A Bunch Of Thank Youz

We raised $1118.00 For The American Cancer Society!

This could not have been done without the help of some very important people!

Lisa: My daughter who not only helped me plan a luau, for 25 people. Helped clean the house, decorated, moved furniture, made food, and entertained guests... also took the last 6 hours of the thon for me when my migraine headache kicked in. I love you more than cake.

Derrick: My son, for all the great song picks when I was able to go live on the station. For helping me get everything cleaned up and set up, and helping me today to get out of bed to make these posts! I love you more than chocolate.

Luka: For all of the work she put in at the station to make blogathon work for us. From the schedule to the bumpers, to all the camtastic fun and games she provided during the thon! You rock my socks!

Jen: I know you just wanted to be under the air conditioning, but you blogged for a huge portion of the thon while you were here on air, and that was great. All, while bar tending! I could not have done that without you! I love you more than your salsa!

Monty: For just being one of the sweetest, funniest, best friends I could have in the whole wide world, and just for being you! I love you more than dead monkey dessert!

Jeckles: For making me laugh at myself... and you... but mainly me. Luv ya!

Pan-Raven: Everything you did for the station, the bumpers, the fun, and the general laughter you provide me every day! You are super awesome with sprinkles!

SG: Even though you weren't able to come down and be part of the madness, you called me 115 times during the day. You made me laugh, and you made sure I wasn't having a melt down, and for that I *heart* you more than Monkeys!

Clark: For being a great dad to Derrick, a great friend to me, and the best station support I could ask for... ready to be a jock now? *grin*

DJ Toxik: For taking the last shift of blogathon and rocking the house!

This year I would like to also thank the new friends that we made at blogathon!

Michael: We had a lot of fun with you on the blogs, and the station! I hope we will see a lot more of you!

Colin: Did you ever end up naked? We really loved watching you rock out to the station on the cam! I can't wait for more colin adventures!

Yoshi: I knew you before, but this year was better, and we had more fun! I think you are turning Japanese, I really think so!!

To All those people who sponsored me this year! YOU rock the hardest, because you gave YOUR money to help someone else!

Now...with that... The Ice Palace will be closed for a while. I'll miss you! xoxox

Blogathon, Block Party, Extravaganza Somethingorother!

Yeah yeah you heard me... er read me

Yes, I did it again. I planned a party to go with the blogathon. Because I can never do anything simple. I have to go and do blogathon, the radio show, AND a block party barbeque that has turned into a tiki luau for 25 people. Oh and did I mention SG will be attending the 24 hours festivities?

I didn't want to piss of my neighbors (west side rulez! yo! <----I totally sound gansta there huh?) so I decided to invite all of them to the party except the thugs. I am all about making a statement, so I figure if I live through the weekend, I will have made a point. I did invite "my body guards" Jen & Juana, so I should be ok. Everyone else is pretty much on there own! *giggle*

I still have to get all the food & booze, prepare some of the food, last minute cleaning, relocate the tiki bar(which will include some dis assembly), and finish last minute decorations all before 6am on Saturday morning. I figure the only way I can achieve this little task is if I leave work pretty soon.

There is only one problem with this little theory. Some clown in bright yellow crocs (OMG just throw them away NOW!) is moving to India, and I have to wait for him to have all of his CRAP loaded up and delivered to my warehouse before I can escape. That means I may have to work a full day. I know... whatever will I do? There are some days I hate my job... this is one of those days.

In other news...
* My hamster I got for my birthday STILL wants to eat my face off.
* Yesterday SG only called me 10 times. (do you think he's over me?) Edit: Make That 11
Blogathon is less than 48 hours away - sponsor me!!!!
* I am out of Watermelon Jolly Ranchers.

Somebody please kill me...

I am still freakin' here! It's almost 3pm. I wanted to be gone by 2pm. When my drivers gets here to unload I am going to point to the floor and say lock the door on your way out, good luck! It's just not fair that my bosses are drunk at the fair, the gal that runs the other office is white water rafting, and I am stuck here waiting for time to tick tick tick away. I mean If I had something to do it would be different... but I don't. DAMN DAMN DAMN... I am going crazy!

