Josh Janssen: [00:00:00] Yeah, it's the daily talk show episode 902.
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:08] What is happening? What's going on? JJ. Am I
Josh Janssen: [00:00:11] happy Tuesday, everyone. It is a public holiday here in a year in Melbourne.
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:17] Well, yeah, there's only Melbourne because I mean, Melbourne, I feel like takes the piece. We take a lot of public holidays,
Josh Janssen: [00:00:24] public holidays then, because obviously we have the AFL grand final.
This is a Melbourne cup. Uh, holiday, but surely all the other States are having an equal amount of. Holidays.
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:37] Yeah, it makes sense. I just wrote what state has the most public holidays in Australia? How many holidays does each state have? Australia celebrates seven national public holidays that are recognized in each of the eight States and territories.
However, each state also has its own public holidays that they recognize in their region. So it's like the, um, the grand final day. Is another one that Australia has. Oh, sorry. Melbourne has a state just got around
Josh Janssen: [00:01:06] Victoria.
Tommy Jackett: [00:01:07] Yeah. Yeah. Sorry. Victoria is a state and they, uh, and no one else gets it. And so, I mean, this is one of those ones as well.
Melbourne cup are only in Victoria. Although when I met Amy, she was doing at her work where she, she used to work at an orthodontic clinic. They did a Melbourne cup thing. And so
Josh Janssen: [00:01:28] in new South Wales,
Tommy Jackett: [00:01:30] in new South Wales, I was like fascinate I'm. I'm not even doing anything for
Josh Janssen: [00:01:35] that. What's your, what's your preference?
Public holiday wise. So this is a, this lands on a Tuesday. You can have your Monday, your Friday. What's your perfect public holiday day.
Tommy Jackett: [00:01:46] Oh, as in, are you the option of a Monday or a Friday? Cause they're usually the
Josh Janssen: [00:01:52] ops day, Monday or Friday.
Tommy Jackett: [00:01:55] Um, I reckon I reckon a Monday, there's something about a Sunday, knowing you don't have to do work on the Monday.
Josh Janssen: [00:02:05] feels Friday's good. Fridays are good. And then you have a shorter week as well.
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:10] Great vibe, and a Friday you fired up for the weekend. So, you know, you can start having a bevy at 3:00 PM in the office, and then the weekend starts. You know when you're into it.
Josh Janssen: [00:02:23] I mean, so, I mean, you're, you're not doing bevies at the moment.
What are you going to do?
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:29] to
Josh Janssen: [00:02:29] sound real cool. Don't try and make, uh,
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:36] man I'm too. I'm too self conscious to go out. I've had a pimple on my fucking lip for four weeks.
Josh Janssen: [00:02:41] It's not a
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:44] no, it's not a fucking cultural. Thanks for saying that, mate.
Josh Janssen: [00:02:48] What's
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:49] I'm just, I'm just being silly when I say I'm self-conscious about it, but I'm genuinely need your advice as a guy that I feel is probably had a pimple that's lost for months.
Josh Janssen: [00:03:00] Yeah. Essentially. Probably the ingrown, like the, the neck ingrown, I think stayed for like a few weeks.
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:09] I've just had this thing on corner of my lip. I cannot, like, I was thinking, this is literally, I've had it for weeks, weeks and weeks
Josh Janssen: [00:03:19] because you're, um, you're lacking vitamin C. That's what mom used to always say.
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:24] No, no, no, no, no. Dude, it's not
Josh Janssen: [00:03:26] anything designed. It's not like it's thing. It's a fucking
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:30] pimple that gets passed in it. And I mean, I was watching, I was watching something on TV and I was like, it was like, no, it was, it was a photo up close of an actor. I was like, mentioned what I'd be doing this time.
This would be hell for me right now. It follows this guy getting up close photos of me. It'd be hell
Josh Janssen: [00:03:49] on the skin thing. Uh, is it micro dermabrasion? There's there's, there's a skin thing. Dave Hughes had something done. No, dude, I thought that he, um, I was like, Oh, what's wrong with Dave Hughes? And he's just had a skin treatment.
