AJ & McCall 12/20/18

Yesterday was gift giving pet peeves but what about the people that say "Don't get me anything."? What does that really mean? At lunch AJ & McCall were getting their food and someone came in after them and put their jacket on a seat to mark the table, but should they be able to do that? Shouldn't the people that already bought their food have the first rights to the table? It has lead us to the phone, somewhat passive aggressive, game "I'm sorry to break it to you, but..." AJ is gonna be all alone for two weeks and has no clue what to do with himself. Food, chores, responsibilities how does he handle that while his girlfriend is gone? McCall, as a hunter's widow, has some advice for the Debate At 8 but how does your routine change when you're left alone? Millions, yes millions, of gifts have already been returned and there's already a new diet you definitely shouldn't try.

AJ & McCall 12/19/19

Even though the AJ & McCall message has been do you and be nice, there's be so many crazies that it's been hard not to get frustrated. Luckily, McCall has a tip to help us stay calm during the holidays which will be put to the test today. Our front office ladies do amazing, fun things for us ahead of the holidays and deserve a huge shout out, especially because they help us avoid things like a Secret Santa debacle. Could you imagine being a person asking for more gifts from a co-worker and then asking for something well over the limit? Oh, and it gets worse from there! Why is it that such a joyous time that is about the thought and not the things brings out the worst in people? Both AJ & McCall have their share of gift giving headaches for the Debate At 8 and wonder if they're the only ones.

AJ & McCall: Specific Potatoes Debate @8

Everyone loves potatoes and AJ & McCall are no different, but AJ gets a little specific with his taters. After a shopping trip he revealed he only likes specific potatoes for specific dishes (like Russet for mashed or baked) and McCall says he's weird.

AJ & McCall 12/18/18

The weather was very nice this morning, no frost or bad roads, but is that the 'perfect' Christmas? Don't we all want snow for our perfect Christmas? Speaking of Christmas, it's a time of joy and fun but McCall has to vent. Maybe they're first world problems but, on the other hand, perhaps McCall found something to add to her Christmas list. AJ & McCall like potatoes and so does the world, but AJ is a bit more particular about his taters. He only wants specific ones for specific dishes and McCall says he's weird, so for the Debate At 8 is AJ crazy for matching specific dishes to specific potatoes? Despite the fact AJ & McCall gave everyone the heads up about the holiday out date the new term 'Scrouging' has been invented, which means to break up with someone so you don't have to give your significant other a gift.

AJ & McCall 12/17/18

AJ & McCall both messed up things they should know, and got injured in the process. When you go out to eat and grab those after dinner mints what flavor is best? AJ cannot stand it when they're cinnamon instead of peppermint but McCall says he's wrong about that. The internet is at it again, this time trying to argue that a hot dog is a taco. AJ & McCall say no to that for the Debate At 8, but then what is a hot dog? Is it a sandwich? Pita? Can you believe it's officially two weeks from the last day of the year?

AJ & McCall 12/14/18

This is the time of sick and unwell but do you actually call in to work if you're not well? McCall figured out who gets everyone sick in Cache Valley but it isn't AJ. Do you like wrapping presents? Do you do anything special when it comes to wrapping because McCall is weird about it. Yesterday's Debate At 8 was about the best Christmas movies but today it's about changing the perspective. Kevin McCallister's dad, the Grinch and Jack Skellington are not who they seem, but will you agree.

A wedding is supposed to be a happy time right? Where you gather with all those you love and care about to share in a very special day, but for one bridezilla it's about making everything perfect. A post went viral that features a choreographed dance, dance outfit (over $1000), another formal outfit and a trip to Hawaii to a resort for the wedding. Excessive much?

AJ & McCall 12/10/18

The CDC warned us about romaine lettuce and that was an easy avoid but now it's cookie dough. We've always heard that eating raw cookie dough could be dangerous but has it ever happened to anyone? McCall says that it's a flat out myth and it isn't gonna stop AJ from eating cookie dough. Squire Sebastian Senator as a first name, crazy right? A baby shower got cancelled after mom was upset her family made fun of the name. But that doesn't even take the social media cake today because a post has gone viral about a Bridezilla's dress code requirements, along with a dance routine, travel to Hawaii and a present. Now we all agree that's too much so in your dream wedding what would be the stiffest requirement people would have to meet? But it doesn't stop there for the Debate At 8 because this Bridezilla also wants to have a polygraph party! With that kind of coin dished out you can understand people shopping after Christmas to save, but for AJ there used to be some other ways around spending.

