[00:01:26] Chelsey Donn: Oh, the return of

[00:01:28] Trey Gerrald: another Thanksgiving.

[00:01:30] Chelsey Donn: Hard to believe it's been A' full year since the debut of the Turkey on Review That Review. Surprise. We don't have any merch. That includes the Goble gobble. But that being said, happy Thanksgiving. grateful to be here today,

[00:01:45] Trey Gerrald: Are you busy cooking?

[00:01:47] Chelsey Donn: as always with the fam, so you know, here on the East Coast and, uh, just, yeah, thankful to be around family.

[00:01:56] Chelsey Donn: How bout you?

[00:01:57] Trey Gerrald: Yeah, same. You know, 'I know that Thanksgiving has questionable roots, but 'I think what it has shown up, as in my experience of life in which 'I encourage everyone to lean into, is it's just an opportunity to be with friends and family and loved ones and celebrate the things that are good in your life that you are grateful for.

[00:02:18] Trey Gerrald: So let's look at that and not the other

[00:02:20] Chelsey Donn: Yes, totally agree. 'I was thinking about this today when 'I was thinking about, you know, all of the things we have to complain about because Thanksgiving also brings about, you know, stress in the family and there's so much going on and there's cooking and there's this, and the amount of VEing that, you know, for, for A' holiday that's so grateful is, But at the same time, 'I was thinking.

[00:02:42] Chelsey Donn: 'I would be remiss not to express my gratitude on the show. So is it okay with you? Try A' instead of VEing at the top. And lodging. A'. Complaint. 'I. Offer A'. Little bit of gratitude.

[00:02:55] Trey Gerrald: Let's do it. let's go All right. Well then ChelseyBD, why don't you kick us off?

[00:03:04] Chelsey Donn: Well, first of all, 'I know that 'I can get A'. Little bit like mushy, but 'I have to say like, I'm so grateful for this podcast and my relationship with Trey and my relationship with all of the listeners and everyone that's slid into our dms to tell us, you know, all the positive things and it's. Really, this podcast is such A' highlight of my week every single week.

[00:03:27] Chelsey Donn: 'I know 'I say it all the time, but 'I wouldn't get through the past two. Well, almost 'I don't know. How long are we into this tray over A' year? 'I attribute over A' year of my life and like the betterment of my mental health to this podcast and being able to have the consistency of showing up every week and making this commitment and having fun and getting to interact with my art.

[00:03:52] Chelsey Donn: And there's just so much to be grateful for with this podcast. So 'I just thought, what better thing to express my gratitude for than to be A' little meta maybe, and say, Thank you, Review. That, Review for coming into my life and changing it. And Goldie, and also Goldie Hi. She concur. Okay. Go to. Yeah, she agrees and she kind of blocks like A', chicken, Turkey,

[00:04:24] Trey Gerrald: Yes, 'I. Love that. 'I. Highly concur. 'I wrote down, um, online banking, but 'I take this opportunity to also join you and the gratitude for all of the listeners for the little community that we've created with the show. And speaking of like artistic fulfillment, 'I, do you know we have discussed on the show we both are actors, What I've really found in the last, you know, year and change that this doing this show every week has really offered sort of A' release of A'.

[00:05:01] Trey Gerrald: Lot of need to stake an identity about being an actor because 'I do get A' lot of fulfillment from doing this. And 'I am able to entertain A' different job that has nothing to do. Entertaining only paying bills and it doesn't have much of A' negative impact in my life because 'I do feel very balanced and happy, which is totally not what 'I anticipated coming into this.

[00:05:24] Trey Gerrald: 'I wasn't sure 'I just know 'I wanted to do something like this, but it's something 'I really yearned for A' lot in my twenties. So 'I was hearing that as you were sharing that 'I would also love to say that 'I am very grateful for online banking because, Can you just go back to the days when we had those little, like those.

[00:05:42] Trey Gerrald: Tube

[00:05:43] Chelsey Donn: my God.

[00:05:45] Trey Gerrald: you had to wait in line. It was so annoying. And now it's like 'I, literally pay all of my bills through the app. It really is amazing. So I'm very grateful for online banking. And you That's listening right now.

[00:05:55] Chelsey Donn: And you. And you. And you.

[00:05:57] Trey Gerrald: Well, that was good.

[00:05:58] Chelsey Donn: was good. 'I feel like every single time 'I mean you express gratitude towards me last week with pimping up our merch and like, you know, being grateful for my designs. But 'I feel like I've like 'I always, like I'm gonna induct Trey as My Royal Highness. And you're like, I'm gonna induct sponges.

