The Big Boo Cast, Episode 72

bigboographic

Okay first of all Melanie has some internet issues on this podcast – she cuts in and out at times – and while the (lack of) internet service is unfortunate, I will say that she mines her inconvenience for some comedy gold. BE WARNED, AT&T. We also talk about our ongoing efforts to eat better and exercise more, and as you will hear we are just as thrilled as we can be about all of that.

Also on this podcast: some thoughts on the Grammys, foods we crave the most, how I found myself in an unspoken treadmill competition last week, my obsession with SEC women’s basketball, and Melanie’s elaborate skin care routine.

Then we tried to talk about books but I couldn’t remember the names of the books I’ve read recently so we’ll pick up with that topic next time.

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 71

Well, the big news at the beginning of this podcast is that Melanie is snack mom for Caroline’s soccer team, so we have a lengthy conversation about budgeting and price awareness and our limitations as household managers. We also spend some time talking about Melanie’s feelings about chicken that’s already off the bone, salsas we enjoy, goals for TV watching, and some exciting new cosmetic finds.

There’s also a considerable amount of discussion about our optimal lighting and how maybe we’re facing some skincare issues that make-up can’t fix.

We also talk about why we can’t talk about some stuff related to some writing stuff (and other assorted vagueries). But other than that it’s all very specific.

We surely do hope you enjoy it.

The Basketball Is A Fine Diversion
