GKN 5/22/12 – The Last Thing a Voice Talent Needs…Dental Work!
Good afternoon and Happy Belated Victoria Day! Long live the Queen…
So, you’re probably wondering why the GKN Weekly Update is a day late. To make a short story long, I was supposed to pick up my buddy Trish Basanyi from the airport on Sunday night, an 11:13 PM flight. It landed at 2:10 AM. Yuck! Needless to say, I slept in. The good news is that I woke to a couple of voiceovers in my Inbox. Yay! Then I had errands to run, a client to visit, and a personal commitment so I got home after midnight. Yuck again! So I decided to sleep in again and woke up to a phone call from my dentist’s office wondering where I was. YUCK!!! I scrambled and got there only ten minutes late. Now I’m sitting here with a temporary crown, a puffy mush, and a pile of commercial tags & retakes waiting to be recorded. Yuck, indeed.
The good news is now I have time to write my blog while waiting for the Novocaine to wear off. Yay, optimism!
TIP OF THE WEEK: I could have SWORN my dentist appointment was on Wednesday. I even wrote it in my planner! You should have a notification system of some kind in place for exactly this type of situation. Outlook is great with sending you notifications, and I bet your phone has an app for that, too.
QUOTE OF THE WEEK: The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that English is about as pure as a crib house whore. We don’t just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary. James D. Nicoll
STUFF!: I finally got see The Avengers last week and it was pretty darn good! Love the shawarma scene after the end credits!
