AudioBlogging when half asleep.

Definitely lacks AJ's concise nature and production values... but whaddya expect at 1:53 in the morning?? And Maria? She's no aquí, amigos. Wish the call I took during this audioblog had been one of the ones in Spanish - you could have listened to my painfully nonexistent "Es-span-ohl" as Peggy Hill says.

Really am sorry about the Carl von Cosel bit. But if you're intrigued by the macabre story, you can read more details here. {{{shudder}}} The creepiest part is that fact that a Key West funeral home actually put the poor woman on display for people to come and check out von Cosel's "handiwork." Twisted. (And yes, there are pictures on the Internet and I ain't sayin' where...)

well, you're taking all the wrong number calls in good spirits anyway :)
much more good naturedly than i probably would have been taking them at that time of night. :)

A couple of the calls I got were in Spanish, a language I don't speak. I had to use my Sesame Street Spanish to explain that Maria was "no aquí."

Another entertaining glimpse into la vida de Merujo! Loved it! Hope you finally got some sleep!

You've got a great voice!

Gosh, AJ - thanks! That was actually my nasal, stuffy sinus, just woken up voice. I sound a little better fully awake and not taking ?Donde esta Maria? calls. :-)
