Have we landed on a nickname? MAYBE. Also Daniel's doodling leads to a conversation about his alter ego and his secret work life which leads back to nicknames. Ray Oldhafer calls us during the show and we answer on air and I still feel unsettled but I'm not sure why. Plus a story about a chicken nugget and a round of Just Me Or Everyone and more.

Rachael O'Brien, Renee Colvert and Tony Thaxton join Daniel and me to discuss how we each responded to the pair of earthquakes over July 4 weekend. Did you know Daniel took a class in college about earthquakes? He did and despite my wanting to roll my eyes at Johnny Earthquakes, he has pretty good info to share. We also discuss reality shows, the way The Hills: New Beginnings is scrambling my brain even though I love it, Rachael's experience at Jax and Britney's Kentucky wedding, how "real" the shows really are, pancake bread, Just Me Or Everyone, gal chat and so much more.

Well it finally happened. I used a fancy 50-cent word and then was asked the definition and CAME UP SHORT. Damn you, liberal arts education. We discuss whether we still retain what we learned in college, my crappy mood, a joke that I hilariously bungle, the ongoing nickname search,
Lance Armstrong and what a dick he is, dead bodies, outrage, detention centers and so much more. We also do a round of Just Me Or Everyone.
