Navimie is on Girls Gone WoW!


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!
  1. 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!
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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!

So check out the podcast - Girls Gone WoW - I was on episode number 72 which will be available for listening on Wednesday I think.I'm excited because now I've joined Akabeko, Moogyver and Bravetank a whole host of other people that have been on the show!

  1. And we loved having you on! It was a shame we couldn't enjoy your presence longer, but fully understandable with a family and all. I do hope you start feeling better soon. We've all been quite sick on the podcast (except for of course, Rob) and I think you're not far of with the dark hair theory. lol and if I would have been a bit faster I would have had the chance to get the horde perspective of the Jade Forest. Need to remind myself to talk faster ;) xoxox Sil

    1. I wish I was well! I would have talked a lot more because talking was making me cough, but I'll just invite myself back again if you'll have me /grin. Thank you for the well wishes, I hope you are all feeling better too! EJ seemed rather tired...

  2. How exciting! I cannot imagine having enough time anytime to do a podcast anymore. My kids are up from 5 am to about 10 it seems. Darned teenagers! Looking forward to listening to you when I get to work in the morning on Stitcher :)

  4. Wait, what, Americans don't have sexy accents?! Lol!! Okay so we all can't sound like Aisha Taylor or Tyler or whatever...so what if we sound like squeaky drawling dorks? Hey all I can say us I laugh like a Draenei and thus girl is so amazed and awed by all you do! That is awesome Navi!!!

    1. Using all the vowels and spelling with "re" instead of "er" is a prerequisite for having a sexy accent! Colours! Centre!

      That said Draenei have an interesting laugh, it reminds me of a demon about to break out of human form. ;-)

    2. Oh my gawd.....that is exactly what is going on...somewhere in the new world small children hear a sulfurous laugh and are feeling oddly terrified....!

    3. I think it's because Australians and Americans are so commonplace accents to me that I don't find them particularly sexy :P
      Hey I like that Draenei laugh!

    4. I'd like to point out Canadians spell like a Brit, but speak closer to American.

      Some Americans have lived in England long enough for it to infect their spelling... Well, that's my excuse!

  8. I was super happy to see your name on the download this week :) You were great. I noticed that you spoke kind of nasaly, but I thought that was just how people spoke in your part of Australia.. haha! Did you even cough once on air? I didn't notice if you did.

    I just checked your blog for updates on pet battles... dang there is so so so so much to it. Pandaland is a bit overwhelming
