I’ll be on radio – well, sort of!

If you missed the show, you can listen the PodCast at MumsTheWurd.

I’m so excited and a bit nervous too. I’ll be interviewed by Laura and Amy from MumsTheWurd tonight on Blog Talk Radio. It’ll be live at 10 o’clock on central time, but you can catch the PodCast later on their website. (Unless I really mess up – then I’ll just remove this blog post and you can just forget about it.)

I just wish everyone can understand what I’m saying – remember, I’m the weird foreigner, with my Finnish accent. I was also just thinking that what if they happen to ask who is my favorite designer, I can’t say DeAnna Cochran. You know why? DeAnna is a jewelry designer, and I can not pronounce the word jewelry.

I’m serious.

I just called my husband to work and did some pronunciation excercises (I’m sure the guys at work got a kick him repeating word jewelry twenty times). I even found the pronunciation online, but I just can not get it right. Me and husband agreed, it’s better not to say it at all, than people not understanding what I’m saying. Really, people would laugh. Sorry DeAnna, I will never say aloud you are my favorite jewelry designer. I talk a lot about her, but I always sort of avoid saying the J word… And on a live show, it might be a bit difficult.

But as long as they don’t make me say difficult words – I’m fine and excited about the possibility!

    Mahtava juttu. Ilmaista mainontaa. ;) Toivottavasti meni hyvin. Pitiko sun sanoa tuo “j” word? Eiko olekin ihmeellista etta vuosikausien enkun puhumisen jalkeen se ei siltikaan aina suju valilla.

    You know what? I never thought about you having trouble with English words. I don’t know why.

    I missed the show, but I’m sure you did wonderfully. And I’m sure everyone understood you.

    And you can always just says bracelets and necklaces and rings. :-)
