Episode 40: Payphone Sighting

You NEED to be wearing underwear under your tights.

This is our fool-proof itinerary for 4 days in LA! Kinda.

We started our long weekend at Pasadena City Hall. Parks and Rec used this for it’s exterior shots of Pawnee City Hall. Are there palm trees outside in Parks & Rec?!

“The building has masqueraded as San Francisco in both Rumor Has It and Charmed, Napa Valley in A Walk in the Clouds, Spain in American Pie 2, Beverly Hills in both Beverly Hills, 90210 and Beverly Hills Cop II, the Middle East in the Mission: Impossibletelevision series, and the fictional European country Tomainia in Charlie Chaplin’s The Great Dictator.” - LA Magazine

The biggest bottle of Hennessy EVER.

Griffith Park Observatory - IT’S FREEEEEEE! Check out their website here. If you live in LA you HAVE TO GO. LIKE RIGHT NOW. GO GO GO!

Day 2 - The Huntington! Beautiful gardens and presumably lovely exhibits (although we didn’t see those parts) Terrific gift shop! Would recommend.

Also, Kirsten had wedding part deux! We saw the biggest bottle of Hennessy ever made. Probably.

Day, the third: A bunch of people had recommended the La Brea Tar Pits. Honestly, was solidly ok. Nice skulls though.

Our last day was spent at Santa Monica Pier. Stephanie won a stuffed prize after defeating her mother and brother-in-law at whack-a-mole. A sea lion was fed. It was a good day.

Stephanie went to a rave! check out the DJ’s she met on their instagram:



She also met a technicolor tiger! Check them out here.

One should probably prepare for their first rave - something Stephanie did NOT do. Here are a couple of articles with some tips for first-timers. (Here and Here) Tips like:

  • Wear comfy shoes

  • Go out of your way to meet people

  • Have a Kandi-making party

  • Stay hydrated, hydrated, hydrated


 You may want to brush up on some cool rave slang too! Here’s a great example of a word Stephanie continues to misuse.

Definition: A device typically designed to catch and retain an animal.

Rave Definition: A style of electronic music emerging from Southern hip-hop, which incorporates 808 bass kick drums, triple hi-hats, and layered synths.

Episode 28: Oops! All Icy

It is obscenely hot pretty much everywhere. Here are some tips for keeping cool.

  • Use A/C if you have it!
  • Use fans if you don't!
  • Eat lots and lots of ice cream and popsicles (for fun and for comfort)

Here is a link to all those UK historical sites Stephanie mentioned in this week's episode. I guess the heat is good for something after all!


Heatwaves are no joke. As of the end of July, 27 people have died in South Korea this year from the heat. Read about it here. And remember to check on folks who are at risk in hot weather!

On a similar note: DON'T LEAVE ANIMALS IN HOT CARS YOU DINGUSES! We looked up the law in Washington (see below) but you should check your local laws as well!

Leave or confine any animal in unattended motor vehicle or enclosed space—Class 2 civil infraction—Officers’ authority to reasonably remove animal.
(1) It is a class 2 civil infraction under RCW 7.80.120 to leave or confine any animal unattended in a motor vehicle or enclosed space if the animal could be harmed or killed by exposure to excessive heat, cold, lack of ventilation, or lack of necessary water.
(2) To protect the health and safety of an animal, an animal control officer or law enforcement officer who reasonably believes that an animal is suffering or is likely to suffer harm from exposure to excessive heat, cold, lack of ventilation, or lack of necessary water is authorized to enter a vehicle or enclosed space to remove an animal by any means reasonable under the circumstances if no other person is present in the immediate area who has access to the vehicle or enclosed space and who will immediately remove the animal. An animal control officer, law enforcement officer, or the department or agency employing such an officer is not liable for any damage to property resulting from actions taken under this section.
(3) Nothing in this section prevents the person who has confined the animal in the vehicle or enclosed space from being convicted of separate offenses for animal cruelty under RCW 16.52.205 or 16.52.207.
— Revised Code of Washington 16.52.340

Finally, Stephanie remembered what the UKers call sweatpants! JOGGERS?!?! Or TRACKIE BOTTOMS!?!?! What a wild, magical place.

Mohr Please! Friends of the Show

We wanted to share some photos of Kirsten's dragon boat adventures, but realized her co-workers might object. So, here is a generic dragon boat picture instead! 

Here are some truly delightful Golden Girls fun facts. This one is absolutely amazing: 

19. Princess Diana and Freddie Mercury were also both reportedly fans of the show. According to UK comedian, Cleo Rocos, the two once spent an afternoon drinking champagne while watching reruns of the show with the volume down and improvising lines with “a much naughtier storyline.”

This Mental Floss article provides such a fun game to play! You can pair a matching cheesecake with episodes of the show! Check it out here.

We cannot wait to watch the weird hotel-based spin-off: Golden Palace. With Don Cheadle?! Who knew?

Episode 24: Naked Canadians



Who doesn't love fun facts? Check out this and this for fun CANADIAN facts!


Did a little googling about Lord Stanley and learned a thing or two! He was the sixth Governor General of Canada from 1888-1893. He gave Canada the Stanley Cup in 1892, which was originally called the Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup. And in 1945 he was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame as a "Honored Builder".

Manitoba LOVES snakes. They keep them in pits, like the Narcisse Snake Pits! Read more about their subterranean cave snakes here.

Lord Stanley!

Learn how to make delicious Nanaimo Bars! Watch the video above!

Finally, two different approaches to accidently crossing the US/Canadian border. The Canadian approach and the US approach. This is why people like Canadians better.
