For the record, I didn't go into Broadcast Journalism for a reason! :)
Onto the story! I went up to the KSL studios in Salt Lake City this morning to demo a sweet-action flip book on their talk show, "Studio 5," for Pebbles in my Pocket. I got there a few minutes early, so I was just waiting in the lobby until I was escorted back to the studio. As I was waiting, I could hear a familiar voice coming from down the hallway...someone with an English accent. Sure enough, it was Alex Boye! He was on the show this morning, too, for their segment "What's He Thinking?" It was fun to see him and knowing someone else at the studio I think calmed some nerves! It was rather funny watching him...he's such a natural in front of the camera, and I'm *so* not!
This is Alex's segment (it gets good at about the 4 minute mark...Alex talks about his style and they all talk about skinny jeans...it's quite funny! Everyone was dying in the studio laughing!):
A few minutes before I was to go on, the Stage Manager hooked me up with the mic. He must've done this a million times before, because he sure was comfortable adjusting everything for the mic, if you know what I mean! Anyways, the time came for me to be on. To say that I was nervous is just a *slight* understatement!
I called my sister, Katie, as soon as it was over, and the first thing she said to me was, " your voice sure sounded weird!" A couple other people said my voice really doesn't sound like this...if it does sound like this to you, I apologize! I hate listening to myself! :)
Now that I've watched it a few times, I just think the whole thing is funny! I feel awkward putting this up, but I think it's rather amusing and it's worth documenting the experience! Laugh it up, laugh it up!
Busy weekend ahead...my "To Do" list is a bazillion miles long for the weekend! We'll see if I get everything done!
