If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you’ve probably seen my laments about the phone interview I did for an Irish radio station called Phantom 105.2. By email we established the time he would call me:
how about we record an interview next Tuesday 8th October at 6.30am Irish time – that’s 11.30pm for you
So I was expecting his call on Tuesday at 11:30 PM.
He meant Tuesday Irish time. Which means Monday our time. Which means I had already gone to bed. I woke and took the call.
When I hung up 10 minutes later, it occurred to me that I’d been on Ambien the whole time.
Joe, just a quick thanks, and a slighter longer apology – somehow I got it in my head it would Tuesday for ME when you called, and wasn’t expecting your call, so I was zonked out. That wouldn’t be so bad, but I had also taken Ambien a few hours before… in short, I have a very foggy memory of our call, and I hope there was something salvageably entertaining from it.
I’m still shaking my head at myself. Anyway, it was a pleasure speaking with you (if I recall correctly), and if you need anything else from me, say the word.
No problem at all Randy, thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s quite a funny story really! I must admit I was a little bit curious about the tone of your voice, but I just assumed it was the time difference! Anyway, the interview was absolutely fine, trust me, and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve attached the audio for you.
Well, there you go.
Oh. You probably want to HEAR it. Fine, here I am, slightly woozy, with the worst parts edited out. I haven’t listened yet. I’m still too scared.
