…How do I stop myself from being just a number?… August 3, 2011

Bloggity, blog, blog, BLOG!

So after three weeks of research I finished my cost of DWi story.
It’s the centerpiece in this weeks issue.
I think it turned out really great.

This week I’m working on a story for EDU localizing the Republic book ban.
I’m decently excited about this.
I think the story will be good.
I think the opinion column I write about it will be even better.
It’s a slippery slope.

It’s still hot.
Just FYI in case you didn’t know.
In case all the inane chit chat you have with every checker and coworker and guy next to you in line isn’t about the heat.
Just in case you didn’t see it on the front page of every newspaper.
And the start of every news cast.
In case you missed all that—its hot.

Again I ask, when did two week vacations become OK?

You are a media contact.
I am media.
It would benefit you more to talk to me that it will me to talk to you.
Get that idea in your head now.

Got a free weather radio at an expo I covered today.
(not to mention the Crusin’ USA custard I know @AdamLetterman is super jealous of.)

Water is good today.

Had a doughnut at the staff meeting this morning.
Maybe the best cake doughnut I have ever had.
(and yes it is doughnut. If you spell it donut you are wrong.)

Went to a new Chinese place for dinner last night.
Bao Bao in Chesterfield Village.
SUPER good.
And tons of food for cheap.
Adam and I each got an entree, soup, rice and two crab rangoon for $15.
PLUS I had tons of leftovers for lunch today.

AE is coming back next week.
Good and bad.
I was just starting to hit my groove.
Two weeks in, the third would have been a breeze.
I would rock an AE postion.

School is getting ready to start.
Visited OHS for the first time today.
Back in the saddle again……

Went shopping in my closet today.
Found a shirt I haven’t worn in years.
Still fits and I think its in style again.
Double win.

In case you missed it, its still hot out.

Drove to Bolivar for a photography class last Friday.
I learned I am already a good photographer.
It’s takes more than shutter speed and F-stop to make a good picture—it takes an eye.

Why would you start a specialized work Twitter account and not tell me?
I run the CCH twitter.

Adam has a special people meeting tonight.
I’m not cool enough to go.
He won’t be home until about 7:30 p.m.
The options of what to do are endless.
I should run.
I’ll most likely watch Bones.

Speak of Bones.
I have seen every eposide past No. 25.
I finally got the first season and started No. 1.
It was weird.
Bones was sassy and Zac was talking about ass tapping.
It spawned the hastag #notmyBones

Which BTW, if you don’t follow me on Twitter you are a fool.
I am high-larry-us.
That is assuming you care what I’m talking about.
If not, you would probably just think I’m rude.
And tweet too much.
Which I do.
6,000+ and counting.
(I think it’s just the right amount.)

Someday soon, my break will come.

I don’t know if I want to cook dinner tonight.
It heats up the house so bad,
In case you missed it, its hot outside.

Another coworker got engaged.

Poor Adams is about to kill himself at work.
Filling in for a coworker for over a month now, with no sign of her return.
He needs hugs.

I may be getting tired of Words with Friends.
I had too many games going at once.
I can only think of so many words.

The eyes have it.

    Baby, it’s ok to be a number, because in my book, you’re number 1.
