Twinkie Chan on TV!

On Xmas Eve, my local NBC News station aired a little segment about me and my work! It was pretty cool to watch it with my parents and my bestie! Manda took a video on her iPhone of all of us watching it for the first time. I hope she posts that so I can show you. You get to hear me shout about stuff like how crooked my teeth are on a giant flat screen HDTV!

I was really excited to be contacted by a local producer, who at first just asked if I had scarves to sell her! Next thing I knew, I was furiously hanging prints in my house and trying to make the place look okay for her and the camera man/interviewer to film me in my environment! They were here for about 2 hours, and Manda helped dog-sit!

This is pretty much the first time someone else has filmed me talking and is the first time I’ve seen myself on TV. I have avoided being on TV before because I was too scared…I coulda been on DIY Network a few years back! Yes, I’m a total girl and totally mortified and completely focusing on all my physical flaws and all the weird ways I say things when a camera is pointed at me! But it’s still pretty cool, so I’ll share it with you guys! :P
