Congrats to my friends Aaron and Kim on their newborn son, Landon! Of course, as you may remember, we had a name the baby contest here on angiemoriconi.com. The winning entry was "Seven", from bluedogphotog. I am unsure how this discrepancy in the name came about, but I assure the winner he may keep his prize of Hartman's left over Burker King french fries. Congrats Aa and K!
Check out my new wheels! Old Bessy (my old news car) has been retired! In her place is a brand new, dark blue, 2006 Nissan Exterra!As you can see it's parked in the 'media parking' on South Beach (aka: the sidewalk). ;)
Speaking of South Beach... There's no shortage of entertainment when covering stories there! This guy was totally nuts, dancing around my camera, begging to get on the news, talking about how "sexy" he is. As appropriate as it would have been to show him dancing around during a story about a man who killed his little kids by throwing them off the 15th story balcony and then jumping himself... the blog will have to do!
Life at work can be so predictable sometimes. There's always a nut wanting to get on tv, there's always a comment about how the gear is bigger than I am and when you walk to the back of the live truck there's always some random dude with a gigantic snake hanging around there. I mean, why wouldn't there be a guy with a big snake behind the truck? Quite frankly, I'd be more surprised if there wasn't a guy with a snake back there.
Earlier in the week Dave and I went to Pensacola to shoot a few stories. We were there for a couple of days. They are still recovering from hurricane Ivan in 2004! This road is still closed. That's not the reason we were there though. I'll blog about that after the story airs!
My sister-in-law, Amy, said my shirt looks like Piglet's shirt from Winnie the Pooh. haha
Oh yes, and there was crab! They were showing the American Idol finale at this restaurant. When Taylor Hicks won, a poor little 5 year old girl sitting behind us started crying. She wanted Katherine to win. She balled and balled... And balled... And balled... 20 minutes later: "Waaaaaaah! Ka-Ka-Kather--Waaaaaaaaaah!". I think she was still crying when we left.
Dave and I are heading to Vegas and LA tomorrow! Wooo! Soul Patrol!
