Chicken Boy and Bacon!

Today’s episode, “Chicken Boy and Bacon,” is on Apple Podcasts, SpotifyOvercast, Libsyn, Pocket CastStitcher, iHeartRadio, or anywhere you listen to podcasts.

It’s SEPTEMBER. There are officially 21 days til Fall, 61 days til Halloween, 87 days til Thanksgiving, 116 days til Christmas, and, perhaps most importantly, 122 days til we can slam the damn door on 2020. People were shaking their heads saying, “What a year!” starting in March, we’re pretty sure, but now humankind is getting super close to closing it out for good. Has anyone checked the Mayan calendar to be SURE they weren’t actually talking about 2020? No? Could…you…you know…could someone do that just to be sure this isn’t actually the year we blow to smithereens?

But we’re getting way ahead of ourselves. Today, it’s still September, and only just, so we’re kicking off the month with a slew of subjects you can celebrate each and every day of the month. September kind of puts August to shame in its American and International days of observance, tbh. In today’s podcast, we mention some of the more quirky days such as No Rhyme or Reason Day, Lazy Mom’s Day, multiple Pizza Days and National Cheeseburger Day. But National Food Bank Day, World Beard Day, National Read a Book Day, National Ants on a Log Day, and National Teddy Bear Day are runners up if you’re interested in observing the off-beat. You can find the entire list of fun, sublime, and serious topics at nationaldaycalendar.com.

Although there were tons of days to talk about, Kym and Kris chose one day each to discuss in-depth, and you can’t get more adventurous and fun than CHICKEN BOY and BACON. As we said in the show, it really sounds like a fantastic premise to a new comic book and if anyone decides to do it just give us credit for the concept ya’ll!!

CHICKEN BOY

Today, September 1 is National Chicken Boy Day. We’ve never heard of it, and it’s got its roots here in California! For more information about Chicken Boy, and even better…how to observe this amazing day (including that link to the downloadable art to color and hashtag), go here or click on the sub-head above for the Wikipedia page.

But the place to be for all things Chicken Boy is at chickenboy.com where you can buy your fill of souvenirs, tee-shirts, and really geek out reading the blog. We seriously don’t understand how we’ve never known any of this before.

Talking about the Chicken Boy statue prompted a whole discussion about the various statues we’ve grown up with here in Orange County, CA:

Bob’s Big Boy

How many of our listeners and readers ate at a Bob’s Big Boy restaurant growing up? We miss that good old burger and fries diner experience. There are a few left in Southern California, but not many (5 to be exact). You can get a complete list of the restaurant’s locations throughout the United States here.

Jack’s Chicken Broaster

As we discuss in the episode, the rooster that used to be in front of Jack’s Chicken Broaster in Orange, CA, is now sitting atop the same building, but with a new eatery called Taqueria El Nuevo Perico #2. That broasted chicken and potato wedges dinner was the best we’ve ever had.

The rooster is still atop what used to be Jack’s Chicken Broaster, and is now a Mexican restaurant in Orange, CA. Photo courtesy Kris Core. All rights reserved.

Hitch-N-Post

And just up the street from the rooster (literally, they are about a mile and a half apart on East Chapman Ave as you head for the hills), you’ll see the Red HP Horse standing proudly on top of the old Hitch-N-Post tack and feed store.

Western Exterminators

Apparently the Western Exterminators statue (named, ironically, “Little Man”) that we remember seeing on the 55 Freeway South (in Santa Ana, CA) is well documented along with it’s fellows in other locations throughout California. Roadside Architecture’s website is devoted to, well, roadside architecture, and they have a nice history about Little Man toward the bottom of the page, with dates and statue locations.

Truly Nolen

Kym brought up the yellow, mouse-costumed cars we see zipping around and we got half the name correct. The company is Truly Nolen, and while their cars are not the same as the huge fiberglass statues we discussed, they have an honorary place in this discussion because CUTE!

There’s something odd about being a pest exterminator riding in a car disguised as a mouse. Very meta. Photo is courtesy Wikipedia and is in the public domain.

