Hello, my friends!
 
I am over the moon to be a part of the Dom and Jane Show. I am finally living proof of that old saying, “If you love what you do, you never have to work a day in your life.”
I was born in New York, although I call myself a Ken Caryl girl… A Chatfield graduate to be exact. And my many adventures have brought me everywhere from Europe to California. The stage of Shakespeare’s Globe, to the lights of the Las Vegas Strip. And after years of soul searching, two broken engagements, four different colleges, and millions of hours in the restaurant industry, here I am. Yappin yer ear off on Mix 100.
 
A quick breakdown of moi includes, but is not limited to:
 
1. I would gratefully eat sushi for each meal every day of my life if I could afford it.
 
2. My dirty little secrets include, but are not limited to: a full-on nail polish addiction, Bryan Fuller television series, live bar trivia, Goonies/Pretty Woman quotes, Daddy-Daughter meals, boxed-wine consumption, Marilyn Monroe and Beatles snapshot collecting, and The Gin Blossoms. I freaking love the Gin Blossoms.
 
3. My doggie, Kramer, is the cutest Shih Tzu on the planet; quite possibly the cutest dog in the world. It’s really not fair to other pups how ridiculously adorable my Kramer is.
 
4. Friends are my family, and my family is my life… And oh how I love to embarrass my sucker friends and family.
 
5. I, without fail, say what everyone is thinking but too scared to voice out loud. It’s a blessing… And a curse. (As I’m sure you know from listening to the show!)
 
Let's be friends! I'm good for a chuckle or two. Find me on Facebook. And please, keep listening to the Dom and Jane Show weekday mornings for hours of laughs, stories, and general merriment. You, my dears, rock my world.  Check out my Instagram, Facebook or blog below!

I do not have kids.
I like to sing along to the Beatles, not the Frozen soundtrack.
And, I mean, they cry over everything.
And these heeeee-LARIOUS pictures prove it.
Enjoy...

In my bio, (please see above), one of the first things I admit about myself is that I'm totally addicted to nail polish. So much so, that one day I met up with a girlfriend for drinks. My nails were not painted. And she asked me if I was ok. My nails are kind of my thing. (Besides charming wit and a love for animals dressed as humans, that is.) I paint my nails, I draw on my nails, I design my nails, I blend, I blot, I file, I glitter, I speckle, I do it all. And I love everything about the subtle amazingness that is nail art.

Dom found an article listing, in someone's opinion, 12 flawless albums. The most recent album on the list was released in 2005, which we all agreed that meant iTunes kind of ruined the production of albums as a whole. Artists focus on making a hit now, they no longer create a journey of musical brilliance. After all, downloads are more important than being true to your craft. What a world, eh? Way to go, iTunes.
Well below is the list. I gotta be honest, I am not familiar with a third them. But you can bet your bottom dollar I'm going to check them out! (And by 'check them out' I of course mean listen to at least 12 seconds of 3 random songs on iTunes. See? I'm a part of the problem!)
And I simply must throw my suggestions in the flawless ring. Duh.

This is a very twisty-curvy story, so bear with me.
I've told you about my postcard exchange group. Well I ask people to write me with their current favorite song. A gal in Poland told me she loves the song Massachusetts by Ylvis. (Those are the devils that sing that What Does the Fox Say wreck.) (Seriously, what are they listening to in Poland??!)
Well the Massachusetts song is pretty funny... especially if you have an aunt and uncle in said state.
So I told him, my uncle that is, about the song. "What a great slogan for your fine territory." I said. (Please sense the sarcasm.)
To which my uncle replied with numerous songs better suited as the theme song for MA.

As the resident red on the Dom and Jane Show, I feel it my duty to (attempt) to explain the difference between glorious red heads and stunning gingers.
Gingers are a bit paler than reds. Sometimes their hair has a neon quality to it. They are also the elusive 'strawberry blondes' of the world.
Reds have a deeper shade of color. We get mistaken for brunettes, but oh no my friend. We are reds.
All gingers are red heads, but not all red heads are gingers.
My mom (this is her high school pic, awwww) = Red head.
Me (wasn't I adorbs, awwww) = Ginger. (However I have grown into a red.)
Julia Roberts = Red.
Ed Sheeran = Ginger.

All red heads should be approached with caution, we do bite.

I just got back from a lovely vacation in Florida. My Daddio and my bestie live there, and I took advantage of free room and board near the ocean. While being near water did make my heart happy, as the saying goes there is NO PLACE like home. Sheesh. Colorado, I heart you.
I took notes during my trip, because Florida truly is a different world. I totally appreciate Flaaaa for it's quirky beauty, and here are some important things I felt needed to be shared...

A man who reads AND understands emotions??! Not possible! 
Har har har... 
But really, I know the only certified human in the state of Colorado who can read micro expressions to gauge truthfulness and credibility. Sounds pretty cool, but what does it mean?
It means that you can tell a story to my pal Phil, for example a story about getting married to your S.O., and he will know if you're really happy about it. Or sad about it. Or angry about it. Oh snap!
And besides being fantastic entertainment at the bar, reading micro expressions is incredibly useful in serious situations. Hiring interviews, for example. Fraud or murder investigations. Divorce cases. It's a long list.
We talked to Phil on the show last week, and it was fascinating. Check it out, you'll want to get Botox.
And if you want to learn more about his skillz, yes skillz with a 'z', click here.

You may or may not know that I am in a postcard exchange club of sorts. It's a website that I joined, and after you create an account, you start sending and receiving post cards from other members all over the planet. It's pretty freaking cool. I don't know what I enjoy more, finding the perfect card to send out, or getting a little treasure from somewhere out there. (Cue Fievel singing.) 
At this point, I'm sure you want to know two things: 
1.) What is this fantastic postcard exchange group?
and
2.) What are some of the coolest cards you've received, Emily?
Well, read on and I shall take care of you, dear.

If the Emily of yesteryears could see the Emily of today, I think I would be jealous of me. One of the many examples of said-jealousy is coming up this Thursday. I will be hanging out with Marc Roberge at a golf tournament. Who?? Marc. The man with one of the coolest voices in music. The guy who leads a group of musicians in honest and pure artistry. The dude who is the lead singer of the band O.A.R. Holla.

There was a time when the soundtrack ruled. They were an epic extension of a movie, and sometimes they were even better than the film itself. At one point, I think my personal CD collection was equal parts albums and soundtracks. I mean, The Lion King. (Shut up, you know you had it.) Pulp Fiction. Grease. Purple Rain. Saturday Night Fever. Shall I go on?
