We take our jobs very seriously.
We research, we…okay, we read magazines, browse celebrity new sites, watch viral videos and listen to music. We also talk about our lives. That’s our job. OUR JOB! Nuts, I tell ya. This is the only job on the face of this planet where you can buy magazines every week and call it work.
Getting up at the buttcrack of dawn means that caffeine is extremely important to us. This is why I post about coffee… a lot. We’re looking for a good fit for us. Is it using the work coffee brewer with our own coffee? Is it buying a new one just for us to use? You can see the type of issues we struggle with on a daily basis. Phew. It makes me tired thinking about all the lives we’re saving and impacting on a daily basis.
Woody brought in coffee, yesterday, from a big name coffee shop and it’s just bitter. Not his fault. We’ve gotta try to see what works, right?
Without skipping a beat, he mentioned a local coffee shop that he loves and said he’d make a special trip to get the “goods”.
Ahhhhh yeahhhhh! It’s a Just Love morning for us. No, we aren’t getting paid to say this. It’s all real life. For realz, as I like to say. (By adding a ‘Z’, it makes me sound more authentic, right?)
Riley is heading out of town today and will be gone for the weekend so Jim is watching her dog, Pink. In order to get acquainted, Riley brought her in yesterday to do the ol’ house switcharoo.
Jim took her home and had an idea to introduce Pink to his greyhound, Dutch. They played in the back yard and did totally fine…until the cat noticed. Jim’s cat pulled a move from the Matrix and went airborne with only Pink in her sight. Jim unleashed his inner ninja and blocked the cat from reaching the dog. The picture is proof of his hero status. Riley will be buying him alcohol…and lots of it.
Everything turned out fine because not long after that, Jim and Pink napped together. First day and they’re already sleeping together? I guess Jim’s a sure thing.
Just because. It’s so Riley. ‘Tis why we lurrrrve her.
Oh emmmmm geeee! I walked into work today and this was waiting for me.
This can only be a Woody thing. Either that, or Patrick truly signs his name with a heart and that would be just wrong.
Backing things up again. Patrick is the engineer I talked about in the blog yesterday OFF AIR! Oh lawdy lawdy. Woody and Jim actually read my words. Uh oh. Maybe I should be a little bit more professional. Wait. Nah.
Patrick looks a lot like my first serious boyfriend. We dated for a long time through high school and even a little bit after. You know how emotionally charged everything is when you’re in high school? Everything is big, serious, dramatic, etc etc etc. Well, this guy and I dated through all those emotions. Whenever I see Patrick, our engineer, my brain tries to make him into my ex boyfriend. It feels weird and I don’t speak like a normal human being to him because it’s like a stranger knows all my secrets…but he doesn’t. You following me, here? Please tell me you are. I don’t even know how to explain it any differently.
Well, talking to Woody and Jim off air yesterday, I’m telling them all of this.
They brought me in this morning to ask about my little situation. THEN THEY BROUGHT PATRICK IN. I about died! WHY DIDN’T ANYONE TELL ME THIS WAS HAPPENING?!?! I’m all sweaty, red and have to face this issue that I wouldn’t have told him face-to-face.
AAAAGGGGHHHHH! Now things are weird. Video HERE.
During the morning, Woody, Jim and Riley are in the on-air studio. I’m in an adjoining studio working on…well…this blog. I do other things but it’s not as much fun to talk about. Jim just came in and asked me if I had sticky notes. Do. I. Have. Sticky. Notes? Duh. I also have paperclips, thank you cards, a calendar, folders, an expanding file system, pens, pencils and binder clips. I carry it with me every day. I’m a walking office and I obsess over it. Back to school supplies are the focus in the stores right now. To me, that’s better than Christmas!
Have an awesome weekend. We'll be back on Monday...you lucky people, you.