BACON

There was almost as much to talk about bacon as there was Chicken Boy. Literally, we’re still hungry from all that good food talk. International Bacon Day is celebrated worldwide the first Saturday of September, so this year it’s September 5th. And because bacon is so perfect, it is celebrated TWICE a year in America, with NATIONAL Bacon Day on December 30! Here is a list of all the things we discussed about bacon (and a couple Kris forgot):

  • WHATEVER Day. Do you really need to know whether it’s international or national? Just remember….SEPTEMBER 5 and DECEMBER 30 are BACON DAYS. Here is the website with more information about this week’s day of baconalia.
  • Chug-a-Lug! Kris was going to discuss bacon-flavored drinks, but forgot. So here’s maple-bacon flavored coffee, bacon-flavored soda, and bacon-inspired cocktail recipes. You’re welcome.
  • Time to Pig Out. (Sorry not sorry). Today.com has a list of recipes to cook up for bacon day and foodformat.com has weird recipes with bacon. This should tide you over til December 30.
  • Do You Smell That? Bacon perfume. It’s real. In the 1920’s, John Farginnay, a Parisian butcher, perfected a secret formula to happiness and it smelled like bacon. The formula was lost in a fire, but apparently years later someone has figured it all out and now you can buy the scent, aptly named “bacon” (with a line above the o that we can’t add, because stupid editing software), which you can buy at farginnay.com
  • Pucker Up! Click here for bacon flavored lip balm.
  • Mouthwatering Bacon Facts. Website bacontoday.com has the article, 17 Mouthwatering Facts About Bacon.
  • More Bacon Facts. And more information at fee.org in this article, 15 Economic, Historical, and Health Facts about Bacon.
  • And…More Bacon Facts. Website littlethings.com brings us Bacon Facts: 10 Things You Seriously Never Knew About the Delicious Strips.

ALL THE OTHER THINGS

This is where we clarify, correct, and generally eat crow for the things we say without actually knowing what we’re talking about.

  • Private Label. This is what the “Private Label” is that Kris has never heard of. It’s NOT the name of a company, but refers to a third party manufacturer. Hey, we aren’t business majors, so pffffffft.
  • The Rabbit Didn’t Die. Apparently Welsh Rarebit was originally called Welsh Rabbit, but changed to Welsh Rarebit because no rabbits were ever harmed in the making of it and it was misleading to name it as such. Good to know! Actually, it sounds yummy.
  • Shout of Dolores. Wow. We had no idea. Mexican hero Miguel Hidalgo is credited with the battle cry for independence in the town of Dolores. Shout of Dolores Day is September 15, followed on the 16th by Mexico’s official Independence Day. Cinco de Mayo, on the other hand, is NOT a day to celebrate Mexican independence, but in fact is in remembrance of one battle during the Franco-Mexican War. It’s not celebrated so much in Mexico, but is very much a thing here in the states.
  • Psychological Disorder. Pica is a psychological disorder, and is outlined here. AND yes, eating ice is considered part of this disorder, and is called pagophagia.
  • What’s Yours? My Strange Addiction is the TLC show Kris was referencing. Do you have a strange or weird addiction? Let us know!
  • Ewwwww! So if you’re interested in seeing that pimple popping, um, toy (?) featured on Shark Tank…here you go. And EW.
  • If You Haven’t Lost Your Appetite. Hopefully we haven’t crushed your soul with that last entry. For that Weinerschnitzel restaurant offer for pumpkin spice goodies, check out their specials page. Apparently they had a coupon for last year for a free dipped soft serve, but we can’t find one for this year. It’s worth following them on their Twitter account if you’re interested!
  • True Crush All The Time. If you’re into true crime, you’ve got to give True Crime All the Time and True Crime All the Time Unsolved podcasts a listen. The production for both shows is great, the hosts (Mike Ferguson and Mike “Gibby” Gibson) have great charisma and charm, but most importantly they really sincerely honor the victims and their families as they tell the stories. Just don’t tell Gibby Kris is crushing on him. SHHHHHHH. It’s our secret. ShhhZIPIT.

Ok, that’s it. Whew!

All Things Fall

Today’s episode “All Things Fall” is on  iTunes/Apple PodcastsSpotifyOvercastLibsynPocket CastStitcher or anywhere you listen to podcasts.

