Show Notes Transcript

Welcome back to our silly podcast. Today we're playing Pokemon Sword and Little Nightmares. Hang out with us while we talk about our TikTok induced crisis, pandemic struggles, and our differences when it comes to candy flavors. 

Karly:  
[music] Hey there, welcome to our podcast where we try to figure out life together one video game at a time. I'm Karly. 

Sam:  
And I'm Sam. Grab a snack, grab your controller, and let's hang out and play.[music fades out]

Karly:  
Hello, friend. Hi. We're back. Take two because I already messed up our first take. Cool. 

Sam:  
Cool. It'd be like that sometimes, you know, like, can't be perfect every time.

Karly:  
It's true. We're all just doing our best in 2021. 

Sam:  
Honestly, I wish I could have a redo on a lot of things to be honest, though.

Karly:
I mean, same big same. But hey, friend, congratulations. Our first episode is out.

Sam:  
Yes, it is. For those that are new to this. You can. I almost said watch but you cannot watch you can listen to our very first podcast episode. 

Karly:  
Yes, you can find it on hangoutandplaypod.com. Or we're already up on Spotify. 

Sam:  
Yeah, we are. 

Karly:  
Yeah, so weird. and exciting, though that like my weird voice is on Spotify.

Sam:  
It is out there in the open and I listened to it last night on Spotify.

Karly:  
I love that. It's probably our only listen, but I love that. It's there.

Sam:  
Yeah, I listened to it at like two o'clock in the morning.

Karly:  
I was telling Sam the other night like this is really dangerous for me because I'm the kind of person who, when I'm bored and lonely, I'll scroll through like my own Twitter or Instagram and be like, wow, I'm so funny. So now I can just like listen to myself. Yeah,  not good. But anyway, what are we playing today? What are you playing?

Sam:  
Um, I am playing Pokemon sword. I have been talking about getting it. 

Karly:  
Ahh you committed.

Sam:  
I did. I've been talking about getting it for like weeks. And I finally Yeah, finally was like heck it I'm buying it here we are.

Karly:  
I love that. First thoughts. First impressions. are you liking it? 

Sam:  
Oh, yeah, it's super cute. Um, it's, I mean, I know that every Pokemon game is different. And it is it's very different to the one I just finished which was let's go Pikachu.

Karly:  
How's it different?

Sam:  
Um, the graphics. It's more this one actually kind of reminds me a little bit of like legend of zelda kind of style. 

Karly:  
Ooooo 

Sam:  
Yeah, the way that 

Karly:  
I love the way breath a breath of the wild looks. 

Sam:  
Yeah, that's that's what this one looks like to me.

Karly:  
Nice.

Sam:  
I'm just about to fight someone. In a Pokemon battle, not like in real life. I just felt like I needed to clarify that.

Karly:  
I mean, I'm glad. I mean, I would support you either way. But you know. Well, I'm glad you're liking it. What uh, what Pokemon did you start out with? Do you just start with Pikachu or

Sam:  
No there so, because I'm in a different region, I'm actually - there's different Pokemon that I've never even seen before. So you do start with like, you can choose one of three. And the way they go about it obviously is through a story of how you pick but always the options are grass, fire or electric or water and so I actually picked the water Pokemon for this game. I don't know its actual name, but I nicknamed him sushi. 

Karly:  
I love that. That's really cute. 

Sam:
And he just grew to level 10

Karly:
fun. 

Sam:  
Yeah. Oh my gosh, almost all my Pokemon just leveled up from this fight. So yeah, so anyway, that's that's what I'm playing. Um, I did look up garden paws because I was going to buy that. But apparently it doesn't fit with my Mac version that I have. I have to dive deeper into that but so that was the 

Karly:  
What a disappointment

Sam:  
I know. So in the meantime, I have I have this Pokemon game so that's what I've been playing. What are you playing? 

Karly:  
Today I am going to be playing little nightmares. And I haven't started yet because I'm scared. 

Sam:  
Well, no time like the present.

Karly:  
Yeah. Little nightmares is such a wonderful game though. I've had my eye on it for a very long time. And then I committed eventually because it was on sale on Steam. And I have a gift card for my birthday. And it's just so strange, but it's basically like a puzzle platformer. And you're this little child in like a yellow raincoat looking thing. And you basically walk through the levels, like you're playing through their nightmares. And it's just, it's not super scary. Like, if you're not into like horror games, you can still play this, I think. Because like, there are jumpscares, but I don't ever feel like they're too bad. Yeah, you kind of know they're coming. It's just very creepy and unsettling. There's this one monster, I guess you could call it with like, this guy was super long arms. And like

Sam:  
Slender Man. 

