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.

    Be glad you don’t have my incessant mowing neighbor. He’s downright obsessive. Glad it all went well, shame the kitties didn’t make a cameo…can’t wait to see it.

      My neighbor is a total sweetie. I did go and buy him a $10 Meijer gift card and took it over today with apologies and he said it was no biggie, that I’d done him a favor really cause it was too hot to mow that day, and when he saw the people with the camera equipment doing their “establishment shot” of the street he put two and two together (he’s aware of my site and how it’s important and stuff) and realized what was going on. So everything’s cool. I insisted he take the gift card anyway.

    HAHAHA! At least your neighbor was nice about it, though I’m sure the gc was appreciated. He could have been a PIA. But cool. Gave him an excuse to blow off those weeds…so proud of you! Look at far this site has gone! Good for you. I’d send you champagne but…..that illegal stuff and all…..
