Welcome to Fabulous Factory. I'm your host, Bareness Bree. Welcome to Fabulous Factory, where it's always our goal to emerge fabulously in spite of any fuck ary Hello and thank you for turning in Let's Dive in today's topic. Today's topic is Sola Preneurs Fuck ary with today's guests. Miss Adrian McClanahan, owner and Mama preneurs of Sheikh diva geek dot com and 1/2 of the driving force behind Santa cause D. M v. Welcome, Adrian. Hi. Thank you for having me. So let's first talk about the amazing work that you and your husband Moe, have been doing for Santa cause D M v. He is definitely the pilot. I'm just the co pilot like he started before I even met him. So this is year seven seven. So previous six years altogether, we've raised $100,000. So this year the goal was to 200,000 silver pushin where it 10,000 almost 10,005 right now. So we got two months left and we actually you're planning an event for December like a let Carver vote style. Like Big Game might think something different to get people engaged, but not We don't want to beat you over the head with the calls. First, I want you to come out, have fun, be involved, and again, people tend to give when they feel like they're getting something out of it. Like people like you can't do it that way. It's like sometimes you have to Some people feel like they got to get something out of it instead of just giving pills like, let's make an event. Let's make it fun. Okay, So what are the details for your event And you have a date? So far, it is December 13th from 7 to 10 at Pitch Tavern because they were also enough to host us. So we're really excited. Okay, so you know, the adults come out is not a game, Mac Dickie's not again, like, you know, baby. Okay. Okay. If it is for the kids, but not for the key. All right, OK, so I can drink. Yes. Excellent. Excellent. Perfect. So you're gonna do black cart revolt? Yeah, I think that's easy. Like you made the team to make you a couple of rounds. I hadn't. That's the part. I'm trying to work out the logistics like we're going to a couple rounds, different people who drown in spades. You know, space gets a little ugly. Little Harry. I don't want to do Spain's anything. There's alcohol and you know you like, you know, people get stabbed playing spades, and I just you know, I don't wantto don't put that on us. Okay, Fair enough. Fair enough. Well, um, can you give the hashtag or the cash app where we could make a donation? So today's Friday people have gotten paid, so you know, you have followed a hash tag. Hashtag Santa Cole is that there's no l. I know it's almost close to Christmas. There's no L d. No second yells over here. So Santa, cause follow me on instagram Facebook, Twitter and the link is in my bio as well as my husband's bio. And then you can also go to Santa Claus, d m v dot org's to donate and then the cash out because, you know, sometimes that's quicker is less thought. It's Santa calls, but there is no extra s the dollar sign in cash up is the essence Santa calls people like. Is that a type of like? No, it just seemed over kills eight. So it is. You can find us everywhere by the exact same name all of the time. Perfect. Um, and all of that information we put on the website also. Perfect. So now my next thing for you, as you are all over the city, moving and shaking, getting us tech savvy with our business development. Congratulations on your last class. Helping women to say their website. That was my very 1st 1 So I was the whole bowl winners. I'm not an event planner, per se. So that part was a lot for me, but I was happy to be able to part with campsites on because the space is beautiful in its small, it doesn't feel like a co working space. Okay, so it was like open people felt like a discussion more than a workshop. Except I was sitting in front of a bunch of people, so I don't care where I'm at. I'm nervous. I don't care what I'm talking about. Still nervous center sto. Understood. But you did a good job. You offer Cook Awesome work. Um, full disclosure. Miss Adrian helped me give me, like a website review a few years ago for one of my first regular website. And you know that website almost in the process of being scrapped, we've upgraded, We've changed some things and you know, she's an excellent resource and old we are evolving like pokey balls. So excited. And I'm really grateful that just for your you know, your love of the kids right now you're doing a lot of steam Workshop with the baby's getting our baby's ready because again, we all know there is a glaring diversity problem in tech. I don't want that to continue to be a thing I was like So I feel like if we plant the seeds early enough like you don't have to be a Siskel engineer, you may not. You may like weapons. Our you may want to get into programming or coating like I t is big. So you tell your family Hamit at sea they literally will ask you everything Computer. Hey, can you look up this serial system? No, no, no, that's not I don't I don't do they There's different areas for kids to get into so that if we start them now because I didn't even know this was an option when I got out. I don't know what I wanted to when I graduated. Like they ask you what? Do you wanna be out? No, I didn't know. I went to general studies for you, and I was like, I fell into the details. But I'm good at this. Teacher was like, Ellen. It was easy. So it came naturally to me. So I was like, I want kids to know there's things outside of not knocking the firefighters, the police always none of that, like, That's great, if that's what you wanted. Teachers. Those are unsung heroes right there. But this is it. It's an option I was like, So