Casting Video update
I have to report on this nonsense before I leave because this night has been hilarious. I don't want to wait until I come back to write this!
The guy came at 6:30 with full gear in tow and it was awesome. We had some TV guy in our apt! Anyway, he was really professional and worked so hard to get the best shot. He first talked with us for a bit before setting up, letting us know what to expect, etc. I figured he'd shoot us on the couch, but nope, we had to stand, which is totally not as comfortable as being on the couch. So anyway, he did a 1-1 with me first, then Josh, then both of us together. For the 1-1s the other had to be in another room. It was like the friggin newlywed game. I was totally nervous during mine and probably acted completely unnatural. I don't know how anyone can be comfortable in front of a camera like that. Not me. Once the they did the interview w/the 2 of us I was really comfy (one beer and one glass of wine later....) and it made things easier being able to banter w/my honey. I'm not sure if we killed it or what, but we'll see. It was fun but a little weird.
After that he asked if he could record us on the wall. So we suited up and put our harnesses on and I climbed up the wall a bunch while he recorded. It was fun cause he took the camera out of the tripod and moved around while we did our thing. I totally want to see how it all turns out!
We called it a wrap and asked our new friend if HE'D like to climb and he did! We spent the next hour or so belaying him and chatting and it was nice. He is local and I found out he's a runner. We're going to try to meet up after the Shamrock race next weekend! I'm totally pumped.
We found out that about 30 other people are being interviewed for the show right now. I am about 100% sure they won't ask us to do it. And if by any chance they did, we'd probably turn it down. I don't know.... I'll go into the details later on the questions that he asked and how we responded. I'm too anxious to recant all that right now, but it was a really interesting process and I'm happy we did it!
Anywho...I have to wake up in less than 5 hours and I'm no where close to going to sleep. I am going to hate myself tomorrow. I just know it.
