I Can't Believe I'm Sharing This

For Marianne's first (and possibly last) radio appearance, click below:

Worst WGN Guest EVER

For the record, I came from a family of four kids, not seven.  I was nervous. 

Joe is the one who came from a family of seven.

English majors aren't good at math.

Or at radio.

Or at hiding the donuts once they realize the nutrition expert is in the studio:



I don't care what the "industry people" recommend for next time (if there is one).  Jim Beam and I will be tying one on. 

Kathie Lee & Hoda got it right.

Which is why I'm only listening to drunk women from here on out.

  2. What? This was awesome! Congrats on the book, and on being epic. And on being Irish. Jim Beam and a box full of donuts...what more could a person want?

  4. O think we need our own radio show. We'll call it "Two English Majors and a Bottle." We'd be bigger than Rush Limbaugh (collectively, not individually).

    1. Kirby - I do believe you're onto something! But ONE bottle? We should probably up our quantity just a bit. To like ten.

  6. I'm just in awe of your in-laws. Six boys and one girl...seven kids. Just letting that sink in right now. Wow!

    You are very funny, Marianne! I think you did a great job on your radio interview. This is very exciting and I cannot wait to get my hands on that book!

  7. You were wonderful! Very funny and charming, honestly. And I love that you've let yourself off the hook. I did too, I think we all should. Then we could be honest parents instead of trying to be perfect parents.

  13. You did a great job, but wow! I have a whole new sense of how hard a live interview must be ... he wasn't exactly easy on you! (And still, you rocked it. Pretty amazing, if you ask me.)

  14. I think you did great considering it's hard to be funny when you are the only funny person in the room Sorry Bill

  15. I'm with everyone here - you did great! It doesn't matter how many siblings you think you grew up with. :-)

  16. Ha! My brother called tonight & was all "where are these other siblings of which you speak???"

    Thanks for the support, Mare!
