LOOK WHAT THE CAT DRAGGED IN. It's Adam! My pal and co-worker! He's the best! Okay, so I approached Adam about doing another duet, and his first choice was "Fairytale of New York" by The Pogues, which is a super fun song, but I just couldn't get over the fact that it's a Christmas song. I know, I know, who cares, but I DO. I had a hard enough time doing a single Christmas song at Christmas time. I couldn't wrap my head around Christmas in August! So...I sort of forced Dirty Old Town upon Adam. I thought he knew the song better than he did. He told me at the time of filming that he had heard it like, twice. Oops. And I hadn't heard it in ages. Double oops. WELL I THINK WE ROCKED IT. Also, can we talk about my multi-instrument multi-tasking here?! What am I, a WIZARD?! Now, Adam and I get on our friend-chat tangents, so while we were shooting, I totally forgot to force him to talk about The Expats, his amazing new podcast. Go to http://www.expatspodcast.ca/ and listen to it. Like, right now. (Okay, not RIGHT NOW. After you watch our duet. It's fascinating and entertaining and I just love Adam as an interviewer. I'm so proud of how well it's already doing just a month in! I cannot believe this is the penultimate week. ONE MORE TO GO. Wow wow wow wow wow.
