I Can Die Happy

So this came as a surprise to me… Dan Savage mentioned my name on the latest Savage Lovecast, referring to this post.

The segment begins at the 2:30 mark; my name is mentioned at the 5:26 mark.

Ok, so he called me Hemant “Motta”… I’ll take it!

(Thanks to Sarah for the link!)

    Dan Savage, what a ‘name-dropper’, I would tell you more about why I dislike ‘name droppers’ but I have to get dressed for the club – hanging with Nikki Minaj and Naomi Cambell tonight.

    He has such a nasally Kermit-like voice, you can’t be mad. *I love his voice, I’m just sayin.

    I’m a little behind on my Savage Lovecasts. I still haven’t listened to the last one yet. I’ll have to listen on my way to work tomorrow.

    Don’t worry about the mispronunciation. You say toh-Mehta, he says toh-Motta, you say poh-tay-toh, he says poh-tah-toh…. ;)

    Hehe. People have been saying my name wrong all my life. You get used to it. ;)

  • CelticWhisper
