Believe it or not my very first concert was The Monkees and Weird Al Yankovic. I know, kind of weird, except I’ll put good money on the fact that at least a few of you will read this and say “Me too!” Because it was a pretty popular tour that year. I was in the third grade and a pretty avid Monkees fan (thanks Nick ay Night) so when they came around my parents took us. This would be the beginning of a very passionate and life-long love for live music. More

I Remember You, I like to think, is a pretty sacred song for most rocker chicks. At least it was at the time when it came out. And like many rocker chicks my age I have many special memories of I Remember You playing over the course of my teen years. Unfortunately most of them were replaced by one single memory from 1998 that tends to override the others.
Picture it, Modesto 1998. I was working the late shift at Rock 95. The other DJs in the building, Kat Country and The Hawk, were zoning out in their own studios. It was the middle of the night after all. More

Now don’t get me wrong; Allen was interested in the details of planning our wedding, they just weren’t as important to him as they were to me. This is the case with most grooms I think, and was never an issue with me. He was always willing to give me an opinion when asked and always helped in making the major decisions.
One decision was something I had put at the bottom of my to-do list, we needed to get a song list together for the DJ. All the other songs (parents dance, father/daughter, wedding party dance, etc) I had chosen when I was around 10 years old, so they were covered. What we were stuck on was our first dance. More

Happy weekend kids! So it was kind of a quiet week. I had only one kid here all day everyday for the whole week. The rest were hit and miss, only here for a couple of hours, if at all. A very nice break. That’s the thing about doing small family daycare. The odds are at some point during the year you’ll end up with a quiet day…
Other news this week, I officially have my General Hospital blog up and running. I was a little surprised at how much traffic generated from day one. Not huge or anything, but I got twenty hits the first day! People love their General Hospital I guess! I was inspired to start it after applying for a guide position at About.com running their GH website. I didn’t get it, and was a bit disappointed (obviously the GH site is a decent money maker with the amount of traffic it generates). So I figured why not just make my own GH site, and see what I can do with it. The next time an opportunity comes up for a soap related site, I’ll be all set. Besides, I think some small part of me hopes that the writers over at GH will see my complaints and suddenly start writing better material…. It could happen…
Speaking of writing, it looks like I may be getting to interview The Coreys!!! (shriek! giggle! swoon!) That’s right, little ol me just might be interviewing both the Feldmaster and The Haimster for reality shack for the second season premier of A&E’s The Two Coreys. I should be getting a screener of the show and then if all works out get to interview both Coreys, of course the will not do interviews together, so it’ll be two separate interviews…. What do I ask? These are guys who I thought the sun rose & set with as a kid. I even saw Feldman live & in concert at Stoneridge Mall!!! Heck, my son is watching Goonies right now! I hope it works out! Keep your fingers crossed! In the mean time, hit up Reality Shack to catch up on the first season of The two Coreys and to get your hilarious fill of all things reality show related!
I wrote about my experience seeing Corey Feldman in concert over on JamsBio…
Well I’m officially a columnist for JamsBio’s Biolog! I got an email yesterday. It’s a paid thing (W-9 and everything!). I’m not about to quit the day job or anything, but it’s something!! I can actually say “I’m a columnist”. So I’m no Carrie Bradshaw or anything, but it’s a nifty start… I’m also getting paid a little extra to help load up their new game they added to the site too. It’s terribly addictive I recommend trying it immediately…
I am an Entertainment Weekly junkie, and through it have found a new BFF (Ok, so we’ll never actually meet or anything, but in my mind she’s my new BFF) Diablo Cody! She is hilarious, and when it comes to taste in pop culture I think we share the same brain… In her column, “Binge Thinking” in this weeks issue she talked about the return of 90210! Specifically the coup that is the CW getting both Tori Spelling & Jennie Garth to reprise their legendary Beverly Hills roles for the spin off coming to the CW this fall. Every 30-ish gal our age knows that this is huge news. My pop culture world would only be complete if they somehow made it known to the 90210 masses that Dylan has left Kelly & returned to be with Brenda in Paris. In your face Kelly Taylor!

ICK! I’m sick! We’re all sick actually, except Cheyanne. Patrick has a monster cough, that kept us up ALL night, I’ve got swollen glands in my throat that feel like golfballs (why did I get my tonsils out when I was 20?), and Allen stayed home from work today with a fever. So I’m sick, I’m tired from no sleep, and of course PMS like a bitch outta hell. What a day, and it had to be the first day back from a long weekend too…
I started a new blog on wordpress (look at my links). Over the weekend I found a whole collection of poetry and stuff that I’d written in junior high and high school. I was pretty pleased with my teenage angsty self, and decided I’d start a little blog to publish it. I only wish I’d dated them, or at least put the names of who I was writing about… It’s funny how someone ruled my world enough for to write a poem about them, only twenty years later not have a clue about who which poem is about. Teenagers…
I finished Snuff! What a book. Man only Chuck P. could turn a group of characters as screwed up as these folks, and make you love them. I’m always a little about books that are about porn, but Chuck has never let me down before. I had the book finished in just about 2 days. Nice, but out there, surprise ending, as always. I say if you;re looking for a good read about sex, porn, gang bangs, and Snuff films, this one is for you. OK, that sounds bad, but trust me it’s so bad, it’s good… I give it an A!
What a crappy day. I could only think of one JamsBio story to link up to this post, that seems to fit my very crappy day.
That’s it I’m going to bed now.
