The one where Gina tries REALLY hard not to be an object lesson.The holidays can be tough.  We’ve talked before about how to survive from the social aspect.  Now we talk about how to survive them from the “don’t overdo it” aspect.  Because you can’t pour from an empty glass.  And God forbid our glasses be empty, dammit!Tonight's drink?  Harmony, because that’s our goal this holiday season, isn’t it?  Check out our website at alwaysneverright.com (http://alwaysneverright.com/) to get the recipe and have a drink with us!Also check out our social media sites:https://www.facebook.com/groups/alwaysneverright/http://instagram.com/alwaysneverrighthttp://twitter.com/alwaysnvrrigt
The one where we discuss our maladies, surgeries, and various and sundry old people things. Oh, and how to be a successful patient.So yeah, part of being Gen X means we’re not getting any younger. And with age comes ... all kinds of medical stuff. The older you get, the more important it is to actually be a GOOD patient (i.e., Jill) rather than a bad and/or questionable one (i.e., Gina).  While Jill is a good example, Gina is an object lesson.  But so long as you learn it’s all good!Tonight's drink?  Appropriately enough, the Painkiller.  Check out our website at alwaysneverright.com (http://alwaysneverright.com/) to get the recipe and have a drink with us!Also check out our social media sites:https://www.facebook.com/groups/alwaysneverright/http://instagram.com/alwaysneverrighthttp://twitter.com/alwaysnvrrigt
The One Where We Do NOT Forgo the Cocktails.The holidays are coming up, and you know what that means, right?  It means loose pants, seasonal recipes, child cage matches, puppy kickers, and Aunt Betty IS gonna be a dick.So yeah, despite what one advice article said, we will NOT be forgoing the cocktails, thankyouverymuch. We have some (hopefully) good advice for ya, though!Tonight's drink?  Jill created this week’s - Family Time!!  Check out our website at alwaysneverright.com (http://alwaysneverright.com/) to get the recipe and have a drink with us!Also check out our social media sites:https://www.facebook.com/groups/alwaysneverright/http://instagram.com/alwaysneverrighthttp://twitter.com/alwaysnvrrigt
The one where we talk about how financial reality really DOES bite for Gen X.Really.  From a financial perspective, we're between a rock (a dotcom bust, housing market crash, and a recession) and a hard place (aka, potentially another recession).  So we're going to talk about that.  Are you gonna get answers?  No, haha, you know us by now!  You'll just get Gina's unprofessional opinion about that potential next recession and some camaraderie in the finanial wastelands.  But at least misery loves company?  I guess?  Maybe I need to re-listen to last week's episode about being blue...Tonight's drink?  The Millionaire Margarita, cause we love us some good irony!  Check out our website at alwaysneverright.com (http://alwaysneverright.com/) to get the recipe and have a drink with us!Also check out our social media sites:https://www.facebook.com/groups/alwaysneverright/http://instagram.com/alwaysneverrighthttp://twitter.com/alwaysnvrrigt

The one with Gillian and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.We all get a little down sometimes.  That's human nature.  Tonight, we talk a bit about what we do to try to get back up, and dose it with our usual inappropriate humor, self-awareness, and suprisingly little judginess.  Tonight's drink?  Gina created a new one - the Dilly Dilly!!  Check out our website at alwaysneverright.com (http://alwaysneverright.com/) to get the recipe and have a drink with us!Also check out our social media sites:https://www.facebook.com/groups/alwaysneverright/http://instagram.com/alwaysneverrighthttp://twitter.com/alwaysnvrrigt
The one with all the ghouls!Tonight we veer away from the standard frivolity and instead get into some creepy AF frivolity!  Cause it's Halloween next week, so we gotta spooky it up!  And by amazing coindence, it's episode 31 and Halloween's on the 31st and ... yeah, tenuous link.Anyway, we not only tell ghost stories, but we get the ghost stories of our special guest stars, JERRY AND TRACY PAULLEY from Hillbilly Horror Stories!!!!  (Picture Kermit arm flailing.)Tonight's drink?  The HELLFIRE, MWAHAHAHAHA!  Check out our website at alwaysneverright.com (http://alwaysneverright.com/) to get the recipe and have a drink with us!Also check out our social media sites:https://www.facebook.com/groups/alwaysneverright/http://instagram.com/alwaysneverrighthttp://twitter.com/alwaysnvrrigt
The one where we record with even more distance because Gina's on the road again.Yup.  Another work trip for Gina. Jill doesn't show up half way through this one, though.  But that's okay.  It gives us a chance to talk about how we've made the best of work travel, things we do that maybe will help you make the most of it.  Because adulting is hard. And while work travel sounds all cool and sexy when you're younger, once middle age hits, it's just ... there.  But your own bed isn't.  Still ... there are things that can make it fun!  Hang in there, we'll discuss 'em! Tonight's drink?  The sazerac!  Why?  Because it was in Gina's hotel bar and Jill had the ingredients at home.  Check out our website at alwaysneverright.com (http://alwaysneverright.com/) to get the recipe and have a drink with us!Also check out our social media sites:https://www.facebook.com/groups/alwaysneverright/http://instagram.com/alwaysneverrighthttp://twitter.com/alwaysnvrrigt
The one with ALL the drinking.We may have outdone ourselves.  But we had a very cocktail-related Vegas adventure!  We talk about the drinks we drank, the dranks we drank, the foot we ate, the food we threw away, and most importantly, the fun people we hung out with! This week's drink is an Old Fashioned - Made with Blanton's, baby! Because we learned you can tell a lot about a bar by the bourbon is keeps on hand, and if it has Blanton's, you're golden.  Pro tip - Lots of places in Vegas have Blanton's! Check out our website at alwaysneverright.com (http://alwaysneverright.com/) to get the recipe and have a drink with us!Also check out our social media sites:https://www.facebook.com/groups/alwaysneverright/http://instagram.com/alwaysneverrighthttp://twitter.com/alwaysnvrrigt

The one where we compare tattoos and piercings and RAWR!We acknowledge things don't make you badasses, your actions do.  But we like to think we have a healthy dose of both. So we talk about both as they relate to our badass selves, okay?  Unleash your inner badass and have a cocktail with us!This week, it's Moscow mules!

