You know, I've been here for a week, but today was my first day on air... and that is always more stressful than your 'other' first day.
It started with an intro from Susan Siman and Eric Franke for Live at 5 (scroll to about 27:00.) And then, the first 6 p.m. newscast.
I was hoping it would feel good because my day started at 4 a.m. when I woke up with burning hives from a food allergy. I drove from downtown Madison all the way to Middleton in search of a 24-hour pharmacy. In desperation, I tweeted for help! I got it, but it was too late. Around 5:30 a.m., I came home defeated. I went to sleep and woke up with fewer itches. I kind of felt like I had hickeys all over my body - I debated even wearing a turtleneck to work... but I digress.
Then, I hit major construction on Mineral Point Road on the way to work. I was so afraid I was going to be late.
When I made it to work, I noticed some major, gooey, sticky stuff on my passenger car door. Kind of looked like sap or coffee.
Still, DAY 1 ON AIR HAS ACTUALLY BEEN VERY GOOD... LOTS of fun. I'm coming back tomorrow! Thanks to Billy Stanley for clipping this!
