So I've been under contract with the VO company for six years now. I must say, it's the only time you might get paid to audition. They pay for your audition hours as long as it's only people under contract auditioning. Open calls there's no pay. But still. How cool is that?
It's a good time to be home. Today was my parents' 21st anniversary and after a fabulous sushi dinner we went home to watch their wedding video.
Their wedding was astoundingly fun. The band was fantastic, the food and setting were elaborate and the booze was everywhere. By the end of the reception everyone was piss drunk and happy and hilarious. It was the happiest wedding I've ever seen. My mom looked beautiful even with her 1988 shoulder padded wedding gown ;-)
This is not her dress. This is what I want to wear--->
One of my mom's high school friends, towards the end of the video, ran up to the camera with my drunk-ass uncle and stammered into the camera, "20... 20 years from now, you... you're gonna watch this and say... hey... hey, what, whatever happened to that girl? An... 20 years from now, you... and say, hey, shit, where's her wrinkles... and... I don't know what I'm saying." And proceeded to laugh her way out of focus. And my uncle grabbed the maid of honor and said "I'm the worst bride of the brother they ever have. I mean... yeah!" And then two of the camo-clad army boys picked my mom up over their heads as their hostage and proceeded to kidnap her from the reception, kicking and screaming. Everyone was laughing and dancing and drinking. And I thought to myself, I am a very cynical person, and I've never been much for girly fantasies... but I want a wedding like that.
