You’ve been stuck with me for a long time, so you may as well know a bit about me. I’ve actually been around here since January of 1999. My husband, E.J., used to work here as well. He helped start the station in 1992. My favorite bands…well, Dave Grohl can really do no wrong so the Foo Fighters are most definitely on the list. Alice In Chains, Sevendust, Blue October, Avenged Sevenfold, Radiohead (only up to OK Computer. Everything after that album is weird), Red Hot Chili Peppers, Garbage, Halestorm…I have a lot of favorites! I love musicals and some soundtracks too…like the Empire Records soundtrack, and I love RENT and Les Miserables! I love classical as well. Beethoven, Bach, Mozart! Must have something to do with all those years of piano lessons as a kid. I’ve been very lucky to see a lot of my favorite bands in concert. My first concert was actually New Kids On The Block (I was 9. They came to the Nebraska State Fair and my Mom took me for my birthday. I loved Joey). The band I’ve seen the most: Blue October! I’ve seen them 10 times. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen Sevendust at least 8 times.
What else? I am a super proud Aunt of 3 nieces and 6 nephews! I will talk your ear off about them if you let me. I am a self-professed nerd. I love planners, calendars, and have recently discovered the world of bullet journals. I can’t make my bullet journals near as pretty as the things I’ve seen online, but I’m trying. I have what I like to call the “Thumb of Death.” You know how some people have a green thumb with plants? Yeah, I kill them. All of them. When my grandmother passed away a few years ago someone sent a plant that I thought was a fake plant, and I couldn’t figure out for 3 whole months why there were dead leaves on the floor. 3 MONTHS!! Yeah…not fake. I started to take care of it. Dead. Let’s see…I’m also a big ol’ movie nerd. Many, many things I say are quotes from movies I love. If you really want a list just ask, but you might be stuck with me for a while. Also, I’m the queen of “that’s what she said…”
