BYOC Friday

1. Let’s brag a little….what’s the best perk you’ve ever had in your job (current or past)?

When I was in high school, I worked as a radio DJ at our school's station. I had a Grateful Dead/classic rock show called From the Vault. I would play rare concert footage and stuff like that. This lady, Jamie, called me and said she was looking for someone to work for her company part-time making jewelry and selling Grateful Dead merchandise to wholesalers (mostly head shops) out of her home and she heard me on the air and was wondering if I'd be interested. She knew that since I worked at the radio station I was a student and figured I wasn't some nut job. HECK YES I was interested! So, I worked for her for most of my senior year and the best perk ever? Paid time off when the Dead passed through town, concert tickets AND backstage passes! Jamie was sad to lose me when I went off to college, but she hooked me up with a friend of hers in the town where I went to school and got me a job in her head shop. I still keep in touch with both of those ladies.

2. Do you ever lie in your blog?

I never lie but I sometimes omit. I'll tell you anything you want to know about me, but my husband is a very private person and there are certain things he would rather I didn't share in a public place.

3. What do you wear to bed?

I wear t-shirt and undies. But don't worry, Sarah, I promise to wear a nightgown when we share a room in Chicago.

4. Where do you go for advice?

It depends what it is about. I have friends and family who are good at different things.

5. Repeat question. Make someone a superstar without using a blog award. What comment or blog stuck with you the most this week and why?

Liz - Lizzle - Libby Lou has been inspiring the heck out of me with her workouts lately!
