See the harry styles concert allen and megan and i can already tell that we're gonna have some fun stories to To hear because i was looking at Megan's instagram feed in. Guess look like first off. your seats. Were better than allen. Kind of made them out to be ellen. Made your seats out to be bad sees. They were good seats and areas. Aisles is kind of Awesome and the fact that like a lot of new artists aren't really doing these massive stages to one end where they're doing more like circular middle the arena stage's so everybody gets a good veal at some point yes and we needed of harry styles. Don't wing is he as attractive in person as he is not in person real. It is more attractive in person. Yeah because he has the circular stage half the time he's staring at you get to start his face halftime. He's staring meal and you get an equally good deal. So and the crowd was crazy last night. Where you guys part of the craziness the hysteria and screaming meghan. i are both in our twenties. We are young and we felt so all. I pulled a larry david at one point and tried plugging my ears. And oh my loud. It was so much fun. But yeah there was a point where i looked at ellen and i genuinely like i felt the screaming in my lungs. Do you know that like they can feel it through my body. And i was like i don't belong. I forgot what that scream sounded like with a year and a half of no concerts. I until i opened my instagram stories last night and saw everybody at the concert and i just forgot because even billy eyelash this weekend we saw her but it was a mix of old and young crowd. It was casino gamblers. It was everybody. This was the first true like teenage girl concert. We've had in a couple of years. That feels like scream loud. And they scream high so high so high pitch. I don't even know if how he was singing. Because i couldn't hear him in anybody's actual videos all. I saw girls screaming right. Lisa i did learn lesson and ellen. I should've dressed up in costumes. Girl got serenaded for wearing a banana. Kosh then so i went out to dinner with my sisters last night and we were in ferndale and there were so many tables of like moms with their kids getting ready to go down to the concert and it was so funny because the moms were just sucking down during operation. How many dads were there. And how many dads were in the crowd like dancing with their daughters like it was fun to watch in the dads that were at the tigers game clearly and then when we left of any last night. We're all standing outside waiting for their daughters who went to the harry. What the great idea. Yeah that's an awesome idea. I actually knew somebody that was going to take their their daughter their concert and then they were going to go to the casino to watch monday night. Football to watch the lions game and then come back. What what time did the concert. And what time did you guys get out of there after eleven. Which for me is normal. People's three am so we're here and about as much as i can promise you today. I don't think people understand the majority of the time. I am genuinely asleep by seven. Pm and i didn't get home until like twelve thirty. I didn't fall asleep until two in the morning giddy and silly this this morning two hours of sleep in me. So did you guys do it the way that you would normally do it. Megan where you would you know. Prepare to leave like how you always say that you do when you go places or did you sit back and enjoy yourself now. This is fun fact behind the scenes. I really tried to take today off. And that that didn't work out so full disclosure. I was not leaving a minute early from the show. I did not care how did neri styles the only person that can get you to stay till the last song of of the encore meghan. The entire concert kept saying he has a song from his first album called kiwi. That's the name of the song so good and the entire show. It's not a hit. It's kind of a deeper cut. So you don't know if i'm going gonna play it and it's meghan in the entire show. She was like kiwis next. he's going to play. He got he and the very less on. He just did watermelon sugar. And then all of a sudden nita's kiwi and meghan mind. I felt like what if the seventeen year olds which is funny because a lot of the girls around me were like. What is this song. And i'm like educate yourself. Girls be a real harry styles. Fan fan. I wait around for ten years. I'm old and disheveled at this point on. I absolutely lost. I think i cried twice during the concert last. I i probably hit the floor. When kiwi started because my knees just buckled it was so it was so does. Does harry styles do any one direction songs. When he's he makes you beautiful. Did he realize heli. It was awesome. I mean it was so good it was just such a fun tuncer and it was also like very universally. It wasn't inappropriate at all but it didn't feel like a kid show like it was just a really fun show to be. Did your outfits work. Because i know you said the girl in the banana costume. Last yesterday we did the whole topic of dressing to get noticed by the artists on stage. I was trying to follow them up last night. I don't think you understand. How much time and effort i put into looking good last night because it was a minimum of three hours and i think ellen within fifteen minutes of walking around in downtown detroit yesterday i looked a dish shoveled mass before we even got to the concert. It was so humid out meghan able did straightened and did our hair. But we both have naturally curly hair. So i don't know why we are here in the first place. I was sweaty and gross. By the time. I got inside and i was like well. I have just as much of a shot like this as identify looks good. What do you think the you said. There's a lot of younger girls that were there. What like you say in high school or middle school age high schoolers highschoolers. What do you think that they were thinking of. You guys like the like. That would be a great thing to walk around and ask. Can you guess my age. And see. If they can guess your. I'm not trying to hurt my feelings. There were so few people with alcohol. That's when i realized that we were old. And then i walked up to a girl compliment her out there. I was i. Oh you're killing me. And she looked me up and down and was like. Why are you talking. I'm the creepy old lady. I tip the bartender very well last night. Because i was like. You're not getting a lot better. Hold on. Fred works that concert last night. Are you security or an usher. What are you. Fred made for us last night. It was absolutely crazy. Can you even hear us..
Fresh update on "megan" discussed on The Jordan Harbinger Show
"Of like i would never actually call a woman a bitch like you know what i mean i would. I mean she was edge. You know what i mean like. I need it but you know what i mean. It's like literally like if she walked in the room and elbowed my wife and try to get ahead of us in line at a doctor's office. I'd be like man. She's kind of a bitch. You know what i mean. This guy could be an asshole or whatever. It is a phrase. I could say bad person as a net for me. It has nothing to do. I call my homeys Like a bitch for me. It's not yeah it's not a misogynistic thing. I think you can tell by my story. How much love. Reverence and respect that. I have for women. I just always thought it was really funny. That for somebody like myself you know entertainer who may be saying something in a joking manner way especially when you know their heart and who. They're who they are and their intentions. Also when you know that somebody's intentions it's like okay. I'm a comedian or an entertainer on telling his story. It's comical may be saying this in a funny way. I just find it. Funny that people get so goddamn offended. Van outta shape. Yeah especially when they know who you are. When when i could sit here and say how i feel now. Don't get me wrong. If i was like hanging out with my my wife. And she had a girlfriend and they both dressed up or something. And i was like damn you bitches look beautiful obviously like just joking and that girlfriend of hers like please. Don't call me that. I'd be like no problem like obviously i was just kidding but you may have some reason or this or that or whatever no problem i just think it's kind of crazy if i obviously joking and somebody would get so serious. You know what i mean but when you're just obviously megan and i think that's more of them wanting attention though right. That's like more like a. I need to get this person on the back foot. So i'm going to claim something is super offensive when it's not now if something patently offensive like you mentioned the n. Word with the hard art at the end like like yo. You can't say that. I don't like that it's offensive. That's offensive to other people. That aren't me stop. But if it's like if you're doing that in the privacy of your own home and it's a friendly thing and someone's like. I'm going to get offended by that. Question the motive there i think a lot of is is them wanting attention they wanna get you on the back foot at not always but a lot of the time it's i do. Women are not bitches they should not be called bitches just is what it is. Even be as a rapper. It's like a systemic thing. I've liked had songs around. Yeah these bitches in my grip. And then sometimes i ask myself like wait. Why do i say that. I think it's because jay z. Said it android and kendrick said if the rap culture thing and it's a yeah. And then i realized like oh man. That's kind of weird but when it comes to actually addressing women i mean forget about it i just think the concept of like i don't know how to explain it. It's just kind of like the whole chapelle thing or like just stand up comedians general. It's like how can you go to somebody show who's known for being provocative never necessarily says something in a way that it's hate speech like when i look at chapelle personally i look at a man who makes fun of everybody every race including his own every gender every this every that because if we're all laughing at each of these things that he's saying we're all laughing at each other and in a way we're all being connected because of it so it just be all like pissed off about it. I don't know. And i'm like the equality king you know what my i'm like. We'll fight for the right for anybody. But it's just like certain circumstances like dude. It's a joke and as long as it's not truly hurting someone you know what i mean like. You're going at somebody like how your grandma died. You fucking idiot like jess. That's not what you know. I don't. I don't even know how the fuck we got here. Yeah that was all you men just letting.

