[00:00:38] Tommy Jackett: [00:00:38] hi. Hey guys.
[00:00:40] GB: [00:00:40] Welcome to the show.
[00:00:42] Tommy Jackett: [00:00:42] Thanks for having me. I will correct you there. I'm a flogger and I'm the cofounder.
[00:00:50] GB: [00:00:50] Yeah. I didn't do my research.
[00:00:54] What's happening, Tony, we got you on the show because you had the last week off. Not really good. Two days off. [00:01:00] Yes. Four shows
[00:01:02] Tommy Jackett: [00:01:02] you take two, two days off at this company and people will say you've been away for a week. Um, what have we created here?
[00:01:09] Grace Peris: [00:01:09] It's
[00:01:10] Mr. 97: [00:01:10] also, George. George is also on the hunt to find you a new job as well.
[00:01:15] GB: [00:01:15] Tell me him. He doesn't know about that. Now
[00:01:17] Tommy Jackett: [00:01:17] I have no idea what you're talking about. What's going on.
[00:01:21] Mr. 97: [00:01:21] Wow. No, it's not too much of a spoiler, but George put a plan together last week. Uh, couldn't actually be played on the show, uh, just in case. It actually got taken down, but he went up and did a few prank calls around to fitness first
[00:01:38] Tommy Jackett: [00:01:38] and
[00:01:40] Mr. 97: [00:01:40] seven 11, and also, uh,
[00:01:43] GB: [00:01:43] seven, seven channel seven.
[00:01:46] Tommy Jackett: [00:01:46] Yeah, hated it all. It was
[00:01:48] Grace Peris: [00:01:48] a
[00:01:50] Mr. 97: [00:01:50] asking if they have any jobs going or if ultimate sprint car is going to be airing
[00:01:57] Grace Peris: [00:01:57] renewed
[00:01:58] Tommy Jackett: [00:01:58] for another season.
[00:02:00] [00:02:00] GB: [00:02:00] Yeah. So I did those calls and I was hoping to play it out on the daily talk show. It was kind of funny, but then we didn't get permission or I didn't get permission from the people to play it out.
[00:02:11] So it's just a, it can be an internal laugh.
[00:02:15] Tommy Jackett: [00:02:15] Why wise called my two days off could have been a redundancy and everyone's gone. Thanks to
[00:02:21] Mr. 97: [00:02:21] your lawsuit. Yeah.
[00:02:24] GB: [00:02:24] How was your two days off? Anyway, Tommy, what'd you get up to
[00:02:27] Tommy Jackett: [00:02:27] is great mate. Um, you know, just, uh, Took a day to unwind and then the next day built a shed and ruin the final two days.
[00:02:36] Cause I was so tired, so well spent, well spent.
[00:02:41] GB: [00:02:41] We've all got our backwards hats on, by the way. We should, we should mention that. Yeah. That's a Tommy jacket special.
[00:02:47] Tommy Jackett: [00:02:47] Well, Josh does it now. So people might, might think it's Josh. True. I'm happy. I'm happy to share it with the baby.
[00:02:55] GB: [00:02:55] That's mine by the way.
[00:02:56] Grace Peris: [00:02:56] Neither am I.
[00:02:58] Tommy Jackett: [00:02:58] There was a time though. You, you [00:03:00] go, I mean, I'm a 32 year old father and you could look at mine and say, put your fucking hat forward. Yeah, you're all down, but I remember wearing it backwards and I was like, felt a bit insecure. Yeah. It's probably the law, one of the, really to feel that I remember the feeling of being insecure.
[00:03:19] I mean, maybe you still experience it, but like
[00:03:22] Grace Peris: [00:03:22] I do it all the time.
[00:03:23] Tommy Jackett: [00:03:23] All the time. Yeah. Remember it was heightened when you were younger, like these, when this was, these were new feelings. Now you kind of get used to being a bit insecure, get a pimple. You're like, Oh fuck. Everyone's looking at my face. So you get a cold sore, but you end up being able to deal with it.
[00:03:37] Like. Yeah, but, but I remember the hat backwards feeling insecure and then I got over it. So here I am.
[00:03:45] Mr. 97: [00:03:45] When do your cut off ages
[00:03:47] Tommy Jackett: [00:03:47] for hat backwards? Yeah. 16.
[00:03:51] Grace Peris: [00:03:51] We're all passing by day.
[00:03:53] Tommy Jackett: [00:03:53] Absolutely. Absolutely.
[00:03:56] Mr. 97: [00:03:56] Do you reckon you're going to be the guy though when you're like 50 years old to be rocking your hat [00:04:00] backwards?
[00:04:00] Tommy Jackett: [00:04:00] Absolutely. I'll probably grow a man, but at that point as well, it would just be silver.
[00:04:07] Grace Peris: [00:04:07] Don't look like
[00:04:08] Tommy Jackett: [00:04:08] we, like he's got crazy hair day, but now it's just my fucking gray hair, man.
[00:04:13] GB: [00:04:13] Awesome. Other things in school where you were insecure, like there was the most ridiculous things. Yeah. I've
[00:04:18] Jess Lucas: [00:04:18] got a good one.
[00:04:20] GB: [00:04:20] Yeah, here we go.
[00:04:21] Jess Lucas: [00:04:21] Grace. You'll I don't know if you will actually, um, we girls you slip roll their skirt. Yes. And so if you ever had a super long skirt, um, yeah, I mean, yeah, because you would roll it so many times that it was some
[00:04:34] Grace Peris: [00:04:34] people's it would be like up at the front or up at the back and it'd be all on even.
[00:04:38] So you'd be like, Oh, I got to roll your skirt differently. I never even had like different techniques on how to do it properly.
[00:04:43] Tommy Jackett: [00:04:43] Yeah. Yeah. Classic. Yeah. This shoe like shoes. Oh, having dumb shoe bags, you having a dumb bag instead of yeah. CA Caribbean CA um, what was the carabiner? There was like a, it's like a clip.
[00:04:57] It's a little split for rock. There was another [00:05:00] thing. Look it up. Saves character.
[00:05:05] sorry. Sorry. Nice. Is a cohosting
[00:05:11] Grace Peris: [00:05:11] just like you and your flight,
[00:05:13] GB: [00:05:13] having your backpack down really low.
[00:05:15] Tommy Jackett: [00:05:15] Oh, you're a bit
[00:05:17] GB: [00:05:17] I reckon for me in about year. Nine or 10, it changed and it became, now you have it at really high.
[00:05:24] Tommy Jackett: [00:05:24] Yes. Graffiti, like if people were into art and doing, you know, I mean, I try to sugarcoat it with art, but they were doing vandalism.
[00:05:33] Um, but no, that was a thing that was a scene thing. Like you up real high, really real high yet.
[00:05:39] Mr. 97: [00:05:39] Anyone ever do the double straps,

[00:05:53] Grace Peris: [00:05:53] Yeah, you did.
[00:05:59] Jess Lucas: [00:05:59] When you [00:06:00] textbooks are real heavy.
[00:06:00] Mr. 97: [00:06:00] Yeah. Yeah. In the, in the school, the last day of school where you get to take all your textbooks time, that's where your market.
[00:06:06] Tommy Jackett: [00:06:06] Yeah. That's why he's so smart though. So
[00:06:10] GB: [00:06:10] see, I didn't even have, have a locker at school. Like I just would rock like seven textbooks in my backpack and break my back
[00:06:17] Grace Peris: [00:06:17] really.