Have you seen it?
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:05] I thought he'd fallen asleep with foil around his face. Getting that much sunlight that he's faced was about to fall off with how burnt it was. And then I saw this Josh and I, and I heard your partner Brie talking about this. I said, Oh my God, that's that bloody? That's that skin burns
Josh Janssen: [00:04:25] because he'd done it for skin cancer.
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:28] has he,
Josh Janssen: [00:04:29] I don't know. I'm just, I'm just reading the reading.
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:31] It's like a, it's a, um, a tree. I mean, this is now a beauty podcast.
Josh Janssen: [00:04:37] There's a micro dermabrasion. Is that right?
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:39] I think that is something, this is where we need Gemma Watts. But what you're talking about is like a boon to the F like they. But like they peel off a layer of your skin.
Yep. Should we call GMO?
Josh Janssen: [00:04:52] I can tell. I can actually just tell you what it is based on the, um, w we can give Jim a call. Should we give her a call? Hang on. Let me
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:59] see if we get our English is not to be across. The hazy thing as well. Hugely is a comedian radio presenter in Australia. Just a bit of a reset there for him.
Pretty easy. He used to live across the road from him actually in st. Kilda.
Josh Janssen: [00:05:13] That's a good, good bit of info. Do you reckon he says the same thing about you? Oh,
Tommy Jackett: [00:05:18] absolutely not. I met him once with somebody and he forgot me within two seconds.
Josh Janssen: [00:05:23] Okay. Let's sorry. I have connected to that.
Tommy Jackett: [00:05:30] Here we go. BD podcast.
Josh Janssen: [00:05:35] Gemma wants it's, uh, Tommy and Josh from the daily talk show. How are you?
Gemma Watts: [00:05:41] From
Josh Janssen: [00:05:42] the daily talk show the number one podcast in the world.
Gemma Watts: [00:05:49] Sorry. Did you take from the daily show?
Josh Janssen: [00:05:51] Yes. Yeah, it went from the
Tommy Jackett: [00:05:52] daily,
Josh Janssen: [00:05:54] New York times where the daily,
Gemma Watts: [00:05:57] Oh my God. How did you get these numbers?
Tommy Jackett: [00:05:59] Jim jammer? Uh, we're doing a beauty segment and, um, it fell short.
So we needed to call you. Um, I mean, did you say zip me because no, no, no. I need to ask you something personally about my face, but we wanted to, Josh was mentioning David Hughes, the Canadian, have you seen what he did to his face? No.
Gemma Watts: [00:06:21] Do I want to see what he did to his pay?
Josh Janssen: [00:06:24] Like, it's that, um, uh, thing where they laser and it's like square laser thing and they do it and it like your face peels,
Tommy Jackett: [00:06:34] like
Josh Janssen: [00:06:36] Well, do you know, do you know what it's called? It's not like a face peel. It's something else, but
Gemma Watts: [00:06:41] I watched all these
Josh Janssen: [00:06:44] laser resurfacing,
Tommy Jackett: [00:06:45] laser resurfacing. It's kind of like just digging out the bitchumen at the front, then relaying it,
Gemma Watts: [00:06:51] essentially that an equally as glamorous and fun. Um, but there is so many different types of lives of the skin's peeling, basically what they do.
There were different links of the lasers and they get down for that, like into the dermis of the skin and it triggers cell turnover. So the peeling is the top layer of the skin. Basically it's like, imagine a snake shedding its skin. And then you're just left with like fresh baby skin. I've never done the peeling one because it's just black.
Very hectic. And I prefer it like less invasive approach, but there's, I mean, there's a lot of science there. You just look like a psycho for a little while. And
Josh Janssen: [00:07:29] so is that micro dermabrasion or is that something?
Gemma Watts: [00:07:32] No, it's very different. So microdermabrasion is like, you're basically, how do I describe it?
