Friday Thoughts


I have to find balance.

It's such a struggle, but I find myself not doing one thing creatively that I want to do....how frustrating!

Hope you find what you want, all you want, with all your heart this weekend!

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Celebrates Super Hero Day with Free Doughnuts on April 28



My friends and I had the great opportunity to tour the Krispy Kreme facility in Daytona and preview all the amazing new seasonal doughnuts. It was so cool! I got to see how these delicious doughnuts were made! (PS I the am incredibly pale one and thought everyone grabbed their sunglasses, what a dork.)

My friend Emily was sweet enough to cover this sweet event (see what I did there) way better than I could ever in her article in the Ormond Beach Observer here.

RIP Prince


It is getting to the point that on a pretty regular basis people we have admired in film, in our ears, and on our screens will pass. There seems to be a big wash of them lately...but we are losing a lot of greats.  It was sad when Haggard, Bowie etc. died earlier this year, but I can't say I was that affected. A loss to the industry of music for sure, but I can't say I listened on a regular basis. I saved that for the great ones, my go-tos, and one of them was Prince. 

This was a 30+ year relationship that Prince and I had. It is one of my great childhood memories, watching Purple Rain with my best friend, and calling her mother in at the dirty part so she could make sure we were covering our eyes. We celebrated Prince and he celebrated us, the album 1999 was the only thing that would wake me up on long road trips in my 20's. There was something about hearing the opening chords of Delirious that a 5 Hour Energy will never touch. 

I was a crazyfan of the movie and soundtrack Under the Cherry Moon. Do U Lie? Christopher Tracy's Parade and Sometimes it Snows in April are anthems for me. In fact, I must have played Sometimes it Snows ten times earlier this month as I visited NYC in snowy weather, giggling at the irony. 

In 2007, my husband and I joined two friends as we drove down to West Palm to see Prince in an intimate setting before the Super Bowl. I think the tickets were as much as our mortgage but to see him live, to have that memory-is something I will never forget.

Prince has been a part of my own culture for so long, but it is a life lesson with a point of contention-we are now in a totally new generation. I am okay with that but it really makes me sad. 

I am sure many Baby Boomers feel the same way the Day the Music Died, but its still a hard pill to swallow.  

Even though, fairly they weren't even alive during this time, its hard for me to understand that there is a world out there that doesn't understand instantly what "Go purify yourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka" means, may think "When Prince was on Apollonia" is just some drivel from a Kayne song, and don't know that Purple Rain was not only a song but a movie (although that was one of the best conversations I have ever had). Shouldn't they teach these things in school?

In all seriousness, this was all literally a generation ago and that is what the journey of life is all about. And now this portion of the journey has ended.

I was driving yesterday and received a text message. At the risk of being dramatic, I was drinking my drink and started choking when I was read my friend's message. She was joking that I had to beat my husband to the punch with this news (we race to tell the other on notable deaths) but this was no fucking joke.,...I pulled over and started looking, certain this was a hoax. I then got sickly nostalgic for my days in radio for the times where, for once, there was an opportunity to do what radio was made for, to be the force to break this kind of news first. 

Prince was such a part of what made my life cultured and I will miss that.

'thank you for the funky time'.

Oh, Hello Mid April

I even have on my Remember the Milk daily to Blog...every day. It's been a while.
What's  new... How is the world treating you?

As for Me:

-I do not have to travel till next month, I'm such a tired loser that I went to bed every night in NYC by 9p. Whoo party!

-My year as Madam President is coming to a close...bittersweet, will miss the uber involvement but it's time to let the other ladies kick some bootie.

- Next project is my high school reunion, I should say our high school reunion! What a relief and joy to not drag my husband around and say, honey this is so and so. I will say and that I just thought of this, hope everyone keeps their childless inquisition to a bare minimum....that is gonna stink.

- We started on the AdvoCare cleanse together this week. I actually started a week early then fell off a tad (hello, NY bagels and spaghetti and red wine) so I decided to start over and be diligent. Until I won't be. I just have to keep thinking about good eating and how I want to be confident at the reunion.

-Getting very weary of the preconceived notions of what my industry is. It's getting to the point that everyone is an expert. It's very frustrating. The only thing I can compare is that when my car is broken I don't come to their shop with my own wrench, right? It's the same thing. Anyway...

- Spending a lot of time working on stuff and figuring it all out. I am getting close to the solution, then I'll let you know. I realize I sound dumb and elusive and should write hmmmmmm and shit like people do when they are seeking attention. It's not that, I just haven't put all my thoughts to paper on what I'm cooking up. Sadly, because I try to write everything down-when I do you will be the first to know.

-Please go read Swans of Fifth Avenue. Melanie Benjamin is a genius and these socialites in the 50's clamoring for Truman Capote's attention is brilliant and dazzling and everything you could ever want in fashionable late 1950's Manhattan.

That's all for now!

On the south side of the Granada bridge festival goers will find 3 stages of continuous music, a jam tent, Celtic food, crafts and jewelry and, of course, plenty of Guinness!!! More than 20 bands as well two Celtic dance troupes from the United States, Canada and the British Isles will appear throughout the weekend. Admission is $5 each day for adults.