So if you've been doing a sixteenth eight sixteen hours facet with an eight hour feeding window for years and years and years. Guess what your body gets acclimated.

Tim is is quite used to the reaction that you're having right now. Emily so i told her. I would defend how cool they are which she appreciated. I'm very excited to hear that.

A slew of guest host took the helm of the show as it tried to fill the shoes of the late host Alex Trebek. This week, it announced that producer Mike Richards will be the main host and actress Mayan Bialik will host a special episodes. But many fans were like Mm. Because they wanted to see director author literary advocate and Star Trek actor Levar Burton get the job before his audition week set, some say suspiciously during the Olympics, Burton gushed about his excitement. I've been a fan of jeopardy for all of my life, and when this opportunity came by, I could not pass it up. Social Media raved about his performance. Welcome Mat Donna and Brian. Let's play Jeopardy! Here are your categories. Name that Beatles, too. But Twitter caught fire. When Richards and Bialik were announced with comments running from Megan McCain's Why couldn't they just give it to Levar Burton? Like literally? Everyone on the planet wanted to geometric sleeps? How did jeopardy goes so out of its way Not to give llevar a job burden has been gracious tweeting. The outpouring of love and support from family, friends and fans alike has been incredible Bialik and a move not likely to endear her to his fans posted from her bet on Instagram that she's a fan too. And if you don't like me as the new host of Jeopardy, I'm sorry. I love Levar Burton. I've worked with him on Big Bang theory. I really have great respect for everybody who guest hosted and, um I think it's really amazing that it's a woman host of jeopardy. I think of a woman, so it's really exciting. It's very big Deal.

