Hitting the Floor Running...

I don't know why it is we are in such a hurry to get up when we fall down. You might think we would lie there and rest for a while. ~Max Eastman

It's early and I'm already at a dead run. Today should be crazy!

Judy and I are guests on author Rowena Cherry's "Crazy Tuesday" radio show (today at 10 - 12 EST). While I spend two hours on the phone (and get cauliflower ear) I have to figure out how to keep DD and Dd quiet and occupied. Now, DD would be perfectly content to watch a movie, but Dd? Not so much.

I'm told that the radio microphone's pick up EVERY little noise. Rowena mentioned that folks have tried eating, drinking and even going potty while on the show and it all comes through. OY.

So, yeah, I'm a little nervous. Apprehensive. BUT... Rowena is one of the loveliest, most gracious and funny authors we've met. So, regardless of what I do (or Judy... though I suspect most faux pas will be on my end, lol), I'm sure Rowena will make the best of it.

If you want to listen or participate you can go here: Rowena Cherry's Crazy Tuesday Radio Show and click on "listen live" in the left sidebar.

If you want, you can text questions by using this short code 88147. I know there is a way to phone in, but I can't find it in the instructions. Found them: To call in and talk to us, dial 866-97P-IVTR.

In any case -- wish me luck! I checked, and there is no five second delay (something I've always thought my mouth needed IRL).

And then, when that's all done I still have everything else on my To-Do list to tackle.

Dear heavens, I'm tired already...


You Are Like a Dog

You are a natural best friend. You are very loyal and faithful.

In your eyes, your friends can do no wrong. You will stick with them no matter what.

You have a protective streak, and you can be downright nasty if you're being threatened.

More than anything else, you are playful and laid back. You truly live in the moment.

Um... 50/50 really... But, couldn't they have found a cuter dog?

Good luck! I'm in an all day training seminar, otherwise I'd listen in.

Good luck!!!

Good luck, although I missed it. How did you do? Will we be able to listen to it later?

You Are Like a Horse

You are strong, steady, and devoted. You are a good partner.

You are gentle and sensitive. You can be easily frightened.

You are usually quite stable, but you do have a wild streak that comes out from time to time.

You are cooperative and not a solitary creature. You like to be around others.

mostly true

Hope the radio show went fabulously!

Brandy said...

I hope everything went well! I am a horse, too. Not sure I liked being compared to a horse, but okay.

I hope your day goes wonderfully!

Gah! I got to this tonight... darn! OTOH, I had a commitment during those hours. Still... I hope it went well!

Jeanine said...

Listening now..It's Recorded. Very interesting interview! You both did a great job!

I seem to be a ferret. There's a surprise! A mustelid.

You were both amazing, and I hope the scavenger hunt and other anniversary celebrations this month are a great success.
