Oh man! What a fabulous guest and episode!!!!! (Oh no I revealed my psychosis) I loved how open Beth was. I also identify as an addict of all things unhealthy, not just an alcoholic (not to brag or anything). And I think Keith met his grammar and punctuation soulmate. Looking forward to seeing Beth on KATG again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m pretty good with most decisions but there are certain areas where I can’t.
Mostly it’s one.
It’s the question “ should we cook something at home or should we get takeout and if so where”

You might think that’s an easy one. For me, it’s often system overload. Too many pros and cons.
(what’s faster, is it wasteful?, what do I want, one kid likes this, the other something else, the one place only takes cash, do I have to go to the ATM before, will the tomatoes in my kitchen be still ok tomorrow, could there be Eggs in the food and I’m allergic, it doesn’t look like it but I had problems before…..) Mr Apia knows about my dilemma so this is something he has mostly to decide.

I didnít know that but I remembered that he was a problematic right wing person. With this Iím like Keith. I donít forget. You did something really bad? ( rape, hate crimes, regular violent crimes, being a right wing nut job) Apia will remember.

Wikipedia:
In a 2017 interview with Billboard, he made positive remarks about President Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump, and Donald Trump Jr.; they had worked together on The Celebrity Apprentice in 2011.[133] In an interview with the Daily Mail in 2021, he called Greta Thunberg "brainwashed" due to her views on climate change.[134]

He was critical of restrictions brought about in reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic, telling the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in August 2021, "I hug people in the middle of COVID ... I understood stopping life for a little while, but they cannot continue to stop life because of politics." He described a person who called for people on airplanes to wear masks as a "Nazi" and "power-mad". Meat Loaf then said: "If I die, I die, but I’m not going to be controlled."[135][136]

Well you got your wish:

I liked that Beth fully enjoyed all of Chemda's jokes.

She was really a great fit for the show.

Im not an addict that’s something I can say for sure, because I get bored using a substance too often.
For example, I was a smoker of cigarettes at parties for example, it never transitioned into my normal life. I stopped it because I got bored by it. I noticed that i didn’t enjoy it anymore.


But I can be an obsessive person in other aspects of my life.

I feel like around how perfect she is, Apia is trying to tell us she killed a person or 3.

I wish I had the genetic makeup or whatever combination of circumstances that makes the difference between becoming addicted to substances and not. Iíve always been jealous of people like you who can indulge in moderation and not become addicted. I got hooked on cigarettes about 30 years ago and have been fighting with them ever since. Iíve managed to ďquitĒ a couple times but after about a year or two I go back to it. Iíve quit drinking alcohol, but have to make that decision every time the urge comes on. I like what Beth said being freed from the addiction. Freedom is the goal.
