Stuck in ATX traffic...

Here's what I did stuck in traffic. I apologize up front for being lyrically challenged.  You would think a radio personality wouldn't have that issue, but I do.  If I don't know or remember it I tend to make up words.  Sometimes I think they are saying a certain word and then find out I was totally off when I look up the lyrics.  My honey Ted will catch me at times and ask.. What are you singing?  What was the word you just said... Come to find out I've been singing it off key wrong with some songs for years.  Oh well, it's all in the enjoyment. Music makes the soul Happy, and Nickelback was making me Happy during this moment.  I'm looking forward to their big show in ATX at the ATX 360 Amphitheater on Saturday night! 

I'm Ready to Rock!!!

Can you believe it's been 25 years?

One of my favorite movies, 'Pretty Woman', celebrates it's 25th Anniversary next Monday, March 23rd. Amazing how time flies since the movie... I graduated college, got married to my Honey Ted, expanded the family w/ Shih Tzu Huey, on a radio tour that has taken me to several cities, experienced loss through Hurricane Katrina, lost both of my parents, been having fun on Mix 94.7 in ATX for close to 9 years... this is just a few of the many things...Wow.. lots have happened in 25 years! Think about what you've done and been through in the past 25 years.... Now go enjoy making even more memories, which I hope has way more happy ones.

This is one of my favorite scenes in the movie. I have run across this type of treatment in stores before, and this scene nails it!  LOVE IT!

Are you in a 'Green Mood'?

I think if you have Green eyes you are covered for today. Although I didn't leave that to chance and went full on 'GREEN MODE'. No pinchers in my direction.  I'm 1/2 Irish, so that should cancel out not wearing green too, but again, no chances. I hope your St. Pattty's Day is a Happy & Safe one!
Here's some Irish ear candy that can stick w/ you! Sláinte!
