ABOUT ME

Member name: 
EileenR
About Me: 
I am a middle school teacher & mom of four kids. I first heard Straight No Chaser around Christmas 2008. I was driving to work, flipping radio stations, when I came across "12 Days of Christmas". I hadn't heard an intro by a DJ, so at first it sounded like a regular, serious cover of the holiday standard. Once the SNC antics began, I was laughing out loud and I kept laughing & grinning through the rest of the song. I probably looked like a goof to anyone driving by, but I don't care. Straight No Chaser music still brings a smile to my face. Since becoming active on this site, I have met (both online and in person) many other Chasers. What a great group of people have been brought together by our shared love of all things SNC!
City: 
Bel Air
State: 
Maryland
Hobbies: 
taking pictures (mostly of my kids), staying up way too late surfing the internet, reading (which I get little time for due to raising the aforementioned little kids), singing (mostly in the car and at church, where the audiences aren't too judgmental) Mostly I'm too tired to have any spare time or remember what I like to do for a hobby!

United States
Nickname: 
Mommy

blueish/greenish/greyish- depends on my mood, the weather, what I'm wearing

Name Your Top 5 Favorite Foods: 
pizza, chocolate, Maryland steamed crabs, steak, fresh fruit
Name Your Top 5 Favorite Books: 
I'm a middle school teacher and I rarely read grown up fiction. I really enjoyed the Harry Potter series, and I've always been fond of The Chronicles of Narnia. I love reading good books with my 9-year-old. I like biographies- Dr. Seuss and Mr. Geisel was a good one.
Name Your Top 5 Favorite Movies: 
too many to pick just 5, but here are a few: The Princess Bride, The Shawshank Redemption, lots of musicals (My Fair Lady, The Music Man, The Sound of Music), Bull Durham, Office Space, Mr. Holland's Opus, Parenthood
Name Your Top 5 Favorite Bands/Artists: 
Straight No Chaser, Huey Lewis & the News, Simon & Garfunkel, Rob Thomas, John Mayer, sooo many more, but those are the first 5 that sprang to mind

Hi, it has been a while so much. Im winnie, chaser in Japan.
I'm afraid I couldn't reply soon. M y response is on my profile, sorry.
This time, I send email to ask some questions if I may.
I've build SNC fan page in Japan and renewed the site in this month.
Then I wonder if I can use their photos on the official site for m y site and may I open the site?
It' NOT profit, just get more Japanes know about SNC.

I'm not sure I ever said congrats on earning COTM last month, Eileen. I apologize. :(

DottieK's picture

Thanks for the kind note of encouragement, Eileen!

Tara Marie Ahn's picture

Tara Marie Ahn's picture

Hey Eileen,

Just thought I'd congratulate you on COTM on here! (I'm hardly ever on here any more.)

Tara :)

Thanks, Eileen. I am feeling so much better. The meds are working, and at the right level now. I still have minor issues with bothe the Trigeminal Neuralgia, and the side effects from the meds. But it's 90% better!
I was glad they fixed that, because I often would forget and click the back button, and when you're on page 96 of the videos, and go back to page 1, it stinks! lol

Nesa's picture

Oh!!! Wow, your version is so much clearer! Thanks a million! I always wondered what the "BEEP" meant after some things they would say lol Really, thanks a lot! :D

Nesa's picture

Hey Eileen! Thanks for posting that Need A Laugh? discussion. Those videos and pictures are the best! So, I was browsing the site and I found a Ryan blog post about the origin of "beep." I got about halfway through and was totally confused. Think you could try to explain it for me? :)

Hey Sasha!

So long as that's all PBS specified as a condition with those photos, you should be all set to post! Feel free to verify with them directly if you are unsure, though. Can't wait to see them!

Thanks.. Happy holidays to you, as well!

Sure, soon as I get done telling my doctor's office that they need to make their fifth contact for per-auth with Express Scripts, and try to figure out how to compare their prices with Sam's Club when their website tells me Nexium is $30 for 30 days and $537 for $90 days. The woman on the phone, however, says it's actually $140-something and $400-something. Want to come occupy Wellpoint (the parent company of Anthem, who makes me use Express Scripts)? They're headquartered in downtown Indy. How many Chasers to you think I could get to show up and make noise?

S. Brandon's picture

I definitely need to get to your "fun" thread - just too freaking busy with this health care carp. Yes, still.

Sarah S.'s picture

Would you mind letting me know if and when he responds?

Sarah S.'s picture

Thank you for the help, I really appreciate it. :)

Sarah S.'s picture

I would be very appreciative, thank you. You know the funny thing is that I was at a meet and greet Saturday night and I completely forgot to mention it.

Sarah S.'s picture

Hey Eileen, thanks for responding. I'm afraid I don't have facebook, twitter, or any of those social network things. I don't know how often he checks his profile, so I thought it might be quicker and easier to just have somebody put it on twitter or something for me.

I did the cruise but it was a different Carnival ship. I imagine the venue sight is comparable though. It's like a night club. Some of the seating is tables and chairs but most is stadium seating. Keep in mind you're on a boat so it's not nearly as big as AC or Baltimore and of course there's no balcony. There id more of a wrap around effect so you could be sort of on the side of the stage.
I have no idea if this is only open for people who book the SNC cruise or how they're going to control it if it isn't. When I was on the cruise all of the entertainment was included. As I said to you before we're being charged about $450 more than what the standard cruise rate is if you look up this cruise on the Carnival site so I hope we're getting something really special! You can go to Carnival.com and look at all of the different decks. One shows the night club arrangement.
Hope it aqll works out for you!! Robin

Hi Eileen,
We met in Baltimore. The super chasers haven't weighed in yet (Kary,Cindyetc.) but I'm going. If you could go it would be great. It is a little pricey becasue you also have to fly there and back.All of the onboard food , snacks, coffee and juice are icluded as well as the entertainment. Honestly they are charging us about $450 more than a regular cruise would be at this time of year so I hope SNC really comes through! Any excursions are extra although there is a free bus that takes you into downtown Key West and in Cozumel there is a shopping area right at the dock. You can also stay on the ship or come back early and relax so you don't have to spend more money. I think it will be a blast but it's hard to make those decisions with young kids in school. Let me know if you have any other cruise questions. I did this exact same cruise on Carnival 2 years ago. Take care! Robin

Your new thread is so much fun! Great idea!

Brittain's picture

Well good I am glad you don't mind, I have over 114 saved on youtube that I watch all the time! It's hard to pick just a few. These guys are just so funny even when they forget a part!

1001. BEEP.

EileenR's picture

Oooh- with this comment, I am 8 away from 1000.

Hey, if I can get excited about the count of "likes" on SNC's FB page, I can get excited about this, too, right?

And no, I will not just randomly comment on any old thing here just to jack up my count!