Karly:  
Sorta, except he has like really short legs, like, his body is just like not the right proportions. And like, that sounds silly. But looking at it, it's so creepy. And there's this one area where he chases you down a hallway. 

Sam:  
No. 

Karly:  
And then you get like cornered in like this like elevator. And you have to hide in this box. And it's just really creepy. And the way the game works is like, if you are off by a half a second. It's like Game Over, you have to start over. So it gets really frustrating really quick, but I like puzzle games, so I really enjoy it.

Sam:  
Yeah. That sounds aggressive.

Karly:  
Yeah. I mean, it's not that bad. Like, it's I don't think it's a super long game either. I just, I play it for like three hours a day. And then I drop it for a few weeks because anxiety. 

Sam:  
Yeah, that's fair. 

Karly:  
But it's really good. And there's a sequel out now too. So I really want to finish this one so I can get the second.

Sam:  
Yeah, I saw that yesterday when I was looking at games to buy on the switch that I saw. The second one was out.

Karly:  
Yeah, and I've heard really good things about it, too. I see a lot of people playing it on tik tok. 

Sam:  
I love that. I just caught a Pokemon to me that looks like an acorn.

Karly:  
Oh my god. I love that.

Sam:  
He's called a seadot. I don't know.

Karly:  
That's really cute name too. So because I am playing little nightmares, though. I had a fun question for you 

Sam:  
Okay

Karly:  
that I've been thinking about. So I have really weird dreams sometimes. So I wanted to know, what is the weirdest and or most unsettling nightmare from childhood that has stayed with you?

Sam:  
Um, so, um, I used to lay in bed when I was little, um, actually, let me back up. Let me back up. My mom loved Oprah loves Oprah used to watch the Oprah show all the time. And I will never forget,

Karly:  
As moms do.

Sam:  
Right? Such a mom thing. Classic mom. Um, so I remember one episode, she was watching when I was home from school and it was about this. This family had a family reunion at a park like a public park. And their daughter went into the to use the bathroom and she never came out. She was murdered in a public bathroom. And so for a very, very long time, I could not use a public bathroom without my mom coming with me. Like, I'm talking about like, well until like double digit age, I would just so terrified.

Karly:  
okay. 

Sam:  
But, but along with that, I have a really strong nightmare that I'm going to get kidnapped. And when I was little, I used to just lay in bed and think about different ways that kidnappers could get into my room. And then how I would try and escape from them. And like, this is like, I'm talking like I was seven or eight. So like, I would lay there in bed thinking, okay, well, if a murderer or kidnapper tried to kidnap me, I would just tell him that I needed to use the bathroom. And then when they would let me to go to the bathroom. I would just run.

Karly:  
They'd just be like, yeah, sure kid,

Sam:  
Right. And then instead of going to the bathroom, I would run straight into my parents room. Because like my parents were at the end of this really long hallway and I would just run there and tell them like that was like my little kid brain being like, yeah, like that's why 

Karly:  
There's something really endearing about the fact that you're just gonna be like, excuse me, sir. I just have to go to the bathroom. They'd be like, Yeah, sure. 

Sam:  
Right, right. 

Karly:  
That's really cute.

Sam:  
So anyway, that is, that is kind of a nightmare that I just that sticks out to me the most.

Karly:  
Yeah.

Sam:  
Yeah, that's I don't remember any like dream nightmares. I mean, I know I had them. I have them all the time. But yeah.

yeah. What about you?

Karly:  
So. Okay, mine is really weird. 

Sam:  
I'm ready.

Karly:  
I, I don't know, like what, like brought this on I don't know did I watch like a movie or something. And it's like imagery just stuck with me. But I was probably seven or eight. And I had this really strange dream where I like I wasn't from what I remember like in the dream it was like I was watching a movie. But it was like in like an abandoned like parking garage sort of thing. And there was this scary like witch woman and she had made like a circle. And like, there was like, I don't know, like rocks and like strange things like forming his circle, and there's a fire in the middle. And then they brought my mom in. And this witch sacrificed my mother over the fire. 

Sam:  
Oh my gosh. 

Karly:  
And like, that sounds very bad. It wasn't like graphic or anything. I just remember like, I knew they were gonna sacrifice her. They were gonna do something with the fire. And I remember I woke up and I like just like called for my mom and made her come in my room. I was like, Okay, I just dreamt they like sacrifice you. And she was like, Okay, well go to sleep. And I was like, but okay. I don't know why I dreamt that. I don't know, who hurt poor, innocent Karly as a child to make her dream about her mother being sacrificed by a witch. But it has stuck with me my entire life. Which is, you know, kind of impressive, because I typically don't remember my dreams very much. 