if we plant the seeds early, they could be It could be the next Mark Zuckerberg minus you know, those tendencies out there ready to build the next great thing. So I was like, just touch on it and see where they go with it. Now you can find out more about her tech program for the Children through PG County, Rex and Parks. And I'm gonna update almost I'm actually in a middle of a sight. Whole migration makeover. So that's coming. I'm trying to make sure everything is in a location is right, and it looks good. Like it. It doesn't look terrible. Males like I'm evolving. So I wanna make sure people can easily find stuff, navigate it and visually, like you want to change things in the platform one. Now I can't do that. It's a proud, like it's just a headache when I look at him, so I don't want to do this right now. And because I also served a small business community in that capacity designing their website. I don't have time to have these kind of stresses with my own website like I'm trying to think of. How do I make your brand jump off the page? And I'm like, I'm staring at my own like like I don't want that to be a thing for me, And that's actually good Segway into my question for you is how do you balance your brand while building other brands in helping other people reach their goals? Ah, I think I'm struggling with it a little bit right now, because again, all of my work comes through word of mouth, which I am grateful for, every single referral. I appreciate it. So of course, my stuff comes after the clients worked all the time. So it's it's I'm a wife. I'm a mom. So a lot of my stuff keep jumping. I was like, I sent e mails, you know, scary hours, because that's when I have time to do it. Because when I come home, it's homework. You have this like, cook. It was like I you know, we relax, we spend time with each other and of course, we're campaign like it's a lot. It's a whole lot of all right are we don't too much of this over here. Hey, I think this area's a little lax. We need thio kind of balance it. So I was like, I'm very aware of it. So I was like, I think I've found my rhythm a little. Like I tell people like, I want you to do it like, Okay, I can't do that for, like another couple weeks because I already have five things right here, and I don't want anybody to not get the service or design they deserve because I'm 50. Sheets to the wind like that mean that goes around. My brain has too many tabs open. That's me, I'm like, So if I keep opening more tabs, this isn't helping me. I'm like, Oh, that was that over there. Like agent, You finish. Finish What? All right, So I have them. I'm very aware of how I operate. I was like, All right, look, I have three on the table right now. I can catch you in a couple weeks, if you can. Wait. If not, that project wasn't for me. This wasn't in the cards, but most we were open toe waiting anyway, so it's been good. It's just finding the balance. And I think I'm almost there like, I can't take on too much like we, especially as women. We turned out like I can do it all the things and we can, but we have to make sure that we're not trying to do. We don't have to do all the things we can, but we don't have to. So I have to say that you don't have to do this today. You know we don't, but what are you doing to take care of yourself. Oh, so I won't get my hair done today, So Okay. A hair appointment Monday. I am Officer. That's gonna be about self care. Day to kind of go shop a little court. They're shopping for the family in there, but shot for me, given nails on this weekend. Just little small things that again in between ripping and running. I don't think about it. I have to plan it in there. Like what? You have to plan it. Because if I don't, it won't happen. Because when you get five minutes, you're right. I'm just going to sit here. Why? Because I don't have anything to do. So I make sure I scheduled it in now. Okay, Now, you just you made me do the new IOS update the other night with everything that's going on with screen time and all of the new accountability portions. The interest on time. I don't do no work. I don't appreciate it. It's like it'll give you a little weekly. Someone like you spent 18 hours social numbers that did that, and it's like e. I was working when I wasn't holding the phone. Don't do me like that. Like Apparently I do no work. My productivity is like small, almost like sent me and I opened the email APP Does that count for productivity email that I was just deleting. Jump may also like, That's not it. That's productivity. It is cause after while I'm just like, I be ready to throw, the whole inbox would like. Look, I'm not reading this. I don't want to delete it. Just can we just start? Can we start from zero again? So you got me hooked on the APP spark for email. I love it because then it has the snooze button. Like if you read the e mail, but you don't have five minutes to read it, right? Then you like for Mommy Later that I opened this and did not reply because that happens. You did. I send this. I'm currently managing e mails for 13 different email account girl. And so it helps me get tired of the dings a lot, But it helps me to make sure I'm being responsive because before it's like, wait a minute. So, like, I got all these email address. What's that? So you know, just helping people stay on top of some projects that were managing. It's a lot. It's a lot. But spark has really been helpful. So thank you for the heads up on that one. And it's free. Yes. I was using inbox by Gmail, but in boxes going away in March. And every time I've decided, I love something that Google makes, they take it from me. And so