Continuation from Part 1...
Meliza Manalo 32:28
No, but yeah. I totally get what you're saying. Cuz yeah, I'm just always busy.
I know. It takes me a month to be penciled into your busy schedule.
Meliza Manalo 32:39
Yeah, oh my God. I stopped...
You're so popular.
Meliza Manalo 32:42
I stopped buying planners though. Cuz I was like, I'll just do it electronically. Like killing too many trees with my plans. So, the quarantine, no actually even with the quarantine. That sounds really bad to say 'Stay safe. Wear a mask', but...
I love wearing a mask. The only thing I don't like about it is it makes my acne really bad.
Meliza Manalo 33:03
Oh, yeah. Me too.
Meliza Manalo 33:04
Oh, I think mine went away. But I was getting major acne on my chin.
I have to wash it a lot.
Meliza Manalo 33:10
Because I don't get acne. But these masks. Man! They're killing me. Like my nose...
They need to come out with a laundry detergent that you can use in your sink for mask that has salicylic acid in it or something.
Meliza Manalo 33:22
They probably do.
What if I could just wash my mask with my salicylic acid bodywash stuff?
Meliza Manalo 33:29
Like the inside of it. You don't know what salicylic is?
Meliza Manalo 33:35
I know what it is. But I mean, let us know how that works. For cleaning your mask.
Oh, I will on my next appearance.
Meliza Manalo 33:41
Meliza Manalo 33:47
Oh mine. So, are you done?
Wait, what's your least one though?
Meliza Manalo 33:51
Yeah, what is your least one?
Meliza Manalo 33:52
Because I already said.
Meliza Manalo 33:54
Yeah, makes sense.
You don't like gifts?
No, I love gifts. But I mean like... (Laughter)
Meliza Manalo 34:01
No one hates gifts.
Meliza Manalo 34:02
It's just lower on the totem pole.
Meliza Manalo 34:06
And I guessed that because you always want to do something.
Oh, for the birthday?
Meliza Manalo 34:09
Yeah. Not really gifts.
But this year sucks. Because we didn't do like, I feel like we didn't do anything.
The 25th yeah.
Meliza Manalo 34:15
Yeah. Cuz that's when we went locked down.
That's all good.
I didn't even get any feedback on my gift.
I haven't gotten it yet.
Meliza Manalo 34:22
Oh, for real?
Wait, are you serious?
Yeah. Did you ship it to my house?
Meliza Manalo 34:27
No. Because you have it.
You have it.
Meliza Manalo 34:30
Oh my God. You're gonna get that right now?
Meliza Manalo 34:38
Yeah, that'll be our quality time without the invisible guest. But that's the hard part.
Like, I love receiving gifts from other people. But I'm not the one that's like, "Oh, you have to get me a gift on my birthday."
Meliza Manalo 34:50
And also, I'm really hard at showing my emotion when I open.
Meliza Manalo 34:56
Me too. I feel like a sociopath sometimes.
Yeah. I know, when we gave you your mixer, that was so cool.
Meliza Manalo 35:04
I love giving you gifts. You're the best person to give gifts to. Because you appreciate everything. Every little thing.
Y'all are so good at getting good gifts though.
Meliza Manalo 35:11
Hell yeah, we are.
I need to bake something.
Meliza Manalo 35:14
I still need to make you those cookies.
Meliza Manalo 35:17
Bailey is a great baker.
Reese's. Make something with Reese's butter Cups.
You want me to make Reese's?
No, I said make something with.
Meliza Manalo 35:25
Peanut butter and chocolate mmmmm.
Oh, I should make some brownies with the Reese's peanut butter Cups in the middle.
Meliza Manalo 35:30
Yeah. Oh Casey, you need to try those peanut Butter Cups. Anyways, sorry.
No, I'm going to do half Reese's peanut Butter Cups in the same brownie batch and then the other half is going to be cookie butter.
Meliza Manalo 35:43
Oooh. That sounds good.
That sounds so bomb right now.
Meliza Manalo 35:49
Yeah, it does. Okay. So, we talked about the least favorite.
