Saturday 8 is a feature we bring to you almost every Saturday on WTIT: The Blog. A meme is presented with eight questions.The author for some time now is a lady named Lola. She is challenging to deal with on a variety of levels. We know she dislikes that we even do this feature because we do not take her or her meme very seriously. But we don’t take anything that seriously. Lola’s talent is to ask a meme question highlighting her thoroughly unique (mis-) use of language. She can manage to make the odds of actually understanding anything she writes or asks, close to zero. So it is unlikely that even a Mr. Spock Vulcan mind-meld would assist any of us figuring Lola’s questions out. We rationalize that it must be part of her “charm”. All quotes in bold are from Lola. Also, any spelling and grammar mistakes that are in Lola’s meme, we leave there. We wouldn’t want to mess around with her “art”.
sat-8 :: moving…i’ve just moved at work (sixth time in 16 months), and i’ll be moving into our new house next year. BWAHAHAHAHA. Why am I not surprised they keep telling you to move?
1. when was the last time you moved from one home to another?WTIT moved to The Gatewood Studio over three years ago. We now are in northern Connecticut because when not being a Tape Radio DJ, my other job is in Massachusetts. I usually move because of jobs or divorces.
2. when was the last time you moved at work? Huh? Lola even for you, there has to be a better way of asking whatever question this one is suppose to be about. I travel from liquor store to liquor store. So I move a lot. If by any chance you mean “changed jobs” rather than “moved jobs”, I started doing God’s work by selling alcohol about three months before I moved to The Gatewood Studio.
3. have you ever had any problems with a hired
mover? The last mover smashed my plasma HDTV, backed into my car, cracked the headboard to my bed and tried to sleep with my girlfriend. So, nothing serious. I would highly recommend them.
4. one day at work, i was given less than 24 hours to move my desk. what was the shortest amount of time you’ve had to move in?
Where did they make you move your desk? (Outside the building would be my best guess.) I’ve never been asked to move my desk, let alone with a time table. But here’s the difference between us, Lola: People actually like me. I know it is hard to believe. I do write a rather odd blog. I just can’t remember whether I thought WTIT: The Blog was odd before we started doing your Saturday 8 meme. But it certainly got odd, at that point.
5. in your house, what would be the hardest item to move and why? My fireplace. The bricks are so damn heavy. When I moved from The Walton Studio to The Hell’s Kitchen Studio fellow DJs Rock Rolling and Harvey Wallbanger got the damn thing stuck trying to put it in arrick storage. It wound up in my bedroom. I used it for my computer and it made an interesting conversation piece. My dates would say, “Who the fuck moves a fireplace and then puts it in their bedroom?” My response usually was, “Just take your clothes off and we can discuss masonry latter?” The ones who didn’t tell me to “fuck off” and then leave, were a ton of fun.
6. at your office/work, what would be the hardest item to move and why? My business fireplace. The bricks are so damn heavy. When I moved from my last job to doing God’s work fellow DJs Rock Rolling and Harvey Wallbanger got the damn thing stuck trying to put it in my office. It wound up in the lobby. We use it for a magazine rack and it made an interesting conversation piece. My customers ask, “Who the fuck moves a fireplace and the puts it in the lobby?” My response usually was, “Can you just take buy more liquor from me and we can discuss the fucking masonry latter?” They all tell me to “fuck off” and then leave, which isn’t helping my wallet at all.
7. if you had to move at work, describe your perfect office location (guinness taps optional!). Lola, was that a joke? We have been doing this meme since 1988 and you have never tried to be funny before. I mean intentionally. But these questions suck the big one today. I’m in sales, so my perfect office is my car. Please do not make me tell you that there are bricks from various fireplaces in my trunk. Well we had to cover that body with something.
8. if you had to move your home, describe your perfect home location. good schools? pub withing staggering-home distance? Move my home? The entire house? Nope, I quit at fireplaces. I’m not sure a house would fit in the moving van. And I actually like the “live near a pub” idea. Other than poor Hamied would have to find another job. Did someone help you with this question? Fess up, Lola. Oh, and a good school would be important. Since I cannot wait until I get remarried yet again so I can have a least four more kids…
We know we are a bit difficult with Lola. But how can we take someone who claims to has asked to be moved six times in sixteen months seriously? Does she even unpack the boxes? Put the voice mail in her name? Bring plants along? Does she know who invented liquid soap and why? Meanwhile the WTIT Blog returns next time with Stealing.
It’s Lola’s second favorite feature. Join us then.
After a radio, nightclub and television career of over 25 years,we still write and perform comedy with essentially the same group of guys that we started with over 50 years ago. We began as WTIT: Tape Radio and have kept the moniker ever since. We did comedy using this "WTIT Tape Radio" station as the backdrop. it is also a journal of a group of friends done in a radio morning show format playing the music of the era. We have every recording. We interviewed our girlfriends before “The Prom” or whatever. We shared growing up, getting married and having kids on WTIT. Later it was stories of divorces, new wives or girlfriends and grandchildren.
If you’re here for a laugh, we hope you enjoy your visit. If you’re here because of a cosmic accident where all of the web except this blog has gone, then we simply apologize. To learn more about WTIT visit WTIT.net. (View my
