I know people can't see this but it's got the for the almost the same first line so i was. I would nurse my son and then be riding on in that. Little airbnb is is where i started on. That was just kept working on it and it took me vikes six months or nine months or so to put together And then get my query ready. So i started it in that summer and then the following spring i want to say i got my first offer representation for wonderful so i don't wanna get too far ahead before we talk about your newest book which is how moon flint is fell in love with the universe. So as we start talking about this Can you give me a a synopsis of what this book's about foodie row chip romantic comedy featuring a charming that offer mexican american teenager when. That's what i try to say. And so what was the idea. What was that spark that got you started writing this newest book knowledge meant i did read the acknowledgements. And if you weren't going to mention it. I was going to bring it but yes. I read your acknowledgments. Oldest does a standard question. I ask but i happened to read the acknowledgement. And so if you want to share the story you can if you wanna make people to read the acknowledgments for it. That's fine i can say so i i and my heart. I want to write a book about robots like. That's one of my dreams since two thousand twelve. When i had this idea sized i was like being a dallas. I have another book on. I had another book on contract. And as i can do my robot book and i started writing a book and actually were thirty. Thousand words I have that notebook somewhere here of a book. It's a cyborg robot circus stat in historic mexico. I read all these books and for research and it just it just did not work. I i wrote it out in thirty thousand works and i'm like this is not working and so i took a walk and i was feeling really bombs about thirty thousand words. Just trump and i stopped his two young women taking pictures of each other or maybe selfie is in front of like this brick wall and i looked at them and they reminded me of me and my sister. Now's like wow like what. If we had had social media growing up and i started to think about how our self esteem what if been affected how people would have responded to us versus our cousins who are white passing and House like got this idea. Instead of a traveling circus in an historic mexico. It was contemporary road trip of influencers. So moon was in the original book. She i took her into this. Contemporary their santiago was also in the cyborg circus. I took him in the contemporary at but the newer developments were star. And then the mother. So it's an amazing like between because you've been saying that much of the plot was taken from the robot manuscript. And i would like i'm so interested in this robot manuscript because i can't understand how that became came. What sounds like a very kind of straightforward but yet nuanced and and Interesting contemporary yeah. That's that's fantastic now because you kind of mentioned with developing moon You mentioned with your debut. And you also mentioned kinda that i Book that you tried to query ounce in agents that there was always sort of in what. I'm hearing from the three Is that. there's always some kind of supernatural scifi fantasy elements whether to robot whether it's aliens so is that something like is that kind of just where your mind goes when you're thinking up ideas and situations and characters you wanna live with and write about.

