Thanks for reading my blog. Both of you. I hope you find some points of humor or entertainment in them, and if you don't, well...email me some! I am always looking for more. By the way, my boss just told me that I'm not sharing enough information about myself. He wants a bio. So, in the interest of any of your curiosity and for a little more job security, here I go:
Hobbies: Radio. Although I am seeking another to supplement.
What I Do In My Free Time: WHAT?
Favorite Foods: Pretty much anything that doesn't make the kitchen stink after it's cooked.
Favorite Singers/Bands: Coldplay, Jars of Clay, Hillsong, Train, Colbie Caillat, Sting, Eagles, Chicago.
Favorite Women: My two girls.
Favorite Men: My two boys.
Favorite TV shows: American Idol, Fringe, Burn Notice, Swamp People, Fox News, The NEW Two and a Half Men.
Favorite Movies: Romance, Sci-fi and comedy. The trifecta. (Yep, I like CHICK FLICKS...don't judge me.) Favs include Star Trek, You've Got Mail, While You Were Sleeping, Dumb and Dumber, Caddyshack, Rat Race, Blazing Saddles, Animal House, Airplane!
Political View: He said WHAT?
Religious View: If Jesus can save me, He can save anybody.
Favorite interview: It's a three way tie. Billy Preston, Kenny Loggins and James Taylor. Three of the nicest guys you could ever meet. The late Billy was the best in making me feel comfortable when I was a little nervous.
Favorite concerts: Billy Joel and Elton John. Maroon 5 and Train. Chicago's still got it, but I think the late Dan Fogelberg wins out in the "older school" category.
Favorite Quote: Phillipians 4:19: "But my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
Favorite job: This one! Love playing your favorite songs.
Someone once told me that working out is FUN!
Here's elyptical candid photo from my 14-year-old daughter.
So, what's a sweaty DJ to do?? Go to Jared and ask him...He just told me "eat fresh." What a company guy.
Hey, shouldn't we be judging a gumbo cook off or something??
OK, here it is...along with some MORE unique answers...
"HOW YOU DOIN'?'
There it is. The most asked question is out there. Now, HOW do you answer? In my cross section of everyday people today, when asked--not surprisingly--the overwhelming choice is "good and you?." Do they REALLY want to know? 95% of everyone I asked said "good" right back. They wanted it short and semi-sweet. My personal answer was "better than a Mayan working on his calendar." That got several strange looks around here.
But wait! There's more findings. If you want the same ol' same ol' boring response, just ask average folks. BUT, if you want real entertainment value, just ask a salesperson who just attended a Get Motivated seminar. I got "excellent" and the ever-popular-but-over-used, "FANtastic." I heard a "spiffy" and "ducky" once each, and "livin' the dream" twice. I didn't ask "what kind of dream?" But personally, I prefer the salesperson classic, "UNBELIEVEABLE." Open ended. Prompting the asker to inquire more. But not me. I'm afraid that it will get worse with "dandy like cotton candy" or "peachy keen." Don't forget the dreaded "better than sliced bread."
So I asked on air for some creative answers to the questions. Once again, ya'll did not disappoint. In the spirit of the Geico "pretty happy" ads on TV
If I were any better, Brad and Angelina would be adopting me!
If I were a car, Jay Leno would be collecting me!
If I were a drug, I’d be illegal!
I’m so good, my feet are six inches off the ground!
I’m so good, the next hybrid car will run on me!
I’m better than Barney Rubble at a shoe convention!
I’m better than Joan Rivers at a plastic surgeon’s convention!
I’m so good, motivational speakers just show a picture of me and then leave.
Good, yet cheesy stuff. I have now been inspired to respond to the afore mentioned salespeople with, "Hungry! Time for you to buy me lunch!" To which THEY will respond again..."UNBELIEVEABLE!"