[00:06:18] GB: [00:06:18] And you'd always have to buy, like, I'd tell I'm like, I need all of them brand new, like getting second hand ones. And in primary school, when you had to get, we got like a list of things to get it's like you need Texas or pens or whatever, go to big w for school and just get everything just like made a new pencil case, need 64 pack of Texas.
[00:06:41] Grace Peris: [00:06:41] And then I used to like individually label H tech. Print out little like grace Paris, and then take that over.

[00:08:47] Tommy Jackett: [00:08:47] When we're in Barcelona,
[00:08:49] Grace Peris: [00:08:49] we were on a
[00:08:49] Tommy Jackett: [00:08:49] train trains, all that sort of thing. When traveling love it.
[00:08:53] Grace Peris: [00:08:53] When I'm at home, not into it Serrano
[00:08:56] GB: [00:08:56] in Italy, uh,
[00:08:59] Grace Peris: [00:08:59] like a [00:09:00] PCA
[00:09:00] Tommy Jackett: [00:09:00] lean glazey.
[00:09:01] Grace Peris: [00:09:01] Uh, your NOCCA is Scalia Italiana. No,
[00:09:10] Tommy Jackett: [00:09:10] absolutely not.
[00:09:12] GB: [00:09:12] I mean, here's, here's some news which I didn't realize because Josh talks about his traveling all the time and brags about how many countries he's been to tell me you went on a. Big trip with Amy for your honeymoon.
[00:09:26] Tommy Jackett: [00:09:26] You haven't
[00:09:27] GB: [00:09:27] really talked about where'd you go?
[00:09:29] Tommy Jackett: [00:09:29] Well, it's a seven part blog series that you can watch on YouTube.
[00:09:33] So I'll direct you there and no, no, no. Um, but honestly there is a blog series of it. Um, we started in Paris, flew in there and had a couple of nights. In Patty, which was awesome. Amy was pregnant. I gotta tell you she was six or seven weeks pregnant when we left. And so it was, uh, you know, Amy's staple was, uh, orange [00:10:00] juice and, um, like.
[00:10:02] Jets or Ritz, whichever state you're from crackers, which helped with making you feel like. Yeah. And so, um, with those, we would, we walked the streets of petty for a couple of days before we went to Israel and then we went to, yeah, we went to, um, let's I mean, contrast from Paris, going to. Is it, the middle East is, is Israel classes in middle East?
[00:10:27] Yeah. Well, it's very dusty and there's a lot of cats, but there's a lot of history. And great food. And so like the sh schnitzel, the M O like the schwannomas and we, we went to places like the dead sea, which was a couple of hours outside of, uh, where, where we, um, television. It was so hot that it was like forties.
[00:10:51] It was really, but we went to like some of these places, the history. Like, if you think about this is what I love about traveling. You can [00:11:00] walk around Melbourne. It's like a couple of hundred years old. You go to Paris, a door looks 500 years old. It's like, there's just nothing, nothing like it in Australia.
[00:11:10] GB: [00:11:10] Isn't that weird.
[00:11:11] Tommy Jackett: [00:11:11] And then you go to even like imagined we didn't go there, but like the wailing wall, like Jerusalem. Oh yeah. That is like Jerusalem, but it's like, Jesus, Jesus was walking around there.
[00:11:25] Jess Lucas: [00:11:25] Is he saying that right?

[00:11:28] Tommy Jackett: [00:11:28] Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Jerusalem. Are written say
[00:11:33] Jess Lucas: [00:11:33] that. So weirdly
[00:11:36] Mr. 97: [00:11:36] it could be, it could be the local
[00:11:37] Tommy Jackett: [00:11:37] pronunciations
[00:11:39] Jess Lucas: [00:11:39] Nancy,
[00:11:42] Tommy Jackett: [00:11:42] and then we flew from there to, uh, what was it?
[00:11:46] Grace. Mykonos.

[00:12:08] Tommy Jackett: [00:12:08] Oh, I
[00:12:08] Mr. 97: [00:12:08] never had that great love milk guy route.
[00:12:11] Tommy Jackett: [00:12:11] but I can go into anything. What's a milk error route,
[00:12:15] Grace Peris: [00:12:15] you know, it's like an oval. Oh
[00:12:20] Mr. 97: [00:12:20] yeah, yeah, yeah. That's
[00:12:21] Tommy Jackett: [00:12:21] actually usually the biscuit left in the tray that no one wins.
[00:12:25] Grace Peris: [00:12:25] You have two babies don't they like dip it in milk.
[00:12:28] Mr. 97: [00:12:28] It's actually what you make. 'em rumbles out of rumbles rum
[00:12:32] Tommy Jackett: [00:12:32] hall. Yes. You put them
[00:12:34] Jess Lucas: [00:12:34] in your pronunciation?
[00:12:37] Mr. 97: [00:12:37] Is it a rumble? Rumble,
[00:12:39] GB: [00:12:39] rumble.
[00:12:40] Mr. 97: [00:12:40] Okay. It could be a chocolate rumble.
[00:12:43] Tommy Jackett: [00:12:43] Ramble. Yeah. That's probably a different whole foods. You get the mail Jerusalem.
[00:12:52] GB: [00:12:52] Speaking of trains though, uh, Josh mentioned that he, he loves going and trains overseas and not in Australia. Hmm. I've got to be of an idea [00:13:00] pitch for Jess to sort out. Um, you guys, you know the gun. Yeah. It's like the longest rail line in Australia from
[00:13:09] Tommy Jackett: [00:13:09] the guts
[00:13:10] Mr. 97: [00:13:10] through the middle. Yeah.
[00:13:11] Tommy Jackett: [00:13:11] Yeah. Team.
[00:13:12] GB: [00:13:12] Heck how about a team trip on the gun?
[00:13:16] Up the center of Australia since we can't fly overseas.
[00:13:19] Tommy Jackett: [00:13:19] Yeah.
[00:13:19] GB: [00:13:19] I thought it'd be great. If there'd be heaps of fun, looked into it, you can get like deluxe cabins. The problem is they're like $6,000 a head
[00:13:28] Tommy Jackett: [00:13:28] for a three day trip.
[00:13:30] Jess Lucas: [00:13:30] What's your thoughts on the internet connection then
[00:13:33] Tommy Jackett: [00:13:33] fiber.
[00:13:34] Mr. 97: [00:13:34] Yeah, no fiber, but I wonder, I
[00:13:36] Tommy Jackett: [00:13:36] wonder surely
[00:13:37] GB: [00:13:37] for J something
[00:13:39] Mr. 97: [00:13:39] the train would surely have internet.
[00:13:41] Tommy Jackett: [00:13:41] I have wifi. I'd have to have a little bit. Um, I just, I had a, when I was a PT train, this lady who her life was just going on holidays, other than training with me. And she went on the gun. Noisy. She had nothing good to say about it really.
[00:13:57] Grace Peris: [00:13:57] It's the one that goes across. If that one [00:14:00] goes up
[00:14:01] Tommy Jackett: [00:14:01] or down or one that
[00:14:03] Grace Peris: [00:14:03] goes across
[00:14:04] GB: [00:14:04] from good point
[00:14:06] Grace Peris: [00:14:06] or am I just,
[00:14:08] Tommy Jackett: [00:14:08] I can't tell, says to look it up otherwise.
[00:14:12] Grace Peris: [00:14:12] Nice. Look it up. I'm looking at the
[00:14:14] GB: [00:14:14] train line.
