Sometimes the mind just wonders and the ink pen can merely tag along for the ride. Throw your hands up, scream and enjoy the ride!
RANDOM THOUGHTS FROM CARRIE’S BRAIN . . .
“I don’t boil my relatives.” I said that to a co-worker today as we were discussing our station Jet Ski giveaway.
Nikola Tesla was the inventor of radio, not Guglielmo Marconi. There, the air has finally been cleared. Get over it, Marconi fans!
Mental Floss is my absolute favorite website!
I think we should answer the phone, “Ahoy!” That is how Alexander Graham Bell wanted phones to be answered. He invented the telephone. Shouldn’t he have gotten a say in how they were answered. From now on if you call me I shall answer with a bright and cheery, “Ahoy!”
The number of requests that I get during my daily request show is completely dependent on the weather. Cold or rainy days = no ringing phone.
Lloyd Dobler is, quite possibly, the greatest movie character ever written.
I don’t care how old you are. Talking about poop will never cease to be funny.
If d.j. on your favorite radio station says, “Be caller number 10 (or 7 or 5 or 496 or whatever) right now to win this AWESOME prize,” chances are that the actual winner was caller number 3. D.j.’s are lazy, sometimes the phones are slow and the song is short, and we have to get the winner call on the air by the end of that song. If it’s a really really short song . . . suddenly caller number 1 is lucky caller number 10. sorry.
Most d.j.’s have people skills that suck! We are nerds that sit in a small studio listening to music and talking to a microphone everyday. We are like that weird cousin that you smile at but wonder if they were dropped on their head at birth.
Junior Mints are the greatest candy EVER!
At 4’10” I beat being a “little person” by a mere 2 inches . . . 4’8″ for females and 4’10” for males.
Mean people suck!
KSHE 95 in St. Louis, MO is the oldest FM rock station west of the Mississippi River . . . and the greatest rock station in the whole world!
The St. Louis Arch is 630 feet tall and 630 feet wide.
Does anyone ever actually check their voicemail?
The word “moist” is a horrible word. And the word “crotch” sounds like a cat hacking a hairball.
I dance in my studio when I am on air. Than goodness there is no webcam in the studio.
I adore the smell of freshly cut grass, especially if the mower went over a patch of wild onions.
Everything in the world needs to be colorful and sparkly!
I still haven’t forgiven William Petersen for leaving C.S.I and killing the show.
My current work-related goal is to make the afternoon guy laugh on air. He is completely undistractable. We’ve all tried to kill his concentration but he is a rock. There is no breaking him when he is on air, but I shall continue trying anyway.
Get ready to go into shock and call me a bad mother . . . I let my 8-year-old son use curse words. So what.
My feet are so small that I can buy my shoes from the kids section. Kids shoes are far cuter than adult shoes . . . and cheaper, too.
Combo words such as “staycation” need to just go away, like, now.
Just because a d.j. is in the studio and live on the air does not mean that we have any clue what is playing on the air.
Why is Kryptonite neon green?
The St. Louis Cardinals . . . the greatest baseball team EVER!
Two of the funniest things people will ever do . . . Try to imitate a weird sound that their car is making, and try to lick their own elbow. And GO!
When Noah build the Ark why did he have to invite spiders along for the ride? Couldn’t he have accidentally forgotten then from the passenger list? Spiders are horrible little creatures. Anything that small with that many legs is obviously evil. Look at how big elephants are and they only have 4 legs. What the hell?!?
Who was the first person to look at an artichoke and say, “There’s something worth fighting for and eating in there.” The same question goes for the first person to look at an alligator and think “Lunch!”
Cupcakes . . . AWESOME!
Is it possible for a person to suck their own spit?
This may be the absolute cutest video on youtube.
Office chairs that spin and have wheels are the perfect chair.
Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street?
Until next time . . .
