There was really fancy this only lots of old. It's like one of those ones. That's and conversely, there forever cordial- and we were just like living the highly s amateur in this screening, and then we got to see a movie that we actually like, I think, both of us as the creditor rolling to begin
with rare, like oh, wait, a second. If this is like one of the many films I see on a weekly basis and enjoy because of the bad necessary like. Oh no, but thank God I think, like ten minutes in those like ok, we're saying yes, John Show is like the friggin, thus actor. Ok, so if you saw heralding Kumar, I'm sure that's not the first credit, he would love us again, although we might be quite proud. It's one of my favorites but John Show is the lead in this movie. Endeavour messing. Is these and other led may be? Firstly, maniac it late? I don't know this is why my favorite things about living in LOS Angeles is or to me the best thing is you can live in LOS Angeles, you can go into a movie, theater watch a movie come out and then accidently run into the person that was in the movie, that's right, and so very soon after I saw heralding Kumar in a theater, I was at
a Starbucks very, very near you and he was walking out as I was walking in. I dont think I think it was the next morning. It wasn't the same day next morning, but it was the next morning and this little like had on he is, so good, looking arrive, it was like he's very star like in real life, so is very exciting. So to see him in like a kind of his own movie or lay as a vehicle for him with super super cool and then and then a thriller and just like crazy twist. At the end, the things we can't tell you about the most interesting part, of course, about its. Essentially we told you hear the ads. You know it's really cool Karen, of course, as a tv writer was three steps ahead of me in Anderson, knowing what the twist was like, I know what it is like and then a distorted guessing, and I was wrong, but
was, it was really fun, but I have to say it usually no brag in most movies I get the twist much quicker than that, and I was really hung out were, and I was just and then when I got it, I was like ok but its that's part of the fun. I never get the twists and I guess so wrong the constantly loudly so splendid movies with me. You know why I think I do. That is because I saw the sixth sense with my friend, and all of them are like. It was so obvious from the beginning, and I was like no wiser now until the very final moment did. I know how great without feeling was when they suddenly, it was revealed in like holy shit, yeah magical watch, it again the S, so that's, ok, searching cancer is in line with one of those dollars where you're like.

subject line on. This is just crazy secret life data got it they guy, it's easy, Georgia, Karen Stephen and animals. On the most recent many sewed, you asked for outrageous stories about secret lives and I decided to share my about ten years ago my dog came home and started telling us about an elderly couple. He met while working as a police officer. He said that he was gonna, help them on their fire and do our jobs and earn some extra money. We thought nothing of this story and in question it about a year or so into my dad helping the couple. He came to us again and said that they had won the lottery and that they were going to give them some of their winnings again see off to us. The couple gave him five thousand dollars and we went on a nice family vacation to Universal Studios in Orlando. Oh my god, fun place to go indication. Around this time my dad started acting very different. He started drinking more and withdrawing more from the family. After we got back from this occasion. He said he won a hunting trip to Canada,
still loon somewhere down he's an avid hunter any showed us a letter from a respected outdoors company detailing the troll. Oh, my god. He goes to Canada for a week or so about a week after he came home, we started getting we're calls on our home phone, a woman kept calling saying she was from his company and asking how he liked his trip. This happened incessantly, oh my god. Finally, after the tenth or eleven call
Oh, my god, I'm the same question we figured out. Something was very wrong. Why toll are crunch straight now we find out that the woman calling was his girlfriend. Aha, all along the elderly couple was code for his, Mr O, my god. His mistress actually won the lottery and paid for our children, random shareholders, real that most insane part the real power its the best, but the so she went to the lottery she's paying for shit, random should around the house and he the dad said he brought the Messina says he brought home from the quote elderly couple. This secret ended the twenty year: marriage, twenty plus your marriage, to my mom day, sexy and question everything: Jordan, oh my god, the law.
Very part like makes that story it's it's because I like what are they? Did? They rob a bank and I got manoeuvre how's the money going to I didn't know Lake Yang your or you're thinking. Does he kill? That old couple like is this this year is one of those things are you like, and then my dad was an evil person like, but they're, trying to figure out a way to busily launder lottery money into the family?

