Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey

We got a shock this week and learned that our beloved home of Texas was going to be slammed by the first category 4 hurricane to hit the Lone Star State since the 1960s! Not exactly what we had planned for this weekend!

Listen in as we talk about what all this category business means, other storms we have weathered, and how we are fairing on Saturday, the first day after the storm made rainfall. We plan to have an update episode later in the week to let you know how everything went and assure you (hopefully!) that we are still kicking!

Liz is riding out the storm at her home halfway between Houston and Galveston, while Heather is experiencing the storm in the middle of Houston. Make sure you follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to see the latest posts and how we are doing!

Be safe out there!! If you are in need of assistance, please call your local authorities before it is too late!

Traditions – Holiday Music

Hello, Sunny 99.1 who starts playing exclusively Christmas music the week of Thanksgiving through the end of the year. Drinking games revolving around Christmas music in the car are not advisable by Nerdy Bitches Podcast. We will not be responsible for your DUI.

  • Holly Jolly Christmas
  • Trans Siberian Orchestra – Carol of the Bells
  • Jingle Bell Rock
  • Old-School Christmas CDs from the 90s, including A Very Special Christmas
Traditions – Gift Giving Tips

Warnings for new couples – don’t give your SO something sexual, trips, hotels, etc. It’s awkward. Lingerie is NOT a gift for a woman…everyone knows its for you. Your dick is NOT a gift. The naughty should only be a part of something bigger. So, think ahead and try not to run someone off by being a weirdo.

  • Gift cards
  • Stocking stuffers (Candy, little special things, As Seen on TV things, etc.)
  • For friends in small homes/apartments – unitaskers take up too much room. Be mindful of their space issues.
  • Amazon Wish Lists are awesome. If you don’t have one, get one. It makes things much easier for those people who want to get you a gift.
What the Fuck is an Elf on the Shelf??

Santa sends the elf Thanksgiving night to spy on the children and report back each night to Santa on whether or not they are being naughty or nice. Some elves are more naught and mischievous than others. We are perplexed by this whole business.

Episode 13 – Guilty Pleasures

Guilty PleasureWelcome to Episode 13 – Guilty Pleasures! This episode, Liz and Heather talk about their favorite guilty pleasures and what makes them guilty. Could it be social acceptability of age-related interests? Am I too old to do these things?

What makes it guilty?

  • Food – It isn’t good for you or is deemed “lower quality”. Shut up. We like corn dogs.
  • Social – Smoking. Man, the looks you get when you are a smoker. The worst are former smokers!! It is not your place to be healthy on my behalf. Imposing your views on someone else is not ok. And the breastfeeding/formula debate? Just feed your kid!

Why do people try to make us feel guilty? Or are they trying to make us guilty or is that our own internal dialog? Heather thinks that people don’t give a shit (too busy with their own stuff) and Liz thinks they do, because it gives them the ability to feel better about their own stuff.

Monster Truck Shows, Bouncy Castles

Our Guilty Pleasures:

  • Liz – Coloring books. LOVE them. I can’t draw to save my ass, so this is a great way for me to get out my creative expression. Recent coloring books: Unicorns are Jerks, Mer-World Problems, and Dinosaurs with Jobs (available on Amazon). Unicorns are Jerks
  • Heather – Roller Derby – taking a class on how to play roller derby. A lot of fun and a lot of learning (especially how to fall). This is a young gals game, but I’m still having a lot of fun. derby

Food is a huge pleasure – guilty or not. Wavy Lays, a whole box of Twinkies, Little Debbie snack cakes. Easy Cheese (spray cheese) – delicious. Ranch dressing – it is the universal condiment…it goes on anything!! 2,000 calorie salads? Yes, please. Miracle Whip vs. Mayo.

TV – Glee; MASH; Cosby Show; Frasier – Now we can get sucked in to binge watching our favorite guilty pleasure shows, thanks to Netflix.

Books – Crappy romance novels (Twilight), kids books (Ramona the Pest), chick-lit/girl porn, Sookie Stackhouse books, Shopaholic series, Young Adult (YA) novels – And WE LOVE E-READERS!! They are the best thing in the world for hiding the fact that you are reading something trashy.

Movies – Shawshank Redemption (is it guilty or just good??); Bad network tv movies – Cobra; Eraser, Commando, Predator, The Running Man (These are basically the exact same movie – trust me). FYI – Rae Dawn Chong is actually the daughter of Tommy Chong.

Food Porn – Pinterest, Instagram, Food Network

Stalking People You Hate on the Internet – Former flames, people we hated forever, etc. It’s addicting to see how people are crashing and burning on social media.

 

Bitch of the Week: Schizophrenic Social Media – That super religious person on Sunday, but back to being a psychotic bitch on Monday. We also feel that God would be upset with making assumptions on his behalf (telling other people that God hates them for whatever).

 

Recommendations:

  • Heather: Marian Keyes (Books) (Check Here)
  • Liz: The Marriage Series by Jennifer Probst – Chick-lit / Girl porn – well written, not overt or disgusting. It’s a four book series, so start with the first one, as they build on each other.

Out of Context Internet Comment

Twilight – A girl’s choice between necrophilia and bestiality.

Reminder about our next book club choice – The Divergent Series by Veronica Roth (Episode 16). Be sure to read all three books, as there WILL be spoilers! Big ones!!

We talk about Pinterest followers and basic Pinterest etiquette.

Things that we like to pin:

  • Shit we want.
  • Food. We like to eat.
  • Geeky stuff.
  • Things we would love to do in our home, but never will.
  • Digital hoarding.
  • Fan art, tattoos, etc. that we love, but can’t afford to buy.
  • Recommendations for our podcast (go check our site here).
  • FONTS!
  • Organizational tips

Pinterest can be so fun, but it can also be a massive time-suck. It is a procrastinator’s dream! Imagine a place where people can find a Golden Girls cross-stitch pattern (and buy it), find a new recipe that you just HAVE to try, Harry Potter house scarves, AND people with your same sense of humor? This is your place.

The visual part of Pinterest is so much better than using Bookmarks in your browser. It makes it easier to remember things that you have seen and want to use/try/do. We probably would have never found Etsy without the wonder of Pinterest!! And that, friends, would be a real shame. Also, CROCHETED SHARK SOCKS!!!!

Our Mr. Massingil Award and Bitch of the Week goes to (from Tinder): Josh. Wow.

Tangent – Online dating. Yikes!

Recommendations:

  • Liz: Firefly (TV series) and Serenity (Movie) – Available on Netflix
  • Heather: Chuck (TV series) – Available on Netflix

So, sit back with your iPad or laptop and listen to us talk about Pinterest.