Okay. What's your least favorite? It's gifts okay. Okay, I think you're number one...
Meliza Manalo 36:00
So, this is... I took the couple one. So...
It's hard. It's hard because I feel like I don't know.
I got the same thing on both though. The questions are very similar.
Meliza Manalo 36:14
I feel like I'm a hard book to read.
You are. Because I don't really know anything about yours and Brandon's relationship.
Meliza Manalo 36:23
Because I don't ask. Because it's not my place to ask.
Meliza Manalo 36:26
I'm also a very private person.
Yes, you are, honey. That's one of the qualities I love about you the most. That's because you have such a high level of self-respect and self-dignity.
Meliza Manalo 36:34
That's why it's weird to have these podcasts at the same time. Because I'm kind of a private person.
Because you're kind of like opening up.
Meliza Manalo 36:40
Yeah, that's what I was saying.
But it's good for you.
I feel like social media has kind of opened you up a little bit.
It's good for you. This is so like, you in your element.
Like you are glowing right now. See, this is why we need the camera.
Meliza Manalo 36:55
Watch Mia grow... glow. Glow not grow.
Grow and glow.
Meliza Manalo 37:04
What do you think Casey? If you had to guess?
If I had to guess I would think quality time. I'm not sure yet.
Physical touch? No, I'm a narcissist so I think everyone's like me. Ummm... I want to say gifts. Because I feel like every time Brandon gets you a gift, it's a really good gift. And you're freaking. You're just like, "Oh, I can't believe you got me this knife set."
Meliza Manalo 37:31
Oh, that knife set is really good. I love those knives. Ahem... so, no. (Laughter) Casey is kinda... she's number two.
I'm gonna guess.
Meliza Manalo 37:45
So, my number one is 'Acts of service'.
Meliza Manalo 37:50
Yeah. What? Why is your face like that?
Because now I'm like, oh, I need to do more acts of service for Mia. And I need...
But like, what does that mean to you?
Like helping you move?
So, what was your percent? Do you know?
Meliza Manalo 38:06
No. I didn't write it down. Sorry. It's like thirty something percent.
Oh, wait, is this for Brandon?
The couple one.
Meliza Manalo 38:11
Yeah, I took the couple one.
Meliza Manalo 38:13
It does. It fits for every relationship, you know. I love when people do little things for me. I love when they don't think about it. If they know I'm having a hard time and then they do something to help me out without being asked, without being told. It's just like, they just feel they can help out and I love that. Because I like helping people out too. Even in Animal Crossing, I always pay bells for their bridges.
Meliza Manalo 38:45
But you guys don't play Animal Crossing. Wrong group.
You should do one with them.
Meliza Manalo 38:51
Yeah, I want to do all kinds of interviews. I even want to go and branch out and interview random people. Or even listeners. I will even interview a listener. Anyone that wants a little platform to talk to, I'm down for that. So, if you guys listen to Chatty Broads, I love when they interview just random a*s, random people. Like they did a sex worker one, they've done people who read auras. They've done like, what else do they do?
Meliza Manalo 39:25
Yeah, just every walks of life. I think it's so fascinating learning about people's different occupations too. Even the super obscure ones. Like...
Like a sex therapist?
Meliza Manalo 39:39
Yeah, like weird ones, too. Like, there's like a Sex witch?
Meliza Manalo 39:46
There's all kinds of different ones. Right now, it's just family. I'm gonna do one with Patrick. Patrick is so excited to do. He texted me he's like, "Lets catch up on the... "(burp sound). (Laughter) My bad. So, he texted me.
(Laughter) That bobbing weave motion though.
Meliza Manalo 40:10
It was showing together on mic. I was like eww.
Don't want to burp your Coronavirus on the mic. (Laughter)
Meliza Manalo 40:22
Oh my God. Anyways, Patrick texted me and said, "Good job on the podcast."
Awww. He's such a sweetheart.
Meliza Manalo 40:28
And I was like, "Yeah I got to get you on there." And he's like, "Yeah." He's like, "I'm down this weekend." I was like, "Hold up." I need to plan this stuff. There are other episodes that I need to edit and stuff. But I want to get him on there. Yeah, because Patrick can talk for a day.
