I'm very sad to post that my beloved cat Mia passed away last month. she came into our family when I was 11 and she has been there for every milestone in my life. when I moved to Santa Cruz, she moved with me. she was my baby. when Vaughn was born, since she was used to being an only child her whole life, we decided it was best for her to live with my mom. thank you mama for taking care of Mia during her last year where I knew she was loved, cared for and very happy. we will all miss you my dear cat!
I've been entering the Travel Trivia on Live with Regis and Kelly's website pretty much since Vaughn was born. 17 months later, it totally paid off! June 4th at 6:19am, I answered my phone and it was Kelly Ripa and Anderson Cooper! are you kidding me? fully sporting the groggy morning voice, I managed to make both of them and the audience laugh a few times. I was actually having funny banter with Anderson Cooper at 6 in the morning! during the conversation, I ran to my laptop, logged on and had Google ready to go. since I started working Mon-Wed, I record the show everyday, but don't always have the chance to watch it. I wouldn't have known the answer if I didn't Google it... luckily it was an an easy answer to find. What is MC Hammer's real name? STANLEY! I will know that for the rest of my life! I won, I won! I actually won a 7 day trip to Barbados! I am still in shock! after watching it a few times, I wish I would've said more to them... when will I ever get another chance? but I was happy with how it turned out, and how all the stars aligned to make this possible.
never in one million years, did I think my 10 seconds a day to enter my name would pay off. I am so thrilled! anything is possible! it is crazy!
