Maths + English :: Your Boy CNNing

Hey fam, well the CNN thing has come and gone and what have we learned?

Time delays suck. I suck at looking where I’m sposed to look (the little smiley face above the camera thing). Lesson learned in kindergarten remains true: I suck at sitting still. And it all ends up looking so unpretty.

And I still suck at math, especially on TV.

So I was making some point about the real issue around John McCain is whether he supports corporate interests vs. the public interest (prompting “Right Wing” Mike from the Daily Standard to call me “boring”…ohhh man, if only!) and said it was something we’d all be looking at more closely over the next 5 months of this election. Mike corrected me, said 8. The actual answer is 8 and 1 week and 2 days.

Ah, so what. Still breaking stereotypes, I am!

Shout out to Jill “In The Middle” Zimon. They doubled us up this time so next time they should give us twice as long.

If anyone wants to send me a Youtube link of my date with infamy or a calculator, do that thing.

I’m no longer ridden with the flu, but I gotta head outta town for some work.

Back on Tuesday or Wednesday with more 2G2K and other hot sh*t…

Chuck/Flav 2012!

    Hi Jeff! I agree – more time for you and me! 🙂

    I sent you the youtube of what I uploaded – disregard the first couple of seconds of Tony and then Michael – you and I look fab. 🙂

    (Sorry Tony and Michael – my 14 year old helped me!)

    Nice to meet you, Jeff.

    Here’s the link for your readers.

    The math stereotype may have been broken, but damn, it still looked like the passive Asian was being overpowered by the dominant White folk.

    And 2012? That’s the end of the Mayan calendar. Folks say that something revolutionary and completely world turning will happen that year. Will that Chuck and Flav ticket be it?

  4. Zentronix says:

    NB, OUCH! Nah, I was just another Asian being overpowered by sucky technology.

    Thanks Jill for the link, I’m gonna embed it now.

    To be fair to Jeff, it is INCREDIBLY difficult to really do this with four people – only one of whom can see us!!

    But, I do owe Jeff an apology – Tony definitely says your name at one point to call on you and then I jumped in!!! I didn’t hear that AT ALL during the show and then only heard it after watching the YouTube video. I did NOT mean to do that. I am really sorry!

    Anyway – hopefully getting a Youtube loaded of it will partially make up for that enthusiasm I let out on the show. See – they have to have us back so I won’t do that and you can do it to me next time. 🙂

    lol. You know I was just messing with you.

    hey jeff you got points with the chuck/flav comment. just prepackage some more witty zingers and you’re there!

  8. Zentronix says:

    NB, my fam was like ‘eh, you showed your aloha spirit by letting everybody speak before you.’ i was thinking, ‘oh yeah, that’s why we have more tourists than we’d ever want!’

    EA, how much do you cost per zinger?

  9. Easportski says:

    for you it’s free, fam, just keep me in mind when you land that EIC job…
