There’s something sorta surreal about watching your own goatee bounce while you talk on your own TV, babbling through a video resume, while you dub a Mini-DV tape to a VHS tape because that’s what the interview process requires. Am I sending it in? Well, why not? If only because it’s tangible proof that I’ve been interviewing at companies while looking for a job. Besides, I haven’t been on TV for a couple of years now and I figure I’m due: I’d rather pick where or when I appear, rather than seeing myself flip off Martha Stewart on Court TV or something.
Besides, what else do I have to lose? Self-esteem? Takes more than getting rejected from a reality TV show to dent my psyche… I forgot two lines of a verse of a song while performing live once and I still sing from time to time – ya gotta have a thick skin to make it thru life these days, along with a sense of humor. Then again, maybe I won’t bother to send it in… at least it helped to fill the day.
At least I’m not singing “She Bangs” for them; even I have limits.
