1. When asked before a crowded audience for provide a one-syllable onomatopoeia, I had to ask what exactly that meant. When the very talented and non-judgmental Derek told me to provide, "A word that's spelled like it's sounded," I grabbed the microphone and said, "Cat." One hundred people audibly cringed, except for my mother who didn't get it either.
2. You have never seen two women angrier than The Beths at the Reno International Airport this morning at 7am trying to get a Quiznos breakfast sandwich. It took 42 minutes. I timed it. There were tears.

In the inevitable moments when you find me wildly annoying and obnoxious, rest easy in the knowledge that last night, under the RENO arch, as I stood before a blinding light attached to a camera and tried to report in the snow surrounded by 4,000 people, some shitheads in the crowd started to throw snowballs at us. Then, they began to throw beer bottles. And in all of my anger and fear, I thought, "This sounds about right."
