7 Deadly Sins

In college, the semester before I became a radio DJ, my crush/friend Tom was a DJ and had a "7 Deadly Sins" segment. I, of course, wanted to be Lust....but that post was already taken (by my rival, no less!), so I instead "auditioned" to be Greed.

I'd make occasional guest appearances, and my chosen theme song was Madonna's "Material Girl". My most memorable appearance, and last, was when I was asked to sing "Happy Birthday, Mr. President", Marilyn-Monroe-style....and I forgot the tune to "Happy Birthday". I was beet-red with embarrassment, and improvised breathily, but still- who can't recall a simple tune they've heard a bazillion times?!


In honor of those good ol' college days, and this fun linky, and my efforts to be more personal on this blog, despite the fact that potential employers are judging me by it....