East Side Vs. West Side

In my apartment complex we are not allowed to have pets like dogs and cats. I know. I tried that when I first moved in, got busted, and had to get rid of my cat... so now I am bitter. Mainly because, how can I become the crazy cat lady without a cat? Seriously. So, now when anyone else tries to sneak a pet in I am the pet-nazi and I rat them out to the manager. It wouldn't be so bad if the neighbor who currently has a cat was oh.. I dunno... NICE. However, they are not.

They let their toddler run about in the front yard all day and night with a golf club, so he was affectionately nicknamed "Tiger Woods". TG is a really cute kid and I want to like him, but his parents dress and act like thugs, so it's hard. His mom turns him out the back door and just kind of lets him do what he wants. At three years old. This can include a plethora of things like, hitting the bushes, windows and cars with a golf club. This can also include squishing frogs and lizards to death in your hand or with a hammer. Last but not least this can also include screaming at the top of your lungs at 10pm at night because your friend can't come out and play. This makes me want to choke, him AND his parents. The last cat they had got hit by a car because they let it run out in the busy street, what did they do with it? Threw it in the garbage dumpster... geez I had a funeral and cried over my dead hamster... these people are evil.

My next door neighbors go out into the courtyard and set up a little play are for their little girl, that includes a little baby pool and sprinklers for the kids to play in. My son joins them all the time. They, AND their children are nice, considerate and polite... everyone used to get along where I live... Until Friday night.

So there I am on the phone with SG, outside by my car when I see the nice neighbor husband go over to the thug's apartment. I then hear shouting. I slowly crept closer as I shushed SG, and told him something was going down in his old apartment. I sat there and listened. Nice neighbor husband asked the thug wife to keep their cat inside (you remember the cat they are not 'spose to have in the FIRST PLACE?) because it had been coming into their backyard and spraying on their daughter's toys. Thug wife tells nice neighbor husband it's not happening, the cat is too young to spray, she won't keep it in the house and the manager knows about the cat. The nice neighbor husband says ok fine if I see it in my yard again I am going to throw it over the fence. (I frankly think this is a fair deal myself) This enrages thug wife. Nice neighbor husband goes back in his apartment and nice neighbor wife goes over to thug wife to try and smooth things over and work out something. Thug wife proceeds to tell nice neighbor wife that she doesn't want to start trouble with her or else, and says you better leave me alone or I will fuckin' kill you.

Now things are really getting good, but before the bullets start flying I went inside and started texting Monty about SG. The next morning nice neighbor wife came over to talk to me to tell me what happened and asks if I had heard anything. Of course I had, who didn't? LOL... so the war of East Side Vs. West Side of the complex has begun.

This weekend is Blogathon, and I always have a little party to help keep me awake, and make it fun. This year we decided to have a barbeque in the courtyard and invite the west side neighbors! My blogathon barbeque may turn into a rumble... either way it should be fun!

Speaking of Blogathon why haven't you sponsored me!? Come on you KNOW you want to!

SG Update: He has currently ended things with his former girlfriend, he calls me 17 times a day (not that I mind) and thinks I am beautiful (also I do not mind). So... who knows right?

The Return Of Shirtless Guy

Two Years Later...

So There I was checking my myspace, and I received an e-mail from someone named Jesse. Now The only Jesse I know is Lisa's "not boyfriend" so I assumed it was from him. I opened it up to find that it was shirtless guy! If you don't know all about shirtless guy, go read my post from two years ago. He had found me via our high school alumni page. Apparently we had gone to school together but didn't know it. Well, at least I never knew. He's probably been stalking me since then!!!

I see he's in a relationship, and they have a dog together (cause you know having a dog together makes it real) so I assume he's happy and was just saying hi. WRONGO! Yeah about the third e-mail he lets me know he made a mistake with his current girlfriend... and is homesick. Then it happens he gives me his phone number "because he hates typing". I don't call him. I figure I will give him my number, and nothing will come of it. *insert dramatic pause here* He called.

Ok I can't get guys who claim they love me and want to live happily ever after to call me, and this guy lives in another state, has a girlfriend,and stalks me... What the crap? 