Every year we hear be careful starting your car in the winter because someone could steal it, and watch out for thieves who will steal packages from your porch, but does it actually happen.

And Cache Valley is a safer place considering that most people don't lock their cars or doors.

AJ & McCall 12/07/18

A celebrity is afraid of a toilet and can't shower with it open which is just bizarre, but also not the grossest thing in a restaurant. Don't touch the pepper just bring pocket pepper. AJ & McCall were asked for advice and happy to help. If your significant other was laid off but not using their time at home to share the burden with choirs, how would you go about that? How would you want to be asked if you were in that situation. Every year we're told about porch pirates and how things could be taken off your porch, but does it happen? AJ isn't convinced because neither he or McCall has experienced it and Cache Valley seems like a safer place since no one locks anything for the Debate At 8. Sleep walking, sleep talking are all things McCall does but now there's a new thing she should be afraid of...sleep texting!

AJ & McCall 12/06/18

How is it that people have been around so long and we're still just figuring out the 'right' way to do things? Burgers have been around since the 1880's and yet it has come out now that we've been eating them wrong the whole time and they actually need to be upside down. Yesterday, AJ & McCall discovered there's a job called a 'social media sitter' that manage it all for you and post for you. Initially it sounded dumb but now sounds super useful, but that won't be the case for everyone. We're giving you a personal assistant, what would you have them take care of? We're well in to the holiday season and that means traveling to see friends and family, but that can be a headache and for AJ & McCall it is. How do you figure out which family you're visiting for the Debate At 8? A study was done on how many french fries should be in a serving, only bad news can come of this, and the answer was six. That's ridiculous so we're going to ignore that and figure out which cut of fry is the best.

AJ & McCall 12/05/18

Yesterday McCall shared her fear and anxiety about her missing instant pot, but now it has turned to frustration because she has gotten a resolution, but definitely one that she isn't happy about. Good news for McCall, she stumbled upon dating advice she can give. Two guys were debating whether inviting a girl over for a movie is actually inviting her over for a movie. Where is that innocent line? AJ & McCall sort out what's legit and what's "if you know what I mean." Last night AJ & McCall volunteered to be hypnotized and it worked on one of them, but for the Debate At 8 you have the power. What would you have a person remember to do with a code word? Apparently it's winter cleaning because McCall has too many apps, over 170! Can she actually give in and remove some she doesn't need?

AJ & McCall: WiFi Upgrades Debate @8

AJ & McCall 12/04/18

The end of the year means lists and today's is the highest earning YouTubers and the top one is crazy! 22 million dollars to a seven year old kid who reviews toys, seven! McCall is livid today because her package, which is a present for someone else, still hasn't shown up and she hasn't been able to track it. Now she thinks it may be stolen and wants to know if anyone has any experience with this. That instant pot may be gone forever but the one McCall ordered for herself should arrive soon and with WiFi capabilities and how nice would that be to have in your house. We're upgrading our homes for the Debate At 8 so what thing in your house do you wish had WiFi on it? And AJ has a bone to pick with a few of these commercials when it comes to WiFi controls away from home.

Tomorrow is the work Christmas party and the last chance for AJ & McCall it's their last chance to make sure they leave a good impression at the work place for 2018, so they need help. McCall wants advice on what to wear and AJ wants to know if he can leave early because it's a Tuesday. Is anyone else hitting their snooze button more often now that it's colder? McCall has all of the alarms set and hits the snooze button constantly but is she above average when it comes to the time lost? And McCall was the first to buy a present first, but what did she get for AJ? We'll find out for the Debate At 8 but his suspicion is it'll be weird. What weird gifts have you given or received? The great thing about those weird gifts is you can use them for the White Elephant exchange, which we all need to be at the top our game. Best ideas?