It's almost like, um, Not quite the same as needling, but micro dermabrasion is a form of physical exfoliation. I actually it's super popular, but I hate it. Um, just cause my skin doesn't like it. I think it's just a bit too much, but it's basically just, uh, like a way of deeply exfoliating the skin.
Tommy Jackett: [00:07:58] What about a vampire facial have seen that knocking about what is that?
Gemma Watts: [00:08:03] Yes. Okay. So vampire facials are amazing. There are, there are different versions of it that basically. Imagine that you get, um, like a cut or a scribe and the blood rushes to the surface of the skin. And then the skin heals itself really quickly. This is another way of triggering that cell renewal and that cell turnover turnover.
So basically you're creating a micro injury on the face and then the skin is healing itself. So you end up with healthiest skin
Josh Janssen: [00:08:31] micro injury. I don't need that in my life. I've got enough micro injuries.
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:37] Josh
Gemma Watts: [00:08:39] just how, like most basic, even just using a scrub, it's sort of like, it all falls under the umbrella of like a micro trauma.
Josh Janssen: [00:08:49] And so if, if we think about a sunburn as like a, a microtrauma, how did we know that these things aren't causing skin cancer?
Gemma Watts: [00:09:00] Because you've a rays can get far, far, far deeper into the skin and they cause cellular and DNA damage. So something like, uh, like a short pulse laser, which is what you'd get from a machine.
That's not getting as thought into the scene, nor does it cause DNA damage. So when you get the short version is with the sun, you've got UVA, UVB and UVA. They rise. We don't worry about you based sake. Cause it doesn't actually hit the earth. But if you were say traveling to the sun, then you might have an issue UVA and UVB through travel down to earth.
But, um, you only really get those rays from the sun. So like a laser machine or even something that you use at hardwired habit.
Tommy Jackett: [00:09:46] Uh, one other thing. Do you think the, the, um, conspiracy theory about Melania Trump having a double is real or not just sewing in a real spanner into the works?
Gemma Watts: [00:09:57] Yeah, a hundred percent real
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:01] Oh, it's the best.
Gemma Watts: [00:10:03] It's amazing.
Josh Janssen: [00:10:04] Does she like him more than that? More than the real, the real that millennia.
Gemma Watts: [00:10:10] I mean, I got a lot of strong feelings about the Trump family, the way that I can answer this without putting my own personal bias the
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:19] way look, I didn't want to get too far away from, um, you know, beauty.
But the other thing is I, I, we started the podcast and I was telling Josh that I've had a pimple for like at least three weeks on the corner of my lip. And I can't, I don't know why it keeps coming back. What am I doing wrong? Help me, Gemma Watts.
Gemma Watts: [00:10:36] Potentially your mosque would, have you ever had people in that slip before?
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:41] Well, I mean, in my lifetime, yes, I'm old. Um, but of recent times, no, but it's not
Gemma Watts: [00:10:48] like a common spot for you to be getting it.
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:50] I don't think so. No. I feel like
Gemma Watts: [00:10:53] it's just coming. Hasn't
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:54] left
Gemma Watts: [00:10:56] wax and salycilic on, there will be something in your house with, um, Something acidic. Ideally salycilic acid, basically everything that's going wrong with everyone get at the moment is because of the math.
But. The whole Moscone thing. Isn't just pimples. It can be like rosacea. It can be dryness. It can be dermatitis, basically anything that can go wrong with the skin is going wrong with the skin on it because of the masks, because it's just creating an entirely new environment. Like environmental stresses or what close are much of the damage that happens without skin.
And then you're essentially changing the humidity, the temperature, the amount of Sanya skins, getting all in one hit. So your skin's like what is happening?
Josh Janssen: [00:11:44] It's not great. And finally, this is a, the, uh, Melbourne cup episode. What have you got planned? Like, uh, have you, have you got anything happening at the Watts household?
Gemma Watts: [00:11:54] Well, we can only have two people over Dylan. Bruce, true to form has, um, rationed their friends over the course of the racing carnival. So they had, they had two friends over on Friday. They had, we had two over on Saturday who we normally spend Dobby day with. They had two over yesterday. Um, Monday is a rest day.