The one were we discuss who we cool choose to be our Ride or Die companions - besides the obvious.Whether it’s Mr. Rogers or the Notorious RBG, some folks just HAVE to be a member of your posse, even if they never actually will be.  But in a totally fun and hypothetical world, who would be in YOUR inner circle?  We could not in any way, shape, or form get our chosen drink to fit the theme, but that’s okay.  It’s still yums and that’s what matters!  Check out our website at alwaysneverright.com to get the recipe for the lovely Tiger Tanaka and have a drink with us!Also check out our social media sites:https://www.facebook.com/groups/alwaysneverright/http://instagram.com/alwaysneverrighthttp://twitter.com/alwaysnvrrigt
The one where we all learn who’s on our zombie apocalypse team and how disaster can satisfy our deepest needs.You also get to hear about Gina's tornado and when Jill met Patrick Swayze (he's awesome in real life, too).Jill absolutely liveS for disaster movies. Even bad ones (not too bad though - that's more Gina's jam) can be bliss. Especially when they are of the “natural” disaster type, when the disaster is a natural disaster that is caused by man. A rogue electric storm causes a super charged tornado. Some sort of ozone hole causes ice to freeze people instantly.  It's fun! And if Lou Diamond Phillips or a Baldwin is in it,  count us in.We in honor of ocean-based disaster films, or drink is the Shark Bite! If you would like to have a cocktail with us, you can find the recipe at AlwaysNeverRight.com (http://alwaysneverright.com/)Also check out our social media sites:https://www.facebook.com/groups/alwaysneverright/http://instagram.com/alwaysneverrighthttp://twitter.com/alwaysnvrright
The one where you get to finally meet EVERYONE— almost. Jon the Brit isn't present, but that's okay.  He woulda done a LOT of eyerolling, and probably ruined his vision.Words fail me in describing this episode.  Largely because it was so all over the place.  We had a theme, but we derailed early and often.  But it does all kinda tie back to the theme of weird stuff we've wondered?  Kinda?  Eh, let's go with it.  We somehow shift from centaurs to Gonzo's chicken obsession to traumatizing Nina with mai tais and Disney Films, to Rexy traumatizing ALL of us with a wet Gene Hackman... You get the idea. We revisit the Cherry Crush, because Jill wanted to see if would knock Gina on her ass again. It didn't, but it was far yummier when Jill made it!If you would like to have a cocktail with us, you can find the recipe at AlwaysNeverRight.com (http://alwaysneverright.com/)Also check out our social media sites:https://www.facebook.com/groups/alwaysneverright/http://instagram.com/alwaysneverrighthttp://twitter.com/alwaysnvrright
The one where Jill runs from open doors. So, it's obviously more nuanced than that.  Someone was holding that door, but he was WAY up ahead, and ... well, listen, she tells it better. In this episode, we discuss some of the expectations society has of girls and women.  When actually, if all we really need is to be "strong and sparkly," then that's our perogative, right?  Right!What else is strong and sparkly?  A French 75.  It's also incrediby delicious!If you would like to have a French 75 with us, you can find the recipe at AlwaysNeverRight.com (http://alwaysneverright.com/)(And we apologize for Gina's sound quality - she's working on getting a new mic since the one she was using broke.)Also check out our social media sites:https://www.facebook.com/groups/alwaysneverright/http://instagram.com/alwaysneverrighthttp://twitter.com/alwaysnvrright
The one where you learn Gina's elvish secret.And she turns red.  You can't see it, but pure red, people!  But mostly, this episode is less about shaming Gina and more about developing friendships when you're a bit longer in the tooth.  Our special guest star and new friend Alice Agnello of the fabulous "Kids Are Grown, Now What?" podcast joins us to discuss what to do when you look around and discover, making new friendships isn't always easy.  As Jill points out, there are apps for that, but still...While the name of this episode is in honor of the iconic show about female friendships Golden Girls, the drink is in honor of another iconic show about female friendships - Sex and the City.  Join us for cosmos, m'dolls!If you would like to have a cosmopolitan, you can find the recipe at AlwaysNeverRight.com (http://alwaysneverright.com/)And besure to check out Alice's podcast as well as her website, aliceagnello.com.  Also check out our social media sites:https://www.facebook.com/groups/alwaysneverright/http://instagram.com/alwaysneverrighthttp://twitter.com/alwaysnvrright
