Type-A Conference Interview. (Also, I’m disgusting)

Written by on June 20, 2012 in Charlotte, NC - 13 Comments

There’s nothing like the threat of a news camera and a reporter coming to my house to get me into frantic cleaning frenzy.

When I got the call that they wanted to come by yesterday afternoon, I was shopping for the UbiSoft Just Sweat Dance Party at Type-A Con happening on Friday. When I told my friend, Sharon, who also happened to be the reporter on the story (We’ve been friends since the 6th grade. Squee!) that I hadn’t had a shower in three days, my house was filthy, and the Wee Frat Boys are on the ragamuffin side of haircuts, she of the beautiful hair, skin and outfits told me it would be no problem to film all of that. Three hours later, she was at my house, and all of the clutter was hiding in my kitchen cabinets.

Blogging is glamourous, no?

I was totally writing the draft of this post while they were filming me. I’m all about method blogger interview acting. Also, did you see that giant piece of lint on my computer screen when Lee did the tight shot on the screen? Yeah, I had cleaned my computer off because it had thousands of little smudgy Frat Boy fingerprints all over it, and I knew they would be filming me on the computer, and it was still dirty. HD is so on my Bad List.

You film me in my house about going to a blog conference, your picture will be on my blog.

In case you still haven’t packed for Type-A Con, here’s my handy Blog Conference Packing list. If you want to find me at Type-A Con, I’ll most likely be with one my ridiculous, hilarious, hardworking, lovely roommate pals of mine. Allison, Heather, Susan and I all live within two streets of each other, but this weekend we are going to shacking up in a hotel in uptown Charlotte, Type-A style.

    Yay! Look at you, on TV! You’re like, all famous and stuff, now. :)

    I did snicker at the lint on the screen close up, thanks for making that stand out. I laugh only because I understand; I’m typing this comment through a streaked baby-fingerprinted screen myself. It’s like I can keep a little piece of my kids with me while they’re sleeping. *snort*.

    Congratulations on the video. Very cool.

      Thanks, Corinne. Typical, right? At least I took a shower. Could have been much worse.

    Woot! That was awesome! It’s so good to see blogging get some recognition in this area. For so long it was in many other areas (Nashville, Dallas, NY, Boston, etc) but it’s good to see it growing. Really wish I could go to TypeA this weekend but I just got back from NY and my husband is working all weekend. Boo! Hope y’all have a blast!

      I wish you were going, Amy. I’ll gladly share my notes with you if you like, but I’m betting you already know most of it since you have been blogging for so long. :)

        Would LOVE that. I’ve been doing it a long time but for many years there was no business to it…you just wrote. I’m still learning with everyone else as it evolves. We should debrief next week at Cupcrazed!

    You did a great job! And girl, if that is a messy house, then I am NEVER inviting you over! ;)

      It was a hot mess, but I did a whole lot of last minute shoving of clutter into cabinets. Today it is right back to where it was before they came.
