"She satisfied or dead. Satisfying. Wanted satisfied or did. Look, this is the end of the podcast. I now have my personality test. This is probably going to send me into a spiral that will last for 20 years of me trying to discover who I am. I hope that you'll continue to hypothesize about what I am and if you come to any more conclusions, I need to hear them. And meanwhile, I'll be trying I'll be searching for my own answers. I'm so thrilled. Thank you for being here. Oh, thank you for having me. A wonderful time. This is great. Now, listener, again, you know, this is usually the end of the podcast where we stop talking to the guests and you listen to me for a few seconds and then you select some other audio or finally let go of the steering wheel.

"Sunglasses. They make you look like a little creep. Curse. Okay, so you're off to an excellent start. Okay, number two, this is a little, this one might well, actually, it sounds like it's an explanation in and of itself. The listener, Sarah, has suggested gift or a curse, king sized beds that are really just too twin mattresses pushed together. I was going to say curse. No, come on. I'm a romantic at heart. I was going to try to justify that it might be okay because you have your own side of the bed and whatnot. But I'm a cuddler. And you don't want to be in that little divot. I have to, I hate to be too curses in a row, but I have to go with curse on that. Oh, okay, go. I feel like I'm wrong answer. Don't do it to me. It's more people need to know about this. I think, you know, I learned of these a little while ago of this technique of forcing two twin beds together to create one large bed, and I absolutely support this. I mean, it's kind of a convertible of beds. It's the transformer of beds. You've got a king bed. Maybe at some point, you know, divorce. You each get to take half the bed. But what size is the frame? It's a king frame. Why are you gonna solve that? It has to be burned. In the divorce. All right. I think that's what should happen in divorces. Everything that can be split without actually breaking it should be given to one side or the other. Everything else should be put in a bonfire. I think I'm willing to launch that business. Let me know if you need things that neither of you can agree on in the divorce. I'll burn them for you. In all seriousness? Yes. Wouldn't that actually be a good business? Could that actually work? It would catch on. I feel like people threw axes at a bar, you know? It feels like the same visceral something. You'd bring the things from your broken relationship and burn them. And some kind of like I think this is great. I don't know. There's mighty something. I think that you rent a warehouse space, or something, right? And decorate it really funky and fun. Alcohol. We send the movers to your home, or whatever, where things need to be picked up, then you get in the back with them, they bring you to our warehouse. And you get to burn them. Yeah. That actually feels like it feels like it might something about that much. There's something there, which again, I will be putting no effort to hopefully like a year down the line, somebody will be pitching that on Shark Tank, I'll pause it and get my lawyer on the line. But yeah, I think the king size beds that are really just two twin beds gift. I assume that it's a money saving technique, which is great. And it's also a fun surprise. You've been sleeping on this king size bed for months, and then you find out it's two twins. You've been betrayed by your furniture, what a thrill. Okay, finally, gift your curse and unexpected windfall. So just a bunch of money coming to you. Gift. Why? Oh. You seem like it's not a wind. It's not a good thing. I'm giving nothing away here. I need to be getting everything away. Why? Why do you say why do you say gift again? Why? Explain yourself. Let's see. Do you like my bridger voice? I don't know. It's mean to build. It sounds nothing like you. It's kind of a Batman villain. Because, you know, money you could put it towards things you want to put it towards. And such and such. Oh, I have to hear what you're thinking. What are you thinking? It's a curse. It's a curse. It's unexpected and the money you're not going to know what to do with it. So, you know, I know what to do with it. That's what everyone thinks. That's what everyone thinks when the unexpected windfall appears in their life. When you say windfall, how much are you talking about? I'm talking $400 million. Unexpected, I understood your meaning. Windfall we were on two different 25 bucks? No, but you know, in the hundreds of thousands. Okay. It would be lovely and munchie. A 400 million. There's like tomb, too much pressure. There are too many people that know about it and they're all up in your business. Yeah, suddenly you've got a target on your back wherever you go. You're like, all of your bad habits can suddenly be supported with endless money. You're buying tacky mansions all over America. I think that an unexpected windfall, well, rather I know, is a curse. And unfortunately, you only got one correct. Oh no. Yeah. I wasn't careful and I wasn't keeping track. I'll say you were absolutely reckless. You were just kind of all over the road on this game. And it's a shame to see it happen, but you gave it your best efforts. Now, this is the last part of the podcast. This is called, I said no emails. People write in to I said no gifts at Gmail dot com. I'm going to be very honest. My listeners are desperate people. They've all got some different situation in their life that they couldn't just solve on their own. I don't know what personality type that is where you just put your burden on strangers or podcast hosts. But would you help me answer a question? Of course. Okay, this says hi, bridger. They don't address you, which I always find extremely rude. The least you could do is a high bridge or end guest. But look, we'll take what we can get. And then, of course, now I feel bad because the first sentence is loving the podcast. What a shame. I take it back. I love the way you started this letter person. I am 26 years old and just moved to a new city because I went through a quarter life crisis and needed a fresh start. So I moved across the country, you know, normal stuff. Anyway, I am making new friends who invite me out for happy hour and such, but I still don't know them that well. They invite me for birthday dinners and gatherings, and I was wondering if you could help me with default gifts. Right now, my defaults are candles, wine, mugs, or wine glasses, or plants if I know the recipient can take care of them. What are some suggestions you have for me to add to this default gift collection? Thank you. That's from Claire. And she's apparently now in New Orleans. So I don't know where maybe she was in Arizona before. We'll assume Arizona. Claire formerly of Arizona now of New Orleans is meeting new people and apparently giving a lot of gifts away. Which feels like she's coming on very strong. Claire, I feel like by the time I've read this letter, you may have completely alienated yourself from all of New Orleans by begging them to be your friend with candles, wine, wine glasses. That was mugs. That was a lot. That was a long list. Yeah. And she said birthdays. How many birthdays? Because I do know that when a birthday party makes sense to bring a gift. Right. But how many, how many people had birthdays in the time that she was there? Right. And then it seems like this is all pretty new. And suddenly, she knows enough people that she's going to birthdays. Birthdays where she feels close enough to bring gifts. Claire seems dangerous to me. Claire seems like we've had drifters right into this podcast before. But Claire is textbook like she was in Arizona. She had to get out fast. Is the dry heat? Yeah, the dry heat drove drove her out of her mind and she fled to the big easy. And there she started every person she met. She basically was carrying Santa's bag around with her. And muggles are heavy. Mugs are extremely heavy, fragile. She probably had broken wine glasses in this bag. She's dangerous. I've already said that, but now she's, I guess, also physically dangerous with this broken glass dead plants, et cetera. But what's something else she can throw in her bag? If by the small chance that she isn't person non grata in New Orleans, fancy soap? I love that. Like bars, soap, bottled, soap, powder. And I wish I knew the name because then I could maybe they'll give me something free for mentioning them. But right next to the vast is a fancy, soap place. It has a bottled soap for $40. It's a place like across the street. Yeah. What is that place? What is that place called? It's something. Just to start with an R no. Oh, I would love to know. We've got a name it. Fancy, they sell like colognes perfumes. Yes. And they'll mix it there for you. Is that right? Yes. Making it customer. $40 for a bottle of soap, how big is the bottle? I think it's a normal sized bottle. That is so expensive. Isn't it? I mean, but again, Claire didn't set a budget. I've heard of some candles. I don't know what kind of candle buyer Claire is. But can get very expensive. Have you ever heard these crazy prices for these people are spending hundreds of dollars on candles on a candle? And I don't understand it. Do you think this is an emperor's new clothes situation where it's like, what? We're imagining it's better than the Yankee candle or what have you. But how cool to me? Right. I guess I'm sure they smell nice. But what price do we put on our scents? I think that's the big question today. And hundreds of dollars for a candle, $40 for a bottle of soap. Feels unfair. Yeah. I will say that place that you go to or that you suggest the soap, you can go and get like a sample bottle for cheaper. It's probably an ounce for $20. Right. Okay, that can't possibly be true. That is not true. This has just become kind of a disinformation podcast. I'm kind of the Joe Rogan of sense at this point. I'm just spreading lies. It's not. Is it? Yes. That is it, I think. Aesop is the place with the yes. They used to have hand stuff you outside the store, even that you could use. It's those beautiful kind of medicinal bottles. Yes, and they have a sink inside where you can wash your hands. I love them. To practice. Aesop. That's an excellent. Very close to our gift to give people. Photos of yourself. That's a nice thing for a new friend in case they forget with your name on it, like a little, that's a decent default gift. Everyone loves a live animal. Just take around a pack of dogs that you can give to strangers as you meet them. These don't feel like easy, doable, default gifts. That as a new person from New Orleans are going to help you ease your way into the city. Everyone loves a beignet. A New Orleans type snack, maybe have one of those in your purse to give away. But that all feels right for and forgive me, listener, what was your name? Claire from Arizona now of New Orleans. I think we've answered our question perfectly. Yes. Again, we don't know if Claire is alive or dead at this point. She obviously lives kind of a wild life. And she's probably got a lot of enemies. But at least now she has a few extra suggestions as far as. Giving things away. I was at a place in Palm Springs recently. We went in. They said they would let you use your hands, scrub or whatever that I think. The woman there could not have been more on cocaine. I mean, I've never seen anything like this before. It was the retail employee from another dimension. And she wanted desperate for us to buy that body scrub, but I think it was more of the drugs speaking. She had a very cocaine outfit all white and did give me a decent hand scrub. But ultimately it was a jarring experience. So I just want to people to be aware of that. She actually scrubbed your hand. Scrub my hands. Oh. Huh. Coke surging through her body. And then we left without buying it, of course. I'm not buying the hands, scrub. I just wanted my hands to be scrubbed. It was a fascinating experience. So anytime somebody offers a free hand scrub. I say take them up on it. You never know where the road will lead once you agree to a free hand scrub. Keiko, we answered Claire's question perfectly. I'm sure.

