So....A LONG time ago, this cousin wanted some proof that I did indeed meet THE Ryan Seacrest! Now back in the days when Ryan Seacrest was still cool (does anyone else think he's a little out-of-control now?) I snuck in a picture with him. Literally broke the American Idol rules and stole a picture with Seacrest. The girls around me were so jealous. Oh....and yes....I have tried out for American Idol....twice. These picks of from the first attempt, cycle 2.
My 3 try-out buddies I met there....the boy, Jeff, made it to the final 24.
We slept in the parking lot of the Rose Bowl until they opened the gates the next morning....I think I was the only one that slept. The next morning my Mom informed me that a missed an awesome party, with karaoke and games. Ha. She's funny.
And.....the picture!!! The camera was a little zoomed in and keep in mind....I slept on the ground. Ha. Not so flattering but, so fun, right? This pic made the whole trip worth it. I had a HUGE Seacrest crush!
Here's another picture just for fun. At work the other day we were talking about mice and rats and how people hate them, and I couldn't help but admit that I once had plenty of rats as pets. Not just pets to look at but, pets I played with. Pictured below is one of them dressed up in Barbie clothes. You gotta fess up and agree this one is cutie though, right?
And now ya know.
