Happy Halloween

Sorry, I've been a bad blogger lately. I currently do not have internet at home, and living where I do that even makes blogging from my phone hard. However I had to make a run into work today for something and figured I'd take a moment to share some Halloween goodness with you.

Some of my favorite music is from the Halloween season. Now before I continue, I have to warn you... I was a big gothic nerd child / punk kid/ rock chick for a hot minute, so some of this stuff might be loud and crass (lol not the band) and not what you would normally hear in an office or public, so be warned.

That being said, let's party.

"Bela Lugosi's Dead" by Bauhaus is by far one of the greatest and campiest songs ever. If this song doesn't make you want to eat some candy corn or carve a pumpkin, I quit.

"Marian" by Sisters of Mercy. Again another great song but this guy's voice just yells Halloween, spooky and delicious.

Christian Death covering the Velvet Underground. Delicious. There are better Christian Death songs, but I'll let you find those on your own. Mostly because I can't be responsible for the content. Ha ha.

Finally here's what I went as to a party last night. Yes I took this in my bathroom.

Have a great holiday. Call a cab if you need it.

So if you follow me on twitter you know that my good friend Teresa (aka @tlsquared) works here as well. After watching me jam my sort of expensive headphones (okay pretty darn expensive) into my purse day after day because I don't have a locker here or anything, so decided enough was enough and made me a bag for my "cans," as the radio folks like to call them.

This is so awesome. And better than the whole sticking them in a Crown Royale bag as radio jocks are want to do, because my headphones are too big for a standard Crown bag.

This has always been pretty funny to me since I pretty much have unlimited access to Crown bags since my stepmom works in a bar. I really should just start reselling them to other DJ's.

I went to the Seafare on Friday night.....

Went to Marti's for football on Sunday and saw a guy in bunny slippers.

Finished the very hot day up with an ice cold margarita. Yummy!

get some sleep.

This blog is brought to you by insomnia and my favorite thing in the world: Wikipedia.

Back when I was in grade school I was mad in love with this rap group 3rd Bass. I honestly loved their single "Pop Goes the Weasel," and really still do, it's totally in my iTunes right now.

Eventually I ended up working at the radio station that used to play this song for me constantly when I was 11 and 12 and by the magic of Facebook, this radio station is having a reunion next year, and I am BEYOND excited. And so when I couldn't sleep tonight, I started YouTube-ing old videos from that era and looking up stuff on Wikipedia. Because this is this digital version of warm milk and a boring book usually...

Anyway, I decided to Wikipedia 3rd Bass. Did you know that Prime Minister Pete Nice
is not only a baseball fan but co-owner in a sports bar in Boston? McGreevy's 3rd Base Bar is owened by Peter Nash and... wait... it gets better.... Ken Casey from the Dropkick Murphys, one of my all time favorite bands.

One can only assume this union means that Prime Minister Pete Nice is a Red Sox fan. And I have it on amazing authority (my own, while I was backstage sleeping on the couch) that Ken Casey, nicest man in the world.

What does any of this mean? Either the world is too small or I've always had really good taste. Or I need to sleep more. Either way here's some music to enjoy.....

p.s. do you know who plays Vanilla Ice in the 3rd Bass video? Yeah, Henry Rollins.

I'm your biggest fan, I'll follow you until you love me


When I was a kid my grandma worked at the Broadway, which is what Macy's is now. That was my first exposure to Hello Kitty. They had a Sanrio stand in the juniors department and because of that I had Hello Kitty in my life for as long as I can remember.

Later after Grandma Awesome retired, Hello Kitty migrated to Long's Drug stores and eventually to her own (now defunct) store in the same mall where the Broadway was. I pretty much own Hello Kitty everything and I owe my friendship with this feline all to my Grandma. Much like my tuna recipe, my love for going to the "drug store" for fun and probably my love for Avila Beach.

My Awesome Mama D wants to take me to this: Hello Kitty 3 Apples. I might die of happy. I'm just sayin'...

Happy Birthday Kitty! I know you're not real (hello, I'm 30!) but thank you for always being a part of my life.

random iPhone photo post

As I was going through my phone looking for something today, I realized I have a lot of pictures I haven't shared with you guys yet, so here they come.

Sunset in Avila Beach from a neighbor's deck

4th of July Brunch. Also the day after my 30th birthday party.

A little crab in a net out on the Avila Pier

The table at my 30th birthday.

From one of my favorite places for brunch where I grew up. If you're ever in Bakersfield, Mexicali it up.

i like food

So around what's normally quittin' time here at the radio station, a computer I need to do a really important job died. And I'm hungry. So here's pictures of food I've eaten before. Because I can't eat any now.

Both of these were from Sushi Ya in SLO.

This sushi was in Alaska. No joke.

This sushi was at Eagle Castle Winery in Paso during a bridal shower weekend.
SushiYa in SLO again. I love this place. I go there waaay too much.

Yeah, I'm still hungry. This isn't helping at all.

blast from the past

While not in this exact room, I forsee myself doing this later on today anyway. Just me and my boyfriend with my other boyfriend Radio, on a date. I'm such a hussy.

I like stuff and things

Yesterday was my first remote back in radio after my... vacation.

I went out to help the boys down the hall at Wild 1061 at the Culture Fest at Mitchell Park and I have to say I had a blast. I forgot how fun it is to meet people who like what you do, even though I don't really do anything on Wild but play Vanna White at remotes and make annoying radio commercials. Who wants to hear me sing "The Shack," again.. I mean here's some pictures from our event yesterday. Super fun time!

This little girl was awesome.

Another cool kid we met

prize wheel.

Anyway it was a lot of fun and I'm glad I went out to play! I haven't street teamed in a minute or twelve.

Happy Birthday

Today would have been my Grandma's birthday. It's been awhile but I still miss her every day and am currently growing one of her cacti in my yard. I had no doubt it would grow since Avila Beach was her favorite place in the world. Happy Birthday Grandma, I miss you!

It's been raining all day here on the Central Coast and while in some parts of the country this isn't news at all, here it's kind of an event. Especially a rain this hard and this long, as it is supposed to continue into tomorrow.

I've always said people in California really freak out too much when it rains, but can you blame us? Our roads don't really drain, we seem to always have mudslides and rock slides and we have to wear these funny little things called jackets... and shoes... what are those for again, and where do I find mine?

Oh right, there they are...

At any rate, I'll be enjoying the winterish weather while it's here. After all it gives me a reason to lace up these boots, so there you go.

Birthdays at the station

- Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone


So my Seattle Seahawks not only pulled it together this weekend and won a game, it was in fact another shut out. Praise be. Let's all dance around.

Adding to it this little gem that occurred before the start of the game?

Freakin' AMAZING.

So let's just skip talking about the Red Sox taking a dump all over themselves Sunday morning. The wounds are still too fresh.

p.s. If any one knows how to make this blogger template hold videos, I'd be really excited. I shrank the video down to the smallest youtube allows and this template layout is still getting all blown out. I may have to change my layout.

I'm starting to wonder if the Seattle Seahawks are mad at me or something. I mean come on you guys....

Week 4 - Colts 34, Seahawks 17

Between this screaming failure of a jeresy and the way you've been playing, my feelings are hurt guys.
