Apr 2018

This week our special guest is Cathy Marshall!

After introductions, the LOTSL Gang talk about some odd dreams they've had, including FLYING dreams!

A long conversation about Facebook.  Facebook users: If you’re going to cancel your FB account… JUST SHUT UP ABOUT IT AND DO IT! SHEESH, enough already! Plus: Targeted and micro-targeted FB advertisements and disingenuous responses from FB itself.  And then, weird, but very telling FB advertisements that mysteriously show up on your feed.

EVERYONE IS OUT TO SCREW YOU! The trials and tribulations of attempting to take advantage of “free” offers on the internet that turn out to be anything but free. Toppie goes, "wah, wah wah..."!

Brenda’s witness did good.

ThatPeterG introduces a new product called… “sliced ketchup”. Science and fake flavors! Convenience foods available at the touch of a button!

Chatting up strangers: The LOTSL gang concludes the show with a look at day to day mundane human interactions. What is Being the “truck” friend? People are guarded against letting in new potential friends.  Brenda gives an update on her new crafting group get-togethers. Why we just want to stay home. Jay’s dinner group is going well.  Toppie’s sweet mammo’s social group. Don’t the Shit Lister’s enjoy chit-chatting with strangers? Meanwhile, Cathy’s chat with a stranger led to them living together!  Red hats, purple hats and junk.

The LOTSL gang start by bitching about the time change.

Brenda Boo is all up in that classic Golden Girls TV series.

Toppie Smellie versus his computer in the game of chess leads into a discussion of other old-time computer games. Then… somehow this brings Toppie to the subject of pigeons, only he gets completely mixed up on his pigeons before lamenting the tragic demise of the passenger pigeon, which he mistakenly calls a Carrier pigeon. Which is wrong. 

Jay the Hauntcub leads a much more coherent talk about the traditions and customs surrounding death. The LOTSL gang all share their experiences attending funerals.

Toys R Us stores are closing, so the LOTSL gang trade stories about being kids and loving to hang around the toy isles. PLUS! Peeking at the male models in the underwear section of catalogues, and giraffes are weird.

Driving coincidences explained.

Brenda introduces the LOTSL crew to the concept of “Bullet Journals”and what one does with them. Also, what the hell is a “Zen-Tangle”???

Doc Stone has gotten himself a fountain pen and his hands are ink-free!!

We play a Golden Girls Mad-Lib!

Finally, we wrap it all up with this question from Brenda: If you could only watch ONE sit-com for the rest of your life, what sit-com would it be?
