E39 – Worst Dates



Our holiday catch-up includes Idaho, Cowboy Denny, sledding, sleighs, elk and party stories. We also get into the LA scene, and the difference between there and the San Diego suburbs. By the way, we are making Weens’ New Year’s Resolution to promote herself! On the horizon are February events with the Bad At Love Podcast co-host Tamu, and another event by our podcast pals at My Worst Date podcast. Speaking of worst dates, hear Mouse’s near-pee experience with a cute surfer boy, and Weens’ night with a lab coat wearing bone scientist. We move into the car as we go on a San Diego tour and chat with our friend, Bachata Jen. She gives us the skinny on the New York dating scene, both with online guys and with movers, and has some great bad date stories and relationship perspectives.

E24 Platonic Friends, Good Cop Bad Cop, Ball Questions, and Bachata



There is a heat wave and it hit 116 degrees in Burbank and thunderstorms in arid San Diego. Is global warming really a hoax? Weens tells a story of her lost cat out in the Joshua Tree desert and mom’s Lawrence of Arabia search with her friend Blake. We discuss whether or not men and women can truly be platonic friends. Weens says yes, once any relationship or flirting is out of the system, which backs up Mouse’s hypothesis that the scales of attraction are always tipped one way or another at some point. What do you think? We then get into inside joke talk and you’ll hear about “All Red” and “Popcorn Balls”. It’s so hard to describe what makes an inside joke funny. Speaking of balls, we have many ball questions – How do they sit? For a visual, Mouse suggests the first episode of the Sarah Silverman show “I Love You, America”, complete with nudists and full frontal, breaking down the barriers of our hangup with bodies. Do guys adjust balls or penis? Which filmmaker explained to Weens and a famous puppeteer what bat wings are? Naturally, testicle Q and A transitions into parenting and who between Mouse and her husband is the rule enforcer during the long summer. One is the good cop, and one is the bad cop. We talk about the Mr. Rogers documentary movie “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”. Weens gives her review, talks about the rare scene she witnessed in the movie theater, and we get into the lessons learned. Lastly, Weens interviews her childhood friend Jennifer who is visiting her in LA. Jen gets onto the subject of her favorite latin dance from the Dominican Republic, the Bachata, and we learn what it means with its moves, lyrics, and style, even “hearing” it danced!
