daylight savings time

daylight savings time begins soon. yay! i’m so excited. i love the extra hour of sleep. 🙂

what annoys me, no. 302485

when people with full carts run to get ahead of me and my two items in the self-checkout lines at the grocery store. go to a freakin cashier. if i had time to stand behind you, i wouldn’t go through the self-checkout myself.

mixing and mingling

i did my first live remote yesterday. i was with one of the co-hosts of our morning show at the chamber of commerce’s annual business expo. it was a lot of fun, though nervewracking for me. i volunteered to do it because i always talk with a script and i want to learn how to be on-air without one. it’s really hard, people! but, a lot of what i did was interviewing people at the expo, so i was in my element in that respect.

i also worked an hour at our booth giving out water bottles and signing people up for our bonus card. it was fun getting to see people i deal with regularly as well as meeting new people and some of our listeners!

world series: game 1

what a game last night. i guess it was more batting practice for the red sox than a game, with a final score of 13-1. the 5th inning lasted 34 minutes. unbelievable. and that included three walked-in runs in a row.

i think this series is the sox’s to lose.

loyalty

former new york mayor and lifelong yankees fan rudy guiliani said yesterday he’s hoping the boston red sox win the world series. he says he wants an american league team to win. obviously it was purely a political move, as he was speaking in boston. there is some major hatred between the two teams and the fact that if you’re a die hard yankees fan you don’t cheer for the red sox under any circumstances, and same goes for red sox fans. it’s like us here in atlanta — we *hate* the mets. if the mets were in the world series there is no way we would want them to win, even if they were representing the national league. that’s what happens when you’re a true baseball fan.

that said, i’m really excited about the world series starting tonight. i think it’ll be a great one. at this point, i don’t know who i want to win. i really like the red sox, and i consider them one of my favorite teams, but i also like the fact that the rockies weren’t even expected to make the playoffs and here they are with 21 wins in their last 22 games. i’ll be happy with whoever wins, i guess. i think the red sox will pull it off though. they have strong pitching and hitting, where the rockies have only good hitters. i couldn’t tell you the name of one of their starting pitchers.

it’s going to be a great week. i love postseason baseball.

wordless wednesday: privacy, please
