Let me back-up.
Every now-and-the my husband let’s me grace his podcast with my own segment, Kacie’s Krazy Korner (ugh, so racist). I say “now-and-then” meaning; I just did it now and then one other time last year. It’s a few and far between thing.
The last time, he gave me the task of reviewing Batman from the DC re-launch (or was it Catwoman? It may have been that…or Batgirl…who remembers?). I don’t remember much but I remember thinking Commissioner Gordon was a jerk as he was cheating on his pregnant wife. Seriously, that’s it.
On Thursday of last week, while I was at work, I got a call from my husband who was bored in the Chicago airport. He made it seem like he had something uber important to tell me, alas, no. He called to tell me my segment would be on this week’s THN. I was tasked with relaying a brief history of Ultron. The catch? I had to do it drunk; it would by my version of Funny or Die’s drunk history. I WAS ALL IN.
Friday night, I went out after work for drinks with co-workers, and then met up with my husband and friends at a beer tasting down at the Upstream Brewing Company, followed by dinner. Needless to say, I was wasted. My husband and I came home where we drank another beer or two while watching the The Mindy Project. He reminded me that I needed to record the history of Ultron during this viewing. So I began to “study,” but distraction set in, repeatedly. He yelled at me “WOMAN! Write down some notes!” So I wrote some notes.
“What have you learned so far?” he asked, I replied I have learned that I really like this TV show and that Ultron was an Avenger (that is of course incorrect), distraction once again (my pugs do super cute things) and finally with my notes written and The Mindy Project over I was ready to record.
Apparently my segment was to only be about three minutes, hence a BRIEF drunk history. Three minutes into my segment I had already touched on Batman, Superman and Jean Valjean. This was the point between my husband’s giggles and Beeps Baum licking my feet (pug life ya’ll), that he came to realize that this drunk history was going to be around 20 minutes.
I’m not going to spoil it for you on here what all I talked about. If you’ve ever watched any of the drunk histories online you’ll get it. My voice is all over the place, spitting out ridiculousness left and right. There’s major subject jumping at its finest is on display as well. I didn’t pass out or vomit, so I feel I’m above average in that area.
I highly recommend you listen to this week’s THN of course, but if you want to hear my full version of the drunk “brief” history of Ultron, you can click here. Enjoy!
