Tomorrow...TV Made Me Do It!
9/30/2007 9:54:08 PM
Getting excited, but nervous, too ...
What if I mess up? What if I say the wrong thing? What if I look totally stupid?
Breathe, Karla. It's going to be okay.
Just relax, have fun with it.
Besides: thank God for retakes! LOL
YOU. CAN. DO. THIS! :)
Okay: feel better now.
Tomorrow, October 2, 2007, John (the producer of 'TV Made Me Do It', Proper Television, Toronto, Ontario, Canada) and his crew will come to our place and get to know us, film us all day.
Isn't that nice? You get to talk about yourself! Why you are afraid of storms; how they make you act and feel; how poetry came into your StormFear; how it's helped; how watching TV weather is a good thing or bad thing.
Wednesday is the BIG DAY: they will come and pick Karen and I up around 1:00 PM, drive us to the studio, where we will be met by NBC 5 and John, as well as David Finfrock, chief meteorologist.
Let me correct one thing: thought the studio was in Dallas, I was wrong, it's 12 miles up the road, in Fort Worth! My bad. LOL
We'll take a tour of the KXAS weather station and talk about two storms that had a major impact on Fort Worth (May 5, 1995 'Mayfest Hailstorm,' the costliest hailstorm on record and March 28, 2000 'Downtown Tornado') and on David Finfrock's meteorological career.
I was watching David Finfrock live on March 28, 2000: he was doing the weather when the tornado struck, got it on video, baby! Even though four (? Can't remember) people died, he saved many more lives by staying on air.
We'll discuss my StormFear and poetry. Get to read a couple and present another I wrote for David, 'Big Weather.' :) Hope he likes it.
From 4-5 PM, Karen and I get to sit on the sidelines and see how a TV station gears up for the live local news at 5:00 PM and get a cafeteria break in there somewhere. (I'll probably be too nervouse to eat.)
At 5:00 until 5:30, we get to watch the live broadcast of the news, weather and sports.
Take a break for the National News. Maybe another bite to eat? Smoke break? *Might need it by then*
At 6:00 PM, we watch another live broadcast.
At 6:30 PM, I get to do my own weather forecast with the greenscreen *remember! Don't. Wear. Green! LOL*!
As you know, I wanted to be a meteorologist, but my allergy to math and StormFear precluded that. So, I'll get to live a dream, as it were.
"We're all gonna diiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeeee." LOL
7:30 PM, IT'S A WRAP! :) Transportation home.
KEEP KAREN AND I IN YOUR PRAYERS!
I will be thanking God for my Gift and the place it all started, Author's Den. :) Thanks to each and every one who has ever stopped in my little corner of the Den.