From a gravitational standpoint, yes, all things fall. Well, maybe not ALL things. We’re kind of sure there are some things that never fall like…liiiiiike…hey…who do you think you’re reading, Neil Degrasse Tyson? This is The Mugly Truth! You know when we say, “ALL THINGS FALL,” we mean, “IT’S AUTUMN BABY!” Mhhmm. Yes ma’am. Yesterday was officially the first day of Fall (America)/Autumn (UK). We are so happy we actually pulled our sweaters out of mothballs (even though in Southern California “Fall” still means “Summer”).

We talk about some fun facts having to do with this time of year, as well as some pumpkin trivia. And because Kris (ok, surprise….me) is still sick, this blog is gonna be short. So to get straight to the point, here are some links to all (most??) of the things we talk about in today’s episode:

How To Make Your Own Pumpkin Spice

If you want to go all mathy on us and increase that mixture for future baking purposes, measure up to your heart’s content. We’re willing to bet a bit of that sprinkled over some good greek yogurt or a scoop of vanilla ice cream would be heavenly.

As for that Pumpkin Spiced Coffee Syrup recipe created by Stephanie Van Luven at allrecipes.com, check this spicey goodness out…with photos, videos, and nutritional details.

Summertime Clues

Today’s episode “Summertime Clues” is on  iTunes/Apple PodcastsSpotifyOvercastLibsynPocket CastStitcher or anywhere you listen to podcasts.

Why did we call today’s episode “Summertime Clues”? Because if you listen you’ll discover we have no clue about anything in today’s show! We start of with such a great topic: The End of Summer. And we quickly derail just by talking about watermelon. Watermelon derailed us. Listen. You’ll get it. How could anyone not be confused by watermelon? We’re still baffled. And slightly unnerved. Even Google left us with more questions than answers. For shame Google. So, yeah, we talk about some interesting summer and August facts but for every new thing we tried to learn it seemed like we left with more stuff we needed to find out. We left the episode clueless. Ergo the title of the show. But redemption is here!! Thank goodness for this blog. Because the summertime clues blues have been cured! We have answers! We love the interwebs.

Does Hobby Lobby Sell Halloween Decorations?

Why yes, HL does sell Halloween decorations! HL definitely does not turn it’s back on guaranteed profit so gladly gives the public plenty of cute Halloween decor to choose from. Who knew? (DUH. Not us. Obviously.) For more details, check out Hobby Lobby’s website. But if you are into the horror, gory, gross stuff, sorry, you won’t find it. But because we are so excited about shopping for Halloween (and it is our pleasure to help you find that perfect witch, skeleton or spooky ghoul over the next month – yes, people, you only have one more month until OCTOBER) here are a bunch more opportunities to find what you want:
Target
Walmart
Michael’s
Home Depot
Lowes
Amazon
Spirithalloween.com

Tenant vs. Tenet vs. Tennant

Kris knows these words are not only pronounced differently, they mean different things, and also she knows what they each mean. But occasionally Kris’ mouth and brain do not sync up, therefore when she thought “tenet,” she said “tenant.” It happens to the best of people. But mostly a lot to Kris. Just in case you were wondering:
Ten·et  /ˈtenət/ (noun) : a principle or belief, especially one of the main principles of a religion or philosophy.
Ten.ant /ˈtenənt/ (noun) : a person who occupies land or property rented from a landlord.
Speaking of lords…
Ten.nant /ˈtenənnt/ (noun) : an actor, especially known for portraying the Doctor in Doctor Who, Barty Crouch Jr. in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and Demon Crowley in Good Omens, also referred to as David Tennant.

We’ll Take What is an Inflatable Snowman for $200

Kris was talking about putting a snowman decoration on her balcony for Christmas, but worried the neighbor would be pissed off. Just in case you were wondering – because, again, the thoughts in the head don’t seem to want to come to the mouth part of communication – that whole part of what kind of snowman would piss off the neighbor sort of disappeared into the ether. That would be an INFLATABLE snowman. Inflatable lawn decorations = motors = annoying noise = angry neighbor = no inflatable decorations on Kris’ balcony ever. Please note that very important keyword “lawn”…this is a big clue as to who should actually invest in those things.

