How To Say Hi



E129 – Errands are not the most fun part of adulting. But, rather than rushing through them, why not try to make it a special part of your day…or someone else’s! We share some awkward and silly examples of how getting groceries, running to the Post Office, or filling up at the gas station can bring a little joy to those often-dreaded errands. In this episode, we chat about some simple ways to liven up your to-do list while connecting with people along the way. Laughing is good for you! The researchers at Mayo Clinic say so.

Tahiti, Moorea, Prune Tips, Departure Songs



E127 – Recapping our recent amazing Tahiti and Moorea trip with mom, we talk tsunami from Tonga, the food forest pool boy, crazy drives in our mango jellybean car, a backwoods pig, chumming, and our favorite memories of the beautiful islands in French Polynesia. LISTEN TO THE END for the sweetest song we recorded at the airport going home. We were crying into our masks! But first we get up close and personal about travel bowels, otherwise known as vacation constipation, and wonder if anyone else out there suffers from this too. What can you do to prevent it? Is it diet or stress? How can you fix it? And how do you deal with toilet issues with your travel partners? We also delve into how things are going living together, what is vabbing, some tongue twisters, as well as embarrass ourselves with a fun new talent. Yes, we realize we’re educated middle-aged women that still get a huge kick out of 13-year-old boy humor. Don’t know what to say besides… this is us!

Thank you to our amazing patrons – our family!!! – and to our new patron Sara! Hope you like the song, discussion, and welcome pack!

Homecoming, Creative Juices, Intimate Laundry



E122 – We talk old movie humor, Elon Musk in a tiny house “Martian” style, and Mouse’s kids with their embarrassing homecoming story. Then it’s back! Guess that Weenie Tune! Learn this song’s real origin and collaboration with guitarist Ishan Cooper, aka Coop DeVille of “Bat Funk Crazy” and George Clinton Parliament Funkadelic fame. Afterwards we get into dream jobs, creative juices, and how to take Julianne’s psychology knowledge and combine it with her other filmmaking skills. Should we team up, bunk up, and make a documentary on the science of dreams? The topic of gratitude, boundaries, and teen responsibility comes up, namely teaching kids collegey life skills like laundry. This leads to secret sniffer talk and other intimates! On that note, should we add some water weenies to our merch? We think so! Write in to mouseandweens@gmail.com. Visit Weens music at https://JulianneEggold.com

Road Rage, White Lies, Sticky Barbies



E120 – We talk the why, what, and when of road rage at minute 20. Find out about anxiety and control as we talk about bad driving, bad drivers, and stories of our road rage moments! (Did someone say dangling side mirror?!) But first we catch up on figgy neighbors, types of podcasts, psychic phones, sticky Barbies, punk roots, and parental bucking the line. Is it better to be a strict rule-follower or are we entitled to nuance those rules? Should we protect friends’ and family’s feelings and fudge a bit, or be 100% truthful about canceling plans? Are you in a coupling with an introvert and an extrovert? Write in if you relate! mouseandweens@gmail.com

Best Of: Coolsculpting Yanni



E119 – This one is a favorite! We’re back with some life updates and mustache talk. Weens describes her new gig on the set of the LA tv show The Rookie and her Fishbone concert, and Mouse talks about her family vacation in Puerta Vallarta, Mexico. Warning: if you’re squeamish about pool attack iguanas or ticks, skip this part. Mouse gets CoolSculpting done on her belly and gets into her feelings on body image, curves, self care, diet and exercise. Hear the whole description of how this fat tummy blasting works and visit our Facebook Group Mouse and Weens to see the behind the scenes stomach at the medical spa. Write in with your self care thoughts! Yanni pops up to add to our conversation about car washes, massage, saxophone vs pan flute, and Kenny G. And the sisters reminisce about roller skating, the 80’s, boys with feathered hair, Steve Perry, white jeans, Ralph Macchio, Bruce Willis, and Mouse’s celebrity sighting of the hot Karate Kid villain William Zabka in the eighties. Don’t miss this episode. It will tickle your upper upper lip! (Original air date July 2018, Episode 23)