"This is what book hooked you actually and thanks for listening. This week. i'm talking to raquel was who's a sophomore book. How moon fuentes fell in love with the universe is out now from simon interest for books for young readers now in this episode. Kellen i get into. her journey. Started out as a visual artist and how she ended up finding her way to writing through the use of poetry. Great conversation so. I hope you enjoy and listening to so cal. What book hooked you. It was christie's great idea from the baby's club series by anna. Martin i remember how although is when i read it but that was the first book i remember. I had to be like every single one of the series that i get my hands on on. I logged i still. I still remember it very clearly. Now we didn't. We didn't have a lot of money growing up. But occasionally i would get a babysitters club book as a present like for birthday. And i would like breed them over and over and over again till i basically had them memorized. So that's probably why. I remember them so well. And my first attempts at writing china right babysitter clubs fan fiction. That's and was a reason why christie's great idea is kind of the one from that series that sticks out for you just that it's the first one i think i'm just a made have not been the one that i read i but that's what i remember is starting starting without on south and so by the sounds of it with the babysitter and beyond it sounds like In your young life you were You very much flocked books. You an avid reader. Am i assuming that correctly. Yeah actually i resist reminded of this. Recently i went out of town with my mom. We visited my grandmother is Burks town on the border. And like when i'm traveling i get over stimulated overwhelmed really easily by everything So it's a lot worse traveling It's hard to retreat. On from the stimulus so Also i live with chronic migraines which makes it worse because they the brightness millstones can be very pain fall a instill in order to cope. I read and i have a specially traveling. I checked with my kindle. And i ride and i think like three or four novels last week and my mom got really irritated with me and she tells me the same since Telling me since i was little. Which is you re too much to read too much. Why are you still reading. My mom trying to survive right now. So yes i. When i was little she would take my books away to punish me so he had. It was like my great love since i was little so reading. It sounds like was and still is sort of this comfort. Place that you can carve out for yourself Does that does that. Resonate doesn't make sense when you agree with that. That's the comfort room. And in the books i was reading war romance books. And so there's his guarantee of a happily ever after and which makes any anxiety. I'm experiencing like in other parts of my life. I don't mean to transfer it to this book. i'm reading. Because i know it's gonna work out so and then but i'm always interested especially for people that write for young people when you were a young person because you had a childhood says that sounds very much Centered around books. How did your relationship to reading change when you entered kind of your teenage years for some it kind of falls off because adolescents. They get busy social life in school and things like that others. It's still there. But they're reading. Focus changes as far as what their likes. Aren't things like that so for for you as a teenager. What was your reading life like I still read a lot. Maybe not as much as when i was in grade school or middle school but I attended a dreyfuss. School of the arts in west palm beach my major was visual art and i specialized in painting and so i guess i maybe focused less on books that focus that create a focus shifted to visual art. I yeah. I even went to art school and college for a little bit or an art college. I should say and I did some illustrating later on Painting sculpture ap classes portfolio review days etc was like very intense but also very cool. So because you Were creatively focused. When but you know working in different mediums working in visual art. At what point did the idea of being a writer Kind of enter your life. I was in the fourth grade and it was mysterious class. And i just said i want to write books. I wanna be an illustrator and it's really cool because actually attacked him miss berry and she has. My first book was really cool. My mom face time. I got to see her. So that's worth great. Yeah it's awesome and you know in fourth grade. You know that was a dream that that we're working towards because you know every kid around that age is ask what they want to be what they want to grow up I wanted to be. I think a veterinarian at that time so of course. I am not a veterinarian. I became an english teacher in educator and it sounds like you kind of Maybe keep state a little bit closer to that dream. But was there a time then in adolescence or adulthood in young adult life where you kind of went back to that dream from a fourth grade and really had your motivation are you were more driven to wanting to be an author like i said. I went to art school for high school. I'm on. I attended an art school in college but i for all kinds of reasons. I dropped out and attended a community college in a journal. A and then. I transferred a Near west florida where.

And then i'm told i have this and the doctor explains well. It's just one of those things. It's genetics there's nothing in your diet. Not that you were eating bad or anything. This is just something that was gonna happen to you. And i okay. Well how do i manage this. And he said well. I would advise you to not eat for us. Don't he. this greasy food. A lot of latin food is not going to be very favorable for your house and that was just heartbreak because i felt that time that without realizing you know he was really saying.

And you you do a nice job of balancing the humor with the story And so i just loved it. I thought it was just a great little bit an hour. I would've loved it to be longer But that's because i'm a springsteen fan and i'm used to three and a half hour shows right so like more more more i think you cut it perfectly. I'm just saying i.

And maybe it was just the subject i had was very very easy to work with but surprised that reiner was as open to me giving me complete access Because yet he's a public figure but he's also pretty guarded He's a little intimidating but he kind of gave me free rein in free access into anything. I wanted to ask him or have him discussed. He did it so that was surprising. that he was is open and then also surprising where the people that agreed to talk with me on camera about it and how open and honest they were. You doubt. The incident didn't hold back on his thoughts about having a radio station covers sports. Twenty four hours. He didn't work. Galloway was pretty open and honest on his opinions on the ticket and you know his relationship with greco. That was surprising. What was the other question. I forgot well. Did you learn anything about yourself. Doing this cross I guess just to be confident in what you know you can do. I mean i guess i lost. I lost that vision last summer when mark. Reiner said yeah.

