Just another night with the um’s, you-knows, likes, I means, and-uhs, awkward pauses, stuttering, mumbling, heavy breathing, and lip smacks

Well, this will be short and sweet tonight. None of today’s prompts really appeal to me. I can’t think of one thing I truly “relished” this year, I don’t have a favorite kind of play (pathetic), I didn’t have a favorite month in 2011 (none of them were all that hot), and I already blogged about my great partner in crime the other day.

Speaking of my co-host, we just spent another night editing out an amazing amount of um’s, you-knows, likes, I means, and-uhs, awkward pauses, stuttering, mumbling, heavy breathing, and lip smacks from yet another highly educated interviewee. Amazing how much people talk like that—it’s really noticeable when you record it and play it back. Our brains fill in so much and are so forgiving in everyday conversation.