The one where you find out about the time value of money. Maybe you're naturally cheap like Gina.  If so, we need to talk.  Sometimes cheap isn't always worth it.  I mean, would you rather spend $60 a week for someone to mow your lawn or would you rather spur an asthma attack?  Well, sometimes we have to prioritize lots of things along those lines.  Bath butlers ... those may still be a step too far.  But that's up to you, dolls.If you would like to have a See You Next Wednesday with us (Jill's own creation), you can find the recipe at AlwaysNeverRight.com (http://alwaysneverright.com/)Also check out our social media sites:https://www.facebook.com/groups/alwaysneverright/http://instagram.com/alwaysneverrighthttp://twitter.com/alwaysnvrright
The one where we realize we knew nothing 20+ years ago. Except for the things we did know. Seriously, look at where you were at 21, and where you are now. Is it all you thought it'd be?  Is it nothing you thought it'd be?  Are you like Jill, and have always been sage?  Are you like Gina, and cling so hard to optimism you go from sugary to saccharine? Have a drink with us and time travel!No recipe tonight, dear friends, becaus we got pre-made cocktails like we did back in the day, except this time, we don't feel bad throwing out stuff if it turns out to be junk.  We got better taste over time, after all.Still, come check is out at AlwaysNeverRight.com (http://alwaysneverright.com/)Also check out our social media sites:https://www.facebook.com/groups/alwaysneverright/http://instagram.com/alwaysneverrighthttp://twitter.com/alwaysnvrright
The one where  we bring back some old friends and talk about movies.And of course, as we do, talking about movies includes finding out Tom Hanks is every bit as sweet as you think he is, and Bill Murray makes an excellent wing man. What did we drink to celebrate Episode 20?  Well, since we're on the other end of 40, the drink is called "40 is the new 20."  It's delish!If you'd like to share a cocktail with us while we chat, you can get the recipes at AlwaysNeverRight.com (http://alwaysneverright.com/)You can also find the recipes - and us! - on our social media sites:https://www.facebook.com/groups/alwaysneverright/http://instagram.com/alwaysneverrighthttp://twitter.com/alwaysnvrright
The one where you find out what we have noticed about some of our favorite things that are actually pretty troubling in retrospect.What do you do when you look back at things you used to like and realize .... "EW????"  Get some drinks and some friends and dissect it, that's what.We start with Bond, Jerk Bond, and it just gets worse from there.  On the upside, discussing the latent misogyny gives us a great excuse to try martinis!  Jill goes for a truly Bonderific Vesper, while dirty girl Gina goes heavy on the olives.   If you'd like to share a cocktail with us while we chat, you can get the recipes at AlwaysNeverRight.com (http://alwaysneverright.com/)You can also find the recipes - and us! - on our social media sites:https://www.facebook.com/groups/alwaysneverright/http://instagram.com/alwaysneverrighthttp://twitter.com/alwaysnvrright
The one where we tell you about the things that surprised …and continue to surprise us, about Adulting.Seriously.  We were not prepared.  This is hard.What makes hard things easier?  Tequila, baby!  So this week, we're downing margaritas while we ponder what we've gotten right, what we've gotten wrong, and what's just plain ol' slapstick gold. If you'd like to share a cocktail with us while we chat, you can get the recipe at AlwaysNeverRight.com (http://alwaysneverright.com/)You can also find the recipes - and us! - on our social media sites:https://www.facebook.com/groups/alwaysneverright/http://instagram.com/alwaysneverrighthttp://twitter.com/alwaysnvrright
The one where you hear more about how much we like to eat. And it’s a lot. I smell a recurring theme.Find out where we've gotten some of the absolute best noms!  With a few digressions along the way, of course.So this week's cocktail should therefore be food-based, right?  How about booze-soaked cherries?  We're drinking Gillian's own creation, a Cherry Crush!  If you'd like to share a cocktail with us while we chat, you can get the recipe at AlwaysNeverRight.com (http://alwaysneverright.com/)You can also find the recipes - and us! - on our social media sites:https://www.facebook.com/groups/alwaysneverright/http://instagram.com/alwaysneverrighthttp://twitter.com/alwaysnvrright