"So i don't call it solo stuff like imagine. That's the first song ever learned on the guitar. And i had the tattoo that says. Imagine because it's the first song on learned on the piano. Okay in unbeknownst me. I was actually playing the cord. One quarter of it wrong for like fifteen years. I was in a recording studio in time display with one of my friends who since passed away but he said hey you realize you're playing net or of thanks for fifteen years but anyone out there that wants to learn how to play. The piano started the beatles. Everything's in the key of c. I'm not gonna say it's easy but anything in the keys. A little easier master on piano not very nice the that that's very cool So did you did you continue. I mean you mentioned elvis. And you mentioned the beatles did you as you're going to school In north texas. That's such a big music school did. Did you expand anything for local musicians or did you is sampling of that. Yeah i guess being a product of denton you honest learn who norah jones is. Her dad ravi shankar who jammed with george harrison on the beatles quite a bit but exit music classes at north texas. I learned a lot of classical music. Okay on different areas of the classical scene. And then i was by no means talented enough to even step foot in the one o'clock jazz fan but when i had music classes at always the warming up in they would do like the simpsons song a bunch of fun hop songs or cartoon songs but it will sound so masterful because they're the one o'clock jazz band. I guess i was more introduced to jazz. The north texas music scene than any other type of music a brave combo obviously from denton Rubber band so yeah. I got to see them at a my a good family. Friend of mine has been fiftieth or sixtieth birthday. Party in brave combat showed up. And they were fun polka. Yeah they I've talked about him a couple times. they are. They are just when you hear about it. You think it's oh. They're kind of a gag ban but they are just so talented musically and they are so much fun. You're you're right. They just they are perfect party banned. Yeah they were. They were fun absolutely all right. So you've kind of shared a little bit you've gone through Why do you think why why were you. Why driven to sports as you were going to doing broadcasting both in tv and radio. What about sports supposed to you. I think he made a good point earlier. There's no consistency in your life. When you grow up in a different town every three years you have to kind of hold onto something. That is a constant in your life and for me. It was sports so it didn't matter what part of the country. I was living in at the time every sunday. My dad and i would watch. Nfl football together and We were living in near candlestick park during the nineties. And so my dad was a cowboys fan.

Or whatever musician or singer He's my all time favorite but also like the beatles to which they say you can either be it'll span or elvis fan and i'm a big fan of catalogs talk. The just you was is it. Because it reminds you of your father for elvis or just you like the music. I like the music i mean i guess i guess yeah you grow up and your parents play music. Can you find it appalling boring. But i can get a pretty good taste in music. Very nice good You know as we are prone to do on this you know. We're going to throw in some springsteen trivia I don't know if you know this. But the song fire that the pointer sisters recorded Originally wrote for elvis That's bruce absolutely road in. He wanted because he felt like elvis needed a hit and the rumor. The story and i think it's legend now is that it was actually on the way to elvis in seventy seven when elvis died. Are you telling me always never is music so by the way the great mac davis just passed away. Who wrote some of elvis's greatest stuff yet. Who did scotty more were two of my favorites. Oh yeah No i we. I will not bore my audience but acting. I'll make a note to edit this out because they don't wanna hear this story again but you know. Hey this is for you and i So My son's now thirty one big p. one as well and love the film by the way he was excited. We were gonna get to talk he went. You're not with me Thank you for attending by the way. I was so much fun and We we used to do the story when he was younger. we would listen to kid critic in the morning and the hardline on the afternoon.

