Episode 168!

We’re back again with Trampy Smurf because she helped Matt move all day and that means something. Who knows what, but it means something. In other news we talk about moving, the cold, relationships, and how we present ourselves to the world. This week’s Fast Five provides some epic laughs as well.

Also, as we mentioned in the episode, our friend Tawn (our first guest and returning guest on episode 100) is in need. Please help if you can.

    Seriously, gotta be a real dick to do that.

    On the subject of stocking up on water… last Tuesday night I took some gallon jugs to the store and filled them, but that was because I had a pipe burst and had to turn off the water to my entire house overnight. Man, not having running water is hassle when you’re so used to it being there.

    About shifting one’s behavior or being true to yourself… this is obviously very subjective and is going to differ from person to person. Your mileage my vary, so to speak. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with moderating your behavior in, um, moderation, in order to be appropriate to the situation, but how much depends on what you personally think crosses that line into being fake. Using Matt’s example of swearing, I think we all have a range of how much we’re likely to swear depending on certain variables. If you choose to avoid it because it’s just not appropriate to the situation or because you genuinely don’t want to make someone uncomfortable, that’s fine, as you’re not pretending to be someone else.

    It’s the flip side of what Salsa said, when he’s performing he’s an amped up version of himself. I very much see what I do as the Concierge that way at fest, I’m just being my normal, innate “helper” personality but I try to do it with a sense of playfulness and fun that isn’t my everyday level. (In Myers Briggs terms I’m an ESFJ which is actually referred to as “the helper” in the personality type descriptions.) A few weeks ago Matt also mentioned that his normal thinking face is sort of a scowl, so when walking at fest he’s trained himself to make sure he smiles more so he’s less scary as a random, tall, dirty-costumed guy on the street.
