A Double Mr. Sparkles Kind of Day
So back to work after a min-vacation home. I got to watch Spanky Spangler attempt to kill himself by crashing into buses during Awful Knawful, oops, I mean Evil Kneivel days, and survived the drunken masses in uptown Butte. Back at KPAX, the normal director has taken his well deserved vacation leaving Keith and, kinda, me, in charge. Probably not such a good idea. At one point during the ten o'clock show, everyone in the control room was either age 20, 21, 24, or 25 with the only "responsible" adults being either on air or in the news room. Shockingly, we didn't screw up and adverted two near disasters during sports, one at 5:30 and another at 10. To top it all off, we got to use a double Mr Sparkles during Health Watch. A double Mr Sparkles night is always a good night at KPAX. The only thing better is a firewipe, which thankfully I have yet to get to use. Tomorrow we're having a potluck dinner between news casts. I'm making my famous, or infamous depending on who you ask, brownies. It should be fun, hopefully even a double Mr Sparkles kind of fun!! Hope everyone is enjoying the last days of summer!!!!
