Once upon a time, I made it to the first interview and game trial stage (where I didn't meet the host) and got rejected because I lacked personality. Trebek, please. I'm overflowing with personality. I eat personality for breakfast topped with Greek yogurt. I have so much excess personality laying around that I stuff my bra with the stuff.
You KNOW I could use the padding.
I'm only telling you guys this because the comments I get about me being funny straight up crack me up. Kari did a post a while back where she said she was funnier in person that on her blog. I'm the opposite, 100%. (Unless you happen to think I'm not funny in either.) In real life I am pretty shy, a little nervous and not super comfortable in big groups of people.
My jokes always go like this:
There was a guy who walked into a bar. No, wait! He walked INSIDE a bar. Yeah, inside a bar. And, um, he was carrying a duck. I forget what's next.....47 nuns?
I can never remember the first part, I have zero timing and then I yell the punchline in the hopes that is all makes sense. Heads up, it doesn't. I think you guys may have figured out courtesy of my one and only video that hubby's got the funny genes. I'm going to try and get him to take on a speaking role in the next one. Fingers crossed.
A couple people have asked me how my running/marathon training is going. Not perfectly, I'll admit. I seem to be in pain if I try running hills, speedwork or consecutive days. FUUUUN. So I've been running 6-7 miles at a time at an easy pace, with a day in between for cycling and strength training.
Do you think your personality is the same online and in real life? Even if you don't have a blog, is there a difference between how you email/leave comments/chat and speak in person?
I don't tell jokes. I can be pretty dang silly but I'm not funny unless you're into that "laughing AT me thing".
Have you ever been on TV or gone to a live taping of a show?
Nope! Now that there will never be an Oprah's Favorite Things episode I'm basically not interested.
