Show Notes:

  • Cody and Jon argue about whose story should go first in this podcast episode, which somehow turns into a tangent about Omega Virus
  • Cody retells the story of how he proposed to his girlfriend and got engaged! Prominently featuring empanadas and the historic Music Box Theatre in Chicago
    • Hear also how and why Cody ended up ordering a ton of Insomnia Cookies after splitting a bottle of champagne with his new fiance
    • Jon gives some of his perspective as a somewhat recently married man to help Cody prepare for what wedding planning is about to be like, as they both speculate on when Cody might actually schedule his wedding
  • Meanwhile, last weekend Jon ran 7 miles (!), then got a couples massage, then got horribly sick and basically almost died
    • “So, your weekend? Way better than mine” is Jon’s genius conclusion
    • Cody and Jon trade sick day stories, including that time Cody literally couldn’t physically go to Starbucks for work
  • Balancing Act
    • Jon rates his satisfaction with video game playing over the last couple weeks at a 1 out of 10, because he basically just laid around wanting to die because he was so miserably sick (although he did beat Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII)
    • Cody gives himself a 7 out of 10 because he beat New Game+ in Rogue Legacy, plus he’s playing Final Fantasy XIV again and he’s really excited about reaching Heavensward content now
    • For some reason, Jon doesn’t realize that the Nintendo Switch is about to change his life, so Cody sets him straight