Yeah, he can.
Meliza Manalo 40:44
He has thought about doing his own podcast.
He is probably an introvert extrovert?
I feel like he's an extrovert.
Meliza Manalo 40:50
Yeah. Social media beast? Extrovert. Real life Patrick? Probably a little more introverted. Not saying like he's not real on social media.
He can talk and talk, but I think he's a little bit of an introvert.
Meliza Manalo 41:05
Because he doesn't. I don't know. Oh, I guess we'll get to that one. We get to his episode; I'll ask him what he thinks he is. I'll give him a little quiz or something to take. Anyways, what were we talking about?
It'd be cool if you made your own quiz.
Meliza Manalo 41:19
Make my own quiz? I could.
Like in Quizlet or something?
Meliza Manalo 41:22
Just come up with different questions.
Meliza Manalo 41:24
I'm just not an expert on it. Because I just google stuff.
But I feel like you can become an expert, the more you learn about it. Maybe after your first season, you'll have enough knowledge of interviewing different people. You'll be able to come up, like, you can start writing down questions as you're interviewing and talking with people about it. And then you can come up with your own quiz. And then, like going forward...
Get to know your people.
Yeah. It could be something for your listeners to take part of and then your listeners can share their answers like on Instagram and stuff.
That'd be a great plan. Ask yourself. "Hey guys!"
Meliza Manalo 41:58
Like, you know, introduce it in every episode so that every new...
Meliza Manalo 42:01
"Take my quiz."
Yeah. Every new listener would like...
Something that you plug at the beginning of each episode.
Yeah. That's what it is. A plug.
Meliza Manalo 42:07
Yeah, that's a good one. I'll think about that.
But like, yeah, dude. I feel like it's a basic thing that people should know about themselves.
Meliza Manalo 42:15
Yeah. I think so too. Because then it helps you realize what you prefer. Because I didn't think of myself as an introvert until later.
Meliza Manalo 42:24
Well, I didn't think of myself as an extrovert either. But I didn't know stuff either way.
Meliza Manalo 42:33
I'm not out there. Like now I'm, yeah, I'm an introvert. But back then I just...
Yeah, that's like finding out about your zodiac. You love to learn.
It just depends on whatever you like to be.
Do you all know your zodiac? Like your Sun, Moon and Rising?
Meliza Manalo 42:47
I just know I'm a Capricorn.
I just know the real one. Just not the Sun, Moon.
Meliza Manalo 42:52
Yeah, I don't know what my Sun or Moon is either.
So, my Sun is Leo because of my birthday. It's next week. Yayy! My birthday is August 12. So, my Sun sign is a Leo, but my Moon is...
Meliza Manalo 43:10
So, before Bailey reveals her moon sign, I want to talk to you guys about Instacart. Instacart does the shopping for you and delivers your grocery to your doorstep. They connect you to a personal shopper who you can easily chat with online or on the mobile app. It's super easy to use and saves you on travel time and going through the store. Listeners will receive free delivery on your first order over $35. Follow the link in the description to let them know I sent you and to help support the show. Use Instacart and you'll never step into a grocery store again.
My Moon is Taurus and then my Rising is, what is it? Aquarius.
Meliza Manalo 43:48
Do you guys know a lot about that stuff? Cuz I think we can do an episode.
I know a little bit about. I just know lately from listening Chatty Broads and doing my own research.
Meliza Manalo 43:55
I know nothing about it.
I don't know in depth. I just know months and the Zodiac.
Meliza Manalo 44:02
Like I don't understand why where the moon is and the stars and the planets and how is that like.
Listeners. If any of you listeners know a lot about Zodiac and want to read our charts, we can tell you our Sun, Moon and Rising. And you can tell us what that means.
Meliza Manalo 44:21
Ooh. Oh, you can go on the episode. DM me.
Slide into those DMs.
Meliza Manalo 44:24
No one DMs me. (Laughter) Kind of a few.
DMs are really hard though to keep.
