Yet another reason to hate Bakersfield radio.
Taken from bakersfield.com...
Pirate Radio has been sunk. It's no longer flying the skull and crossbones on its main mast. It has walked the plank -- and any other awful metaphor you can pull out of your pirate's chest.and...
"Hot Hits 93.1 will play ALL of today's hottest hits from pop to hip-hop," explained Monday's news release from AGM California.
"We'll play the hottest hits you're familiar with from Hot 94.1, and all of the pop, rock and crossover records that are not being played locally," Program Director J Reed said in the release.
There goes my radio listening days.

My last post was rather unpleasant, so I thought I'd share some funny stuff with y'all today. My son sent me the best Mother's Day card ever this year. On the front it had tree with a single acorn falling to the ground and it read, "They say the nut doesn't fall far from the tree." Inside it said, "And that scares the hell out of me." When I called him to thank him, we laughed about the card and then he said, "It's funny cuz it's true." Thanks son.
I just found these pics on the internet and they cracked me up. Enjoy!

There's a couple of seriously bizarre and disturbing stories in the news this morning. Yesterday morning and entire family was shot up and it seems that no one knows who did it. (The picture above was in the paper today, along with little red dots showing how many times each person was shot. I don't know why I found this hilarious.) The father, Anthony Walker, was shot 8 times. Apparently he is one tough cookie, cuz he didn't die. His pregnant wife, Marisha, was shot four times and she also survived, but her unborn child did not. Two children, both aged six and yet somehow not twins, were also shot. Evidently someone really didn't like this family.
The second story is even more disturbing. A four year old boy was found naked and bleeding on the floor of his home by his neighbors. After being taken to the hospital he told authorities, "Daddy ate my eyes." WAIT! WHAT!?! Yup his obiviously crazy as hell father litterally bit his son's eye out AND HE ATE IT!!! Oh. My. God. He tried to eat the other one too and severly damaged it. The he took an axe to his own leg and tried to hack it off.
This brings a whole new meaning to the phrase, "Daddy's having a bad day."

So, the Alley Cat is closing down for a few weeks to give herself a face lift. It's the first time the historic bar will be closed in 34 years! I think it's a bit ironic that the place closes down right after my husband lands a job there. That's just his luck.
Anyway, we will being heading down to the Cat tonight, the last night it'll be open for awhile, and we're encouraging everyone else to head down and show their support. It'll be a hoot. AND if we get everyone to drink all the booze my husband won't have to pack it up later!
If you can't make it out tonight, I hope you can make it down for the Grand Re-Opening in May.

Apparently the police made a little mistake recently - they lost a 'high risk, sexually violent, child rapist, and predator.' According to the flier the Sheriff's Department release, "Riley was convicted in 1979 for kidnapping with the intent to commit rape, rape by force, and oral copulation with a minor under 14 years of age. Since then Riley has had numerous other non sexual violent crime convictions." Really!? The first question that comes to my mind is - WHY THE HELL WAS THIS GUY RELEASED IN THE FIRST PLACE?? Everybody knows when they release creeps like this guy, they go commit even more heinous crimes.
Don't these people ever watch American Justice or Cold Case Files??

Oscar and I watched the news last night and sure enough – there was the car chase that nearly wiped him out. They caught the cracked out looking creep after a bizarre chase that covered downtown, the southwest and half of
I’m sure glad he didn’t hurt anyone else.

There is a newly wed couple in Kernville none to pleased with how their wedding went. Not because the flower girl tripped or the mother-in-laws got into a fist fight (I actually saw that one happen for real) but because the minister who married them is a convicted child molester. (No – he’s not Catholic.)
Johnny and Wendy Otero wanted a small wedding in their home, so they picked up a list of people licensed to perform the ceremony from the Kern County Clerk’s office. The couple chose Russell Berry from the list, and stopped by to help the pair tie the knot. Later, when Wendy showed her wedding photos to her teenaged daughter, the girl pointed out that the minister is a child molester. What I want to know is - how the hell did she know that? Does she sit around checking out the whack jobs on Megan's Law website all day? (If so - whew! I'm glad I'm not the only one.)
Johnny and Wendy were so upset by the whole thing they canceled their honeymoon and are planning to have another ceremony officiated by someone else creepy - and their raising hell with the clerk’s office. Ann Barnett, the KC auditor, basically said ‘Hey man! That’s your problem - not mine! We just print out the list.’ Of course this is the same chick who chose to not marry ANYONE rather than marry THE GAYS! (I bet she’s fun to hang out with.)
My favorite part to this whole story is the minister/sex offender’s response to the outrage – “There’s a lot of ministers that have criminal pasts.”
Hmmm…. maybe he is Catholic after all.
My husband just called me freaking out. Apparently he got caught up in the middle of a massive car chase going on right now near West High. Luckily he missed being cremated by the suspect by just inches. He said there about a dozen police cars chasing an SUV speeding around with one flat tire. Craziness!
I'll tell you more when I find out what happened.

Okay – I’m going to come right out and say it. I think people have gone WAY overboard with all the “social networking” or what ever you want to call it. You got your blogs, and your My Space, and your Facebook, and your Twitter, and your texting…. What the hell? I honestly don’t care to know that much about people I went to high school with. Sure, I signed up for all this stuff too, but frankly, I can’t keep up with it. I checked my twitter account today and discovered I have 60 people following me – and I haven’t tweeted since last year! What the hell am I supposed to say?
“Hey Everyone - I just farted! Have great day!”

If you're interested in meeting Mr. Bake Town, you can catch a peek here. (Scroll down to the bar scene.) He recently started working at the Alley Cat on Saturday afternoons.
Please feel free to come down and join us, 10:00 to 2:00, and you too may be fortunate enough to meet the "Trick or Treat" lady.
You should see her from the front.
