At least I didn’t cuss 

I’ve done my little spot on network TV, on Good Morning, for this week. Wouldn’t say it was fantastic, though my co-panellists, Barry Soper and Paul Sinclair, are excellent, and the host, Brendon Pongia, kept things moving well.
   It’s the usual rush of live TV that I enjoy, though prior to airing I was told that my pin, with the Lucire logo, could elicit complaints from the producer. However, I was also told in advance that the name of the would be announced on air—it wasn’t. Not exactly the best way to get someone in the best mood before they go on air.
   A bit of quid pro quo, since the pay is appalling, would have been appropriate. I observed the other rules: I didn’t mention myself in anything I said. is the name of the game, or at least it should be, in business. Just prior to our segment, they did interview a cyclist emblazoned with sponsors’ , none of whom had paid consideration themselves. My is part of my attire, too.
   It’s either this or my Mohammed cartoon pin (since this network had little problem showing those images).
   Still, next week’s Breakfast live cross should be easier, albeit earlier, with fewer of these non-commercial restrictions. Or I hope so.

I just watched it on video cassette: you can hardly see the logo. Jeepers, and to think all the traffic I send them.  
Jack, I watched the show and think you came off well. Perhaps next time you can wear a hip Lucire T-shirt instead of a pin.  
Thanks, Andrea! We have a quotation for the T-shirts pending … My friend Ian tried to watch it from the UK but apparently it’s not archived, only webcast at the time of TV transmission. Shame, really: TV One could get a lot more traffic by having it archived for a day (or three, in my case). I also wished we discussed deeper stuff than DIY, though I tried to get to the heart of the matter before the whole thing descended into sexism.  
Jack: amusing story and fairly typical meeja experience. I'm tempted to advise "radical acceptance". What if you completely detached from mention or display of Lucire, and simply invested all your great talent in offering wise, witty, authentic comment on whatever the topic is for discussion.

Just focus on being a great panellist and everything else may just follow.  
Thanks, Johnnie. I’ll play it by ear Friday week. This week’s live appearance on Breakfast should be rather more fun and free anyway.