And then, um, Tuesday, they've got two more friends coming over. Um, and then on site sale, Saturday, uh, more friends.
Josh Janssen: [00:12:24] Yeah. So nothing nothing's changed. I wonder what the coverage is because there's going to be no. Fashion on the field because there's no people
Gemma Watts: [00:12:31] there really pushing them, the fashions on the front lawn, which I think is a great fun way for people to get involved with the carnival or do I think people are going to do it?
Absolutely not. The whole joy of watching it from home is that you don't have to try it. Yeah. I might pop ahead. I put a headband on, on Darby day, but that really wasn't because of the races. It was just because I. Found it, and I forgot that I had it. And I thought you should put this on your head. Damn.
Josh Janssen: [00:12:57] I mean, I feel like, um, fascinators, uh, your mom's begin the fascinators.
How many fascinators do you reckon she has.
Gemma Watts: [00:13:05] Mom has, I actually can't even put a number on it. Mum's assassinated a person and I'm a hat person. I just think if you, if, if you like up, but this may be more for women, but if there's a reason for me to put a hat on, it's going to be a good day. Cause it means either the sun's out.
Maybe I'm going on a picnic. Maybe it is the races. If you've got a hat on, you're going to have a good time. We're also gonna make a cocktail tomorrow that I had on the weekend. And I'm already desperate to recreate it. I think you would like it, JJ. It was like it was lemon sole Bay, lemon, shallow, a bit of vodka and a bit of Prosecco.
So it was very like hot, almost like a, like eliminate any sort of smoothie, but solution
Tommy Jackett: [00:13:50] take you right back to the Amalfi.
Josh Janssen: [00:13:52] I mean, the thing with the fascinating, these two, like hats versus fascinators.
Tommy Jackett: [00:13:57] More uses for has another hat. Fascinator is a,
Josh Janssen: [00:14:01] this is the thing that like at the facet, having a large collection of fascinators.
Gemma Watts: [00:14:08] You can only wear it to the races, whereas a hat
Josh Janssen: [00:14:11] weddings do people wear fascinators to weddings.
Gemma Watts: [00:14:14] I put a Royal wedding yet to a normal slab wedding. You would look like an absolute.
Josh Janssen: [00:14:22] Okay, good to know. Thank you, Gemma. Anything else happening? How's house hunting going, uh, post lockdown.
Gemma Watts: [00:14:30] I'll I'll say it now. I didn't want to drink that. We beat at auction last week. We did not get the house, but what a rush.
Josh Janssen: [00:14:36] That's exciting. And so were you actually at the auction or did you,
Gemma Watts: [00:14:40] no, that was a zoom auction.
Josh Janssen: [00:14:43] Yeah. And so what's the deal? How does it work?
Gemma Watts: [00:14:49] So you all have to be on mute. There are heaps, you know how at a normal in-person auction, they will just be like random people who want to basically just perv. Yeah. There were, there were 42 people in the zone. Um, I reckon roughly 30 of them had their cameras switched off.
And the auctioneer's like, if you're going to place a bid, pop your camera on. Most of them did not. And then I reckon there were probably six of us that actually placed a bid, but the whole thing was like, take yourself off mute when you're ready to bid the woman that ended up getting the house was so confident.
She did not put herself on mute the whole time she opened the bidding on muted herself, and then just sat back and just let it happen.
Josh Janssen: [00:15:37] Wow. W what were the,
Tommy Jackett: [00:15:38] I mean, the 34 perverts with their
Josh Janssen: [00:15:40] cameras off, what were they.
Tommy Jackett: [00:15:41] Well,
Gemma Watts: [00:15:43] surely the only reason you would go and like have a perv at an auction is so you can walk through the house first, but I don't know that were just hanging out.
Maybe they heard, you know, queen grok was going to, it would have been
Josh Janssen: [00:15:58] great if Hamish Blake came in and said zoom for one,
I feel like that would have been a good one.
