I want to open apple tv. I have to say open. Hd my to. If i say open apple tv then it doesn't work is their way. I change this to just say open apple.

The first idea is just simply renaming the port. That's a great idea. And if that works. Hey problem solved the other option and this is from patrick doyle. He says make a routine. And that's the idea that sort of came to mind for me. I am a routine is basically the ability to create a custom phrase that you can say and unlike lexi can respond to it in a certain way so it's all done through the lexi app and in this case. If i'm understanding the question correctly what you would do is you would create a routine that is triggered by that phrase so in this case open apple.

Nutrition for gravel cycling with Kristen Arnold
"This week on podcast. We've got sports nutritionists and professional cyclists. Kristen arnold kirsten has a masters degree in science and human nutrition from ohio. State university is a usa level to cycling coach with source endurance. End racist professionally with the butcher box racing team. I've always got a million questions about nutrition and it certainly a topic. That's coming up in the new ridership for them. Kirsten helps us break down. What to think about eating the week before an event during an event and after an event i thought it'd be useful to think about it in that context just because a lot of us these big events. One hundred miler. That's a big unusual ride for us. We're not doing that every month in are cycling career. We're just kind of peaking for something. That is really extreme in terms of what our body is used to. So it's important to kind of think about that not only in your physical preparation but also nutrition and hydration. Christine does a great job of breaking down the things you should be thinking about before the event during the event to give yourself the best chance for success. She's got some fantastic takeaways for us. All and a few little tricks that i hadn't thought about so. I hope you enjoyed this episode. Let's jump right in kristen. Welcome to the show. Thanks for having me craig. I'm excited to get into the topic of nutrition with you. But i always like to set the stage for the listener to get a little bit more of an understanding about your background. Since you've got a background both professionally. Nutritionist but also as a professional cyclist once you give us a little bit of both okay So i kind of make my living in three different ways right now and I went to school for nutrition. So i have an undergraduate degree and dietetic and then got my registered dietitian or credential Ended up getting my masters of science and human nutrition then became a certified specialist sports dietetic. So i was in school for eight years Nutrition and So open my private practice. Sports died headaches. Company in twenty fourteen and then started coaching Cycling in sixteen hour with source endurance. And i've been reading on the professional road circuit and twenty sixteen and now rethink for butcher. Box pro cycling. Wow that keeps you busy. Yeah we've had a couple episodes recently where we've touched on things that i would fall in the realm of nutrition and i was excited when we connected just to bring you on board and talk from the athlete's perspective about how my listeners might improve their overall nutrition nutrition and such because such a massive field and something that everybody needs to spend time thinking about and integrating into their lives. I thought we would just think about it from the perspective of an athlete. Who may be only doing a handful of events a year so not a professional cyclist by any means but someone who's peaking for an event that may be way out of the ordinary for them so think about like a two hundred mile gravel race an sp t gravel or amid south gravel event. So let's try to break down the conversation by starting. You know if you have one of those big peaks senior year. How should you be approaching it. Nutritionally in the week leading up. And then how should you be approaching your nutrition during the event. Okay all right so we're gonna talk about the week before and the day of a big event There is some research to show that what people call carb loading is effective. And what this means is that you are eating High proportion of your calories up to seven to ten grams per kilogram body weight of carbohydrates per day. and what's that doing. it is super saturating or glycogen stores so for endurance athletes especially cyclists with these long gravel event Even though a lot of the time you'll be below threshold the majority of the type of effort. You're going to be doing it. Relies on glycogen and so the main goal with Going into the event to make sure that those lijun thursday or as full as possible if not fuller than they normally are And then that also goes for hydration so ulta making sure that we have adequate hydration stores and meeting knows with fluid and electrolyte so short version of that is to Continuously e carbohydrate rich foods throughout the day for up to a week before the event and then also making sure to hydrate well with electrolytes every day consistently throughout the day.

6 Months Sober
"Worked super hard for it. Here is Christine. Hey Christine, thank you so much for coming on and doing this recording with me. I love it when I get to have quote-unquote real people come on the ship. Oh, so that's why don't you just take a minute and tell everybody a little bit about yourself and a little bit of your story. Sure. I'm Christine and I've been working with you for about six months now, I think and I've been struggling with alcohol for well, it became problematic. I should say from 2014 and then I spent the next several years trying to be sober doing it my own way and you know as we all know you you try to limit it to the weekends. You try to limit it to when you go out you try all sorts of things and it just doesn't really pan out that well because you're a master at tricking yourself into believing you can actually handle it and then in 2017, it kind of started to become problematic people around me. Started to point out to me that I was drinking too much not necessarily peripheral people but family Etc and it led to a couple of cents of the hospital. I did a couple of detox bath is I did IOP. But again, it was very much. I felt that it was very much a outside world trying to control me and I just continued it anyway in certain age. So before 90 days I was over for 60 days and every time a big event or in my mind a big event kind of threw me into screw this I'm going to try to just go back to handle myself then finally in October 2019. I decided mainly because I was put through an ultimatum to go to rehab and it's a 30-day treatment. I hated the word rehab. I think it's you know has connotations. But anyway, I went it was in October nineteen and I went there and I thought We ended up enjoying it a lot. It's very much getting you to surrender. And again, I had a very hard problem. I showed up very mentally or my name is strong saying look just hand me the solution. I understand what the problem is. I just need to fix this. What's the recipe what I need to do and nobody could really do that or I guess that's not how it works, but nobody handed me the recipe. So I went through the program and they wouldn't get you to schedule a day ahead and it just drove my control freak side mad, but I went through the program. I did it wrong. I enjoyed it. I even got slightly spiritual and I got out and I felt really good the problem when you get out of a rehab or a program like that is that you've been completely isolated from The Real World, but you go back to the world where basically all your problems or all the perceived problems exist. So you just get dumped right back into this whole world where birth Of you to drink so to speak right now. We can all discuss what actually drives you to drink but that's your perception and I've spoken to a lot of people that come out of rehab that that that's the the world right you go back into like nothing has happened and you your surroundings whoever knows about your drinking or or using these kind of thinking. Oh now she's fixed. So let's just go on with everything, you know, it kind of start, you know, you can move the alcohol away, which is fine. Some people can do some sort of effort around you but you essentially go back to your old environment, which I have a strong will so for a long time. So I would think I was sober 90 days including the 30 days at Mountainside.