Paper Mario: The Origami King reviews are online

"Paper, Mario! The Origami King reviews are online and it's reviewing pretty well. It is currently sitting at an eighty four on metacritic at the time of this writing, which is the exact same metacritic review score as ghost of Suma. Those games really couldn't be more different, but they're going head to head this week because they share a release date comic book, Dot Megan Peters gave the game, perhaps its most positive review, giving it a five out of five, and wrote while the Origami Canfield formulaic at times. Times. This entry does more to re imagine the franchise the not it won't impress fans who were hoping for a larger RPG focus, but it's charming characters and story will fans hooked paper Mario has never felt so fun than with the Origami King and it's lighthearted. Feel is the perfect thing for Gamers to sit with this. Summer Sam Leverage from Games radar gave the game a four point five out of five, and wrote the latest paper Mario. Title is a joy to exist in an excellent. Excellent story, charming characters, and the ability to team up with your oldest foes makes the Origami, King a triumph? Yes, it may not be the new thousand year door RPG, but it's something special. That should be celebrated into the show and genuine personal friend Cereal Vasquez wrote a review for Gamespot gave the game an eight and wrote with a newfound combat system that steals the show offers a novel take on turn based combat. It's winking nodding. Adventuring shines brighter. Its world and characters might not be. Be The series best, but it's able to consistently throw left turns good gags and smart surprises at you. Each piece of the Origami King elegantly fits into its whole, taking its irreverent flair to new heights. The paper Mario Series has recently shown that being clever and being smart or two different things, but thankfully it's once again managed to both feel free to direct all your compliments on my flawless surreal impression to the gaming ride home, twitter account another friend of mine game informer's Ben Reeves is. Recently the new host of the game informer show podcast. Go listen to that gave the game a seven point seven five, and wrote as a series paper Mario consistently explores new concepts and mechanics, which is exciting, but it comes with plenty of risks. Origami kings biggest chances don't pay off a satisfying way. I enjoyed Mario's hijinks, and all the misfits he encounters, but the new ring based Action Needs Refinement I hope paper. Mario's next twist on combat can rise to the same level as it's humor. There you go. Kyle did what you asked now. Please time my family. Let them go, please. What else do you want ideas? Cam Shea expressed some similar disappointments, but still had positive things to say about the game, giving a seven and writing the Origami King is a truly likable game, despite the shallowness of its new spin. On gameplay, it's characters are winsome. It's visual design is gorgeous. It's world is fun to explore. Explore and it storytelling is outside the box and playful at the same time. However, it could be so much more. Combat is largely unfulfilling, and your journey as a whole lacks meaningful choices for a series with RPG routes. That's a real shame. EGM's Michael Gaurav shared one of the more negative reviews for the game giving it a three out of five and writing despite everything paper Mario the Origami King is A. A charming game I wanted to fully explore every area of the mushroom kingdom I wanted to find every towed. I wanted to do everything except actually engage with the game's combat system in trying to write basic rules with every outing. Intelligent systems keeps fans of the franchise on its toes, but that can also start to distort the identity of the series itself. How can you perfect a formula if you're constantly pouring out? Out and starting again by the way from the time I started putting this segment together and up to now sitting in my recording booth and recording it. The metacritic score has actually dropped down to an eighty one