Meghan Markle's Brother Slams Her & Warns Prince Henry
"All you guys. Let's start with some royal drama. Meghan markle's brother is coming for her. No surprise there thomas. Markle jr. is slamming his little sister in the new trailer for australia. Channel seven's big brother. Vip and he has a nasty warning for prince. Harry brother i'm the biggest brother of like told prince harry. I think she's going to ruin your life. She's very shallow all right question. Do you guys bad for meghan. Do for better megan yeah. I'm a big brother here. Big brother big brother goes on shows talks about their sister like family. They love to talk about meghan markle all day every day. This is shocking to me. I think that's terrible. It's definitely not nice. But i also feel like when they are picking these people like there's no way that Thomas markle was even a candidate to go on the show without the producers being. You're only valid if you're going to say these things about your sister and bring in that sort of drama right. I'm answering as a family. I mean for us right. It's easy for the public to say. Okay she's royalty. I don't really feel that bad for but for your own family to know that like mental health struggles you. Go through and say oh. I'm willing to do anything for these opportunities. Come on man. I mean with big brothers like that to me. That's it's low that that's low is low but there's there's been family drama with them. It's not surprising it's sad i just don't think it's okay to go like that.
Ep2: Chatting It Up With Drought's Hannah Black & Megan Petersen
"So we come back from multiple callbacks, 'cause we were like, there's no way. Things don't work out like this for us. But it just did. And so casting was really, really fun. And everyone ended up just being local to Wellington. Because like you guys are saying there's so much talent outside of Atlanta. And LA and New York. There's so much talent in those places for sure. But the best roles at least for our film were right here. So. Yeah, exactly. And sometimes that works even better because again, like you're saying you got to have sort of a family on set because if you don't have that relationship that you're having fun, you know, because I think it should be about having fun being professional, but if you're not having fun, I mean, then it's not, you know, the production value is not there either. Long amounts of hours with each other. And very hot conditions. So we'll talk about weather, right? So when we were following it, I thought you would talk about hot conditions. There's always something that happens on the set. There's always a setback there's always something, so maybe you can, you know, most people talk about, you know, oh yeah, we had this, we had that, but you girls had something bigger, maybe you can tell us about that. Yes, because what's so funny, I'll tell you is that we had all the typical things like our grip truck got stuck in the sand, our ice cream truck broke down. And we rarely ever talk about those challenges because they are all, you know, I guess overshadowed by the fact that this film is about no rain and on day 12 of production we had to stop everything because a hurricane for hurricane that category four hurricane. It was headed towards Wilmington. And not moving. And he was coming right towards our city. So we had to stop on day 12 with an 18 day shoot and everyone evacuated to places like Charlotte or Atlanta. And we were stuck outside of our town for two weeks. I didn't know what we were going to come to when we came back. Because when Lincoln essentially became an island, it flooded everywhere. We weren't sure if our locations were going to be okay. And not even just for our films, but because those people who came our family do, and we didn't want their businesses to damage. There was a lot and I was also going out of the country during that time. So amazing Hannah, somehow put the Tetris of our crew to schedule back together and everyone was able to come back two months later to film. But then it was 44°. Okay. So one question about that, I mean, so when you have something like that, I said back. It's very hard on your motivation. It's very hard because now you're like, what am I going to do? And it takes a toll, especially if you're an artist, you're trying to create something that's meaningful, and now you have a big setback. How do you bounce back from that emotionally? You know, just say, you know, I just keep doing it. Keep doing it. Besides that you have the responsibility of finishing, but just more in the sense of like a personal, you know, no. The question. Hold on, but you think that's okay. Like, how did we do that? I think part of it is just we have invested so much already. And I think we could say just ourselves invested, but then when we look at our crew and our cast and all the people that contributed to this crowdfunding campaign and shared our film like when we are doing our campaign, it's like it didn't feel like it was our movie and felt like it was our communities movie. And so it had to, we had to finish it. We had to keep on going, even though we were tired, because not only us but so many people aboard their heart and soul into making this happen. And it just, it just wasn't really an option to be like, well, you know, we tried our best. And we had a lot, I mean, a hurricane was big, but we also hit some equally challenging things during that production after production before production. Just a lot of lifestyle, hard stuff in between. And so it's kind of like, I don't know. We just kind of had, I think also 'cause we're a partnership. So when one person is tired, the other person can lift them up and vice versa. Megan, what do you think? Yeah, the thing I was thinking of is a lot of times those setbacks I think we used as motivation to be like, this will not stop us. And it almost made us get more fire. Every once in a while it gets to you. And I think that that's when it's okay to call up your friend or like I got to just call it Hannah. And sometimes we're like, I can't do it today. Like today I take a break from the movie. Because maybe these are a can be at least a nonstop thing you're working on. You can really get burnt out on it. And the thing we didn't want to do is get so tired that we made a wrong decision. Out of just because we felt fired. So the process of making the movie took longer than I think some do, but a lot of that is in part because we allowed ourselves to take a breath if we needed it. Yeah, that's extremely important. I mean, you pretty much said it like you have to step back and do something fun, relax and then come back to it, right? I mean, that was guilty. I feel guilty. Exactly. Well, I mean, I was going to ask you about what your advice for filmmakers was, but I can not set out, but let me make sure that's where it doesn't have another question. And then I'll ask my final question that you girls go with just show the trader one more time do a little plug for Amazon Prime because I know that it's on Amazon Prime and then go from there. I'll check well also if we have any questions on our site. It was exploring your social media. And I was interested because you put it on your Facebook our hopes, raise autism awareness, brand jobs to our community, provide opportunities for women to live if you want it to elaborate on those. Yeah. I think it was really cool. We were able to pay our crew and we were really proud of that. It wasn't a huge amount. But we were also able to give them an interest in the film. So once the film makes money, our hope is that it does because we don't have investors. It is our crew and our cast and we can give that money back to them. In 2018 when we filmed our town was in a really big world for any filmmaking happening in the area. And it kept everyone energized. I think it kept. It gave people opportunities for roles they hadn't begun before. And now they've moved on to studio productions in our doing those roles. So I think got that goal and yes, number one is to raise autism awareness and acceptance in this film to get people talking about it. And to just promote the message that there is no such thing as normal. And we are here to accept each other but also ourselves. And then finally, from when it in film, you know, one of the reasons we set out to even write female characters is because we are actors first. And we auditioned for a lot of roles that were very grateful to audition for their typically very small and they could be like dumb blond or quirky white dress and we're like, ah, women are so much more than that. And so our hope is that people can see two female characters interacting that just have a family relationship and the complexities that come behind that. So those are our hopes. Thanks for reading those. I clearly asked about them. That's awesome with those goals that you have for this film. I was just amazing. Yeah, and I think that's important. That's very important to have goals. I mean, other than that, I think you have given great advice throughout the whole talk right now, which is really what we want to do. And I think you couldn't have said it better that, you know, you're doing this for yourself. Obviously, but also people get opportunities because they do a project. You know, like not a lot of times, you know, people are just doing something in the last 6 because something there's always someone watching, right? I always say that. There's always someone looking at your staff and then seeing what's out there and it's great that you're actors or maybe someone got a production somewhere out of that. And I think that's the most rewarding experience that you can get as a filmmaker to really see somebody in your film, making it as well. So we're going to do a little plug. How do we find your film? So I'll put it on the comments after the link, but yeah, so you can find drought on Amazon Prime. This week actually we're running a special where you can rent for 4.99 and purchase for 9.99. But then at the end of this week, you'll go back up to its normal price. You should just buy it then, right? You know? Yeah. And if you like it, it would mean so much if you guys rated it and murdered you. I'm an honest review. You know, that's really important to us. So yeah, it was on prem. Okay. All right. So this is I promise this is the last question, okay? So this is just if you were to tell yourself before you even started this project. One thing that you would have done differently, maybe just or you would have told yourself before you got this project going like that, maybe yeah, we could have gotten different at different ways. You know, like, oh, sorry, Meg's. You know, you go first. I was thinking you have sex. Okay. I feel like everything was supposed to happen the way it was. So I wouldn't change anything because had learned so much. The learning curve on this project was huge because every single role that Megan and I stepped into was new. But I will say if I could go back and tell myself something that I'll continue to tell myself for the next projects that we do, I really struggled on set and only Megan really knows this. As a director, because I felt like I was completely under qualified, which I was and still am. But I felt like I needed to know everything. Especially technical stuff, which I was not familiar with at all. And so I really got in my head when I was in director mode that I just was so inadequate and it made it was just really unhealthy. Unhealthy thoughts, you know, of like, I'm not good enough or like, no one's gonna listen to me, all that stuff. It's such a waste of time. And so what, maybe I don't know all the answers, but that's why you have a team. So I think I would go back and tell myself just chill. Just trust your gut. You know that other people are working just as hard, you don't have to know the answers, and that's why you have all these great people with you. So yeah, I think that's maybe something that I go back and tell myself. Intel others, you don't have to know everything, just take it one step at a time. That's perfect. Yeah. You know, it's going to sound cheesy. It's mine. It's about the same. I would think in my modes though if I don't know something, I try to learn everything I can about it. And sometimes you just don't have the capacity. I don't need to know everything that the gaffer is doing. As I do more or sound or the first AC or DIT, you know, I wanted to know everyone was doing. I think that comes from a good place. And I think what Hannah's talking about comes from a place of wanting to be a good team, team member. But being a good team member is sometimes releasing responsibility and letting people do what they're there to do. And as we do more projects or as you can do more projects out there, you'll learn more and more each time. And you'll feel, I think more like you have more knowledge of everything going on. It's okay if you don't. That's perfect. I think that's perfect by this way. I mean, pretty much what we've been saying and we're gonna keep saying it and we're gonna try to do this little segment as much as we can find filmmakers that are doing great things in this area and outside this area because I think we're all connected anyway. So maybe one, maybe one day we'll get to work in a project together, and definitely. Ladies, we wish are the best and the best of luck on your future and it looks like it's gonna be a pretty good one. I mean, you have a great movie that I think is going to inspire not only filmmakers, but just anyone looking to just be creative.

