Another Tuesday, another TV appearance
This time it was a six minute interview on TV1's Good Morning (screened at about 9.50am). I spoke with Sarah Bradley about my book, winning Best First Book in the Commonwealth, my day job with the Ministry of Education... Maybe some other things. It was my first time on live TV, so I had a lot on my mind...
It doesn't look like they've posted my segment online via TVNZ's On Demand service yet, but they are sending me a DVD so if you're patient (and if, upon review, I deem it "not totally cringeworthy") it may pop up on YouTube one of these days.
Good & Plenty
For those of you counting on your fingers at home, after my 2 minute slot on The Good Word last week, that's 8 of my 15 minutes of fame swallowed up.
The fact both shows have "Good" in their name is purely incidental.
But, if it is not, I could use my remaining 7 minutes of fame by appearing on Haydn's Good Sorts (though I'm probably 40 years too young and don't knit beanies for the kids in Eritrea), or The Good Wife (a show I've never watched, but after a quick YouTube I've decided a cameo as another love interest for poor confused Kalinda would be acceptable) or something called Good Luck Charlie (a Disney Channel sitcom - yikes!).

And finally, a moment of appreciation for Mark Lanegan
(I actually wanted a clip of Lanegan singing 'Walkin' on the sidewalks', and there are some on YouTube, but nothing compared to the version I remember from 2003 in Auckland...)