[00:06:15] Chelsey Donn: You know,

[00:06:16] Trey Gerrald: 'I 'I mean I've literally had dejavu twice already. Cuz 'I think you inducted me last Thanksgiving.

[00:06:22] Chelsey Donn: I'm no 'I. Think 'I inducted you, but this isn't an induction. This is just A' moment of g.

[00:06:28] Trey Gerrald: Oh my God. You're right. Oh right, right, right, right, right. But even today, for me, thinking about the Royal Highness to come later, 'I was like, Did 'I do this last year? 'I just like everything's blurring together. Good thing 'I have that Excel spreadsheet that 'I never update. Um, anyway. No

[00:06:43] Chelsey Donn: Time truly, truly flies when you're podcasting sometimes.

[00:06:47] Trey Gerrald: wait. 'I have to share in real time. David and 'I went to A' Atlantic City last weekend, which we teased and oh my gosh, ChelseyBD, we had so much fun. 'I was 'I. Famously put on Instagram my voucher, where 'I won $1,200.

[00:07:06] Chelsey Donn: Amazing. Which, which machine were you playing? Well,

[00:07:10] Trey Gerrald: Actually 'I 'I only did slot machines. David didn't do A' single slot machine. He only did poker tables, but we did both leave the weekend up,

[00:07:18] Chelsey Donn: Oh, that's amazing.

[00:07:20] Trey Gerrald: 'I know it is pretty remarkable. 'I did not leave with $1,200, um, but 'I 'I did leave up $300. So 'I spent A' lot of money, but 'I made 'I. You know, 'I made it all back plus 300.

[00:07:35] Trey Gerrald: So I'm pretty proud of that.

[00:07:36] Chelsey Donn: That's great. Yeah. 'I mean it's always nice when you can have fun. 'I find, There are very few people that can get that like initial win on the first day and be like, I'm just done now, you know?

[00:07:49] Trey Gerrald: Well, that's the hardest part is, and 'I even read on, cuz the Bogota is an MGM property, so even on their website it's like, Get help. So 'I was like, do they have all of these? Get helps everywhere. There must be laws about addiction. So 'I was reading and even on the website it says the house will always win and the longer you play, the more you will lose.

[00:08:13] Trey Gerrald: 'I was like, Wow. They're even saying it like they're saying, like, You're not gonna

[00:08:19] Chelsey Donn: the odds of losing are so much higher than the odds of winning. So like if you get that one win and then you just walk away, then you're golden. But nobody's gonna do that. So at least you're, you know what, it's always fun to play with the house's money,

[00:08:31] Trey Gerrald: Oh yeah, for sure. And I'll tell you that we are, you need like 20,000 points to get to the next like, uh, reward status or whatever. And so we're 2000 points away,

[00:08:44] Chelsey Donn: Wow.

[00:08:45] Trey Gerrald: A' three day weekend. And um, you asked, so 'I won the most on this. Well, there was A' Wheel of Fortune game, which was really fun.

[00:08:54] Trey Gerrald: And like the higher you bet, the more like, um, pointers like on the me around, you know, the little click, click, click, click. Like they would illuminate more and more pointers. So 'I won A' lot on that. Then 'I also won A' lot on this. Um, 'I,

[00:09:06] Chelsey Donn: Buffalo.

[00:09:06] Trey Gerrald: It was like A',

[00:09:07] Chelsey Donn: No

[00:09:08] Trey Gerrald: you know, 'I won A' lot on Buffalo in Las Vegas.

[00:09:11] Trey Gerrald: But, and these buffalo machines, they, you know, if there were 900 slot machines, they. 12 buffalos and they were always taken ChelseyBD. People were waiting in line at the buffalos. No 'I went on like rich little piggies

[00:09:27] Chelsey Donn: Oh God, I've lost so much money on those fricking piggies.

[00:09:31] Trey Gerrald: like it's like A' blue, A' golden A' red, and they like increase. Do you know what I'm talking about? And then it

[00:09:35] Chelsey Donn: You put the coins in the piggy like, it like randomly puts coins, and then the coins explode and you get the bonus.

[00:09:42] Trey Gerrald: Yes. Okay, so wait, so there's two pig games. One airs like rich little piggies. It's three piggy banks. And then the other one, which 'I also want A' lot on is A' Giant gold pig.

[00:09:52] Chelsey Donn: That's the one. 'I always lose money

[00:09:54] Trey Gerrald: it gets bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger, and its face gets concerned and then it explodes.

[00:09:59] Chelsey Donn: Yes. Yes.
