Thanksgiving comes early

I have to be out of my apartment on November 30th.  That really puts a damper on spending Thanksgiving out of town.  This being said, I am celebrating today…the sunday before.

Turkey…check

Stuffing…check

Potatoes…check

Girl Scout cookies….check…Wait, who eats Girl Scout cookies for Thanksgiving? 

Me. 

Some of you may be aware of my love of these treats and how I think that the law of supply and demand keeps their popularity in serious check.  The fact is, these are only a part of this year’s holiday because I bought them from a friend with a child in Rochester.  Thus, my delivery time is slightly delayed. 

I must come clean, though.  I cheated on Emily.  I didn’t mean to.  But the girls at the grocery store were selling them and my cookies were 330 miles away.  It was only one box.  And it was delicious. 

There I said it.  I love you, Emily.  Even if sometimes you are the devil, as most children are.

Today I give thanks for the amazing people in my life, and for being able to reconnect with family whom I love dearly but only see once every few years.  For my family, who allow me to make my dreams come true and who have overcome SO much and keep on truckin’.  I give thanks for the great job opportunity in front of me, for the support of the people around me and for the many little Girl Scouts and their cocaine aka cookies.

Questions answered

Since the announcement of my new job, I have been getting a lot of the same questions so I figured I would answer them all here:

Q.  Are you really going to DC101?

A.  Yes.  Allaccess, FMQB and RAMP don’t lie.

Q. Why aren’t you going by “Ty” at DC101?

A. Elliot’s producer is named Tyler…so I will be going by my last name on air.  Most people will continue to call me Ty and I will still answer to that.  I will also answer to Bailey, Panda, Tydig, Diggery and pretty much anything else friendly.

Q.  Are you moving to DC? 

A. Yes I am.  Well technically, I am moving to Bethesda short term with a friend.  From there I will decide where I am living permanently.

Q. What is your job going to be?

A. I will be doing middays and the local music show “Local Lix.”  I will not be doing programming or music directing. 

Q.  How do you feel about all this?

A.  I am bummed to be leaving Baltimore.  I am still in shock that I am going to get to work with such a great staff and at a legendary station.  I am excited to focus on being a jock.  I miss the days of being exhausted after my show because I ran a ton of calls and was so into it that it was cardiovascular.  I am also excited about having hobbies again. 

Q.  Where will you get Franks Red Hot?

A. I am taking a case from the mailroom with me, then I will have to go back to buying it.  Sad.

Q.  Will you visit Baltimore?

A. Yes, mostly during baseball season.

Q.  What is your contact information?

A.  My cell is the same, my email address still works right now but you can start using Bailey at DC101.com or my personal email is tybaileyradio@gmail.com

I think that pretty much sums ‘er all up.  Feel free to hit me with additional questions!  Thank you all for the well wishes and congratulations.  I am very grateful and lucky to have such great people in my life.

Moving is a common theme in my life.

So I am moving…again.  It’s not across the country or anything but, thing is, I don’t even like my stuff. I have a bunch of crap I keep moving from city to city and never use or even unpack!

But alas, not this time.

I am donating all my cds to tunes 4 troops. I am donating anything I haven’t worn in 5 months to the battered women’s shelter. I am going to sell my futon and other furniture on craigslist and if no one buys it, good will it is.

I feel liberated and I haven’t even done it yet. Just the thought of moving with a few boxes and nothing else…good god I am almost sexually aroused right now.

VICTORY IS MINE!