Is a customer service called to make sure you were pleased on your trans, a great way to like drive him crazy, yet right, like that way to infiltrate, and just be like little Oh clearly, maybe an indicator that she was a touch crazy, because if you call anyone more than five times- and I don't care if it's your best friend or your mother, your crazy, like tend to a ten times phone call walk away. Walk away like ever or in a day

I don't want to cut anyone out of my life and I am sure I just picture you rolling your eyes of Lee. Another problem is the time of my airbags and I'm singing along terribly too, like some solid that a start, and then you just automatically resigned the person, even if they're calling to tell you they love you more than others, and that we won the lottery. Yes, okay, this is called secret life. My fellow intern, Tony Slash, Caleb, the sex torsion IST K sex tore out. He said sex tourists. My sorrow, like sex tort, Dennis I ain't extortionist, like extortion as yet it was sacked. Thank you have cut that high carried out loud that really loud, but some basic yeah. I care in Georgia, Stephen Pets,
I have a good story to share and tell you requested secret life stories. This does he just came flying out of my memory bank. It's kind of dark saw avoid going into too much detail when I was nineteen. I, in turn, for my first political campaign, the small Wisconsin town, where I went to college, I was assigned to work for a really cool guy, his Sheridan Office within other staff member, as well as his intern Anthony. We called him tony Tony and I spent a lot of time together by default, doing interim projects making phone calls and knocking doors for our candidate on election day. We got up at five. I am to drive around neighborhoods hanging vote reminders on people's door. Knives Tony was a bright loki, normal high school kid. There are both end of teenagers, who gave up all their free time to work for a cause we believed in, or so I thought months after the election, local and national news lit up with details about Tony Tony's online persona, killer, around November two thousand and seven Tony be in setting up fake facebook.
Hence most notably a pretty flirty teenage girl and tailor tiller male classmates as high swore killer course the boys into sending her sexually explicit content of themselves. Threatened to really restart noodles the photos and videos to the whole school if they didn't follow through with what she had asked and predict simply her demands began to escalate Keller. Made. Some of the victims meet up a Tony in person who claimed you is also being blackmailed. I started working with Tony about eight months in his online scheme. Any continue doing it. The entire time we worked at the campaign Tony's Raina fucked up tear came to an end soon after the election. In the most change your way possible, he did something really stupid at school that human ass a week after
election night. The last time I saw him he email anonymous bomb threat to a school quote as a prank when using the internet and the school library policed, traced. Him traced back to him, which probably took two seconds, because this kid was had never heard of an ip address known, was expelled after that, the victim, foreign police sees this computer to find all the content he collected of his victims in very obviously named file folders, and that one year period Tony had thirty one victim somewhere as young as fifteen, and at least seven had been sexually assaulted by him was so the parties agreed was that he would have them me up with him and be like I'm. I'm also victim and kill said we have to do this or she's gonna expose us, so that was how he had got them to hook up snack, locking and say yes but it is a desert it. Ok,
when he was arrested in two thousand and nine. His case became the first big national story about sexual ex extortion online and launch the terms extortion into the national conversation. Well, I received a letter from his attorney sometime after he was arrested, asking if I would serve as a character witness when I with him, he seemed like such a regular unremarkable dude. I probably would have forgotten about over the years. I almost I could go back in time and see if there was something off about him that I miss, but he has produced a sociopath. Could live two different lives like no baby, oh yeah, anyway, there's no way in Hell. I was going to defend his ass in court. I don't want to end and in a bummer note, so here's a fun backed by the same campaign. Remember I mentioned in training for a really cool guy. We cross

Like high school, also that that story makes me think that movie tickled did you watch the documentary globally enemies, it's a similar, but it will take on a larger scale, thing of of acts, of extorting people and manipulating them, and that's the whole thing about putting things like on video on picture and sending them on the internet.

Yes, unlike the arena, makes me so glad that we didn't have fucking internet. My spoke as I would have done something very stupid. Of course, semi we had internet, but we didn't.

