Mix 100.3 - All the Hits - Free Money Song!

Emily's Blog

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!
 

My New Thing

by Emily Makinzie posted May 8 2014 5:59AM
I have mentioned many times before that I wanted a pen pal. A good, old fashioned, hand written, pen pal. I found a few sites that provided you with a pal across the globe, but all the messages were via email. It didn't scratch my pen pal itch sufficiently.
 
Recently, a listener told me about Postcrossing, a post card exchange group. This perked my interest, and after further investigation, I am happily enrolled. 
It's really simple, you create and account and request some addresses to send off your post cards. So far, I have sent cards to Russia, Belarus, Germany, China, the Netherlands, and New York. (Ha.) I'm still waiting patiently for my post cards to trickle in, but the anticipation has created an excitement for me that I haven't felt since I was a kid. I'm getting something in the mail! A special hand written message from a stranger somewhere on this planet! A treasure from another land! Something in my mail box besides a bill!
And now my new 'thing' is to find the coolest, quirkiest, most unique post cards to send off. I shan't be the girl in Colorado who sends generic mountain post cards purchased at the drug store, oh no! My first batch of delightful post cards includes hand drawn pictures of Colorado monuments and locations, like Red Rocks and Cave of the Winds, black and white cards fromthe 1950s that support pet adoption, and a portrait of the last Mountain Man in Colorado... (and his pet dog, fox, and skunk.) 
To me, sending quick, personal messages is becoming a lost art. I'm not even sure kids are taught how to write in cursive anymore! So this is my own little way of keeping thoughtfulness alive.
Well. And keeping the post card business afloat.
