The Lauren Boyer Rap: ‘B is for Boyer, B is for Boss’

I found this gem on the Internet today.

We all Google ourselves … some of us more than others.

I have no idea who this person is, but I feel like we’d be fast friends. Many people share my same name, as my pal Donald has told me.

I’ll put this out there: I’m jealous of her swagger.

Here are my three favorite lines from the lyrical masterpiece I can only assume rocked the pants off Trevecca Nazarene University:

“Man Lauren Boyer, yous a crazy chick.”

“B is for Boyer, B is for Boss.”

“I never said I was a role model.”

A year in review: Thirteen things I learned in 2013

1. Don’t be afraid to see your source naked. It might happen from time to time.

2. Pastors like to eat at McDonald’s. Since writing this post, I’ve run into a couple other clergymen while working as a mojo beneath the golden arches. Trend story?

This is Pastor Chet Joines of Round Hill Presbyterian Church in Crossroads, Pa. I met him at McDonald's in Manchester while on a mojo adventure.

Have you met the ‘murse?’ Read my latest piece.


In today’s Sunday business section, I have a byline about murses.

Why?

I don’t really know. Does a story about murses have to happen for a reason?

If you haven’t figured this out by now, allow me to explain it: Continue reading

YOU VOTE: What West Manchester Mall Tout video should Sean star in?

Sean Adkins is the star of any show. Just watch these Touts.

Sean (It’s pronounced See-Ann) Adkins is the star of any show. Just read this post. Such a ham.

I’ve been covering the West Manchester Mall for about a year now, since it was sold.

Veteran reporter Sean Adkins has been covering it for much longer.

So, before someone executes plans that would turn the mall into a legitimate place, we want to have a little fun. Continue reading

Throwback Thursday: Before the Harley coverage, it was ‘biker babe’ for Halloween

Apparently, my mom thought it would be a good idea one year to dress my sister and I up as “biker babes.”

And this what she thought “biker babes” looked like. Continue reading

Sean and I suck at children’s Halloween games

Sean and I agreed to be partners (OK, I basically wrote his name on the sign up sheet.) for the games at the work Halloween party today.

One of the games involved finding a piece of gum in a container of whip cream without the use of hands. Then, you had to blow a bubble.

We lost. Here’s what happened: Continue reading

Business Reporter Sean Adkins ponders how the world has changed.

Today, someone was making a video for our Teen Takeover staff. Folks around here were asked to share their tips for teen journos.

I was asked to explain what social media was like when I was a kid. Basically it barely existed, I said. (Aside from this gem.)

I shared the question with fellow business reporter Sean Adkins. He’s 38.

Crap was really in the stone age back then. Continue reading

10 reasons why it’s pretty depressing that the “The Office” strip club debate is over

Last night, Chanceford Township zoning hearing board members denied “The Office” strip club from opening in the township.

It’s a saga that began in March — one that had a largely Christian community up in arms about the possibility of nakeds within their hallowed boundaries.

The decision is a relief for some.

For me, it’s bittersweet. I loved traveling to The Brogue for the last four hearings for many reasons , some of which have nothing to do with always-hilarious references to G-strings and pasties.

So, in no particular order, here are the Top 10 things I’ll miss about this issue being kaput for now: Continue reading
