Extra Extra

Tonight I am hoping to be discovered! Okay I really don't think I will be discovered but I am planning on being an extra in a MOVIE! This isn't just any movie, it actually stars Sandra Bullock. That's huge! And Tim Mcgraw. The movie is Blind Side and it's about a high school football player. Anyways they are filming here in Atlanta and need extras for the crowd at the football game. And yes, yours truly is going to be there.

Okay I am sure you are starting to think that I am a huge nerd. Yes...I admit that I am a nerd and am so excited about this! They are going to be filming tonight and will continue until sunrise tomorrow morning. I can leave whenever, but I am thinking it would be really cool to hang out there all night! I have recruited my friend Bethany to go with me but if she decides to bail at the last minute the Mister said he would go. I think deep down he hopes she bails :-) The only thing that may not be much fun is sitting in 80 degree weather with a coat on, since the movie is taking place in the fall they want everyone to have a coat or hoodie on...hope I don't pass out!

Oh and on my quest to get in shape - I am on day 3 and still going strong, although my legs are a little stiff.

David has been working on that movie. I don't know if he will be there when you are. GOOD LUCK!

Hi Ashley,

Good luck tonight and hopefully you will get a chance to see yourself on the big screen. Being a movie extra can be fun experience. Make sure to take something to pass the time by because. Being an extra is about learning how to hurry up and wait. Also, you can pass the time by getting to know some of the interesting people that will show up to be extras.

Also, I work for a company called Talent Hunter and we offer some of the best casting calls and auditions in the industry. We often have casting calls in the Atlanta area so you can be sure that there are going to be more opportunities for you in the future. Good Luck again and make sure you visit Talent Hunter for other movie extra opportunities.

Hello, just commenting back.. I haven't started Emily Giffin's book yet, but I read The Mating Rituals of the North American WASP. That one I LOVED. It was funny, sweet and a good fast read. I read it on the train home.

That sounds like so much fun! I would TOTALLY go and stay the entire night. I am a huge nerd who would LOVE to be able to be an extra in a movie!!

Thanks so much for reading my blog! You totally amazed me that you went back and read from the beginning. That is something I do when I find a new blog I love, but I didn't know anybody else went back to the beginning!! Thanks!!

Also, good job on three days of working out...I am amazed. I have never had work-out dedication, but now I think I might need to get on the ball to get rid of this baby weight...