Gemma Watts: [00:16:09] Like accidentally popped in and then accidentally bought the house again, like at the block auction
Josh's house and see how it looks and then bought it.
Josh Janssen: [00:16:23] What's happening with it. I was speaking to a Bray was speaking to Hannah who was saying, um, Jordan, who were watching the block. I didn't even know the block is still on. Are you watching it? What's what's that?
Gemma Watts: [00:16:35] No, I've never watched it up.
Josh Janssen: [00:16:41] That's fine.
Yeah. Well, surely they're, um, they're just not doing much, if it, if it was recorded during COVID.
Gemma Watts: [00:16:52] Yeah, I think they had to shut down filming at some point. I'm not even watching the bachelorette, which is just a, who am I? What have I become?
Josh Janssen: [00:17:00] What are you watching?
Gemma Watts: [00:17:02] Uh, not a whole lot. If I'm honest, I took Holly's advice.
And what Emily and Paris, uh, I mean, I'm just sort of, I have to be very, very drunk. Mom's quite enjoying it. I don't, I'm not, I don't understand. Every every person, she made 12 in love with her. She's terrible at her job. She hasn't called it to learn the language. I know a lot of feelings.
Tommy Jackett: [00:17:30] If I can make a horrible, um, suggestion for a film for you and your partner to watch Gemma it's called holiday night.
Gemma Watts: [00:17:39] Oh, yeah, we've actually got that on now. Um, to watch cause I'm, I'm all about, I love Emma Roberts, they just added, um, Emma Roberts in wild child to Netflix, which is great because it's one of the worst films ever. But it's amazing. If that makes sense, you know, there's terrible, terrible films that are so good.
I was looking for it everywhere. And it was only available on Amazon prime. If you get like the fancy person account. No, thank you.
Josh Janssen: [00:18:13] Jack. Ryan, do you know about Jack Ryan? It's great. You got to have on prime or no?
Gemma Watts: [00:18:18] No. Chris does. Sorry. I mean, technically yes.
Tommy Jackett: [00:18:22] Yeah, you did Jack Ryan,
Josh Janssen: [00:18:24] Tommy, Tommy, Tommy,
Gemma Watts: [00:18:27] Tommy
Josh Janssen: [00:18:29] is very into it. It's easy,
Tommy Jackett: [00:18:30] Jack. I'm just annoyed that it's, um, they're filming third season. So it's, you
Josh Janssen: [00:18:35] know, it's a series.
Tommy Jackett: [00:18:37] It's three, three seasons. Oh, they're filming the third season.
Josh Janssen: [00:18:41] Do you think this is coming back?
Gemma Watts: [00:18:44] Do I think the Hills is coming back? Aside from the, um, like the, the Ray brute season that they did this year. Yeah. Well, it just sort of stops
Josh Janssen: [00:18:54] because I was watching it. I was watching it and then it just sort of ended, it didn't feel like a proper season.
Gemma Watts: [00:19:02] What check that I was Whitney port's reaction videos to it. And she was like, I'm only in 30 seconds of this because I'm married and have a child and, um, I'm not causing any drama and the producers will act. Uh, this is not going to be good television.
Tommy Jackett: [00:19:18] Are you, are you into selling sunset
Gemma Watts: [00:19:20] Gemma? Oh yeah. I loved it.
Tommy Jackett: [00:19:24] Mostly
Gemma Watts: [00:19:27] take Quinn. Yeah, well, I just do it like mostly on mute because I liked the houses. Um, but yeah.
Josh Janssen: [00:19:35] Tell me what yeah.
Tommy Jackett: [00:19:38] Different reasons for the senior year,
Gemma Watts: [00:19:41] he, of her being a crazy villain and like, You know, she's this big character, but she's also not a nice person. I feel like it's one thing to be like, she's unapologetically herself, but she also like repeatedly believes all the cast members.
Josh Janssen: [00:19:56] Yeah. I don't get it. I, um, yeah. I saw someone do a post, uh, about like, yeah, it's like check out like her Instastories. And I was like, Oh, I hate that. What? Like, she's just a, such a nasty character. I don't understand how she has finance.
