Reporters gone

The reporters have left again. Yesterday they were there for over three hours and today it was over four hours. Yesterday one of them interviewed me while the other took still pics. Then I guess they decided they wanted to do a video interview with me too, so they came back today and did that.

Video is kind of slow. We had to rearrange my office a bit, and lock the cats in the bedroom — they kept wanting to come inside the office, and when we shut the office door they meowed pitifully and kept shoving their paws under the door. I’m pretty sure I need to get the guy next door a Meijer gift card or something because I had to ask him to stop mowing his lawn — the sound was bleeding into the audio — and he got pretty grumpy, as well as he might have.

They asked me a bunch of questions on video and then actually had me work on updates for the site and videoed me doing that and pretending they weren’t there.

After all that was done they said they wanted an “establishment shot” of the street outside (not actually showing the house) and wanted pics of me outside also. They asked if I was too tired and I said no. I thought: how long can it take? Well, it took much longer than I thought. First we had to find a nice spot and then they took a lot of pictures of me posing this way and that and looking in this direction and that direction and so on, then while walking back to the house we found ANOTHER nice spot and they took pictures of me there too.

These were very professional guys as far as I can tell. Not that I’ve ever been through this before. But they seem super cool. I really am looking forward to their results.