"As we sit in that I'm not really actually promoting anything, I just stream of consciousness. Unlike bridger, who apparently can't do it. So you are a challenger. It brought it out of me. Reading that chapter just awakened the challenger within. Hopefully this episode is awoken. It's a walk in a world. No, is it awoken or awaken? Awakens, wakened, that can't be right. Woken up. But that doesn't sound as important. No. Sparked the challenger in all of our listeners. And.

"Going to say that's, I think that's a two for me. That feels pushy. Yeah, and the idea of rewarding people for doing things feels bonkers, okay. You said a one? Yeah. One, okay. And number 5, I do not have much sympathy. I do not have much sympathy for those who are weak and facilitating. Or vacillating, excuse me. Weakness just invites trouble. This, I'm saying number one, this is starting to this person starting to sound like a psycho to me. Yeah, this is a real low. And Elise is laughing. What else does this situation? I'm just mortified. But you're mortified. Is this you? No, I never want to meet this person. Nothing to do with the challenger. We've probably all met a challenger at some point, but this sort of person seems cruel. Yes, at their worst cruel at their best a leader, like a brave brave soul that puts themselves in front of weaker I shouldn't say weaker, but people who need help. People who need a champion. Right. Yeah, I guess I'm looking at these things as probably because I've dealt with unhealthy challenges for and I'm like, oh, that sort of behavior is bad. But I guess a healthy challenger you don't even know. They're just guiding you. Or maybe the three of us are all excellent challengers. And we just don't know it. There's really no saying. Well, that reveals a little bit about both of our personalities. Basically saying that you can bully us into doing whatever you want. If you're a challenger, come into our lives and manipulate us, reward, punish, but you know why I wrote so much as so many doodles down at first is that I feel like you're someone, at least on this podcast that you're not afraid of saying a controversial thought though. You think so? Opinions. For sure. Okay, I suppose that's true. Wait, did you doodle on the challenger? I did. Somewhere even noticed that you did. Interesting. And again, I didn't even notice it because it looks like illustrations within the book. You need to become an illustrator for personality test. Oh, is that a job? It is now. Oh, I would love to. You should get your own special edition of this book. Okay. Have a little forward in the beginning. I'll do a blurb on the back. Oh, I love it. I feel like. That feels like a sellable idea. Yes. Okay, so you think I am partially a challenger? Interesting. Well, do you see, this is my problem I can't stop. Do you find it easy to say what it is that you think and back up your opinion? I will say on a podcast that I host, absolutely. Absolutely. In my day to day interactions at work, that sort of thing, a much different situation. I feel like on a podcast, this is my job. So I'm like, if I'm not doing this, what am I doing? Right. But then when I'm around other people, I'm very careful about other people's feelings and wanting everyone to be happy. Probably to a fault at the time. Oh, okay. So what are we saying here? Do I need to transfer my podcast personality into my real life? And suddenly I'm making millions of dollars a year. I'm Titan of industry. People say bridger's a challenger. We know it. He's alive. Again, I'm sorry. I don't know if this is part of the podcast for me to comment every time and at least last but I just think this is the thrill and I'll say it a billion times of recording a podcast in person. Getting to comment on a shared reality. Oh, there's nothing I like more. I'm so tired of zoom. Oh my God. So when someone comes to the backyard, I think. Reality exists. And the listener better be thrilled. They better be thrilled. Otherwise, you will, I'll find them. And I will add them to my database where I will track down their personality and shame them. So just be aware of that, listener. Okay, so you're a number four. I'm a 6 hour husband before. That's right. And I'm all over the place. Yes. I can't be counted on. I'm just you're an onion. We need to pee. What is at the root? Someone get me a new therapist. Well, this is fascinating. I really can't wait to find out, oh, and this is just changing to a page on 6 that says daring to follow your heart. And I think that's good advice that we need to dare to follow our heart. And it gives you some prompts and things like this. And do you still go back to this book on occasion? I do. I love it. And you know, it's actually really great for writers and it's really great for actors as well. Oh, I bet. How do you use it as an actor? Well, for an actor sometimes for me, it's helpful for me to know what I think that character's number is. If it's the same as mine, if it's different than mine, and I can read more about them, you can find little nooks and crannies that might not be so obvious for myself of their thought patterns or why they're motivated to do certain things. Oh, that's great. And then for writing, I find it's really interesting in a way to keep your characters separate. Because sometimes your characters kind of will start to bleed. Absolutely blurred together and kind of have different names. Yes. Yes. And I'll just be like a swamp of characteristics. Right. Yes, I know that feeling very well. And so I like this because you can kind of try to keep their motivations very separate and right. Somebody should do a show that's just all 9 personality types. Each character is one of the personality types. And I think you're the leader of the group. I think we're developing a show in the moment here. This is again a thing. We are working it out. We will be pitching to NBC next week. Look out this fall on NBC, the personalities. Yes. Is this that name right there? I'm clicking on that. Well, I mean, if nothing else, I like to throw an idea out on this podcast, not do any of the work on it. Wait for someone else to do it, and then sue. That feels like an easier way to money to me. Just throw the idea out there, have the audio recording, and then be like, wait a minute, 6 months from now, the personality, CBS, what? I will own the decadent work. Well, this is so exciting. I can't wait to give this a shot. And I'm also just thrilled with your illustrations. So great. If you don't mind, I'm going to share some of those on Instagram. People need to see. We've got to get your illustrator career off the ground. That's something else you should be doing. And then of course, in addition to the work of our television show the personalities, this fall, maybe on ABC. Okay. Let's hit all of that. We've got to go. The big four. PBS, we can't leave people out. We could develop kind of a show for PBS where no one makes any money. And the show has forgotten. Yes. That feels right. The front of this cover looks very PBS to me. It has a little Bob Ross. Yes. Soothing. You know you're going to be nurtured by whatever happens inside it. We love PBS. Okay. I think we should play a game. Okay. Do you want to play a game called gift master or a game called gift or a curse? Gift or a curse. Okay. I need a number between one and ten from you. 9. Okay, I have to do some light calculating. You have the mic for a moment. You can recommend promote, say hello, diagnose somebody's personality, whatever you want. I'll be right back. Okay. Hello, listeners. I am coming to you live for me, not for you. This is not live for you because you are not here right now. Right now it's just the three of us. A humble, beautiful, brilliant three,.

"The main things because a lot of different numbers can be anxious and these types of things and hard work. I think one of the main things about a 6 is that it's perhaps hard to get very close to them, but then once you're behind that wall, it's very solid. Trapped. Trapped with that person. Yes, very, yeah, very loyal, very dedicated to those people. Okay. And how long have you been studying all of this? Oh, I've been obsessed with this. Like early 2000s? 22 years into this thing at this point. I mean, I'm assuming that you started on January 1st, 2000. Yeah. A bit of time. What got you into it? A friend of mine just came over and did one of these little salons. Did you just use the lawns? I feel like you did. I still never done the salon. I should do a song. We're all right. We've been on this house for two years. I've had you and Ann Elise being here is almost as many people as I've had at one time. I get so anxious about having people over. But a salon would be terrific. So you say anxious and then I think, oh, maybe he's a 6. I'm a very anxious person. Are you okay? Just extremely anxious. It's not helped by my caffeine consumption. Or my career choice. Or just anything that I've kind of brought into my life. But maybe I am a loyalist. Well, maybe I am gullible. I don't know. The only way is the only way to find that out is for someone to lie to me. So I wanted to see if or trick. But I don't know what the other options are, obviously, you've identified some things. If you had to guess right now, what would you say I am? If I had to guess now, I'd say 7. That was the one that I was leaning towards most towards the end. The enthusiast. The enthusiast. And what does that mean? It's someone who see, this is why it's difficult because I don't, you don't seem a classic number in any of them. But the reason why I thought of enthusiasts is that you have a wide knowledge base, you seem to know a lot, you can carry on a conversation with a lot of different people. I feel like and be able to have a touch tone on something that would be interesting to them. Is that right? Yeah, I'll accept that. I mean, I don't know if it's just I would be careful about saying that I know much of anything. At all. But I do feel like I'm at least happy to talk about things. I'm curious to hear what people have to say about things. Right. Very few things very few topics bore me. So maybe that maybe that's true. I don't know. The enthusiast. That sounds very 7. Okay, so what's your husband? My husband's a four, a four, which is, which is an individualist. Oh. And is this kind of a zodiac style thing where it's like personality types can clash, or does any of that matter? I don't think so. You know, with all of these things, they're all levels. So if someone's a very healthy any of these numbers, it's going to be easier to get along with that person. And an unhealthy version of any of them. What does it mean to be an unhealthy version of that? So for instance, so the personality or how I think of personality is, is almost the way you first learn to deal with problems. So as a child, what were your first tools that you went to that you used a lot. And when someone's really maybe not healthy, it's very obvious what those tools are, because they grip them very hard, they're very desperate to use them and you can label it very easily. So when someone's very healthy, yes, they know those tools that are easy to them, but they're able to use other tools. They're able to cope in different ways. And don't have to go to like a triggered response to anything. Right, right. Yeah, so has any of this gotten you in trouble with friends or family where you're like, I think you're an unhealthy investigator. And you just have to admit it to yourself. Yeah, I mean, I do think that a part of a part of the danger of any of this stuff is one using it as an excuse for yourself. I can't. I'm such a sick. I was so anxious. I just couldn't, I couldn't do that. I can't. I'm a 6. Or labeling someone else and not putting them in such a tight box. Kind of weaponizing it in that way. Definitely. That little bit of knowledge is so dangerous. I mean, that's how I'm going to use this. I'm just going to memorize this book and just start pointing out everybody. Labeling people. Snap labels. I'm going to create an online database of everyone I know. And really lay it out for people. So for me, now I have this book, what is my best path forward with this? I should just read through and see what reflect on each one and see if it is me or what do I do? Well, there is, I take it back, there is a kind of a little bit of a workbook aspect to it because at the beginning of each chapter, you can ask yourself, I don't know if it's ten questions or something. And you can give it a number. So that's like a quick test so you go through all 9, and you can say, oh, this, you know, this number, I listed all 5s, which is the highest. Right. And then it'll kind of see my problem. With anything that requires a between one and 5, I overthink and cheat, where I'm like, I think the system wants this from me. Right. And I think this is what I have such a hard time being a blank or just like almost a stream of consciousness where it's just like, this is the true answer coming straight from my brain. It's like, it has to overcome all of these different walls before it gets. But let me see if I can find one of these and see if I can. Oh, great. Rapid fire answer. And we'll see if we can discover something about my personality. I'll probably uncover some horrible truth and this will just become a really dark episode. Let's try the chat. Oh, I love it. Okay. Okay, go ahead, yes. Let's both answer. Do you want to answer? Sure. Sure, sure. Number one. And you have to answer between, okay, one not at all true to seldom true threesome. What true for generally true in 5 very true. Number one, I am extremely independent and don't like having to rely on others for what I really need. For me, that's number 5. A four. Okay, okay. Number two, I feel that you have to break some eggs to make an omelet. I'm going to say two. Yeah, one. Yeah, that's like the idea of causing trouble to get what you want. It feels tough to me. Number three, when I care about people, I often begin to think of them as my people. And feel like I need to watch out for their interests. I'm going to say four. One. I mean, I care about people, but I don't put the thing about this one that's very untrue for me is I can not imagine in any universe referring to my Friends as my people. That doesn't feel in line with my personality whatsoever. I would feel like an enormous dork. Let's do two more. Okay. Number four, I know how to get results. I know how to reward people and how to put pressure on them to get things done. I'm.

