The "Deets"

Well, I did it! Thanks to help and support of Mrs. S. I got my 30 seconds of fame with the DOND people. After standing in line from 10:30-3:00 (a bunch of that outside in less than spring weather!) I got to talk to the casting director for 30 whole seconds about myself.

Mrs. S. and I had been practicing my spiel and we decided the jewelry-sparkly angle was the best bet. I woo'd, showed my shoes (per KK's instructions) and told them about my heart necklace with my mom & dad's ashes (which I was wearing). I felt confident and was really happy with myself for having tried! I didn't get asked for the second round questions yesterday (I was upstaged at my table by a recovering meth addict) but they said just because it didn't happen yesterday doesn't mean they aren't going to call me in 6 months, so my dream is still alive.

Mrs. S. was in charge of picture taking and she did a stellar job. I probably won't have time to figure out and post the pic's until this weekend, so definitely check back for those!
