    I have really enjoyed watching your video podcasts, and I love to see how well you two get along. At one point, Sean, you put your arm around Melissa’s shoulders, and I just went “Ahhhhh…”

    I think my favorite part of this episode was Melissa’s reaction and exclamation at the very end. :-)

  44. sarahlou Says:

  50. Sarah Says:

    I’m just catching up… 2 things… 1st I LOVE Rhumplestilskein!! Will it ever be available in your shop? 2nd, I was glad to hear Sean talk about the new Socom 4… my husband still plays the 1st or 2nd (I forget) and always talks about how much he isn’t a fan of the newer ones. I’m glad to hear the original company is making this next one, I might pre-order it for his birthday gift :D