See. This is secret life. Roommate addition, yes, dear Karen Georgia, Stephen and part of pets, I would have an absolutely insane secret life story about a previous were made of mine. Who will call this remit Kristen Chris, I met through a college programme and became fast friends and twenty fourteen after semester, we became roommates with another girl. We were friends with, and things were great would have considered her my best friend so much so that I would have asked you to be a bridesmaid in my wedding
anyways. After a year of living together, we graduated and decided to move to a new city together, we both our jobs and our profession at different locations. We built a faint, separate friend groups, but this is where things started getting weird. I met her friends for the first time in August and they were super nice and friendly with me, but then the next time I was around them in September. They all gave me the cold shoulder. I couldn't really shake that feeling that I done something wrong but thought, maybe I just wasn't as close with them ass. She was fast forward. A few months of mine, unchristian friendship had totally diminished. She made plans to take me out for my birthday, but the morning of cancelled due to period cramps Anders but was disappointed. I felt like I done something wrong, unknowingly and was being punished for it. I tried to bring it up a few times, but she just brushed it off and pretended everything was fine. Eventually, I just accepted that our friendship was falling apart in you're twenty seventeen. She ended up in the air for some mental health issues. I met up with her and her friends at the hospital and they proceeded to ask me why I'm there and
Do you think your presence here is going to help her mental health, I'm sure, I asked them stunned. What they mean and their responses, don't you think you're break up as a little too much for her with right. Now, that's right. Ladies. She had told these girls that we were dating back in August unbeknownst to me. Furthermore, in an effort to end her lie, she told them we broke up, hence the cold shoulder for a month and it all began to make sense that she wouldn't hang out with me in public. I wasn't invited to her birthday party in my house why and she unfollow man social media, while they were still got all that stuff was done in an effort to cover her lies. Not only that, but her new friend group showed me all of our quote: break up tests tat after she was released from the hospital we editor
and she had no remorse or explanation for her lies. Needless to say, we are no longer roommates, her friends. Thank you for all. You do me and my not pathological, liar friends, love your show and can't wait to see you in the land. I say sexy and don't get scammed by your roommate Harriet. I have some questions. I want to know how her friends reacted like the girls friends branded when she was like when she is Leanna that is alive. Well, I think the key part there, though, is that she ended up in the hospital for mental health issue. Maybe everybody went oh This is a little shakier than like. We thought, like everything, got on alike, questionable, ground sure, but yeah only ease that Muslim and so bewildering. My ruins immediately yelling at her, everyone's mad at you, like yeah, mean deal at for no reason can be going crazy wreck. What happened? What went wrong, this is how to get at it. I can't read the name thing, but
Karen Georgia's even in various animals, this finnish listening to many so eighty three, where you ask for secret life, reveals and my friends haven't begging me to send the story, and so here we go back in the seventies, my parents were in a bowling leaning over the years.

As part of it and one night, my dad and his friend, SAM or at the alley when the frameworks in acting very animated, he shakes my daddy dad's hand and puts an arm round salmon, says them something along the lines of Higgins.

Alyssa PS, my dad like to note that it was the plane. The speedy following Gacy and not the FBI, crazy

There are always very open and honest at twelve years old, my mom and I were sitting in the basement, and I started asking some questions about two pictures in my baby book. I have something attached to my head and I'm being held my nurse. I asked why I had that my mom replied that they were running tests and then I asked what kind and she responded to see if you had drugs in your system, why? The heck would I have drugs in my system and my mom said because you were not born in a hospital, so many thoughts are running through my mind and then my mom proceeds. To tell me my story: oh my fucking got on November twenty fifth nineteen. Eighty seven in Calgary Alberta, two young boys, were skipping school and took a route through a parking lot. The boys fourteen and fifteen stop to look at.
Cool car when one of the boys heard a soft cry of a baby. He looked down to find what he thought at first was a doll but was, in fact a real baby inside of a garbage bag. Sticking out. One of the boys picked me up and ran over and both ran towards an older gentlemen who helped me get inside to a warm place. The police said that if it had been an hour later, it would have been much sadder situation and, yes, that little baby they found is me. I was placed into foster care in my neck now mom and dad became my foster parents at nine days old. They legally adopted me on my mom's birthday. May second, the following year my face was Oliver the newspapers and on tv and was a huge, storing, Calgary might out at the time as a journalist, and he was actually covering my story. The social services people thought what a better place to hide this baby from the media, then, with someone in the media, no one at my dad's job knew that, while covering this crazy story, he had the little baby at home. I love it. I was also dubbed Mary Olympia. Dough has a lip Olympia because the Calgary Olympics are happening in just a few months. Now, if you're wondering why my parents waited so me the story, it was because a darker told them that it would make me up if they told me when I was younger, anyways stay sexy and don't abandoned babies Tiana, oh my god, I'm going to curb that's the best there,
