Clare’s shameful sin

Clare’s shameful sin

Clare had to pick the lesser of two sins this morning after doing something against her Catholic faith. Destiny is jealous that a local news person and she were at the same restaurant, but he was the only one who got attention for being a local celeb. Eric is going to his family home down south over the weekend (a.k.a. his brother’s house in North Liberty.)

Eric says “rabbit, rabbit” on the first of every month. It’s supposed to bring good luck. He’s done it ever since he was a boy. Clare saves bows that come on her presents. Her aunt always insisted you can reuse them! What’s something weird your family did that you thought was totally normal?

The weekend is here and if coming up with fun things to do has been a challenge during the pandemic, allow The Morning Scramble to help you fill your social calendar. They’ll tell you what events they’re looking forward to and ‘What Lights Their Candle.’

Is this a fake Spring?

Is this a fake Spring?

One thing that’s putting a smile on the faces of Eastern Iowans has got to be the weather! The Morning Scramble will spread some ‘Good Vibrations’ tomorrow by checking in with Meteorologist Rebecca Kopelman about the rising temps and decreased chance of spring flooding.

Eric and Clare don’t agree on one of our most basic fast foods: the French fry. Eric says the classic fry is the best, but Clare says sweet potato fries are actually superior. What do you say? Get ready to deliver your verdict for ‘Jury in a Hurry.’

Bad Iowa slogans

Bad Iowa slogans

The state of Iowa is in need of a new slogan! It’s time to freshen things up and The Morning Scramble is here to help. We’re going to start the process by getting all of the bad ideas out of the way.

We have our first ever Grandma-traversy this morning on The Morning Scramble. A mom got the very exciting news from her son that she’s going to be a grandma, but he doesn’t want her to tell anyone, but she wants to tell the world this good news! What should she do?

 

Clare’s side hustle gone wrong

Clare’s side hustle gone wrong

Clare has a side hustle this time each year with her daughters, and one of her daughters shorted a family member of their product. Eric is happy the sun is shining so he can officially wear t-shirts, but he’s also upset this morning after someone broke an etiquette rule in the staff kitchen. Destiny thinks she’s having a quarter-life crisis.

The Morning Scramble is ready for another ‘Taste It Tuesday!” Clare and Eric were gifted Lady Gaga Oreos! It’s the hot new spring flavor, so they’ll try some new spring candy flavors this episode.

Morning Scramble Movie Club has given up on their mission to find a movie that will make Destiny cry. She didn’t shed a single tear when she watched “Beaches,” “Click,” or “Homeward Bound: the Incredible Journey.”  We need to cleanse our palettes and find the next great movie to watch.

The 500 Mile Challenge

The 500 Mile Challenge

Clare thinks she might have created a new TikTok challenge. Destiny actually got hooked on a Netflix show that Clare recommended to her. Any time Eric gets too close to his nephew, his nephew cries.

The Morning Scramble gets one shot…one opportunity…to show you exactly what they did over the weekend. Check out their weekend photos on the Z102.9 Facebook page and listen this episode to hear the stories of their adventures!

Morning Scramble Movie Club meets once again and fingers crossed, hopefully this week’s movie selection “Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey” will be the movie that makes Destiny cry.

The Golden Globes were last night. The Morning Scramble made their predictions on which TV shows and movies would win some of the big categories. They better hope they made some winning picks because the Scrambler with the lowest amount of correct guesses has to spin the Wheel of Punishment.

Hotel pool bod

Hotel pool bod

Eric was invited to visit some family staying in a hotel and needs to get a hotel pool bod stat. Destiny blames Eric for her mishaps when he takes vacation. Clare has some tension below her lower back, but is too afraid to go to a masseuse because she feels weird asking them to massage her buttox.

The Golden Globes are on Sunday. The Morning Scramble takes a look at some of the big categories and make projections on who they think will win. Their predictions had better be good because loser has to spin the Wheel of Punishment.

Not to brag, but the Morning Scramble has had some success in the food creation industry (the ballpark taco dog). They are ready to try to get yet another food idea off the ground!

February Fools?

February Fools?

Clare’s daughters are April Foolsing her and it’s only February. Eric thinks Destiny is associated with murder after seeing some suspicious items in her backseat. Eric’s credit card was hacked and is dealing with all the annoying aftermath.

All this week Together We Achieve, formerly the Iowa Derecho Resource Center, has been collecting donations to take down to Texas and help Texans recover from the cold weather they experienced last week. The Morning Scramble will check in with Raymond Sydell on what donations they still need to collect.

‘Jury in a Hurry’ takes us to…the bedroom. Eric and Clare don’t agree on who is responsible for turning out the lights at night. Clare says it’s always her husband’s job because he usually goes to bed last. Eric says it’s the responsibility of the person who is physically closer to the light switch. What do you say?

Past-cast

Past-cast

Clare wants to know if there’s such a thing as a past-cast..the opposite of a forecast? Destiny is wondering if people should wear a mask in drive-thrus. Eric found another critter in his garage. It’s not the first time this has happened. Tune in this episode to find out what kind of critter it is this time.

There’s a mom on TikTok who has gone viral for the punishment she gave her 11 year old daughter for not picking up her room. She took all of her toys, make up, AND clothes. There’s a bed and empty dresser left in the room and mom lays out the daughter’s clothes each day. Is that too harsh or does the crime fit the punishment? Get ready to chime in on this week’s ‘Momtroversy.’

Slack off day 

Slack off day

Eric’s last day of quarantine is today. He’s excited to get back into the studio and Destiny is excited to slack off.  Destiny has finally trained one of her dogs to sit. The Tooth Fairy found a tooth that was broken into two under Clare’s daughter’s pillow. Should her daughter get double the money?

The Morning Scramble is gearing up for another ‘Taste It Tuesday!” This week the Morning Scramble was given a gift: 3 containers of cotton candy. Which sounds sweet, but there’s a catch…the flavors are not your typical cotton candy flavors. Find out what wacky flavors the Scramblers sample this episode.

Morning Scramble Movie Club is still on a mission to find a movie that will make Destiny cry. She didn’t shed a single tear when she watched ‘Beaches’ with Bette Midler and “Click” with Adam Sandler didn’t get it done. We have to find the movie that will get the tears flowing! Perhaps movies about animals will be the key to unlock her cold, dead heart

Clare smells like dying Easter eggs

Clare smells like dying Easter eggs

Clare’s black boots are having a tough winter and washed them with vinegar to get rid of the salt stains. It didn’t work and now she smells bad. Eric has been in quarantine for so long that he talked a stranger’s ear off after having some car troubles. Destiny is asking for people to stop driving right next to her at the same speed.

The Morning Scramble gets one shot…one opportunity…to show you exactly what they did over the weekend. Check out their weekend photos on the Z102.9 Facebook page and hear the stories of their adventures during this episode.

Morning Scramble Movie Club meets once again and fingers crossed, hopefully this week’s movie selection “Click” will be the movie that made Destiny cry.

All 3 Scramblers came up losers of The Morning Scramble ‘Finish the Love Song Lyric’ Game.’ They’ve spun the Wheel of Punishment, and you chose their favorite punishment: ‘Chubby Bunny’ or ‘Loser Acceptance Speech.’ Tune in to hear which one they have to do!