Sam:  
Brains are weird. 

Karly:  
They really are. They really are.

Sam:  
Brains are weird. Dreams are weird.

Karly:  
Yeah, for sure.

Sam:  
That's a good question. I like that question.

Karly:  
Thanks. Just, you know, one of the things that's been flying around in my, my brain while I try to hype myself up to play the scary game. 

Sam:  
That's, that's fair. How on brand.

Karly:  
I know. The level that I'm in right now. You're sort of like walking through this, a restaurant I guess for lack of a better word. And they're these dudes there. And if you get too close to them, they grab you and eat you 

Sam:  
No. 

Karly:  
Yeah, and I'm not very great at puzzles I've learned. I have no idea how to get through this level. But I guess we'll do it somehow.

Sam:  
I just found a Pokemon that looks like a Corgi.

Karly:  
Ah, my dream.

Sam:  
I know. It's really cute. It's name, it's called a yamper.

Karly:  
Oh, a yamper. 

Sam:  
Yeah.

Karly:  
Wow. That's what you need after a week like the one we've had. Just a sweet little yamper. Hasn't been a good week.

Sam:  
You can say that again. 

Karly:  
Honestly. I have felt sick. Like, a whole week. And

Sam:  
Ugh I'm so sorry. 

Karly:  
It's all right. Like, I'm not like actually sick. I just, you know that thing that goes around on Twitter a lot of times it's like, all hot girls have stomach issues. 

Sam:  
Yeah. 

Karly:  
That's me. except minus the hot.

Sam:  
Shut up.

Karly:  
I have the tummy troubles. 

Sam:  
I'll fight you.

Karly:  
Okay.

Sam:  
By age 30 you should have at least one of the following tummy issues, crippling anxiety, a mountain of debt.

Karly:  
Yep. Wow. Too real. Too real.

Sam:  
I want this Corgi.

Karly:  
Yes, I want you to get this Corgi. I want it for you so bad. I want to see this Corgi. I'm a little sad that I can't see him.

Sam:  
I can show you him. My Pokemon is paralyzed though.

Karly:  
Oh my god. It's so cute. Everybody stop what you're doing and Google the yamper from Pokemon.

Sam:  
Yes, it's cute. You will not be disappointed.

Karly:  
Honestly. 

Sam:  
Actually, maybe you might be I don't know. I don't know your life. But

Karly:  
So I saw that you have started to post on TikTok now.

Sam:  
Yes, yes, I am. Because I feel like sometimes I have funny thoughts that I think other people should hear.

Karly:  
I think you're funny all the time. 

Sam:  
Well, thank you. 

Karly:  
Yeah. 

Sam:  
Yeah, yesterday. So I go for those that don't know, I go to therapy every week. I have a lot of anxiety that I've been working through. And so I was actually talking to my therapist about how, when people say something, to me whether it's negative, or positive, they mean it, because they wouldn't have said it if they didn't mean it. Like, why would they go out of their way and say something. And I'll use the example that I that I gave to her. So if I swipe with a person, and swipe right on a dating app, and we match, and they messaged me first and say, Hey, I really think you're beautiful. My brain says oh well he, they must really mean that, because they wouldn't have said it. They didn't mean it. Like, why would they go out of their way and say that if they didn't mean it? And my therapist looks at me and goes, Well, what makes what they mean true? 

Karly:  
This is gonna give me a crisis. 

Sam:  
Oh, it has given me a crisis. And she sent it to me yesterday, I literally looked at her. And I was like, What? What? Look, I understand the question, but what? And I literally mean

Karly:  
 I mean it is a good point.

Sam:  
It's a very good point. But it literally like threw my entire world off. Like off its axis. I was like what? I said, I don't know, Rebecca, you're asking really good questions. I don't have the answer for you. And then, because that messed me up, I had to ruin someone else's day. So I call one of my best friends from home, Lily. She was like, I have two minutes. I said, two minutes is all I need to mess you up for today. And so 

Karly:  
Poor Lily. Lily is so sweet. Lily does not deserve this.

Sam:  
I know. So I told her and she's like, I have a client I have to go, bye and then she messaged me later like I'm still stressed about this. And I was like, You're welcome.

Karly:  
Yeah, it's wild. Because I think even when I'm like, on like, a good mental health day, rare as they are, I feel like I still, it would just take like one thing for, like somebody say to me, and that would just like destroy me. 

Sam:  
Yeah. 

