Guest blogger Jim here, while Tawsha is in the happiest place on earth... her panic room. Actually she's at Disney with her husband and son and looks to be having a great time.
For the record, none of us know exactly when she's coming back.
In her stead, Intern Savannah has been manning the phones and keeping us humming along. Today is her 21st birthday!! Before she went away, Tawsha shopped for us and got her the perfect gift. Liquor themed/flavored jellybeans and bath beads!! It's awesome because Savannah is 8.5 months pregnant and can't drink on her 21st birthday. But she did say, "I can buy a gun instead!".
Woody made it fun by putting her gift bag in an old box of malt liquor.
And because it's her birthday, we excused her for saying the word "balls" during prime "take the kids to school commute time". We were all talking about Ariel Castro, the guy who kidnapped those 3 women. He killed himself in jail. She said, he didn't have the balls to do time confined like he made those women do. Good point.
Woody, of course, wondered if this man's name has tarnished Ariel the Little Mermaid. That movie is one of the best of all time IMHO. That's when I busted out "A Part of This World" as Ariel Castro in hell... "Look at this stuff isn't it neat.... damn it's hot down here!"
I was still miffed after cooking dinner last night. The recipe my wife Jenn laid out for me was for enchiladas. It took 2 hours for me to prep! And then 20 minutes to bake. and 2 minutes to eat. Ugh.
Woody is binge watching Breaking Bad. I'm not trying to spoil anything for him as I'm caught up in real time. He did find this great thing on the AMC website that let's you make this:
Woody is about to close on the refi of his house. His wife is in California, so they've been waiting for her to send back the power of attorney so they can finish things. This led to Will Worthington at Total Media Mortgage questioning if he really does have a wife. Woody says he does, but she's in a freezer in his basement. He always pays the electric bill so the neighbors won't find him out.
Riley is trying to get rid of all her LSU stuff because she only got it to make her ex happy. She's got lamp toppers, plates, jerseys. She hates LSU now.
Riley was extra feisty today due to copious amounts of Red Bull and coffee.
We met with more prospective interns from Vol State and MTSU. Paul and Stephanie. They seem like good candidates. Paul wants to be on tv someday and Stephanie wants her own talk show. At some point, Stephanie and Intern Savannah confessed that they secretly want to be librarians and be surrounded by books all day.
That's all for today. I'm off to climb a tall ladder that scares me to replace floodlights and clean gutters. I found this video to help me through it. Nevermind the old guy swearing. Listen to the little kid singing. IT'S THE SCARIEST THING I'VE EVER HEARD!!!
