My plan to take over the world one interview at a time, is slowly coming to fruition – I am this week’s Geek Speak over at the Straight. Stephen interviewed me last Friday, and the article hit the e-waves today:
We did the interview over the phone, and my answers are pretty much word for word. It is embarrassing to see how I often I say “you know?”, which is apparently my version of “like” or “ummm”. At least, it should be – in my head, I’m just being polite and asking if the reader/listener is, in fact, knowing of what I am speaking. I can’t help it. I’m a trainer; I have an ingrained need to make sure people understand the point I am trying to get across.
Or it could just be that I am a very bad speaker in general.
Still, hooray! I like being interviewed! So far this year I’ve been in the Straight, on Global TV, and on CBC for various things (being a geek, being at the opening ceremony rehearsal, and being online respectively). I am very slowly becoming famous in my own head! Soon I will be signing autographs and going clubbing in short skirts and no panties. Is it too soon to get an agent? Should I stop doing laundry so I can eBay my underpants? So many decisions to make!
I’m off to my next speaking engagement (aka doing my job – it’s time for Friday training) – when I return, we will talk about boobs and Monday and how I hope you will all come out to play.