The Last Four Years, The Last Five Decades (with Rebecca Traister)
"Idea for a future radio story. Today, is January twentieth. Two Thousand Sixteen. Donald Trump was just inaugurated. That was me four years ago I wanted to capture my fears and concerns about trump's presidency. So I hopped in the recording studio my old job recorded a little audio time capsule. I've kept this file on my computer for four years. Didn't listen to it until recently. So many people in this country are so excited about trump. Is can't believe I could disagree with this many people. Innocent innocent extremely privileged belief. But I guess that's why I wanted to ask you avery of the future. You who have lived through one term of. The trump presidency. So weird just a few questions. So I recorded fifteen minutes of questions about the state of the country for my future self, which is to say me. Currently. To answer did he build a wall around Mexico or did he try Oh man I mean yeah. He's still trying like actively according to customs and Border Protection, there's been three hundred, seventy, one miles of new wall completed but there's still a lot more to go. So we'll see is marijuana legal. Depends on the state you live in, but it's fully legal in eleven of them. So yeah. Yes or no Legal. Well, no. It could be. There were a bunch of other questions that I won't bore you with because I. Realize I can't actually answer most of the questions from my past self. Like they're all kind of complicated and still in process and it turns out a lot of the rights I was worrying about four years ago are still very much under threat now. Including the issue that I was most frightened about. On Donald Trump's inauguration day. The very first question I asked to my future self. Was this one. Are Abortions illegal. Did HE DE-FUND PLANNED PARENTHOOD? Of course I, know abortions are still legal for now the law of the land upholds Roe v Wade. Although I'm not sure I really understood how complicated the answer to this question actually was. And is especially now that trump has appointed three supreme court justices. So I want to start asking you that big question. Are Abortions illegal. Well, yeah. They are legal right now for some people, they have been inaccessible to millions more preceding trump's inauguration. Rebecca Tracer is a writer at large for New York magazine and the cut. So where we are right now is that we're closer to abortions being illegal than we've been in my life time nominated by President Reagan and serving thirty years on the court. He was often the crucial swing vote you know Anthony Kennedy's retirement breath Kavanagh's confirmation, and here today not because I want to be. Terrified riding completely over the testimony of Christine Lousy Ford I. Do not believe that these charges can barely per bed judge cabin from serving on the court Susan Collins vote for breakfast all these things on a court. level. were sort of big publicly covered wakeup calls and there has been women in the streets. Right there have been women and men in the streets there have been people in the streets. Four years into Donald, trump being president the like. The reality of that is hitting a lot of people hard. But one of the ways that we got to this point is that the inaccessibility and the project of making abortion illegal. Didn't hit anybody hard enough. Inaccessibility isn't just recent. It's now it happens now around the country for millions of women for whom enough barriers have been put in place that that role might as well not exist because it actually doesn't serve as a barrier. It doesn't serve as a protection of their right to get the care that they need. So there are states. In the country where the the laws are so prohibitive where there have already been people jailed for abortion.

Resilient Leadership in Anxious and Uncertain Times
"Welcome to extraordinary women radio Christine. I am so excited to have you join me today. I know this is going to be so much fun. You and I are long long time Pals and I am just thrilled to have you hear me to thank you for having me. Yeah, and you've got so many interesting stories. I know you're going to be sharing with us today. We we've talked a little bit about this direction that we're going to go in and and I know that you were sitting in meditation this week actually thinking about you know, what is it that wants the flow through you and this week on this conversation and I love first of all you were doing that because that's there's so much Beauty and stopping & pausing and listening to that inner wisdom that's there for us to find jobs then being able to hear Hear that message that that bubbles up and I know you and I have had many many conversations about this and what I know it came up for you was accepting when it's time to Pivot off and I love this first of all, and it's it's funny because any of my listeners are going to go wait a minute you've been talking about it's not about the pivot and sometimes it's not about a pivot in this crazy or sometimes. We really have to stand in our truths and and who we are and just show up and serve our our people and at the same time there's definitely times and places. Where would we need to Pivot? And I know that's a theme that has been showing up for you for multiple years in different ways. You've been very courageous and brave and how you should up in your pivot should tell us a little bit. Why you think that's the topic that came it came up for you on this. Sometimes we don't know what's going to come up right part of it makes no true. Right right opening to The Unknown. So this definitely wasn't coming from you know, this song theoretical analytical part of my brain now, I will say I may have been influenced because I've been watching the NBA finals and you know, there's there's a pendant in basketball who knows that that had anything to do with the it's okay. So I'm going to add you on that because guess what I used to play basketball in high school and we had the best coach we're off we had he taught us how to Pivot and this really strong space where we when we pivot we pivot with our body and we'd hold the ball in front of us and we'd pivot which keeps you safe from them, you know, having a foul or anything like that. There's such strength in that so I'm just going to let that keep moving off of that that theme you know, and as you know in basketball, you can't pivot all the time off. Like to your point there's a time in the game when you strategically go up on you know, you always leave one foot on the ground right when you pivot right? You're not home, right? Very good. You think about like you leave that one foot and then you literally can pivot 360 degrees with a ball and I say there is wisdom in knowing when to let go off all and win to let come what needs to come into your life. And so for some reason that seems to be the overriding theme that came through Thursday. So tell us some of your I know you've got multiple stories of pivoting.

I know you've built this amazing incredible company and I'm always so proud of the work that you know, you are doing in the world. I just go look at the work you're doing and I'm very exciting. For you, but you have a you have some some big pivots you've made. Very much. So and I was thinking all the way back to 1994. So somebody do the math. You'll figure out that that was a long time ago. And at that point I was living in San Francisco that place of my dreams. I had the dream job working in Corporate America and knowing that this was I thought this is it off. This is where I'm going to be and a pivot came and that pivot brought me to Denver where I transitioned from my corporate career, which was advertising sales in the high tech magazine publishing industry.

