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??
Here's an EXCELLENT Top Ten List...And if you've already bought a gift for that special someone, it's not too late to supplement!
1) Sing your heart out. The glory (or disgrace) that is karaoke tends to be reserved for nights out with some Buds, but what better way to bond with your beau than rocking out with a room full of strangers? Sing a love ballad to your lady fair, or belt out some hard rock while he plays back-up air guitar. Make it goofy, make it fun and most of all, make it memorable.
2) Feel the rush. It may not make much logical sense, but it doesn't have to. Studies show that an adrenaline rush, or shared harrowing experience, creates mutual attraction. In other words, jump out of a plane together! Seriously, though, a skydiving date not only makes for an amazing memory; it's also an incredible bonding experience. Unless a parachute fails to open.
3) Roleplay. Sometimes the best way to get to know the person you know best is to pretend to be someone else. It's also a whole lot of fun. Tour some fancy real estate properties with fake high-roller personas, or plan a hotel lobby meet-cute for your alter egos (whether they check into a room later is up to you).
4) Chill out. The fact that Valentines Day falls in the dead of winter rules out romantic picnics and skimpy dresses, but winter offers its own wonders. Bundle up and have an outdoor adventure. Heck, even a brisk hike will leave you feeling exhilarated (and ready for a serious cuddle sesh).
5) Spice up your life. Is the road to the heart really through the stomach? It is when you take a cooking class together. Chopping, dicing, kneading, and baking will conspire to heat things up bigtime. Plus, you'll walk away with a new meal to make for at-home date nights. The gift that keeps on giving!
6) Saddle up. There will always be something sexy about the Wild West. The terrain, the horses, the outlaws. Get your cowboy fantasy on with a stay at a dude ranch. You'll ride on the open range, dine on delicious meals, and then cozy up by a rustic fire or gaze at the big-sky stars under a blanket for two.
7) Step out. There's some good old-fashioned romance in a night of dancing. But these days, unless you're on a certain reality TV show, dancing is a bit of a lost art. Dance lessons will let you tap into your inner Fred and Ginger and get you bonding, trusting, and communicating in brand new ways. Whether you choose the drama of tango, the eroticism of samba or the heat of mambo, dancing together is about subtle connection and communication. (And being able to show off at your cousin's wedding doesn't hurt either.)
8) Spread the love. Get closer to each other by doing good for others. Whether you spread cheer at the local senior center, dig in at the community garden, or fly off to help rebuild Haiti, you both give and gain when you volunteer together. And all that goodwill will bring you even closer to each other.
9) Let yourself go. Kids, frenzied schedules, stressful jobs; life can often be too much. Let it all melt away with a spa trip. Get dirty in a mud bath for two, relax over a couples massage, take a yoga class and soak in a hot tub. At the end of the day you'll be refreshed, renewed, and ready for, ahem, anything.
10) Jump. Remember that adrenaline rush? Same thing goes for physical activity. Really, anything that gets you sweaty can get you, well, hot. We're not talking about the boring old gym, but a trampoline park is fun, physical, and guaranteed to give you both a case of the giggles (yourtango.com)
