Milk Chocolate Pudding

This week on the Joy the Baker Podcast, Joy and Tracy talk about proof.  Proof that you married the right man.  Proof that you’re dating the wrong dude.  Proof that we’re odd… and proof that we’re not Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.  Ps… that show is JUICY this season…. get on it.

Oh.  Also… Tracy is obsessed with television subtitles.  The proof of that is uh-mazing.

The proof is in the pudding.  Wait… the proof is in the chocolate pudding? Yes.  Clearly.  Delicious.

Tracy is obsessed with television subtitles.  She really does catch some gems… I think she should make a whole website dedicated to this endeavour.  It’s just too good!

Joy is in a Death Becomes Her faze.  I dunno.  It’s the Oil Cleaning face cleansing method.  It’s addictive.  Forever young!!

  1. I have a suggestion for making new friends in new cities! When I moved to Seattle, I did Meetup’s (www.meetup.com) and found some groups that did: hiking & happy hours with 20/30 somethings! It’s pretty awesome. Not only do you have more established people showing you cool stuff to do, you also get to meet people with pretty (and hopefully) similar interests along the way. I know I made some pretty stellar friends!

    Oh, and alumni groups for your college work well too!

    Good luck making new friends!

  2. I use subtitles a lot too, despite having perfectly normal hearing. Mainly whenever I watch something where all the characters have British accents (I ALWAYS watch Love Actually with subtitles) or in shows that I’ve seen a million times before (like Friends) so I can catch things that I’ve missed. I love that you used How I Met Your Mother and 30 Rock as examples – those are two of my fave shows!

    • Soooooo glad I’m not the only one!

      • I like to watch w/ subtitles…partly because of the British thing but also I used to live near a major highway, so the traffic hindered my ability to hear dialogue. Funniest incident: Watching Fiddler on the Roof, they spelled out “Daba daba daba daba daba daba daba dum” as he sang “If I Were a Rich Man”.

  3. Ahhh! I love subtitles. Sometimes I find myself not looking at the screen and just reading the subtitles. Plus, I love that you had a line from the Barefoot Contessa episode of 30 Rock. “I’m not as strong as Geoffrey Garten!!” Love. Thanks for sharing, gals. Your podcast is the highlight of my week.

  4. I, too, wake up starving in the morning. Breakfast is usually an immediate need. Thanks for the fun!

  5. Your anthropologie box will cause a cry fight in my house later. Just kidding! Love the podcast and all the giggles it gives me!!

  6. Subtitles crack me up. I love when it says something different and then I’m all,”oh, that’s sooo not right!” Or the *muffled laughter* sound effects are described. HI. Lar. Ious.

    Only 30 seconds in, had to pause it! I have to avoid the phrase “running errands” because my 3 year old always expects to go to her Uncle Aaron’s! Our time out is filled with, ” when will we get to Aaron’s” and ” where does Aaron live again”. Kinda’ tough for her to grasp he is in Alabama.
    Love connecting with you through this podcast, can’t wait to meet you both at Homefries U!

  8. some people don’t even believe they’re pregnant when the baby comes out…true story. I feel your caller’s pain…it’s hard to make friends as an adult.

  9. I was listening to the podcast today and at the point where Tracy gives a shout out to Casey (“HIIiiii, I’m talking about you!”), my son Oliver said “HI!” back and started waving at the computer. He’s one-year-old and we listen to all your podcasts together. He especially likes the opening and closing music … there’s a dance ….

    Hi girls – love the pocast! Just wanted to chime in about the pregnancy thing. When I was pregnant with my first baby I had no clue (and I found out about three hours into my honeymoon so, yowza). But with my second, I was one of those people that KNEW. Even when I did a test and it was negative. I knew. Very early on I had walked past some laundry I was drying and the smell of the washing powder was so strong. That super-human smell happened the first time around. And this was a week before I was even late!

  11. Maybe I’m weird because I listened to this podcast twice…

    I like Tracy’s proof that she married the right man. My man is the same. He doesn’t want me to lose weight or change how I am cos “I married YOU!”, he says. I’m grateful he likes my chubs, acne, general weirdness and all… <3

    So I just tried putting olive oil on my face (since I am currently lacking a supply of castor oil) and my face feels the softest it’s ever been. Amazing tip! Thank you so much!

    I always have at least 5 tubes of Carmex at all times. It’s addictive!

  15. Tracy, I use do the SAME THING with Carmex every single night, too! I’m glad I’m not the only one that does that. :)

    Uh, SUBTITLES ARE THE BEST. You don’t miss dialogue, people can talk over and and you don’t have to rewind if you’re the only loser actually paying attention to the TV, and if the subtitles were written for the hearing impaired there will often be awesome, oddly-specific details about the sound (I once saw “[medium-tempo staccato drum march]” on the Pirates of the Caribbean DVD). I’ve converted many friends, family and some exes to this system and while they all are weirded out by it at first (“But the movie’s in English…”) almost everyone learns to love them. As you should. Thanks for not being the only one, Tracy! Joy, get on that!

    hello from a newly preggo mama!

    so on the whole thing about knowing you are pregnant: “when you are pregnant you just KNOW.”

    this happens. yep. (maybe not for everyone.)

    true story: one Sunday morning hubby and I are at church, and the pastor is talking about “unexpected major changes in life” and I start thinking, hmmm…I am a week late and hmmm…my boobs are sore and that’s not normal, and then something in my brain/soul/spirit just clicked and I KNEW. btw, I had not even questioned whether this might be the case before I got this very sudden “sense”.

    sooo…
    thought #1) OMG, I’m think I’m pregnant.
    thought #2) OMG, this was NOT planned, we were NOT trying…how do I tell my hubby kindly and not freak out first? do I go to the drugstore and make sure this is real first? yes, let’s do that.

    and then…pee-on-a-stick and 2 minutes later…HOLY FREAKING COW. how did THIS happen? (don’t answer that *giggle* :)

    so now…how do I break the news subtly while I’m not so subtly freaking out?

    Answer: your husband apparently gets a sense that you might have been taking a pregnancy test in the bathroom and asks you straight up: “hey honey, do you have a baby ‘in there’?” When you nod and cry (still freaking out and not sure what to say), he gives you a giant hug and holds you and couldn’t be happier.
    ***ps. ladies: this is also PROOF that you married the right man!***

    sorry to be long-winded, but yes, sometimes you just KNOW. and in the right circumstances and the right relationship, that can be a pretty amazing thing! (I’m due to be a mama sometime late May-early June 2012!)