How Much Do You Need to Save to Retire Comfortably?
"Be with you today. Well, hello, Megan. It's always a pleasure. I'm looking forward to sharing some more great information to our listeners today. Well, there's a lot to get to and I want to start with how much we should be saving for retirement. Jeff, How do we make sure we were actually on track to meet our goals. It's kind of interesting. You hear a lot of things, especially when it comes to like emergency money. I'm sure most of our listeners have heard you should save at least 3 to 6 months of of your your monthly income to have as a cushion. In case something happens with your employment, and that's a good rule for those that are still working. But once you get to retirement, it's a little different. Um, when you get there, we call that the pillow money. How much do you need to have in the bank as emergency money so that when your head hits the pillow at night, you're comfortable now That number is going to be vastly different for everybody. Some we've had some people come in and say, Look, I only want $5000 and I'm like, Oh, no, no, no, no, that just doesn't work. But having 50 for some folks is plenty. Some folks need 100,000. Everybody has their own number, So it's important for you to get comfortable with that number. Keep in mind that there is a cost for having that pillow money. And what I mean by that is you're not going to make much money in the bank because the rates are currently you know. It's just not producing much so you won't make much there. So you want to have emergency money but may be considered to different phases of that. So the initial emergency can be the bank with its 25 40 50,000 whatever your number is, But then you can have money invested in a brokerage account that you can liquidate those investments and have that put into your account within, say, three days or so. And that can be like your second portion of emergency money. At least that part the the invested part can make some money and that way you're not putting it all in the bank and not earning anything on it. So that's that's a recommendation there. So one thing to look at. That's just one thing. Of course, there are many different things to look at. When we talk about this topic. It's a

"Named megan re pino who just quite simply hates this country she and most of if not all of her Teammates on the us women's national team routine routinely kneel during the playing of the national anthem Or the presentation of our great colors the stars and the stripes. She has publicly advocated for support of this position By supporting the originator of it from five years ago quarterback colin kaepernick an avowed communist supporter. A castro fan who believes that the united states is a systemically racist country. Sodas meghan repeal no so do her teammates on the us women's national team. Now they played a game in the qualifiers for the For these olympics and again not having watched a single kick all i can do is look at scoreboard. They lost badly three. Nothing to switzerland or sweden or somebody. I don't care whoever they are. I cheered for them because they were beating up on people who hate my country even though they were wearing the colors that represent my country. You see. I believe in the mathematical equation of a negative. Negative is a positive if a negative anti-american Like meghan were. Pinot is speaking ill of my country. I am going to be negative towards her and root for her opponent. And that makes me a proponent of my country. Because i don't want anti americans representing america so mega on the soccer team. It was pretty much guaranteed because of the best team on the planet or have been for the last ten years or so that they were going to win a gold medal and then during the gold medal presentation at the tokyo olympics would probably have taken in the or d'amato and other some sort of a protest to tell the world that america is oppressive toward minorities or toward gay people or toward whatever their their agenda is the follow up to that loss to switzerland or sweden was a game in the quarterfinal round.

Soccer Star Megan Rapinoe Cozies up to Biden Administration
"It is true that most people will never likely get to meet reagan.

This the dislike of her rights. This terrific inciteful writer at red state. The dislike of megan rappeneau isn't just because she's an annoying person. It's because her critics don't want her. Ill informed opinions on issues like equal pay and the transgender debates over and over again. She has undercut her own arguments on equal pay when trying to make the case that she and her teammates were getting the short end of the stick. The most notable incidents of this happening was during july. Twenty one thousand nine interview with rachel maddow over at msnbc when rappeneau argued in so many words that the best way for people to support the women's team was to buy tickets to games and by their merch in otherwise in other words generate the necessary revenue that would justify getting paid on par with the guys and then we can revisit the equal pay issue again to see if rappeneau who makes hundreds of thousands if not millions in endorsement deals has any further questions. Secondly this is like the nfl or the nba where teams that protests the anthem. Play for different city rap. No place for a national team. The american team making rappeneau represents the united states of america. So her kneeling. When our country's national anthem is played. Is just disgraceful. Pure and

Sometimes they come in squares with the one. I use this tiny little circles that are color coded and then you have corresponding teeny tiny little plastic beads. That you use a small tool. Looks like a pen or a pencil to move the beads from a little tray to the painting.

I think a new film is in future as well all right. Let's let's we have a category for twenty twenty. Do you have a favorite mask. It's so funny. Because i was going to ask you about this the other day because i don't love any face masks and i'm not sure that there's any face masks that i would ever love somebody because i don't really like the feeling of wearing a mask however the ones that we consistently re by i wear the most often are the universal thread from target pleaded masks. Not the ones that have the seemed on the center but the pleaded version fit my face. The best i find them the most comfortable. And i continue to purchase over and over. So i'm not a fan of the one has the same down the middle because i think it makes me look like a duck. They're real pointed down the front Yeah i haven't used the universal thread. I'm actually a fan of the old navy. Ones like you said the pleaded the pleaded style for me. I just like that. They have a large variety. they have seasonal ones. they're cheap and most of all they're not so tight on my face at my lips. Don't rub that's my biggest pet peeve if my lips are touching them ask like lives in mutations are adjustable so i don't know if you have any of the newer ones but now they have the little adjustable toggles Don't know if i do. i don't think i do.

And i could do it in my downtime and i got the result that we wanted so i'm very proud of myself but a tie is this podcast. I'm so glad we started it. I am to that actually is mind but now that you say that i am proud that i i volunteered for dnc. I did text banking which is slightly less time involvement than the postcards. But this is the first time i've ever been involved in a political campaign and it felt great even when people yelled at me. Text message and i think you know getting involved. There's so many great ways to do it. And i think will absolutely do it in the future but yes this podcast. I'm proud of us. We've talked about it for a long time.

That's not my goal so low on the list of rarities house pants stance. Okay so no joke. I have written down here. Pull on pants are okay. So tell me how that's different. Okay so i typically live in jeans. I am so uncomfortable in jeans these days because they come on i have gained the quarantine so my jeans are not comfortable anymore and i don't wanna live in them all day long so i started purchasing pull on pants with elastic waist. Embarrassed to even admit it but like holy hell. They're su- comfortable good player you getting like. Are they like denim pants jeans. No they are cotton.

I've never done a christmas class because we always say we're going to and then the holidays get so busy that finding an evening or an afternoon to go over there is really hard and so now. She's doing all these really adorable holiday paintings. And if i would just set up my station. I could have all the christmas painting. Well what's awesome about it to is. She does livestream it. But you always have access to it so not always but it does expire after several months. I think you don't have to do it at the same time. She's livestreaming the point. I was trained. Yes do you have a favorite book of the year. Okay so early twenty twenty. It was my goal to read. You're gonna laugh two books a month. I know you read two books a day and that fizzled off in like april. Like i just couldn't couldn't wrap my brain around it. So i'm going back to early in twenty twenty of the books that i read.