Are We Heading for a Warm Winter?

We ponder if having a mild summer means we’ll have a hotter autumn and winter or will it be colder? According to this website, it’s pretty much impossible to tell, so, yeah, if you’re hoping for your autumn/winter seasons to be predicted by the kind of summer we’ve had, you’re going to have to wait til it gets here like the rest of us. Seriously read the article. The folklore behind some of the methods of predicting weather are hilarious and the author has fun describing them.

What Are the Days Between End of Summer and Beginning of Fall Called?

We still don’t know! But the British tabloid The Sun just might shed some…ah…sunlight on the whole reason why it seems there are a couple days between the end of summer and beginning of fall. See what we did there? We couldn’t help it. It was right there. WAITING to be said. The British like a good pun. Hey if you’re British and you liked that pun leave us a comment. Oh, here’s the article.

Is Watermelon a Fruit or a Vegetable?

Yep. Here we go. Well, it’s both, but if you’re from Oklahoma, you know watermelon is the OFFICIAL VEGETABLE of OKLAHOMA (if we could also underline that bold italic we would). Oklahoma. Ok.LA.Ho.MA! We don’t understand. Well, we do, it’s just…why? Couldn’t you have picked something less enigmatic? Why not something like…(thinking)…you know what, we don’t even know what’s real anymore, so fine. FINE. Watermelon’s a vegetable. Pluto isn’t a planet. Have your vegetable fruit melon. Have it. The upside to all of this malarkey is that if mom says “EAT YOUR VEGETABLES!” you can go slice a hunk of watermelon, eat it, and throw some gnarly trivia back at her that you DID eat your vegetable and you LIKED it even. Wipe your dripping mouth covered in watermelon lies on your shirtsleeve and then spit those seeds that aren’t fruit on the ground for emphasis. Watermelon is a vegetable. We just…we can’t…we…completely…no words…. But here’s a link to find out wayyyy more than you ever thought was possible to know about watermelon.

First Women’s Bathing Suits Were Made From…

…Wool or flannel. Because nothing says refreshing seaside shenanigans like 20 pounds of wet, stinky wool clinging to your body. We’re wondering how many women drowned from being dragged beneath the waves in such heavy neck-to-knee (or in the 1800’s, neck-to-ankle) swimwear. Thank goodness for the Olympics in the early 1900s, which made intercollegiate swimming an official sport and shone a spotlight on the unwieldy dysfunction of the woolen suits (for men and women). For more information on women’s bathing suit history, this is a nifty article.

Can Metal Fillings in Your Mouth Attract Lightning?

Well, if you’re old enough to have amalgam fillings still, your bigger concern should be the amount of mercury toxins that have been leaking into your body all these years. Seriousy, get those removed and replaced, stat. But as for lightning striking you because of those nasty metal fillings? It’s pretty much a no-go. We’re 99.9% sure of that because we couldn’t find an answer on the first page of the Google search, but we did find this entertaining thread in response to a question asking if lightning striking you would weld your teeth together because of those fillings. Again, we’re thinking if you’re hit by lightning, there are so many other things you’ll be worrying about. Like, breathing, living, etc. Oh, here’s the CNN video of the guy almost getting hit by lightning, and a link about the guy who got hit twice (spoiler alert: fake video. Sorry Kym).

What’s a Cross-Quarter Day?

There is SO much to answer this seemingly simple question. In a nutshell, cross-quarter days have pagan origins, are associated with fire, and are usually celebrated with festivals. Imbolc, Beltane, Lammas, and Samhain (halloooo Halloween!) are cross-quarter days. For details, read this great article on Cross-Quarter Days (and Quarter-days too. Don’t ask. We are linked-out).

What is an Indian Summer?

Is Kris right or is Kym right? Drumroll please: Well, we were both on the right track. An Indian Summer is a period of unusually dry, warm weather occurring in late autumn. It also means a period of happiness or success occurring late in life. We like that version and are rooting for our own personal Indian Summers happening sooner than later.

What Does .ws Mean in a URL?