"Had a sense of what professional buzz that's valuable to and telling stories. I interviewed people or whatever for for Joe or anything it's just like the people who also had other lives that aren't comedy are always almost always just more interesting. And have more to say than people who you know. Obviously, it's not a blanket rule, but but that's just my experience. Yeah do you oh? Sorry. I was going to jump into your IMDB and ask you feel like you know being on teams and doing you see be steph having that like arsenal of sketches mapping your, do you think that was? Really helpful in getting the job on Kroll show and getting your other writing jobs, just having a big stack of things that you've already tried. Totally I mean, yeah our was Saturday night live and for sore and that was kind of. The reason behind law teams to was just to give people stage time but to give writers and opportunity to build a packet and put things on the and so when you know I got asked us omit for snl had sketches that have been tested in front of audiences I I can't remember like Like. Or five sketches going back I can't remember honestly but like half of them were probably. What up on their. Feet already. been in admitted Internet video that I included whatever interest Scotch. So that kind of finding your voice etcetera etcetera, a super helpful especially to get to getting that job and And then from there, it's just like. You can. Include things that you. Worked on that are on the show, but you can also just be like look if you WanNa, like know what my deal is like this sketch from UCB's like me in a nutshell river and I remember to actually about the other day like in that was going back to what you're saying about like. Gender Equity in the writer's room. Like they were. I was under no like false assumptions. I knew they were looking for a woman no-one said that to me explicitly, there was like a million little cues and things that were said that should have been said but like I do remember at the theater like. There were definitely people who are more experienced than me who were quote unquote ready than I was. Male and female and. You know but it I'm the one that got it and. Part of my leg drive has been like prove that I deserved that. Not necessarily even about the specific place it was just that it was a professional job enjoying the union and getting agent I remember a friend of mine somebody said to him one of his students that I got the job because I knew abby Elliott. Which is true. But only because I had taken a UC class with her, that's how the extent of how much I knew her and she remembered my work recommended me among other people she had recommended. Somebody said to him like, Oh, well she. She, just got the job and she knows her and they and they were looking for a woman or something and my friend was like she also had like the best pack you. You'll ever read like she was wrong. Yeah. Thank. God, they said that yeah, it's. It's really it was really meet like it is true. That was one of the amazing things about being at a theater where you're putting scratches on their feet. All the time is that you are as ready as you're gonNA be, and now I understand like you're never ready you're never going to be ready always waiting for permission and just like fucking do it frank right. So. Yeah. So to answer question like absolutely like having work. So when someone says something you could hear. ME Totally. Invaluable. It's the only. Yeah, and also like the quantity of stuff you know I feel like are we say about writing pilots in specs and things like that? A pilot is a little bit more that you know it's almost as if your creativity is an iceberg and I at the top is like the most wretched terrible things. And they're always going to be rhetoric things at the top and you just need to like break them off and get to the meat of it is which is you know putting pressure on yourself that this is your first pilot or this is your first sketch packet and just like having that muscle memory built into your fingers of okay. I'm able to actually breathe in be myself on these pages for the constant question of am I doing it right and I I need you to like me and I need you to hire me but it's like when? You just have that quantity that practice whether you're doing at UC I guess can anymore New York but you know there are so many other means of forming writers groups online or you know doing things in your own way just dust the cobwebs often get to you know what's going to be great about your work I. Don't know I feel like that's the writing advice that I can see apply that only sketch pilot but you know stand up at all of it telly and working with other people is so much a part of any writing job Yaun. for tea and stuff like and so when I teach. Giving advice it's always like. Being in a writer's room a skill. As, well, and like learning. Learning. How to give notes? You you can be like the best writer in the world, but if you're not fun to work with. No. Thank you so..

"And. A It was just like insane to just look back at like where I started at UC than all of a sudden be like on this. But we really had an in-depth like discussion about that and I mean it was middle of the day. It was really hot people were probably sleeping the audience, but it was so important almost like I think for the women on the stage to have that conversation because I was really open about this and so so day of just like you were taught, there's only so many and your competition is only the other women and Katie dippled actually said this thing that like I was so grateful. In so many ways for her to say but like you know she was saying that you know Katie was really high highly regarded at you see when kind of like she was like you know the this really you know the best one writer there and everything I think she was already getting professional work and then she said that when I started at, UC be she kept hearing my name she was like, who is she like I need to know who? was like who the fuck is like owning into my territory grand right feeling and I was like I said in the moment I got. I'm so like to hear that you thought I was like. Sort of threat is so such a compliment, but also like mad isn't that so sick that like that's how we like. Yes. And so we just kind of like unpacked all this stuff. It was like super therapeutic for all of us to be like you know got these opportunities that you see and what we kind of had to go through to get them, and then of course, the Tasha who's black woman was talking about her experience which at uc be like. God there's so much going on right now with that being used to be New York is closed but it was it was really healthy and hopefully helpful for the audience to people who are just starting out see because also one more thing I'll say before I knew we'd take break is like When? You. Know any color isn't that involved anymore you see be. With organization if at all I don't really know but they would do this press conference at the beginning of every marathon, and then sometimes like heard, he knew it'd be interviewed the press about being a woman in comedy and. There was they would give answers sometimes that were just like just be funny. Just be the just be funny. That's all you need to do which a lot of us really felt like really a race like. A lot of the other stuff that you had to go through and I totally understand why they're saying like why they that was their answer but I just remember it being really Confusing to those of us that were in like. At the level that we rat. Working freshly like. I'm so grateful that even if it doesn't come from those two women. That there that people have really dug into like talking about the extra stuff that people who aren't white men have to deal with. And you mean the like. So yes when I think about like recommending you see be recommending comedy. Theater people. Looking back I'm like Oh my God like I recommended UCB to so many women in like. Like what was I sending them into or like you know some people of color like. What was there? You know the experience was going to be so like different than mine. Kind of regret. Regret but. We'll make. Saying like people were asking, how do you get in comedy how you do this phone and I was like I don't know the path where like your uncle does this job? So he gets you job as a PA like I don't know that at all on was I found a community. I performed all the time I wrote all the time I taught. I took classes and you one thing led to another and I got tired of. So do that, and then like now like Oh God, what was I sending people into? Now it's totally not your fault and like Ali said it, it is the system and. I really really hard I did stand up for ten years starting in College of an performed at UC be New York, a couple times that was really fun. I mainly did la and. Over like when I was first starting out getting intro to the stage by the MC as like the lovely rest got and at first thinking that was such a compliment and then. Like slowly starting to pick it apart and go like. Feels very gendered in a way and ensure like maybe my presence hinges more lovely because I'm. Elliot, I call each other a Pasi positive. Hers and and whatever. But it it to me made me feel like you know bringing feminism in in a around that made me go. Oh in funny for a woman or although there that you've asked yourself. It's we're getting into the heavy so. I. Love it back. All right. So let's take a quick break and during our break I, WanNa make sure that everybody is following Christine although she told us off air that she has not been tweeting lately, which honestly is a very good.