Karly:  
And like when I'm feeling really good about myself, I do tend to use like things nice things people have said about me to like, make me feel good. 

Sam:  
Yeah. 

Karly:  
Instead of like, I believe this about me. No, somebody else has to tell it to me. 

Sam:  
Yeah. 

Karly:  
Wow. therapy. 

Sam:  
Therapy man. 

Karly:  
Who knew? I'm glad that you go to therapy, so that you can just like pass on the lessons that you get, since I can't go to therapy? 

Sam:  
Yeah. It's funny. 

Karly:  
Thanks for sharing the wisdom.

Sam:  
You're welcome. It's funny, because sometimes, like, I'm always happy I'm going to therapy. But like, some days like, I'll wake up and like, I don't want to go to therapy. And like, I don't... and by go, I mean like log into my computer. I'm just like, I don't, this is an hour of my life. Like I just like, don't want to do it. And then I'm always so happy that I went and like, I love my therapist, and she's lovely. And I'm such a huge advocate for therapy for I think therapy needs to be more affordable. I think it really

Karly:  
Yeah, that's why I don't go.

Sam:  
Yeah. And I think I think it really sucks because I think anyone can benefit from therapy. even if you're thinking like, you know, even if you don't struggle with anxiety, or depression or anything, I think sometimes it's just nice to talk to someone with 

Karly:  
Yeah, 

Sam:  
Third party perspective. I just like yeah, I just wish it was more affordable for people.

Karly:  
Yeah, I don't go to therapy because for anybody who doesn't know I'm disabled, so I get SSI and Medicaid. And with SSI and Medicaid, there are all these weird rules and restrictions. And so, my form of Medicaid, there are also different forms of Medicaid, at least there are in Florida, it's different state to state, but the plan that I have, will cover like one place nearby. They cover like other places, but like the only one that's like near us is like strictly telephone. Like even pre pandemic times. You can only do it over the phone. And like, in my head, I like wrestle with it all the time. Like well, it's better than nothing. But then the other part of me is like, but talking on the phone?

Sam:  
Yeah.

Karly:  
Is like the one thing you hate the most in this world. 

Sam:  
Mm hmm. 

Karly:  
Like, I wish I could do it like over like Skype or FaceTime or something, you know where I can like see the other person because then I'm fine but like talking on the phone. Just is not good with me. I'm not good at it. And I, I guess I could probably, eventually maybe get over it. But I just know, like, for a long time, I don't even think it would like benefit me because I would be so stressed out. 

Sam:  
Yeah. 

Karly:  
That like, I don't think I could like get what you're supposed to get from therapy like, I don't think I could like open up or relax enough to really have like an honest conversation. 

Sam:  
Yeah.

Karly:  
It also stresses me out because like, I live with my mom and my brother. Our walls are pretty thin. 

Sam:  
Right. 

Karly:  
So like, that's a little bit of a bummer. But I did see, a few years ago, somebody online was talking about therapy, and like advocating for people to do it. And they were like, nobody thinks it's weird to, like, go for like a checkup and like, make sure like, physically you're healthy. And like to manage your health, to exercise and do all that stuff. So therapy is really just doing that. But like, for your brain for your mental health. And so it shouldn't be looked at as like, you only go when you're in crisis, 

Sam:  
Right. Yeah. 

Karly:  
It should be a thing that you go to, like, just manage it to make sure you don't get to crisis. 

Sam:  
Yes, absolutely. 

Karly:  
If you do you know how to come back from it, etc, etc. So,

Sam:  
yes, because I started therapy when I was in crisis. Three years ago.

Karly:  
Yeah, I mean, if you're in crisis, definitely do it. But I don't the world kind of looks at it is like it's it's only for people who are like, on the edge, I guess.

Sam:  
Right. When it's not, like, that's not the only time it's beneficial.

Karly:  
But I I like that you're posting that stuff on TikTok. And the funny thing is, it would probably show up on my for you page even if we weren't friends. Cuz like my TikTok now is like mental health TikTok 

Sam:  
Love that. 

Karly:  
It's ADHD all the time. Which I am, I'm like, 90% sure. I'm undiagnosed.

Sam:  
Yeah, we were talking about that last night with our friend group that TikTok made us all think that we have ADHD that we might be undiagnosed with some with some things.

Karly:  
Yeah. I really, truly believe it. But um, speaking of TikTok, I, I've been sitting on this little nugget. 

Sam:  
Okay. 

Karly:  
So okay, first, it's a two parter. Number one, what is your love language? 

Sam:  
I mean, speaking to me, holding the door open for me. Swiping right on me.

Karly:  
No no no, specifically like, like quality time, words of affirmation, acts of service, gift giving. 

