To tell you the truth, I would have publicised my upcoming guest appearance on the podcast Girls Gone WoW, but I was anxious because of a number of things!
- I've got a dreadful cold/flu. I can't stop coughing and my nose is blocked and runny and I was absolutely paranoid I'd be doing disgusting boy sounds like sniffing and snorting during the interview and coughing with an open mic - EMBARRASSING!
- It was a bit early in the morning. That said, 615am is not that early, especially for me, but when I'm medicated or unwell, I tend to sleep a bit more than usual. I was freaked out I was going to miss the show!
- I was hoping hubby would keep the kids away from me for at least half an hour. Sometimes he is a bit funny about things like I am getting up early to do a podcast for World of Warcraft.
- Did I mention this cough? OMG it is a dreadful cough.
So I set my alarm, but all night, I was coughing, waking myself up, freaked out I'd wake hubby or kids up, so after an hour or two of coughing uncontrollably into my pillow, I decided to sleep in the spare room and cough my lungs out there. I set my alarm, and hoped it would get me up.
Next thing I know, hubby is poking me, saying "It's 610am, you have 5 minutes to get to your podcast," and I leapt out of bed, and coughed all the way downstairs! My nose was blocked so I grabbed some nasal decongestant, I went straight to the medicine cabinet to get out some panadol + codeine to try to suppress the cough and log into skype. Phew, I wasn't TOO late. Sil was there and told me not to worry and gave me a quick pep talk and said that I can say what I like, it's an adult show and she doesn't edit. OMG she doesn't edit! What if I say something stupid OMG what if I cough like I've got lung cancer into the mic and deafen everyone!
We started the show, and Rob wasn't there (shame! I hardly ever get to hear his voice), but EJ and Raven were, and I told them my secret admission - I listen to their show because they all have god-sexy accents! All the other podcasts I listen to are American, so it's really nice to hear English/Dutch accents and try to imagine the people behind the voices. I can't help it if I have images of dark haired goth English chicks with attitude with their throaty voices - I think all of them would be highly amused that I imagined that!
So we talked about my blog, Mists, pet battles (OMG I was mouth breathing into the mic too - /facepalm) and I hoped that I muted all my coughs and nose blowing appropriately... I will find out when I hear the show! There was one part, I was trying really hard to suppress a cough whilst talking, and I sounded like I was CONSTIPATED. Classy Navi. Really Classy.
Sil was interested in my Navispam, and I gushed about that for a bit - Navispam was one of the things I really liked doing, and I still think it's a great way for me to remember what happened in my World of Warcraft glory days, meeting all these people on the internet who have one thing in common - passionate about WoW! I told her about how I ended up doing EU Navispams as well, and how twitter was a great way to make sure you got your meetups sorted. We talked about boobies and I got to gush about my crush... Nozdormu... /sighs dreamily. Though maybe I was supposed to talk about GIRL boobies. I should have put a girl one in there - I think it would have to be Alexstrasza and her gorgeous push up corset top giving her that nice cleavage.
The kids were up not long after so I couldn't stay for the whole show, but I wanted to thank the cast of Girls Gone WoW for having me on the show - it was a great honour and a pleasure and I would love to do it again when I'm not sounding like I'm dying from cigarette smoking!
