The Big Boo Cast, Episode 172

I am sad to tell you that Melanie’s issues with chicken in general and thick chicken nuggets in particular continue, so we spend a good bit of time discussing her chicken-related options in this episode. We also talk about my family’s recent trip to a show choir competition (it was glorious) as well as our excitement that college baseball is with us once again.

Then, as usual, we share a little bit of what we’re watching and reading, and we settle a miscommunication re: Melanie’s feelings about a tote bag I’ve been eyeing. If I sound like I was desperate for her approval, it’s because, well, I was.

I’m sure you understand. :-)

Enjoy, everybody!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 171

We may not have watched the Oscars this year, but that doesn’t stop us from having big opinions about 1) the dresses and 2) the current relationship status of Mindy Kaling and BJ Novak. In this episode we discuss both topics in great detail. We also talk about the fact that college baseball starts this weekend (!!!), and I dig into my thoughts about the State / A&M women’s basketball game this past Sunday (here’s a hint: both teams were fantastic).

It will not surprise you to learn that Melanie shares some beauty product updates (she is breathing, after all), and she has also discovered a new serum she can’t wait to try. Her skin care persistence is both inspiring and admirable.

Enjoy, y’all.
