All that glitters, all that remains

I've waited forever to write this, so I will make it more of a "catch you up" post.

Saw Glitter Tuesday night. It was bad. It was so bad, I've become a bit of a conspiracy theorist about it, thinking it was a set up by her record company to make it easier to sever her contract. Soundtrack wasn't bad, though. What happened to the Mariah Carey of our youth, the fun, non-hoochy thing? She's probably hanging out with the Whitney Houston of our youth; we haven't seen her in years, either.

My last camp as RHD finished up Wednesday. I still work desk for a few more weeks, but, for all practical purposes, my conference season is over. It feels weird, I've never been this worn out by conferences. Maybe it is time to call it quits. I have between now and February to think about it, so there is no need to be hasty.

Tornado Warning last night, so I was almost late for work. Get to work finally to find out . . .
we had no power!!! I think I handled it well, though. I dug the little radio out of the emergency bag, used the big old battery lantern and settled in for a long night, since there is no way to turn off the emergency lighting. Battery backup on the phones didn't fail, so I don't have to worry about any recipient rights issues (wipes forehead and says "whew"). Power came back at 1234a, so I was without power for less than an hour. Beth said it had been off for about forty-five minutes when I got here, so I now know that the phone battery lasts about two hours, at least.

I think I'm going back to bed for a few hours when I get out of here. I need the sleep more than I need to move my stuff to the apartment.

Must have been something on that side of town . . . the paper lost power as well, and the last I heard (about midnight when a coworker called me for my phone code, since mine was one of 2 in the newsroom that worked), the paper was going to be taken to Gaylord for printing.

And some huge mill in Weidman was burning down -- totally unrelated to the storm.

What a night.

I worried about y'all up there. The radio warned us that it was headed our way so I hopped my ass into a bubble bath on the top floor. :-) Glad to hear you're alright.

I love Mariah, but her image sucks.


I seen last nite at Blockbuster Mariah Carey "Glitter" was on DVD for $4.99.
What a deal or what a bomb? I kinda feel bad for her, but i think its her own
damn fault.. I mean shit, back in the old days she was sweet, beautiful and her
own person. Now she washes Puff Daddys car with little cloths on, or she is seen
in the Bronx with some thugs, and one of them is busted for Cocaine. I mean
she has really let her image go down hill. I don' know if she is doing it cause
she is really like this, or if its her record executives.. But she is very
talanted, but in my mind now living up to her capacity.

Stewart lets write her a little of support and hope, telling her we have "vision of love"
believe in her, and "someday" things will be better.

My Tuesday Schedule:
Mid-10a Thorpe Desk
11a-4p Meeting with Mahrah

I can probably push Mahrah back an hour or so. Do you want to go to lunch?

We all need to go out together. :-)

I work 7 - 10 in Robinson, and 4 - 6 in Thorpe, but other than that my day is completely free. I can do lunch or dinner, provided Kate is still here at 6 for dinner.