[00:14:16] Tommy Jackett: [00:14:16] I think we've gone. Might just like comes down through. It
[00:14:20] GB: [00:14:20] does look like it'd get old quite quickly. Like, it's just, you're seeing this,
[00:14:25] Mr. 97: [00:14:25] you're seeing the same thing all the time. Aren't you? It's really a fine dining.
[00:14:29] GB: [00:14:29] Yeah. And imagine if you were on there with like real shit people.
[00:14:33] Tommy Jackett: [00:14:33] Well, you can, you can tell it's going to be 70 plus like yes, but she's great. My friend did Antartica um, he did. How do you say it? And tock, tock, tick tock. And then tie it together and tie it to that one.
[00:14:48] Mr. 97: [00:14:48] It's the Indian Pacific that goes from Perth to Sydney.
[00:14:51] Tommy Jackett: [00:14:51] Okay. Um, but he went on a, like a 25 day cruise and you get to go stand [00:15:00] on the Northern part of the, the, the, uh, whatever it is.
[00:15:05] Yeah. You literally, you go into land, but it was with. It was 65 plus, and he had the best time of his life, really, you know, bar, just the oldies, just loving it. So I reckon, yeah. Do you know Amy actually went on this, um, like a bus about over in Europe and she. Got to it. And she's like, what's why,
[00:15:29] Grace Peris: [00:15:29] why is everyone all?
[00:15:31] Tommy Jackett: [00:15:31] what have we chosen? And she chose a tour that had just old people, but she absolutely loved it. So I'm all for it. You know, you guys are ages, but I'm not
[00:15:42] Grace Peris: [00:15:42] so chatty and great. And then just shout you drinks. Okay.
[00:15:47] Mr. 97: [00:15:47] Speaking
[00:15:47] Tommy Jackett: [00:15:47] from experience
[00:15:49] Grace Peris: [00:15:49] one night in Valon.
[00:15:52] GB: [00:15:52] So grace, you and Mesa looking up nomads list.
[00:15:55] Um, How's it going, [00:16:00] right? I'm
[00:16:01] Grace Peris: [00:16:01] not sure yet where we looked at Italy the other day. Cause I was on Instagram and saw this really nice farmhouse in Tuscany. So we started looking at place in Tuscany, but that's all dreaming and daydreaming at the moment. Isn't it? Yeah.
[00:16:15] GB: [00:16:15] Where have you been.
[00:16:17] Grace Peris: [00:16:17] Uh,
[00:16:18] Tommy Jackett: [00:16:18] today or,
[00:16:21] Grace Peris: [00:16:21] um, so I went from the bedroom to the lounge.
[00:16:27] Um, I'm going to answer that question.
[00:16:30] GB: [00:16:30] Which international trips have you been on?
[00:16:32] Grace Peris: [00:16:32] Um, I've done your, uh, faint Japan and done central America and a bit of America. Great. So yeah. That's fine.
[00:16:45] GB: [00:16:45] What was your favorite?
[00:16:46] Grace Peris: [00:16:46] Um, I love your firm. I love London, so I really want to go back there and I really want to pick just as Brian about living in London, but we offer
[00:16:56] Jess Lucas: [00:16:56] a lot of take Mason there.
[00:16:58] Mr. 97: [00:16:58] Hang on channel.
[00:17:02] [00:17:00] Grace Peris: [00:17:02] Tommy's like, Oh wait, we'll take this off air, Jess.
[00:17:09] Jess Lucas: [00:17:09] No, that's great. I think you should do it. Yeah, for sure.
[00:17:13] Mr. 97: [00:17:13] Really expensive though.
[00:17:15] Jess Lucas: [00:17:15] No, it's relative. It wasn't too bad. Get a good job. You'll be fine.
[00:17:21] Grace Peris: [00:17:21] What was the, um, what was the, um, choice of going to Israel, Tommy?
[00:17:26] Tommy Jackett: [00:17:26] Pick their friend's wedding was there, but it's good because like I'd never would have chosen to go there.
[00:17:32] But then the experience of it was awesome. Like, I think I'd go back to go to the J word, which I won't say, sorry, I'll get crucified.
[00:17:45] yeah. I'd love to go back there and check out that and yeah, but I wouldn't have gone there. So like our peak swore where Greece, Italy, and Paris, cause you had to fly in some way. [00:18:00] Um, but yeah, it's nice. I mean, that's the thing it's maybe it's like to get someone to choose for you where you should go, that you wouldn't normally
[00:18:08] Grace Peris: [00:18:08] what's the thing.
[00:18:09] Cause you pick the places you like or you think you're like, yeah. And then you miss out on all those cool experiences.
[00:18:14] Tommy Jackett: [00:18:14] I would never choose. I don't think to go to Japan. Um, but, but I'm Georgie boy. I know. You'd love. Japanese culture. I love the food. So I mean, and I love snowboarding so I could imagine it would be great, but I just, for some reason, if I have the option, I'll be going to Europe or America,
[00:18:34] GB: [00:18:34] real
[00:18:35] Mr. 97: [00:18:35] festival skate trips, by the way.
[00:18:36] GB: [00:18:36] Yeah. Japan. Yeah. Well, that's also like, it is affordable as well. You know, we got the Jetstar deal, so it's like $400 return
[00:18:45] Tommy Jackett: [00:18:45] rests, so true. Yeah. It's awkward. Isn't it sad? Just all these huge airlines have done a lot of them. Yeah.
[00:18:56] Mr. 97: [00:18:56] Yeah.
[00:18:57] Tommy Jackett: [00:18:57] Are they like
[00:18:58] Jess Lucas: [00:18:58] legend still around [00:19:00] they going be here hanging on. Yeah.
[00:19:03] Um, Jetstar, Quantis. What
[00:19:05] GB: [00:19:05] do you reckon is going to happen? Like the flight is going to be really expensive. Come Christmas, or are they going to be
[00:19:11] Tommy Jackett: [00:19:11] shape?
[00:19:11] Mr. 97: [00:19:11] Not surely shape.
[00:19:13] Grace Peris: [00:19:13] I know, I know in WWI, they're doing really cheap flats up North, like to Broome from Perth where usually it's cheaper to fly to Bali,
[00:19:21] Jess Lucas: [00:19:21] just cause I want people to get out and
[00:19:22] Grace Peris: [00:19:22] explore the state.
[00:19:23] Jess Lucas: [00:19:23] So
[00:19:24] Grace Peris: [00:19:24] they might do that.
[00:19:25] Tommy Jackett: [00:19:25] Well, hopefully the like government money, if they are getting any, is helping not push the flight costs, you know, astronomical. And so my friends got returned to Byron at Christmas time for, I think it was like 300 bucks. Oh, you have to isolate. Well, they, I don't think they're counting on that.
[00:19:46] I don't think they're counting on it. Not, not being the same. They just went and booked what it is now. Yeah. I mean, it's cheap enough, like for the family to go,
[00:19:55] Grace Peris: [00:19:55] alright,
[00:19:55] GB: [00:19:55] I might have
[00:19:56] Tommy Jackett: [00:19:56] to do that.
[00:19:57] GB: [00:19:57] Uh, well, when Josh was traveling on his own, his [00:20:00] big four month Europe trip, you guys ran a segment called word of the day, uh, which hasn't.
[00:20:07] You haven't really brought that back since this week, while Pete was filling in for you, Tommy, uh, Josh brought up a word that none of us had had heard before.
[00:20:19] Tommy Jackett: [00:20:19] What's happening. What's going on guys? It's weekend dancer. When I was a kid, I didn't have eyebrows
[00:20:26] Grace Peris: [00:20:26] as a fun fact.