"We decided to buy a new blog theme. The previous one was seven years old and the designers had stopped keeping it up to date several years ago. Therefore as wordpress developed certain key features had ceased to work. The result was that it was becoming tedious to update. I and my colleagues and friends chose the new blog theme that you see before you at this moment. That designers have produced it especially for authors and publishers. Just like me. We set our new blog theme up quite quickly although that is not to say that this new theme is without its problems not the least of which is the slow response from the support desk and the lack of a clear easily reference simple manual blogs support in these days of covid nineteen support must be difficult since call centers are all closed or should be i imagine either that or they are running at one third to a quarter capacity anyway. The support team does answer eventually but it can take days which seems like. Here's if you are anxious to get a new blog theme up and running if they had a comprehensive or even just a decent manual for the theme. I am sure that my friends. And i could have sorted it out for ourselves. Much more quickly. However the guide such that it is is online and nothing more than a bunch of hyper links after clicking on a few of them. I don't know where i am many more. My biggest mistake with a new blog theme was to impose it directly on top of the old one. I advise you to open a fresh instance of wordpress somewhere and practice there until perfect. That way you won't lose your blog for a couple of days like did. What a panic that was. I can't tell you. The new team is huge though. My blog is quite large anyway for a one man band win jones. The former owner had created nearly three thousand entries. Two thousand of them were posts and pages still. I was stunned to find that the blog had swollen to four point four gigabytes after applying the new theme theme features. To be honest. I have only set up the barest blog from the resources available in this theme. I am aware of what else it can do. But time has so far prevented me from learning how to implement more features such as direct sale of books without paying amazon apple or anyone else the rental of blogs space to advertisers such as authors publishers. Or just about anyone and so much more. In fact i have just decided that the next feature i want to implement is the shop. I am going to call it. Megan's market women tend to sell readers and writers paraphernalia. It will also be able to handle the salvi books my own end those of others. I hope that you will support me in these ventures especially the direct salvi books if you are a regular visitor you will notice me adding these extra features to our new blog theme over the coming months on the other hand if you would like to purchase your own copy of this theme called publisher or one like it but geared in a different direction. The owners are currently as i write offering a discount of forty five percent. Here's the link new blog theme meghan publishing services..

"The role of PR in Internet. Marketing. The Internet has been around for more than twenty five years now, but they're still a lot of novice or would be sales people who don't realize that Internet marketing is basically the same as any other type of marketing except that you have more possibilities and that it can be cheaper. Cheaper, cheaper to reach more people who might be interested in whatever you have to sell your potential customers and on an industrial scale. Traditionally, a salesperson would be advertising to the inhabitants of his or her town television increased the scope to nationwide, but the Internet has made got global. If. You are a one man band. This potential can be daunting and you will soon come to understand that you are just not able to source your goods create and maintain your website right sales literature for it take orders and dispatch them deal with enquiries, complaints, and returns plus maintain records for tax purposes, stock, etcetera, Etcetera Cetera all on your own. You will soon decide that you need help. There are two ways to go taking on more staff or outsourcing work. Taking on stuff will free you up to learn about corporation tax says, taxes, payroll income, tax workers, rights, health, and safety, and other employment laws whereas outsourcing will only mean a little more paperwork. It will actually create more time for you. What do you outsource is obviously up to you, but I am going to recommend that one of the things that you could outsource quickly and cheaply is the writing of your sales material and websites content by website here I am including the far more interactive and responsive blog. This is the easiest and cheapest way getting your Internet based business up and running quickly. If. You have gone down this route like it or not you an Internet marketer with a mail-order business congratulations. There are five basic points that every Internet marketer has to to learn about the mail order business in order to increase their profits. The Internet is just another perhaps the most superior vehicle for direct, response marketing. But it contains within itself the potential to make you rich. However because the marketplace is so huge and therefore has many participants in it, it evolve extremely quickly. The there are hardly any market swear fashioned. No current trends do not play a role and you will need to keep abreast of those fast changing trends. That prices move quickly some tend to rise whereas those an older technology full. International law changes bans embargoes, tariffs, and trade wars are becoming more and more common. It has never been easier to reach so many people so quickly. When you have sorted these staples out, you may like to outsource your marketing as well as drop shipping. But in the beginning, you will probably need to provide your own marketing material. This raises two questions. Do you have the talent to righted and if so do you have the time to write it? If not then again, you have to possible solutions either hire someone to write bespoke articles for you or find relevant off-the-peg articles and modify them to suit your needs. The name given to these off the peg articles is. which stands for public rights, and once again, there are two sorts. The first kind is usually free but old articles that have been around for quite some time and can be spotted on numerous sad looking blogs and the second so-called fresh material which to be bought although it is usually fairly cheap both kinds are often bundled into niche packages and should be fine tuned to perfectly suit your business. The big difference is that the articles that have been used hundreds of times will need a lot of rewriting since. So many variations already exist whereas the second can be turned around a lot more quickly. Since these niche packages of often cost less than ten dollars I set of ten articles. It is hardly worth going for the free option because your time is worth more than the cost of rewriting a free article is extensively as would be necessary to render it you need. What sort of Niche Pilar packages either the Rangers unbelievable there will not be much that a person can sell. That will not be covered by appeal our articles somewhere you will need to type something like your product p. l. our articles with the inverted commas into a search engine. However if you want to dive right in, even if it's only to have a look at some examples of niche peel packages, you could do worse than try Megan publishing services mcgann INCEPTION DOT com.

