Fun & Games Friday

Fun & Games Friday

It’s the first Friday in a while that hasn’t been a holiday, so Clare and Eric decide to make it a game day. From Show & Tell At Work Day to playing This or That, tune in to join in on the FUN.

The Morning Scramble is creating a new club; it’s like a book club, but instead of books, we watch movies! Destiny has selected our first movie to watch: ‘High School Musical.’ This week Morning Scramble Movie Club will watch the film and come together Monday morning to discuss.

Kitchen chaos..or kitchen organized?

Kitchen chaos..or kitchen organized?

Eric and his wife, Shannon, have just moved back into their home post-derecho. They need to get things back in order and Shannon wants to take this opportunity to get the kitchen super organized…but Eric’s not on board. He thinks they should just put it all back the way it was. Who is right?  You be the judge for ‘Jury in a Hurry.’

Even though the Capitol is on everyone’s minds this morning, The Morning Scramble also has some other things on their minds. Destiny has cheated on her diet, which is her New Year’s Resolution, but she’s proud of herself for bouncing back. Eric bought a record player and is indecisive about which album should be his first purchase. Clare was muted her mask tones until yesterday when she bought a bunch of colorful masks.

 

Princess Banana Hammock

Clare and Eric talk embarrassing screen names this episode. Remember that FRIENDS episode when Phoebe wanted to change her name to Princess Banana Hammock?

The Morning Scramble puts their taste buds to the test again for ‘Taste It Tuesday.’ They try out a health concoction Clare’s mom calls “Fire Water.” It’s made from horseradish and is supposed to boast the immune system.

Magic Z Ball

Magic Z Ball

Clare is back! We ring in 2021 with our predictions for the New Year with our Magic Z Ball.

Pics or it didn’t happen.  We post our “sick picks” (sick in a good way) from the holiday weekend. Destiny has a new hairdo. Clare participated in a little family sledding. Eric had a virtual New Year’s Eve dinner party.

Whatcha streamin? Clare and Eric compare notes on new discoveries and old favorites they watched during the long holiday weekend.

Random red balloon 

Random red balloon

Eric saw a single red balloon yesterday and fears it’s all a part of 2020’s evil plan. Destiny thinks she lives in the best neighborhood after yesterday’s snow storm.

Our last Momtroversy of 2020:  Are kids’ diaries and phones off-limits for parents?  How much privacy should you give your kid?  Destiny and Eric talk about it during this episode.

Remember when The Morning Scramble tried to reset 2020 with 2020 2.0 on June 30th?  We wrote New Years 2.0 letters to ourselves and will open them, now six months later.

Happy Bacon Eve

Happy Bacon Eve

The Morning Scramble will wrap up 2020 the best way they know how: in BACON! It’s a bacon-themed “Taste it Tuesday.” Eric brought his tailgate classic “Meat Wrapped Meat” (aka Heaven on a Weiner). Destiny made a listener suggested dish: bacon stuffed cinnamon rolls.

Now that COVID-19 vaccinations have begun in Linn County, what happens next? The Morning Scramble speaks with Heather Medder from Linn County Public Health.

Christmas in the ER

Christmas in the ER

Hopefully your long, holiday weekend was full of fun and relaxation! And good news: it was the last weekend of 2020! The Morning Scramble will share what they did: one weekend involves going to the emergency room.

As Clare is on vacation this week, Eric and Destiny take over. Destiny was excited to receive her traditional gingerbread-themed Christmas gift. Eric has a random scratch on his face and has no idea where it came from.

Hollywood is gifted us with lots of brand new movies in theaters and on multiple different streaming platforms. Eric had been looking forward to ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ and ‘Soul.’ He’ll give us his review of both movies this episode.

Holly Jolly Tales

Holly Jolly Tales

Everyone knows the classic children’s story, “Twas the Night Before Christmas.” It’s great, but who’s going to write the next great Christmas classic story? Perhaps The Morning Scramble? They’ve been hard at work crafting some jolly tales that they’ll share this episode.

Eric has wind and garbage on his mind. Clare felt a little jealous after her husband received a haul of gifts from work yesterday.

Being a parent is a tough job and being a new parent can be so stressful! A new mom wants to know what’s the first holiday film she should share with her child? That’s our ‘Momtroversy’ this week.

 

Stupid Brilliance

Stupid Brilliance

Destiny was running late and had a moment of stupid brilliance as she wore her coat inside-out this morning. Clare got her Christmas cards back when she thought they were going to be late! Eric is officiating a Christmas-themed wedding at a mall tomorrow.

The Morning Scramble is ready to put their taste buds to the test again this week for ‘Taste It Tuesday.’ The team will put their taste buds to the test and try yule logs and mulled wine.

Everyone knows the classic children’s story, “Twas the Night Before Christmas.” It’s great, but who’s going to write the next great Christmas classic story? Perhaps The Morning Scramble? They’re working on some fun Christmas stories. Head to the Z Facebook page to pitch a line that they must include in their story.
