Wanna Know More??

This will be fun, light-hearted post! I'm excited to share some more about me, so here a few fun facts about me!
I dressed as the Easter Bunny for a charity event.
Well, when I was in college, I interned at a radio station in the promotions department. I had to help coordinate events that the station did. One of those events was for a charity kick-off event for a local golf tournament. Since it was a few weeks before Easter, they wanted an Easter Bunny there to pass out eggs and hang with the kids. The station could not find anyone else to do it, so I had to. My boss told me to bring a friend or few to help me keep walk around and keep kids off of me. Well, I couldn't find any friends to help me on that day. I was like "the kids can't be that bad, I'll be fine." I was NOT! Those kids are so friggin' ruthless and rude. So many wanted to jump up and hit me in the face or kick me. Many stole the eggs out my basket, but I couldn't run after them, since my suit was heavy. The worst thing about it, the parents would encourage the kids to act that way. Thankfully, a radio station employee stepped in to get the kids off of me. After she did, I ran into the promo van and stripped off that damn costume. Now I feel what those mascots and Disney people have to deal with.
Antiques Roadshow and other PBS shows are my jam! NPR, too!
I live for an episode of Antiques Roadshow. Give me a marathon, I'm in heaven. It's very intriguing that people can bring junk or cheap crap they got from a yard sale and have it be worth a lot of money! The appraisers give great insight and can tell the history of the items. I have learned so much about history, art, and pop culture through this show. Plus watching the people's reactions to how much it is worth, is priceless. I'm surprised no one has had a heart attack, yet!
Other PBS shows I love are American Masters, NOVA, POV, and local programming. I get my news from the PBS Newshour versus other stations, too.
On NPR, I listen to 1A with Joshua Johnson every morning to keep me up to date with political and social issues. I love Fresh Air and Forum in the afternoon. I fave weekend shows are The TED Radio Hour and Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me!
I'm a self-proclaimed nerd! But, I'm still sexy, though!
Well, I've always been a nerd since I was child. I wore big glasses and had braces. Nope, I'm not going to post a picture from those days.
I rather stay inside and read than play, much to my mom's dismay. I was knowledgeable about a lot of things, especially history. History really fueled my passion for learning. Luckily, I grew up in a history rich area. Just about every major event in early US history happened in my backyard.
Today, I still love going to museums and historical places, even though I have visited them many times over. I feel like I learn something new everyday! A perfect date can be to a museum or a visit to a historical monument. Maybe I can be your local tour guide!
