John on San Fran Radio  
Oh, burst my bubble--John's got a live-in girlfriend! For all those who speculated about the girl he was photographed with at the WGA awards (I think), you were right! Listen to this radio interview John gave in San Francisco on his recent cross-country tour for the scoop:


Well, I'm happy for him!

Wonderful interview, thanks for posting!

Well, I guess that answers the somewhat stale-dated question of whether the long distance relationship with his gf from back home lasted or not. John is an incredible person, and can seriously have any girl he wants -- she must be pretty special if he's fallen so hard for her. So let's get our boy married off so he can stay in the country forever and ever!

I'd thought we had an answer to that stale-dated question already. :P
fruchickfruchick on June 9th, 2009 03:15 am (UTC)
Sorry... I guess some of us don't follow his love life as closely.
Arthnuld Manuhcatsuman: Ollie - DIMPLE!queer_theory on June 9th, 2009 03:17 am (UTC)
It isn't so much about following his love life as it is about reading my flist on a daily basis.
fruchickfruchick on June 9th, 2009 03:19 am (UTC)
Uh... I'll try to do better in the future?
Arthnuld Manuhcatsuman: Ollie - WTFqueer_theory on June 9th, 2009 03:21 am (UTC)
Do whatever you want. My initial comment wasn't meant to insult you, so I'm not sure why you're taking a tone with me.

He pretty much said so in an episode of The Bugle. Actually cringed when Andy reminded him his ex-girlfriend was on the podcast.
fruchickfruchick on June 9th, 2009 08:57 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I don't listen to every single episode of the Bugle, so makes sense that I missed that.
chicalolitachicalolita on June 9th, 2009 09:17 pm (UTC)
You should, it's funny! I even got Andy to read out my email in Italian! :P
fruchickfruchick on June 9th, 2009 09:56 pm (UTC)
I know, I should! I've loved the ones I've listened to.

That was YOU?! How'd I miss that! :^D

I love John ripping on Andy's Italian. XD

As soon as Veronica Lario left Berlusconi literally days after John's comments, I knew I had to write it!

Andy's Italian was... interesting. It started out not too bad and then slowly descended into meaningless drivel!

I guess that explains the reason for the move to a new apartment recently. I sort of guessed it must be.

How great for him! He's so sweet, he deserves all the happiness in the world.

The voice of the male host reminds me of John Barrowman.
Arthnuld Manuhcatsuman: TW - children of earthqueer_theory on June 9th, 2009 03:08 am (UTC)
He really did sound like him!
Madame Magdolene Lives, esq™: Oliveriggle Super Gayalivemagdolene on June 9th, 2009 02:45 am (UTC)
Awww, he sounds so happy and proud! ^_^ So cute.

I'm choosing to believe she's just a ruse for his relationships with Andy and Rob, tho'. ;^)

For all those who speculated about the girl he was photographed with at the WGA awards
Oooh, does anyone have pics from that event?

Yay John!!
Arthnuld Manuhcatsumanqueer_theory on June 9th, 2009 03:47 am (UTC)
They were posted here.
V.: TSCC CameronSarahJohnaurora_84 on June 9th, 2009 03:58 am (UTC)
Thanks so much! No idea how I managed to miss those.

She's v.v. pretty.
Kelsey: abu ghraibgleam_the_cube on June 9th, 2009 05:08 am (UTC)
Wait, wait, wait, wait... her name is Kate? So... that would make them John & Kate, right?

I have nothing else to add, I'm just pointing out a potentially hilarious coincidence. I'm done now.
Gina R Snape: John Oliver Hi Ginagina_r_snape on June 9th, 2009 03:58 am (UTC)
Oh bless. He sounds deliriously happy.

Photos, you ask? I'm guessing this is her.


V.aurora_84 on June 9th, 2009 07:46 pm (UTC)
Ooooh, thank you so much for all the links.
Gina R Snape: John Oliver Hi Ginagina_r_snape on June 9th, 2009 07:54 pm (UTC)
Sure. Her name is Kate Norley and I googled her today while bored. Here's another pic of them, and he looks happy.

Aw, that was an amazingly adorable interview.

To second the commenter above, he does sound so, so happy. And they have a great how-they-met story! I'd be jealous, but that'd be insane and he just sounds too happy.

And I love that the female interviewer was such a fangirl.
la Reina de la Torta: John Oliver: Dimples!_lady_vanilla_ on June 9th, 2009 07:05 am (UTC)
I figured as much when he said about someone telling him he can't wear horizontal and vertical stripes. XD

Good for him! =D
la Reina de la Torta: John Oliver: Dimples!_lady_vanilla_ on June 9th, 2009 07:11 am (UTC)
There's something adorable about him dating a veteran and how she's tougher than him. SQUEEEEE!

I didn't much care for the slightly racist remark about Aasif Mandvi and I'm glad John sorta went WTF as much as he could, under the circumstances.
gammaguilt on June 9th, 2009 07:42 pm (UTC)
that woman interviewer is a little overwhelming to me. probably if I knew her better it would be OK.
is John confused about which character John Hodgman plays in the Apple commercials?
Madame Magdolene Lives, esq™: Animated Hodgealivemagdolene on June 10th, 2009 05:00 am (UTC)
Hodgman was big on using a Mac apparently before he got the Apple contract (as he's mentioned in interviews when it inevitably comes up). I think the Mac guy thing is about the fact Hodge (I like calling him that ^_^) and John are friends (squee!) and he's a spokesman (more or less) for Apple.

Super cute story about John Hodgman in the Apple Store interview with Demetri Martin (and of course, John "interviewing" him) if you haven't heard it! :^D
