Let's do lunch, Oprah

I've noticed while pregnant, I've had some wild, vibrant dreams.  They seem so realistic. 

Yesterday I dreamt that Oprah Winfrey invited me to her house for lunch.  Sure.  Why not. In my bizarre dream I'm closer to her than Gail. 

I made it all the way to her front door, when Oprah came rushing out to meet me on her porch, slamming the door behind her.  "The house is a mess," she said.  "I didn't have time to clean, so we'll have to go out." (What the hell, maids?!)

She offered to drive - which was nice - in her green Neon (what?! No Rolls?! Was I not good enough?)

So here I am, rollin with Oprah in a NEON ... to eat lunch from Panda Express on a mall bench.  That was her choice, not mine.

I woke up kinda pissed at Oprah for being a lousy host ... plus I was hungry.  That Chinese food didn't stick with me at all...

What's the most damage you've ever done at work?



I was just reading a story out of England, where a airport baggage handler accidentally caused $6 million worth of damage to a jet.

How, you ask... Having just finished loading the plane with luggage, the baggage handler accidentally left his electronic scanning gun on the aircraft's engine cover.

When the plane reved the engines and started moving, the scanning gun was sucked into the engine, causing the damage and causing the pilot to abort the takeoff.

While costing the airline $6 million dollars is bad enough, it could have been worse if it had happened after takeoff.

It got me thinking about all the damage I've seen (and sometimes done) at work.

So here's the question: What's the most damage you've done at work?

... think about it and join me at 6:15 for the Wake Up Call Monday morning!!! Talk to ya then!!!

My recent ebay score.

Some of you may not know, but I collect wrestling figures.  Surprised?  You shouldn't be.  Anyways, I currently am collecting bootleg wrestling figures from the 80's (usually sold from dollar stores).  They aren't worth much money, because they are just generic knockoff's from giant factories in Japan.  But because they were massed produced, and were not "official" figures, finding them on ebay is never an easy task!  

I was lucky enough to recently pick up a nice collection of figures this past week.  Even better, a ring was included!  Finding rings from these bootleg serious are really hard to find, mostly because they were very basic and junk, compared to the WWF, WCW, and AWA toy rings.   Again, the value of these are probably only $1-$5, but I remember staring at these figures when I was a kid, begging my mom to buy them for me.  So to capture some of that childhood memory is clutch!  

Here are pictures of my recent purchase!

So go check your basements or attics and see if you can find any of those old wrestling figures, because I may buy a few off of ya!

What do you call your boyfriend when you're over the age of 40?




Now that we are engaged I have very little introducing my fiancée to anyone who we may run into… but, back when I was getting ready to introduce (my then girlfriend) Erika to “the entire world of Eric” two summers ago, I really didn't know what to say when making all the introductions.


I truly thought "I’d like you to meet my girlfriend" sounded too much like being back in high school…  but what wording do you use when talking about your significant other without using that label?



 Do you go with something like 'sweetheart', 'lady friend', or 'other half'? Do you agree that it seems awkward for me to be calling her my "girlfriend"?

Why kids don't belong in an office...

Why we don't take our kids to work, Reason # 20:



Cole found candles in my drawer that I didn't even know I had.  He took a bite out of the strawberry candle.  Then the "Sex on the Beach" scented one.  Hmm.  Wonder what that tasted like...

The Worst Song In Recorded History Is...

During our post show wrap meeting I began to think about all the music that I thought ranked as the worst songs in recorded history. There were several, but as always there can be only one "worst ever"!

Songs you simply cannot understand why they got produced, then released, and then somehow people inexplicably liked them when they heard them! WHY!!!

My (edited for size issues) list includes:
#3) Ya Mo Be There- James Ingram
#2) MacArthur Park- Donna Summer

 
But the #1 worst song in recorded history is one you probably have heard but… but I did.
In fact it was a hit in NYC many years ago when I was working there in the 90’s and is gut wrenching!

I will introduce you to this epic musical disaster Monday morning at 7:15am!
(Plus: think about what you consider the worst song in recorded history and tell us!)
 
Have a great weekend and Happy Father’s Day!!!

Are you a kid of the 80's?



If you instantly knew this was a still from the Saturday cartoon hit "Muppet Babies", then you very likely are a child of the 80's (or a mom of a 30-something year old!)  I can't believe how many people fell in love with this show.  It always creeped me out!!  You never saw the nanny's face, only her retched striped socks that she NEVER changed.  And those poor lil muppets never went outside -- except for one episode (probably b/c viewing mom's complained!).  No wonder they were forced to use their imagination!!

Click on the pic above to enter the world of the 80's as you remembered it -- what's your favorite?  Mine were the Scratch n Sniff Stickers - I think I had them all in my cherished sticker book, except the Plumb one!

You aint from around here, are ya?!





Everyone in this country can get behind a good "U-S-A!  U-S-A!" chant.  For everything else, we've got our own regional dialects.

As a linguistic person myself I find this both infuriating and very intriguing!

 

A statistician at North Carolina State University analyzed survey data on the different words and pronunciations different parts of this country use to describe the same exact thing.  Here are the three biggest ones that we Americans disagree on . . .

 

 

Caramel.  The East and the South usually go with "car-a-mel" . . . the Midwest and West go with "car-mil."

 

 

You Guys vs. Ya'll.  The South uses "ya'll" . . . except for south Florida, which goes with "you guys."  Pretty much the rest of the country goes with "you guys" . . . except central Kentucky, where the most popular version is "you all."



Pecan.  This might be the biggest divide of all.  The Northeast pronounces it "PEE-can" . . . Louisiana and its surrounding areas go with "pick-AHN" . . . northern Wisconsin and Michigan say "PEE-kahn" . . . and the rest say "pee-KAHN."


What word (or phrase) can make your skin crawl when it's said unusually?

 

BTW: Here is an interesting article on how Americans speak differently depending on where they live:
