Cast me, I'm poor.
Occasionally I forget when it's appropriate to joke and when it's just bad timing. Like yesterday for instance, I was on a call-back for a commercial I auditioned for last week and right at the end I said something I probably shouldn't have. But can I just ask if that sounded as cool as I hoped it would? On a call-back for a commercial... Because the next part I should add is that the commercial will only be shown on the internet... And there it is, not so cool anymore. But to be honest I was just excited to get called back for anything so whatever.
After I'd read my lines I was schmoozing with the casting directors, for some reason they were super interested in the fact I do stand-up so I was trying to play into that acting like I was Johnny Jokester. It was pretty shameful, but a lot of what I do is so I'm pretty much used to being a circus monkey by now. Right as I opened the door and was about to walk out I added, "I'll send in the next girl, but I hope she's really bad." Elbow jab, joke joke. They both laughed and I felt good about myself and my stupid comment. And then I turned around and saw the next girl was waiting right there, as in just beyond the door that I had opened while I was wishing her bad luck to the casting directors.
"Cool. Thanks," she said.
Oh shit. This girl was tough looking. Like I'm pretty sure she grew up on the Southside and didn't take "jokes" from a stupid Nebraska girl like me in my stupid plaid shirt and ankle boots. "I was kidding, I swear. I hope you're good. I was awful. You're great. Your skull earrings are great. And your knee high black boots are killer." So please don't kill me.
And I mumbled all the way to the elevators as the girl stared daggers into the back of my head. I felt like a real asshole. That being said, I still hope I get the part. It would be my first paid acting gig and that would be nice.
Speaking of nice, my niece Lola Grace asked me to give her a shout out regarding her new fashion onesies, Lola's Line. That kid is a real go-getter, she's barely seven months and she's already following her dreams. I love it. I love it so much.
I said, "Lola, no one can pull off thigh rolls like you can. So if you've got the body you might as well flaunt it in an adorable onesie." She agreed. She also said you should order one for your baby (boy or girl!) today just in time for Valentine's Day.
So don't thank me, thank Lola. Because she just gave you all a great baby gift idea for your best friend or coworker or cousin or maybe even just for yourself if you're into dolls or something. No judgement here.