This is all about you. So you can take this time to talk about whatever the hell you want, but we just want to get to know you in your background and all the amazing projects that you've worked on. Usually we like to start where you came from and sort of what those early inklings were to you knowing that you wanted to be a comedy writer Anywhere that you WANNA start talking about what that looked like for you. Sure. I've been writing professionally for about. Ten years or so my officials start was like kind of a upright citizens brigade world but to answer questions I I grew up in Philadelphia and family of four kids to parents and with a Catholic school very Catholic upbringing all girls Catholic. High school all that stuff and I think that like my family my especially my extended family that of my dad's. Irish. Side we just so dry and funny. And they say like. The funniest thing you've ever heard your life without even registering on their face. They said something funny and like just just making fun of each other and kind of very dry humor and I always just. Thought that was so if you could do that if you could just. That was just a skill. I always wanted to have the people were saying the funniest things were made two aunts, my dad's tour sisters and. Just like completely under the radar just like. zigging their brothers in like the best way. And so. At home I was like, you know it's like a big family a lot going on. And so I was. Funny but not in like a, let me put on a wig and do a funny dance type funny that. But yeah I just remember like. Recognizing that and saying a few things that. People. Laughed at. I remember I feel like I told her story years ago on a different podcast but. I don't want hear it good because I. From Attic. Actually I really hope it was like it was like when people all started first getting their their. podcasts like everyone had one and got I regret doing it. Anyway I might not even told the story, but it was like I was in fifth or sixth grade and. We. Had right sentences you and you're like learning vocabulary words in. It's like use it in a sentence and for whatever reason I was feeling like goofy day and I was goofy at home in a way that I wasn't at school because I was such a good student and good grossest super obedient like my overriding thing was obedience in terms of not wanting to cause a stir and not wanting to get in trouble and. All that and. I like I don't know it was feeling funny and I brought like funny sentences. With, the words I'm sure they're all totally perfectly grammatically correct and. Worth or accurately, but they were just a little bit. Weird and I remember like sticking they were funny in teacher and I was like the best seat I got hundreds on everything I was everybody. Teacher's pet with the teacher called me out into the hallway and accused me of. Having someone else right the sentences for me while because they were. LIKE NOT BE Seated definitely. Not mean that. It was like if you felt that way in that moment of like actually. I only felt shame and embarrassment. This just because the teacher was like a teacher pulled me into the hallway that was already like she could have said like Oh shave your head and I would have done it because I was so like Oh God. Do Rock, the boat rock, the boat. I mean Ali and I are both Lisa's. You're in good company when it comes to that. Rules in order in getting an A. and all that I feel like we both ascribe to at a young age. I've heard lots of theories about why that is actually was when I was working a couple of years ago on the president show. The Peter. Gross is the guy that plays Mike Pence on the show, and so he and I were show runners by the end of the show and. I remember he said something to me once about like. Lisa Simpson and how so many of the women that he's worked with? Professionally as Many of the comedy writers have been like Lisa Simpson's. He's like the men kind of like flow by, but the women have had like to work like three times as hard. It'd be organized into our work and all that stuff that it's like an interesting observation in an area looking back and I was like that's totally Right, like you can't afford to to not do that kind of thing, but I've definitely been slipping and.

We took the television set out when they were little. Because it became clear that We couldn't monitor what they were watching. So we just I remember taking a television out physically. It was that small and I and I put it in a barn across the road uncovered it with a blank. Wait a minute your. Tv CAREER STARTED IN THE EIGHTY S. Right or so weren't mean.

"Whoever came up with that idiom should have been more specific. The kerfuffle centered around the paper's longstanding advice column. Ask Aunt Alice. But after thirty years of no complaints. Alice's record was blighted. On April twenty-seventh by careless features editor who inadvertently swapped advice for two unlucky letter writers the I only identified by her pseudonym desperately seeking shelter had written in about a problem she had encountered with the freshly adopted shelter dog. The dog had been causing trouble at home chewing up furniture scaring their neighbors children and otherwise terrorizing the letter writers family. What was the moral thing to do? According to Aunt Alice the only thing that could be done was to put on a fresh face of makeup. Get a blow out and try to remember what made her sexy to him. In the first place confused readers might question why aunt? Alice suggested dressing up for a troubled dog. But this is of course because this response was meant for the second letter writer of the week who was writing about what to do about a husband with a wandering eye to this reader and Alice suggested daily treats as a reward for good behavior or a swift visit back to a shelter even if the offender was eventually put to sleep for good. The goof only appeared in the physical copies of the paper and the paper swiftly apologized in the correction the following morning but one hopes the damage was done. Perhaps the wife with the cheating husband really should've left her husband. And who knows maybe a nice dress once in a while really would have improved the dog's behavior and Alice screws up advice for a dog and a marriage. You're next story of a news. No no comes from Amy Dickinson. An actual advice columnists. This is a tough time for newspapers. I mean leaving your house to pick up something of an unknown origin which has been handled by unseen hands and then to carry that thing into the house and pass it around to family members but still newspapers are trying trying to win over younger readers when staple is the spot. The difference feature you know two photographs or drawings that contain tiny differences and the reader has to spot them. It's really a throwback to a simpler time when people didn't go out much family spent a lot of time together playing games and baking sour dough bread. The time exactly like this time come to think of it so pity the Baltimore Sun from fells point to Federal Hill Riverside and inner harbor. Readers picked up last Sunday's paper and could not spot the difference in the spot. The difference feature to the naked eye. The two pictures of a boy brushing his teeth looked exactly the same because they were exactly the same spot. The difference had one job and much like these strategic national stockpile. It did not deliver this week. The Baltimore Sun had to notify readers correction the images in these spot. The difference feature in the Sunday editions were mistakenly the same image and not in fact. Different the Baltimore. Sun regrets the error. A spot the difference photo game with two identical photos. Your last story of the media mess up comes from Alonzo Boden the Ames. Iowa registered received a simple order from the regional fried chicken place Klux Chicken. A simple atwood a promo coupon for twelve chicken nuggets. Two dollars for the first week of spring are as they like to call him Klux Nuggets. Somebody didn't proof. Read the work. So the register printed sixty thousand coupons offering one hundred twenty nuggets for two dollars and Hungary islands lined up in front of the store before it even opened. Bob Read the manager knew. He had to honor coupons but he also knew he didn't have enough chicken to sell a hundred twenty nuggets for two dollars and stay in business. Bobby wanted FRY cooks. Had A simple idea. Make the nuggets smaller. Bobby said he could run chicken through the meat grinder and get long small round strips of chicken similar to straws then cut those into small bits and fry them. Bobby showed how he could get as many as two hundred tiny morsels out of a single breast and so was born. The chicken duck one quarter inch bites of delicious fresh chicken and one hundred. Twenty of them for two dollars was not only an attractive price. It was actually profitable. The chicken dots were a huge hit. Manager Bob Reid is now planning to expand to multiple locations and bobby to FRY. Cook is now Klux. Shefty cuisine. No word on the fate of the coupon man over at the Ames register all right. I want a chicken dot so bad right now actually sent a really good so here are your choices. June from Joachim Booster.