Gemma Watts: [00:20:11] Yeah. Mm, I don't get it. I do not understand it. And she's particularly well-dressed if I'm
Josh Janssen: [00:20:18] a bit tacky, would you say
Gemma Watts: [00:20:24] that? Yeah.
Josh Janssen: [00:20:24] Well, good chat.
Tommy Jackett: [00:20:26] Anyway. Thank
Josh Janssen: [00:20:26] you for answering our beauty questions. That wasn't okay. No, actually
Gemma Watts: [00:20:31] I forgot. Feels like a last time.
Josh Janssen: [00:20:33] It does. Doesn't it. Isn't it crazy talking about lifetime ago? Like 20, 20. It's a bit ridiculous. When you think about. Uh, from January, think about how different it was in January.
Gemma Watts: [00:20:46] It's like crazy
Tommy Jackett: [00:20:48] 58 or nine days until the end of the year. And it was like, what? Late, early March that it all started to happen. Next minute. It's like seven months has gone past and
Josh Janssen: [00:21:01] Christmas didn't feel like it like our Christmas show or even the episode in cannon Creek was like, just happened. We haven't really done anything since that's like, we haven't left the house.
Like if we counted the amount of times we'd left the house since. The Coonan Creek episode for me, it'd be like five times.
Gemma Watts: [00:21:21] I mean, you haven't missed a whole lot. It's crazy. Cause it's like it's the longest year ever, but it's also gone so quickly because there's been nothing to punctuate the year.
There's no like, Oh, we've got this coming up because w we don't.
Josh Janssen: [00:21:36] Yeah
Gemma Watts: [00:21:38] was like, what are you going to do for your birthday jam? And I was like, well, nothing because I just don't know like, who knows what's going to happen
Josh Janssen: [00:21:46] weeks. Surely a park, surely there's some sort of parks.
Gemma Watts: [00:21:49] That's what I'm thinking. God, save the day again.
Who knows? I don't want to get excited about having a pool party.
Josh Janssen: [00:22:00] Yeah. That's very true. And also just know I'm not regretting, like we'll have to give it next year. We'll do it.
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:06] But past COVID.
Josh Janssen: [00:22:08] Yeah, exactly. But it's like, it's seriously. So, um, uh, Bree went to ans color, uh, to get me a new shirt, uh, yesterday.
And, um, everyone's going in, everyone's getting like a few sizes up or whatever, cause just, it's just a reality of, you know, sitting on your ass.
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:28] I mean,
Gemma Watts: [00:22:29] beat.
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:31] So I was just going to say the shirt, she bought your shirt without you trying it on. Yeah.
Gemma Watts: [00:22:36] Yeah.
Josh Janssen: [00:22:37] I mean, you've been dancing though, Jim, so you've probably seen the impact.
Gemma Watts: [00:22:44] Not quite.
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:47] Thanks for thanks Gemma
Josh Janssen: [00:22:48] for answering my call. I
Gemma Watts: [00:22:50] have to get ready to go up in and out. I'm gonna make myself a Bucca.
Josh Janssen: [00:22:55] What are you going to eat? You're going to go. Are you going to talk at taco bell? Taco bell?

Josh Janssen: [00:23:36] catcher mate.
Gemma Watts: [00:23:36] Bye.
Tommy Jackett: [00:23:38] Yep. Jamie wants ladies and gentlemen. Um, Josh, I was just looking up before, before we go.
Um, the, I mean, you've sort of called yourself a geek many times. I feel like Gemma is a
Josh Janssen: [00:23:52] beauty.
Tommy Jackett: [00:23:54] Someone who knows a lot about something. Do you know the origins of the term geek?
Josh Janssen: [00:23:58] No, I don't.
Tommy Jackett: [00:23:59] I mean, you had a business called
Josh Janssen: [00:24:01] Melbourne Melbourne cake.