I am tired of finding new abs that I'm in love with them in ages and I were happy. You like it? We've incorporated into the factory that is regular Gmail. So good luck finding your shit. So or it's the Hey, we've done this. But now you have to pay for this. Whoa, whoa, whoa. That's not why I'm here. I don't want to pay for extra. Like the spark is free because there's another one out there. I think it's Ah, Boomerang. It has the same. Somebody call us. All right? What? And he has a monthly fee. Nothing has just a flat fee anymore. You're going to act like you have to subscribe. Like unfortunately, no, this is the cheaper way to get adobe like, you know, they have a great cloud. So I used that. You know, back then, like your job like, Hey, we bought it. No people. We spent 2 $2000. What? Yeah, For just for the creative stuff. Not even for just Acrobat. What? Yeah, so this works. But it's just like it's really starting to feel like this is a There's a lot. I don't think this is mostly male like it comes out. I'm just lying because I was using ah Dobie Spark to make video, But I realized that there was a whole entire creative cloud suite that I don't have a need for. So, like, what am I paying for? So then I went to Ripple to make my videos and do little fun, cute stuff. I'm really missing. They'll be stopped. Spark Adobe. If you want to send me some credits, I appreciate it, but, um, you know, Adobe Spark has been helpful, but ripples A cute little adobe spin off and has a social media management portion in it, so you can schedule your post and I'm getting people adapted to that. People like to be able to make cute, see little videos about stuff right and not have to have years of knowledge of how to make graphical like Nobody has time for that. Even if you have the knowledge, you don't have the time and then ripples also helpful and telling you what your engagements look like. They make you accountable to post and things of that nature. So, hey, this post is getting engaged. Why don't you try or my other favorite feature Now it does is hey, this post isn't doing so well. Perhaps you should revamp. Let's let's give you some suggestions to rework it Talking about mama life. Um, how is your son adjusting with, Like, technology and middle school? Well, he's definitely, of course, he I'm honored, so he's never not been exposed to. But we just got on the cellphone man way and for like, what? Six months ago. I don't think it's been that long because, you know, we live in a house myself for little spurts of time, and there's no house phone. We don't have any for it. It was like cell phone. Everything's locked down and we have no social media thing, and it's not because well, it is because you can literally see anything on there. I'm like No and then there's cyber bulling. No, because he had a bullying issue in schools like we can't contain it here. I was like, I don't need you online with the same kids, and you feel like, Oh, my gosh. Like I said, don't let the kids or Bloom one of my cousins actually ended up like, hurt her cyber, bullying her into girl had before line and ended up having, like, oh, huge fight at school, Right? Because, you know, people take insides is like team this one team now one. And they literally got into a fight at school. Really? I can't like I don't know what I don't understand. We were growing up. I didn't like you. I just didn't talk to you. Well, so you don't have to enter Like is like they go out of their way to the public. I don't have time. I don't understand. It kind of feels, though people don't realize that their mouths create hand movements. So how you talk to someone on site, you know, it's on site. So I grew up on site. So you know, if you have a problem, we're not gonna have a problem that only you may want to beat me up later because I won and we can try again. But you know, immediate on the Internet amplifies that is like he is not just one sided on Sina like watching Cardi B and Nicki Minaj and to carry no one of that like That's not teaching our kids anything because in a lot of times it's the environment they come from, like it's their mimicking what they already see lying there, bringing it to school. And I'm just like, and then I at your Washington Real Housewives or you're watching the Kardashians and, you know, the Kardashian sisters will like Bully Courtney and Courtney's like I'm not having it, I don't care and, you know, but these kids, they're over exposed. So that was our big time, like him on the phone, like there's too much. He's like like he watched it. He spends most time on YouTube, and I was like, That's fine, depend on what it is, But I was like, There's so much I'm like, You don't need to know that he's not a bad kid like he's like okay, because he'll literally get into disagreements with people. It's like we have here. We had an argument, but we worked it out. I'm just like, What do you mean? You work there? He's like, You know, we talked about it. He's really upset. You know? His dad's not home. I said, What 12 12 12 year old? Ask those kinds of questions. They really do it. When I was 12 it'll been your mama. Everything else, like he's not like that. I was like, Who are you? When my kids when we were going through the divorce, my ex and I, My, um, my youngest son was like, Well, this is some co parenting scheduling that works for my friends. I exit all my friends, want fans or divorce how their schedule works. And so here's four options that I think will work best for our family. Really old for U. S. So he's like, you know, I would really prefer, you know, if we did like a split 50 50 versus one person fighting for full