The Grand Canyon

"Have you ever heard of the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon is the Whitest Canyon in the world and located in Arizona which also happens to be my home state. It's also considered one of the seven natural wonders of the world. The Grand Canyon is two hundred seventy seven miles long up to eighteen miles wide in over six thousand feet deep in places. It's very colorful a combination of reds browns whites and many other colors because each of the different layers or strata were formed at different times during the Earth's history. The Earth is very very old so the Grand Canyon is made up of different rocks from its two billion year old history early on the Grand Canyon was actually a mountain which overtime sunk down until it was flat. Then is the earth shifted. It became a canyon and over a very long period was even underwater. Eventually a river started flowing through the Canyon which is now known as the Colorado River. The water in the river was full of rocks. So over. Millions of years the river acted like sandpaper. Shaving down the canyon this is called erosion today. When you look at the Grand Canyon you can see the different layers in it similar to a layered cake. Some of the layers are white. Limestone other layers are filled with shells from was underwater and the upper layers are dark and reformed by a volcano after the Grand Canyon was formed into what it looks like today around three thousand years ago native people who now call the ancestral publians live near the Grand Canyon. They built homes out of stone and farmed corn squash and beans. They made carvings and paintings on Canyon walls which is one way we know they live there. Another group who lived there were called the co Nina for the ancestors of the modern Yuma Havasu Pie and who a lot by people who still live around the Grand Canyon. The native people call the Grand Canyon. Cab which means mountain on its side. The ancient people believed the Grand Canyon was a holy place and often visited for miles around to experience. It's wonder after Europeans discovered the new World Francisco Vasquez Coronado and a group of Spanish explorers were in the area. Searching for the fabled seven cities of Cipolla in fifteen forty Coronado ordered captain Garcia Lopez de Cardenas and. His soldiers to explore the area they and their Hopi native guides where the first European to see the wonders of the Grand Canyon. They were amazed at its size and fastness. Two hundred years passed until another European visited the canyon in seventeen seventy six to Spanish priests Francisco Dominguez and Sylvester de Escalate into explored southern Utah and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and the eighteen fifties. They were followed. By Jacob Hamlin a Mormon explorer sent by Brigham Young to find a way to cross the river. They made friends with the WHO a lot by tribe and found the crossing discovered by the Spanish priests which later became Lee's ferry. A theory is a place where a flat boat helps wagons and people cross the river then in eighteen sixty nine major John. Wesley Powell led the first expedition down into the Canyon. He had set out to explore the Colorado River and the Canyon. They wrote down the river on a boat and survived the dangerous rapids and finally ended up in what is now known as MOAB UTAH. John Wesley Powell later became famous for the founding of the Boy Scouts of America. In one thousand nine hundred three. President Theodore Roosevelt visited the Grand Canyon and marveled at its beauty. Teddy Roosevelt was known for his love of nature and spent much of his time outdoors in the Grand Canyon. He did everything he could to help. Preserve its natural. Wonder he worked to make it a national monument and believe places like the Grand Canyon should be preserved so people all over the world can enjoy it. All Roosevelt was president. He formed the National Parks Association to help. Save places like the Grand Canyon today. The Grand Canyon is one of the most famous places to visit in the world with about five million visitors every year. Who come from all over to see and explore it. Most people just come to look out over the vast canyon. I've been there a few times with my family. It's about a four hour. Drive from US where we live near Phoenix Arizona. The last time I went we brought our foreign kids who also looked out over it in awe. We had to hold them close to us because the canyon is a very steep drop below which made us very nervous. When I was in high school our family and a group of other families hiked down into the part of the canyon known as Havasu Pie. We drove there early in the morning and had all of our camping gear and food loaded onto the back of mules. Then we hiked about four hours down into the Canyon at the bottom of the trail. The huge picturesque Havasu falls. You can swim at the falls. Jump off cliffs and hike further into see and swim in the waterfalls. Our trip was very fun but took a turn for the worse when one of the days I slept on Iraq and twisted my ankle pretty bad the next day we were supposed to hike out so my close friend. I got up early and started hiking. I live most of the way. Even up the steep switch-backs. It was a rough hike out but the waterfalls and swimming holes made it worth it anyway along with hiking people take helicopter tours over the Grand Canyon love to raft the Wild Colorado River. They also take horseback tours down into the Canyon. And it's very popular. Hike it from Rim Durham. By sisters in their friends. Do this recently. Another main attraction is the Grand Canyon. Skywalk which lets you walk on a glass bottom path out over the canyon so you can look at the drop far

