Finally back with news...

I've been so sick this past week - just general allergy/sinus type things. But, it was so draining. I couldn't tell if it was the medication or what that was making me drowsy, but I will be so glad when the weather stabilizes and I don't have this.

Of course, I also received news that a reality show that I filmed in August last year is going to air. Now, let me preface this by saying that it was NOT MY CHOICE to film the show. I was actually one of the "unsuspsecting coworkers". Translate: I'm the manager of a LSS. The owner hires a girl (because she's in on this) and I'm training her on her first day. Employee turns out to be totally crazy and I fire her after a LONG and WILD day. Meanwhile, my other co-workers are freaking out over the girl and I'm trying to keep them calm while dealing with our new crazy employee. And, it's all on tape.

CBS did a press release about their new reality show "Fire Me, Please!". The third episode features our store and it airs June 21st. I'm a nervous wreck and sick over it because A) I look terrible. The owner had us wear our uniform shirts (which we hardly ever wore) and it was summer and they are heavy denim, etc. B) Goodness only KNOWS the things I did and said on camera. C) I'm fat - enough said about that one.

So, I'm not looking forward to seeing it. Plus, we won't get to see an edited version until the night it airs, so I have NO IDEA what they are going to show. I'd say that 8 hours of film can translate into anything. We all know it's in the editing. Meanwhile, as I await my reality show fate, I'm getting no sleep and I'm avoiding CBS at all costs in the event that a clip becomes part of a promo.

I just hope I survive it. EEK!

I am sure it won't be that bad!! Hang in there :-) And if nothing else you can always tape it and watch it months after it has aired hiding under some blankets for protection:-)

I'm sure you kept your cool (under the circumstances presented you) and the episode will be just fine. Then again, maybe you can pull out an Emmy for this! LOL