So The conversation is fun and light, and I don't flirt with him at all, because he STILL technically had a girlfriend. He gave me the story about why he shouldn't be with her, and why it was a mistake, etc etc.. I just said "uh huh" a lot. He just kept telling me how much he liked me when he lived here, and how I wouldn't even look at him, and when he tried to talk to me I would run away. He said that I would sprint from my apartment to my car. (I quite possibly did do that) I just never thought he was interested in me. His last girlfriend looked like Malibu Barbie, and *I* don't so it just never dawned on me. Plus his grandfather was the manager of my apartment so ya know what if things went bad? I mean I could have been forced to move from my oh so fabulous 1970's style townhouse that I love so much.
The longer we talked the more I found out we have in common and the more I wished I hadn't been so afraid of him when he lived here. However, the fact remains he has a girlfriend, and until he doesn't (if that day comes) we can only be friends.
Things happen for reasons...


...The risk of being diagnosed with cancer and the risk of dying of cancer have decreased since the early 1990s? Fewer than half the people diagnosed with cancer today will die of the disease. Some are completely cured, and many more people survive for years with a good quality of life, thanks to treatments that control many types of cancer

That's GREAT news. However, cancer is not one disease, but many different diseases with different causes. For that reason, one breakthrough "cure for cancer" is probably not likely to come along. There probably won't be one date in history when people remember that the cure for cancer was announced - just as infectious diseases weren't conquered on one particular day. Instead, every year will bring more and more cures for more and more types of cancer. 

THIS can't be done without YOUR help. 
The odds are Cancer will touch you, your family or someone you know in your lifetime...Take five minutes today to sponsor me in Blogathon 2007. ALL The proceeds go directly to 
The American Cancer Society, and your donation may save a life someday...Maybe yours.

I never want to see another person suffer the way I watched my father suffer from Cancer...Won't you help? Take the money you were going to spend on that cheeseburger for lunch, and help someone who is too sick to even enjoy a cheeseburger...donate now!

Me And My Gang...

August 2nd I will be 6th row for Rascal Flatts! WOO HOO!

Now many of you know that the next week is the start of fair time here in my area. I do some of my best blogging during the fair. It usually involves some fruity blinkie drinks, fanny packs and some craziness that may or may not lead to my arrest. I have never gone to the fair with Juana before so it's likely I will end up in handcuffs. I can only hope that this is something kinky and not sitting in jail watching Juana puke on herself. Cause that would be um... gross.

I know, why would I risk all of this at my age? Well... she has offered me a ticket to Rascal Flatts, 6th row center. Yes, I love country music, and yes I love Rascal Flatts, and yes I love the fair. So I said HELL YEAH!

Helpful Moving Advice
If you are moving to London, and you have important papers that you are going to need, don't pack them in a box, give them to the mover and ask for them the day before your crap gets sent overseas. Especially if you look like Malibu Barbie, and you are as dumb as a box of rocks.

1. No, I will NOT stay open late because you were stupid and unprepared.
2. No, we will not open a lift van with 150 screws in it to get out 1 carton at 4:45 pm.
2. No, we will not let you go rummage through a packed container because your crap MAY be in there
3. No, we will not let you wander about in our warehouse in flip flops (only *I* can do that)
4. No, we will not do any of this for free.
5. ...and when I give directions that include the word driveway, do not question the word like I made it up. I didn't... it's a REAL word.
You know since you go to Cal Poly(she has mentioned it 4 times- like I care or something.) and all I'd think you would know that!!!
6. I can tell YOU don't eat by the hip bones poking out of your pants, but my son does and I need to get him some lunch so don't come during my lunch hour!!

Kill me now!

Free Ice Cream!

I almost didn't make it to ZooFari this year!!! Free Ice cream stations, sundaes, yogurt, and root beer floats... all you can eat for 3 hours, at the zoo... what more can you ask for?

You see I was up much too late drinking too much wine with the MPYR Girls. We were having a little webcam slumber party, complete with wigs and a drinking game. I haven't laughed so hard in so long! I sure needed that though.

I think it all started with the Triumvirate of Evil (Luka, Diz, And PanRavenDora). They decided they were going to do a little thing called Frunk Friday on the air for Friday The 13th. They ended up getting on their webcams, and doing a round robin of DJ'ness. I ended up on cam in a pink wig & hat drinking wine out of the bottle. I know... you all are thinking C L A S S Y, but J pointed out that glasses are for pussies. I think that was right about the time I proposed to him.... I'm not sure. It's all a blur. Monty popped in and provided us with some awesome tunage, even though she was neither drunk nor on cam. We added a few of our listeners, "Bacon Boy", and it all went down hill from there.

