How THIS Happened, Part Two

  1. I’ve been so happy for your success, and you make a good point about nerves.  You looked great and sounded great and humanized Newt—not easy to do!  Looking forward to the style series and the posts about your regular life in 2012!

      Thanks, Kathy! I’m looking forward to getting back to a more normal writing schedule here. I love you guys to death, but I have the added incentive of chronicling everything for my kids down the road- that’s why I could never abandon this blog, even when comments are down to TWO.  ;D

    you are really onto some BIG BIG places. Not that what you are doing isn`t already there. But really you are about to be BIG time. Congratulations!

      I don’t know about that, Megan, but thanks for the vote of confidence! I’m just really excited to be doing all of these things right now, and it’s nice to be in a place where my life was great without them, too. It’s really freed me up to enjoy the journey and not worry about what I should be doing next.  🙂

    I found the interview on a Des Moines website after your first post about this, and watched it all from start to finish.  Being used to the way it’s done in the UK this was doubly interesting – relaxed, friendly, not overly confrontational, which I think is the way to get to know people.  I thought you were professional, controlled and charming (and wow doesn’t that blue suit you).  Can’t say the same for the young man on your left – I know he was sort of in charge, but he made it very obvious that this was the case, in fact he stood determinedly in front of you during his initial explanations before NG came on.  NG acquitted himself well I thought, but again I was very unimpressed by the other interviewer extracting tears out of him by forcing him to talk about his mother.  It was transparent and (for me) bad taste.  But there you go – perhaps everybody else loved it and I’m on my own here.  Personally I think your career on TV is assured, and I’m preparing myself to be sad when you no longer have time to share your wonderful writing with us… Well done anyway!

    So cool!  You did a great job.
