So Long and Farewell From Dr. Em and Princess WeeWee

It’s a sad, sad day but it’s time for Dr. Em and I to say goodbye to everyone. We started this blog because A) we think we’re hilarious B) We have super fun stories to share and most importantly C) we found ourselves with some extra time.
So Long em1
Our funniness and tales haven’t gone anywhere but our time has managed to escape both of us. Silly real life (work, family, homes and school) has squeezed itself into every spare minute. It happens. But rather than disappear into the internet, we want to make sure to say a real goodbye.
So Long whit
Thank you everyone for reading and commenting and making it so much fun to write each of our posts. Hopefully,we’ll be able to come back before too much time So Long weinatorpasses and when that happens you will be the first to know!!!



TaTa For Now!
Dr. Em, Princess WeeWee & The Weinator



So long…Farewell

Dr. Em Proves Her Superiority

I would like to take this opportunity to clear my name...I did not come up with pushups as a Kickstarter reward. That brilliant idea came from my husband. I was under the impression that we'd be splitting up the pushup duties (read: my husband would be responsible for doing all the pushups) but somehow he snuck the word each in there.

So, here are my first 50 pushups and while I did not perform them with zeal of my husband I did complete them without being a whiny baby like Princess WeeWee. I'd like to see how she uses her new muscles to make me pay...now that would make a hilarious video!

Thank you so much to everyone who has supported us this far! Each donation brings us that much closer to making Sandbox: The Movie a reality!

Princess WeeWee Is a Push Up Queen!

Actually, I'm pretty sure I don't even qualify as a push up princess. Dr. Em got sneaky and when I wasn't looking promised all our kickstarter backers 10 push ups from each of us.

If this project wasn't so important and if we didn't seriously need some funding to complete our short film you better believe I would not be sweating on my hardwood floor doing a crazy amount of push ups.

I did a little math the other day and realized that it is quite possible I will be stuck doing 2,400 push ups when we get fully funded!!!

You can too can make me sweat out some push ups by supporting our very worthy short film Sandbox: The Movie

Dr. Em better watch out! I plan on using all those built up muscles to get my revenge for her brilliant push up idea!

The Girls Insist You Get an Update!

jugglingI keep telling Dr. Em and Princess WeeWee to S-L-O-W down; they can’t do everything but they continue to add more projects to their load! I have insisted they not feel guilty about neglecting you all and can only assuage them by giving you all an update on their current going ons.

We're not gone...just a bit distracted

Hey all!

I just wanted to let everyone know...We're not ignoring you. Dr. Em and I are entering a short film in the L.A. Veteran's Film Festival. Needless to say every free moment we have is dedicated to getting this film done before September 1st. I promise to give you all a sneak peek when it's done. In the mean time...stay funny, happy and fabulous!

L.A. Vs. Minnesota Round 2

Here a few more of the differences you’ll find between L.A. and Minnesota…

A typical restaurant encounter

Hostess LAL.A.: Upon entering the restaurant
Hostess: …..
Patron: Um, table for two please.
Hostess: (large sigh) Do you have a reservation?
Patron: This is Chili’s. Do you even take reservations?
Hostess: UGH! Fine. It will be an hour wait.
Patron: Can we just go sit in the bar?
Hostess: Uhhhhhhh… Let me go ask my manager.
Hostess MNMN: Upon entering the restaurant
Hostess: Welcome, welcome! Oh my golly, we are so happy to have you here!
Patron: Table for two please
Hostess: Oh yeah, you betcha! Let me just check here… Oh no! It looks like there will be a little bit of a wait. Oh, I’m so terribly sorry! And here you are looking so super cute in your date top…
Patron: It’s fine. Can we wait in the bar?
Hostess: Oh yeah! Yeah, of course you can! You have the most super time, now, Okay!

L.A. Vs Minnesota

Many of you may know that I grew up in Minnesota, where much of my family, including Princess WeeWee, still live. It is a land of four million people with silly accents, twelve parkas each and a strange hankering for anything covered in cheese. But, I now reside in Los Angeles County, a land of 9.8 million overly tanned surfers and actors who only eat organic cheese if any at all. Seriously night and day. So today, I thought I’d share a little about the differences between my two favorite places.

The Quest

I'm so sorry I haven't been around, dear readers! Summer truly brings out the crazies, so as you can imagine, I have been extra busy. I have also been on a quest to find Malibu's most exclusive shopping excursion - the underwater Target.


I know what you're thinking... "Dr. Em, that's not real. Your stupid  iPhone is playing tricks on you." But that's what they want you to think! I'm so getting a submarine this weekend.

Where Everyone Knows Your Name…But You Kinda Wish They Didn’t: The Final Chapter

Sorry all, I really did mean to be quick with this conclusion but those silly clients of mine insisted I work on their projects instead of writing. They just don’t understand priorities. If your just joining in here’s Part One and Part Two.


So, Betsy and I had found our new oasis and of course had to share it with all our regular happy hour hang out crew. A bit of convincing was required since this new bar did not offer a weekly Meat Raffle (if a quizzical look just crossed your face…you’ve been missing out!) Betsy and I extolled the virtues of a closed in patio with cheap drinks verses the chance to win a pack of pork chops. We were finally able to get the group to agree to check the place out.

Where Everyone Knows Your Name…But You Kinda Wish They Didn’t Part 2

If you missed part one and don’t want to be totally lame by reading completely out of order click here.Bad Boys
Anyway, we had trekked back to the car, I only survived by promising myself this little jaunt would count as my exercise for the next two weeks, and began our hunt for a nearby watering hole. Driving down Lowry Avenue, which still makes me giggle by reminding me of Martin Lawrence in Bad Boys “Cuz, I’m Mike Low-rey”, even though I’d been traversing that road long before the movie came out. The mind can be very odd sometimes. But back to driving on Lowry…

Where Everybody Knows Your Name…But You Kinda Wish They Didn’t Part 1

A few years ago a girlfriend (we’ll call her Betsy) and I decided to check out this super hip joint with a spectacular patio after work. We were pretty jaz247628_lzed about going somewhere new and being adventurous. Normally, we went to the same bar with the same friends, ordered the same drinks and told the same stories. But it was one of the first warm days of the season and we wanted to do something special.

And Then There Was One…Until Another Showed Up!

I have spent the last week embroiled in an epic battle! Fighting a seemingly unstoppable enemy. An enemy that appears out of nowhere and replenishes it’s army in the blink of an eye. The situation became so dire I had to call in reinforcements. Who was this formidable adversary? None other than the cunning, despicable and persistent…

I Have Not Disappeared...But My Sanity Did Take A Leave of Absence

I promise I haven't been avoiding you all. I'm pretty sure I was sucked into the Twilight Zone last week...I'm still shaking off some of the weirdness that enveloped my world for ten days.

It all started with routine request from a consulting client. The client's accountant, Kelly, emailed me last Thursday afternoon asking for a copy of the invoice from a job I did last May. Apparently, their original copy had been misplaced.

Mr BurnsI remember the job from last May well; the management team was creepy and wanted me to "tweak" my findings, which of course I didn't but I'm sure the board of directors did not get my complete report. And the employees I interviewed...I have never seen a gloomier bunch. The whole place gave me the willies.
But whatever, the job was done and I never have to go back to that soul sucking site again. I responded back and told Kelly I'd email her a copy as soon as I could.

All totally normal so far...