Okay, so the first is the, oh my God. This is the wisdom of the enneagram, enneagram. Enneagram, it's the complete guide to psychological and spiritual growth for the 9 personality types. We're not waiting just a minute. There's something else happening. There are two pens. So I assume this is thank you, analyze. Kind of a workbook? No. Okay, I need to know everything. I feel so I'm like, have you heard of it? I've heard of it. I've never said enneagram aloud. There is words that you'll read online or in books or whatever, but never have an opportunity to say. So I've always, and it's kind of a scary word. Any other scare you what they value. It's like a test. Yeah, it's like, where are we going once we get the past the two ends? It's like it could be, yeah? Yeah, or it could be air. But then enneagram, it's probably what you should just assume. Any gram. It's 9 and symbol. Greek? 9 and some I read that. If you read the book, it's in there. I mean, I've obviously heard about the different personality types. I'm vaguely familiar, but I want you to just speak on this for a moment. As to why you brought this. Oh, sure. Well, so it's one of the things that I'm obsessed with, and I can't stop thinking about what number of people are. So that's why I brought it. Right. But also, I had this idea. It didn't quite work, but I had this idea that while I was listening to you, your podcast, I would do it all on which number I thought you were. Wait, so is that in here? Yes. Oh my God. So we're opening it up. Let's see here. Oh, I'm seeing some towards the back here. Let's see. I passed it. Oh, that's some too. Wait. Oh, this is your doodling. These are beautiful. These just look like illustrations in the box. I thought this was fully just. I was like, wow, this is a fascinating thing for personality types. Very flowery. Okay, wait, so let's see. Oh my God, these are excellent doodles, actually. They look almost like fossils or something. So you have me and is this the one you've selected for me? Well, here's the idea that it didn't quite work out is that what I thought is, I would switch around. Okay. So if I thought that you were sounding like a three, I would start doodling in the area that's the three. And then if you said something that maybe oh no, he's a 7. So I'd flip to that area and try to like so the idea was that by the end of listening to that podcast, it would be very clear. Right. Like one number would have way more doodles than another area. And it kind of worked out. But I think I have to, well, I'm going to probably think more on it after today, after you in person. And then listening to more podcasts. And because I'm obsessed, I can't, once I start thinking about what number a person is, I can't stop thinking. Yeah, so currently the one I found, okay, here's another that has quite a bit, which is number one, the reformer. This has got a significant amount of doodling here and kind of some shading. Okay, so the reformer, and then we saw number 7, which is the enthusiast. Okay, so I'm kind of as far as I can tell so far, I'm really looking for answers for my life right now. Little do you know, I'm just like, oh, this is fine. This might get me on track for something. Oh, we've got an investment. Oh, and how odd is this? Wow, I'm investigating. Yes. I come upon number 5. You've doodled slightly the investigator. Number 5. I mean, I think that's what this says is that I'm kind of, I'm kind of a Jack of all trades. I'm offering a little bit of everything to everyone in my personality. But of course, this is inconclusive. You're now to another. Now I'm also part number 8 has a decent amount of doodling. The challenger. Okay. What do you identify as? So I identify as a 6, which is a loyalist. And what does that mean? Sure. So a couple of things about a 6 is that we're we run on anxiety, a little bit of a Debbie downer. Do you have that friend that's always like, you mentioned an idea to them, and then they have a ton of reasons why it won't work. That might be a 6. Very hard worker, very dedicated, very loyal, kind of paranoid, but then gullible. In any case, those are all 6s. And why is it labeled the loyalist with these other qualities? Don't really strike me as loyal quality. As part of I think the first, I think one of.
"keiko" Discussed on I Said No Gifts!
"Yes, oh no, no, no, no, I'm skipping ahead goodness gracious. No, that night, this is terrible. It's not terrible. I slept in the entryway of a church under a mat. What? The borrowing of the change was the next day. So in the next morning, yes. And then, believe it or not, they didn't like the idea of adopting a child that they had never met before, by the way. Another team. Yeah, another team. They thought that their kids that they had at that time were enough. And so I went back home and just got sent home. I just went, they fed me. I had a nice meal. And they went, maybe you should go. Maybe you should. How about your home? How did you pitch this idea to your boyfriend's parents? You know what? Here's the thing. If I reach back into the recesses of my mind, I think I showed up, I think I just talked to him, and then he tried to explain why this person is here. Oh, and this is even worse, so my first legal name is Christine. His sister's name is Christine. So I didn't even get yelled at by my dad. My dad called up the house. Asked for Christine. His sister gets on the phone and supposedly, I don't know, but so she gets an earful. An episode of Frasier. It's not a movie. It is a farce, isn't episode afraid. I'm looking for Christine. Christine the phone's for you. It's ridiculous. I love that. Literally happened. But your parents weren't mad at you. Well, I mean, you know, it was high school, there's all kinds of, yeah, there was no dramatic daughter. There's a lot. There's a lot of emotions. Were you an emotional child? High schooler? I probably was. I think I was a very repressed high schooler in so many ways. So a lot of the emotion got just held back completely. Probably still being held back in a lot of ways. But I don't remember any giant outbursts or running away from homes or fighting with my parents. But maybe I've hidden, I've just forgotten at this point. I'm sure I fought with them. What are they so Mormon? Yes. Is that no, not at all? No. Did you? Because you said you were Mormon. You grew up. And it was dramatic. That part, but it was like my exit from mormonism was slow enough that I think they had basically caught on by the time that I actually told them. Okay. And then but then it was another 6 years before I came out to them. And that was probably as dramatic, but not bad in any way. For the most part, they were good about it. Some Mormons can really surprise you. And I think it's more people are really for the most part wonderful and accept. It can be accepting and at least evolve at the church itself is a different story where it's like the organizations, not ideal. Their views on a lot of things are. Florida S we could say. But yeah, so you were a dramatic teen, you ran away from home for a night slept under a mat in the door of a church? Yeah, so this is very kind of cute actually. It's like a little mouse. Okay, I'll let it be cute. I love that it's cute. I love that in your mind it's high schoolers do cute. I did so many dumb things. Oh, yeah. And I'm so glad that there's no evidence of all of the dumb things. I mean, how do people live these days? Well, I think that high schoolers are more sappy now. Yeah, no, I think you're right. They know they're in a glass house. As opposed to us living in the Stone Age or what have you no cell phones or limited Internet, that kind of thing. I mean, speaking of bad behavior, drama and stirring the pot. You agreed to be on this podcast a little while ago. I said, no gifts. I was so excited. I thought cake was going to come over. We'll sit in the backyard. It'll probably be a moderate temperature. Neither hot nor cold, nice blue skies. And then today, things, the milk began to curdle, let's say. I woke up this morning, everything was fine. Check the temperature. It was a solid 90°. It probably 9 30 in the morning. Temperature continues to climb and climb and climb. I know you're coming over. I'm panicking. The time rolls around for you to show up to my house and you are, I mean, obviously aware that the podcast was called, I said, no gifts. There have been emails exchanged, et cetera. So I was a little surprised in my sweaty discomfort to see you coming up the driveway holding a little package. And so I'm just going to ask you right now, we're here in the moment. There's no zoom to separate us..
