You Give Love A Bad Name: ODO 82


I’m a whole new kind of sick this week, having woken up with a sinus infection, but that wont keep me down. This week I’m chatting about having recently moved our youngest son out of our bedroom at last. The news brings us tales of relationships, from finding a new boyfriend, to marriage complications, and all the way to “death do us part.” The “Jackass of The Week” proves that it’s never too early to get a good deal. Finally, I make a hard tone change for this week’s Recommended Listening feature, “Sunshine and PowerCuts.”

ODO 81: Landscaping Woes, Meatless Balls, and Other “Podcasts We Listen To”


After being kept up extra late with a couple sick boys, I’m getting sick myself, but “the show must go on!” After my sick boys chat, things turn toward my recent HOA “violation” and my twisted history with those. Oddly it all ends up back on landscaping for some reason. The news brings tales of mistaken identity, death threats, and a national emergency. In my sick brain I completely forgot to do the Jackass of the Week, but that’s fine because I went extra long talking about this week’s “Recommended Listening” feature, “Podcasts We Listen To.”
