Welcome to another episode of If You’re Like Me. On this thrill packed episode, Rome announces his new award for general awesomeness (or at least many years of participation). Also, Joel has discovered a great way to make lawncare more fun: using fire.

In these days of quarantine, we are all turning into Rome–listening to old music and staying home.
“An internal monologue, also called self-talk, inner speech, inner discourse or internal discourse, is a person’s inner voice which provides a running verbal monologue of thoughts while they are conscious.” Do you have an internal monologue? Rome Maynard does, and the voice in his head makes sarcastic comments that he sometimes cannot repeat. Joel doesn’t think he has an internal monologue, at least not every day.
We also discuss typewriter, assembling furniture from boxes, and dressing for success when working from home.
Rome talks about a silent German film called Die Große Wette. Does it still exist?
Today Rome is excited because it is Smallcreep’s Day, a holiday that, as far as our researchers could determine, is only celebrated at Rome’s house. Listen to find out more about what Smallcreep’s Day is, and why you should join the celebration.
Filling in for Rome Maynard this week are Shawn Tabor and Jim Lomas, and this week we are all about Disney+. If you aren’t watching The Mandalorian, you should be, and we talk about some of the other great discoveries we have made in the content on Disney+.
