There are times that I am glad that I'm married to My Lovely Wife. Pretty much all the time actually. Let me start again.
I think we ended up recording a little over half an hour, which could have been better except the cold that I thought I beat two weeks ago moved back into my throat. Sara says I sounded fine, but if I say anything that was really absurd or embarrassing, it's because of the medication. Hall's and Fisherman's Friends are potent.
There are times when I am so thankful that My Lovely Wife said "Yes" at just the right moment that it makes me all weepy. Take last Friday for example.
I was at work when I got a call from My Lovely Wife letting me know that Sara Tate, a producer from CBC's Definitely Not the Opera, was trying to get in touch with me. I wrote down the number and did a little dance (but only in my head, because I was at work and an office is no place for dancing... unless you're doing The Safety Dance! - only people that work at my company will truly get that joke, and they will all think it's as lame as you do). I took a break and called her up.
Long story short, this was how I spent part of my day today:
|This picture fails to capture the majesty and wonder of the recording booth I was in. |
Just kidding! It was very sparse and everything was painted that colour. But there was some awe.
Also, picture is terrible because photographer is not photographer.
Anyway, I want to say thanks to Sara for being awesome and fun to talk with and convincing me that I was doing fine (even though it took me a couple of minutes to realize that there was a button I needed to push to make my mic work). I will update here and on my facebook if/when I have more info, but I assume that it'll be on at the regular time on Saturday at 1:30.
I also bumped into Karin Reid-LeBlanc who asked why I hadn't entered the open mic contest. I said that I am going to, but I just hadn't written anything yet. She reminded me that the contest closes tomorrow. So just before writing this, I submitted my entry for that too. I'll keep you posted on that too.
And for those of you wondering why I started this post talking about how much I love My Lovely Wife, when all she did was give me a message... come on. Like I need an excuse to say how great she is?
