I'm going to be in The Australian

...well, if I don't outrageously stuff up the interview. The reporter is coming around today to interview Sharon and I about sperm donation. They also want a photo, though I assume of our faces, not my sperm.

I'm going to ask for John Smith as my alias again, because I like the Doctor Who reference. Failing that, I may ask if Sharon and I can be called Verity and Sidney :)

Hope we do a good job. It'll be seen by a lot of people and if our words are good it may lead to more people donating.

Post Interview

Interview went well. Sian was great. Sharon and I spoke for a couple of hours about donating, Tracy, Nibblet, SF fandom, droving, mini-strokes, etc. It's looking like we'll be Sharon and Danny Smith.

Photo-wise, none were taken today (was sort of aware of this, as Sian had mentioned it would probably be too short a notice to get a photographer) and she said that if they decide they need a piccie, they may get one of us while we're in Perth! So it'll be a while before the piece sees the light of day.

Of course I shaved my beard off two weeks earlier than I was going to, just in case, but oh well. The interview made a nice break from trying to either render stuff, or get things together for a possible clip I might be doing.

Scary when a two hour interview is more restful than preparations for a con :)
