10 Things You Didn’t Know About CJ

Station Photo

When I asked CJ about the 10 things we didn’t know about him, he looked at me and said “you already know one of them, jerk!”  (There was a smile on his face, so I know that “jerk” was said with lots of love!  And vinegar, probably.)

What he was referring to was #1.  Last year, for Christmas, I bought him a small present (it was a gift card for a restaurant, if I remember correctly) and packaged it in a BIG box, at least 24×24.  What did I pack the rest of the box with?  Well, it’s #1 on the list below…

10 Things You Didn’t Know About CJ

  1. CJ dislikes coat hangers.  Especially the bare metal ones.  Hates them.  Will take a root canal before having to deal with coat hangers.  When I gave him that Christmas present and he opened it, as soon as he saw the hangers, he pushed the box away and said “Nope!”.  I had to remove the gift certificate, because he wasn’t going in “there”.  But, he loves vodka.

  2. CJ doesn’t like the wind (especially when it comes from Steve Wiley), unless it’s a breeze on the beach (with no Steve present, of course).  A breeze on the beach, with a vodka drink.
  3. CJ is named after a Yankee baseball player because his mom was a big fan.  (We don’t know if that ball player liked to drink vodka.)

  4. CJ really enjoys late-night snacks. (Vodka tonic; vodka martini; vodka and cranberry; vodka and orange juice; vodka and ice; vodka — no ice…you get the picture.
  5. CJ has a piece of Elvis Presley’s hair.  (I don’t know how he got it, and am afraid to ask, but it probably involved vodka.)

  6. CJ’s favorite food is fried shrimp.  Not some of these ‘popcorn’ shrimp-wanna-be shrimp that you find at some of the fast food establishments – real, true Gulf Shrimp, battered and fried to a golden brown.  With a vodka chaser.

  7. CJ was fired from radio twice by the owners of the radio station(s), and both have since apologized (after he promised “No more vodka at work”).
  8. CJ’s favorite color is blue (I don’t now if it has anything to do with Kube…)

    Vodka Blue
  9. CJ doesn’t care for mornings, and he loves the nighttime.  (Which, ironically, is when the vodka usually comes out…)
  10. We are very lucky to have CJ with us today, because he almost wasn’t: he was born premature, and many thought he wouldn’t live (including his own father). That’s when the doctor wanted to try a new procedure (which was still controversial at the time):  he doused CJ in vodka!  The rest is history….

    He was giggling like a little schoolgirl when he opened that present!!

I have worked for several different “bosses” in my lifetime; some good, some not so good.  CJ is one of the good ones (when he has been drinking vodka…)