Tommy Jackett: [00:24:03] Uh, so geek, they use a photo of Albert Einstein. He had a great most dash by the way,
Josh Janssen: [00:24:11] most stars,
Tommy Jackett: [00:24:12] most dash he had a great Mo I blamed stash mustache.
The people whom we consider Gates today are certainly not the same people who we would have labeled geeks in the early 19 hundreds. Back then, the word was used to describe not socially awkward tech savvy individuals, but rather circus sideshow performance. Who bit the head off small living creatures.
This is only in the 1980s that the word began to take on its current meaning. And by the 21st century, it nearly lost its negative connotation altogether.
Josh Janssen: [00:24:50] It has. That's a good fact. That's a good fact. That's a great
Tommy Jackett: [00:24:53] fact. I love him. Words can change over time. I just started one thing. Well, now we're going to use it.
Josh Janssen: [00:24:59] What's uh, one thing you don't see, many of I've noticed it cause your mouse is a little bit noisy. Mouse pads. How many people do mouse pads nowadays? I remember like this as a kid. I don't know why. But we just, we're sorry. You're responsible with mouse. Pads would draw on them. You remember that thing you'd never get in a plane.
The S did you do the answer? That was exactly the three lines, three lines
Tommy Jackett: [00:25:25] connect the dots and put the tips on the top. And bottom
Josh Janssen: [00:25:28] was seen as a bit of it. Like if you had a Primo. Mousepad without any, like, that was just unsafe. You would never say that, but there was also, um, it would appeal to remember you'd have like the blue thing and it would, it would have like a farm and it would always peel off and go shit.
What I mean with
Tommy Jackett: [00:25:45] maybe, maybe that is why. Because they're so shit. I'm sure there is some bespoke business that's doing these mouse pads
Josh Janssen: [00:25:56] we should do.
Tommy Jackett: [00:25:57] Trevor gets
Josh Janssen: [00:25:57] Pam.
Tommy Jackett: [00:25:59] Did you ever get the ones with the gel lump for your wrist?
Josh Janssen: [00:26:04] I remembered it at a client. They had a mouse pad. It was a little bit blokey this place and they had a mouse pad and the, uh, that.
That bulgy bit was a woman's breasts. He says, so I'm
Tommy Jackett: [00:26:19] not, I mean, I wouldn't have one myself, but Jesus.
Josh Janssen: [00:26:21] Yeah. It's a different time. Maybe it made it we'll say it was probably 2007. So probably still, so
Tommy Jackett: [00:26:28] to be making a video for bloody men's
Josh Janssen: [00:26:31] gallery, you'd be surprised. Uh, great. Oh God. Do we have any emails?
Have we got them up?
Tommy Jackett: [00:26:37] Yeah. So we, we got one yesterday. We were talking about how things are changing over in. England and France. And we've got Charlotte who is a Gronk. She's been listening for a little while. She said, happy. End of lockdown. I'm so happy for you there. Great job with COVID. I'm sure she's getting, I mean, she might be hearing the reports unless she's just hearing what we've said on our show.
She said, I wish we could say the same about France, but that's impossible as they're following the laws and thinking. Together. Sorry, I'm just preface reading. Sorry, paraphrasing. Um, it's very different there for, for sure. There is so many more inhabitants in Europe, which makes everything even more complicated and tourism being the first economical income in France.
However you go out of lockdown at the exact same time. We're going back into lockdown again. Not funny actually, but better to laugh. This situation is getting very annoying. Now it's been so long and it feels like it'll never end. When am I going to come back to Melbourne? Again, she has a partner here that she met just before.
I think it was last year before COVID and then she's been wanting to come back. So poor thing, going back into lockdown in France
Josh Janssen: [00:27:52] or shallow. If you come to Melbourne, we'll have a preferred role.
Tommy Jackett: [00:27:56] Yeah, she did school lists on what a professor role means. I'd love to go on a professor role crawl, forget a patrol.
Josh Janssen: [00:28:03] Josh, a chocolate eclair crawl.
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:08] Yeah. Yeah. Chocolate eclair crawl.