Sam:  
Oh, that I enjoy? What I give out like? What it was like my love language that I speak or that I receive?

Karly:  
That you want to receive like 

Sam:  
Okay, affirmation. 100%

Karly:  
Words of affirmation. Okay. There was a TikTok going around they're ike whatever your love language is as an adult is what you didn't get enough of as growing up. 

Sam:  
Yeah.

Karly:  
Yeah. 

Sam:  
That's true.

Karly:  
Yeah, mines quality time. I was the loneliest child. Yeah. It really sent me through it when I saw that TikTok.

Sam:  
Yeah, that's rea.

Karly:  
Just something to think about.

Sam:  
Thank you for that.

Karly:  
You're welcome. I was thinking about how because like, I don't know, I was kind of when I like learned about like, love languages, or whatever. I always instantly was like, yeah, quality time. Like, I just love to spend time with people that I love. Like, that's like, the best thing you can do for me. It's just like, give me like your undivided attention. 

Sam:  
Yeah.

Karly:  
Love it. And then when I saw that tiktok, just like was like watching a movie in my head of like, in elementary school, when all of my friends said they didn't want to be my friend anymore. And me sitting inside during recess by myself, or like, going to a new school in middle school and having no friends, going to high school and having no friends. I was like, oh, damn, I really did spend a lot of time alone, didn't I? Wow, thank you for yet another crisis tiktok.

Sam:  
It's like any time you're welcome.

Karly:  
Right? Like, you'll just be like, trying to like scroll through looking at cute dogs. And then all of a sudden, tictok just like throws your trauma in your face and shames you. The other TikTok that really messed me up. Since we're going there. 

Sam:  
Yeah. 

Karly:  
It was like kids today, look at the 90s how we in the 90s looked at the 60s.

Sam:  
No, 

Karly:  
I hate it. 

Sam:  
No, I really hate that a lot.

Karly:  
And I was like, well, not really but then it's like, no, it's 30 years. It's a 30 year difference. *gags*

Sam:  
oh God.

Karly:  
I hate it so much.

Sam:  
I hate that a lot.

Karly:  
I turn. I turn 30 next year. 

Sam:  
Mm hmm. 

Karly:  
I hate that. 

Sam:  
Yep. Just you out there.

Karly:  
At least you have a few years left.

Sam:  
I mean, I have two years left.

Karly:  
It's more than me, man. Oh, man. I hope I don't turn 30 in quarantine. 

Sam:  
Oh, you won't.

Karly:  
Oh, I don't know.

Sam:  
I don't think so. I can't think that far to be honest. I can't.

Karly:  
Yeah. Yeah. I just, this whole week has been like a struggle for me, because I've been trying to get my vaccine. 

Sam:  
Yes. 

Karly:  
In Florida, they have just recently opened it up for people with like high risk conditions. Which it's infuriating to me anyway, that like, it took them this long to open up to us. But yeah, so I researched like, how do you do this? Like, what do I need to do? And there's like this new form they like just released that basically just has like your doctor sign off or like your basic info and that they think you are highly vulnerable to COVID and you need this vaccine. Okay, well, we call try to get appointment, me and my brother. They won't see us for a month. Which like, I knew this would happen. I can never get a doctor's appointment in like a timely manner. Ever. It's always like, a one to three month wait. So then I was like, alright, can I just see a different doctor? I messaged adventhealth, I got their little app talking to a care agent, whatever. And they were like, no, sorry, only your doctor who has access to your records can sign that form. And I was like, well, what if I get them to send you my records? Like if I can get my records that say yes, I have Muscular Dystrophy? Can you then just verify that and then sign my form for me? No, sorry, they won't do that. And I was like, okay, and they were like, you should just send your form, like email the COVID vaccine form to your doctor, they can sign it and email it back. And I'm like, yeah, we asked, they won't do it. They said they will only sign it if we have an appointment because they want to be able to bill. 

Sam:  
Yeah. 

Karly:  
So then I was like, okay, am I really going to be turned away from this vaccine? I'm visibly disabled, like you can I'm in a wheelchair, a power wheelchair like you can. You can see I'm not faking this, which not that I'm saying anybody should be called out for faking because some disabilities are invisible. That's not what I'm saying at all. I'm just saying. It's easy to verify that I am disabled. 

Sam:  
Right. 

Karly:  
And they were like, well, adventhealth probably wouldn't turn you away. But we don't know anything about like your county, like we just don't know. 

Sam:  
Right.

Karly:  
Which probably means yes, they would probably turn me away.

