Mama needs a new pair of shoes

Tonight I auditioned for another game show. They didn't mention anything about restrictions for people who've been on other game shows, so I figured I'd go and see what I could do.

They were short-staffed, so the auditions took waaaaaaaay longer than they should have (I was there for nearly four hours), but I think I did pretty well in the three minutes I had to show them what I got. Perkiness has its privileges. I think they really dug the pregnancy thing when they asked me to tell them something cool about myself. They smiled big and asked when I was due. I totally played up the pregnancy card in my interview and the HUGE application I filled out. Em Dash needs a college fund! And a bigger place to live! Show me the money! C'mon!

The show is normally filmed in NYC, but they're filming some shows in LA early next month. They told me I did a good job and hopefully I'll hear something good from them soon!

I got to drive my shiny new car across town to the auditions, held at a hotel. When I got back to my car, I saw that someone had left me a note. My first thought was, "Crap! Someone backed into my car!" But when I pulled it out from the windshield wiper, it said, "People make mistakes dick! FUCK YOU!"

Um, jigga what? Jigga who? Honestly, I don't think that's meant for me. When I pulled into the parking lot, there was hardly anyone there, and no cars on either side of me. I was well-within my allotted parking lines. And as Brent noted, people don't usually call girls "dicks."

When I left, there was some big party going on at the hotel's restaurant. My guess is that someone at that party was pissed at someone else from that party, who happens to have bought a brand new car like mine. Or maybe someone parked really poorly next to me, and then someone else who parked on the other side of them didn't like the way they parked and left them a note about their crappy parking job. Then the offending parker thought I left the note.

Who knows?

I immediately checked my car for damage, like tire slashing or keying, but it appears to be fine. I'm not worried about some crazy stalker. Like I said, I don't think it was meant for me. Actually, I find it humorous because it sounds like someone was pissed for being reprimanded for their own stupid mistake.

Whatevs.

  1. Congratulations on getting to drive your new car! The game show, I was guessing Wheel of Fortune by the "come on show me big money" line. Whatever it is, good luck and keep us posted!

  4. Good luck! The episode of the game show I was on is airing again this Friday. Or maybe next Friday. I haven't made a big deal about it 'cause I already put it up on youtube and blogged it.

    Jigga What.

  5. LOL @ Jigga What, Jigga Who! I still use that line during times of confusion myself.

    P.S. Thanks for the help with the planning of my sister and bro-in-law's trip to the big LA! I had actually already checked out the Marriott for them to stay at so we'll see what she says!

  8. Ha ha!! You handled that much more calmly than I would have. I tend to have an over-active imagination and would have convinced myself that I was being followed!

  9. That is random. Glad you and your new car are OK. Gosh, if that happened to me while I was preggo I think I would have burst out in tears and called hubs. So glad that wasn't your reaction!

  10. How bizarre and funny! At least your brand new car is a-ok. That would have been the straw on the camel's back after the whole car ordeal to begin with.
    Talk about making your heart beat a little faster though. lol

  21. You'll have to let us know if you make it to TV so we can watch!

    I'm sure the note wasn't intended for you...or someone was just being silly by leaving a crazy note.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I hope you and em Dash get picked for the show. Fingers crossed for you.

  23. Good luck on making the show!


    I'd have been freaked out with a note like that. I would think that maybe I cut someone off or made someone mad and they followed me.
    My friends used to leave notes on my car on purpose to freak me out. Things like "I'm watching you". Yeah, they're not my friends anymore.

  24. Holy crap! I would have FREAKED the f out and called The Mr to come be my backup from the crazy person obviously hiding in the bushes waiting to attack me.

  25. LOL i wonder if whoever wrote that note knew an innocent glowing and happy pregnant lady would be on the other end of it. What crazies!!

    (but it does make for an excellent post!!)

    good luck on the game show!

  29. Oh! Good luck on the game show! My mom and I REALLY want to go on Wheel Of Fortune (I know, so silly) but I work in "TV" so I can't be on it - until FIVE YEARS after I don't work here anymore! Can you believe that???

  30. Glad your car didn't suffer any damages! People are stupid.

    ReplyDelete
  31. People are weird. I'm glad your car wasn't damaged. I bought an Acura back in '98 and found out it had been keyed a month later. :(

    Here's hoping for good results about the game show!

  32. Yeah for the new car and the game show!
