Friday night and what better time to stay home and listen to my interview on Blogtalk Radio? I’ll be on this evening from 8:30 to 9:30 pm, EST. I consider each and every one of you my closest and most dearest friends and while I have never acknowledged your birthdays, promotions or success in getting out of speeding tickets, it’s because I have a vitamin deficiency and am physically unable.
Now here’s the good part. Since I can barely stand the sound of my own voice, you can make it easier on all of us by calling in and asking me questions about anything, anything at all. I won’t even mind if the questions are rambling and will be used later on in text books as sterling examples of what the term “digression” means. We are a nation that loves discourse, so let’s do our part. Or perhaps, you don’t think the United States is worthy of being known for a country that enjoys discourse. Well, if that’s the case, I want nothing to do with you but still expect you to call in anyway so we can kick around your gripes about our nation for 20 minutes or so before I slam the phone down in disgust and have to pick it up again when the switchboard lights up with thousands of kooks asking me to run for public office under their “Why Do the Voices In Our Heads All Talk at the Same Time?” Party.
I know! It does sound like a lot of fun! We can talk about comedy, writing, what it’s like to be a successful author (assuming a successful author calls in), stuff like that. And if time allows, cooking fish on planks.
The logistical info:
8:30-9:30 PM, tonight, eastern standard time, Friday, August 23rd.
The number to call in is: 949-272-9578
So please do everything within your power to tune in or call in. I’m expecting your support because I have a blog. Don’t let me down! I don’t know where you live but Google Maps does and I know where Google Maps lives. Someplace really expensive and nice and with tall gates and lots of glass and chrome windows and furniture, I’m guessing. Probably a ton of those geeky kids riding around on $6,000 bicycles that let them pedal in a reclining position so the sun can damage their retinas allowing them to justify to their parents why they spend 16 hours a day indoors developing “apps” we could all live without if our computers and phones and tablets didn’t already come loaded from the factory with the app that prevents us from thinking about all the things we actually could live without, like beer with lime flavoring added to it. Anyway, I’m pretty sure I could find the place, so don’t call in or listen at your own peril.
And if I don’t talk to you sooner because it turns out you do have a life, have a great weekend!
