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??
According to TheStir.com, these 7 categories of posters cause us to skip right over the words you write. See what you think...or see if you're guilty. The radio DJ who wants you to point and click to their personal radio page didn't make the list. Neither did being a cheeseball on the air. (WHEW! That was CLOSE! )
1. The Roses & Unicorns Bragger: OMG. Is there anything worse than opening up your Facebook news feed and seeing the exact same people proclaim over and over again how picture perfect their life is? You know -- the people who never have anything remotely negative happen, because they always smell like fresh-picked strawberries and have baby unicorns living in their backyard. Don't get me wrong -- positivity is great. But there's a fine line between being positive and trying to rub your ever-so-perfect existence into everyone else's faces.
2. Debbie Downer: While the Roses & Unicorns friend is a real pain in the tush, the "my life and everything about it totally awful" friend is just as big a nuisance. Everyone runs into tough times, but does everything really have to be that bad all of the time? Strike a good balance between smiling and complaining if you want to be liked on Facebook.
3. Miss Mysterious: Ok. I've done the cryptic status update thing a couple times, which is surprising because I absolutely can't stand when other people do it. Doesn't it drive you crazy when your friends post something like, "OMG. Don't wanna get my hopes up, but my fingers are crossed!" (I'll never do that again. I swear. It's the WORST.)
4. Mr. Money Bags: C'mon, you know you have one or two of these somewhere on your friend list. How much do you hate the guy (or gal) who constantly puts price tags & labels on everything, from their million-dollar house to their BMW to the first class vacation they just took to Hawaii? We get it -- you're loaded. But there really are more important things in life.
5. The Serial Compliment Fisher: Yep. Not gonna lie. I'm guilty of this one too. Nothing makes you look more pathetic and desperate than begging for praise on Facebook. If I see "I can't believe my size 2 jeans fit again!" posted one more time, I'm going to scream.
6. The Super Opinionated Jerk: I'm already dreading plenty more of these popping up with the election looming a few months away. Nothing disappoints me more on Facebook than when someone plasters their political opinion out there for everyone to see, demands to be respected for it, but then has absolutely no room for letting other people have their own opinions in contrast. Double standards make me crazy.
7. The Hopeless Romantic: Every time I see someone post something about how perfect their husband or wife is and how they are so blessed and love them more than all the stars in the sky (or some sappy words like that), I roll my eyes and gag a little bit. Keep the mushy stuff (that may or may not be nothing but a cover up for your marital problems) off your Facebook status. Putting it out there for the world to see takes all of the romance out of it anyway.
