cuff me

Tonight one of the greatest pranks was pulled off. I am not going to write on whose brainchild it was, nor the strategy, but will tell you what happened....

So we're all at the White House talking and hanging out and not doing anything productive. Karen and I go to Wawa while Epler goes to the studio. Oh wait, no we don't. We go to the parking lot instead and wait for Jay to get arrested for trespassing at the White House...

Dave, who Ed is good friends with and who I went to high school with was a Dewey cop as well as a UD Public Safety officer. So he barges in the White House and asks Jay for ID since there have been a lot of break-ins in the area. Dave proceeds to scour over the room with his flashlight and stops on the Captain who was chilling on the desk, minding its own business. FRISK AND FIELD TEST TIME!!! Against the wall and spread them!!! While Dave was in the other room calling in Jay's info to the police, Jay text messages me telling me what was going on, as if we weren't outside the window trying to hear the hoopla. Well, then Dave tells Jay that it is policy to cuff the suspect and bring them to the office...

Jays look when he came out of the WH in cuffs was priceless. It was seriously like a ten minute ordeal in there. SO we all laugh and good times were had. I think Jay is still mad at us.

Come on, all is fair in love and war. :-D The TV station is built on laughter and poking fun. It's like initiatiobn...like veryone has to drive with me at least once to be considered a crew member ;-) haha JK.

another reason why i don't like people

Ok, so I DJed a folk show this morning. The regular DJ is on vacation so I have been subbing the show in which I have received nothing but priase for my fine slection and knowledge of folk rock. Little do the listeners know that my knowledge is very broad haha. SO I found a cool folk cd form the Philadelphia FOlk Festival as well as a bunch of new folk cds that came in. I make the listeners aware countless times that the regular DJ was out, and I am in, and what we were going to listen to. Personnally I think that listening to the Philly live performances was way cool as well as hearing what just came out.
I had countless callers call me up and tell me how awful I was. WHO DOES THAT!???!?! Ok, number one, the listeners of this show are mostly older, definitely not young punks who I would expect this from. And number two, who proactively goes out of their way to tell someone how much they don't like them. And three, I even said I wasn't the regular DJ so they should expect something other than the ordinary. Asses. Granted, I did not enjoy some of the music I played, but hell, it fit the genre and I was just doing what I was told. I was told by the regular DJ to pick new things from the shelves and play them. ARGH!!! I did receive more compliments then complaints, but still, you remember the criticism. Every caller who was negative towards me I asked if they had a request. All declined. Hey, I offered the invite to them to pick what I would play and they refused. Fuck them.

this is me be no one else

Happy Hour makes me happy.
So Charise and I had a shitty day at work and we must then proceed to drown our sorrows at the East End. I think I spend more time there than not. But yay for dollar off drinks now before 9. So after work, we speed over the the double E and down a few drinks before the right angle hits the clock.

Tuesday is also Karaoke night at the East End. Rick and Melissa were also at the EE and we had a grand old time watching the people who crossed the state border (DE/MD) to partake in this glorious event. I give those people credit, karaoke is something you can only do while not in a familiar town.

It was also a night to catch up. On phone calls and in person. Funny how fast the days seem to pass by....

Ahh...the Lloyd Dobler Effect boys... where to begin, oh where to begin.
I admit that most of the events that occured will be omitted to protect the not so innocent. So unless you were there...tough.

So Aurora, Tessa, and I hop in the car and drive to Kahunaville to catch the LDE show in our very own state. Phil and I ply phone tag for 20 minutes as we try to find him so we can do the backdoor thing. Unfortunately the back door was barricaded by a fence. Over we go! The jump was interesting and luckily no one got impaled.

So we see our favorite boys in the green room and crack open the beers. Yay for 90 beers for 8 of us. So we catch up and Aurora and I play pool against Donnie and Javi and loose horribly. Ok, I lose horribly. We decide that shotgunning a beer seems like a good idea. Silly Phil and I get it all over ourselves because we forgot to drink out of the hole. Oh geez.

So we all hang out on the couch of love then escort the guys to the stage. There were people in mulltes dancing. And of course, Aurora and I together is a garaunteed good time, so we then decide to make fun of the dancers and we start shaking our groove thangs.

The crowd is dead and we hate them. Yeah and I also am not fond of a certain bald headed guy who found it necessary to talk shit about me every chance he got. Dude, you don't even know me. As if he reads this, but still. Grow the fuck up and enjoy yourself.

The band gave Aurora and I shit for not travelling to see them as we do for other artists. We never really thought of it, but we don't. And we should because we have the most fun with them and they treat us the best. So I promise, we will make it to a faraway state for you. Yes Phil, we'd go to Alaska. So we have these inside jokes with the band and everytime we see them, they must hint at our jokes with them on stage, and of course only two people laugh, Aurora and I, but it rocks. Again, I have to censor myself here because I am not sure who reads this and who may get offended, but yeah...good times.

So yeah, other things happen. I was just having fun, I swear...you all know I really am not like that....hey, all in good clean fun ;-) Hey you know, we all try to have a good time..... it even made the band's road journal...yeah....
"August 8th, 2003: Kahunaville, Wilmington, DE.

Hmmmmmm...If your name starts with an "M" (you know who you are) and you are reading this (you KNOW who you are), you have to know that I am seriously considering writing about how you were the REAL star of the show at Kahunaville tonight...BUT I don't know...you are such a wonderful person so maybe I'll just let things slide on this one (heh heh)."

Then Rusty locks his keys in the car. What's with rockstars locking their keys in the car. So Aurora and I have to share the story how Mark locked our keys in the car at 2 am in Maine. Ok, it wasn't totally Mark's fault, we're all to blame. It made for an interesting hour in the convenience store where we were gonna have sex in the bathroom.

So we leave after shairng stories in the parking lot with the guys and head to Dunkin Donuts. Not sure how we really made it home, we flew, and Aurora and I have that to a science. So into DD where we realize we are going to hell because we made fun of a lot of diseases tonight. So we assumed that hell would be fun because we'd be together. no, we'll probably be seperated to opposite ends of hell, and then it really would be awful.

oh and we saw a swift truck. SWIIIIIFTTTT HOLLLYYYYYY!!!!!!
