[00:02:02] Chelsey Donn: oh, my goodness

[00:02:04] Trey Gerrald: birthday.

[00:02:06] Chelsey Donn: thank you. Happy birthday, Meryl Streep as well.

[00:02:10] Trey Gerrald: Ah, look at that. It is just a celebrat Tori de Chelsey. was your birthday going? Thank you for spending it

[00:02:16] Chelsey Donn: Oh, my goodness. I would spend it with no one else. My birthday is great. Thanks for asking. I mean, just grateful to have another year round the sun, traveling through time and space with you. Try.

[00:02:30] Trey Gerrald: What are your favorite things about birthday celebrations? Do you have any favorite things or disfavored things?

[00:02:36] Chelsey Donn: Oh, you know, it's so hard for me because I was such a big birthday person for such a long time in that I always would do an event for years, years, we would go to a Dodgers game every year. For years, I did the Hollywood bowl every year with a big group. And it's just so sad to say, but like, you know, COVID sort of canceled those big, huge moments where we can all be together in a public space and feel comfortable.

[00:03:05] Chelsey Donn: I've been a little bit more low key this year. I got to say, but I think it's, you know, I think it's good. I'm just happy. As long as I'm celebrating with someone, I don't, I don't like to do the big birthday dinners. Stress me out. That's why I'm like more of an events girl. I'm like buy a ticket to the game.

[00:03:21] Chelsey Donn: We'll go. You want to buy yourself a hot dog? Go ahead. I get stressed out with the traditional birthday dinner, you know, like who's going to pay the check. Ugh. God, I can't.

[00:03:31] Trey Gerrald: Yeah, for sure.

[00:03:32] Chelsey Donn: Do you have a special way that you like to celebrate your birthday?

[00:03:36] Trey Gerrald: I think the older I've gotten the less, I want to like even do anything like separate of birthday. For many years there, this is a weird tale that I could expound on in the after-show perhaps. for my 26th birthday, I went to a pottery painting place and invited a bunch of people to come and join. And while I was painting a coffee mug, I booked my first television series.

[00:04:04] Trey Gerrald: got a phone call saying I was

[00:04:06] Chelsey Donn: God. That's so cool.
