The OhMyGod Series, Episode 12

Here is the middle of the week (plus one day) post of my podcast of the OhMyGod series, from the Drunken Cyclist, a blog right here on WordPress.

I didn’t get the audio book job I auditioned for last week.  But 3 months after he initially told me he wanted more video sales letter narrations, the client says he’s going to send me the scripts.  That’s the freelance life.  I’m thinking about art modeling to fill in the money gaps.

The OhMyGod series, Episode 11

An author contacted me last week about narrating his book.  I went out to ACX to get the script and couldn’t find it because he specified a young male narrator as his preference.  Hmmmm.  I emailed him back and asked if he really wanted a mature female (me) to audition to narrate.  He said yes, so I thought what the heck and I did the audition.  I haven’t heard back yet, sometimes it takes weeks.  What happened to you this week where you wondered if that happens to anyone else?

The OhMyGod Series, Episode 10

I’ve finished extracting my dogs from underneath the bed.  That’s a story for another time.  We’re on to Episode 10 of the OhMyGod series, from the Drunken Cyclist, a blog here here on WordPress, http://thedrunkencyclist.com/.

I’m always looking for Does This Happen to You? moments.  If you have any, please pass them on!

The OhMyGod Series, Episode 9

The book I’m narrating is about Wicca.  I find it interesting but those Welsh and Irish terms are driving me crazy.  They sound nothing like what they look like.  And the goddess of death, Cailleach Bear, sounds like you’re coughing up something when you say it.  Since she’s a crone, that is probably appropriate.

Here is Episode 9 of the Oh My God series from one of my favorite blogs, the Drunken Cyclist, right here on WordPress.

I still have promo codes for a free audio book.  As always, I’m looking for Does This Happen to You moments to bring to life in audio.

The OhMyGod Series, Episode 8

I’m trying to figure out how to get a short audio book narrated and produced this week, so no time for dogtoons or writing.  And its time for the next OhMyGod installment, from The Drunken Cyclist, right here on WordPress.

I still have promo codes to get the audio book I narrated for free.  And I always need stories from you fellow bloggers fitting my Does This Happen to You? theme which I can narrate.  Just drop me a comment.

The OhMyGod Series, Episode 7

Here we go with Episode 7, the bicycling adventure in the Loire Valley continues.   By the Drunken Cyclist, a blog right here on WordPress.

I still have promo codes for the audio book, Take a Load Off, Mona Jamborski.  Its free to download using the code.  Just write in the comments you’d like to give it a go, and I’ll give you the code with instructions.  Its a giggle for your commute!

Sit, Please

I clamber on to the bus, flick my pass in front of the reader and come up against a line of riders standing in the aisle.  Shit, I’m stuck.  I gaze longingly at the back of the bus, where 2 seats are open.   Isn’t it nice riders choose to stand and not use those seats.  But park their body in the aisle so I have to crawl over them to obtain those seats.

I hate standing on the bus.  The bus is the place to read emails or use your calorie counting app.  I cannot do any of these things, while being flung about every time the bus stops and starts.   Other riders are braver than me, holding their phone in one hand while holding the top rail with the other, their phone and body waving in time with each jerk of the bus.

As more riders enter the bus, I steadily creep toward the back of the bus.  I excuse myself as I wind around the standing riders, enduring dirty looks as I brush past them.  Hey, stand if you like but I want one of those seats, dude.  I commandeer a seat in the back, flanked by two other riders, not happy I’m crowding their area or poking them with my bag.  I’m happy, able to work on my phone without worrying about face planting in the bus aisle.

Kris’ bus etiquette: Please sit if there is an empty seat.  If the person sitting next to you smells funny, feel free to stand.   Offer another standing rider your seat.  They may like the way that person smells.  Do not park your dog, your over stuffed shopping bag or your oversized backpack in the middle of the bus aisle.   Your dog does not want to dance with other riders and other riders do not want to tango with you and your baggage to get off the bus.

The OhMyGod Series, Episode 6

How rude of me, I always forget to be specific.  Last week, I had an audition for a cable TV show about zombies and I booked a voice over job.  That’s my excuse for almost not getting any blog post out last week.  I didn’t get a call back for the zombie show but I did get paid for the voice over job.   And I have a part time corporate job.  Its nice to have a little financial stability but still get my creative on too.  Its just gets a little overwhelming sometimes, like last week.

Its time for the next episode of OhMyGod!  from the Drunken Cyclist blog on right here on WordPress.

I still have promo codes for the audio book, Take a Load Off, Mona Jamborski.  Its free to download using the code.  Just write in the comments you’d like to give it a go, and I’ll give you the code with instructions.  Its a giggle for your commute!
