Double-Fisting My Way Through

On 20, Sep 2012 | No Comments | In Musings | By Lindsey

Oh, how sweet of me.

Ummmm, no. Both for me. The first one I polished off before 4:30 a.m.. The second one went with me on the set.

I can’t tell you how proud I am of myself right now. Yes, a toot my own horn blog. I’m not saying I did a very good job or looked “with it” at all beginning at 4:30, but this is the thing, I normally go to sleep between 3 & 4 a.m. Instead, your girl was sitting in the anchor chair alert and smiling four days this week. I can say, my news director Tammy Phillips told me today we had no hate calls with me on the desk and I assume that also means no calls asking if I was drunk.  When I watched back I did look kinda manic — like I was going to hop out of my seat and make all my Mid-South friends some coffee while they kicked back and enjoyed the aroma from their kitchen table. You see, I really was happy. Happy to be awake, happy to be alive and thrilled to watch the sun come up on our sky cam over the Mississippi River. How exciting to know people were waking up and (hopefully) we were helping them get moving. That’s pretty darn cool, or maybe I’m just tired.

I know this. I leave Memphis on a train bound for New Orleans at 6:30 tomorrow morning. After waking up at 2:45 a.m. the last four days, 5:45 is going to be a piece of cake!! Bring it, Amtrak. choooo chooooo and Hotty Toddy!!! Here’s to us hopefully winning the one Ole Miss game I attend this season.
