Are We Having Fun Yet?

get-real-1071fm  

Well I certainly am. 

As luck would have it, I was crowned the ‘Get Real Girl of the Week‘ on my new favorite radio station 107.1 FM in Minneapolis (alright so I don’t live there but we cares) My two new BFFs Liv and Colleen interviewed me for this week’s show that had the theme ‘Are We Having Fun Yet?’ (one of my favorite quotes). They found me from my 50-something Mom Blog post about a recent birthday celebration for a friend. Pretty cool, right?

You can see the blog post here. And this is the link to the get real girl of the week interview podcast. It’s a long clip but if  screw around with the slider I am about 3/4 of the way in. I need to figure out how to grab that piece of the audio out and embed it here. Till then, humor me with the effort.

Oh, and yes, I know that I used amazing 2 times in one sentence (I hate that) and of course I am aware that a NY Jewish girl speaks about twice the amount of words per minute than those who live in the Midwest.

All in all it was a blast and I can add it to my list of fun things I did this weekend.

Sarah Palin Pranked

This could be the best thing that happened to the Obama campaign yet.The Masked Avengers of CKOI, Audette and Sebastien Trudel, staged this fake call from ‘Nicolas Sarkozy’ to Palin and she was completely clueless even as they ratcheted up the absurdities. “I wanted to see how (Palin) was on an intellectual level,” Audette said. 

Not so much!

Ben Smith of Politico was one of the first to pick this up from The Canadian Press. 

A candid peak into how she carries herself with a foreign president will surely make the hairs on the back of  your neck stand on end. 

A few highlights:

When she gets on the phone and mistakes the assistant for Sarkozy: “It’s not him yet Bexi, I always do that.”

When discussing hunting, which Audette refers to as his ‘love for killing animals’ Palin replies “We can have a lot of fun together while we’re getting work done. We could kill two birds with one stone.” At which point Audette makes a joke about not bringing Cheney and Palin offers up the fact that she is s good shot.

He mentions his special adviser to the U.S. Johnny Hallyday who is actually a french singer and actor, singer Stef Carse as Canada’s prime minister and Quebec comedian and radio host Richard Z. Sirois as the provincial premier. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t know any of these guys, or the correct names, but I AM NOT FRIGGIN RUNNING FOR VICE PRESIDENT. After all, can’t she see Canada from Alaska?

Personally, I was thrilled that she did not offer up a Sarah Palin condom.
