Jim just wants to have fun!

As he himself said on air last night; he just wants to relax, have a couple (???) of beers, have fun, and enjoy his hobby. Poor Baby!!!

I must say, the sound of a forty-something man whining, at length, on air about something so inane, is unpleasant at best, stomach turning at worst! And when Jim whines, that southern accent breaks through, his voice goes up a notch or two, and the actual, physical sound of it is grating to the human nervous system!

I haven't heard Greg whining about changing diapers. Nor Ben about his antenna being cut, and I must say, I don't think I've ever really heard Art whine about anything (if so, his professional 'voice' hid it well, besides Art tends to sarcasm rather than whining)!

And poor Jim doesn't want all those folks bothering him by IM'ing him. I guess that as a broadcast engineer, he hasn't yet figured out how to turn off MSMessenger. (I have, I was so disgusted with him last night that I blocked him immediately at the end of our brief chat, not wanting to take the chance of him IM'ing me anytime soon. I unblocked him this afternoon though!)

That was long before he gave his 3 minute warning! "If you have anything important, IM me now, because in 3 minutes I'm gonna shut off Messenger". Then came a countdown; by minutes, then seconds!!! My guess is that no one was IM'ing him during that 'countdown' because they were laughing too hard. I know I was!

By the way, 'cause I KNOW you all are wondering, it was not me 'bothering' poor Jim! Jim and I had a fairly brief IM chat early on; Jim said 'he didn't want to talk about it' in a very terse, unmannerly way. I accepted that. But despite asking nicely WHEN we could talk about it; I was unable to pin him down. No wonder he's not married! He can not commit to even a chat! So I honestly don't know WHO was IM'ing him (if it was YOU, please email me and tell me all about it!).

But I think I know WHY!

Does anyone remember this year's on air event titled: 'The First Annual Woodshed Hall of Shame Induction Ceremony'??? Where Greg & Jim claimed to be: "Working to Combat Bad Manners & Poor Operating Practices"? During which they said they would: fight injustice wherever they found it????

Well, injustice was dropped right into Jim's lap last night and he chose to ignore it. He acknowledged it and made it public that he chose to ignore it; not deal with it later, or in another way, but IGNORE it. Not exactly 'combating bad manners or injustice', huh?

Jim has probably changed his mind as to exactly what constitutes 'injustice' since he was invited to Pahrump to make Demo Tapes and visit a couple of times recently...

Jim obviously has an extremely short memory! My guess is the folks who were IM'ing him didn't! Maybe Jim Watson - ki6gu should be inducted to next year's Woodshed Hall of Shame?
