Did you ever write something and think about how it'll come out. In your head you sound smart and articulate. But then you record it and it's less than planned? That's this podcast. For me....#YesToAllWoman because I felt the need to edit myself. I also felt that I started to sound like I'm whining when I was trying to talk about something important to me. Show notes:

  • LASIK surgery isn't bad
  • Jim Butcher released the latest in the Dresden Files book, Skin Game
  • 2 Nerds 1 Podcast plays a zork game written by the talented Joe Harvey. Tim Church plays along and together they are incredible entertaining.
  • I talk about feminism and misogyny
  • The important points: being inclusive is better than exclusive
  • Shitting on another group doesn't elevate your group
  • Be respectful of one another
  • #YesAllWomen
  • Please support the things I love...oh and review me on itunes?

Show Notes:

  • We are all beautiful: Eva DeVirgilis is a make up artist and actress. She tells how women always apologize for being ugly. Even though she constantly tells many of the women who sit in her chair that they are beautiful, she is equally critical of herself. It's worth the 10 mins to watch! http://spillway.ca/blog/2014/05/14/we-are-all-beautiful/
  • Louie has the most amazing episode about fat girls! http://youtu.be/KFdWcNJ17YY It is so weird hearing the words in my head said out loud by someone else. I love the way the scene breaths. Louis CK really lets his episodes unfold. Nothing ever feels rushed or forced. This monologue is brilliant.
  • Pete Holmes has been killing it this week! Pete "Sherlock" holmes? Genius. Then on Thursday he has this monologue: http://youtu.be/PUeHeLIwd38
  • If you do not like you life, start telling yourself better stories.

This episode is dedicated to Helen M. Plummer aka Nonnie.  She worked at CVS. Though her relentless positivity and friendliness she became an icon at the University of Rhode Island.  Anyone who has ever shopped at the CVS near the Kingston RI campus knows the phrase "Have an excellent."  I hope wherever she is, she is having an excellent!
