Jen Austin

It's fun to pick on the boys in the office, fun to play music, and fun to talk to you all day at work. Thanks for listening! I grew up in a one-stoplight town in rural Nebraska. My whole family still lives there and I love going back to visit them, but I also love Texas. Barbecue, fajitas, and great live music....it's the place to be. I've lived in Texas for 16 years now. Austin, Dallas, and here. I've worked in radio from the moment I graduated from college. (The University of Nebraska...Go Huskers!) I've been on a hundred stations at one point or another. I just love radio. Other things I love....let's see. Blue ink. Black bores me a bit. I love cheddar cheese and barbecue sauce and anything that the two happen to touch. I fall asleep in almost every movie I attempt to watch I have made it through Eat, Pray, Love and Mr. Wright. I like chick flicks. I have an awesome family and love spending time with them. You'll probably hear me talk about my daughters on the air. They're toddler girls who exhaust me, crack me up, and amaze me because I don't think I was ever that smart. I have two miniature schnauzers too. Thanks for stopping by. Now tell me about you.

Office Desks Are Changing to Include Exercise Equipment!

Office desks used to be so simple.  Workers just needed a few folders and some drawers to shove things in, and they were all set for the day.  Now we've got computers and mp3 players and all sorts of new-fangled things sitting atop the desk. Now, some desks even come with treadmills!

As people look for ways to burn calories while stuck at work for eight hours a day, desk manufacturers are trying to cater to those needs and wants.

Hot People Are Hired More Often

Look around the office today.  Do you see lots and lots of beautiful people?  If not, first of all don't say it out loud that you've made this observation.  And second, your office might be out of the norm.

Gosh, is work really a beauty contest?  It turns out, people seen as attractive are hired more often than those seen as ugly.  How do we know for sure?

Cowboys' fans are happy today!  Dallas managed a 36-31 win over the Giants on Sunday Night Football.

The Texans play in the late game of tonight's Monday Night Football double header.  It's Texans and Chargers from San Diego.  Houston will win that one, right?

The experts say if our teams don't win, we eat more junk food the next day.  So if you gain a lot of weight this football season, your team must really be bad!

Expectations Are High as the NFL Season Begins

If you have Peyton Manning on your Fantasy Football team, nice work!  That guy is unreal with 7 touchdown passes against the Ravens last night.  He has set the bar high for the rest of the signal callers around the NFL.

Peyton's little brother, Eli, will try to carve up the Cowboys defense on Sunday Night Football.  Tony Romo will try to quiet the doubters with some TDs and no picks.

Oh, and Carrie Underwood replaces Faith Hill with the Sunday Night Football open each week, debuting this Sunday.  We're sure she'll be smokin'.

So how will the Cowboys do this season?

It’s Fall, and That Means School, Football, and Time for Shots!

Fall is a busy time with the start of school and football games to attend.  And when the weather finally cools off, Texas gets going with fairs and festivals and outdoor fun that was put on hold while the weather was too hot.

There's one more thing to put on the to-do list this fall.  Get your shots!  Flu shots are starting to become available at East Texas pharmacies, and the Texas Department of State Health Services says there's one more shot you'll want to get before it's too late.

Ten Things We’re Likely to Spend Too Much Money On

I have a friend who is planning a wedding right now, and although she's looking forward to the big day, she has expressed doubts about why in the heck she's spending so much money on one event.  She said, "All this money is going out the door and for what?  A big party?"  Look at it this way, sister.  You're spending a boat load of money on a party, but you'll get back a Titanic load of gifts.  It's not all bad!

A wedding is one of the top ten things we spend too much money on, according to an MSN Money article.  Can you guess the rest?  Yes, a funeral is on the list.  Another big life (or in this case death) event that can get out of control in a hurry.
