Not A Damn Thing Going On!

I sold my very first radio spot last week. It was beyond nerve racking because it was down to the very last minute due to an error on the client's part. But all went well until Tuesday morning when I was told that due to a technical problem, the computer system bumped out one of the spots. GREAT!!!! My very first client and it gets f'd up!! At least this wasn't my fault because I did everything right. Plus the client wasn't too upset about it because we gave him a make-good.

I can't believe that Christmas is next week. For some reason I though it was 2 weeks away until Sergio told me. I don't know why I thought that. As far as plans go, I really don't have any. A friend of mine is trying to convince me to go to LA for New Years, but I don't know if I want to go. I'd rather go to Miami (CESAR TAKE NOTE!!!) because I really want to visit that city. And it doesn't even look like Christmas here at all. It's in the mid-50's outside and very sunny. But then again that's Texas weather for you. It'll probably end up snowing in February or eary March!!

I've also been on a massive CD spending spree the past month. I've spent more deniro than I have all year. I've pretty much listened to nothing but the new Kelly Clarkson CD because it is really, really, really good! There's also this regaeeton (did I spell that right??) song that I heard and I think it's called "Gasolina", but I don't know who it is by. Anyone know who it is?? I like this song alot and want to find it.

My dad calls me almost weekly and asks me the SAME thing everytime. For some reason he worries that something is going to happen and that I'm going to live on the street. I keep reassuring him that as far as $$$ goes, I'm perfectly fine. He is such a worrier!! My mom on the other hand never asks. But that's just my dad....gotta love him even with all his wackiness!

There's No Place Like Home! There's No Place Like Home!

Ok......I know that it's been a quite a while since I last posted, but things have been very busy. Tuesday Nov. 23 was my last day at the Voice and I left that evening to Roswell for Thanksgiving. I don't have internet access there so I couldn't post, check email, or anything else.

In a nutshell Thanksgiving was good. My mom had one of her famous breakdowns Thanksgiving morning because she had the turkey in the oven under 200 degrees and didn't realize it until about 11:30 that morning. It had been cooking for God knows how long at that temperature! And since we always eat around noon or 1:00 she was in a tizzy. I had to console her and tell her it was fine because everything else was done....ham and all the trimmings. Oh, and my sister Tessa brought 7 freakin' pies because she couldn't decide which kind to bring.

The weather heading out there sucked. I ended up leaving Dallas at exactly 5:00 pm on Tuesday and I didn't make it into the west end of Ft. Worth until almost 6:30. Then I had to deal with the massive rains and I didn't get into Roswell until midnight (1:00 am here). Luckily I gain an hour going there. The weather sucked there too. The wind blew the entire week and nights were insanely cold. The trip back wasn't any better. When I got up this past Monday, it was 30 degrees and there were snow flurries. The wind was still there and was at least 30 mph unti I got to Brownfield. I didn't get into Ft. Worth until 5:00 (just in time for rush hour!!) because I lost an hour coming home. In all, it was a good trip. No drama, no arguements, no nothing!!

I also started my first day at Clear Channel on Wednesday. These past 3 days, my brain has been overloaded with info. I feel like I'm cramming for a final! There is so much damn information. I know that in time I'll get it all down, but it's just so much!

AND Sergio did something that embarrassed me. Apparently last Sunday he went out to JR's and ran into a friend of his. He was introduced to this guy who said his name was Derek. During the conversation he told Sergio he was the HR Director for Clear Channel and Sergio said, " just hired my roommate!" Derek, of course, knew who he was talking about and Sergio proceeded to blurt out "Yeah...he thinks you have a realy cute butt." When Serge told me this I was mortified because I had to see Derek first thing on Wednesday. I was hoping that he wouldn't remember. Well...I didn't get to finalize paperwork until about 6:00 on Thursday because I was busy. Right in the middle of me signing, Derek mentioned that he ran into a friend of mine. I already knew, but I played like I didn't know. He couldn't remember his name and when he said that he was my roommate, I told him it was Sergio. Derek had this look on his face like he wanted to say something and I was thinking "PLEASE don't say anything!" He kept making small talk and luckily we were interrupted by an IT guy. At that point I said I was tired and was going home.

I mean, I do think he's cute (a little short....but cute) but I'm not good at facing people once they know that I think they are hot or have said something really embarrassing. And the Sales Manager for KISS is a queen and so is the Asst. Controller and one of the AE's for The Edge. So in 3 days I've been introduced to 4 guys, 2 of which are cute!!

Maybe I'll ask Derek out sometime. It wouldn't hurt to ask!
