Hi it’s Charly, KOIT's proud #CrazyCatLady & avid dog lover. When I’m not hanging with my five furry family members, I’m volunteering with animals, enjoying a Bay Area microbrew or touring a dog-friendly vineyard.  >^..^<

Right before I got off the air this morning, my boss said to me, "Come to the conference room at 10am.  I have a surprise for you."  

A KITTEN!  Not to keep, because he knows I already have enough animals of my own, but he had a meeting with the Marin Humane Society, and they promised to try to sneak an animal up.  He knew that would brighten up my day after a hard (but productive) week.  He was RIGHT!  My energy soared.  Animals truly are the best therapy.       (below) Video of me squealing with delight.  Hold your ears.

Note: My comment "I wish we could, too." was in response to someone else's
comment off-camera, "I wish we could have a station cat."


The part that made me laugh the hardest is that our building management company doesn't allow animals in our building.  I got kicked out 3 years ago for having my tiny little dog Brooklyn at work.  (Not by KOIT, but by building management.)

This is a THERAPY KITTEN!  She perked me up and got a lot more work out of me.  

(above) My boss (left) laughs at the way I turn into a puddle of mush over a kitten.

Thanks Marin Humane Society.  Always great meeting with you and looking forward to your events.  And by the way, Merlin the Kitten is available for adoption.  But only to a really, really, really good home!  >^..^<

Because I am assuming you don't want to see what it looked like BEFORE it had to
be fixed.  The city employees wouldn't let me near the holes in the road anyway.
Safety precautions & liabilities.  I get it, but they didn't realize how curious I was.

They also assured me I really didn't want to get too close, either.  I feel sorry for
the house(s) on my block who discovered it the hard way.  (Luckily, I didn't smell it.)

Sadly, our street had just been freshly paved about a year & a half ago.  BUT, if we're talking about old, broken sewer pipes, than I am thankful for the City of SF crews!

This is my first stream-of-consciousness blog.  It is definitely an experiment.  I am typing everything that comes into my head as it is coming in, so that I can finally come up with an idea to write about today.  

I can tell you one thing, I certainly dislike the typos I am typing, because they slow me down as I have to go back and correct each word.  It KILLS me to leave in a typo... or even worse.... a grammatical error.  Nooooo improper grammar!  Not on my watch.  

If I left in any bad grammar, my English-major mother would break out in a rash, without even knowing why she was having this horrible attack.  The words that would be improperly thrown together would emanate their own sort of energy that would envelop her.  Yikes, I can't have that!  

Ok, end of my stream of consciousness that resluted... omg that's too funny, so I have to leave it in.... RESULTED in finishing my KOIT blog on time to post for the day. 

And there wasn't even one word about animals or wine or food!  See, I do have other issues that travel through my mind.  Of course now I can't stop thinking about cats.
Cats drinking wine at the buffet.

End of experiment.  That won't happen again.... anytime soon.

First and foremost, I'm a DARK chocolate lover.  But I DO appreciate milk chocolate when it is from a quality chocolate manufacturer.  

And I will say that milk chocolate does pair very well with Chardonnay.
So I've found a good use for milk chocolate in my life!  Vive le chocolat!

(above) My ecstasy upon finding the exquisite Le Grand Courtage Sparkling Wine from France!  (Seriously delicious!)

Last Thurs at Santana Row in San Jose was a lovely evening for "Ladies Out Loud".
The wine glasses glinted beautifully in the sun.....


Although Teri King & I were sad when our glasses mysteriously became empty!


Voila, happy again at LB Steak with this beautiful tasting lounge by Le Grand Courtage

(above) Marlon Wayans takes a selfie with me, which accounts for the blurriness!

Always a pleasure to have Marlon cracking us up!  He dropped into the KOIT Studio, so I made him choose between Andrew's Oakland A's or my SF Giants.


Marlon Wayons  Fri-Sun, July 24-26 at Tommy T's Comedy Steakhouse, Pleasanton, CA

Another great day at O.co for the A's as Andrew & I met lots of great KOIT listeners. 


Andrew's mom, Mary, was our best customer!

Scooping for charity at the Oakland A's Root Beer Float Day in July
of 2012, with the A's General Manager Bob Melvin in my booth!  

He was bombarded with fans, so I couldn't get any work out of him
and had to do all the scooping myself.

He admitted to me he was glad to get out of "scooping duty".
I was lucky to get a photo in!  smiley

The dogs in commercials do it.  And since Sasha's a German Shepherd, she's hella smart.  She is catching on pretty quickly.

If I leave her in the car and go into a store, when I come out, she's already sitting in the driver's seat.  I think she'll be up to speed soon enough to drive
me to KOIT PETS events around the Bay Area.

The hardest part of the whole process is getting the appointment for her driver's license test at DMV, sometime within this century!

Meet Baron Von Tanhauser, my friend's new German Shepherd puppy.
He's 2 months old and beyond adorable.  I almost just took him home with me!
(Of course I dildn't.  She'd never invite me over again.  And I'd be in jail now!)
