I will actually curse out loud when the telephone rings or someone knocks when I am recording. WAY TO RUIN THE MOOD ! Especially when you are working on a dramatic reading.

Also, I live under under the flight path of the Van Nuys airport. I think I have mentioned this before, but I need to get it off my chest again.

Wow, small world - I live not too far from there myself so I know exactly what you mean!
In my neighborhood we also have lots of chickens - noisy, noisy chickens!!

Stoogeswoman,

Do you live near the Van Nuys airport or under its flight path?

Pam

No chickens in my neighborhood

Hi Pam -

We're in Reseda, slightly to the south of the flight path. (So it would hit the chickens, not us. :lol: )

Lovely, Stoogeswoman!
I'm in Encino. It's nice to know a fellow Librivoxer is so close!

I'm between a train bridge and a highway bridge, more like under the train bridge, near the LaGuardia Airport, with 24/7 garbage collection. Amtrak trains only take a few seconds to pass, but freight trains...that's time to take a break. Then, of course, there are circling helicopters, jackhammers, and sirens. Thanks for letting me finally share all that!
Peace be with you,
Sister

My husband just restored a big chiming clock which sits in the living room, giving out Big Ben-style chimes every quarter of an hour. Usually I turn it off while I'm recording, but sometimes I forget, then suddenly:

bing bong bing bong
bong bong bing bong
bing bong bing bong
bong bong bing bong
BONNNNGGG!!
BONNNNGGG!!
BONNNNGGG!!
BONNNNGGG!!
BONNNNGGG!!

etc. - you get the idea!! :mrgreen:

*I* would, but *he* won't - he loves hearing it!!

And yes, I could (and probably should!) turn it off while I'm recording, but I keep forgetting. :mrgreen:

...when you are sick and have been without a voice for going on three weeks and you've PLed everything you can find with a ~ and you can't find anything more to do? [sigh]

I'm pathetic when I'm sick. :cry:

I'm so sorry you lost your voice! That happens to me frequently, but I've never PLed. I'm just out of commission.

Oh my! If I couldn't keep myself busy with PLing and editing I don't know how I would survive being sick this long. I'm exhausted from television.

I'm sorry to hear this is a recurring thing for you. I've never lost my voice before. It's definitely not fun.

Be well,
Linny
