Wala sa mood si Denise for Christmas. Celine pretends she has her shit together and is super insistent that Denise try to "calendar" things. Stories about bad ham, "litse plan", and accidental meat. Also, Star Wars. (No spoilers.)
Celine has questions about the US of A. Denise has (some) answers. We cover it all: Sapatos sa kama, vomiting sa basurahan, racism, mispronounced names, tumbleweed, and answering "Where are you from?"
Parks and Recreation, "Where are you from?" van scene from Episode 2 Season 2, "The Stakeout" (screenshots here)
(See also: "What kind of Asian are you?")
Celine's problem: teenage boys invading her home to steal rambutan. The solution? A trap Denise calls "absolutely crazy". Denise's problem: PMS cravings. They argue about the barter value of chocolate and sanitary napkins in a post-apocalyptic world. And crying. So much hormonal crying.
Para sa mga hindi makapaghintay, may bonus episode! We'll be uploading bonus mini-episodes (5 to 10 mins long) whenever our time and hosting account quota allows for it.
Recorded in September. Celine does a post-mortem on her birthday -- may giant cake! Also, Denise discovers why, after decades of denial, nagpapakatotoo ang nanay nila about her age.
On friendship. What happens when all your friends are going abroad? What happens when *you* go abroad and leave your friends behind? Sepanx mode na ito. Celine almost cries. Denise brings up the awkwardness of having privileged friends. Also: High school is a subplot.
Celine reductively misquotes something misattributted to John Steinbeck ("Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires." - John Steinbeck) : https://www.reddit.com/comments/g877k/
Kapag silent ka ba sa isang issue, does it mean you're part of the problem? We go waaaay over our heads as Denise overcomplicates the process of constructing a Facebook post commemorating her 10-year anniversary in the US.
