Last night The Slackmistress and I got on camera for the seventh week in a row for The BetheMarriage Live (On Ice) video chat. We had stories to tell about earthquakes, family, parties and cupcakes and there was a chartroom full of awesome people waiting to play along with us.
Things got off to a rocky start, first when we went live at 8 pm Pacific Time I was alone. My wife was off raiding our secret stash of delicious cupcakes (made by Hilary) but she made it to our makeshift set a minute later and we got rolling. The audience participation was as always brilliant* and we managed to make it through nearly two hours of stories.
(A few viewers I noticed saying awesome things in the chat room: vintage caveman, gregbarnett, illuminato, Art who was celebrating a birthday, Neil from Citizen of the Month, Clay, Aliastaken, Cindy and her sister, sevenlies, the letterkae, DocWho who may have registered a domain about my wenis, Daily Piglet, Connie, MyraB, the other Nina, Monkeytrousers and others who I am probably leaving off out of forgetfulness)
If things were a little off last night there’s a good reason, earlier that day we had thrown a surprise bridal shower for our friends The Daily Randi and Mike. The combination of tiredness, excessive consumption of champagne and the sugar coma induced by those delicious, delicious cupcakes made us both want to pass out before we even turned the camera on. That said, the show still had its moments, including:
1- The pimping and on camera eating of cupcakes made by Hilary.
2- My party planning duties (finish beer in fridge to make room for food).
3- An explanation of why people call me Sam.
There are clips of the show archived here, we’ll be back for more next week. (There’s about a 30 second lag before the video kicks in on the first part.)
P.S. – Did we mention that the cupcakes were awesome and that Nanette was also at our house yesterday?
