Audition #3

My audition on Friday fulfilled my goal of 2-3 auditions this month. This time it was a Chevron internet commercial. My thought is that it's one of those commercial ads that play before the internet video you really wanted to watch. It went okay. I was auditioning for the role of the dog groomer. I know, it doesn't make any sense because it's a gas commercial, but if you saw the story board, you would understand. I read for the part, did my thing, and was on my way.

I don't know how well it went...I had a really rough day earlier and I'm not sure I was 100%, but I gave it my best and all I can hope is that I still somehow managed to shine. I may not have been on my A-game, but like everything else, sometimes you have to pretend to be happy and cheerful despite the way you are actually feeling. Happiness is a state of mind, right?

It was a beautiful afternoon in SF and I was trying to make the most of it, but I couldn't help but wish that I were sharing it with someone special. In fact, as I was sipping on my Peet's Jasmine Lime Tea Cooler and people-watching, I knew that my own "Mr. Big" would have whole-heartedly enjoyed the spectacles that were strolling down the street that day. Let me just say that some people just don't know what works when creating an ensemble. Despite some atrocities, I did see some well-dressed fashionistas. Those ladies were the ones to reaffirm my notion that if I did live in the city, I would be more likely to push the fashion envelope on a daily basis. Don't get me wrong, I do take chances here where I live, but it doesn't quite always have the same feel or effect unless you're in the city.
