The Primer of Love

8 of Miette’s 2006 Predictions for the New Year:

— I will really really do all those things I meant to do in 2005, including those things in 2005 I was really really going to do after neglecting in 2004.
— Ditto 2003.
— When thinking of these podcasts, I’ll follow at least three of the Dalai Lama’s instructions, and be better off for it. (Though that one about silence; I’m doubting I can do much with that one.)

— Oh, that one last thing from the 2002 list, I’ll do that too.
— Miette’s Bedtime Story Podcast will be noticed by the recording industry, complete a series of sold-out stadium tours, and have mashups produced interlacing these stories with the lyrics of dead rockstars. I will donate proceeds to libraries and digital audio archival efforts, and maybe have a little party.
— I will get around to satisfying the few outstanding story requests, and maybe even take new ones (leave requests in comments or email to miette (at) this domain).
— Miette’s Bedtime Story Empire will start Podcasting in 64 languages, then become the subject of a minor politics-or-drugs scandal which will only increase its popularity and prove its longevity.
— And maybe even this site will get a redesign.

Stay tuned, be happy and prosperous, and check back next year to see how much of this happens.

All the best,
Miette

Miette,
I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your reading. The sound quality is awful, the volume too low, but your style is great, your voice beautiful, your accent beguiling. Please keep going. You’re one of the good things about the Internet.

Madame Miette: I was absolutely delighted to find your podcast today and had to physically brace myself to prevent from bursting out laughing in the supermarket when listening to your Wodehouse story, when the ape bursts into English. Well done and thank you so much.

For 2006, I am attempting to follow the teachings of Spencer Tracy, “Speak loudly & clearly and don’t trip over the furniture.”
