Episode 013: Emoji throwdown and book discussion

In this episode, we discuss re-watching Gilmore Girls, favorite books, phone habits, emoji preferences, and gift giving ideas.

Show notes:

  • Congratulations to Alex, the winner of our signed copy of The Walled City by Ryan Graudin!
  • Like the other girls who grew up watching the CW, we've started watching Gilmore Girls again now that it's on Netflix.
  • Pumpkin snickerdoodles are an annual tradition for me
  • Did you watch House? Do you think it would still be good if you watched it now?

Literary chat

Phone habits

  • Are you a phone person?
  • Call or text?
  • This Phone Tips video from Tripp and Tyler makes some funny points about phone etiquette:


  • I say a picture is worth a thousand words. Maggie sees emojis as a sign of our culture's regression. We need you to weigh in. Are you emoji pro or con?
  • Maybe Maggie would prefer the Nick Offerman emoji style:

Gift giving

  • Be thoughtful before the gift giving occasion to build ideas
  • Give experiences
  • Don't try too hard to be original

How do you choose a new books, and which ones do you recommend to us? Where do you fall on the pressing issue of emoji use? What gift giving tips do you have? Let us know in the comments or on Instagram or Twitter.