"keiko" Discussed on I Said No Gifts!
"Okay. So how many times have you been to this place? Oh, well, it's one of those things that if you're taking someone around the island, I don't go by myself. The Hollywood sign of collab. Exactly. Oh my goodness. What are the, what are the things that where do you take people when they come to visit LA? What do you take people? It's so hard. It's difficult, right? I mean, I'll take them to the beach. Maybe out to the Santa Monica pier. We'll drive by the Hollywood sign. None of these things really excite me. And then most of the people in my life are kind of my sensibility. So I'm like, it probably doesn't excite them either. But it's hard to tell because they're on vacation, and I just find it boring because I live here. I mean, Griffith Park, but that's just kind of a dusty park. Where do you take people? That's hard too. I mostly take people to restaurants that I like. What are your restaurant go tos? Well, we were just talking for a minute as I came up, but there's a place called you know me hand roll. So that's what it's called. Yeah and you know me hand rolling and it's right it's near my house and that I crave now. That place is pretty new. Yeah. And it looks very nice. Does it feel unacceptable to a slob like me? Oh my goodness. Are you a sloth? I feel like a soul. You lied. You are lying right now. I don't know. Every time I look at it, I'm like, that looks nicer than I'm used to. I'm so cheap. And it's like, and it just looks cool and kind of nice and so I'm like, can am I allowed to eat hand rolls there? Well, the first time I went in there, I will admit, I did get a little bit of side eye from the sushi chef for the amount of time that I left my hand roll sitting on the counter. I didn't realize there was a time limit. There is not. But I was like, what is this vibe? I'm getting here about, you know, you're talking. And you're like, oh, but what I realized is that it makes a difference. Right, I mean it is the temperature. Yeah, it's the crispiness of the seaweed kind of, it becomes a soggy. Yeah, so one side absorbed my lesson. And knew my place. I came back the next time and JaVale. Oh, yes. And then he was so chatty. So happy. But then that becomes a problem because he's chatting with you. Now you have no idea. That's an unwinnable scenario he's set up for. Well, yes. Difficult things. Well, I mean, I guess that does make perfect sense. You also wouldn't eat soup, just sit on the counter. Yeah. And he didn't say anything, but that's what I'm assuming. And these are my assumptions as well. That's why assuming was happening. That's what this is. Everywhere. Always. It's my buddy. Okay, I need to, okay, so that's one of your go tos. What are some other favorite places you like to eat? Oh, this is not just in my area, but salt and straw always. Oh my God. People go crazy. I know. It's such a fun novelty. Yeah. You know they're going to enjoy it. Yeah. Unless the flavor of the month is blood. But they haven't they done that though? They've done things like that. The flavor of the month is old turkey. I don't want my treat to be a dare. I want it to be a treat. But they have the standbys. Right. Do you have a favorite flavor there? Other chocolate brownie. Oh my God. Are we buddies now? The brownies in that up until this point. We were absolutely no, the brownies in that ice cream are better than brownies you can buy at a bakery. They're delicious. They're good. Occasionally I get tempted into the flavor of the month. If it's something that sounds appealing. But you get to taste a lot of sampling, but I try to be try to be conscious of how many samples I'm taking. I don't want to be you'll see somebody try every flavor. And so it's like what number are you? How many? Three, three. Three. And the third one I'm apologizing. What are you? About three is kind of the limit. Three feels crazy to me. Yeah. I already kind of knew what I was going to order anyway. And now I'm just abusing this system. But they do charge a premium. So I'm like, if I can take an extra tablespoon of ice cream, I don't think it's a big deal. That's a really good visitor tip. Yeah, I'm wondering, yeah, then yeah, I was telling you, and let me ask you this. Have you been to worst kucha? Oh yeah. Is that how you pronounce that restaurant's name? I think it's versatile. I don't know. I don't know, but this is how this is how my husband and I say bus cool. When we get the vine stuff now, which is our favorite beer? I guess you just have to leave the pronunciation. We don't know. That feels like probably closer to the real pronunciation. Right? Right. WV. Yeah. I never took German. Did you take languages in high school? I did. I think I took Japanese. This is how well it sunk in with me. I think I took two years of Japanese. I took French, did nothing for me. No. But oh, we've got a helicopter that always means trouble. Someone spent injured someone stolen a car. They're passing over. Hopefully if we got a little bit of that audio, I imagine that would provide a thrill for the listener. The listener is looking for some sort of action some sort of thrill. And that's real. That's not CGI. That's real. The grit that we've kind of lost in today's computer based landscape. If you don't, have you ever I was thinking about this earlier, actually, as I was driving down this hill over here, I was thinking, if my life were made into a movie and they had to make and they were like, we've got to find an action scene somewhere in this. I was like, I could not come up with a single thing that seems exciting enough for an action sequence in a movie. I was like, sir, I guess I went down a hill on a sled at some point. That doesn't feel like you're choosing from your whole life. Yeah, I was digging through my memory, and I couldn't think of a single thing that was like where someone would be like, this is our action sequence. I guess my movie would just be a complete bore. Do you have anything that like, I guess, but I've never run away from something I've never escaped. Have you done anything exciting that would be the action sequence of a movie? I could, is this a sherry kind of? Of course. Okay. Keep nothing to yourself. Oh, I'm so excited. I don't think I've shared this. This is not an action car chase type of action. But in high school, I was dissatisfied with my home. And so I decided that I would, this is my idea that I would live with my boyfriend, who was in high school. So that means his parents, I guess, in my high school brain. Kind of get adopted. Yeah, this is my idea. 'cause I was really mad. And I stormed out of my house with nothing at the evening. And Hawaii has a very good bus system. But I had no money. I literally went to the gas station attendant and asked for two quarters. To use the bus to the other side of the island to show up. This is pre cell phone. To show up on my boyfriend's house..
"keiko" Discussed on I Said No Gifts!
"I said no gifts I'm bridger Weiner and we're in the backyard, isn't that a thrill? It's simply a 100°. We're in kind of a heat wave. So I've already begun to sweat. This isn't the first time I've sweat on this podcast, but it's the first time I'm revealing it to you. You may hear the birds, which is always exciting. I feel like the birds are singing. If you can't hear them, maybe turn up the audio on your car stereo, your headphones. Do whatever you need to do. We've got to get into the podcast. We've got to have a nice time. I love today's guest. I think you're going to have a terrific time listening to the two of us chat. It's Keiko agena. Keiko. Hi, Richard. Welcome to I said no gifts. I feel very welcome. Your intro relaxed me. Listening to the oh, that might be, maybe I'm just melting. And I'm confusing it with relaxation. There's a very fine line between the two. Yes. Just heat exhaustion. I guess that's the sauna. What we're talking about. That's just imagine this is a sauna scenario. Oh, how delicious. And we'll be best of Friends. By the end, which is what happens in asana, which is dear Friends in asana. Just to an old rule. Yeah, when we planned this podcast, I thought I hope it doesn't rain, which was a strange thing to think in Los Angeles. The thought I should have had is I hope that it's not a 101°. But here we go. This was unexpected. Yeah. How are you doing with the heat? You know, I think I fare better than most because I grew up in Hawaii. Right. So I don't mind it as especially when people talk about humidity. I kind of love it. I grew up in a little bit of a sauna. Right, so do you prefer a humid heat or a dry heat? I don't even know if I've experienced what is a dry heat. I think this is a drug that is dry heat. I could be wrong. It's kind of a deserted, oh, it's true, true true, where it feels like it just sucks all the moisture out of you. Oh, that makes sense. I think I like both. I think I like that. I refuse to pick a side. I don't, yeah. You'll find that might be true, and that might be the beginning of a pattern. I'm familiar with that sort of pattern. But yeah, for me, I think because I grew up in a desert state Utah and I'm in California, desert state. I'm used to a dry heat, whereas a Hawaii is, it's a little bit more of a thing to work through. The wetness. Do you thrive in a Florida? Does anyone thrive? I know the answer to that as soon as I asked. As soon as it left your lips, he went. That was a mistake. That question has no I can easily pick a side on that picture. I think the only person who's ever thrived in Florida is Gloria Estefan. Oh. There's a famous Florida driver. She and the Miami sound machine. Have you been to Florida? I have, I actually have had some nice experiences there. I went there as a high schooler for a drama competition. I think way back when I was in high school and then I think we filmed there. It's all a blur now, but yes. I mostly, all my judgments on this comes mostly from stories about Florida and the crazy things that and sad things that have been in Florida but so many out of that state at this point a little bit. Somebody there would be working to hit the brakes on some of the horror. Spread it out. Because I'm sure there are nice people there. They probably feel tremendous. Well, and I know my sister lived there for a while. But she didn't have a great time. And now she's she went back to Hawaii. Which I think she's a human state. Maybe. Yeah. What does she do for work? Well, now she's taking breaks she used to do bookkeeping. But she just had a baby. And she just moved and she just got married. Everything just happened this past year. And so Virginia's new just had the baby. Have you been to Virginia to visit the baby? No. And I haven't, I haven't FaceTimed. Oh, I don't know why I'm sharing this with you. Because we have a thread. And there's a lot of pictures that come through, but my other sisters that they always call and FaceTime and I haven't done that. I don't remember the distant Diane. Well, I probably always have been a little bit. And I should FaceTime, right? I mean, FaceTiming with a baby is a little bit like, what are we doing here? I guess you get to see the moving around the baby. Yes, it should be done. But you've got to plant the seed with the baby. Otherwise, boy or a girl. It's a girl. This girl or this baby is going to grow to resent you. Will eventually be that rift will only grow with. That's true. Time and space. Time and space. Wow. And so you've got wait, do you have two sisters then? I have three younger sisters. Oh wow. Yes. And are they are any of them still in Hawaii? Yes, two of them are still in Hawaii. Okay. And do you get back to Hawaii at all? I try. But once a year. Which island did you grow up on? I grew up in Oahu, which is the island with Waikiki and Honolulu and all of the traffic. It's very much the city island. It is. It's like a have you been? The only part of I went there in high school. And it was much more urban than I expected. Yes. A lot of city and environment, basically. But it was wonderful. I had a great time. Good. I also, are you familiar with the Polynesian cultural center there? Oh, of course. You have to go to the Polynesian cultural center. I love it. It's the only place I have a rule with my husband that I won't go anywhere where there is parking for buses because I feel like that's too touristy. That's my role. It's true though. Think about it. I mean, it's either an elementary school or a tourist track. Right. But that's my exception because the Polynesian cultural center is a tourist trap that I actually love because it's wonderful. I had a great time there. Part of the reason I was there is it's owned by the Mormon church. Oh, yes. And I grew up more, man. And so I guess we were just aware of it or whatever. But it felt like they did a good job celebrating various cultures and then we had a pig dinner and drank out of a pineapple. It seemed like a good time. But I've always been like, what do Hawaiians think about the pollination cultural center? Well, this Hawaiian, well, I'm not actually going to go home, but loves it. I'm sure there are many people there that maybe aren't as happy about it. But yeah, it is a strange thing that it's set up by the Mormon church. Right. And that's a very strong influencer. Yeah, and I think it is kind of a destination. I mean, you might know better than being from Hawaii, but and maybe just from the Mormon perspective, of course we had heard of it. But you're familiar. You know it's kind of a tourist trap..

