Part 2: LADY LUCK HAS THROWN ME A BONE.
if you're my friend you will read this entire "way-too-long" entry. i'll give you a cookie.
Alright, so we all know that The Strokes situation worked out beautifully.
This next situation though, god... I don't even know how to describe this. By FATE alone did this happen. Let me explain ...
On any normal monday at 7:45pm - I WOULD BE WORKING AT FEDEX.
On any normal day anytime - I WOULD NOT BE LISTENING TO 92.3FM.
On any normal-ish day - I WOULD NOT BE LISTENING TO THE RADIO AT ALL.
AND On any day ever - WOULD I NEVER BE THIS LUCKY.
THIS PARTICULAR monday ...
a. I had a sudden urge to take a random day off of work as my personal day. I have no clue WHY i chose march 22nd, i just had the urge.
b. I wore out my von bondies CD in its player so i was skimming through the radio.
c. I JUST SO HAPPENED ... within the 10 second time slot i allowed for each station to catch my attention, HEAR 92.3 announce it was giving away tickets to the sold out DARKNESS SHOW AT THE AGORA.
ummm ... FREAKS.
okay, i totally procrastinate on buying concert tickets ... so of course, I was left hi-and-dri with the sold out darkness shizzz. so i told myself, when i heard the DJ announce that ... that I WOULD TRY MY DARNDEST to win those tickets. THAT I WOULD AT LEAST put in THAT much effort.
the DJ comes back on the air and is like "alright we're doing this contest, i'm going to get three winners here at extreme radio and you have to sing the highest part of the "i believe in a thing called love" song - the part that goes touching youuuuuuuooooouuuu touching meee eee eee touching you GOD you're touching Meeeee EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE"
and the one thing i have learned working at my radio station is that EVERYONE gives up WAY TOO SOON on giveaways. everyone stops calling in within the first minute.
SO ... literally ten minutes into the busy signals ... it starts ringing.
at this point i'm like ... OHGODOHGODOHGODOHGODPLEASEGODGODGODGODPLEASE.
AND BAM! THE DJ ANSWERS THE PHONE "92.3 EXTREME GO!" and boom! here i am singing my ass off for all of cleveland to laugh at. LOUD OUT OF TUNE AND BEAUTIFUL.
and i am so horribley out of tune and ridiculous sounding.
but i did it all like a fucking genius.
for the next, literally, HOUR, the DJ has all of cleveland call in and vote for their favorite singer. AND THAT WINNER, THAT SOLE WINNER, RECEIVES 2 TIX TO THE SOLD OUT CONCERT AND BACKSTAGE/MEETNGREET PASSES. OMFG.
and like, between each and every song the dj would either air a recap of me and the other two contestants singing OR she would air herself asking people who they were voting for.
the phones were COMPLETELY off the hook for the next entire hour.
i was totally kicking ass. practically every person she would ask "92.3 extreme - who ya votin' for?" they would be like "dude, i gotta give it to jennifer" or "i'd like to vote for the girl" or "definitely jennifer, she just rocked". the DJ even made out a point of telling everyone how badly i was kicking the other two contestants asses. yes. i am THAT GOOD.
grant it, half of the voices were steve. lmao, just kidding - only two of them. HA.
before i even know it, BOOM ... my cell phone starts ringing. AND IT'S FUCKING 92.3 EXTREME. i motherfucking won the tickets. grant it, i start freaking out ... typical insane woman on the phone.
jennifer: LAUGHS INSANELY - omgomgomg THANK YOU omg i'm dyyyyyyyyyyyyyying"
lady dj: DUDE YOU CAN'T DIE YOU'VE GOT A CONCERT TO GO TO GIRL.
jennifer: omg thank you thank you thank you
lady dj: LAUGHS. you're a riot AND GIRL YOU KICKED THE OTHER TWO GUYS' ASSES.
jennifer: omg thank you so much, and thanks to the people who have been voting. omg AHH.
lady dj: aww you're too cute - you're gonna have a blast girl - you WON!
and now ... hmm ... who shall be the guest of honor? well god knows that this situation has created the golden oppurtunity for someone special ... hmmm (wink).
BUT. i might just settle for anne.
WHO THE FUCK CARES OMFG I'M MEETING THE DARKNESS. I FUCKING ROCK.
my ego is so big it hurts.