We'd have great. New rivalries that have say mets versus dodgers. We'd have Tampa Bay versus whatever that other team in Florida is new rules And the League's will mean that players won't have to travel so far from home they'll be able to spend every night back at their own homes.

"Basis. One is the right to private life and the other <hes> was sev- right to to marry because both wanted to marry in terms of their acquired gender what changed to heterosexually so so mark crease a lovely man if he was going to marry a toll he wanted to marry a woman caroline causey a beautiful model and tv hostess. If she wanted to marry about she was engaged to marry a man on the yukon. Hello they had reasons valid reasons to go all out of european caught fume right suppress reported it and although both of them lost they started a conversation shen and god's people who were interested in civil liberties entrusted people like us alex carlile who those days was the liberal booth democrats home affairs spokesman and he in fact almost too to meet mark and any friends of his and they went to to meet him him in parliament and he encouraged them to set up an activist campaign so that was the point in time in nineteen ninety-two where suddenly transpeople had an activist activists campaign there was something we could do was something we could work on and a we had a lever we could use the law because unlike everybody else the law aw doesn't do fake news doesn't do hysteria. It's interested in the facts and the facts in our case. We're very much on our side. It was was a terrible injustice so we could keep going back to the courts with different examples of people being discriminated or put out of work and they would listen and now favor the right level which they did then government had to do something so in nineteen ninety six the european court of justice this ruled that it was sex discrimination to dismiss somebody because they were were undergoing or had undergone gender reassignment that meant that the new labor government in nineteen ninety-seven had to do something about it and as a result of that we got the first legislation to protect trans writes out of it was really important for you to get involved in the maximum. I got involved in nine hundred ninety three so i was really at the heart of that and seeing how we <music> how we move this forward and how exploited come on more than concern you've got an m._b._a. Yeah sometimes i look at that at the top of the stairs and nothing yeah okay. I'm official announced for your campaigning work. It was it was <hes> it was warded because my colleagues and i then got very closely involved with civil servants and ministers to help craft the gender recognition bill and <hes> for a couple of years at at the beginning of the noughties and job really was to make sure that the government could get it through parliament without getting scratch on them <hes> and so oh. I think a grateful government and grateful queen decided this award and my colleague steven wetzel he had an o._b. As well and we accepted those because we cassia instinct is to say well. This is what's <hes> empire in. It and it's bad connotations bucked. I remember when angela mason who one of the first chief executives of a stone wall was awarded it was obi day a nevada about one thousand nine hundred ninety nine and i remember that he was all over the the b._b._c. the whole day and all over the press and and i thought yeah actually this is the mark that's what she did was worth doing. It was important mattered. People talk about the issues again so and so in stephen and i deciding to accept our owners. It wasn't really a farrar egos. It was sa- societe okay well. If we accept these we are actually acknowledging. Actually and people are actually able to see that people who devoted their spare time to the right solve this tiny group of people. You know that was something that was worth doing and was worth honoring while so we have come a long. Why haven't worry but i think it's fair to say the still a long way to go for trans rights in this country. Where do you think the company should be focused on what you think what should change for transpeople after after the gender recognition act we did it. We did actually sort of step back and say well here. We were totally focused on that. What on earth do we do now. <hes> <hes> and it took us a while to work out and we sort of made a little list well. There's still some legislation to sort out because it was incomplete. We were still vulnerable in places assist so that's one thing the way that the press reports transpeople and media features transpeople. That's a big important issue and the other one was <hes> the elephant in the room which was the all our interactions with the n._h._s. and with doctors in general were complete disaster area area so we needed to work on that as well so the first few years after the a gender recognition act we we'd sort of pushed on those things and then i think think when did we reach the end of our personal tether. I've had already burned out once and i was feeling gonna burn out again. We started to fall out with each other and i felt by about two thousand seven stroke kate's that it was time to let young people have ago 'cause we were by then. We were now fifties. We retired ourselves out and actually we also want to have lives so i actually made it known that i wanted to step step down and retire and i wanted a new generation to come along for just one thing. Even though i've grown so much over the years getting awards does help with you your self esteem. I'm still that kid who grew up in a world that thought that what i was this was dirty and vicky and i think that affects how you approach how vigorously you can demand full equality whereas young people they grown up with the rights that we'd one for them. They don't have any of that baggage they actually. Let's see that. I deserve this stuff. Young people are far more in your face. Young people are amazing onto also autho frigging polite springs minassian smell also question really unsure you know all these rights have been worn is berlin but obviously still difficult colt to accept your gender sometimes and people growing up in difficult families in difficult situations. What word of advice would you give to a young person struggling and trying to come to terms with their gender identity and not failing able to to speak out. Oh goodness while i. I guess i say look at my own life. It didn't and have the best of beginnings but look ended up the you can be the person that you're destined to be but don't feel that it all has to happen straight away or take your time and i know that's a very difficult thing to say to young person but actually spending time like i did to to actually organiz my employment so that i wasn't going to become destitute y- to plan okay i'm going to do this. What are the steps. I need twitches project and along the way of course learn about your own history <hes> well as well aw i was going to bring it in any way chris dot org books are available. We'll certainly start with this one britain before creating it had never been a book that could just iman place. Tell a trans person or their family or their allies what we've been through that story. I just told you and i think it's an inspiring story because it's full of so many really good role models of people who've grown up at each stage each of that and i think if you read that then i think you'll know how to manage your own transition and this this really exciting journey because i think the message of hope would be the you might think of being trans is being a bit of obama. You know it's a bad and to be to be dealt but actually it isn't because we will get to do something that the vast majority of human beings never get to do your most most human beings get issued agenda when they're when they're born and they're supposed to stick with that so they ll grow up they live their entire life experiencing only half of what it is to be a human being now. I didn't much enjoy experiencing the other half. Although it's great to have spent some mm time in the boys showers 'cause i learned a lot from that but sir and i had the perfect disguise i think i understand gender jonah level the i guess other people may not do because of that experience seeing it from both sides and there's so many layers to that we could do an entire other podcasts to it but as a result and because of the person it's made me struggling through hard times finding resources finding finding and being surprised by what i could do. I would never trade it. People might say wouldn't you pass wish that you'd been just been born and go and grown up and down the usual stuff well yeah. That's that's one way of living alive. I won't decry it because that's what half the population gets to do but i've actually thought i'd been handed a really bad hand but actually it's turned out to be such an exciting journey of discovery very i'm a better person than i could ever have been had i not been challenged in this way beautifully optimistic and positive words and so thank you so much for tokens coming out stories christine burns m._b._a. Thank you and get the book and author of trans britain transparent uh-huh.

