the boys--2004

TRL -- How We've Loved It!

In the 'day,' we never ever missed watching TRL. Seriously. We watched it every day!

Back when Carson Daly was the host and The Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears and Nsync were on the show constantly.

Marilyn mistressmarilyn and I have always loved pop music -- but the new Millennium brought us such incredible JOY. I can't tell you what fun it was to be wrapped up in the pop world -- and constantly dashing off to Las Vegas for concerts.

After years dealing with seriously ill parents, it was like popping out of our cocoons as butterflies. And we've continued with truly joyful lives ever since. Please don't get me wrong here -- I'm not saying we were unhappy people, ever. But there's quite a difference between being happy and being joyful. And so much of it was the MUSIC! How we love it!

Marilyn and I became different people during this time. Friends and associates who didn't know us during those years, often didn't really know us anymore.

What a pleasure it is to sit here and sing along with BSB, appearing on TRL again!

And John Norris interviewing The Boys? Perfect! Carson and John were such an important part of TRL...

I know we haven't really watched the show in years. (Hell, it was never the same after Carson Daly left.) But I'm still SAD to see it come to an end.

On the other hand, I wouldn't have missed TRL for the world!!! Thanks, MTV. And many thanks, TRL!!!

Doctor Appointment

Don't forget!!!

I'm breaking down and going to the doctor. I'll have been fighting this virus (flu) three weeks on Wednesday... (sigh)

Doctor Appointment: Wednesday, November 19

With: Dr. Stevens

When: 3:20 p.m.

I'm tired of trying to avoid laryngitis and dealing with this constant coughing. Plus I'm so rundown and tired that it isn't funny...

busy caesar, busy

At the Office

Marilyn mistressmarilyn and I did sleep until past noon today, which was marvelous. (That bug has really exhausted us...)

Anyway, this afternoon we came in to the festival office, to get some work done. As it's now past 9:00 p.m., so you can see we were serious about that goal!

Not surprisingly, Marilyn is swamped. When she's out even for a day, she comes back to tons of emails and voice mails, aside from other work. Missing days last week already have her busy, so I can only imagine what it'll be like when she gets back from two weeks off!

I did quickly (and easily) add the essential 501(c)(3) nonprofit tag to our website footer, anyway. That's one task I can check off my list! (smile)

Collapse ) So that's another item I can check off my list!

Oh, and I added a 'Donation' callout box to the Home page, too -- so that's item number three I can check off...

In the To Do category, I still need to make a new Home page banner, so I'll need to give that some thought.

Naturally, the minute I get in here, I've get other tasks that keep me from any list of work I might have. But that's cool. Multi-tasking is certainly an important part of special events work.

We did treat ourselves and have Starbucks today. I added to my Starbucks card, and we both got a beverage and snack -- thankfully, as that's all we've eaten all day. We'll have some late supper when we get home, though. We've got leftover hot dogs and chili, so it's all good.
