The topic was Geek Chic or Geek Love, which is something I suppose I’ve come to know a fair bit about. I wrote this story on it a couple of years ago at any rate (which is how the Cosmo TV people found me, FYI).
Anyway. I did it. And now the episode is set to air.
I won’t go on too much about this. If you want to see me in all my sweating, nervous glory, watch Oh So Cosmo tomorrow night (April 2nd) at 9 pm. Don’t let this opportunity to make fun of me pass you by!
People have been asking me a lot about what it was “like” to do the interview, and I guess the answer is that it’s hard to explain. It was strange to be in front of the camera. I guess that kind of thing is always a little strange when you’re used to being behind the scenes. I mean, as a writer, you always have some distance, something to hide behind. Talking on camera is a whole different story. Still, I enjoyed it. I’d certainly do it again. And I think I’d do a better job, frankly, now that my awkward first time is behind me. (Isn’t that always the way? Sigh.)
What is funniest about this whole thing is the idea that people actually think of me as knowledgeable. I mean, I’ve always thought of myself that way, and I know you Interwebbers are down with what I’m selling, but these people from the network … they’re REAL people. Like, people who don’t sit around in their underwear surfing the web all day.
That counts for something, right?
So tune in, okay? April 2nd and 9pm, Oh So Cosmo on Cosmo TV. This is great fodder for the mock machine, people. Don’t let it slip through your fingers.
P.P.S. This is not an April Fool’s Day gag, by the way. In case you were wondering. On occasion, people actually DO take me seriously. Despite the fact that I blog.