[00:20:27] Tommy Jackett: [00:20:27] Really? What do you mean?
[00:20:29] Grace Peris: [00:20:29] Just didn't have eyebrows.
[00:20:31] Tommy Jackett: [00:20:31] I'll put up a photo on Instagram just for a very long time. I never had an eyebrows.
[00:20:35] Grace Peris: [00:20:35] One of the few times
[00:20:37] Tommy Jackett: [00:20:37] that I prayed
[00:20:39] Grace Peris: [00:20:39] to God was pleased. God give me pubes because I had no,
[00:20:46] Tommy Jackett: [00:20:46] no hair on my
[00:20:47] Grace Peris: [00:20:47] chest or anything. And now I'm a pretty hirsute guy.
[00:20:51] Tommy Jackett: [00:20:51] I'm sorry, Harry. Only a hairy person would know it.
[00:20:58] Grace Peris: [00:20:58] Have you heard
[00:20:58] Mr. 97: [00:20:58] of it, TJ?
[00:20:59] Tommy Jackett: [00:20:59] I'm [00:21:00] sorry, Harry. That it's actually overgrown and I haven't heard, I don't know anything now. Cause I'm sorry, Harry. Don't the opposite. Why cute a it, did you look it up? Did you confirm. Yeah, correct. It's Harry.
[00:21:13] Mr. 97: [00:21:13] Yeah, it means Harry.
[00:21:15] Tommy Jackett: [00:21:15] I mean, there's words that just they're unnecessary. It's and that's one of them just say, Harry,
[00:21:23] Mr. 97: [00:21:23] it's a real flat, like just what are you thinking?
[00:21:26] Bringing that out? Like it's a, it's a real, real flex on just being like, yeah, no, I know my words.
[00:21:33] Tommy Jackett: [00:21:33] I mean, it's only said by the guy that had to pray for pubes.
[00:21:39] Hey, that was something to be insecure about as a young boy having underarm hair or pubes. Seriously. Yeah. Yeah.
[00:21:49] Mr. 97: [00:21:49] I don't think I went through that stage. What
[00:21:52] Tommy Jackett: [00:21:52] did you come out?
[00:21:53] Mr. 97: [00:21:53] We still
[00:21:58] felt [00:22:00] insecure about. Under I'm here or pubes
[00:22:02] Tommy Jackett: [00:22:02] where you were, you and your mates talking about it though?
[00:22:05] Mr. 97: [00:22:05] No,
[00:22:05] Tommy Jackett: [00:22:05] not really. There's the problem. I mean, it's not the problem. There's this solution that have mites that don't talk about their pubic kit. And so when you have a, you know, when you have a bit showing tea with you and your buddies, what do you think is going to happen?
[00:22:20] Right. Look how small.
[00:22:25] Grace Peris: [00:22:25] I don't understand why the bitch showing
[00:22:27] Jess Lucas: [00:22:27] between guys like it's like girls are going around going, what about you, Gracie?
[00:22:32] Tommy Jackett: [00:22:32] What about, what about, I mean, breasts, are you. If, I mean, the conversation is teenagers is like, if he got some, do you not, you know, they develop it, whatever. It's like the same as I think that would probably be the closest.
[00:22:46] Forgot I
[00:22:48] Jess Lucas: [00:22:48] had that conversation.
[00:22:49] Grace Peris: [00:22:49] Yeah. We never really discussed it. Kind of just, you know, we've got him now.
[00:22:57] Tommy Jackett: [00:22:57] I'm not defending, you know, the pube [00:23:00] debate, but I will defend it. Yeah, I will.
[00:23:04] GB: [00:23:04] Yeah, it was in, it was in payee mainly like as soon as you finish PE go into the change rooms, take your shirt off. I didn't get under I'm here for
[00:23:11] Tommy Jackett: [00:23:11] ages.
[00:23:15] GB: [00:23:15] And I still don't even have that, that much, really very non hairy guy.
[00:23:20] Tommy Jackett: [00:23:20] Were you praying for your Mustang?
[00:23:22] GB: [00:23:22] Yeah, this is as much as I can get. When did you get Harry TJ?
[00:23:27] Tommy Jackett: [00:23:27] My thanks for asking Aurecon, like you, your seven started to sort of come through pretty steadily. And then, um, I remember having Andrew I'm here, maybe grade six, starting to.
[00:23:41] Sort of sprout and then, um, But like my chest hair. Thanks for asking again. It's um, by the time I'd hit 19, it was like still not that, not that prominent get to 25. It's just all downhill from there. [00:24:00] Get to 32 and I could survive a blizzard with no top on it's. Like it's bizarre. It's like you. You are preparing for the fucking call,
[00:24:12] Mr. 97: [00:24:12] really?
[00:24:13] So I didn't have chest hair. So did you reckon it's coming?
[00:24:16] Tommy Jackett: [00:24:16] I don't think for you. I don't think for you, I recognize Harry or at your age. Um, but I think, I think you'll get a bit more, I think it will start to slowly grow out. I mean, where the fuck does hair and your ears come from? Get to say, I mean, you've got a, you know, an Afro out the side of your head,
[00:24:32] Mr. 97: [00:24:32] but also how does it, the other question, how does it know when to stop growing or reduce the rate it's growing?
[00:24:38] Because look at your arm here. That's all, as long as your hair hair,
[00:24:40] Tommy Jackett: [00:24:40] Yeah, very true. Um, I don't know the answer
[00:24:45] Grace Peris: [00:24:45] that question
[00:24:47] Tommy Jackett: [00:24:47] maybe because you're wearing tops and maybe there is some kind of like friction, friction. Cause my chest is getting pretty. God damn long.
[00:25:00] [00:24:59] Can I find it now?
[00:25:01] Grace Peris: [00:25:01] Actually I'm, you know how you were talking about what happened in like what you became? Um, if there was like a puke debate between girls, the debate with us was like, when are you shaving your legs? Or like, are you waxing first? That was what we would discuss. On our mum hasn't let me like shake.
[00:25:17] And then I remember I shaved my legs and mom came home and was like, why don't you do that? Like, you don't need to shave your legs.
[00:25:22] Tommy Jackett: [00:25:22] Yeah. Yeah.
[00:25:24] Grace Peris: [00:25:24] You're 11 or 12. I was like 11. And she's like, you don't need to like, what's
[00:25:28] Tommy Jackett: [00:25:28] the, my dad's clean shaven know has been a lot of his life, clean shaven, you know, do the sort of farm and, um, whereas lazy blocks nowadays use the electric shavers on their face like me, but I remember wanting facial hair.
[00:25:44] And so I would use these blue razor, like those old cheap razors and I'd shave my face and it didn't need shaving. It was like saves if he did that. Now it's a bit,
[00:25:59] GB: [00:25:59] a bit of a [00:26:00] mustache.
[00:26:00] Tommy Jackett: [00:26:00] Yeah.
[00:26:01] Mr. 97: [00:26:01] Yeah. Well, I, I said to grace the other day, cause with the masks now, like having, having hair on your. Like around your bead and around your chin hurts on the mask. And so what I decided to do was as soon as I put my mask on, I took it off and was pissed off. And so I went and shaved just my beard and left my mouth.
[00:26:21] And then it came down to grace and was telling her how great my mouth is. I shouldn't say
[00:26:29] Tommy Jackett: [00:26:29] I
[00:26:29] Grace Peris: [00:26:29] was like, look, I was like, what? What's, what have you done to your face? I don't
[00:26:32] Tommy Jackett: [00:26:32] cartel. Sorry,
[00:26:35] Mr. 97: [00:26:35] could we do a team Movember?