"It was an opportunity see around in my head you know when you've got near worm out same same sort of thing and i'd say yeah. I'm gonna go there this wednesday. An untold people was big. Group initially wasn't but it grew so i remember towards the beginning of the eighties. I think they used to be about thirty. People there on. This isn't relevant to your story but i'm just interested in other people might be how how many were people that were born all the identified as female and how many were around. You've got to distinguish between people who went to that group and what the community might be because because justice desires tend to think. I'm not sure whether this group is for me because the group was dominated by people who just cross stressed once a week and it was their relaxation accusation and they sat around and they talk about steam engines and computers which is a different thing but i as i've written in my book trance trance britain transsexual people with such a small community. That's biggest can't be choosers. We didn't have are group's but it must be nice to even have that safe space where you could trust as a woman unbearable buy yes that must have been caught revelation for really it. It was and i and i actually haven't home to me because one of the things you might think to yourself yourself as well. Maybe i could just be a cross dresser can contain it to the occasional evening and then put it away in a box and the that's what's that that will be enough and that won't mean the potential of losing my friends losing my job losing everything <hes> what you thought you expect otherwise otherwise i was in a research student in manchester in the mid seventies us enjoying myself. I was producing a radio show for radio manchester. I i was doing my research. I liked the people i worked with but i didn't think anybody would accept me if i she said you know i'm going to transition very me woman so what changed because at some point you obviously did well in nineteen seventy six. I came very close to the first attempt to transition permanently. I actually found found a doctor and quite scarily. The doctor just said yeah. We think you'll transsexual and there's somebody i can refer you to come back next as we can. Tell me if you want me to do that and that was so scary that i actually gave up my p._h._d. Study and ran away effectively. Oh because someone giving you the it meant facing up toward the prospects. I'm pretty sure what prospects would be that. You know that i wouldn't be able to continue. Can you being a research student or go onto a lecturer i wouldn't <hes> be allowed near a microphone on the b._b._c. again on all those things things and so in a way actually make became a self fulfilling prophecy because ran away from all of them anyway page and then transitioned insights it was so it was just it having once you've sort of acknowledged yourself much the this is what you are then you put it back in the bulk those combined the only going away was an act of desperation saying to myself. I'll get a job in industry and i'll make another start and we'll have no more of this. He ran away. What did you go. I got a job with a computer company called international computers. His mother went join them. As writing courses and books down in windsor didn't stay very long because it was <hes>. It was very lonely. Only there even are surrounded by colleagues and so i ended up managing to engineer within the same company to come back to manchester so i could be near the people are left. So at what point did you admit it to yourself and then actually tell other people. This is what we do. The next stage was. I got so desperate that i actually told my parents again. I was trying to sort of cut off my lines of escape from myself. <hes> so i got very drunk one night about three o'clock in the morning i rang my parents and and <hes> i was again i res. I always seem to do this stuff kneeling on the carpet with the phone in front of me and my father answered the phone and i said ah i gotta tell you i want. I want to be a girl. I want to be a woman. I think i love that looking back. You said you better speak to your mother so she came on the phone and what she said to me as always stuck with me. She said darling that we made you own. Whatever you all will love you and it is an. I actually become quite distanced from my parents. I don't know whether that was because i was angry with them for the perceiving that they would be a baria that because i thought if i come out 'cause that moment on that phone call i thought about to lose my parents you know am i have seen them see 'cause that happens so often to people <hes> but so that's a mark my desperation that i actually felt comes to the point that i was actually prepared to lose my parents. How old were you at the stage. <hes> i'm just trying to think that one through who i think that was around about nineteen eighty-two so i was just under thirty gosh so you had waited a long time because i'm very good. Sorta tried to distract myself i was i worked very hard. I had these mitigating ways of <hes> of of trying to pretend tended was just something i could handle detects up to anything they did because i went down to see them. <hes> they lived in ken still <hes> <hes> they met me staying and i remember we said spent the evening <hes> sitting having drinks and chatting and talking about everything amum just immediately <unk> clicked into this my daughter they were fat credibly good at that i'd completely misread them so they never mistreated to do after the because i'd i just assumed from things that you pick up from listening to what they say when they see something on television or what they read in the papers ooh that they would disapprove and because they had been disapproving about other things not about me but they certainly disapproved disapproved of things that my older sister done so i just expected that that was gonna be the monarch i don't know whether from from that experience with my sister they'd sort of learned and thought that we should we should just loosen up a bit in some respect from and even today law parents struggling miss gender that ah i think yeah they they they had to work to try and get themselves some information. My mum was proud of the number of local police that she could go cultivators friends so she went to see a local sergeant and she told him and he explained it all to her and her guessing it from an official official. She looked up to really <hes>. Yes this go sergeant okay. That's okay. This is has a name is a condition and the sergeant able somehow rally if if he'd said god say hold them there until i get the handcuffs been different. So did you ever come out at work then they started planning for that again. I thought that the chances were that's. My colleagues wouldn't know what to what to do with me. <hes> so i mood changed my work to being self employed a such a an i._t. Consultancy if my own on the basis i couldn't sack myself clever and <unk>. I set about making myself so essential to my clients. They would have to think twice three times about just letting me go so actually when i did finally take the the final step saying okay. This is on this particular day. I'm going to be christine forever that they had actually had a company meeting. One of the clients and managing director told the staff look this is happening to this person and we are going to accept her and if anybody has any trouble with that you come and see me so i i have been incredibly fortunate richner over the years that all the all the terrible things i knew could happen didn't happen and invite quite the reverse. I've been charitably privileged and having been associated with people who have acted like the grownups. It's very interesting isn't it. It's so different to coming out with o._j. Obey in the you know. You really plans for it didn't you. You knew that there was one day where your name your gender gone and you were going to present this christine and that was it and you sort of you plan for that for years as well. It's it's you cannot avoid coming out. When you're trans early calls unless you move overnight then people are going to know that something has changed. I think you can succeed in being gay or lesbian for a very long time without telling your colleagues and in fact i know that in in in in companies that i dealt with you know as soon as you you know christine's trans i would have the the gays and lesbians wins in that company coming in coming in buttonholing me that friend <hes> and they weren't out but so in the sense they were observing serving me with really real interest to see how their colleagues so interesting that you all came to still be out because i know certainly a lot of trans people is just all about passing and they won't acknowledge the past gender and they don't necessarily want to talk about it. But why did you see things. I i tried that i was very fortunate alternate in the very quickly i was able to to pass and go go invisible and <hes> in a line of work whereas constantly meeting new clients <hes> in a way it was simpler and it was simply for my for my big clients who was sometimes recommending me to just your let's all just accept christina's genus christine and please don't bring it up because that i make awkward conversations for us <hes> so there was a lot of encouragement and then i was living in in a very conservative part of cheshire as well so in a way i felt it was safest to to be in what we call stealth <hes> <hes> and then number things started to happen where i realized that if somebody isn't standing doing something then it's never going to get any different. One of the characteristics of trans history is the all the way from the setting up of the very first support group in nineteen sixty six all the way through to the end of the eighties so that's about twenty five years nothing progress other than people having support groups where you could go and meet people and you could talk and you so you exchange anecdotes about how somebody had had petrol to what nothing of progress in terms of rights and society like something think. How can we change this because they didn't seem to be any maine's normally. If there's a social wrong then you might go to the press and somebody and would you take your calls while the press wasn't interested in that they got away of writing about us and it was the freaks on sunday. You could go to an m._p. But it was this was the time section twenty eight. There were no votes for m._p.'s and getting involved with with transpeople so yeah. How would you begin when everything is against you. How would you begin to change that so in your mind it's important to be visible so that at least people know about you and we'll talk about aged changed it walls reading the reports of to trans people who'd actually found something we could do and both of them had ended up going to the european court of human rights to argue for the fact that they have no privacy because whenever somebody wanted to see your birth certificate that would immediately out you in those days you couldn't marry in a way that's <hes> wouldn't stand out a mile the government at the time it was saying saying that's gay relationships were pretended a not valid would was saying to people like me that i could marry a woman and they have a same sex marriage because they were concerned. Administratively that was that was that was a that was a a heterosexual marriage marriage it was it was mad so these two went went to court on the same basis..
"christine b" Discussed on Coming Out Stories