Meliza Manalo 44:30
Plus, if you're an introvert, you know. That's why you feel like I don't have a lot of engaging people either. But I don't know. Whatever. That's all good.
Yeah. Start small.
Meliza Manalo 44:44
Okay, so yeah. So, it's 'Acts of service', then my second is 'Quality time', 'Words of affirmation', 'Gifts' and then 'Physical touch' is my last one.
Yeah. She hates it when people touch.
Meliza Manalo 44:58
Yeah. Didn't you know that?
Do you remember that one time in high school where you had something on your face, and I licked my thumb and tried to get it off?
Meliza Manalo 45:07
Oh my God. I flinched so hard.
You freaked out and Courtney started laughing. (Laughter)
Meliza Manalo 45:13
I absolutely hate it when people touch my face.
Meliza Manalo 45:20
Yeah. I can't tell you how many times someone tried to take an eyelash off. It's my face, like I don't care if you're doing that, but my face in general, I cannot let someone touch my face.
So, Brandon, does he ever grab your face and kiss your face?
Meliza Manalo 45:37
Yeah, and I don't.
You don't like it?
Meliza Manalo 45:40
Not really. I know he hates it. Because he likes touching my face, but...
Awww. You guys are so frickin cute.
Meliza Manalo 45:49
I don't know what is with my face. I don't know if it's some childhood trauma. I have no clue what the basis is with my face specifically. Because everything else is like, whatever.
I mean, you don't have to know though. Like just, it'd be how it'd be. It'd be like that. (Laughter) That's what the kids are saying. It'd be like that sometimes. But not sometimes. In this situation, always. Never touch the face.
Meliza Manalo 46:15
Never touch the face. I don't know if my listeners know what I look like because I don't post selfies on Instagram or anything.
Meliza Manalo 46:22
My account is private on Instagram, my personal account. But if you watch Casey's videos, I'm on some of them. (Laughter) But if you ever see me in public, please do not touch my face. I'll just freak out. I'll just run away. (Laughter)
Oh my God. Do you want to hear the creepiest story ever?
Meliza Manalo 46:43
Is this the gas station story?
Meliza Manalo 46:46
Okay, yeah. I don't know if Casey knows about that one.
Okay, so I was at a gas station and I was pumping gas. And there was this dude across the way at the other pump. And he saw me, and he walked over. I was like...
Meliza Manalo 47:07
Just someone rando too?
Meliza Manalo 47:10
Old creepy rando.
Meliza Manalo 47:12
It's old people.
Well, don't be creepy then.
Don't be creepy.
Then don't be creepy. But I was 23.
What time of the day was it though?
It was like an afternoon. So, it wasn't at nighttime. But I was 23-24. Because we had the same car, and I kind of just said like, "Oh, hey, we have the same car." I guess I invited it. (Laughter) Casey's face right now. Well, then he came over and he was like, "There's something on your face." And he tried to wipe something off of my face.
And I was just like, what just happened?
And he just walked away?
Yeah. I got in my car and drove off. I was scared. I was so scared.
Meliza Manalo 48:01
That is so weird.
Meliza Manalo 48:04
Did you wash your face after?
Yes. When I got home. And what's even weirder is that the house, that you guys used to live in together? I was leaving your house and I turned out on the main road. And I was driving, and I saw his car.
Meliza Manalo 48:19
It was terrifying.
Meliza Manalo 48:24
Yeah. I don't touch people's face.
I mean, especially a stranger, a young girl.
A stranger. Yeah.
Meliza Manalo 48:29
At the gas station too, he just held the gas pump.
A young girl at a gas station.
That's scary. Don't do that.
Yeah. Don't ever do that. If someone did that to me now, oh, I'm not the right person to do that to. I would come unglued if somebody ever. If I was at a gas station and somebody started walking up towards me, you know, I'll go to jail defending myself. I don't care. You know what I mean? Like no, that's not a good idea to do that to me. But I'm crazy. (Laughter)
Meliza Manalo 49:08
That's good though.
But when we were at the park. Remember?