"Good Times all right so then I went to northwestern and I'd never seen a lot of things I'd never are supposed to be a theater major. I only lasted for the first trimester of freshman year before transferred out because everybody was so I was so shine inhibited. And there were all these like real theater kids and that was the way they did. They were already just like in it to win it and I was so mortified by the whole thing. I was mortified by them. I was mortified by everything we are asked to do in the acting. Class like roll across the floor is like I'm not really across the why. Why would I roll across the floor where you're pretending you're a tumbleweed? I was like I'm not a tumbleweed. Why would I be a tumble? I mean I just couldn't I couldn't do it so But I did make a Lotta friends. I did end up being friends with a lot of the theater people but I I studied primarily English and art history and I only went to college for two years I cast in a professional show casting a musical Directed by this young guy who is now the sick a huge person in American theaters. Name's Robert Falls. Bob Falls and at the time he he and I were. I mean he was only I was twenty and he was twenty four twenty five And he had this little theatre outside of Chicago. It wasn't professional theater. It was like an equity waiver thing and I got cast in this musical playing a sixteen year old runaway girl and I had a big song and the show as a huge hit. It was about a supermarket bag boy and was a huge hit and it moved downtown. Everybody got their equity cards meaning. It became we all became professional actors. Carmen card and I dropped. I went back. I try to go back for my junior year while I was doing this. Play downtown this musical eight shows a week and that was having a really hard time like getting my school. My you know homework done writing papers and I wanted to talk to the Dean and I said look this is just you know I'm going back and forth Chicago. Eight eight shows a week and I'm trying to take class trend. You know she should drop out dean. It's a excuse me she should drop out. I mean you know you came here to learn things about performing and now you're doing it professionally and you're not even taking classes. Their performance classes. So what's The you know? Do the math yeah. Those are good advice. I thought so till it really was the best advice I ever got and then Did you continue to work more in Chicago? What was going on there? I I did. I've always I've been very fortunate I've never really had jobs that weren't performance oriented. So I I that show is big hit and that meant that everybody saw everybody in Chicago theatre saw it and knew who I was and hired me for their other different shows so I I worked pretty much nonstop back to back Plays or musicals in Chicago for six years and I also got into the jingle world at one point and sang jingles and made pretty good money doing that And then that's IT and I. I started dating this guy named Joe and he wanted to move to Los Angeles and see what was happening there and I'd wanted to move to New York and he said we'll make you a deal. We'll go to Los Angeles for a month and no go to New York for a month and so I said yes but then I'd already been flown out to Los Angeles a few times for screen tests for things like I tested for the lead in risky business and I was. It was a really big deal test. I was out there for like two out here for two weeks. Had All these extensive you know. Yeah it was a whole big. I don't think they do. They don't do screen tests like that anymore. I mean this was such a big thing. I mean they don't spend that kind of money like you put yourself on tape or you come in an audition and that's kind of it but they flew me out with another actor from Chicago. Who was up for the Tom? Cruise part in We were out there out here for two weeks into this. Whole big thing and spoiler alert neither one of US Scott up But then they put me on in this guy anyway so I moved out to and there are a few other big movies that I had tested for the lead in so when I got out here. People already kind of knew me some casting. Directors and agents knew who I was and already been Pursued by a few agents I'd had cold calls in my apartment in Chicago from big Hollywood ancient so I came out and I got signed at William Morris right away and my boyfriend who had moved out with didn't and he didn't think it was very funny so he went back to Chicago to be with his parents because he was Italian. He missed the sauce. He missed the sauce. Who's M- Mister Nice Guy? Mr His mama's meatballs by racist. Will I find that that entire arc? Very gratifying because it led you. It's interesting I also wanted to go to New York instead of La and my girlfriend at the time said no we have to move to Los Angeles. And I agreed. And she didn't even make it here. She flaked out but I already had everything in place so I came to La Myself and thankfully we both did because here we are in our bed p cast and I think that's a good place to draw the curtain on all things.

"This is to me a really rich chapter in your life so you get to northwestern and what's so we'll talk about my parents still let all bit okay. Well I was an only child and My my dad was a really serious alcoholic and also had a second career as a womanizer. And so that informed like that is probably the most important thing about what you know sent me in whichever direction. I went in because I he was also a had been aspiring actor and he was very funny and he was very weird. Weird like dark humor and kind of Meta and he really committed he did bits and they were big and he committed to them so that was happening and we did my Mama. I thought he was a scream until he was you know Joy was screaming and screaming at me. yeah so the bottom line is You know alcoholism as an effect on your children whether you thinking is having effect or not. It is even if you think they don't know about or you've hidden it from them which my father didn't do but It has a drastic effect and also my father's wandering ways had a big effect on me because my mom would try to recruit me should be her second in command of the detective squad because she was always trying to figure out who my dad was with or where he was what was going on. And and then she would enlist meet a like perform certain tasks in the investigative Arts so that was also not cool. But my father wasn't he didn't sexually molest me. He was emotionally on verbally abusive and it was pretty much every day and it was pretty much full tilt like it wasn't Renault half-measures but the bottom the the the thrust of it is that I I couldn't ever seem to do anything right no matter what I did. It wasn't right. It wasn't what he wanted so that I think it needs to be said because you know who knows what. I'd be doing today if I grew up with you know. Perfect adorable parents true. My Mom was extremely supportive of me creatively. And she did give me. She gave me lessons on all these things like ballet And was very supportive and she had a great interest in the Arts Herself. She just had an interest in the arts and pass that along to me. But you know I think like when you're when you're a kid you don't realize it but as you get older you think well my mom was wonderful. But why did she stay with my father you know? Why did she subject to me to his terror? I mean it was a reign of terror and wide. I have to live in that house with him for that many years. I mean they finally split up when I was a freshman in college but you know I would have liked to have lived somewhere where he wasn't living. That would have been better. I'm not blaming my mom because those kinds of people can take a person like my mom who is so sweet and they can really like they they draw you and they get you look. He's a narcissist May They get you they wou- and they're perfect and then once they have your they want you. They don't want then they want to bring you down. And so he. That's what he spa time. Doing with my mom and the about the other person who's not the narcissist who's in the abusive. Who's not? The you know the abuser The thing about those people is that they're always thinking but he was. He loved me so I know he loves me when we first were together. Nobody's ever said that things that he said to me. Nobody's ever loved me the way he loved me and so they spend all this time trying to get it back more and sometimes it does comeback from at once. The abuser has gone so low that they think oh. She's not gonNA forgive me this time. Then they get real nice and then then they get you back where they want you and then they. It's they repeat the cycle of abuse over and over and over over the must've been harrowing to grow up with them. Great wasn't good and then affected me in every area Well it. It didn't really affect me in terms of my my career. Because I could just Campari I can compartmentalize like nobody's business. I still can but it really affected me in relationships. Yeah as you now. You don't say I I think it's been a low about our sincere and I've I've been together. I have no complaints. I mean you know I I bring my baggage to the you know. Any two people bring their history and the something to always remember. Is that things that happen to you in your life aren't your fault you know. And if if there are visible effects from from your past. That's part of the deal and where you know. I have all my extra body parts that you have to deal with that. Most people find disgusting. What Tusk I like the claws actually brief kissing break-in cleverest showering neck with Kisses even though I'm the one who had the bad childhoods all the work on this. She's she's better interesting right questions so the summer after my senior year in high school during my Syria in high school I had matt or I had been contacted by a guy who was about five years old or who had gone to a different high school in Oklahoma City. He had heard that I was a singer and he won. He was trying to find a singer to go out. He had this guitar player that he'd Somehow Matt and he was kind of producing this summer. Thing where we would go out to a club in Westwood and What should California Must Be California? Which in the seventies was the only place to be in Los Angeles it was like the groovy part of town for the listener. It's it's a neighborhood west of Beverly Hills where Ucla's located yeah so I spent the summer after my senior year singing in a nightclub in Westwood California Los Angeles called yesterday's and me and this guitar player did pretty much every fleetwood Mac song that ever been recorded to date. We did the hall like Rianne an album so crazy when I think about You consider doing an Stephen next songs with Nancy and Beth. Now there's somewhere in the middle we only we don't do metal songs. Do Rider left. And so yeah so. That was a crazy. Summer and I'm so surprised that my parents who are so. My mom was so overly protective of me that she let me do that but I realize after the fact that that was the summer that my parents probably had I think had decided to get rid of me so that they can spend some time together and figure out if they are going to get divorced or not. Macos is right after that they did and would there be anything to I mean. Your mom had lived in Los Angeles Before you were born is is there anything to was? She may be thinking you know this could be a good career advancement for you. She definitely did that but I just can't believe she let me go out there by myself but I was eighteen. So it's pretty I mean no I am with you. That's a crazy because I went out with these two older guys and went out with this twenty three year. Old Guy Who was the sort of manager and they went out with the guitar player who is like twenty five or twenty shared a room twin beds with a guitar player. Who was a a married guy from? Bend Bend Oregon. Maybe on sounds right crews and then we we were living in another whole other guys apartment so you know the. Shit went down. I mean your virginity lost a another Another story well. That's really my only two stories but I did lose my virginity. New Modem Catholic wayland or face plant t the manager and then Flip a flipped over. Situation I mean. I'm I'm glad that you made it out of that situation. You know with your sanity end safety because Los Angeles in the seventies as beautiful eighteen year old innocent things could have gone in a much uglier way. Yeah the guy on the apartment that we are staying in Made advances one day when everybody else was gone and he made some headway but he performed an act on me that had never been performed and then wanted. This is before I lost my virginity. Then he wanted me to reciprocate and I was like are you. Hi No and then he got really mad and did not speak to me or look me for the entire rest of the summer that we lived there so that was not cool because I was eighteen and he was like twenty three or twenty four years. Old Maybe twenty five he might have benefited from a brochure on consent. And Yeah Yeah I mean I didn't. He asked me to do something to him. I was like what are you talking? Even what he was talking about. I mean I wasn't sophisticated I would i. I was very I didn't trust men and so in highschool. I didn't let anybody near me. I mean I kissed guys. That was really did he. Throw anything you To throw anything even on Canada not to go through car keys now after bright so After I lost so I lost my virginity to this Guy Fred. Why was his name Fred? But it was The manager of yesterday's where we were we played was named was a failed actor in brick Houston. That's brick as in the thing that your house is built out of Houston and We were at his house in like Redondo beach or something and I lost my virginity on his white couch which was not wide anymore And after that happened the next day. I told Fred that I had been a virgin and he laughed. Just believing Louis and so I- through a big ring of car keys out his head unfortunately missed but then when he was forty. His dog dining killed himself jokes on somebody. Yeah May I guess? He should've taken a blow to the head. Gas and things might have turned out differently. I think he I don't know why he killed himself. I mean he I know you. His dog died. That's all. I heard so zenith really close to his dog. Roses the summer right before college. It was the summer right before college so I didn't WanNa come back even though it had these terrible experiences. I didn't want to come back. My mom had to come out. Rhonda my friend from Oklahoma City who have known since first grade had come out and she was out there with the this. We were staying in a motel That had a pool. I think it was around one that I always go by off of sunset off the four zero five We were staying there and my mom came out to drive back because I was supposed to go back and do a show at the summer stock theatre the last show of the season. I'd been hired to play like an actual role in that not being the ensemble but have an actual part and I didn't want to go and she said well the theater is GonNa see you. They weren't but she told me that. And I believe during it scared me so back in. Rondo went with me and all my clothes got stolen. The Guitar Player had met a girl and she stole all my clothes out of the back of the van. Because of course there's a van involved in this story everything for a second there wasn't there was also the guitar player. I had to share that room with him. And he put the moves on me and I I- successfully fended him off and then he would very aggressively go to his twin bed. And since you're gone off in the most in the loudest like how big a jerk off but I mean it was just in the room. You shared tiny room with two twin beds other twin bed.

