Tis the season for parties, and this week's episode is no exception. We are joined by Sean from Nectar Sunglasses, and no joke Pat is back. We all try our hand at making the perfect Eggnog for the party, and we will learn if the best Eggnog is made by hand, by throwing money at it, or by going with the basics. We also hear the story of the elusive Christmas Camel. It doesn't visit all for Christmas, but those that it does are blessed for an entire year. Happy New Year my friends!
Photographers and artists see the world through a different lens and this week we are joined by two of our friends Susan and Sean who make a living doing just that. With a slight shift in perspective even an innocent movie like Big can take on an entirely different light, or a seemingly fun Ernest movie can take a tragic turn. Becoming a Scout Leader seems like stand up move, but being on the other side can help you appreciate just how hard it can be to find the right mentors. We learn of a man who simply watched a game show with a varied focus and it allowed him to cash in time and time again. Alex Trebeck has a game show that caters to the smart, but a slip of the tongue lets us know how he really feels. One thing that doesn't change no matter how you look at it is when someone tells the same story twice...unfortunately that happens as well.
This week we are joined by Ray Bullock from the legendary 9:55 Comedy Club, and Fools Day Comedy Troupe. Having a comedian around this time of year can really help you to find the funny in what can often be an increasingly stressful time of year. What doesn't help is when a negative story about about Santa shows up under our tree wrapped in the guise of a heartfelt story...I guess they can't all be John Cena. We are reminded of the frustrations encountered at Starbucks, and learn of the simple joy of Tim Horton's. To top it off we learn that Klingons and Dogs can get along, and if those two corners of the universe can join in harmony then I think it should be easy for all of us to focus on the good this holiday season.
When one is left alone you never know what is going to come of it. Ely was left alone and he almost managed to destroy a boat, but a lesson was learned in how tools can help next time. We witness many a mustache left alone to grow, and the surprising amount of good they can do when they pool their strengths. Kids are often left alone, and many of them turn to games that appear to not really have a point or end. When a house is left alone these days it can still be vacuumed, and we learn some finer points of how this can be done. Other times hands left alone are simply the devils plaything.
Trees are falling at a tremendous rate this week. Some trees spend their whole life marching towards the inevitable fate of ending up in a bucket of water in a house for a few weeks. Other trees grow to tremendous heights only to drop one ill timed branch and trigger the destruction of many. We have stories of both kinds this week, but with no help from our soundboard. We realize that Budweiser pulled a fast one on Chicago fans, and a bottle of Mallort has finally arrived with similarly disappointing results. At least two people are going to be happy as we reveal our November contest winners.