Meliza Manalo 49:12
We were just sitting on a bench and this dude on a bike came like rolling up. And it was weird because we were sitting right here, and he walked right in front of us to get to the water fountain. And I didn't really know what to do. I think that's like a social anxiety. I think what I should've done is maybe, I didn't want to get up though and move.
Meliza Manalo 49:37
Like have a confrontation also?
Yeah. I didn't want to do that. I didn't think that was appropriate. But it's just like, just don't do that. Especially to two females, like don't ever roll up on to women, or a woman or really anybody in any public situation.
That kind of happened to me when I went to the gas station, right there on the corner. Not that one, but the one over there.
I was with Leah and I was just about to drop her off from home. Where were we? I don't know. It was just like past week. Anyways, it was dusk, kind of like already dark but the lights still out. And this car parked right behind you, and we pulled up to get gassed. I was like, of course, he chose the one right next to me. Why couldn't you choose the one over there? But then it was like females. Okay. If she's out here, I'll be out here with her. And then this guy just started walking and got her attention and was talking. And she was kind of freaked out a little bit. But she had somebody in the car with her too. Just like I had Leah in the car, just in case, because I would never get gassed when it's late night. It's too scary. Anyways, he just came up to me. And he said something, I just got in the car, because she got into the car right away. And then we just went to our way. I was like, what? Like, why do you come up to like, that's so scary. Especially at that time of day.
Meliza Manalo 50:56
If he was getting questions, just go into the store and ask the clerk or something.
Yeah, see, if somebody did that to me, I would pull out my pepper spray and be like, "Hey, what's up? Is there something I can help you with?" I've done that before.
Meliza Manalo 51:13
Because they can ask a question from afar.
Meliza Manalo 51:15
If they have a legit question, that's fine. But be a little farther away, so we don't feel threatened, you know. And that's sad that we have to say that. Because I'm not trying to say all men are bad. If I see a guy come up to me, that's the first thing I'm going to think of.
Oh, it's not just about men, I would do the same thing to a woman too. If any person come rolling up on me. I remember one time I was at a gas station filling up a U-Haul right before I was about to return it. And this young kid, young punk on a bike came rolling up super-fast and he was like, "Hey, you got any money?" And I came unglued on him. I don't know if I should say in detail because it's a bit explicit. But basically, to the fact that, get the bleep away for me. Right bleeping now. I will bleep you up. Get the bleep out of my face. Cuz I just don’t...
Meliza Manalo 52:12
Uh huh. I'm crazy. I sleep with a bat by my bed. And I sleep with my windows open too. Every night to get my AC a rest. You have to in Sacramento.
Yeah. We rest it at night too.
But I keep fans in front of my windows so that if anybody did try to come in, they'll trip over the fan. But even if, I mean, you know, I mean, it's fight or flight. And what? I'm just gonna stand there while somebody tries to assault me? I mean I feel really weird putting this out into the universe because I feel like it's going to happen. Because I have never been in a situation where somebody rolled up on me with a knife or anything trying to mug me.
Meliza Manalo 52:55
But we live in an area where that happens a lot. It happens all the time.
That's why I'm surprised. It has never happened to me. I think maybe I just give off that vibe. Because I'm so muscular.
You're not a frail little girl.
I'm not. I'm short. I'm a short stack.
Meliza Manalo 53:14
You're not short.
You're not short. You're taller than both of us.
Meliza Manalo 53:18
I'm 5"4". I guess maybe that's average.
Meliza Manalo 53:21
But I can puff my chest up real tall. I think because I just have that natural stature like nobody fucks with me. Oops. (Laughter)
Meliza Manalo 53:33
No. We're always really careful.
Yeah. We have to be.
Meliza Manalo 53:37
Because we have gone through stories.
That's just a part of it. When you're all together when that dude came right into the backyard.
That was insane!
Meliza Manalo 53:47
Leah slept through the whole thing.
Of course, she did.
Meliza Manalo 53:49
She even slept when the police came. She's like she saw some lights. (Laughter)
Yeah. I don't even think I was asleep.
She's like, "Oh, there's lights in my backyard. Weird"
Meliza Manalo 53:58
Yeah. What's that though?