So i know you'll have a great answer to this What brings you the most hope for our future right now. You know i. I think it was what we were talking about. A little bit of of the connections that you make with people e. 'cause the people that i meet that are willing to to go outside of their comfort zone and have fun and laugh and complain a little bit when it gets hard. That's what that's what gives me gives me hope. Because i think the more people that i meet that are are doing this.

"Going on this week a lot of really scary situations for our listeners. I would assume all over the country right now who are dealing with the ongoing effects of climate change Including hurricane ida and fires in lake tahoe. So we're going talk a little bit about it But we're going to try to keep it brief. Because we have not one but two great interviews coming up with keiko and with scott all talking about writing letters and other stuff too of course but Today's all about letters yet. Jam packed episode with lots of action items. But before we get to that you know we always talk about first. The things that motivate us to get into action the big news the day of course. Is that the longest. Us involved were in our history Has in did the. Us has completely militarily left afghanistan. that's right twenty years later we have officially ended the war in ghanistan and I have a a lot of conflicting feelings about it because they're still You know a few hundred americans left there and there are thousands and thousands of afghan citizens who are now under taliban rule. So it's it's it's tough to leave those people behind and see them under threat on the other hand There's a big part of me. That is so relieved to put an end to what seemed like an endless war in conflict in afghanistan. So i'm extremely profoundly grateful to all the men and women who served and and made the lives of the people in afghanistan better over the last twenty years who gave opportunity to women and children over the last twenty years. That didn't have it before. And now we're watching Some scary developments there and we'll continue to watch it and hopefully get those people out safely. Yeah i think that conflicted schilling what a lot of folks out there probably feeling. I'm sure there are a lot of military families that are relieve and a lot that are grieving because there was a lot of of life loss there and you know i think we to your point there are people still there and i think that we have a moral obligation to help them by any means necessary..
Was George Washington Egotistical? Historian Wilfred McClay Weighs In
"Now. Can you talk about how. Washington is sometimes portrayed by modern historians being egotistical person. Because he didn't wanna over even want to preside over the constitutional convention us kind of waffling on that right. Some people say that's because of his ego. I don't think that's right. I think it's because he didn't want to put his name behind something. That could have been destructive. You talk about that. How washington almost didn't actually agree to it. Yeah no he look. He he came. He came out of retirement Several times He he wanted nothing more at the conclusion of revolution than to go back his beautiful estate about bourbon. And and hang out there You know And having urged that peace and quiet but he he felt strongly that He the the country he owed in a dubious country he. He was very formed by sort of ideals of classical notions of virtue. Robin like cincinnati. The farmer who turned who does his duty in the blau or k. Tau andy elder. Well there was a wonderful play by. Joe savannah's About cape though. I think it's actually called. Keiko and that washington apparently saw numerous times and had shown to his head and performances put on for his troops numerous times at these critical points when morale was was going through the floor. And it's so that that was his notion he He could certainly have become king if he had wanted to. And the car do that. Is that the behavior in kansas. I don't think
Wet Notes - 7-18-21
"This is what notes here on scuba shack radio for sunday. July eighteenth two thousand and twenty one first up. Today is an update on the upcoming boston. Sea rovers clinic. Historically the clinic was held in the early part of march just before the start in the northeast dive season. The show actually happened in march. Two thousand twenty just before the country shut down it was probably the last scuba diving show before cove. It wasn't possible to conduct the clinic in march. Two thousand twenty one as we were still at a high point of covy nineteenth spread infections so the decision was made to move the show to the first weekend of october in two thousand twenty one fall in massachusetts. That should be pretty neat. Tickets are on sale now for the boston. Sea rovers to day clinic in danvers massachusetts. Right now the early bird special is still available. You can attend the daytime. Saturday and sunday clinic along with the saturday night. Film festival for seventy five dollars. You can pick and choose your options and that's a pretty good deal. Don't wait check out the boston. See your oversight for all the details and get your tickets now now. Here's something new to help you with your fish identification. It's something called name that fish dot com name. That fish dot com was created by a guy named jake easterling and he is the co founder of a company called scuba. School botox mission is to reduce the cost and time requirements to monitor coral reefs by using artificial intelligence autonomous underwater vehicles and citizen science. I guess and of course this work. Jake developed a database of fish and came up with the idea of taking people's underwater video footage and identifying fish in the video. If you go to the name net fish dot com website you can view short video on what the finished product looks like. Jake also has assured Tutorial on how to make a submission the site says it will accept dot m. p. four emo v dot j. peg in png files. Max file. Size is one hundred megabytes and must be at least seven hundred. Twenty p or higher processing time is one to five days the more fish more processing the rare species. The longer it takes to verify and if your quality isn't that good don't be don't need more time to process. There's a little bit of disconnect on pricing. Jake says into in his short tutorial that you can set any price you think is best but there's also a button that says it costs three ninety nine in any event. Why don't you just go out and take a look at name. That fish dot com. I recently hadn't really interesting email. Come across my desk a few days ago and it was from reef divers. If you're not familiar with reef divers they operate with the clearly came in resorts. Cobol coast on grand came and the little cayman beach resort and the beach resort. They're known for their valet diving. Well reef divers is expanding our operation in the caribbean to turks. Keiko's now they are partnering with east bay resort on south. Keiko's it looks like they plan to be up and running there by late. August east bay resort sits on a mile long beach and boasted. Every room has a beach view. To get south goes she'll need to fly into providence jalis and then you can take either a short air hop over or board the ferry. It's not that long of a ride resort officer an all inclusive option. That seems pretty good reef divers outstanding operator in the caymans so sure that you can look forward to superior valet service from nemo turkson. Keiko's as well so many places to go diving. What it dilemma. Just about every week. Get an update from michael light. Any contains various tips and tricks for better underwater photography plus they also provide some product updates but also in this email is some other interesting information last week. They introduced me to an organization called washed ashore and the articles title said using discarded plastic to save the ocean. Now washed ashore. It is a five. Oh one three or c three nonprofit arts and environmental education organization aimed at bringing to light the world's plastic pollution problem. Well how well washed ashore started by angela ponzi who is a lifelong lover of the ocean and after the death. Her husband from a brain tumor. She turned to the ocean for healing. What she also found was that the ocean needed healing as well so she turned her artistic talents into creating sculptures. That are marine-related using the plastic. That is washed up ashore and they do some spectacular sculptures. I was also amazed by the fact that they have over fourteen thousand volunteers. Working with washed ashore. These are not small sculptures. Either you can check them out at washed ashore and take a look at some of their work. You will be amazed well. I'm sure that we've all heard about the billionaires who are competing to go into space amazing stuff for someone who grew up at the start of the space race in the nineteen sixties. But there's also another race going on and that's the race to build the world's deepest pool at the top of the list. Right now is deep dive. Dubai located in nod al sheba. Which is fifteen minutes from downtown dubai. It's an amazing sixty meters deep. That's one hundred ninety seven feet and contains fourteen million liters of water or three point. Seven million gallons. The pools constant thirty degrees celsius or eighty six degrees fahrenheit. It is team doesn't abandon sunken city. Now that's pretty cool. They have an onsite hyperbaric chamber restaurant gift shop and dive shop. Put this in perspective. The other deep pools around the globe include. Why forty in italy at forty two point one five meters deep spot in poland at forty five point four meters and there's either one coming online or it's online and crom cornwall england. That's called blue vis at fifty meters deep. I wonder if there's some kinda limit on just how deep can build a pool. I'm sure we'll be amazed and finally today. Here's another message in a bottle story. this time. It comes from michigan. It seems that jennifer dour the owner and operator of nautical north family adventures of scuba snorkeling. Glass bottom boat company was cleaning a windows on her glass bottom boat in the cheboygan river when she spotted the bottle inside. The bottle was a message from ninety. Five years ago it read will the person who finds a bottle return his paper to. George morrow cheboygan michigan until where it was found. The message was dated november. Nineteen twenty six. Jennifer posted this on social media and george morrow daughter michelle who's now under seventies reached out michelle indicated that her father was probably eighteen years old when he put the message out. There sounds like the battle didn't travel very far. However now i wonder just. How many messages in bottles are out there. Well that's it for this edition of wet notes here on
"keiko" Discussed on 106.1 FM WTKK
