Phoning

Why does telephoning make me nervous? Always has. I've been putting off a phone call that I was actually looking forward to having -- it's just that the idea of it made me nauseous, so I delayed, wrote more questions and thought, "maybe tomorrow."

But I did it! At last I did. I'm sure he didn't notice how strangled my voice sounded. He was quite charming and pleasant.The interview itself won't happen until February March because they both have to be there. I did manage to run both Skype and GarageBand, so I could test the recording tech -- worked fine.

Yes, I am being a bit mysterious, but I'll tell you about it afterward. It may be a bit of a hint to say, thank you again, Pádraig! I owe you big time.

You use GarageBand? I have some questions for you...

I'll give you a call. Are you home this weekend?

Hey Cranky,

Yeah, should be home most of the weekend apart from tonight. Gimme a call!

At least one writer of my acquaintance never has been able to be fully comfortable on the telephone...the disembodied voices are quite as scary as human voices down a cardboard tube to cats, but disturbing enough.

In a way, it's even weirder because I am sitting here talking at my computer because I'm using it to make the call. There's nothing to hold, so I have no idea what to do with my hands (other than flail them around as I usually do while I'm talking which seems funny). It's just odd.
