I set my alarm for 6:30am on Sunday and sat bleary-eyed in my pyjamas, as Stompalina cheerily wished me good morning. I asked whose crazy idea this was, anyway. She laughed. I grumbled.
But I had a blast being on the show with them. It was a lot of fun, and I think I did okay, considering the fact that it was stupidly early on a Sunday. I only had a couple of mishaps.. one where I zoned out for a sec and misunderstood what the guys meant when they were talking about not being able to get into instances.. heh. Ohhhhh you mean actually getting INTO instances. Right, right. I thought that was a PTR thing, I never even knew that could happen on live servers.. I'm so clueless. Playing on a small, backwater Oceanic server means we never have maxed instances, so I have just never come across that problem.
Still, I was a little embarrassed that my eyes had glazed over and I missed a few key words like "error message" and whatnot. Those couple seconds of silence from Stomp that said to me "you have no idea what I just asked, do you?"
Had a great laugh about it later, though. Not sure if it got edited out - haven't had a chance to listen yet. :P
Other than that, I think at one stage I was waffling about tradeskills and forgot my point (luckily one of the guys cut me off with his opinion.. saved!!).. I knew what I was talking about when I started, I swear.
The other slightly embarrassing moment was when Stomp paused mid-sentence and asked, "Do you have birds?" I have nine pet budgerigars who tend to be extremely noisy - often to the point where I can't hear people on vent. My grand plan to keep them quiet for the podcast was to leave their blankets on and sit in the dark. It almost worked.
I had a great time on the show, and the time absolutely flew past. I was so disappointed when it was over, I wanted to stay and chat more! Thank you to everyone who stopped by the chatroom, especially old friends... and thank you to Stomp and Haf for having me (and Jeppy for being the chat moderator). I had heaps of fun - would love to do it again sometime :)