custody, it would really mean a lot because we used to both of you being in the home and it's like who be, you know. So who is this adult right? He has really mature conversations. And so and, you know, with him and technology. He's huge into YouTube and roadblocks and Minecraft tonight of roadblocks that he stuck on 14. We went through roadblocks in Minecraft, and, like, once he got the fortnightly I can't get on like you Can you? Can you not? Did you eat today, right? He's like, Yeah, wait, He's lying to you about he Look, he has a gun with him. Like, why are you announcing that? You have Because they need to know that you're not holding your station in the game. This is real life. Does Israel teaching teamwork, veer virtual. And I'm just like And then I was like, He's like, Well, they won't invite me to the party like I made each other happy. He accidentally blew me up. What? Yeah, your roommate. In real life, they don't notice each other and won't talk. But it was a man who is a grown ass man who threatened to stab a kid. An 11 year old child. He went to the school and everything. He family. They said that he had the address to the school and threatened the child over Fort nine. See this circles right back and say so. Exposure because kids will tell like, Well, did you like? Yeah, my parents believe. Don't think this is what we doing over here. Like it were dancing and liver intestine. Entity business. Not telling people everything online. Like they don't even know you here by yourself. None today. I'm like any old buddy open. Do we? Don't stranger danger. Two point. Oh, like the things that we learned. His kids don't know if don't want knocks on the door. Don't answer it. Oh, I figured it was the ovaries delivery. Well, who water over it? So I did. What the hell you know, it was like, Oh, mom, you know, I know you're running a little late. Can I ordered a pizza from Papa John's? Can you Can you pay palate into me and you? Okay. My oldest is like, Can you cash at me about the order dinner? Wait a minute. I'm coming home. This chicken defrosted and afraid. Just be patient. So technology has gone next level, giving them a whole another level of accident. And it's just so we just were like, we're not in his face like, Hey, what? You doing? I'm doing this, okay? He's like Mommy. Look at this. What is that like? So we just we keep an eye on your social media. Still huge New. So my oldest had some secret social media when he was about 10 that we found on, but it was complete. His Facebook page was completely inappropriate. So we did a social media contract. He does have an instagram page, but he mainly just uses it to follow it for his little hickory tight things for Dragon Ball Z and whatever video games he plays with his friends. But my youngest, he started the whole YouTube channel and you said no, like wait a minute. What's this? Oh, you know, I had 73 views on my livestream with fortnight. And, you know, I build something in Minecraft and people wanted to know how I built it. So I did a build like What do you mean? Like I want a logo and I should get a domain. Is it too early? S so I told him I said, you know, right now, your mind is still all over the place. I said I have 16 domains, so if I can't keep my little tabs, you know, close and very. Which tab I'm working from. I can only imagine what kind of foolishness he's going to kill. You know, mama named cheap dot com. I can get a domain for, you know, blah, blah, blah. And I'm like, what you know about named she So he's like So I guess he actually listens to me when I'm giving consultations and talking to people on the phone. And it's really interesting what they learn because their dad is that he is. Well, so So these locations are killing. They absorb everything, even when you think they're not paying attention to you or it looks like they just flat out ignoring you. They hear you. It'll come back up later. Yeah, I heard you weren't, Did you? Could You didn't answer me like the 1st 2 times. So that's the third time I didn't care. I was ready to fight you, so I'm not gonna fight you. I'm just gonna cut the wifi off. Um, the new plan is expected. He has the X fire. I don't know what type of cable you have, but we have we I think we haven't upgraded to explain. Okay, so it expires app, and you just say, Oh, it guess what? It's It's 9 30 No, I just have a schedule. PlayStation goes off 9 30 and mom PlayStations off cells that Can you take a shower? Well, you should've told your friends about five minutes ago. Just like, have you washed your eyes? Well, you know, does that you know, like you smell, but I'm not going anywhere. We you think you don't care. They don't. They don't boys down. Boys don't care. And it's to the point of I'm just gonna spray you and all your friends with for breeze and, you know, I get it. I get the sofas shampoo twice a year now because they smell like boy funk. And I don't I know what you know. My son, my oldest, has additional talkies and every coming, they're becoming harder to find, thank God. So because everywhere I go, they they're they're so the 7 11 used to get him from They don't have him anymore. And And when he does know where to find them in the international food section at the wake minutes, they have my shoppers to do. You have. I had never seen him in action. They have the big bags, so I tried. And I hate him. But I'm like if you're gonna get them and pay a dollar 89 to 7 11 6 to 50 bigger. I don't understand why you keep going to 7 11 for this bay. I'm over the talkies, I think. And then, like the inside of his lunch boxes, all over your hands over your much Why's it talking dust in