"Keiko Day radio program. Uh, we have zero guests today. But tomorrow, Ross is like you're going to have three guests. You're gonna like it. So we got three guests tomorrow. So we got Mark Walker tomorrow. 805 right. But 705 we have Pat McCrory. All right. Good, good, good. And, um, the The folks with the folks from fair, which is the the immigration group that I do the radio row with every year by the way that's happening again. The things are returning normal. So hopefully I just hope that the moon bats with the giant signs that say racist with arrows pointing out in front of the hotel where we do the radio row. I hope they're able to come back. Because they really make the event. Especially when they won't talk to you, but they'll grunt at you. The last time it was the climate moon bats. And they were stopping traffic because the hotel where we do that at is right across from union station. So, um, it's a potpourri of fund. So we'll be doing that again this year. But this is an organization fair. Um, where? Who is on the front lines literally. Going down and doing the coverage from the border that so much of the media is wanting to ignore right now. Would you think anything's going on at the border right now? If you watch the standard newscast? Would you know that we just had The What was it the busiest month since Was the busiest month since the month proceeding, Reagan's amnesty or something like that. It's a crazy number. Yeah, That's the thing and the Biden administration is looking at stopping one of the few policies where they do turn people back. Now that Covid is dissipating. So that numbers should go up. And shockingly, I don't think the vice president during her travels down there was able to solve the issue. So we'll be talking to them. They're literally going to be down at the border, and so we'll get a bird's eye view of what's going on down there. All of that on tomorrow's show, which means smaller prep packet tonight, Ross She's excited about because he called the lid at 609 this morning. That Means said. All right, let me get to the psyche a story Oh, man. This is the Atlanta Ikea. Which I don't know where that is in in Atlanta, but I'm sure it's busy as all get out. So the Atlanta Ikea Put out a little statement. This was on this was on Friday. Tell me where you think this statement might get one in trouble? Okay, quote to honor the perseverance of black Americans and acknowledge the progress yet to be made. We will observe Juneteenth on Saturday, June 1920 21. Look out for a special menu on Saturday, which will include fried chicken, watermelon, mac and cheese, potato salad, collard greens and candied yams. Why are you shaking your head? Doesn't that sound delicious? Sounds delicious does sound good, But I'm saying I mean What do you say it? What? What was it's a bad move? Yeah, Yeah. Yeah, That's what everyone else not to Including a group of employees who staged a walkout. Look, here's the thing and you're in a little bit of you're in a little bit of trouble anyway, just being in the south and trying to do representative Southern foods because Most of the side dishes like college Mac and cheese, potato south. You will we all know, living here. This is the stuff that if you show up anywhere, those are the sides, right? You go to a to meet in a veg, uh, meat and two veg kind of place. Anywhere in North Carolina. Those are going to be the sides. Fried chicken is going to be available. I think it was the part where they lead with fried chicken and watermelon, so it so it Accentuated. Um The ability of people to go. What are you doing? And so, um, so they pointed that out and Officials with the cake came back and said, and let me just read this quote. We truly apologize that the menu came off as offensive as we were attempting to incorporate soul food into a menu that really doesn't normally included. And they released a revised menu. So Saturday Would be, um collards, corn bread, mashed potatoes and meat loaf. He probably would have been fine doing that initially. Sunday Fried Chicken, MAC and cheese and collards again. You might have been doing that. Here's the thing you just don't want to attach. A special menu to that you just have the menu. You don't put a press release out. With Tribal colors, background And the watermelon on one side of fried chicken on the other, because it's not going to go well. And it didn't go well, So now they're apologizing. You know what, though? I'll bet that that place is still a dumpster fire this weekend. Was the last time you read an Ikea. How many? What? Never? I've never been. You've never been to. And I've never been to like here. You're like a superhero. I mean, I do have my positives. You know, You've never been to an I never. How have you been able to slip that news? I don't know. Never as the wife ever suggested it. I mean, there's we had to go to Charlotte. If you want to go to one. I think she has once here and you said you had a hard fake heart attack. Understand? I'm not doing that, okay? I remember when they did have the riots down in Charlotte. I tried to get the writers to loot the Ikea. But there was a reason because they were looting the WalMart. The reason I want him to go next door and Luthi Ikea because that's where they were. Was because once they entered the K it would take three hours to walk the predetermined narrowed path. You mentioned that before the way you have to go through it, which would allow law enforcement enough time to go in and stage and just grabbed when they came out, so it was about capturing the criminals. But Yeah, That's the thing. Once you go in there, you got to loot the whole damn store in order. You can't just go in for like they would the walmart with like we're gonna still the apple products. No. No, no, no. You gotta go through kids, bedrooms. You're not even there for kids, Bedroom stuff. You don't have kids. Why do I get to walk through the kid's bedrooms? Sorry. I've had an extra to drag me down there. I think, Mark, you said something about how they have meet both right? They do that's okay. And if you can work out a deal where you just sit at the front and eat meatballs Because I think she wanted to go for the meatballs. She was like I heard the meatballs are really good. Yeah, they're pretty good. I think it's back when Randy was was indeed on the hall and Randy was like man, and we respect ready. She was like, you know, you gotta try the meatballs. Markets like we need to have the meeting. I'm like, Let's just buy meatballs from somewhere else. So function a big old pot of meatballs. Don't want to go. Well, yeah, you do that. You know they do You know, they have a meatball restaurant downtown and Riley. I had no idea. It's just what was amazing. They just serve meatballs..
A Conversation With Mary Anne, Woodworker
"Hey, everyone. Glad you could join me today. On this episode, we will close out our three part series on the Bainbridge Artisans Resource Network or barn. For Short we're going to talk to marry an a Woodworker who works here at Barn. We will talk to her about her experiences as well as how she came to the barn in the first place Maryanne. Thank you for talking with me today and welcome to its would. Thank you for having me. So what brought you here? I literally moved here because of the barn. I had left. Alaska and trying to find a location to move in the lower forty eight. And I had originally thought Portland and had lived in Ben briefly. and was looking for homes to buy and ended up. Simultaneously Looking for homes and Ben Oregon, as well as Bainbridge. And decided on Bainbridge off when I was googling different things about the island I noticed a a feed on the barn and is like, oh. That was the tipping scale and That that is what brought me to Bainbridge now had you been woodworking previous? Only dabbling because the woman I was always told I wasn't allowed in the woodshop which was really frustrating. And I had no interest in home economics and I got stuck making Keiko semester and it was completely boring. And then. I. Dated a man for many years who was an expert woodworker was he did marvelous work but he was kind of the same thing he he didn't like women in the Woodshop So. I would help design pieces, but I wasn't really involved in doing the woodshop. And then when I moved to Alaska, I found a really wonderful man who just would take two or three people in and. Teach them, everything he knew and. That was when I finally started doing some. Woodworking and then when I discovered the barn, I was totally excited because these guys at the barn are incredible. There are so supportive and the creative. Mix of everybody is just wonderful because we have professional would workers as well as novices. So it's been really really wonderful experience and he's like these are so important. Yes and I there's woodworking tends to be a solo thing we're in our basement. We're a garage by ourselves working and to be able to work around like minded people that have different skill sets than you. It's just a wonderful resource. It is the the collaboration between everyone is really what makes very special because it it it edges you along to maybe venture into different areas that you wouldn't otherwise do because this the person at the next table could be. Exploring. Exploring all kinds of different options with a poxy or doing different types of wood bending or whatever which You know maybe I haven't done before and so it's it's a wonderful opportunity for me to be introduced to it and then question whether I can maybe dabble in some of that as well. The other thing that's really nice about the Woodshop to is that we have monthly meetings and those monthly meetings they bring in some very good speakers and it's a lecture format. And you, you get your feet wet with areas that you've never dreamt of, and so that's been also very helpful. Those kind of things really stoke the fire. We all. You're here because you're maker and. You know all these people. Everywhere in Barn. It's that passion and to be able to bounce ideas off people or see what they're doing and going. Wow I want to try that and it just feeds. Yes For instance I am well, barn has the which has. Various. Different courses they offer as well. So you know there there's formal instruction in whatever you would want as it's offered and there is a a man that goes to the woodshop here who's a retired retired architect in designs these really amazing furniture pieces and now he's turning around and he's offering a course on furniture design Well. That's a perfect opportunity for me who's just really a beginner. To start dabbling an actual design and I, you know his wonderful instructor. So why wouldn't I? You know utilize that. So, it's very exciting how you can be pushed in different directions just based off of what other people are offering right now you've been coming here for two years. I'm close to two years. Yes. Almost the beginning of born as a institution. Talking to Mike earlier and he was saying this has been around benefiting for a couple of years. Yes but my can tell you more about the actual beginnings because. There was there was much more involved in a prior to the. Previous two. Yes. These kind of things don't just spring up right it's a process of years. Yeah, exactly. What are you working on right now? Well. I'm going simple now because I just needed a break from things. So right now making Swiss bread cutting boards. And prior to that, I, done matching Bedside tables which still pet every morning because they're just they're beautiful. I, love it. They were solid cherry and it's it was old tongue and groove, and I made my own slides for the doors and the doors are all dovetail and George. She's perfectly set in that little Nice Square and I just love it. So every morning I still pedic proud of it, and that's what's so exciting about it. You get you get end product that if you use I mean it's not I mean not speaking down of. Wall art and things like that which are beautiful and they serve a great purpose. But to be able to make something that you're using, you're cutting boards, tables chairs. Yes. It just it has a different feel to me. That's probably why I do it. But. What's your favorite project so far? Those tables. I'm probably most proud of those. Yes. I did. Oh. It was a a bit over adventurous here. Overzealous I first project here I named the Nemesis. Because I went. I I found a piece of throwaway. Kulla would that was beautiful and it was a live edge but nobody wanted it because it was all crumbling and falling apart. And I figured I could do something with it. So I went around the house trying to figure out where it could fit and I made this whole contraption where I had to first poxy the live edge Koa Wood. So to stabilize the falling apart pieces and then I superimposed on solid black walnut. And then built a black walnut cabinet to the left of it, and then I flooded the area of. of where the Koa wood was placed on top of the block walls and Walnut. So the whole thing looks like. A frog sitting on a riverbed because the Koa wood is like the riverbed in the knife flooded around it, and the whole thing is just a whole toilet paper in my bathroom. It fits above the toilet perfectly within the squarespace of the. Of The wall and it was. It was totally over my head as a first project but but that was the whole point. All the guys were here to help me out and it's not just men. There are some women to. So everybody kind of puts their own two cents in and. you know really the project was done by multiple people assisting me not just me.
