Excited…and well, maybe a little nervous

Tomorrow is the big day! Mrs. S. and I are leaving here around 8 am and taking our chances that we won't be number 15,786th in line! I have my 2 page application complete and I am also taking the 11 page application I already had filled out to show my dedication! LOL I'm not just some fly-by-nighter that showed up on a whim, I'm serious in my endeavor to be on DOND. I got my nails done (with the cutest trio of pastel flowers on the ring finger of each of my hands) and I got a new head-to-toe outfit. KK & SS were most impressed with the new bra! LOL All I kept getting from them was "MOM, OHHHH MY GOSH!!" I'll leave you to draw your own conclusions on what that means! The top has some glitter on it, so I decided to go for broke with these shoes: http://qurl.com/mgm1z . I will be able to wear the whole outfit at the bank, so I don't feel like it was a total waste. : )

One of the questions on the 2 page application they are asking for at this audition is "What is the most outrageous thing you have ever done?". I think this was the most difficult for me to answer. I'm not really what I'd consider the outrageous type. I'm silly, whacky, maybe even a little dorky (okay..okay.. a lot) but not really what I'd consider by most people's standards, outrageous. I finally decided to answer the question just that way. I don't think being outrageous is what would make me a good contestant – I think my draw would be just more of "let's see the small town mom do well". We all love that right, seeing somebody who could be our neighbor, our co-worker, or even us do good? Plus… I am a little whacky and dorky for sure, I'll probably try to play that up a bit too!

I hope I will be able to let myself shine through. I don't want to get all worked up and freak myself out. I am trying to do like the little guru guy tells Inspector Gadget as he is helping him utilize all his gizmos, "visual your goals". (And at later as he is using the guru's advice Inspector Gadget is able to take down a helicopter with a ball point pen.) I am visualizing myself standing on the stage with Howie and the models and being confident I just picked myself a million dollar case!

So, wish me luck and I'll be sure to report on all the results.
