You know that Noon thing I talked about before?

It ended up being 500pm.

The flight out of Chicago to New Orleans was delayed because the engine stalled at the gate. And the next two airplanes that were going to take us here to NO were delayed or redirected to another airport because of snow.

All in all I spent around 12 hours in airports or on airplanes.

But United did give me a $150.00 travel certificate for my trouble, since the whole damn delay started with a mechanical failure.

Hellooooo Vegas in February getting $150.00 easier to do :)

Is it noon yet?

'Cause thats when I get off the plane in New Orleans and start my Christmas.

...and the bells were ringing out for Christmas Day...

it's not a happy holiday song...but it's one of my favorites, and I love me some Irish Punk/Drunk rock


Merry Christmas from the Grinch Girl.

It was Christmas Eve babe
In the drunk tank
An old man said to me, won't see another one
And then he sang a song
The Rare Old Mountain Dew
I turned my face away
And dreamed about you

Got on a lucky one
Came in at ten to one
I've got a feeling
This year's for me and you
So Happy Christmas
I love you baby
I can see a better time
When all our dreams come true

They've got cars big as bars
They've got rivers of gold
But the wind goes right through you
It's no place for the old
When you first took my hand
On a cold Christmas Eve
You promised me
Broadway was waiting for me

You were handsome
You were pretty
Queen of New York City
When the band finished playing
They howled out for more
Sinatra was swinging,
All the drunks they were singing
We kissed on a corner
Then danced through the night

The boys of the NYPD choir
Were singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day

You're a bum
You're a punk
You're an old slut on junk
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
You scumbag, you maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy Christmas your arse
I pray God it's our last

The boys of the NYPD choir
Still singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day

I could have been someone
Well so could anyone
You took my dreams from me
When I first found you
I kept them with me babe
I put them with my own
Can't make it all alone
I've built my dreams around you

The boys of the NYPD choir
Still singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells are ringing out
For Christmas Day

The 2009 Death World Tour Continues...

Mere days after Local Radio lost an Icon in the death of Fred Honsburger, and the day after Brittany Murphy was found dead in her home, I log onto Yahoo to find out that Alaina Reed Hall passed away.

Name not ringing any bells?

Hall played Olivia, Gordon's sister, on Sesame street from 1976-1988.
I was born in 1978.
You can do the math there.

2009 was the year of death. I'm glad it's coming to an end.

Stuff A Bus 2009

My nieces had a blast at Big Lots picking out toys for other kids who "didnt have any Christmas"
We dropped an amount of money tonight that's gonna make me cringe in the morning, but it's all for a wonderful cause.

Mikey and Big Bob from the KISS Morning Freak Show will be out in the Miracle Mile parking lot for a few more days still,if you want to stop by ANY TIME DAY OR NIGHT to donate something.

Walmart and Target and Big Lots and Marshalls and TJ Maxx and Walgreens and Rite Aid have toys under $20.00.

Walmart is open 24 hrs.

Do you see where I'm going with this?