Sam:  
Yeah, every. It's just crazy. I just like don't understand. 

Karly:  
No me, either. But yeah, that, uh, that's been my struggle for the week. It's sort of like, occupied most of my brain like, I'm just so mad about it.

Sam:  
I mean, that's fair. That is totally fair. I just talked to my parents, and my mom is getting her second vaccination soon, and my dad is getting his first vaccination soon because they're both 65. So

Karly:  
That's good. I'm glad they got it. 

Sam:  
Yeah. 

Karly:  
Because they actually had COVID I'm glad that they are okay. And like recovered.

Sam:  
Yes. Except they still can't taste or smell anything.

Karly:  
Wait, really?

Sam:  
Really. My mom can taste hot sauce. And that's it. I think she said, 

Karly:  
Oh, that's such a bummer. 

Sam:  
Yeah.

Karly:  
Yeah. When I first heard about that, I thought, Oh, if I lost the ability to taste. I wonder if that was like become like my superpower. Because I don't like to eat really? 

Sam:  
Yeah. 

Karly:  
Which I know everybody thinks is weird, but I just don't love to eat. But then I realized oh, so you'd have no taste only texture. 

Right.

And that just made me want to die. Like I never thought about it like that. I don't I don't know how I would eat if all I had was just the texture. 

Sam:  
Same. 

Karly:  
I would just have to like turn everything into a smoothie and drink it. 

Sam:  
Yeah.

Karly:  
Let me just drink this cheeseburger. 

Sam:  
Ewww, I hate that.

Karly:  
When I was little we, we used to watch. What does that show called? The one that Lexi  really likes where they live in the house. Big Brother. We watched Big brother like the first season that it came out. And I'll never forget, one of the challenges they did was they were like, what's your favorite dinner? And so they would say, oh, spaghetti and meatballs and mashed potatoes and this wonderful dinner. And then they were like, great come out into the yard and you can have your favorite dinner. And they had to blend up their entire dinner. Like the entree all the sides and then drink it. 

Sam:  
No.

Karly:  
It traumatized me. Like, to the point where sometimes I'll be like eating dinner and I'll think about that. And like, physically feel sick. Just what it's like to be in my brain.

Sam:  
Well, yeah, I know. I I love to-  and see I'm the opposite. I love to eat. So I it just sounds like a nightmare to lose being able to taste and smell but yes, they both had it around Christmas time. Very thankful that all they really had was loss of taste and smell. 

Karly:  
Yeah 

Sam:  
They were tired a few days, but that was really it.

Karly:  
Yeah, that's good. So how's Pokemon What are you doing now? Did you catch the Corgi?

Sam:  
I did. 

Karly:  
Oh, blessed.

Sam:  
I'm about to rival my friend hop. I didn't name him that.

Karly:  
Friend hop?

Sam:  
Yeah, his name's hop.

Karly:  
Alright.

Sam:  
Yeah, I again, I didn't name him so.

Karly:  
Yeah, well, it's kind of cute though. I just picture like a penguin.

Sam:  
He's aight, like a hare

Karly:  
Like hopper.

Wowwee. Although listening to you play Pokemon like just makes me sad that I still don't have my switch because I really want to play.

Sam:  
You should play you should definitely get let's go Eevee or Pikachu

Karly:  
Instead of sword?

Sam:  
I think so. For your first one. Yeah. Yeah.

Karly:  
Why? What do you think is like the difference?

Sam:  
Um, it's a little bit more like user friendly. And as far as like, like catching and leveling up your Pokemon, because you just have to catch Pokemon. You don't have to fight them to level up your Pokemon. I don't know. I I think it's a real like it's cuter. Not this was not cute. And I am very in like in the beginning of it, but because it was like a remake of Pokemon Yellow and that's like one of the first ones. I think it would be good for you to start with that one because then I don't know. I don't. I don't really have a valid argument actually.

Karly:  
All right. I mean, you like what you like, that's fine. Yeah. I think you should try to play little nightmares.

Sam:  
Yeah, I want to is that one Mac playable? 

Karly:  
Um, I don't know. But it's on switch.

Sam:  
I know. That. I didn't know. But I was gonna see if I could play it on my Mac. I'll have to look after this. Maybe that's what I'll play next week.

Karly:  
Yeah, I don't know. I was worried because it has like these weird, and by weird, it just means I don't know what they mean tech requirements. And I never thought it was going to run on my computer. But it runs pretty good. Which was a nice surprise. I'm, if you were wondering, I'm still on the same area. I don't know how to get past it. 

Sam:  
Well.

Karly:  
So. Rip. I'm still so sad. You can't play garden paws because you can play online and I want us to be able to play garden paws together.

