"I'm spinning round the room in awe" ryan adams

damn, its been yet another 60 minutes. I cant tell you what happened between there and here.
My eyes are burning though and I have been leaning on my left arm for way to long so now that side of my body is numb and I am kinda contorted on this chair. Which I have managed to save myself from falling off it several times now. I am atop of a metal and carpet floor here in the radio station and going from the computer to the cd players I push off the counter and wheel my chair across the room. Unfortunately I have to cross the threshold of the metal plate and carpet. Nearly tumbling to the ground everytime. But I haven't. I did lose my shoes about 35 minutes ago though. They are somewhere in the hallway.
SO I made coffee. No, I heated up coffee. In our microwave that is from 1987. I hope I don't start glowing green from the nuclear waves. But my mug would not fit into the small confinement of the energy box. So I found a cubelike container that fit. I had sugar. But nothing to stir it with. Ah. My pen. And I think it slightly melted.
Speaking of fun with heat. So I learned that cardboad does not belong in the oven. The hard way. Well the other day, Melissa, Karen, and I ordered pizza. We later decided we wanted to heat it back up so I took control over the kitchen. I just took the Papa John's box and placed it in the oven at 350 degrees. Yeah, about 15 minutes later we smelled somehting burning. I thought it was perfectly fine to take the box out of the oven, wile Karen and Melissa started yelling at me. It makes sense.....its like a little incubator. Who knew you couldn't place paper in almost fire. So last night I made one of those frozen pizzas that have the cardboard on the bottom. But see, its ok because I didnt realize that there was cardboard on the bottom, so I totally was not at fault. So yeah about 20 minutes into it, i smell something burning, but just ignore it. Shortly after the smoke detector goes off. What the hell. The kitchen is smoke, of course. Look in the oven, take the unburnt pizza out...then find my culprit. come on, its been a while since i have had a kitchen misadventure, it was about time for a new one.

almost an hour later....
i am listening to the new Nada Surf album now. They're playing with Sondre Lerche. Not on the albu, on tour. I want to see that show. Speaking of shows. Ah, the Saint in Asbury. What a cute little club. Small, intimate venue that is very receptive of orginal bands. Gotta love that. And the staff was so extremely nice. Saw Green to Think and Graham Colton, two amazingly wonderful bands. I have been a fan of GC for quite a while now and finally got to see a full live performance. yay. Maybe I will own my own venue. After I win the lottery. Haha, I just remembered when Miss Jen, Aurora, and Jim and I went to Ben Folds. We like to play the game "in my venue..." Of course it would be named Mirandaland ;-) Complete with a Ferris Wheel. Hahaha I just remembered.....on the way to Asbury, in the beginning on the trip on 273 I was aggravated by traffic and I casually told Aurora and Tessa that when I have my own country all major highways will be ten lanes. Aurora said that that was the first time she ever heard that phrase uttered. Again, it would be named Mirandaland ;-). I was about to compile a list of things we say that probably are never uttered, but then again, I have to stop myself because this site has become way too big and too many people are looking over my shoulder haha. I know I have lost my dignity numerous times lately, but there needs to be a gatekeeper. Two more hours and I am doing fiiiinnnnneeeee.

Ahhhh...lovely WVUD
doing an overnight here from midnight to 6am and thought I would check in. Have the coffee and donuts. God, I love this industry :-)
Maybe I will write in every hour just to keep my sanity haha. Nothing like a spontaneous drive to Asbury Park last night, only to get to bed at 6 am and wake up at noon and to broadcast till 6 am. Sleep is such a luxory these days haha. It really isn't necessary. A caffeine IV does just fine.
So I am doing the good old apartment search right now. Debating in staying in Newark and living in the apartments connected to my record store...haha yes, I could wake up ten minutes prior to starting the work day...or just heading to the Baltimore/DC area. Is it time for me to find a practical job already!?!?!