here? He's just like he's like it. Sometimes they spill out. Have you eaten one? Try one. Just because he kept my mom there and as like, they stink. It's like molten lovely as you said. But I tried to talk to Dad. Didn't like you because I always so no, they try something first before you say Don't like, I've tried three different flavors. They're terrible pride, more than one yet because I was hoping that maybe they did got better with with eating them. And so you know I'm all for it. But you know what makes you happy? I eat what I be everything and no one likes what's hobby. So I get it. So somebody says they're sorry. I think about that little video with the baby when they gave her with hobby. Oh, help! I was like I was doing her. What would you feed a baby? Because she kept asking for it. I want to try it. She saw you eating it then Don't mean Inish. You'd like Colonel. I start what I was like. No, they gave her away too much. They should've gave her a little bit if you like. I think you're a little bread. Do something. Wife Her mouth out. Help her. Here was a milk. I don't I don't know. I forgot about that video. Yes, every time I have the loving sah bee, Just like help me about poor baby. But no man, no. So I know from stalking you on social media that you are a huge game with Thrones thing. Man, the book comes out on the 20th and that's what will be the only thing that's gonna hold my sanity until they actually give us a release date. Now, is this a real book or it's a three on book. It's a really book about the target. Aryan. So all those references they keep making in game of Thrones, Bran, the builder and all that stuff in that book. But it's so I've read all of the game of Thrones books that are out so far and and he's just not gonna give us one of winter. And I'm just like, fine, because when I pre ordered this on the book, I was like, Oh, this is like Winds of no And I said, What the hell? So I had to cancel it because I was discovered. I still don't get it. I need something. I need something. And then, of course, with HBO kind of running the narrative now what we get in the books is not gonna be what happens on the correct. It's just not correct. They have green lit the prequel stuff. Forget it, I say. OK, that's that's great. But can you give us a release date for this season that everyone keeps talking about, like so it's supposed to be coming out on this Bring bring summer so they're giving us lately they need to give us like April like they need to follow the Time line of April. Way already had to wait like an extra year That's not even fair. No, I need you to calm down. It's gonna look like first. He won't finish the book. I'm like, Okay, so that means you're working on the Siri's. Then hurry up. Finish something you like. I need you to realize, like, are we giving him health? Do you notice he has additional health care? Nobody said it was like he's not. He's gonna die before I say that he's not like I need closure, but at this point, just give me the notes. That right? Honorable Damien. What? The editor Conceicao. So I can least have some kind of closure in my life because I have invested years into the into reading these blanks will be anti social, Went to beach holding a candle, laid out People complain, Mom, come build with me. And I'm like, No, I need to find out what happens to denarius. And now they have You see it on the big screen and it doesn't match my book. Yeah, like Well, this is having I'm, like, you know, on Twitter there. Is that people that read the books first people just watch sauce it. Look, I'm not lording anything over anybody like you just watch the show. That's great. I'm like, however, as you know, a book reader like, Well, they just left it out like the whole lady, Stoneheart said. Wait a minute, we did. We not going to dress her. She's no Lady Stoneheart. I was really upset and I was like, Well, maybe next season when the white walkers kill everyone show, show, show up and be like the queen of the White Walkers or something that would that would be gangster. But be George R. R. Martin. But I'm like, What are you people doing? What I don't I don't care about this. What heavy? Where's Padraic? You know, like, where are my people? So every episode in my kids vanished. My kids know when they hear that the game of Thrones music to just be, you know, we have a light, you know most. So not a nerd, like at all. He doesn't do mythical anything. They was like, How do you watch that? I was like, We don't watch it like, you know, when game of dolls comes on, it's a TV and liberal because it used to be. The big cable box was in the living room when we switched to arm because we spent a lot of time in there. I was like, Go watch TV in the room. I'm watching everything. Also our mean let me nerd out and watch it. And literally from the beginning of the theme song to the end, I need to see the interest like we'll have to do my interpretive dance studio, right? I was like I was, like, literally the best intra music I've ever heard in my whole life. Great. It was my ring tone for my phone, really long time and people like, What's wrong with you? And I went to one Nationals game in, like freed. I didn't know what was going on in the game. He was like, What is wrong? Just like he's walking up to the mountain, the brains of casting like what he was like. Don't judge me, Don't don't do that. I was like, He's like, you know, me. I only know he's walking up. I don't even care. I ended the date once because the guy was like, You know what? I don't understand what all of this hope hope about it at some pub first of all because he was scheduling the dates on