[00:26:37] GB: [00:26:37] Oh look. Great idea.
[00:26:38] Mr. 97: [00:26:38] Cause short you've already got one. TJ, you could, you
[00:26:40] GB: [00:26:40] could scratch.
[00:26:42] Tommy Jackett: [00:26:42] Mine would look absolutely disgusting.
[00:26:45] Our doc,
[00:26:45] Mr. 97: [00:26:45] Josh has done it previously.
[00:26:47] Tommy Jackett: [00:26:47] Yeah. He gets a good Mo he's got stuff like he's good. He gets a good one. George is, George has just become George. George. If you shake, shake a George, can you shave it?
[00:27:00] [00:26:59] GB: [00:26:59] Yeah, I actually wouldn't mind.
[00:27:01] Grace Peris: [00:27:01] How long have you grown your mind for.
[00:27:09] GB: [00:27:09] Which is not impressive at all.
[00:27:12] Grace Peris: [00:27:12] Um,
[00:27:13] GB: [00:27:13] yeah. I told the store on the daily talk show the other day, how Hans mum bought me shaving cream for my 21st. And then by the time it was my 25th birthday, I was due for a new cheap look the other day. And I reckon I'm due for another one, which will be my 27th birthday coming up.
[00:27:32] So then hopefully it'll be 28. Yeah. Then seek every six months with an
[00:27:37] Jess Lucas: [00:27:37] annual subscription.
[00:27:38] GB: [00:27:38] Yeah, exactly. Yeah. Maybe I will see what it looks like.
[00:27:43] Tommy Jackett: [00:27:43] Can we get you, could we, for your birthday, buy you a, an experience at Ababa with a cut throat raiser, you know, like the whole sort of get a beer lie back, they get released some sort of get some hot towels in your face.
[00:27:58] Yeah. [00:28:00] I bought one for my brother. This is the problem with vouchers. Never used it. Oh, never fucking used it. I don't buy vouchers. So I'm going to take you there. So I know you use it, George. I love it.
[00:28:12] Mr. 97: [00:28:12] G G you already go to one that you get beer from, right? They give you a beer.
[00:28:18] GB: [00:28:18] Yeah. They give you a beer.
[00:28:19] It's just a, just a barber around the corner. Um, yeah, they give you a bit. I was actually thinking like yesterday or Monday, I was like, Oh, hairdressers are great. I need a
[00:28:29] Tommy Jackett: [00:28:29] haircut.
[00:28:31] GB: [00:28:31] And then this is father, sorry, close Sunday, Monday we close every week.
[00:28:36] Tommy Jackett: [00:28:36] Wow.
[00:28:38] Grace Peris: [00:28:38] Surely open.
[00:28:39] Tommy Jackett: [00:28:39] Yeah. Where I live the street I live in, in Bulleen there's a head dress.
[00:28:43] It like a, it's like a random set of shops in a side street. Uh, Monday night, 8:30 PM. They were still cutting. People were rocking up to get haircuts, um, Tuesday morning. Yeah. The coffee shop around the corner. There's a barber shop or the old Italian bikes that live around here lining up [00:29:00] one person, came over the coffee shop and said, uh, I'm 13 in line.
[00:29:05] And it was 7:30 AM like this, you know? The hairy blokes of bullying boys. Oh yeah. That's crazy. Grace.
[00:29:15] Mr. 97: [00:29:15] Grace. You were saying that I'm Joey Scandi. Sorry. Yeah,
[00:29:19] Grace Peris: [00:29:19] he said that he was open from midnight on Monday. So when they open up, because apparently there was just so many people that. They were trying to get as many people in
[00:29:28] Jess Lucas: [00:29:28] here, but do you trust them?
[00:29:30] Cutting your hair? 1:00 AM. I don't
[00:29:32] GB: [00:29:32] know. Yeah,
[00:29:35] Grace Peris: [00:29:35] but atmosphere,
[00:29:36] Tommy Jackett: [00:29:36] Jess, you've got trust issues. You haven't had a haircut in probably 15 years. Your hair is so long.
[00:29:41] Jess Lucas: [00:29:41] Yeah. Last year that I had a cut loss, but the thing is I want to go. Get my fringe cart because that's too long at the moment. And I want to get ahead.
[00:29:50] I, but I don't want them to cut my ends because they'll be like, I need to take this much off and I'll be like, nah,
[00:29:56] Grace Peris: [00:29:56] but that will be healthy for the hair.
[00:29:57] Jess Lucas: [00:29:57] Surely. No, because this is the issue. [00:30:00] It has never gotten to this point because every time I go to get it cut, they cut that much often. It's always at
[00:30:05] Grace Peris: [00:30:05] that.
[00:30:05] I was the same when I had long hair. I was so. I'm so against anyone cutting my hair. I've had, I'd be upset if they cut that much off.
[00:30:13] Jess Lucas: [00:30:13] Yeah. Cause I've been looking after it. So I haven't really been using like hair straighteners and any heat, especially now that we're in lockdown. Haven't been doing anything to my hair and I've got really good shampoo conditioner just in great neck.
[00:30:26] Tommy Jackett: [00:30:26] So yeah.
[00:30:27] Mr. 97: [00:30:27] What brand? Cause I've like . Yeah, right. Did they have an anti tantra fringe by any chance?
[00:30:34] Tommy Jackett: [00:30:34] Oh,
[00:30:35] Jess Lucas: [00:30:35] gee, I was looking on adore beauty there. Yeah.
[00:30:42] it was a scalp thing. So I was going to send it to you
[00:30:45] Tommy Jackett: [00:30:45] to actually
[00:30:46] GB: [00:30:46] send it
[00:30:46] Tommy Jackett: [00:30:46] through.
[00:30:47] Mr. 97: [00:30:47] I'll find a scalp scraper.
[00:30:50] Tommy Jackett: [00:30:50] It was.
[00:30:51] Jess Lucas: [00:30:51] It makes me sick stop. We need to stop talking about it. Yeah,
[00:30:54] Mr. 97: [00:30:54] well, cause I know I have limitations. I've got irritation on my scalp as well.
[00:30:59] Jess Lucas: [00:30:59] It's [00:31:00] not
[00:31:00] Tommy Jackett: [00:31:00] as bad as
[00:31:00] Mr. 97: [00:31:00] George, but it just gets really cheap.
[00:31:02] Tommy Jackett: [00:31:02] I mean, speaking of self conscious, I mean, look at George's body language and completely shuts off.
[00:31:12] Jess Lucas: [00:31:12] for bringing it up,
[00:31:16] Grace Peris: [00:31:16] just so outraged.
[00:31:21] GB: [00:31:21] So another cohost Tommy was mr. Hamish, Blake. He, they did a marathon episode. This one, it was an Aaron 40 or something like that. Um, and your obviously known as the fun guy in, in the joy.
[00:31:39] Tommy Jackett: [00:31:39] Pretty sure Josh called me that
[00:31:42] GB: [00:31:42] I'm joking. Um, and so this is a little bit where. Hey, Mitch is talking about the difference between fun and happiness.
[00:31:50] Tommy Jackett: [00:31:50] Hey, what's going on? How's everyone. I'm Tony jacket. it's fun. And then there's happiness. Happiness is a state sort of like, well, you know, [00:32:00] you're happy when you being a good husband and a good father and a good friend. And you know, you did doing the work that you feel is worthwhile and, and you're being a good community member and you're thinking about others.