"Burn for what goes on media. This is coming out stories about one of the most important conversations of your life. I'm emma goal. Swell from christine burns m._b. An author of trans britain journey from the shadows. She first came out in nineteen fifty eight at the tender age of four. I have come out so many times. Where do you start which one is the one. I start with nowadays because what i'm doing now is saying that actually when i was born in nineteen fifty four sixty five was about the time that a lot of stories about transpeople started coming into the into the mainstream when i was about four aw four and a half maybe just before i started school so i can pin it quite well. Remember telling my mom that i wanted to grow up to be a lady. She was very good. She just sort of brushed it off and made a little bit of fun than than i got quite upset and ran off upstairs and madonna came and saw later and <hes> but it was sort of they've they they treated it very lightly and i realized telegraph to me that that this wasn't something you said but he was there very strongly family and you said it your neglected the four this is probably the earliest coming out of coming to full but i immediately went back in to yeah because because you you get these signals from from the grownups around you and from school as well that these are there certain things you don't say or i guess they just want aloft often they did and i i was a child who is easily embarrassed and i was quite quiet and shy and so i i just took it in filed it as say that and of course this was the nineteen fifties wouldn't have had any points of reference narrowly not like parents might have today nineteen fifty eight say just just after i was born there was a story in the press of a transport mcchord roberta cowl and that was quite famous and it'll so being somebody called christine jorgensen in who is globally famous for her transition. I mean my parents didn't read the newspapers very much anyway. I guess you came to find out about those women a lot later on i don't i mean actually if we split forward from ford four years old twelve years old nine hundred and sixty six parents of pub. I used to have a lot of time. I'm a my hands which actually was quite good because it meant that i could <hes> dress up if i wanted to <hes> without anybody sort of catching me but i remember that that used to send me to get the sunday papers and as soon as i got the news agency there was a sign outside. I said my life as a as a as a girl or my life is a woman. This was the story of april ashley in the papers and you immediately spotless if you if you are trans you are such a tuned to seeing anything like that so i got grabbed. The papers ran home and again. I can picture the exact scene in the kitchen kneeling on the carpet. My parents are downstairs serving customers. I'm reading all about april ashley and as you said we didn't have any points of reference other than maybe saying female impersonators on the television you you know i've forgotten these danny larue gosh which is the same thing so but it is. Everybody got their points of reference. Yeah that's it. That's all you understand about. Transpeople is is <hes> is a man who cross dresses for for entertainment. You know that so yeah and the in in in that moment i discovered a that i wasn't the only person like me in the world because i did actually worry that that was uniquely freakish and that's there was a name for people like me and because i was reading it in the news of the world that it was a very bad thing to be because so that'll be going on from time immemorial and that's the only way that the press actually reported trump's people in those days as well. They hit on a formula going back to around about about nine hundred fifty eight. They've found that they could sell sunday papers by doing shot. Kara exposes transpeople in the sunday tabloids that was that was how we were represented so she hadn't chosen to speak to the socialist. Historian is sort of just roberta uniquely had actually chosen to sell a story. I think she needed the money <hes>. I've been told what she got for. Her series in the picture post in nineteen fifty. I four was in today's terms about two hundred thousand pounds wow so she did well out of that. These were these were big stories. They the first stories as it happens but they were they were the time when suddenly the press noticed that transpeople existed okay so just one on something you said a moment ago so between i just put the answer full you knew yes. He wants to grow up to be a woman on the edge twelve in the anyone but between those times you said you were you were dressing up as he did yes because my <hes> my eldest sister who's ten years older than me that had left home many years since i am quite a lot of close was still in in in in dressing tables wardrobes so i actually had a complete water but to play with and i had hours and hours and hours on my own ah five nine parents go to pub- when i was eleven years old and i had to learn to knock off to myself so i do my homework and the rest of the evening with mine so i could yeah. I wasn't completely unsupervised which has a degree of freedom. I think most children of that age would never have had. Did you ever get cold at annot. I know what you're doing now and i don't think there was any suspicion of it's very careful again. I think that probably tells you that i knew that this was something that would would bring the the ceiling down the bring the sky down on me if what he knew an avenue where we get those intimations from because i've listened to two other people you've interviewed and it's the same sort of thing that we all know. That's what we are apparently is bad what i think particularly for the gay people <hes> and the l. g._b. Of our community the hearing in the playground old time you know even now kids in payment go ooh that chair is gay you know and they're being told constantly from a young age gay is bad but i didn't even think that probably at school. They were saying anything about transmitted invisible. They quite often called me ago and they had two goals name for me sometimes because i think children actually before the adults reading me because because my mannerisms because of the way i talk because i've quiet and i was bookish bullet yeah oh yes yeah. I've i've got i can. You wrote a book on bullying. I go and i went to a lot of schools. That was the only thing that saved me to send my parents were moving around a lot because they were buying houses to renovate innovate we lived in them and when they renovated the house they sold it for profit and they don't do something bigger. They're working their way up from <hes> our working class beginnings beginnings so i was constantly experiencing new schools and having to be sucked out by new groups of children and i very quickly became the kid hit the got bullied and when the female names to hurt you. Did you feeling <hes> yeah 'cause. I news meant to hurt so so i took it hurt and i was trying to deny myself. I mean you realize you've got something that that makes you. I don unconfined polite word for it really but you know you you know you're the world's tens of freak therefore you don't want to be that i wanted to have thursday says and what he wanted to do was scrapped. Be ordinary so i guess it was a very long process then go from that sort of scared twelve year old at least realizes there's someone else out when you're not the only person in the world trans tonight actually arctic closing it as a teenager on adult. Yes the next step was when i was eighteen i i left home. We're we're in the south east of england and came up to manchester to go to university. I came here in one thousand nine hundred seventy two and being him more or less ever since so. I think ah i can claim to be an order now about your stories that you just say once university re studied with allen schering's colleagues computer science. I couldn't really get more gay again. I didn't realize looking back had i realized i think i would have had a very different existence. I write in university nine hundred seventy two at the time that the gay liberation front in manchester was beginning to find its feet but it was a very straight environment. I remember my very first night. In a hole residence. The chair of the residents association of our whole stood up dinners and gave instructions about the places this is to avoid which were essentially the precursors of <hes> of canal street avoid guys for a lot of people going to university and being away from the family as a chance to you. Pay them true selves. Did you ever feel that was possible. Yes increasing infant my first couple of years living in whole so you're actually you're very constrained because as people wander in and out all the time you actually have even though you have a room. You don't have much privacy. So what are you doing anything to eliud coke avert vertically. I roots because i'd i'd got herself. <hes> some <hes> some wheels got. I got a call and that mentor who get away in play into into remote places where i could just imagine being me. It's very it's very amateur. It's a feel ashamed of how ashamed i was but there were no role all models the only role models actually were having read about april ashley in the newspapers and that wasn't a good thing and then in nineteen seventy four so i was twenty then there there was a an autobiography by a times journalist john morris who had spent the better part of ten years transitioning and they both ended up going to a surgeon in casablanca and i don't know if anybody's old enough to remember this but but in the in the nineteen seventies we didn't go abroad it are the only way to go abroad was probably joined the armed forces. We didn't have holidays in in your car or whatever until the very first package to accompany came along at different times yes so the thought that you would go to who somewhere in north africa. I only knew about casablanca because of the film <hes> so i always think about the place in black and white so the whole the whole thing surgery probably saved up your each. It was something that a different kind of people did but you knew about other transpeople and did you have any attempts concerts paris and that's that's another thing that happened in nineteen seventy four a group of just being set up in manchester on kemp street had no. I had no difficulty remembering the address that's i went there and i saw two staked out from across the road saw people coming and going and hearts going through the chest and i am i going to go in shop. Eventually i plugged park down the courage and <hes> knocked on the door and actually what do you ask for you. Know is <hes> you you the transsexual group or whatever 'cause people were transsexual. Transgender lewis on <hes> so i went in and there was a back room i remember there. It was fairly cd. There was <hes> there was a seti with springs coming out of the sofa. <hes> there were cracked mugs with the tea it it was very much about just people just being relieved to meet meet. Somebody sells well. It must have been huge relief because this must be the first time that you've met another adult and and also i talked to be people and actually find some some some connection so that was kind of your first coming out as trans and really coming out oh definitely to myself in a way as steer to go to that actually meant acknowledging to myself that i wanted to talk to people like myself and how old way at this stage twenty sixteen years of knowing not being able to turning a bonus plus along white jeez yeah so what happened after that well again i left it a few years because because actually being able to go and see that group periodically was sort of like a safety valve..

