I produce this video for AfterEllen.com but figured, hey, why not spread the love/weirdness? This episode features a cameo from my pal Bashley who reminds us that sometimes even the pretty people are vatos locos forever. You can read her funny ass stuff over at StraightLesbian.com and follow her on Twitter over heeya. Also, Butter Dance.
I’ve been a bad podcaster lately and for that I apologize. Life, ya know? Totally gets in the way a lot of the time. You may ask, “Mia, have you figured out what you want to be when you grow up since you’ve been ‘so busy’ with your time?”. Sadly, the answer is still no but only because there are even more things I want to do now than I did in the past. In fact, I’m pretty sure I can add “Super Sleuth” to possible future professions thanks to my desire to hunt down and kick the shit out of the assholes who have repeatedly used my stolen identity information to open up credit lines in my name regardless of there being fraud flags listed on my social security number. I’m fairly certain I’ve tracked one of the offenders down – now it’s up to the respective fraud agencies to see if they want to go after them.
This has also made me want to speak with someone in the government about doing a better job of protecting consumers. Considering the technology available these days, I find it very hard to believe it’s too difficult for any companies handing out credit to figure out whether someone is using a child’s social security number in order to get a credit card. I also think it’s ridiculous that grocery stores are able to scan your driver’s license to make sure it’s valid and you are of age, but other retailers don’t have the same scanners to ensure someone maxing out the credit card they just applied for is who they say they are. Who do I speak to about this?
Ok, I know, I’ll get off of my soap box for now and just give you the goods you’ve been patiently waiting for. Without further ado, here is week 4 version 3 of the Chubby Jones Couch to 5k Podcast (now brought to you in Soundcloud form, so just click the downward arrow to get it to your desktop):
