The New Face of Failure

Our Pat Sajak keychain means a lot to us. After filling out fake information for a Sony Card they gave him to me. What?! I had to walk away with SOMETHING. Last Saturday, Elliott and I tried out for WHEEL! OF! FORTUNE! They had three "mock" shows that lasted an hour each. A total of 20-30 people were called onstage in groups of five to solve puzzles and show off their personality. Let me tell you. That Pat Sajak wannabe host missed out on a LOT of personality by not calling up me or Elliott. Before each show, everyone had to put their applications into what is fondly known as the "Barrel of Dreams." Of course, our dreams were lost in the barrel that day. We did see a lot of people that we knew there--comforting to know we weren't the only ones doing this. We only put in our applications for the second show, not having the timliness to arrive on time for the first and not having the stamina to stay for the third.

Those who are crying for us need not worry, there's still some hope. They said that at the end of the tryouts they would pull a few more names at random and invite those people to the final audition. Let's see, 300-400 people per show, three shows Saturday, three shows Sunday... That means we have a 2 in 2000 chance of getting pulled!

2 in 2000 is a pretty good chance. Similar to my bingo odds... you see how that's going. I'll keep my hopes alive! I want to see you 2 on TV!

You are not missing out! If there was one t.v. gameshow host I hate, Pat Sayjak would be it! I went to a live taping once awhile back, and he was so mean to the audience! He acted all nice and fun on camera, and then was really big jerk when the cameras turned off. I feel very strongly about this, but you are better off...

I'm really close to Tempe...Like McClintock and Hayden? We're on the other side of the Loop 202. Do you wanna hang this week sometime?

T and Jackie Isom said...

First of all, I think it's funny we're communicating through our blogs, second I guess you've figured out my secret...I have a horrible sense of direction! Ok, if McClintock and Hayden are the same streets, than I live on Hayden and McKellips. Is that better? Oh, Thursdays work great for me too! What do you want to do?

I wondered how that turned out. Darn it! At least you tried.
