And looking back from this Nevermore News April edition, I do mean muddling. Granted, after the fireworks of February, anything short of world domination was gonna come in at a distant second, and March delivered, which was probably for the best. Nobody needs me as supreme ruler. I’d make everyone wear those stupid Star Trek onesies on Tuesdays just for giggles. (Next Generation, not Classic. Hellooo, Riker…)
Anywho, I did have some cool stuff happen. That interview with InterNations I mentioned last month? From what I’m told, I sounded like I knew what I was talking about, and if you can believe it, professional.
Yeah, I know, I don’t believe it either. Still, I’ll take it as a win. So was not totally crapping my pants in front of a live audience. Sweating was another matter, but ya can’t have everything.
And don’t spread this around, but despite my damp palms, I actually enjoyed myself, and they’ve asked me back on again when my book launches. Freaking amazing, right?
It’s also hella bizarre.
I mean, public speaking sucks. Back in the day when I was doing sales presentations, if there were more than four people in the room I was a wreck. That one time in I got talked into doing a lip-sync dance routine to En Vogues’ Free Your Mind in front of my entire high school? Don’t remember a thing. As in, completely wiped it from my memory I was so terrified.
Like my failure at world domination, that’s also probably for the best, ’cause my skills in that department… think Elaine in Seinfeld.
Not even kidding, and before you ask, that VHS has been lost in the sands of time.
Thank you, sweet baby Jesus.
Then why the heck was the interview so enjoyable? I mean, public speaking is basically the same concept sans the dry heave-inducing gyrations or the unimpressed middle-aged audience of my past. Ok, my demographic may be the same, but those other guys were super judge-y.
Or maybe I’m just part of the club now. Ouch.
In either event, I’m still putting myself out there, which is freaking hard. So what the heck changed? Whelp, I get into it in my newsletter. If I’ve peaked your interest, hop on over to that menu on the right and sign up! You’ll be the first to know about all the madness, so at the very least you’ll get a heads up before things totally get out of control.
