It’s a draggy Monday…with a twist.
Is this a big coffee? Riley just looked at my cup and said “Geez”. Why do I feel like this isn’t odd. Uh oh, have I entered a world where I’m making excuses for myself?
This morning was one of those mornings where there’s a lot to cover but it’s also the news we’ve been talking about over the weekend. Everyone has an opinion, that we want to hear and respect, which means we have to present the news in a way that isn’t biased. Try telling a story to your friend without voicing your feelings. It’s hard, right?
The verdict of the Zimmerman case (accused of murdering Treyvon Martin) came down on Saturday. He was found not guilty. You’re welcome to comment with your opinions. Beyonce heard the news just 30 minutes before going on stage at the Bridgestone Arena here in
Jim (our Jim) was summoned for jury duty and the judge asked him if the person on trial (I could be making some of this up right now so don’t quote me) asked Jim if the person was guilty or not. Jim’s response basically was that he hadn’t heard any details to determine whether or not he was. The judge told him that was the wrong answer because everyone is innocent until proven guilty. Riiiiiiight. In a perfect world, yes. In our world, no. I’d be the worst on jury duty. I look at someone and I’m like, “GUILTY!”. No, seriously. It’s so judgy of me.
Cory Monteith. Ugh. What awful news over the weekend. I think we were all shocked. We played ‘Don’t Stop Believin’’ as a tribute song (voted on by people visiting our Facebook page – watch below) and I had to turn it down. Why is this so hard to digest? It’s just an unfortunate and terribly sad situation. Are you a Glee fan?
Riley is sugarless. She avoided sugar all weekend and again this morning. This is serious business. It’s hard waking up before the sun and not shoving any form of energy into your mouth to keep your eyes open. It’s Operation Sexy.
Oh my gosh, so much is happening. I’m trying to avoid the cream on Jim’s face. Yeah, I said it. Twinkies are back.
Tomorrow, we’re having Bruno Mars fans come in to stuff Twinkies in their mouth and try to sing some Bruno music. They auditioned this morning and they both can sing. Let’s offer a challenge, shall we. The two of them seem like fun people. If they get Bruno Mars tickets (Bridgestone Arena on the 17th of August), they will be looking for a plus one. Wanna make a new friend?
Uh oh, there’s a green screen in studio. Are we doing the weather? I’m scared to ask what it’s being used for. They are screaming. Why are they screaming? Oh no!
iHeart Radio Music Festival.
Did you hear the lineup?
I said DID YOU HEAR THE LINEUP?!?!?
These are the moments it’s not fun to be a radio station employee. We can’t win tickets.
You can. Deets HERE.
I know I’ve left out some stuff today.
Talk soon, my friends.
