I applied to go on "The Amazing Race"
I am SOOOOOOO excited. I have been talking about applying since I first saw the repeats of season 1 and for one reason or the other hadn't been able to. Well, I went with my office mate to an open casting call in Cleveland today and I have now officially applied. YEAH!!!! I am so PSYCHED! It was very cool. We filled out our applications, took the requisite photos and then we went today. We had to stand in the cold drizzle for just under 2 hours and then got to wait in line inside of the House of Blues. We were contestants #90 and then had to wait another hour and a half before we got to go on stage and be videotaped. 2 mins to sell ourselves to the producers. YIKES! And guess what I wore???????? My Sexy Knitters Club Baby Doll T-shirt! Yep, that's what I wore. I wanted to show off my quirkiness and be different so I decided to wear that shirt. Kinda cool, don't ya think????? Anywho, we got a good bit of applause and we certainly were just as good as most and better than a few other teams with their on stage presence (some people were really boring and then others were just 'not quite there'). So, everyone keep their fingers crossed. Maybe late summer - early fall I'll be on TV, carrying my knitting with me traveling around the world! Funny, most teams try to rest on those 8 hour train rides, but me, I'll be a knittin' fool!
I was at sit 'n knit last night talking about this and everyone was really excited for me. I said that with my luck, we will have a task where we go to Japan with all those alleys of hand-dyed silk yarn and have to deliver a barrel full of lovely yarn and then NOT BE ABLE TO KEEP ANY OF IT! Can you imagine??? I think that would be harder than bungee jumping!
Can you tell that I am just a LITTLE excited about this?????
