Ivana: i can say the same about these last two weeks. it was my 24th CMJ--I tried this line on the other attendees, "hey kid, did you know I used to do college radio with your parent?" not surprisingly, the response was usually a look of horror

Lenny: i understand... whattup at radio this week
Ivana: just some band called Hoobastank—#1 Most Added at every possible format with their new smash "Disappear." even naysayers (garett) can't argue that this song isn’t great

Ivana: speaking of blowing out, krox austin parted company with pd melody lee, much to the surprise of everybody
Lenny: ted volk is closing quickly on the Music, that way he can concentrate on the clippers earlier.... sorry about melody, what team does she root for

Ivana: for my sake, i hope the yankees win tonight--you're frightening me
Lenny: the red sox are frightening me... a lot
Ivana: which night next week do you want to see interpol at the wiltern? it's all sold out but i know people

Lenny: hits happen. is mr. brightside top ten yet
Ivana: i want to live in a world where mr. brightside, slow hands and the new franz single are all in the top ten. and we have a new president. and i can sleep at night..
Lenny: that could very well happen, but then it'll probably be pms week and u'll still be cranky
Ivana: i managed to squeeze in an hour of shopping when i was in nyc. dan connelly from emc is the best person to take on a stealth shopping trip
Lenny: did u buy me anything good
Ivana: he assured me i wasn't too flat-chested for the costume national jacket i coveted—although i'm still not sure
