O.M.Goodness.

Oh dear, Y'all.....

I just did something really silly for which I may either be really happy or really embarrassed:

I called in and auditioned for my local country station's version of American Idol:

Sonoma County Idol!







Pardon me, I was giggling so hard I had to pause: I don't know what possessed me, as I normally dismiss that kind of thing, but the grand prize was $1,000.00 and mama needs to get to Tucson this spring, so I figured it would be the perfect thing to try....

The only thing: if you make it past the phone audition you have to sing onstage at a country/western bar here called Kodiak Jack's.

They have a mechanical bull, guys.....

Needless to say, I'll be having a bit of whiskey before I make my Sonoma County debut - IF I get past the phone audition.

Yikes!!!
Wish me luck, and please share with me the silliest contest YOU'VE ever entered!!!

Oh my gosh, I am so excited for you and your ballsiness! Yeeeehaaawww!! You'll be so amazing, and with a little liquid courage, phenomenal. Just don't get drunk and get on the bull. It always ends badly in the movies.

oh that's awesome. That's something I'd do. Not quite a contest but once me and a friend dressed up as Christmas presents to win a $100.00 IKEA gift card. Only the first 100 people would get one. Apparently getting there at 4AM was too late!

Break a leg! And of course I mean that figuratively though I'm sure the mechanical bull might make it possible. ;P

Good luck!!! how is the voting done? do we get to vote for you from afar by calling in? Can't wait to hear how it goes!

Dave said...

Dear friends,

No worries: if I make it to the 16 finalists, I will not indulge in the bull.
I MIGHT try my hand at country line dancing, though :)

Corinna: I thought of you and our discussions on boldness when I was done singing - I know you would have been proud :)

Michelle: You are so loved - it will be the first thing I open upon my return :)

Miznyc: oh my goodness, I bet you were the cutest gift EVER!!! :)

Elaine: I believe voting consists of bellowing your drunken approval from the dark recesses of the bar!! ;)

Dave - no bull :) And yes, I am small but mighty!!!

Oh you will SO kick ass ^_^

Kiki said...

Okay, I'll be the only one who says it: RIDE THE BULL! I so dare you. Plus, seeing as you're judged on audience reponse, if you ride and sing, I bet you'll have the contest all tied up before you even hit the first chorus!

Good luck!!! I don't have a silly contest story - but my baby sister once drove from St. Louis to New York and back handcuffed to three guys as part of a radio contest trying to win tickets to the MTV music awards. She didn't win, but came back with quite the story!

I am not a contest enterer (is that a word) but I did win one for submitting a silly story I wrote about a pair of shoes :) good luck!
