I know for some, it has been a trying week since the holiday on Wednesday kind of threw many of us off track, but it's all cool because it is officially Friday!
Many of you guys did some fun stuff for your Fourth of July holiday, mine was rather uneventful with the exception of going out for dinner, playing a little World of Warcraft, and then spending my late evening monitoring the neighbors across the street (this is the south, remember? My neighborhood has a lot of 'down home, country folks'). They had at least 50 people in their front yard, and were setting off a high-number of fireworks in the center of the street. So every time a loud one would go off, I had to peek out the window or door and ensure that there were no flames coming from my rooftop, and that none of their pyrotechnics had shot into my carport. It made me feel kind of bad... like I was the snotty, testy neighbor... the one who always bitches when something eventful happens on the block, or the one who calls the police on people (which I did NOT, just for the record).
Because sometimes, it is me and/or members of my family who are the ones causing the stir, which feels more natural-so it just kind of made me feel like an old fart that I was concerned with this activity. The real reason I was is basically because we had to get up and go to work early the next morning--so the holiday was a bit of a damper, and we couldn't operate in true Holiday Style... I know you all understand what I'm saying.
So... Last week, after my visits with Meggy Moon's Crazy Talk, and Rockdog Unleashed blog radio shows, I began to toy with the idea of doing my very own blog radio program. Thus far, Jinks, Rockdog, ZigZagMan and Captain Corky have backed up the idea, saying they think I should do it. I'm giving it serious thought.
When I was growing up, as I have told you before, I spent a lot of time alone because I didn't have a lot of other kids being out in the country and because all my sisters were older and had left home by the time I was four years old. Therefore, you can imagine I had to find a lot of imaginative ways to keep myself occupied... this might have been the reason I was more into "Creative" endeavors such as art and music. So sometimes, I would pull out Mom's tape recorder, and sit with my tapes and radios and music, just making up stupid stuff, doing "mock" shows and goofing around... I got kind of good at it. Who knows, maybe I could bring it.
What do you think, my trusty blog friends? If I (Aunt Jackie) do my very own show on Blog Talk Radio, what would a good premise be? What type of material would you like to hear on the show, guests, music, etc...? Keep in mind, I am a southern girl, so southern humor is always good subject matter, I love comedy so I would probably like it to be funny... Give me your input... maybe you could spark some good ideas and help convince me to do it, and also possibly shape what might become "Weekend Wood" with Aunt Jackie (or something like that. Feel free to suggest cool titles too).