I ended up falling sleep in my contacts (that since the eye injury I shouldn't be wearing for a while anyway) and when I woke up it felt like my eye had glass in it. It felt worse than the first time! Oh yeah and I had a wicked wine hangover that made me feel kinda poopy. OY!

I went back to bed and nursed myself back to some sort of human-like state. I missed my radio show, The Hallmark Ornament premiere, and may favorite show with the cute guy that loves hash. However I was not going to miss my chance to eat tons of free ice cream and see the monkeys at the zoo. I won those ZooFari tickets fair and square and I worked hard for them! Plus I knew that my DJ friend Chad would be wandering around and this would be a good chance to catch up and hang out with a cute guy.

Things Happen For Reasons...

...And Sunday's Drama was meant to be.

OK So It still sucked and all... However, it's amazing what 4 days, and 17 e-mails can do to change your opinion of someone! LOL 

I'm sure BB would be a catch for someone with no opinions, someone who would never debate him, and sit around lounging at his feet telling him how perfect and right he is all day. I'm NOT that kind of a girl. So I'm glad that he left the station the way he did. Like a big bold peacock flouncing his tail feathers and showing us all his true colors. 

The drama was his own doing, and now maybe I understand a little more about this person, and what a bad choice it would have been to stay emotionally involved with someone who believes he is right 99% of the time. 

The station that I proclaimed I hated, has created a safe haven now that he has gone. I am surrounded by friends, and people who really care about me, and the future of the station. They left on their own. I won't pretend we were "cutting dead weight" or anything like that! We had some good people who chose a different path that will ALWAYS be welcome back here at The Empire. We will decide the future of MPYRRadio together, as a big family of people who love music. It's ok, we are all little soldiers on a great big boat sailing off into the future... a new beginning. 
Aye laddie!

Have you sponsored me yet?

I am going to be blogging for The American Cancer Society on July 28th. I will be posting a blog every 30 minutes for 24 hours straight. Not only that but we will be broadcasting live for MORE than 24 hours since we have decided to bring some great music to The "B-Schedule" people as well.

Cha Cha Cha Changes...


I give up. I had hoped that "some day" BB(British Boy) and I could maybe start over and see where that goes. Last night I was feeling really good about things. He invited me to play EQII with him, and he told me he missed chatting and hanging out with me. Everything was great. We were talking about how we missed each other's company, and that neither of us had any expectations... and then BLAM... out of no where I say something that changes the course of history forever.

When I spoke those fateful words, I had no idea I was making him hate me. Making his blood run cold. You see when we originally broke up, I sent out an email to my friends who happened to be DJ's (on MPYRRadio) letting them know I was ok, what had happened and the station was fine, BB wasn't going anywhere. I wasn't going anywhere, etc etc... It was done so that no one would panic and take sides. I didn't send it to all of the DJ's as I wrote it as a personal letter, with station info in it. The three DJ's that were left off that mailing were BB, His Family, and best gal pal. I figured if he wanted to tell them we had split up, it was his place. I felt like I would have been overstepping my bounds had I sent that to them as well as it was truly not a station update. I mentioned this in passing last night as we spoke on the phone. He grew very silent and then said he had to go to bed. I knew something was wrong so I asked him. He then spoke words I never wanted to hear.

"I resign from the station, effective immediately."
I felt chills, and my stomach did big flip flops. My heart sank, and I tried to explain it wasn't a "station E-mail", to no avail. He wouldn't listen to me, he kept saying that he wanted no part of a station where people don't come to his shows because he broke up with me. I tried to explain that wasn't the case as far as I knew. He told me to take care and hung up.

I couldn't sleep last night. I kept thinking how when I got out of bed this morning, it was all going to somehow be better... but it wasn't. He posted his resignation on the forums, and e-mailed me that he has no desire to be part of this anymore.

What hurts the most, is right when I got my best friend back, he doesn't even want to speak to me anymore. He has deleted everyone and everything to do with MPYR Radio, or me. He won't speak to me, he won't answer my last e-mails, he's done with me. Like I never existed.

I hate this station. I hate that I ever started it. I hate that I hate it... but I do. I hate that I hurt my best friend... but I did. Now here I am again... Brokenhearted Part 2

The only good that has come out of this is that I found out who my true friends are.