"Everyone chat cemeteries back today. We're talking all about the novel Christine, and Katie Schaefer is joining me to discuss it this novel came out on April twenty ninth nineteen eighty three. So we're making our way through the eighties year. And it feels like a pretty good time to be a Stephen King fan. Wouldn't you agree? Katie. I definitely agree. That removes and books and all kinds of things coming out at this time, it really feels like the eighties is the time period when things relate ramped up for Stephen King. And I'm not saying he is necessarily slowed down by any means nor have the adaptation as we both. Well, no. But this feels like okay he is getting into his cocaine fueled groove.

When he takes certain things like that. You know, when you take a house and make it into a character or a car or something, you know, he does this in a different way because the car literally comes to life. It's not just your everyday average card like you can have in some things and still have it feel like a character. So I think that's something that made this unique. And it was pretty long book. It's not as long as the stand or anything by any means. But for what it is. It was pretty long and the first edition hardcover was five hundred twenty six pages. I believe my paperback copy was a little shorter than that. It was a little over five hundred. Yep. I I again, I listened to the audio book for this. And it was about fifteen hours which is short for king book. But not it still a hefty listen. Yeah, I can imagine. And I would venture to say it probably took me close to fifteen hours to read the book to and you know, that's kind of nice that you have that comparison there. Like, you know, I put this many pages into it. But you have an exact amount of time that you put into the book. So it's like, yes, I have spent a lot of time with Christine lightly. Yes. Oh, gosh. And at times it felt like it was going of much slower than yet didn't hours..
