea of astronauts littering outer space with their dirty laundry, and shares some behind the scenes information about skin care and toilets in space.
Until next time..
