I Think I'll Stick with Blogging

November 19, 2008
So. I recorded my very first podcast last night with these three guys.

The whole thing seemed to turn into a forty-five minute, highly offensive laugh-fest. It was also very confusing. One of the guys had a distinctive upper-Midwest kind of drawl (you know, when they say "bage" instead of "bag?"), but I couldn't tell Vanilla apart from RazZ if four of my fingers depended on it. Like I said--very, very confusing.

Throughout the entire podcast, all three of the men seemed to defer to the good old fashioned 'ladies first' mentality. This did not work well....

1) RazZ would pose a question.
2) A short, awkward silence would follow.
3) Amy would answer the question in three words or less.
4) A long, awkward silence would follow.
--Repeat--

I think they were all waiting for me to get to the joke. Welp, sorry boys, that was the joke.

Ouch.

Since last night, I've tried again and again to run the conversation through my head--you know, to figure out how just much humiliation I should prepare for--but my goodness, it's all a blur. I can only remember the following: calling some guy an "a$$ licker," saying I wanted to make out with a lady who peed her pants on purpose, something about growing boobs at age 13, and so on and so forth.

There was also some talk of camels? And doing some impromptu stretches on the office copier?

Good heavens.

After the podcast was finished, Nitmost and Vanilla both hung up--leaving me in a somewhat awkward conversation with RazZ (Don't you just love these screen names? Very super-heroesque.). He was like, "Well Amy, that was fun. Do you want to do it again sometime?"
I think I blushed a little, like I was being asked out on a second date--you know, instead of a podcast where I'm coerced to talk about 'that time I decided to poop behind a bush.'

I said "Yes."

Apparently, this podcast will be available for free on iTunes--which, by the way, puts me on equal footing with people like Justin Timberlake and Kenny Chesney.

I'll screen it first, and if it's any good, I'll tell you how to find it. But if I'm crazy lame, and it has the potential to make me lose my street credit as a funny girl, then you'll have to forget about the whole darn thing.
And in the mean time, I think I'll stick to writing.

It'll probably be fine, Amy. I'm looking forward to it.

Can't wait!!! I love that you don't apologize for your choice words. Not sure if you just don't care what people think or if your friends all talk like sailors, too?
And here I am stressing out that I might offend someone by publishing the word "girth."

I thought you did great.

maybe I should've recorded it.

Mindy said...

Please tell us how to find it!! I'm sure it's wayyyy funnier than you think it was, and if it's not, it'll be funny to listen to how un-funny you are when you're not writing. ;)

It was defintely a llama. Not a camel. There is a big difference.

Nice job!

You rocked the Podcast party, I'm sure of it.

Viv said...

iTunes, that is big time. I hope you release it to the general public. LOL at you and Razz left on the phone!!

You are kidding me! I had the chance for an early screening and it made me laugh.

I am already looking for "the next one."

Thanks for being a good sport and trying it out - how about we let you pick the next topic? :}