Sundays when game of Thrones was about like, and you agreed to go out. I want to know. So I think that, you know Hey, we're going to dinner. Dinner's at six. Game of Throne comes on at incidentally. Okay? It was really nice getting no, you came with. Thrones is about to come on, and I have to get my uber so I can get home in time. He's like, you're really gonna in the I don't understand. Hopefully what you're not going to do is tell me about my show. I'll talk to you later. So then insecure came on before? No. Gosh, um, game of Thrones. And what is HBO doing? So, you know, you're sitting at your life and what you see, and then you go into, you know, white walkers. And I don't think that was a good trans. No, it's not. It's not good. Second, but like, look, you can't have me over here and take no. But then I feel like they should have made more episodes of insecure to keep their ratings up because down about to cut HBO off until theres something or wait a minute. Think true detective comes back, which I feel like this season is gonna be good because that was his name. I can't pronounce his name, right? He was in moonlight and he was a Captain Johnson's husband. And hidden figures. No, I'm going to be okay. I can't pronounce the name, but I feel like that's I feel like that's what I think that Sunday I have to check. See, I watch a divorce on HBO was sir just a Parker. And it's funny. And what's my other show? I watch on there. Sometimes I watch ballers, but it's just starting to become to testosterone e. I fell off after the first season like it was good, but I like again like I couldn't keep opening, Of course, because we're always moving out so I can only commit a few shows at a time. Game of Thrones. Just snap, move. Look nowhere. Why are we not home game of Thrones? And I have some events that are gonna be happening on Sundays this spring in Oh, my God. It's really nice. Don't get on Twitter. No, I'm gonna have to watch it real time right now. I have like, But if you're not home, don't get on Twitter. They'll ruin it for you. I have to live. Tweeted it. Zero You got to be home. I gotta be home. Or have HBO go on my phone and go lock myself in the bathroom, which I've also done before. Like, Hey, anybody seen Bree? I'm watching HBO. Go, go. Go away. You mean like 45 more minutes? Yes, I think I'm trying to figure out is one huge thing elephant arrested. Who's going to explain then Danny and John thing, I say, Who's hotel? I was like, Who's going to tell them? His friend is gonna have to tell him? Because he's the one with the nation's leading brand. Tell him, because brand new already. And he's going to say it just is dry and monotone like so God, I'm tired of him being the creepy brother. I saw what happened to you, and I'm sorry. No, that you saw it. Like what? It needs to be delivered just like that. No, I am the one eyed raven. I see. Although we came back, he fell off. They pushed him off the thing, he came back weird, crippling, weird and come back weird until they came from visiting that tree. Oh, he had the tree years after that. He was like, he was already a little weird, period. But he was, like, extra. He doesn't say anything. And when he does, it's all cryptic. And you're like, what? Because, like, when, Sam. But he was like, Hey, this is what happened. He was like, Yeah, you know, I'm like and then they said, Well, to them, I was like, So is there a baby coming out like I have questions? Hurry up. I need those addressed in the first episode like I need it in the 1st 1 I don't think you're gonna dress, you know, he's gonna drag it out loud. Why? But if you remember Danny and that supposedly carrying babies but I shouldn't was because of the weird history, like it's gonna be something weird because they haven't addressed that whole three headed dragon thing like there's a piece missing. Current is the bait, like there's so many avenues he could do with this. It's going to be interesting. They better come correct. And they are because they said they were There was talk that they were gonna make it into three movies. HBO wouldn't give them the budget and HBO turn around and gave it to him so they could make these six Super Pac episodes. Because I'm I the only person that had this question. What happened to Ghost Lesson? And I was like, Wait, where's the dire? He was literally never left that man side. He weren't dead and he sat there and also the whole season note. No, I believe he's. But they said he felt it was a budget thing. It was like they didn't have the budget for the Dragons and the Dire Wolf, but did ghost with some what Some of the Dire Wolves died? No, but his didn't though. Ghost No, no trouble in real life. But they're not really not really real, but the one that they but the ones that play each individual character, they've actually been adopted at some point. And so I think arias and sound says died so I don't know, like in real life, you know, And they were like the budget. They say we couldn't do the dragons and excuse me, but I need two dragons like him But I was like, I'm gonna have a white walker. Tools left. They could find a budget for them to know We have a white walker dragon. So that whole thing I was just like, No, no, no. I was saying I was, because I have. So I have the actual dragon. Thanks. Oh, I have the eggs. And so now I have egg, and I colored it. I see color because people in my job think I'm crazy. I have stock, So I have a stark wolf at my desk. I have actual start start. Yep. How stark my notebook. I normally write in my journal. I gave it a friend of mine gave me use. Um, the night is dark and full of terrors. Um, have game of