Recent Events and Happenings

August 30, 2006

I’m feeling much better, not that anyone was really that worried. Anyone who knows me, knows that I can’t be depressed for too long. Life goes on and there’s too much stuff to be done!

Speaking of, we’re totally and completely done with installing the wood in our hallway (and accompanying foyer!). Sure, I know.. just a hallway, right? Pfft. We don’t live in box and, of course, the hallway is slightly angled, so, in turn the wood needs to be cut at a slight angle so it looks straight when done. Let me just say that I hope to never have to do this shit again, because as much as I love giving our carpet the boot (and in turn, 90% of my allergies), angles are a pain in the tuchus!

In other news.. and this I’m super excited about. I’ll be hosting my own radio show called “Digital Tapas” on Mojo Radio Live! You might have noticed the nifty graphic I whipped up over there on the sidebar to promote it and wondered why I hadn’t mentioned it. Well, wonder no more. :-D

How’d I get this gig, you ask? Well, when the lovely WebKittyn started the internet radio station, she asked if anyone would want to host their own show. I jumped on the opportunity so I could bring my love of eclectic, dance and trance music to the masses (or at least the 20 or so listeners we have right now :laugh:). I’ll be hosting a full hour show on Sunday nights, starting at 8pm PST (11pm EST). It’ll be live.. nothing pre-recorded for this gal. The premiere of “Digital Tapas” will be sometime in September, so stay tuned!

Completely off-subject, Kev and I are heading to his hometown during the long weekend for his 10-Year High School Reunion. I’m sure it’ll be fun, or at least won’t totally suck. Hey, at the very least we’re guaranteed a good story or two. Plus, there’s going to be booze and that makes just about anything bearable. ;-) If anything seriously funny happens, do expect for me to blog it. I’m hoping I’ll get some good/embarrassing/funny photos as a bonus.

Oh.. and I found out yesterday, at the first class meeting for Anatomy of Domestic Animals, that there will be a total of FOUR dissects (3 cats and 1 rat). Super-fuckin’-great, huh? :mad: I gotta do them, though, or I don’t pass and then I won’t be able to pass the California State Board test and then I won’t be an officially registered vet tech, and that’s why I went back to school at the age of almost-27 in the first place. So.. yeah.. I gotta do them.

Be Sociable, Share!

WOOHOO on getting the hallway floors done :)

I’m sooo lookin’ foward to this Sunday so I can be dancin’ to your new sweetass show *grins*

Highschool reunion time eh? Good luck with that…I’m considering becoming a porn star just so when I do have a reunion to go to I can show up and be all famous and shit *chuckle* j/k

Sucks that you’ll have to do those dissections :( Just remember, it’s all just temporary and next thing you know you’ll be done with them and be all offical and whatnot.

Have a great weekend! :)

Hey Chandra,
I know this super sucks for you but you can do it! I said this before but I really want to say it again…you are an awesome tech already in my eyes. You did excellent work down in New Orleans and I know that you will continue to do so when you finish your schooling. Personally I think you should be a Vet..? :>)
As a trekkie remember what Spock said, I can’t remember the episode or the quote exactly in my old age but basically the premise was this:
The needs of the many far outweigh the needs of the one. I hate the whole dissection thing myself but if you must do this then you must. In the long run you will be doing what you do best at the same time helping many in the future.
Sorry for the sappiness of this but I just got off a night shift and as usual I pour myself a glass of wine and read your blog before I go to bed.
Have fun at the school reunion…sheesh you reminded me of how frickin’ old I am…my 20 year reunion was 2 years ago…GAAAAAKKKK!
Take care honey….
