Daily we get a heaping of hyperbole sent by e-mail and every once in a while, we see something that makes us smile. Andrea Morris sends out a hype sheet weekly that up-dates media and in particular radio station music directors about the acts and their recordings that she’s working. Her prose is always upbeat, the facts often surprising and mostly the music she’s behind is worth a listen to. She surprised us last night with her weekly e-mailer, headlined ‘Happy Birthday to Me’. Here’s what she wrote….
Hello!! I had a blast last week at Manitoulin Country Fest and now I'm set to have yet another great weekend. This one better be epic, as it's my BIRTHDAY WEEKEND! Well, my birthday is actually Monday, August 15, which (for all you Catholics out there) happens to be the Feast of the Assumption. I grew up in a VERY Catholic household, so throughout my childhood years, my birthday was spent in church. Yes, laugh if you want, but rest assured, I have definitely made up for lost time in my adulthood. I would say my boyfriend is planning something wonderful, but he has an infected tooth and is spending the days and nights laying in bed, moaning like a ghost and, frankly, I feel like I live in a haunted house. But not even this can spoil my wonderful mood as I love my birthday and I love celebrating it and I love a day devoted to ME. I also LOVE adds on all my fabulous tunes, and of course, you know that makes the BEST birthday present ever!!!!!