"Didn't. They didn't have thinking of work in New York City. Oh yes so so I was in this. I was very extremely obsessed with ballet When I was in junior high and high school and it was in the seventies when ballet was really big deal is like a pop cultural phenomenon. Ballet dancers were superstars like Brescia Coffin Chelsea Kirkland. I mean everybody wanted to know every detail of their love lives and you know a thing and I started. I started ballet lessons when I was six. My mom put me in Bali class and so I've been taking balance of that whole time. And then they started ballet company in Oklahoma City which they've never they've never been a ballot pretty before in Oklahoma. And so I. I was in the first year of I company And it was called the Metropolitan Ballet announced called Ballet Oklahoma. So I did that and I in the summers I was you know is pretty pretty good at it and in the summers my mom I I got accepted at the School of American ballet in in New York City which is near sea. Ballet's school. Where they you know they run it. And they trained people there and they draw from that for their company and New York City. Ballet is the best American Ballet Company in my opinion and always has been it was balancing was the famous choreographer and artistic director. So that's the company that Burston coughing all those people came out and So I got to study there for two summers and my mom went with me. A sixteen seventeen and my mom took me to All these Broadway shows and valets so I got to see all the great dancers dance like you know. Nureyev and Edward Villela Bristol. Cough Kelsey Kirkland. I mean everybody and they also took classes at the same. Sometimes they would like Kelsey. Kirkman took our class my class which was crazy. And so I got this great exposure or to You know culture. The first show I saw on Broadway was the original production of Chicago with Gwen Verdon and Cheetah Rivera. That's why I did that. Song razzle-dazzle so captivated by that show and everything about it and You know so I just I I yes so I was very lucky to have this great experience and also to be become really good friends with all these girls in my class. Most of whom are from you. Know whichever borough of New York They were much more kind of a little more sophisticated and worldly than I was But they were still young girls. I mean they weren't crazy sophisticated so that was a really great advantage both culturally to get the ballet training but also to just experience New York City as a teenager. And have your mom with the wherewithal to take you to shows and you know that to me at that age. That would have seemed like traveling to the lost city of Atlantis or something to seem crazy. It was great and my mom and I had fun too all right so then just so tell me so you're superindent ballet and you've had this prestigious training and now it's time to pick a college so walk me through that process. Well I didn't want to go to college and I my mom said Lawmaker deal if you apply to one college edge and if you don't get in then I'll help you know help you get set up in New York and so I I picked northwestern and I laid down on the floor of my room at like one thirty in the morning and I wrote the most bullshit essay in the history of college applications. Because I didn't want to get accepted particularly wanting to go to New York but then I got accepted. So I'd love to see if North Western has that college application. I'm sure they don't but it would be hilarious to read. What a road because it was complete bullshit. Do you remember why you picked northwestern we'd my mom had heard that it was the best school for you know aspiring whatever? I was show Biz performers. Yeah but I mean you know. We didn't really have show Biz in Oklahoma City at hunt been invented yet There was no acting class or I was the only person in my school that I'm aware of who was actively pursuing the arts.

It'll be great closing with a song from the musical. Chicago called razzle dazzle which I fully choreographed on which culminated in my sitting down on the lap of the principal and basically what I now realize.

