What’s happening Wednesday OKC with the Eggman!

So what a crazy Memorial Day Weekend, huh? Hard to believe June starts on SATURDAY! All these great events benefiting the tornado victims are incredible. The OKChefsRelief raised $40,000 alone! Amazing! And the donations coming in by the millions! Oh and I did NOT get my tickets to the Healing in the Heartland concert. I’m fine with watching it on tv because I just can’t wait to see the performers and the crowd. I’m super pumped. Of course if tickets became available to purchase I would buy them.

Thanks for having me on Eggman & Shawn Carey! Listen every Wednesday morning, 7:30 am on KZLS The True Oldies Channel.

First Friday

Happy end of the week! Did everyone survive another 100++ day yesterday? My only beef was about my new OG+E Smart Meter program.It makes my house super hot during the 2-7pm peak hours and then it takes my house from 7pm-… I don’t know when, to recover. I’m sure there’s a quick fix for it. You know… I’m just one step away from my phone. I could call customer service about it but I’m just too hot, too lazy! I still endorse this program and recommend it.

Oh and also I had haters on one of my client’s pages because I posted about the gymnast winning the gold before it was televised. I feel if you don’t want to get early results, it’s best to stay off Facebook. I just deleted the post because it was getting brutal.

Here’s what’s on my mind:

  • The Flaming Lips will perform on Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report” as part of comedian Stephen Colbert’s recently announced “Pepsi Presents StePhest Colbchella ’012: Rocktaugustfest.” Taping August 10 then replays of different bands on the show.
  • Jimmy Fallon to possibly host the Oscars? Dear Jimmy Fallon: I love you! My sister and I are working on getting tickets to see him this late fall. Fingers crossed!
  • Brewing beer locally seems like a lot of science work. I salute people like J.D. Merryweather and his COOP Ale Works crew.
  • Note to self: build indoor dog walk. Good for hot summer & cold winter walking. My little Pomeranian’s paws just get so hot. When she gets home she soaks her paws in iced water. Seriously. We have not walked in a couple days actually.

Leslie’s OKC for this weekend!

This is from artist Heather Gorham. Her works will be at the JRB Art Gallery tonight!

  • Les Debris presents American Indian Art in Paris Reception and Exhibition, 5-8pm (this mother/daughter/granddaughter team are simply precious!)
  • First Friday Gallery Walk, Paseo Arts District, 6-10pm (lots of Facebook invites for each gallery – it’s very cool to see the energy).
  • Opening Reception for Generation Next: Chapter Two. Temporary exhibit by Desmond Mason in our Tulsa World Gallery. Tonight 6-8pm, Oklahoma Heritage Museum
  • Bank of America’s Museums on Us  first weekend free admission month for cardholders. Includes these fabulous Oklahoma museums: Oklahoma City Museum of Art, the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, the Gilcrease Museum and the Philbrook Museum of Art…great air conditioning too!
  • Total Recall has opened…thinking about it. Loved the 1990 version. Reviews are meh. Do I care?
  • OKCMOA is playing an independent film called Safety Not Guaranteed Friday-Sunday. Lots of social media buzz for it. It has Parks n’ Recs Aubrey Plaza (April) – love her!
  • The Toy & Action Figure Museum is celebrating International Superhero Day on Saturday. Everyone is encouraged to dress up as their favorite Superhero. T&AFM is really wanting to set a world record for most people in costume!
  • Libraries are now open on Sunday, 1-6pm. I heard rumor they’re designated “cool zones” during this heat wave. Air conditioning and WiFi is the best!
  • Salsa at the Devon Energy Sunday Twilight Concerts, Myriad Botanical Gardens, with Son del Barrio with Salsa/Meringue music.

Happy odd/even water rationing. I am on the “odd” side. I watered promptly this morning. I’m fighting the good fight!
