Fame at last.

After seeing the photo of me speaking in a church the previous weekend, today I discovered that my sermon from yesterday (30.11.08) is on t'internet, so now I've heard myself in action too. How disturbing. I sound like Billy Connolly. To think I thought I didn't have an accent. You could hear what it sounds like here BUT I must warn you that as to listen to it compromises my otherwise watertight (not) anonymity on this blog, then if you click this link I will have to kill you. Please note I wasn't doing the Bible reading which you hear first - that was a man. If you do listen to it you will be giving up a good chunk of your life as I went on a bit and also you will have to do without my lovely powerpoint slides which I neglected my children to produce on Saturday.

I didn't listen to the whole thing, but it was so lovely to hear your voice. (And strangely, i was just writing about the individual / community dichotomy the other day.)

I promise not to tell anyone your real name. :-)

I've just heard the opening few words of your good self and have now downloaded it, so that I can listen to all of it in a quieter mo. Thanks, A-D.

I'm a sucker for a Scottish accent: you could recite the Glasgow phone book and I'd be eating out of your hand.

But I like living.......so will I or won't I? Will I need witness protection?

I managed to listen to half of it before getting dragged away but yes I know the moment of death by powerpoint, so common a crime in our part of the world.

OK...I clicked the link to listen..does that mean you must kill me now?? ;)
I promise to keep your anonymity!

I took a listen - WOW! Good Stuff! You're a great speaker in addition to being a wonderful writer.

Of course, now I'll have to watch my back, won't I?

Sadly I don't have time to listen right now, but if you sound like Billy Connelly, how is that a bad thing? LOL! I think he has a lovely accent.

That's a beautiful old wall, by the way!

Wonderful wall, I'm going to keep the sense of mystery alive, I won't listen, not unless curiosity gets the better of me......

Thanks Tom!!

UHDD, I like the idea of there being a sense of mystery, lol. I once read a couple of novels written by someone I know slightly - Elizabeth Wein in my sidebar - and found I "heard" the whole books in my head in her (American) accent.
