At 3:30 the doors opened at the hotel conference room in Baltimore. There were about 50 people in our group, some from the Wheelmobile event in October, and some from the "Face of the Fan" video entry that I did. We all got called to stand up where we were and call letters for the puzzle on the overhead screen. I was surprised by how many people still called letters that had already been called or didn't speak up at this audition.

This is fast becoming a game-show blog.

So a few months ago the Wheelmobile came to Baltimore a few months ago.  I was intrigued, but I had already made plans to go out with my friends that weekend, and reading up on the event it sounded like a huge headache.  You go and stand in line and wait in a big room, and they draw a few names out of a hat to play the game, but most people don't even get a chance to play. 

But they also had an option for people in the Baltimore area to send in a video.  I meant to do it, but I kept pushing it back hoping for inspiration to strike.  It never did. Finally, on the day it was due, I went outside so I didn't have to clean my house and said, "I'd like to be on the show because I want to win a fabulous vacation."  I never heard back from them so I figured that was it.

Then yesterday I got an e-mail inviting me to the callback auditions!  They're coming back to town in a few weeks and I guess they just went through the videos to pick a few people.

I'm nervous.  I really need to work on my word puzzle skills.  And excited to get the chance to be on a game show again!
