Episode 277 – Pre-Thanksgiving, Cori Large


It’s the day before Thanskgiving here in the US and all through the house, not much is going on. So we have a brief talk about what we sort-of-got done this week, before catching up with returning guest Cori Large.

Update: Added three links to additional disaster prep resources. Thanks to @unpritty@fandom.ink for the help!

    CORI IS BACCCCCCCKKKKKK! Yes! This was a delightful interview to listen to while sipping a hot cup of tea on a rainy night in New Jersey.

    Cori if you see this, I’m totally not stalking you. I just have been spelling your name wrong on the internets, and that’s why I couldn’t find your socials. Thankful for the links in the description.

    RE: Hurricane season. I remember my best friend Liza over in Davie (and I lived in Hollywood, FL–I still remember how to get to her house, even though it’s been a good 10 years since I’ve done it) had a huge house with pool, several bathrooms, a fireplace, a grill, and a massive amount of space. Hurricane days were spent at her house, with copious amounts of whatever liquor we could get our hands on, and a giant cookout to eat all the crap in the fridge before the power [inevitably] went out. If it was Cat 2 or lower, we’d all be stoked as hell, because the cleanup of the melaleuca trees that would fall over was minimal compared to an actual storm, where you’d get flooding and all that other crap. But usually on the night of said hurricane coming through, it was basically let’s hang out, and talk and junk, because the power’s out, and nobody wants to listen to the radio. The next morning, it was all hands on deck to do whatever it is that each of us is good for. I wasn’t going to be wielding a chainsaw to cut back the fallen trees, so I’d man the cook stove (they were enthusiastic campers, so they had butane stoves, as well as the grill outside), and cook up whatever I could get my hands on. And then we’d sit around and eat, while lunch was grilling away. Good times.

    RE: Getting rid of books from circulation. I’m of the strong opinion that if a book isn’t serving its purpose (reference, entertainment, etc), it needs to get pulled. Nobody needs to have Excel 2000 for Dummies. And although the advice in there is hilarious, Everything You Wanted to Know About Sex (But Were Afraid to Ask) is really not necessary to have on the shelves. There are more current and better resources out there that are still relevant.
