After getting a great nights sleep, Jason and I headed downstairs to find a cafe to have coffee. I was still kinda bummed about not getting a "green card" but wanted to make the best of the vacation time we had left.
I was not going to put make-up on or do my hair but I thought...maybe I should just in case I run into someone in the lobby...
We decided to check out the casting call room to see how many women were there and were surprised to see it was pretty quiet.
Danielle (the casting director) was rounding the corner so I said, "Hi Danielle"! She stopped and just looked at me (we had not met the previous day) so I continued, "I'm Tracy. I was here yesterday with the Everything Marinator".
This is my favorite part...
Danielle says, "You're Tracy?! The Everything Marinator Girl?!?! "We have been talking about you! Do you still have your marinator"?
With the biggest smile, I replied, "Yes, we're staying here at the hotel and it's in the room".
"Great"! Danielle says, "we want to hear more about it and find out how it would be made. I was going to call you and ask you questions over the phone but now we can hear about it in person. Could you come back at 10am and tell us more"?
Danielle instructs me to "wait right here" and when she returns, she HANDS ME A GREEN CARD!!!
Oh, the much sought after "green card"! Written on it was the number 1. I practically skipped up the stairs, I was so happy!
And here Jason thought we were finished talking about the casting call... :)
Jay and I head to go get coffee and go over what I will say in my 2 minute demo. We had thrown out the meat and veggies we were going to use the previous day for the demo so I did not have a "prop" but Danielle had said that was fine.
We both thought it was a good sign that they were "talking" about me and my invention the night before. I wonder if they had already started going over the tapes from that day?
I only drank a tiny bit of coffee...I did not want to be too "wired" during the demo...and we headed back to the room to get ready. Of course I took a picture of the "green card" and texted it to all of my friends. One friend thought I had borrowed it from another girl and was playing a joke on her. Ha ha!
With The Everything Marinator in hand and more make-up applied, we pressed LL in the elevator....
To be continued....
