I'm logging out for a few days, Pham. I need a break from the news and we don't have a Dumpster Fire this week, so I'm going to try to get in touch with God or something. I'll post today's writing prompt as well as the next 3 days worth. I might pop in and out of here but just to post stuff. I really don't want to know what is going on in the world unless I have to. Love you all so much!
This is what you are missing, plebs. #DumpsterFire
We come up with another idea for a YouTube series. Because we don't have enough to do...
A little reminiscence on Cousin Maggie's 40th Birthday. We discuss that time Bridget almost became a stripper.
Dave Rubin joins Bridget for his second appearance on the podcast. They talk the long-term effects and changes brought about by social distancing, staying in touch with friends and family now more than ever, no longer looking at the world through a political party lens, how to support small businesses during the shut down, and wonder if the government can't help people in a time like this, what's the point of government. They share their small successes, like Dave's new garden and Bridget's perfect loaf of sourdough, discuss how irrelevant things like the NBA and celebrities have become, and offer show and movie recommendations. They also cover the future of the Democratic party, how government is all about solving another problem it created and discuss Dave's new book Don't Burn This Book.
Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.
We might not have any control over the news cycle—but we can control our habits and attitude. It all starts with us. And hopefully a little piece of that will start here.
I take unplugging very seriously.
On a 17 hour road trip to see my brother in law graduate from flight school in Washington. Camping in the Jeep on our way out and on our way home will be the perfect way to unplug.
Hope you all have a fantastic day and weekend. The world is pretty gorgeous and I'm really glad I get to see it all. Hope you have the chance to unplug and do the same.
First and third pictures are camping in the mountains of Montana (it got a little chilly 🤷🏻♀️). Second picture is Painted Canyon in North Dakota.