Thrones. All I want to do a cosplay when I do Blur con next year. I think I made you Miss Sandra or um, sir. See, it's a good black sir sees out there right now, but I wanted to Thirsty is gonna get hers, and it's gonna be so I'm excited. It's gonna be so it's gonna be good stuff. So she makes for a great TV, though I think you hate her, but she's a part of it. Like you have tohave hurling. You can't just write like she's a huge hearts. You hate her guts. Oh my God, I love her. I think she's awesome. It's a love hate thing like you can't just be if you're gonna be a bitch, Be a good bitch. You're the best there, you know? So that's my thing with thirst. She's like she's like the melody of the game of Thrones Monopoly. I have it. It's amazing. You guys gain our people touching it. No, you come. I trust you, I e. I let you in mo play, but I don't want random people touching my like I opened it for the first time and that closed back up on the play with the regular old is rapidly with a debit card. It's so awesome. You like touching it like dee dee dee dee dee dee dee dee dee and the kids like what is wrong with hardly get it. It's beautiful. Yeah, I'm some game of Thrones is she was definitely a good show, and they better come correct. And I don't know if I got like, I'm on like at HBO when I post this department can't land like a HBO game of Thrones. Get your shit together because this is a great show and, you know, doing, ah prequel. We don't really need all of it. I need a final book from George R. R. Martin Taylor told the Final Two books. That is gonna be one Mari, and I just need if he needs me to take leave of absence from my job to come and have a leave of absence from writing any new shows is that these books and that's what we need. And he's not going to do it like he's literally like It was like we saw him at a press junket. Sir, you have time to do this but not finished writing his book. But writing a book is hard, I know, but this one seems like he can't be. He can't have 50 tabs open. He needs one. I know he needs one terminal. He's got like, a wolf rescue farm. Um, he does outreach for, you know, homeless and and I can't even knock the you know, the those kind of rooms like Sir, he's been like 10 years How's your blood pressure like? Hey, you know who's your medical doctor? Deliver your annual check up. Are you all right, George? You know, don't stress him out. He's got work to do. Dear George, this is Bree. Um I need you to get your life together because I need my book, those air so well written in urine and that and that you have to appreciate, like, he's really giving you quality bums like he takes. And I love Harry Potter books. I really do. But it's nothing like no ah, game of Thrones bow. But I have a question for you in addition to game of Thrones with your other. What else we doing again? Because I'm not really at home like that When I am, um, half sleep, we end up like, binge watching. So I do like the shy I'm waiting for that to come back. Carly, get show. I was, like, wide again by taking so long. But, you know, I get it. You got a lot going on? Yes, all that sort of. Okay, it'll be and I'm in hindsight, I'm, like, really did. Just watching this year is the extra impatient right now. because again, every end every episode I'm like, Wait every episode, come back. I'm not done. Well, you remember. We're also Netflix spoiled that too, So you can watch a whole Siri's and fight like so that's what we do. Like I I know Quantico was canceled and I just discovered it like a month ago. And now I'm on season three and I'm just like hell is going on. And it started off so good at this is why this is why I can't say it went left. I was like, and it's not coming back. I was like, Ryan and Shelby doesn't wait a minute. You see, I just started. I got DC Universe coz I wanted to see the Titans on the first episode like Okay, I'll give it one more episode, so it's starting to delve into it. I have a huge team Titans fan that's like the only real DC comic book that I have deal with. And so you watch the gifted. Yes, yes, me and TJ washed I Even so, D. J was punished for a few weeks, his phone while back. So we're behind on the gift because I'm not supposed to watch it without you. That's a family thing. So now, But look, because he plays fortnight. I was like, So what? Are we gonna watch it? He was like, um he's like his next Sunday. We're for us. Said you pencil. Let me in, girl. So what we that's his next available for us to watch, Like, five episodes. I was like You sure. So the only due to our blocks of gay men. You get two hours. I need to take a 30 minute break. I don't care if you eat. I don't care if we draw a picture. I don't care what you don't to our black one weekend, because where's your homework? You'll have no homework, right when he gets like homework and then let him look. I only got 30 minutes, but Homer's done. I don't care about that, right, like so this week, and he's got a project due next week, which I told him that I just gave you a whole alley and you're not even a priest. So the teacher gave them. It's science class. The lunar cycles, different little things. But your project total has to come up to 5000 points so right? No, but it's like different things that you do or worse, certain point. So like one of them, I think, is like make a flip book is worth 2000. Sometimes you gotta do to other things singing $5 he said. Well, if I write a Children's book best 5000 points Okay, you could do to ask it always like Do you want better also to go to a little extra mile? Because I keep tunnels like teachers care about that? I'm saying that they notice it