Shannon on Brady says he's not wearing a blazer to the Super Bowl next year

"Tom Already did make it to super bowl. Fifty four but only on the field before kickoff as a member of the NFL one hundred all time team and yesterday Brady posted a picture picture to his instagram story. With a caption. That said I am not wearing a blazer to the super bowl and hexed years so eric where will on radio Tom Brady will be right in New England league. Really definitely. He's not he's not going anywhere. I mean I don't see Robert Kraft letting that happen. Think about this guy has played his whole career in New England his whole career. And you might say that Bill Belichick take wants to get rid of him or they. They don't see eye to eye whatever he does but but the but the owner. That football is Robert Kraft. Robert Kraft loves Tom. Brady and Tom Brady has done so much for for New England for the National Football League. I mean really. I mean you might hate the Patriots. I never like to pay. Even when they didn't have Tom Brady cheating. They were so but anyway He's done he's done so much I just don't see him. I don't go anywhere I really don't I can't I can't picture it. I see he bill belichick leaving before Tom Brady would need I. And that's that's what I would see because I feel like that you know he had a chance to keep Jimmy G.. Bill Belichick did not a chance that he didn't they didn't give him a chance to keep. They got rid of him. And I think that really like this that would have been my chance I I I. I had another dynasty but still the Patriots are a very good football team. This year. They had a great defense. People WanNa best defense. They had a special teams I'm the one that wants I. I got to say Tom Brady. COTTAM S man. I mean big. I mean it's the truth. He got to play play football but he still plays at a high level. They're in a division that they should win. It's not a tough division. They win that division. So they'll be what they were twelve and four this year. They probably two for next year. Eleven and five thirteen thirteen three or something like that so. I don't see Tom Brady going anywhere I I don't see that. I don't believe he plays in New England skip I I don't I can't definitively pinpointed. Plays that. He'll go but I think in order for him he has to go to a place that gives him the best opportunity when the Super Bowl. It's just not about getting out of New England to show you know I I just needed. A change of scenery is about winning Super Bowl. He has to win one coach Belichick First Super Bowl and win. Who is the winner is a simple and ask ask if this was a race between bill belichick and Tom Brady because the days that we're in the same we're having the same discussion? And you have the discussion two or three times next year. WHO's most responsible for the success and so say race the first one to super bowl fifty five to sixty is the winner? And that's what he's GonNa come down to now can he goes. I mean he's looking at it okay. Who has a good outfit? Who has good offensive line? Because he's not mobile like these young quarterback that's up and coming who has never was ause right right early more now that you've got to be forty three that's true who have offensive line wide receivers and a defense so Adams give honestly. I don't see a Peyton. Manning situation paid many got the perfect storm you had. You had a young dicker. You had Julius Thomas No Sean Marino Title Office of line the Wind Got Vasquez from San Diego. You sit and then you bring in a key to leap remember the Denver team albeit with Tim Tebow they had one they won the division. All of a sudden you get to step into a team that won the division in a playoff game and I say okay here we go so now. We're looking at okay. People mentioned the raiders. Daddy make the play the chargers they didn't make the playoffs Chicago. They didn't make the playoff. So all the teams that you know that that sounds reasonable. They didn't make the playoffs. Now you may dimension on Monday. Maybe they said Okay Jimmy you got to go. We're GONNA take Tom Brady for two years. Because we believe at the quarterback position is that where we're that's where we're we're lacking yup. I believe we can get there okay. That would be an ideal situation. I don't see that happening but I just I just think there's been too much blood would bad blood between coach Belichick and talk now. I just give you know. They had the centennial team and coach. Belichick said it was great to just you know shoot. You'll be able to say it with Tom and talk football and they were all took a big picture with all the page format pages but Tom knows he knows you try to get rid of me while are you. Over

And that's why I wanted to kind of catch up with everybody in our friends and see what's going on. And you know, we've got not Mariotti check in with us in a moment to talk about his input on that letter that everyone's talking about former federal prosecutors who have joined together to say that if they had this kind of evidence against any other defendant or suspect or someone that they were investigating. They would charge them with obstruction. But because. President Trump is the president of and the DOJ has a policy of not indicting a sitting president. They that was why Muller chose not to. He also of my understanding of it is that they didn't want to make a decision because they didn't they didn't want to put it in the report because it didn't want to take away the president's ability to have his basically his say his day in court. So we're gonna take him with Renato in just a few minutes coming up after the news.

