IN OTHER NEWS: Get Memzified Premiered Last Night!

Click HERE to listen. It was soooooooooo much fun. Have you wanted to know what Memzy has been thinking about American Idol? Ever wondered why Memz won't give up on Danny Gokey? Ever wanna know who Memz finds "hawt" and who she finds "nawt?" It's all there. You won't be sorry.

I've also gotten a teeny bit more technologically savvy in this whole process. If you're the type of person to subscribe to RSS Feeds here is the one for iLandee....

I've also added an RSS Feed link over there on my sidebar which will hopefully update whenever I add a pod I have casted. I'm still trying to figure out iTunes. It's taking forever for them to post the podcasts I submit but hopefully that will get faster later. For now I'm guessing that link is your best bet.

Again, Memzy + Podcast = TLA

T. L. A.

It was the most fun I've had in formyever

Annie said...

I love this post. I think I might have to use this format sometime. I'm afraid my kids would be brutely homest and I might not be ready for that. I'm totally going to listen to this podcast.

Jenny ESP said...

Your kids are keepin' it real, dawg.

Loved yours and Memzy's podcast. Especially the awkward phone call re-enactment. Memzy was an awesome second-place podcaster. Sub-par by first-place standards, but perf for second place.

Kelli said...

This is cute. I think I may have to copy this...

Carol said...

The kids comments--tamer than I expected--very cute.

The podcast--LOVED IT. Cris and I laughed so hard, especially remembering Memzy calling to see if you would be her roommate. I remember at the time thinking, "Hmmm, this could either be really good or really bad". It was a gamble--but paid off big time.

Denver Sims said...

Those questions and answers were so stinkin cute! I LedOL several times....

I'm thinking I need to try out this podcast thing. I don't know why I'm so chicken! =S

Landee said...

Mel, are you scared to listen? Or to be on my show?? Cuz either one is nothing to be afraid of!!!!!!!!!

And apparently I love grocery shopping.... my kids don't know the difference between where I HAVE to go all the time and where I LIKE to go.

Flem said...

Your kids are cuuute.

And funny.

And I am ticked about the podcast. I need to have it on itunes! I can't have my computer with me at all times. I guess I will try my phone but I like it better downloaded, not streaming.

So there ms. techy.

Jenny said...

I think Beebee's answers were my favorites. "Get in the baf!" "nuffing?"

Jenny said...

Oh, and I'm totally stealing this. :)