They would just give me whatever drugs they were doing and I would just take them without question And at one point they sent me home with a care package of a couple of quail woods and I took about a quarter of quoted one day at school and we were at over by the by the lake. We've sort of gone to the far side where we thought we could. Maybe sneak a cigarette so is under the influence of a quarter of acquainted and I saw a gaggle of ducks we had ducks and geese on a lake. It's really the call. It's more of a pond A large pond and So I thought it'd be an amazing idea to take a running leap into the center of this group of ducks. True and I did and I was a ballet company at the time and I took quite a good got quite a lot of momentum behind me and just landed in the dirt on my face. I thought well that was this fun. As I thought it was going to be. And then went to my history class and lead my head down at dusk in passed out or cautionary tale does really the only drugs that I ever did. Though during that time my cousin would give them to me was very skeptical. Skeptical about jugs unless they were handed to me directly from her hand. Limited sons. Did anything happen Around the pond at an earlier date involving witchcraft. Oh sure on the playground which was close to the pond or the lake There was a Bush that you could get inside of and I discovered that and I got inside of it and a lot of boys came in with me and they were all my servants. I was the queen and they were there to do my bidding and I would send them out on tasks. Fetch me a stick and one would scurry out and come back with a stick is GonNa all six. That's right yeah those sticks that I have that in the bed with us every night. Yeah Oh that's great origin. Story thanks And so I mean really. That dynamic has never changed for me. It's never left me. No I'm now you're Fisher of sticks your one and only Did you did you have a lot of friends when you were a kid or like we out and about or were you more of a time? Child I was an only child. I That's okay we will find your way from the time I was when we lived in Costa Mesa Size. Probably three or four. There was a little boy who had come over dressed up in a suit with short pants and a bow tie and he would plies trough to me so I started early but I was an only child and I spent a lot of time alone in my bedroom with the door. Closed making up dances and stories putting them to music which is basically what. I'm still doing right now with Nancy and Beth my bond my band and but I also had a fervent belief and elves and fairies. So I did spend quite a lot of time on my own seeing elves ferret. I don't fairyland under my bed. One time out of just small items and then you'd find the house and I I got it all set up and I took a break and I look back under and they were all in their Jilin town. The town was booming and It was just tough because I was so drawn to the idea of elves and fairies and I wanted to play elves in various with my friends but of course my friends were not as drawn to the ideas I was and they couldn't see elves and fairies and so there are some opposition not some opposition. My friends particularly my friends from the neighborhood. Who are my my? I really good friends. I'd run around and play rather than school friends. You know you got your friends on the block. They weren't having the hall various things. Do you remember where that started like what you know? Where did you first come into contact? Anna back called Alison fairies so pretty Shangaans from source. And the book. I still have it. You can find A. It's a little golden book but it's a big little golden book And it has the most incredible stations and I was just so I'm I I guess. Even then I was such a visual person I was just it captured my imagination. I was so taken by these stations and You know one of them was a little girl asleep in her bed. And all the fairies or like around her of their all glowing with their little ones and they're beautiful dresses and little shoes and there is little glowing orbs beautiful fairies are all hovering around her as she sleeps stuff like that. I mean you're not gonna be able to get past that if you're a five year old girl is just not going to happen. You'RE GONNA get taken by that magic. Yeah so I would say from the time I was definitely for the time. It was six maybe not five but six when we got to Oklahoma City. And I don't know eight or nine I was still pretty into the Alps and fairies maybe alive and passed out. Maybe not and you said you spend a lot of time and then I was into the Monkey. I was into Davy Jones of the monkees by the tomatoes. Nine or ten US spending a Lotta time kissing my pillow imagining it was Davy Jones. I could I can see a case being made for Davy Jones having some health blood. Yeah I remember my friend. Hillary is an I would do that. We would spend a Lotta time doing nothing. We take a break and I would eat mustard sandwiches and she would eat ketchup. Seen much else this explains a lot. Doesn't it Just yellow mustard on bread. Yeah French says the answer to that question. So you said you spend a lot of time in your room making up songs and creating Acting scenes and dances so And we've heard your story and another podcast of your coming out when you presented yourself is the world's greatest clown at age three. I think it was so. When did you You know he spent all this time sort of performing your ten thousand hours of preparation in your room. When when did you then come out publicly as a performer? I was in a ballet company I'd done a couple of summers seasons of summer stock in Oklahoma City at the lyric theatre and I was in a ballet company from ninth grade through twelfth grade but when I was in a senior in high school the I was the choir director at our school the choir directors at our school. I was in choir for a little while but I don't think I was in choir even senior year. But they they had come to understand that I could sing. And they encouraged me. They thought that I could sing a little bit better than normal and so they said well. You should sing some show tunes at Chapel. We had chapel every morning first thing because it was an episcopal school. I'm not an Episcopalian but it was on Piscopo school. We had to go to chapel. Which usually consisted of nothing religious but Role the students with the students from ninth through Twelfth Grade Upper School were there so's you know. Two hundred and fifty kids or whatever and just to set the scene. This is basically like the church attached to the school then little. It's little chapel. It says beautiful small lovely little chapel and Says maybe three hundred kids actually closer to and you know the the last thing you really want do. When you're that you're in highschool is stand up in front of everybody in your school and perform a talent Mingka's it could end in you. Know permanent scarring for life and As opposed to the scarring for life. That's not permanent And so.

I guess you might say I've inherited my mother's inquisitiveness express snacks through my love for languages. If you could give a beginning translator a piece of advice what would it be be selective about what you accept and be perfectionist and thorough. Once you've accepted it reread meticulous lady.

"That's so sweet this is a years worth of happenings yeah what do you think megan what's your what's your take on that i it's so hard to know if a guy is putting an effort or not as a blanket statement of my life i don't know of a guy is ever putting an effort or if he's just kind of existing next to me sure sure i definitely think that she's done everything that she can do that she has nothing to worry about this girl yes that's my what she's wondering if he's like trying to be with her or just be friends how do you decide the line between more than friends and just friends oh golly because like you could take any gesture anything that you say even like oh you look nice today it's like oh does he mean i look nice as a person or does he look nice like he wants to look at me when he wakes up you know i hear you yeah i mean i think she just doesn't know who knows who knows what's going on with this guy mba program is a busy boy i think that there is something to you know letting the pursuit happened in some way so i feel like this is like i feel like what we're seeing right now is a snapshot and a potentially very long story but i don't think that it's necessarily need a like some catalysts on her part like i feel like the situation sounds like she's made her kind of like openness to the idea very clear and he clearly has you know things going on and so the how that plays out is anybody's guess is what it seems like to me ever been in a similar situation where you're friends with a girl and like would pop over to where she works if you're in the area i feel like that that gesture alone i wouldn't stop by a friends work.