"Listening to the Patti Vasquez show will be here to one AM when we turn it over to Nick de got a lot of great things coming up tonight. We're gonna find out why LaTasha Sanders wants to be the alderman for the sixteenth ward. We've been talking to a lot of candidates for the last couple of weeks. And I realize it's a great way. To learn more about the neighborhoods that make up our city. We're excited to talk to her just a little bit later. We're gonna talk to a lease swoops. Who is a she's a multifaceted artist who has really found a way to build this incredible landscape of Chicago, visually and artistic way that I'm so excited talk to her about how she built this presence on social media that so many people are like how do I go viral, and we're going to talk to our friends from Kazuki? They've got some Rahman what better comfort food than to have some Rama noodles in this incredibly frigid, wet weather jam algorithm. Come in and talk about his road to recovery after being addicted and losing himself to that to that path. And we'll also take a far we want to find out what you guys think about some of the news over the weekend. And honest started off with a headline that I saw earlier today on my friend tens on his website or on her page about it being national hugging day. I trip over that. Because a lot of people who maybe hesitate when someone comes at them with a big hug. I I know I know that you are one of those people. But I feel like I just force my hugged onto you know, you don't. So I welcome them and invite them. But it took me I'm one of those people that I actually had to learn how to relax when people want to hug me. Well, it can be a little awkward. Yes. You know, especially if you don't know somebody in the randomly just coming up and giving you hugs, but people that know me know that I I loved to give hugs and especially in jujitsu, aggressive, cuddles are always one of my favorite things. But I think there's nothing that feels better than hugging. Somebody it's at it's an embrace that that power of like kindness energy. It's the energy row. Are you a hugger row? Coleman is our producer tonight. Hello, hi row. This is James naughty. Doing good. How are you? How do you feel about hugging? I am. A little bit of a little bit of a hugger sparing hugger must bearing hugger. Yes. Be careful with these hugs nowadays. You know, some people just you can't get too close. Well, I think it's got to be confusing for some people to because they're like, well, when am I supposed to hug when is it? Okay to hug very especially fan, right professionally. I remember when I used to go to Los Angeles every month there were there were people who will give you a kiss on the cheek there'd be people. I wouldn't know if we're going for a handshake or hug, so I just wait. You just wait. Yeah. Oh, yeah. We always I mean growing up in an Italian family. It was like kiss on the cheek hug like that's what that's what you always did. But now it is a little bit of a different world. So I think people are a little more hesitant. But you know, hugs are just it's it's great. I always go in I mean professional or now when I'm meeting people like I'm just like, I'm a hugger. And there you go. Do you ever have that moment where you hug someone? You know, you you're meeting with a few people. You hug the person that you know? And then it's awkward because anybody else, right? We'll build up to when I first met Charles Charles Turk. I hugged the two guys that I knew in the group which were Nick, and Dan, and then I go we'll work up to hug. So I think that's one way to put it, isn't it, right? Because he also wants that. Right. Right, right. You don't know if that person wants to receive the hug exactly so you kinda gotta be on the same page, but you know, I think in this world. Now, we need some more love and some as many hugs as we can get. But it really does that energy. I think nothing really can make you feel better than I am a good hug, especially with somebody. You've known care about. Yes. And you know, there are people who like, oh, they seek out hugs. And that's that's great. There's actually I think there are people who are seen this article about the woman who gets paid to cuddle. I I saw this the other with it rose show or somebody was talking about this. I saw this somewhere. Okay. And someone got paid. Maybe it was windy city live. That's where I saw it. And yes, she cuddles. Yeah. Yeah. Coddle? Yeah. That was something different ways. But I I'm guessing there has to be some paperwork involved her clients that this is. This is just an energy thing. If you have trouble napping. Maybe because I don't know. So did how did you celebrate national cut cuddling huddle? Which is a national hugging day. Yeah. National cuddling day seems have more private situation. Yeah. That's seems a little bit different. Yeah. I gave hugs. To everybody saw everybody. I saw everybody. I know. This is true. You did it. Okay. So I owe you a hug. The hug Sino. Jane wells is one of the Cutler's that you are referring to an actual company is called cuddle up to me. And there are several professional Cutler are they Chicago land area, Cutler's or these all over the country. This is a franchise. This is Portland, Oregon. They seem like they would be Cutler's in Portland, Oregon. Yeah. I would be really good at that job. But now that I could do that if you could establish parameters. Yeah. Layout the guidelines. I think that's a good idea. I mean, I know how to defend myself if I needed. Yes, that's true. I think that all professional Cutler's should also be trained in jujitsu. See I connect with those people help them out a little bit. That makes a lot of sense to me dies. We're hanging out with Jen Zanardi, it's motivational Monday. I want hear how her New Year's is going, and if she's talking to a lot of people who still are trying to work on their news resolution, and if you've if you've kind of faltered a little bit to forgive yourself and to carry on so a little bit about that.
