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!