Join Us in Prayer for Our Nation
"To join us for the call center. I'm John. Stonestreet, this is great for. Christians should be among those most deeply concerned about the divided state of our nation left versus right mass. No mass reopened versus stay at home virtual school versus in person raised politics police abortion religious liberty not to mention the remainder of what certain to be brutal presidential campaign. The issues we face range from essential to non-essential on essential matters, we should mourn deception and vowed to fight. For the truth on non essential matters we should mourn and hope to overcome division God's people can neither stay on the sidelines nor run away from the struggle instead knowing there is no hope other than Christ. We must ask onto mercifully powerfully mobilize us is people to advance that which is true and good if Christians are to speak with clarity courage and confidence and to be the. Of Truth and love and a world of Noise Echo Chambers, then we'll need to be prepared but even perfectly crafted arguments cannot replace Shut Colson would say the church being the Church speaking cannot replace being and to be the people that God calls us to be right now, we must rely on prayer. That's why each and every Wednesday morning between all the twelfth of November, the fourth, and that's the morning after the twenty twenty election the Colson center will be hosting a national prayer time the a Webinar we want you to join US each and every week to pray first and foremost for God's mercy. But that he would revive his church that he would bring about a renewal of righteousness that he would empower us to courageously offer protection for the most vulnerable to champion reconciliation across our deepest divides and that he would. Allow us to be instruments in the sustaining of religious freedom and the recovery of the family in our nation. Each prayer time will feature a devotional challenge and a prayer by Christian leaders such as Oz Ganesh Johnny Eric's Totta focus on the family President Jim Daly Woodside Bible Pastor Chris Brooks and watermark pastor Todd Wagner as well as at Stecher from the Billy Graham Center and the Heritage Foundation President Keiko James Now due to the limited capacity of zoom there will be limited live spots each week available to everyone who registers However, each weeks recording will be sent to anyone who registers so come to breakpoint dot org for more details and Fiji's Paul tells us that we don't wrestle against flesh and blood but against the rulers, the authorities, the cosmic powers over this present darkness against the spiritual forces of evil in heavenly places when people see us their enemies, it's difficult to remember that they aren't our enemies. So what we need to do as Paul Instructs this put on the former of God Faith Truth Righteousness Peace Salvation the word of God. And he says praying at all times in the spirit with all prayer and supplication keeping alert with all perseverance making supplication for all the Saints, and the Book of acts the earliest church activity we read off is prayer thousands of people from completely different backgrounds came together in one mind one art in prayer with one accord. That's what acts chapter one, verse fourteen and Chapter Two versus forty. Two seven says than what happened with the Holy Spirit moved in the world was never the same in fact, every spiritual revolution in history. With some kind of unified persevering prayer the very first outpouring of the holy. Spirit. In acts to the great awakenings, the businessman's revival and the Welsh revival story after story, you read the same thing people prayed God's spirit moved on the other hand every Christian history who was able to persevere and righteousness. Temptation or persecution without seeing revival in their lifetime they also did that through prayer. Our prayer of course cannot force God's hand but are only way forward is to seek his will together are purse can't control God. But we can invite him to change our hearts and minds including our own gods always working in our lives whether we realize it or not. But something powerful and world changing happens when people pray for God's spirit to move. The, Great Jonathan Edwards urged his fellow pastors to quote be much in prayer and fasting both in secret and with one another it is God's will. He said that the prayers of his saints shall be great and the principal means of carrying on the designs of Christ's kingdom in the world. When God has something to accomplish for his church, it is with his will that there should precede it the extraordinary prayer of his people Paul even tells us to pray for all things at all times for sesame chapter five specifically for our leaders both spiritual and secular as what the
Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata
"We're here today to talk about our June twenty twenty. Book Club, pick, convenience store, woman by Sayaka Murata translated by Jeannie Taffy, Takamori. Yes, so there's a divisive opinion on this book and I'm like really excited to dive into it. A lot of people were questioning our decision to pick this book as a lighter More I guess not dark read. Okay, but the thing is like our book club. Pick before that was a warrior woman and I. Think were your was darker than convenience store. Women didn't think it was that dark to be having me neither. Get into a little, are we? Are we the Weirdos here for? Okay, so without further ado, let's get into our. Our discussion. We want you start off with the Book Jack. Description Keiko is normal at school and university. People find her odd and her family worries. She will never fit in to make them happy. Keiko takes a job at a newly opened convenience store where she finds peace and purpose in simple daily tasks. But in Keiko Circle just won't do for an unmarried woman to spend her time stacking shelves and Green Tea as the pressure to find a new job or worse, a husband increases. Keiko is forced to take desperate action so the story itself is a slice of life. story about a convenience store worker toll from first person perspective from the main character Keiko and. I guess we can start with just the style of the store because it's very straightforward. Right and that's some so I don't know if you have this information, but is this the style of Sayaka Murata, or is this because of the condition of Keiko are someone who is like atypical? I have not read any of meritas other works because they happened been translated, but from what I've gleaned from interviews like she does have a very deadpan style to her writing. It is very straightforward like you said and a lot of her previous novels because convenience store women, while it's the first novel to be translated in the states. It's also her tenth novel. and. Yeah like that was really surprising to me. But her other novels are they kind of the same same themes like it's about nonconformity in Japanese Society AH take on gender roles and sexuality, and just like Japanese, societal issues on celibacy and a sexuality and. There are two books that have actually like I'm really hoping that they get translated 'cause the premise is. It's so bonkers There's one book called dwindling world I don't know the Japanese title is, but it set in dystopia where all procreation is made artificially and sex between a heterosexual married couple is is considered to be pretty disgusting like they. Oh, yeah, it's. It's not really a taboo, but it's more of like. Is this like Why are you doing that? A better way to like make children like. Why would you go through sex so? That's like a really interesting premise to me and then the other one. which definitely sounds like my jam? It's called sausage in Soussan, and it roughly translate to translates to birth murder, and this is also a dystopia novels and they banned. It's a dystopia novel where? Where a person who gives birth to ten children they they get to lawfully murder another person down. Yeah, right? About a royal. The Battle Royale I want this book to be translated immediately. Into a movie! Speaking speaking of like adapting it to a movie I. Think Convenience Store. Woman would work really well as a Japanese DEALLM. Or even just like a limited series like one of the Japanese. Soap operas or TV, shows are kind of like the BBC were they're pretty like they're short and sweet. Yeah, yeah, well well. The thing is like a convenience store. Women is such a short novel. It's only like. Because of the size of the hardcover book it's IT'S A lot smaller and very very cute. But in the smart in the smaller version, it's like around. Two hundred pages were like two hundred and fifty pages a in like a normal Let letter size paperback. It's like a hundred and fifty pages, so it's more of a novella than an actual novel. But this book was really really popular. It sold six hundred and fifty thousand copies in Japan and it won the Tugela prize.

