So I have this other blog that I've been cheating on you with (c'mon baby, don't be like that), and that blog is on a site called ChicagoNow which is affiliated with the Chicago Tribune and WGN.
It's the same steez: the wacky adventures of a special-needs-mom-on-a-banana-peel, only with more of a local flava. Actually, it's that blog that should be pissed off at me because I have yet to write any original content for it. Thus far, I've only managed to work up enough energy to copy over posts from here that cover local hijinx, like Audrey's adventures in summer camp, ballet, etc.
ChicagoNow has a radio show that features some of their bloggers every Saturday morning, and this very Saturday, October 30, I will be one of the featured bloggers. For my local peeps, I am slotted to be on at 9:30am. For my non-local peeps, try to see if you can get any reception on AM 720. Not to brag, but WGN is kind of a big deal around here. It's a major kilowatt station that sometimes travels several hundred miles away if the wind is right and there isn't a competing station that interferes with it. Try it. I'll wait here.
I don't know why in the world I'm promoting this ahead of time. I have never done anything like this before, have had two days to prepare during which time I have had Audrey home either puking or wiping snot all over me, and can barely form a sentence on a good day. My correspondence with the folks running the show has been limited to email. No pre-show phone interview, no list of the 7 dirty words that you can't say, no nothing. What in the world would they do if I had a debilitating speech impediment or Tourette's Syndrome? What in the world will they do when I freeze up a la Cindy Brady on that children's quiz show ("Baton Rouge! Baton Rouge! C'mon Cindy, you know this!")?
I'm extremely nervous and slightly freaking out over this. If I really embarrass myself, does anyone know a guy that can hack into their website and destroy the podcast? Wish me luck....
