Weekdays from 2-6pm PST I host the Afternoon Drive show on Today’s Best Music, 107.3 KOOL FM from Victoria, BC. KOOL plays the biggest songs in Top 40, like Taylor Swift, Adele and Justin Bieber (and the girls go wild!) I sing along to all of them...really poorly.
I also make lots of phone calls to Nonna, my hilarious and super wise 93-year-old Italian grandma. A KOOL listener once asked me if Nonna is real, so I called her to relay the question. Nonna was confused and said, 'Am I real? Well I smile at the bus driver and he smiles back at me, so of course I'm real!' Now you know.
If it's a local event, interesting news story or viral video, I'll have it for you...and of course you're always included in the conversation, so you should give me a call sometime (250-386-1073). I'd love to hear from you!
Rihanna just answered a fan’s question about how to get over his first love. She tweeted him back…and it’s really good advice.
She wrote, “Just believe that the heartbreak was a gift in itself. Cry if you have to, but it won’t be forever! You will find love again, and it will be even more beautiful! In the meantime enjoy all that YOU are!”
Where are you on the scale of Hugger to Jerry Seinfeld? You heard about that, right?
Jerry Seinfeld was doing an interview and Kesha randomly came up and asked for a hug. He said no. Three times.
I can appreciate that. I’m not a big hugger myself. I am with people I know and really connect with, but with strangers? A high-five would do it. I feel like by nature, hugs should be a full-on, comforting experience. If they’re not…if they’re just a light pat on the back as your bodies have awkward space between them…I get uncomfortable.
Unless you can do it right, don’t do it. Which is definitely not to say I want to bear hug everyone. Cause I don’t. But if we’re not bear hug close, a fist bump can be just as effective.
I guess I’m more on the Seinfeld scale of hugging.
Not that a reason is ever needed to eat ̶n̶i̶n̶e̶ ̶d̶o̶n̶u̶t̶s̶…a donut…but today is National Donut Day. You know what to do.
What’s your favorite? I like jelly-filled. And Canadian Maple. Also apple fritters, sour cream glazed, old fashioned, Boston cream, long johns, crullers and…I think that’s it. Just a couple. *I’m not a huge donut person.
Happy National Donut Day – may you find as much enjoyment (and much less guilt) in a good donut as this Grandma did.
*literally have donut frosting on my face as I typed that.
