Interview: Talking writing, Mexican lasagna and poo on Write at Five

Friday, August 24, 2012

Hello, out there in radio land. Internet radio land? Podcast land?

Well, whatever. A while ago, I did an interview on an Internet radio station, Rhino On Air.

 The lovely Write at Five hosts R. MonaLeza and Daphne invited me on to talk about writing and journalism and novels, but I will admit, we spent a lot of time talking about my bush league Mexican lasagna, and how my refrigerator makes it look like a 4-year-old child runs the household. You recall.

Then we got back to talking about stories, made some bathroom jokes and had a ton of fun. The podcast is online now, so take a listen!


Be sure to check out Mona's blog, where she posts quick little flashes of inspiration from writers and artists from all walks. She did one with me. They're great to shake you out of a creative funk if you're just like, "UGH, WHY AM I SO HORRIBLE, I NEED TO BE LESS HORRIBLE." So if you're like me, most days.

Enjoy. I need to buy groceries.

OBITCHUARY, Chapter 12

Pro tip:

If your friend ever asks you to dog-sit at her mom's isolated luxury house on the water in the Florida Keys, you just immediately agree, no questions asked. At least that's what I did. I'm grabbing two friends and heading south Wednesday in a little airplane with chickens in the back then spending the next few days in a hive of hydrating face masks, US Weekly, pina coladas and comatose sleep. I'm just going to be like:

See? She even has a dog.

On my way out the door to this strenuous dog-sitting job, I leave you with Obitchuary, Chapter 12. And guess what? In this chapter, you get to hear more Kenny Loggins! Penny continues her drunken pursuit of Mark, who has graciously offered to drive her home from Haddigan's Pub after her precarious run-in with a liter of vodka. Will the night end in romance or disaster, the likes of which have never been seen? Find out!

Watch all the chapters here, and subscribe to the YouTube channel here.

See you when I get back from paradise! Hopefully in the next video, my skin will be a slightly darker shade than the "rice pudding with a dollop of Cool Whip" look I'm sporting here.