Russell T Davies On Balancing Politics, Tech and a Multi-Year Family Saga in ‘Years and Years’
"The BBC HBO show years and Years Combines the politics economy and tech twenty nineteen and imagine how it all might evolve over the next fifteen years. Emma Thompson is in it. As a celebrity British politician with autocratic leanings but mainly the show follows a family as they deal with the world changing around them. Russell t Davis created and wrote years and years. He's also worked on the show doctor who torchwood and created queer as folk. He said the tech in years and years is like life. It's complicated just to show good and bad. I think some of the saddest moments. It's you have a world war on television and the little five six year old kids just staring into their phones playing their games. So yes there's bad stuff but let's talk about and yet there's very very good stuff. I tell you what to do when I made the choice to said to this around a family that came from one of the good sites of current tech which is very simply the. What's up group? I'm one of three kids two sisters. They've got two kids. Each were Nice family will like each of the wicked on but up until a couple of years ago. My nieces grow up to three years ago. I would've text them twice. Happy Birthday. Merry Christmas now. Oh my God. I went out the other night and I came back to the WHATSAPP group to fifty three messages on the group because because someone at cooked lasagna with butternut squash so yes. There's good stuff if you choose good ride the badge and they could right. You've got to get both because in the end. It's the technology it's it's the people. Well it's great because some of the tech feels really immediate like a headband. That projects a holographic sort of snapchat filter for your face that everyone can see in the physical world. It's futuristic but it's also completely realistic. Yes yes I think it was invented tomorrow. We'd all go and buy one. I mean I find this fascinating. I mean everyone my age. Everyone sends each others photos of themselves looking like a dunk. It will not count rash of instagram. Filters like what dog are you or what Keiko you. I'm certainly a Battenberg. I love those filters and I'm fascinated by the way we love those filters and so the moment someone events a filter you can see in the real world not just on your phone dot com. I will be new for my palace on the moon. Do you have conflicting feelings about tack or is it like so many things where it just reflects? The real world has interesting. I think it's both I think I have to be entertaining but entertain doesn't mean being glib or dust. I think I'm getting older. I think my stuff is full of warnings. Now to be honest it's funny. I'm now in the middle of an eddy of my next drama. Which is we'd each be. Oh Max over there which is about the AIDS crisis of the nineteen eighty s and leaked just watched an idea of an episode warning about viruses and we step out above. Does this virus on the loose? You can't them those lessons from History Indus- strangers no what a world. I was telling people that I'm taking a little bit of comfort in darker timeline but there is something comforting about the passage of time right like you fast forward in these episodes and increasingly terrible things happen but also people are still living their normal lives. Talk to me about that sense of perspective. Yes that's right. I mean it's it was quite hard. Showed a salad sleep with its concept of moving forward in time every episode moves forward a year but actually I sat there and saying doubt dry being questioned by fifty seven times set. That didn't know what else moves forward a year every episode Downton Abbey and so did upstairs downstairs many years ago. It's actually not former drummer. Have invented a sippy by this jobs. Going to the future by a year every absurd that had people scared but in terms of trauma tens of how the characters are getting on lobs. Who who's going out with? Who WHO's cross with? Who who loves to to take yearly jumps in that? It's a very simple dramatic device so I knew that would work. I had the confidence of those.

Kosher Giants Merge, Creating Possible Matzoh Monopoly
"<music> <music> ah from wonder i'm david brown and this is business worse daily on this tuesday august twentieth. The two biggest companies in the kosher food business are merging the tie up between giants keiko and manischewitz will mean the merged company will hold slightly more than fifty percents of america's twenty four billion dollar kosher market that could create a monopoly for an assesses like fell to fish in monson prompting a writer here at the daily news blog. The hustle to ask is a kosher monopoly kosher. Many shepardson keiko were icons in the jewish community both got their starts more than a century ago. The rabbi bear manischewitz founded his company in cincinnati in eighteen eighty eight to make macho the unleavened bread that jews eat during passover. The lithuanian-american rabbi was an innovator he took what had traditionally been around handmade bread and began making with machines and square both changes inches that kosher traditionalist at first resisted but his matsu caught on so too did manischewitz wine a cheap cloying drink that nonetheless this is standard at most passover sater's the company thrived over the years and expanded its offerings to include many other kosher foods from gal to fish to borscht it went public public in nineteen twenty three but was sold to a private equity firm in nineteen ninety manischewitz has changed hands many times since then and sold off pieces of it's kosher empire notably. It's manischewitz wine which the family sold in nineteen eighty seven keiko has both an equally storied history and an ever increasing share of the rapidly growing kosher market ho cost survivor eugene herzog who came to america in nineteen forty-eight began making kosher wine ten years later he drew on his family's family's ancestral winemaking tradition which began in the mid nineteenth century when the family supplied wine to the emperor franz joseph of the austro-hungarian empire like manischewitz cheviots the herzog's built their wine and food empire over the years the company now distributes about one hundred fifty different brands from soups tomato but it could never topple manischewitz position as the preeminent matsu maker it did however win the vast market for kosher grape juice which plays a significant role in orthodox doc families a few years ago manischewitz attempted to break keiko's monolithic hold on the great juice business by pairing with cheaper kosher certified version of welches grape grape juice but it didn't catch on terms of the agreement and manage shiva's motivation for selling were public at the time of production but business has become much more competitive over the years as now more than eight hundred thousand foods from hershey's chocolate to trader. Joe's tuna have have been certified as kosher with many more choices available manischewitz sales have been declining one question is whether kosher prices will increase under the merged company kosher food already costs more than non-kosher items but an expert quoted in the times says no keiko was a family business. He said sensitive sensitive to the market besides mana schevitz likely learned its lesson about overreaching long ago in nineteen ninety one hundred different management the company paid a one million in dollar penalty for manipulating the massive matsu market meeting kosher dairy on new york's lower east side leaders of manischewitz and two other companies notably not keiko had agreed to fix passover matsu prices. Surely that wasn't a step toward sacred seder from wondering this business wars daily. If you like our take his second give it a five star rating in a review on apple podcasts. It is the number one way other listeners buying this affects. I'm david brown back with you tomorrow.

You can control like family sleep and exercise Dan Nager men is a researcher and philosophy at Lancaster University. His research focuses on the connection between the medicalisation of negative emotions and political agency he he told us that the whole brexit anxiety thing was bogus from the get-go. There was actually very little evidence to support these claims about an increase in the number of people seeking mental health care a lot of these articles referred back to health blogs which were written by that they were really saying that their existing patients wanted to talk more about brexit which makes perfect sense right because that was the thing of that day and it's still is really and the reported consequences of not following professional advice you could spiral into serious mental disorder dig dug up evidence to support the idea that the Brits were having their legitimate feelings of anxiety about the future of their country D._C.. Legitimized being advised with goop like sincerity to search inside themselves for calm. He found one such video on Youtube. The whole video started with this man he was a remainder describing how upset he was over Brexit exit and how he had gotten into these arguments with people how ascension health to realize that I can't do too much about it is really what it is for me to just accept to go who offers and scrape Jacques Keiko on his diet. He wasn't really about the world. It wasn't about Brexit. It was about him so the problem is us. No need to take to the streets right. I asked what his advice would be to sufferers offers of the brexit blues to frame it in kind of a British say my advice to people would be to not keep calm and carry on with their lives but to really could be the emotional about political issues and to find ways of acting their emotions with other people

Gauging the Amazon Effect on New York and Virginia
"The Amazon effect is set to hit Long Island city in Queens, New York and crystal city and northern Virginia the locations, the company has chosen to split its second headquarters between and real estate firms are preparing for a real estate boom joining us now in our studio is Wall Street Journal reporter Keiko Morris Keiko, the Wall Street Journal has reported before the official announcement from Amazon that there was already speculative buying in some of those twenty finalists cities now that the winners have been chosen. What are you hearing from real estate firms in Long Island city and crystal city, you're hearing that there's a lot more inquiries people positioning themselves to basically get a lot of information very quickly. So they can act on it. This is regarding more of the commercial real estate offices, retail hotel, and so forth. But there's also a whole lot a happening. My colleague, Josh barb anelle wrote about this on the residential, siding and condo. Oh by and that's you're seeing that people go into contract, and and trying to close a lot faster. In fact, he had a story about the flurry of purchasing condos. I think over four days there was one hundred fifty condos went into contract or they had deals on. But in terms of the commercial side, you are seeing a lot of folks they're getting texts like if you're an owner of a property. Well, actually after each report that Amazon was homing in on these two places real estate brokers owners were getting texts from folks inquiries about their property. What are you going to do with it? And so clearly there's a lot of interest there and brokers also got text from folks who are outside of the industry typically saying I'd like to place money in Long Island city. So I'm glad you separated out office space versus residential because of big complaint from people who aren't happy about Amazon. Coming to where they live is thoughts about rising rent prices or the affordability of continuing to live in Long Island city or crystal city, for example, what can you tell us about the vacancy rate for office space, and then the residential concerns that people are expressing in terms of office vacancies both of these places. Crystal city and Long Island city had significant vacancy rates, you know, they were up there. Eighteen percent. That's that's fairly significant for different reasons. But Long Island city has been trying to accelerate its commercial development kind of catch up with a lot of the residential development. That happens over the last more than a decade, and I would say even for decades, the city has tried to boost commercial development and business growth in this area. And they've been making strides, but it's still coming along taking its time. And then crystal city was hit by some of the government drawing back and realize. -ment of certain services, and that's a sector where a lot of government agencies were were tenants and so- crystal city was in the midst also of this transition in trying to I guess redevelop and reposition itself as a place sort of modern, you know, with retail housing try to make it more vibrant, so Amazon coming along certainly exceleron for both of these places in transition will accelerate that process, I believe for the commercial side, and certainly for housing and residential definitely kick up demand in that area. But Keiko what does that mean for pricing? So obviously, the existing owners and investors and folks who are looking to get in are hoping that Amazon coming and the influx of other businesses that they're likely to bring will help boost.
