Surprisingly, the Harrah’s in Joliet, Illinois (just outside Chicago it turns out) has free wi-fi 🙂
So, we’re coming to you live this morning. Hannah’s pretty wiped. Joel wussed out and slept in the van. Dad and I are sitting on the floor twiddling our thumbs. Ha ha.
We were the fourth group to get here. It’s so funny, this one guy has totally taken charge and made a sign in sheet for when a ton of people get here so that there’s not a mad rush to get to the front of the line. Clever. Seems to be working. People are going along with it. Everyone here is really chummy, but we haven’t really socialized much. (Well, Dad has, but he always makes new friends when we go places-poor guy, he’s such a trooper)
We’ve spent most of our time filling out our applications and figuring out what we’re going to say in our two minute audition. We’ve come up w/ a top 10 list of reasons why CBS should put us on the race. But I won’t share those now. Gotta save something for later.
The line doesn’t officially form until 6 a.m. and they don’t let us in the audition waiting area until 8 a.m. Actual auditions start at 10 a.m.
I’m not gonna lie, I’m getting a little worried they’re going to take one look at my birthday and tell us to peace out…
which is a very real possibility. And we knew that. I know that. But I just hope against hope that we at least get a shot at it. Oh! We might be lining up! Gotta go!!!!
