Babies R Us...Again

I have the worst cold ever! Sunday I woke up and could barely move my body. My throat was sore and I couldn't breathe through my nose. I called in sick and literally stayed on the couch all day drinking apple juice. I had to send my honey to the corner store twice. I needed to feel better because I knew the next day was going to be a long one. I was shooting for Babies R Us again and had to be on set at 12:30 which isn't that early, but the shoots are in New Jersey. I fucking hate going to New Jersey.

I got to the set and for this particular shoot there weren't going to be any children, it was a baby shower theme. The other two models were my age, and we thought it was funny that they always cast really young women to play the moms. Apparently, according to one of the other models, when BRU does consumer polls, the majority of the women have the most positive reaction to ads with very young moms. Who knew?

So anyway, the shoot only took about 3 hours and we spent most of the time sitting around and talking. I was surprised by the length of the shoot because the other two times I shot with them, I was only there for about half an hour or so. I felt horrible for one of the other girls, she had an audition for one of the big soap operas at 3pm and totally didn't make it. We didn't get out until 3:15. I wonder if she still got to audition?

These particular ads are supposed to run in all of the parenting magazines so I'll keep an eye out for the next few months. Those would be some great tear sheets for my book.

Progress Report

Tomorrow is a pretty big day!

1. I have an audition for short film that pays per day. I love those.

2. My manager, Chris, set me up with a meeting with a commercial agent tomorrow morning. His name is David McDermott and he's with Jordan, Gill & Dornbaum or JGD. I've heard great things about this agency, although I didn't know they worked with adults, so that's really cool. Chris told me that David is a great guy and very well respected. I'm super excited I really hope that he likes me. It's like Chris read my mind or something because I've been searching around for a commercial agent to submit to.