was like, Why don't you do the book and then do an audio book to go anything like, What is that? You just read the book and record it. He was like, Oh, I was like, It's not in your real work. You did the work with the boy. You're just reading the book out loud. He's like People listen to books. Yes, People listen to books when I driving, when they wanna try a good amount of money to audible everyone E. I just gave you, like a whole extra 2030 points on your project superstar. All right. Also, she's like, Oh, dear. L went the extra mile because that was It's not even on the list. Over. You can't do that all by yourself. And he was like, I was like I said, just a little extra eyes. Like I said, they noticed. See those mommy Magic. And they don't appreciate that. Right now. I have to go to college and do this by yourself. I'm just throat shop in the high school senior. I'm just trying to make it to me. 30. If I just need you to get out, I need you to get I love you, honey. But, um, it might May 30th is my target. Due date to just take Did I take, like, I guess I can get a two week mom vacation? Just process senior years. I don't remember. I don't remember school being this intense, I think when we were eight degrees in sounds like you have to take the P s a t now. Yeah, peachy. Before you go to high school. What, you didn't even know that was like 10th grade. Yeah, I was like, and it's to get into other programs. I was like, because his monitor school is not it Girl way could talk about that offline. I got some tips and tricks to get you to go. But I know my, um, these boys in P g county schools because I really feel like the school system is already behind, and now they're starting to play catch up, and they're trying to overdo it over there. There there be only got beaten the kids over the head, man. All right. Just like these kids couldn't read two years ago. And now they got take the PCT Like what? And some kids just don't test well, it like it's a two and 1/2 hour test. A lot to my oldest is not a tester. He's great at getting things done, getting these ideas fixed. He's a tech guy. He understands the big picture. He does not want to sit and take a test that he gets that honestly from his mama because I didn't like test either. And but, you know, this school system right now is is nerve racking. And, you know, I know that I need to do a better job because I got 1/6 grader. So I need to get up to the schools and, you know, I'm tired of beating principles over the head and you make a good conversation, make a good connection with people, and they find new jobs. So I mean, that's just life. But because they're not paying our teachers enough, they're not supporting. Those teachers are like because I've been to back to school nights and I get everybody wants to be an advocate for their key. But, like, I was like, You guys are literally intimidating these teachers. They don't know how to communicate with the parent or they don't want to or you're not accepting that this. They're not my child parent. I'm like, Look, your kid is not the night and day when they may not here, trust me and I'll try it. We need to do better than just going back to school night, you know, beating the kid in front of the class when they get a call, right? Why weren't you engaged off school? Right? Because they think they're like, Wow, I didn't know what my child and I was like. Look, I told him, you can call me even on me. Text me. I don't care if he's she was like, Well, I don't if it's disturbing your date. He's disturbing your day. Yeah, so we have a problem right there. Don't worry about what I'm doing between my ex husband and I Both of us can get up to that school within 15 minutes. So you know, if one of us need to come up there, you know, it's been a couple times both of us have had to come up there. And he don't want Mommy to just pop up like I do pop ups. And then my father, my dad works on Andrew's School is Dangerous and Census Bureau. His stepfather works at the other end of the street, so it's like they could get their 15 minutes. I said, You kind of he doesn't want them there. He's like, he's like, they're gonna kill me. I said, I have to write a 45 minutes one hour to get to you. I'm going to kill you from Tyson's because you don't know how to act in school. Yeah, he wants to die, right? I'm like, don't don't you that you're not on set in traffic for I don't have just to get there. Turn around. You don't know how to live your life in school. So he's living life dangerous? No, he has moments, but the teachers will call. And usually, if he talked to me, she's like, he was all right, the rest today. But they're the most logical. You know what? I'm off today and I'll come back. I think one time I just showed like I waited. Tough school started again. Something I just tapped on the window. He was I was like, doesn't come here. He was, like, do anything. I was like, Good. I'm just looking. And he was like, You don't have to stay. It was like, You sure don't have e got time today. As I go to all your classes, I can sit and take those people like Ma. I was, like, act like I'm here all the time because I can be here whenever I want. Like they got WiFi. I could work from right here. Yep, girls like, but I will be angry while I'm working from right here because I shouldn't have to do that. You're too old. You're not a baby. I was like, You're 13. I was like y'all conveniently. You'll want to be grown when you want to be noticed Night is works. Enjoy it while it lasts. That's all I'm gonna say. But I just want to say thank you so much for coming today. I really appreciate. Thank you for having me down.
