“Hi, this is ldy of livejournal, also known as eldee or liddy or even eyedee by people who think my el is an eye, and whenever I'm in times of trouble, beatnik sidearm comes to me, typing words of wisdom, KBT... K.

Ok, that totally didn't work. I mean, not only was there an extra syllable, but it was almost entirely inaccurate. Why, I've never even met the mysterious "mister beatnik."

But I believe in him. Oh, yes I do. In fact, all of us little gnomes who live in your computer and your MP3 player believe in you, beatnik. And we'd all really appreciate it if sometime you could just sidle up to the bar, and order a nice stiff drink and just turn your head and pretend you never saw us. Oh, c'mon. You owe us. This IRiver is so totally not up to code. Don't make me come up those headphones!

KBTK single-listener, mp3 gnome-supported radio for beatnik His Own Personal Self.

I was serious about the drink part.”

You should hear me do "the number you have dialed has been disconnected" schpiel. I had that on my answering machine for a week before people realized it was a hoax ;)

I think she has a books on tape career she isnt telling us about.
ldy From: ldy Date: June 2nd, 2004 09:37 pm (UTC) (permalink)
I've actually considered pursuing that, or at least doing voice-overs. I keep meaning to put together a demo tape. Maybe in Florida :)

Tell them about Aprithia!
ldy From: ldy Date: June 3rd, 2004 08:17 am (UTC) (permalink)
Hee. I was just thinking about that yesterday!

due to virus, I finally lost those.

Ah well. Nuts.

I hope I'm not the only one who pronounces "ldy" as "lady"!
ldy From: ldy Date: June 2nd, 2004 09:36 pm (UTC) (permalink)
Nope, I pronounce it that way, too, m'lady!

Other pronounciations didn't even occur to me until a friend used an automatic reader (like the blind might use) for his livejournal for kicks, and I came out El-dee! I've seen quite a few Idys as well :)

well, there you go, I was wrong again.
I read it as elldeewye
which makes me think of elderberry wine

I'm in the 'liddy' camp, but I just found out the other day that Randy thought it was 'eyedee'.

You sound like you should be spinning love songs on the radio late at night. :D
ldy From: ldy Date: June 3rd, 2004 08:18 am (UTC) (permalink)
I take requests at 1-900-do-me-ldy!

OK, I don't really.

you just totally made my day
ldy From: ldy Date: June 3rd, 2004 08:18 am (UTC) (permalink)
Yay! That's one of my favouritest things to do, you know! :D

Bravo!!!! This post took me back to age five when I used to listen to shows like "the shadow" on the radio. How very wonderful. I will play this over and over and over. It is as though you have captured a piece of my childhood and put in on the web. It's now what you said although that was creative and charming and highly amusing. It was the wonderful wonderful way you said it. Thank you...
ldy From: ldy Date: June 3rd, 2004 08:20 am (UTC) (permalink)
That's one of the most wonderful compliments I have ever received. Thank you so much :) I'm gonna be glowing all day from this, I can tell!

I nearly camped it up and did the gnome voices in an Irish brogue, but chickened-out at the last second.
keethrax From: keethrax Date: June 3rd, 2004 10:23 am (UTC) (permalink)
I knew it was lady, but nevertheless my mind still translates it as el-dy due to the missing a. I was unsure for a while what it should be, but based on some other stuff it was obvious.
papoose From: papoose Date: June 3rd, 2004 06:16 pm (UTC) (permalink)
hah!
pretty good :)

I'd say you've been on stage before.
ldy From: ldy Date: June 3rd, 2004 09:30 pm (UTC) (permalink)
Mmm... Maybe once or twice ;)
papoose From: papoose Date: June 4th, 2004 07:24 am (UTC) (permalink)
I had definite stage fright when I made my call. I wouldn't even release the first two. Then I just rattled that off. I can't stand the sound of my own voice.

You're voice is sexy.
ldy From: ldy Date: June 4th, 2004 09:21 am (UTC) (permalink)
Aww, thank you :)

Between you and me? I didn't release my first two and don't like the sound of my own voice, either.