It is the internet country code for Samoa. Sleep well dear friends.

Crepuscular (and Kris May be Psychic)

This is weird. In the episode as Kris tries desperately to pronounce the word crepuscular, she states (we are paraphrasing), “this is blog entry number 12” and IT IS! Go ahead. You know you’re going to count them. We’ll wait.

See? Anyway, welcome back. Kris is PSYCHIC! Or, maybe her brain does math subconsciously and she really is a numbers genius but doesn’t know it. Either way, CREPUSCULAR is pronounced kreh-pUSk-yooler and it means “of, resembling, or relating to twilight”. Please, use in a sentence. Ok. “Team Edward and Team Jacob fans are crepuscular” No? Drat.

Aside: the girl who says the word in the Google Dictionary sounds kind of creepy. Sorry crepuscular girl. We know you’re just trying to earn a living. But your voice is actually perfect for the word, so, clap clap clap clap clap.

Abolition of Slavery

Yes, Kris, “abolition” is the word you were looking for. And let’s all just take a moment to say HELL YEAH 13th AMENDMENT!

Ah Ah Ah Ah Stayin’ Alive Goat Swagger

For the record, we’re sorry if you Googled Goats Stayin’ Alive and found this video. Although we’re not really that sorry because screaming goats are hilarious.

Chewbacca Mom

And our last but totally favorite shoutout goes to Candace Payne, aka Chewbacca Mom! Here’s her website if you’re as much a fan of her pure joy and love of Chewie as we are.
Added bonus! Here’s the video that started it all:

Here’s another video of an interview a year later in which she discusses making the viral video and how it changed her life for the better.

Finally…here’s some photos of the decorations Kris bought for bringing on the Autumnness:

Here’s Mooch the Pooch’s tush which shows either a Batman or a Motorola insignia. You be the judge. Let us know in the comments below.

Duh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh BATASS! Mooch is either a spokesdog for Batman or Motorola…you decide.

And the candid moment Kris caught Rocky the Podcat contemplating life whilst sitting on a scale staring at the wall. Raise your hand if you relate. Also, we wish more than anything in the world she captured Rocky actually staring AT the wall. Hey, does anyone notice a pattern with Kris and Kym’s animals looking at walls? Just wondering if you’re seeing it too.

Sorry Rocky. I posted this on Instagram. No way I’m not posting this here too. Love you!

Wii Be 50

Kym and Kris feel FINE!
There is a lot of stuff captured in today’s episode, but the real takeaway is Kym and Kris feel FINE AT FIFTY! Photo by Kimberly Sickel, @riverdeer 500px

Happy Tuesday! Hope everyone’s election day went…well. But enough about politics.  Today Kym and Kris get into a series of discussions ranging everywhere from the latest California wildfires to teenagers strangling their mom’s (FLORIDA KNOCK YOUR SH*T OFF) to Kym’s shopping for sub-zero temperatures clothing, how Xboxes and Wiis can be completely heartless, cruel and insensitive, and then Kris recounts her harrowing trip to the ER in the middle of the night. (Ok. NOT harrowing, but eventful). Oh, and Kym is CLEAR OF CANCER! All her tests came back and she is a clean, clear, cancer-free slate. We could not be happier! There’s so much to be grateful for!

Rocky the Podcat
Rocky the Podcat hasn’t left Kris’ side since she got home from the hospital. She loves her hooman. Kris swears this is true.

And then there’s the discussion about our total obsession with bullet journaling (aka, bujo) and exactly how it is NOT just for women. In fact, it was started by a guy named Ryder Carroll, who explains it all in this video. So, if you need a little organization, focus, tracking, spaces for ideas, doodles, lists, or anything else you can think of to keep your life running a little more smoothly – and have it all in one place – we highly recommend trying this personalized planner system that you can keep as simple or as embellished as you want!

Kym's Bullet Journal
Here’s Kym’s bullet journal week at a glance done in a very creative, yummy way!

Kris' Bullet Journal
A really washed out Habit Tracker for Kris to track how many days in the month of November she cusses out people in traff**k. Considering today is the 13th, we’re thinking Kris has a lot to think about. Just sit there and think about what you’ve done Kris.