Sam:  
I think I can play it. I just have to like, do something because I think I have Catalina iOS software installed. So I honestly just need to dive more into it. I honestly like stopped reading. And that's it. Oh, I can't play it, heck it.

Karly:  
That's fair. Yeah, I I don't know enough about like, computers. I hate when like they say, oh, you need this kind of graphics card. But like, I don't, I don't know what any of these are like, I don't know how to tell what's better. What's newer. I wish that I understood them better. It's why I can't build my own PC. I tried watching a tutorial once. I got like 10 minutes in and was so overwhelmed. I need somebody to teach me. Teach me computers. I want to know.

Sam:  
Yeah, same that, I think, you know, I'm gonna pay for a little bit more to have a PC like already built cause. Just tell me what I need. Do it for me.

Karly:  
Yeah, that's fair. People get like snobby over it like, Oh, it's a prebuilt.

Sam:  
Yeah.

Karly:  
Like, not everybody wants to sit and build their own like, right.

Sam:  
I don't got time for that

Karly:  
I understand there are like pros of building it yourself and that's great if you want to do it more power to you but like, I just I don't see any shame and not wanting to do that 

Sam:  
Same 

Karly:  
Life is too short man if you want to do it, do it if you don't just buy it.

Sam:  
Right. Do what you want. Do what makes you happy. Honestly, we're in a we're in a parabola. 

Karly:  
We're in a Panini. 

Sam:  
We're in a panic at the disco. 

Karly:  
We're in a pandammit.

Sam:  
We're in a pepperoni.

Karly:  
Do you know what I still think about? Your mom's pepperoni rolls.

Sam:  
So good.

Karly:  
I've never had one. But you told me about them. Probably like eight years ago. I still think about it all the time. I need your 

Sam:  
mom, if you're listening. Can you make us one and send it? 

Karly:  
Honestly, 

Sam:  
Thanks. 

Karly:  
When your parents moved to Florida, man, like, I just need your mother's cooking. 

Sam:  
There it is. 

Karly:  
Wow.

Sam:  
Wow. Um, so I have a question. Yes, I've been asking people. And this is super random, literally no context. 

Karly:  
Okay. 

Sam:  
But if you could invent any flavor of jelly bean

Karly:  
oooh. 

Sam:  
What would you invent? And it doesn't have to be like one you think would taste good. Like, you could be like, I didn't invent salt water flavor or like sangria or like,

Karly:  
ohh.

Sam:  
Burnt marshmallow. I don't know that. Anything. It doesn't again, it doesn't give you something that you would want to eat. But what would you? What would you make? 

Karly:  
Oh, okay. All right. So. Oh, that's hard. Okay, well, I'm thinking about it. What is your answer?

Sam:  
Um, sangria has been my answer. 

Karly:  
Okay. 

Sam:  
Like sangria flavored.

Karly:  
I think this is kind of, I bet it would be disgusting. But like French fry. 

Sam:  
Okay, 

Karly:  
Like just salty potato. I think that 

Sam:  
I love that. 

Karly:  
Yeah, cuz I love a good salty potato. The other thing that came to my mind would be funnel cake. 

Sam:  
Oh, okay. 

Karly:  
But I don't know how that would work. Because you can't, how would you get the flavor of like the fried dough and the powdered sugar? Maybe maybe mine would be a two parter. You have to eat them both at the same time. You'd have the fried dough and then powdered sugar. Are you a big Jelly Bean fan? 

Sam:  
No.

Karly:  
All right.

Sam:  
I'm not. That's the crazy thing. This was one of my random late night thoughts that I had when I couldn't fall asleep at like three o'clock in the morning.

Karly:  
That's fair. It'd be like that sometimes.

Sam:  
Like just thinking about that. But no, I'm not a huge Jelly Bean person.

Karly:  
Okay. follow up question. If you can only eat one kind of jelly bean?

Sam:  
Oh, easy. The cherry one. 

Karly:  
Oh, no. 

Sam:  
Yes!

Karly:  
Friendship over.

Sam:  
Okay, bye. 

Karly:  
It's cinnamon. Cinnamon.

Ew, no! That's disgusting.

They taste like big red gum.

Sam:  
Yeah. Disgusting. I said what I said

Karly:  
I love the cinnamon ones. I could eat a whole jar of just cinnamon jelly beans. Those are my favorite. I like root in the

Sam:  
I literally just shook. I literally got chills. That's... okay. 

Karly:  
They're so good. 

Sam:  
I never knew that about you. But that's interesting. 

Karly:  
They're so good. You didn't like big red gum as a kid?