[00:32:12] And like, I think those are the. Generally. I mean, I'm massive. Like I don't think being happy is that easy, but it's, you know, that's generally the things that feed into happiness, but then there's having fun. And I would say like, to me, having fun is a fun thing to do, but it's an action. You know, it's a, it's a, it's a verb.
[00:32:28] It's a way to spend your time and your life.
[00:32:31] Mr. 97: [00:32:31] If people just love
[00:32:32] Tommy Jackett: [00:32:32] birdwatching and they go out and they, they, they nail it spotted warbler. They haven't fun for someone like me, like the eye lock, making people
[00:32:40] Mr. 97: [00:32:40] laugh.
[00:32:40] Tommy Jackett: [00:32:40] So you go about your day and you do something that makes people laugh. And I feel fulfilled because that's something that I enjoy doing.
[00:32:48] And we're probably me and the birdwatcher at both having the same amount of fun.
[00:32:52] GB: [00:32:52] So that was pretty interesting. I found. What do you do for fun these days, Tommy?
[00:32:58] Tommy Jackett: [00:32:58] Um, [00:33:00] you w
[00:33:02] GB: [00:33:02] he recently talked about how you, you know, taking Bodhi out with the kite and doing those childlike things.
[00:33:08] Tommy Jackett: [00:33:08] Yeah, that actually requires action is what he said.
[00:33:11] I think it leads to a happy state. I've always felt like when you're in the middle of fun, it's usually quite a happy state. And so, um, the action that I do, like I love. Building fires. I love, you know, out there with Bodie, you know, playing, playing, playing in the garden or playing in, playing at the skate park.
[00:33:35] So it's closely relating to an activity that sort of gets us to the fund state. Um, yeah, Pfizer recently, what we've been sort of just in the backyard, just really, you know, Sitting around it's good. Fat
[00:33:53] GB: [00:33:53] was building the shed fund.
[00:33:54] Tommy Jackett: [00:33:54] Absolutely not. Nor nor was it happy, [00:34:00] but it was, it was okay.
[00:34:04] GB: [00:34:04] What are you using the shed
[00:34:05] Tommy Jackett: [00:34:05] for?
[00:34:07] Party's bedroom. We've sent it back in there. We've got like his bikes. There's a bunch of stuff. That's, you know, it doesn't need to be inside boxes of clothes. The house doesn't have a heap of storage inside. And so there's just, you know, candle equipment from Amy. Um, what else? Yeah, just like bikes and shit.
[00:34:30] It's, it's just whatever, whatever I've never had. My own shed never had my own shed. So I'm discovering too, George, if you can. Work it out your head,
[00:34:42] Mr. 97: [00:34:42] you mentioned, I think Monday's show when you came your first step back. Yeah. The how hard it was to not do anything. It's like we spend all our time trying to optimize our time and then going from that.
[00:34:55] Then the, the difficulty in doing nothing, I feel like I probably do [00:35:00] the same thing. Like doing nothing is harder than doing something. What was that like for you?
[00:35:06] Tommy Jackett: [00:35:06] Yeah, well, it's like speaking to my mate on, um, on the Thursday that I had off and we were talking about switching off from work and you say, I find that really hard.
[00:35:16] And I just said it's because you've become good at you. It's like the habit is. Always working, always be trying to, you know, get shit done. And so what I felt was it's like, The effort lie. The effort ends up being placed in a different direction, which is to do nothing. You know, the action of not checking social media is, is something that you need to get good at.
[00:35:43] And usually it doesn't happen in a couple of days off, but it's like, you see, I was just noticing that it's yeah. Turning off takes as much effort as probably the, it takes more effort than just being. Tapped in [00:36:00] because the tapped in like the social media platforms or just noise is easy just to be pulled in that direction.
[00:36:07] That's how it's sort of built. But when you, when you have to like do nothing, you know, you're, you're the challenge of boredom. It's like boredom is the inability to be alone with your own thoughts. It's like, that's one way I've heard boredom describe and right. And so it's like when you have to confront being with your own thoughts and then how do you sit with that?
[00:36:32] That's the challenge that most people don't want or, you know, avoid because it's painful.
[00:36:38] GB: [00:36:38] Switching off could be getting on Instagram, but then when you're like, yeah, I'm not allowed to do that. I need to switch off.
[00:36:44] Tommy Jackett: [00:36:44] Yeah. Well, is it sweet? I mean, you could say it's switching off, but it's still actively doing something that is distracting you.
[00:36:52] And so strip away those tools and, and don't get me wrong. Switching off could be going on [00:37:00] Instagram if that's what you like, but what about when you switch off from it all? Hmm. You know, like I don't think going on holiday just to taking days off to spend on Instagram is really switching off. Cause it's stimulus from external shit going on in the world.
[00:37:17] So how can you switch off the, probably the area that I didn't switch off enough was probably looking at news. So I was like a little junky getting a hit from somewhere. And that was new sites because I wasn't on social media. It's um, You know, treat myself
[00:37:33] GB: [00:37:33] well with the, with fun. I feel like big meaty company.
[00:37:37] Um, I mean, you guys like everyone thrives at what they do best. And it just turns out that all the things that we do best we enjoy and we're having fun with it. And I think that you guys put so much effort into making sure the team does the thing that they love. Like for instance, you know, like you love.
[00:37:57] Making videos. And [00:38:00] so you're out there making things. Yes. Josh loves doing SEO stuff and making sure the web it's great and, you know, always improving things and. Mason loves finding new processes about stuff wrong.
[00:38:14] Tommy Jackett: [00:38:14] He loves gray smite
[00:38:20] GB: [00:38:20] discovering processes, and then teaching the team. And, and Jess is like, you know, she loves doing pitches, pitch decks, coming up with content, um, you know, appearing on heaps of podcasts. And that's what, that's what I love about being here. It's like, Yeah, I love cutting snippets of stuff and finding, connecting dots and creating stories from stuff that you guys have done.
[00:38:45] And yeah, so it's, it's turning our work. Into the fun stuff.
[00:38:51] Tommy Jackett: [00:38:51] Is this leading to a huge montage? Cause if it's not,
[00:38:55] GB: [00:38:55] no, it's not. That would be good though.
[00:39:00] [00:39:00] Tommy Jackett: [00:39:00] Crescendo. And he's a look back at yeah.
[00:39:04] Jess Lucas: [00:39:04] Doing their best work,
[00:39:06] Tommy Jackett: [00:39:06] having fun.
[00:39:07] GB: [00:39:07] No, it's just a bit of a monologue for me.
[00:39:09] Tommy Jackett: [00:39:09] I love it. I love it. I listened to last week's episode.
[00:39:13] Sorry to sort of jump in George. I know you're probably going somewhere with it all. I hope you are. Um, we'll have to speak later about this, um, last week with, uh, crystal Andrews. You guys did such a fucking great job. Just, yeah. I was thinking grace, you needed a podcast with crystal. I was thinking you're asking great questions.
[00:39:33] You to just, yes. You know, sort of a bit yin and yang, but very curious. And everyone else, just question asking and the banter between you, you guys, that was solid. I listened to a show with you five more, so more than just, you know, I'd like, like to listen to more of that. Well done. Thank you.
[00:39:54] GB: [00:39:54] Yeah, no, that's, that's really nice.
[00:39:59] Grace Peris: [00:39:59] Um,
[00:40:00] [00:40:00] GB: [00:40:00] Now it's time for a big montage. Now it's not really.