What's this? Is that the scariest? Or is there something scarier? We're kind of going off on a weird tangent here that has nothing to do with love languages.
Meliza Manalo 54:08
But I think y'all are enjoying the ride.
Meliza Manalo 54:11
We did talk about our love languages. Don't touch my face. Do something else for me.
But yours. We didn't say yours. Oh yeah, we did.
I just realized that's your butt.
Meliza Manalo 54:20
Quality time is really important to me.
That's why I thought it was your number one.
That's why we should go swimming after this. Because it'd be a good way to cool off and it's gonna be super-hot by the time we're done with this.
Meliza Manalo 54:33
Oh my God. Yeah.
Do you have a bathing suit?
Mmhmm. You didn't tell me.
Girl. Oh, I'm sorry.
Meliza Manalo 54:37
On the text, I said I was gonna bring mine just in case.
I didn't see it. I worked a double. I was barely even on my phone. And I had my dentist.
Meliza Manalo 54:45
Oh yeah, I forgot.
So, it was kind of hard to catch up. I was just trying to see if you guys were still there.
Meliza Manalo 54:50
I don't know if any of this is interesting. But it's okay. We always go off on the tangent. We're almost at an hour actually. So, I do cut some parts out. So, it's like a full hour.
Meliza Manalo 55:02
Actually no. It'll probably be a full hour.
Well, because we recorded in there too. But that was random.
Meliza Manalo 55:09
I don't know, but we started in here. Because I did the intro in here.
Meliza Manalo 55:14
Yeah. Oh, and what were we saying? Oh, are scary stories.
Yeah, from living in the house.
Meliza Manalo 55:19
So, one of the things, I don't know if Chatty broads or somebody does this. I know one of the podcasts. They do. But they always have the question they have to ask the guests every time.
So, for chatty broads, it's 'If you were on death row, what would your final meal be? Anything you want.'
Meliza Manalo 55:36
So, I want to make up a question. I haven't done it yet.
So, your people can interact.
Meliza Manalo 55:40
Yeah, like what's a good question to ask?
That's actually a really good thing, too. I follow a YouTuber who is like, "If you're still watching this video, leave a comment saying 'this'." Like every episode, they do a random.
Meliza Manalo 55:53
One question to ask every single guest they have. But I don't know, but our scary stories feel like, when we lived together, so we did have that guy...
Jumping the fence?
Meliza Manalo 56:03
Yeah, he was jumping on the fence.
At 3 am.
Meliza Manalo 56:06
Yeah, and our neighbor luckily had a gun on him.
Meliza Manalo 56:12
Yeah. And I was like, thank God for him, honestly. Because he stopped that guy. And nothing happened. No one was shot or anything. It was kind of more of a scare tactic. And then we got the police.
Yeah, the police was in our backyard.
Meliza Manalo 56:28
Yeah. But I guess he's just hopping through people's fences trying to get away.
Didn't y'all yell out to the police though? Through the window? Like, "Hey, he's back. He's over there."
Meliza Manalo 56:37
No, they just showed up and then they went through our backyard.
And we were just watching them wandering.
Meliza Manalo 56:41
Yeah, we were just like in the windows. We kept going through the windows. We would start in the living room then we all went to like...
And we all try to be so quiet.
Meliza Manalo 56:50
Yeah. Just trying to figure out what was happening. Because there's some weird things that happened.
That's a really weird little neighborhood too.
Meliza Manalo 56:57
Yeah, that was some weird stuff.
Right across from that park, all those tweakers.
Meliza Manalo 57:01
Like we had our neighbor. Oh my God, she was crazy. I don't know, Jesus.
She got into so many fights.
Meliza Manalo 57:08
She also had bipolar disorder. But she was also an alcoholic, I think. I'm pretty sure she was an alcoholic.
That ain't no excuse.
Meliza Manalo 57:20
Yeah. There like a private investigator that came to our house asking questions about her. One time she was so drunk. She was just outside her house and she took off her clothes dude.
Oh, you saw her titties?
Meliza Manalo 57:34
Meliza Manalo 57:35
She was just taking it off. I don't understand what was happening. She was just drunk, she took off her clothes.
