Anybody Else Get This Email?

My name is Matt Vafiadis and I am a producer for DCTV. I'm working with Lifetime Television on a new pilot series that's going to help one 30 or 40 something couple turn their life around. Your blog is great and I was wondering if you would be so kind as to post our casting notice that I've attached. I see your based in the south but our couple has to be LA based. Please let me know if you have any questions.
I downloaded the casting notice just for kicks. They want a couple who "seem to fight more than laugh" - where were these guys 10 years ago when we really did fight a lot? I'm pretty sure we remember how...we could start fighting for the show. We have to be L.A. based - we could move there. Of course, we wouldn't have jobs, but would get us on TV! Wait, we are supposed to be "super dynamic" - I think we are just "regular dynamic" so not sure we would be acceptable.

What's in it for us? A relationship expert/therapist, the "best" personal trainers/nutritionists, free workouts with experts every day. Hold on a sec...where is the big money payout? You want me to expose my innermost feelings and flab to a national television audience with no cash reward?!? Oh I don't think so.

Anyway, this probably isn't what Matt had in mind when he asked me to post the casting call...but IF you live in the L.A. area, DO fight more than laugh, and ARE super-dynamic, then leave me a comment with your email and I'll forward the notice to you.


  1. haha...isn't it funny how those emails come out of no where? Well, good to know our blogs are being read! I don't wanna talk to Matt so no need to send me the casting info :)

  2. Ooh, I'm 40 something! Hubby is 30 something!
    Aww but we don't fight more than we laugh or live in LA. And I figure dynamic is about 125 pounds away.

    So close! Damn.

  3. That's funny! I never fight with my husband so I'm out. Just watching that would drive me nuts so I'd better not be IN it :)

  4. I couldn't leave another reply on my post - it only goes 3 deep!

    Anywho - I start at 1 minute and then add 20 seconds until the eggs are no longer runny. Sometimes it takes 2 full minutes, especially if I mix egg whites with egg beaters for some reason!

  5. Thanks Biz - hopefully I will end up with the perfect McMuffin!

  6. FUNNY!! I didnt get that but, when I get similar types I think WHO IS READING WHAT I WRITE?!

    and then I forget again until the next time.

  7. Man, have I got an LA based couple for sister and her husband. But don't tell them I said that...shhhhh.....

  8. Nope, didn't get that one, maybe because I'm not a couple, I'm just me :o)

    You were really brave to open that email. I would have been leary that it was loaded with viruses.

    Great job on losing the inches. See the scales don't know it all.

  9. That's too funny! They want drama!
