Do they really get along? - 11/08/13

What happens during the commercial breaks of a newscast could, without a doubt, fill a sitcom.  Today, Bob, Erin, Craig and I had way too much fun... making fun of each other, making fun of ourselves and just generally having a good time.

People often wonder whether "talent" gets along in real life.  I'm lucky that we do. 

We sing songs and today's choices were mostly classic rock and country.  We talk fashion.  Bob and Erin still can't believe I bought my maroon pumps at Target.  Erin gives Bob a hard time.  Craig and agree on controversial topics and have our eyes rolling in sync. 

If we come back from break and you sense a little smile or hear a small laugh, just know that we love our jobs and enjoy spending time with each other.  And if you really want to get a glimpse into what goes on behind the scenes, tune into our live streaming!

Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

"STONER" ARRESTED FOR POT

ORANGE, Va. (AP) -- It's a twist on the old saying that when dog bites man, it isn't news, but when man bites dog, it is news. A "stoner" being arrested for pot possession isn't news. But when the "stoner" is named "Stoner" -- it's worth taking note of. This "Stoner" -- 42-year-old Paul Scott Stoner -- was arrested in Virginia. And authorities in the commonwealth say he is facing drug charges after police found more than $10,000 worth of pot at his home. He's charged with growing marijuana and having a firearm while in possession of more than a pound of marijuana. Stoner is free on bond, with a hearing set for next week.

PAY IT FORWARD

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Think of it as a "pay it forward" campaign -- on caffeine. A woman in Florida went to a Starbucks drive-thru in Florida on Wednesday and on top of the iced tea she ordered, she asked to pay for the caramel macchiato for the stranger in the car behind her. The man in the car behind returned the favor to the driver behind him -- and a chain reaction started that continued for hours. The store crew kept track -- and before it was over, there were 379 customers who were treated to a Starbucks drink then paid it forward -- or backward, if you want to look at literally. The last customer in the chain declined to pay for someone else's coffee, even though a barista explained the concept to her.

HERMIT IS OUT OF THE WOODS

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) -- If you run into a guy in Maine who seems just a little out of step with the modern world, do not ask: "What, have you been living in the woods for 30 years?" The answer might be yes. Christopher Knight has spent nearly three decades in the woods, away from society. He survived the brutal winters by swiping food from homes and camps. Knight's story is being told in the current issue of GQ magazine. He says he isn't crazy about the society he's being forced to re-enter. He says the world these days is too colorful, lacks aesthetics -- and is crude.
