Early Morning Radio

I generally don’t listen to FM radio but since I still *looks angrily at the male half* don’t have XM in my car, I make due with what I have.  Generally, I just listen to my CD’s but every now and then, I’ll flip on the radio.  That’s what I did this morning.

The first thing I came across was two of our rock jocks discussing a man being caught with a prostitute… IN THE BACK OF HIS GARBAGE TRUCK!  My gods, how gross is that?  I came in sometime in the middle of the conversation, so I’m not sure if it was here or not, but it sure wouldn’t surprise me if it was. 

Afraid of what might be coming next, I switched stations.  Two more jocks, this time on a mix-type station, were discussing thing that would happen ‘only in Las Vegas’.  There were a few silly things said, but the one that made me laugh was this: a lady called in and said that every day she drives past this senior living center and it has a bright, neon sign saying ‘SENIOR LIVING CENTER’ on it.  Yeah, only in Las Vegas.  Although, the comment about the bride, in full gown, sitting at the slot machines made me laugh too, but mainly because you see that SO often.  Sad, but true.

So, while laughing over that, I changed stations again during the commercial.  Another set of DJ’s were talking about rudeness and whether it’s becoming a problem.  There was a survey that found 4 out of 5 people thought rudeness was indeed becoming a problem however, 99% of the people surveyed said that they do not believe they are rude.  Um, there’s something wrong there. LOL  Generally, I am NOT rude, but I know that I CAN be…  But yeah, I know, it’s never YOU is it?  It’s always the OTHER guy…

And lastly, Shana… I heard yours and Allyson’s theme song on the radio this morning.  Or, rather, one of them.  And I laughed until I cried.  See, my BFF has been through all of Ali’s changes in personality and temperament over the years and every now and then, a certain song from my past will come on the radio and I’ll just start to laugh.  And only she knows why.  Is it crazy that a song will take me back to something that never actually happened?

Oh, and the song was Secret Lovers by Atlantic Starr.  Others that do this to me are If She Would Have Been Faithful by Chicago, Gonna Buy Me a Dog by the Monkees and *coughs* nearly anything by Nelson.  Just thinking about Matthew and Gunnar makes me blush and laugh.  Damn, Ali!  I miss those days…

When I started planning my wedding I quickly decided it would not take place anywhere NEAR a casino for two reasons:
1. I didn't want the slot machine sound effects interupting my vows.
2. I was determined not to be one of those brides parading through the casino in full costume followed by the bridal posse!

LOL @ Lilly... yeah... Luckily, most of the chapels are closed off from the casinos but I hear ya.

Qwill: I wouldn't if I were you. It's almost never as entertaining as it was this morning! LOL