[00:40:04] Tommy Jackett: [00:40:04] Can you have like a break, the glass montage just in case anyone ever says that you've got like some on hand on hand? No, no context montage about nothing. It's just, that's a good thing.
[00:40:19] GB: [00:40:19] I think what I was trying to say is that you guys have done a great job in creating a fun environment for us to work.
[00:40:23] And, uh, and by doing good work, we are happy. I'm happy at least.
[00:40:32] But then you also talk about Tommy, like the business side of things, fueling the creative, you know, like you have to like the pain of doing all the accounts and that sort of stuff just gets you fired up to, to create these little videos.
[00:40:47] Tommy Jackett: [00:40:47] Hmm. Well, I think it's probably a illusion or Mirage that you can say, you know, the, the, the you're looking ahead and you're like, Oh, if only I didn't have any of [00:41:00] this shit to ever do, but then like how you, how you become or what you become from having to do all the, the shit or the stuff that's not necessarily.
[00:41:10] Yeah, where your interest lies. It's like, yeah, that's the pain that gets you to the place of happiness or fulfillment is from that slugging away at the journey. So that's where I think, in fact, if you just, maybe as you get on further in the journey, when you have done more, it's like, maybe you've then earned it.
[00:41:33] But early days, if you just got it handed to, I dunno how much you end up. Um, respecting it all or even doing it. So he's just like, he's all this time and go it's like, maybe you don't have enough as Josh Janssen says friction creates traction
[00:41:54] Mr. 97: [00:41:54] trash without friction.
[00:41:55] Tommy Jackett: [00:41:55] Yeah, that's it. There's no distraction without friction, which I love.
[00:42:00] [00:42:00] I'm sure he stole it from somewhere else, but it's a great one. There's no friction without traction track. Is that wrong?
[00:42:07] Mr. 97: [00:42:07] No, there's no trash without friction.
[00:42:09] Tommy Jackett: [00:42:09] Yeah. So you're not gripping without any of that sort of pain of sort of trying to get your tires sunk into the ground. Real . Race car,
[00:42:24] Mr. 97: [00:42:24] go and get it. You don't get that. That's okay.
[00:42:26] Tommy Jackett: [00:42:26] This has got cupcake delivery. If that's not fun at this company, I don't know what else
[00:42:31] Mr. 97: [00:42:31] is.
[00:42:31] Grace Peris: [00:42:31] Yeah.
[00:42:33] GB: [00:42:33] Well, speaking of food actually. When you were on the, when you were off the show, of course, Josh took that opportunity to make one of the whole weekend banters about food chat pretty
[00:42:43] Tommy Jackett: [00:42:43] much.
[00:42:46] GB: [00:42:46] Um, Jim what's was the cohost for this one and there was also Tali and Jess on the show, what's happening, guys. What's going
[00:42:54] Tommy Jackett: [00:42:54] on?
[00:42:57] GB: [00:42:57] you've been
[00:42:58] Grace Peris: [00:42:58] posting some great almond
[00:42:59] Tommy Jackett: [00:42:59] croissants. [00:43:00] They're probably.
[00:43:01] Grace Peris: [00:43:01] Yeah,
[00:43:02] Jess Lucas: [00:43:02] I like a big, big chunk of watermelon way going Bray. It's my favorite thing ever.
[00:43:07] Tommy Jackett: [00:43:07] And so is quince. It's just a fruit at this point.
[00:43:10] Is this what we know about Queens
[00:43:12] Jess Lucas: [00:43:12] yellow? What
[00:43:13] Tommy Jackett: [00:43:13] the hell
[00:43:14] Jess Lucas: [00:43:14] guys are quinces yellow, big bowl of chips and aioli. And am I right? Yes. You're not wrong.
[00:43:22] Tommy Jackett: [00:43:22] You're not a sweet
[00:43:23] Grace Peris: [00:43:23] person. You're not a, I just not what I'm drinking
[00:43:26] Jess Lucas: [00:43:26] wine.
[00:43:27] Grace Peris: [00:43:27] If he's have a, um,
[00:43:29] Tommy Jackett: [00:43:29] has, should I say there, Jess
[00:43:30] Grace Peris: [00:43:30] has or have, has.
[00:43:33] Tommy Jackett: [00:43:33] As
[00:43:34] Grace Peris: [00:43:34] Dan Murphy's has.
[00:43:36] Tommy Jackett: [00:43:36] Fuck
[00:43:36] Grace Peris: [00:43:36] it doesn't sound right, but I'll go with it at Dan Murphy's has chocolate coated almonds
[00:43:43] Tommy Jackett: [00:43:43] because I'm new to drinking. Embry has started saying, Oh, like you probably shouldn't have, you need to stop saying I'm new to drinking.
[00:43:54] Yeah. So.
[00:43:56] GB: [00:43:56] Yeah, a bit of, a bit of food chat there,
[00:43:58] Tommy Jackett: [00:43:58] always.
[00:44:00] [00:44:00] Mr. 97: [00:44:00] How are you going with your, um, with your abstaining from
[00:44:04] Tommy Jackett: [00:44:04] alcohol? Oh yeah. I mean, um, had a few moments where I would laugh, you know, love of bloody red wine and cheese board, but, um, no, I mean it's once I'm into it, I'm into it. I don't know how long it's been since I've stopped drinking, but it's been months, months, and months.
[00:44:21] GB: [00:44:21] I've seen recently. Oh, here she is. She's back with her cupcakes. I had a month out a month off the
[00:44:27] Tommy Jackett: [00:44:27] pice. Did you how'd you like, it was easy.
[00:44:32] GB: [00:44:32] It was great. Like, I actually loved it. Um, and I still am pretty much, like I've only had one glass of champagne. I had one sparkling on the weekend when Dan, uh, announced some changes.
[00:44:43] Tommy Jackett: [00:44:43] Really?
[00:44:43] Mr. 97: [00:44:43] You have a little celebration, it
[00:44:44] GB: [00:44:44] wasn't a celebration, but that was the only glass I had. But yeah, for the last like month or so,
[00:44:52] Tommy Jackett: [00:44:52] um, choice. What was the choice for, why did you decide to do that a month off?
[00:44:58] GB: [00:44:58] Well, Uh,
[00:44:59] Tommy Jackett: [00:44:59] just [00:45:00] because like,
[00:45:01] GB: [00:45:01] when I'm feeling rubbish on a set on a Sunday or a Saturday, even I just get so anxious about the week just going like, Oh my God, like Monday mornings coming on a Monday and Tuesday, like big days.
[00:45:13] Yeah. Just, I just can't like, I just don't want to have to deal with that, that feeling of not being a hundred present.
[00:45:20] Tommy Jackett: [00:45:20] Yeah.
[00:45:20] GB: [00:45:20] And so since not drinking, like just waking up on a Monday, feeling fired up for the week. And it's just been so much better and it's just, yeah, I love I've loved it
[00:45:32] Tommy Jackett: [00:45:32] either. Continue it, or, yeah, I
[00:45:35] GB: [00:45:35] think I'll continue it for like, definitely just turning it back a lot.
[00:45:39] Like, I can't be. Can't be written off on a Sunday anymore, you know?
[00:45:45] Mr. 97: [00:45:45] Well, I mean, I, I noticed the same thing, but it's on like a, probably like a Friday. So like by, by the time Friday night comes around, like it's, I'm exhausted
[00:45:55] Tommy Jackett: [00:45:55] and it's having on the
[00:45:57] Mr. 97: [00:45:57] drink gives me [00:46:00] energy. And I mean, I'm only drinking gin, but the gin.
[00:46:04] Yeah. I just feel really, like, I feel much better and much more energized when I have the drink, as opposed to just, just crashing on a Friday. And I don't know how it's, that's not a super healthy thing that you want to do, but then there is that sort of thing of like, do you give yourself the leeway to go and do that?
[00:46:23] Tommy Jackett: [00:46:23] I mean, if it works for you, if it, if it, um, I think if you, if there's no pro, if you don't identify a problem, Within you, your drinking habits. It's um, I mean, even if you do have a problem, you don't identify a problem. It's hard to see the problem, even if other people are pointing it out. So it's like you have to, it's such a personal journey of does it actually work for me?
[00:46:50] And I guess most people. If you looked at it, it doesn't work for you. The byproduct of that big night out usually [00:47:00] is some sort of, you know, anxious or whatever state that it puts sends you to. But then yeah, it's like, all right, can I, it was from not drinking. Observe more mental ill, healthy myself, then.
[00:47:17] Then ever it's like, because you have to, you can easily see it's like a bandaid or, you know, like a mask. Yeah. Nama of, of how you feel. And so tired on a Friday, if you have had a big week for me, if I'm like, Oh fuck. And have that, then it's like, since it's going to do what it's meant to do, it's like relax you and feel, you know, feel good for that moment.
[00:47:40] But what if you had to, what if you had to confront those times where. You do feel like that with, with nothing. And so, because I don't think it necessarily gets rid of the problem. It masks that. And so I dunno, there's, there's nothing wrong with not drinking. [00:48:00] Like I think there's like, there's nothing but benefits for not, no, that's all about
[00:48:06] Grace Peris: [00:48:06] moderation.
[00:48:07] Isn't it like, you know, having one on a Friday after you're exhausted from the week, as opposed to having. A huge night out and waking up yesterday morning, hung over, feeling sick, you know, feeling anxious, all those types of things.
[00:48:21] Tommy Jackett: [00:48:21] And some people, the reality is some people can drink, have one and not think about doing more.
[00:48:26] I want to launch. I want to fucking just.
[00:48:32] Let's get us lab chips.
[00:48:39] yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. What
[00:48:44] Mr. 97: [00:48:44] about, what about you, Jess? Like you. I mean, you have that four, five week old, red wine.
[00:48:51] Tommy Jackett: [00:48:51] I barely
[00:48:51] Jess Lucas: [00:48:51] drank any of that. So I'm still saying that I haven't drank for like, almost what it'd be this way. It could be 10 weeks. Um, yeah, but I [00:49:00] do this as well. I go for long periods of time without drinking and then I'll get back into it.
[00:49:04] Cause I said it before I have to abstain from things. Otherwise I can't do moderation for some reason I'm an all in or nothing person.
[00:49:13] Grace Peris: [00:49:13] It also helps because it's like, Being an ice. So you're not spin, not socializing.
[00:49:17] Jess Lucas: [00:49:17] Yeah. Like, but no, the issue grace was that the first lockdown, I was probably drinking more by myself, which is not something I've ever done at home on zoom.
[00:49:29] And then you'd get off soon. You're like, cool. Now I'm drunk by myself. And then I have the same thing as UDB. I get really like anxious the day after. And then I feel like I've wasted my day and I hate that as well. So, um, Yeah, definitely. While we're in lockdown, I'll continue to probably not drink. Um, but yeah, I love a glass of red.
[00:49:50] I love this. Is that, is this bad to say I love drinking. Like I love and not out. Like, I love going to a winery and day drinking and like, I'm never going to cut it out of my life entirely, [00:50:00] but I do need to have a better relationship with this party. So I don't do it every weekend. Just for the sake of it.
[00:50:06] Tommy Jackett: [00:50:06] Well, the rule rules are important. It's like, yeah. When there's nothing there that you're sticking to, what do you do? And so the all or nothing is a rule. Yes or no. It's like, it makes it very easy. And that's where it becomes tricky is when you, I think I'm similar to you, Jess. It's like, I'm either doing it or I'm not, but then when I'm doing it, I'll be like, mate, let's go for a beer.
[00:50:29] Come on. That'd be fun, but it's not isn't. And then it's not even. I can't, I can't get fucked up. I've got to wake up in the morning, be with my kid and my wife. And so it's like, I'm not even doing that back in the day. I used to do that every weekend, multiple times, but it's um, yeah, it's, it's, it's bizarre, but it's a personal battle that everyone has to, you know, has, or will go through.
[00:50:54] I think
[00:50:54] Jess Lucas: [00:50:54] I'm sorry that
[00:50:57] Tommy Jackett: [00:50:57] black
[00:50:57] Jess Lucas: [00:50:57] are we O'Kane on having a dream.
[00:51:02] [00:51:00] Tommy Jackett: [00:51:02] Roe.
[00:51:03] Jess Lucas: [00:51:03] I haven't
[00:51:03] Tommy Jackett: [00:51:03] drank with grace yet.
[00:51:05] Jess Lucas: [00:51:05] I barely drank with the rest of you

[00:51:48] Grace Peris: [00:51:48] salsa,
[00:51:50] Tommy Jackett: [00:51:50] tomato salsa.
[00:51:53] Jess Lucas: [00:51:53] That summer drink of 20, 20, 20, 21. Um, it's literally just
[00:51:58] Mr. 97: [00:51:58] who dictates that?

[00:52:04] Tommy Jackett: [00:52:04] Yeah. Well, Mason, there is actually a, usually a drink of the summer.
[00:52:08] Like the squishy martinis with Aperol. What else is there?
[00:52:13] Mr. 97: [00:52:13] They just, they just reusing them every like every few years. That's on the cycle.
[00:52:19] Tommy Jackett: [00:52:19] Yeah. Well, I'll tell you what surely. Yeah. Your bombs, yoga bombs are not coming back into fashion. I would be one day,
[00:52:25] Mr. 97: [00:52:25] but shit, they don't make him new types of alcohol.
[00:52:28] Are they?
[00:52:29] Tommy Jackett: [00:52:29] No, but it's
[00:52:30] Mr. 97: [00:52:30] making you Aperol spritz. That's like a whole
[00:52:32] Grace Peris: [00:52:32] flavor
[00:52:33] Mr. 97: [00:52:33] name, flavor, and
[00:52:34] Tommy Jackett: [00:52:34] mix. You're right. It's just like, what is becoming what's in Vogue? It's like fashion comes back in, you know,
[00:52:43] Jess Lucas: [00:52:43] this is true. So Renaissance beside I had a, um, The resurgence is that that's right. Uh, I remember drinking it when I was living in London and then I came back and no one was really drinking.
[00:52:56] And then they started drinking at like the, um, [00:53:00] the copper burgs and things
[00:53:01] Tommy Jackett: [00:53:01] like that. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah. I remember when site cider actually just sort of. Landed in, in Australia. It'd probably been here for years, but yeah, it was really big and it started off really sweet before it got dry and, and, and you know, less tastier.
[00:53:18] Yeah. I like it. Yeah. I liked, I liked dry drowning
[00:53:23] Grace Peris: [00:53:23] things with like Aperol, spritz and stuff. When they come back into fashion. In some way it's because it also like transports you to being in Europe in summer, you know, like sitting in on a beach in Italy or an, a Piatsa somewhere, just
[00:53:37] Jess Lucas: [00:53:37] sit in an Afro.
[00:53:39] Grace Peris: [00:53:39] Yeah.