Sam:  
No.

Karly:  
What were you like juicy fruit?

Sam:  
Yes.

Karly:  
All right. Loser.

Sam:  
Yes, I was. 

Karly:  
I like to see fruit too. Was your mom really weird about gum?

Sam:  
No, not really.

Karly:  
You didn't get 

Sam:  
Not from what I can remember. 

Karly:  
You didn't get nagged about eating the sugary gum?

Sam:  
Not when I was little no, because honestly, I wasn't allowed to have anything else. Like. And that sounds like really sad. But I mean, like, like a lot of sugary things. Like I only had sodas, like if I was at a birthday party. So it was always like a special occasion where we'd have like, candy like Halloween and stuff like that. So like, I feel like gum was one of those things that like 

Karly:  
She was lenient about. 

Sam:  
Yeah, yeah.

Karly:  
Yeah. See from what I can remember, I didn't eat a ton of junk. So I don't know like Why? My mom wasn't whinging about. But she was like she was like not say you can't have this but she would be He's like really passive aggressive and trying to make you feel bad about it. Like, you can have this but it's terrible for your teeth. 

Sam:
Oh yeah mine did that too.

Karly:
There is so much sugar in this. Wouldn't you like sugar free gums? No. They taste like crap. I want the juicy fruit or what was the there was like one of those gums that like the packet was like bright colors like all swirled. 


Sam:  
Yes, it 

Karly:  
What was it 

Sam:  
Hold on. I was gonna I was gonna look this up while you were talking because I don't know how to look it up but it came in a can like a canister right? Like the 

Karly:  
There was those the ones that you could like pull out and was like fruit by the foot. But that's not the one I'm thinking of. Intermission while we google gums from the 90s

Sam:  
gum from 90s. I'm literally gonna look that up gum from the 90s Oh, it was Fruit Stripe?

Karly:  
Yes. 

Sam:  
Right. 

Karly:  
Yeah. 

Sam:  
Yeah. 

Karly:  
And I didn't even like that because it was fruity. But I always wanted it just because of the like the packaging. 

Sam:  
Yeah, 

Karly:  
It just looked so fun.

Sam:  
Agreed. 

Karly:  
Is the one you're thinking of bubble yum? Or wubba bubba. Wubba bubba was the one that was like, in like a pink circle.

Sam:  
Yes. No, not that one. I was thinking of it's ouch bubblegum fruit flavor band aid. Like it comes in like a canister thing.

Karly:  
Oh, I don't think I don't even remember that. 

Sam:  
Yeah, 

Karly:  
Wow. I miss the 90s.

Sam:  
I was gonna say same. But then I was like, I mean, I missed the 90s, too. But I can I can hear our friend Lexi bursting through and being like you were only what what an infant in the 90s?

Karly:  
Whatever the 90s were like, I remember the 90s. Cause I was born in 92. So 97, I have memories from like, 97 98. 

Sam:  
Yeah, I mean, I have memories of like the late 90s. Because at that point, I was four or five, six.

Karly:  
Yeah. Like we just we saw a different side of the 90s. Lexi was already like almost an adult. 

Sam:  
She basically was an adult

Karly:  
Right. 

Sam:  
What was she in college? 

Karly:  
Right? Hey, never forget that one time we found out that Lexi watch Blue's Clues while in college. 

Sam:  
Yeah. 

Karly:  
So whatever. I don't want to hear about it. We got to see like 90s from like an actual child perspective. But now like you think about again, is that TikTok about how kids today think of the 90s like we thought of the 60s. Here we are 

Sam:  
No. 

Karly:  
Two oldies just thinking about how, you know the good old days. Man, I mostly just missed the 90s because I can now remember what it was like to have no responsibility. And I want to go back. 

Sam:  
Yeah.

Karly:  
I want to go back 

Sam:  
Dude.

Karly:  
On that note. So how we have rambled about nothing for 45 minutes, and I had a great time. 

Sam:  
Same. This is what we do all the time. 

Karly:  
Yeah. Honestly. If anybody would like one final update, I did not beat the level I'm on. 

Sam:  
Well, maybe next time.

Karly:  
Maybe next time. What are you going to play next time? Do you think you're going to keep with Pokemon or try something new?

Sam:  
Either Pokemon or maybe little nightmares if I have it on my computer 

Karly:  
Fun, fun. Awesome. I have no idea where I'm going to be at mentally. Maybe I will try to play with little nightmares with you. But I'm not gonna lie by next week, I might have rage quit this game again. So I guess we'll find out.

Sam:  
Yeah, there we I guess we will.
