Coat-tails Are Comfy

TLC Network, home of the famed Wedding Story, Trading Places and Little People, Big World, is currently casting for a new documentary styled reality show about singles in L.A. My friend, Amy (pictured above), auditioned last night to be the single, or at least one of them. As part of the schtick, she brought three friends with her who knew her well enough to answer fairly in depth questions regarding her love life. I was one of those friends.

I don't watch TV (I am actually addicted to it, so we don't have it in our house or I become a waste of a person) so it's a little ironic that if they choose Amy to follow around for a weekend of single-dom I'll be on the forbidden small screen. The basic plan, as far as I can tell, is the four of us would go out on a Friday/Saturday night with a camera crew and they'd film us having fun. We're hoping they pick up our tab.

I am not single in LA and thank god. I did manage to talk extensively, as did Amy's other two friends, on why we think she is last night. They recorded our interview without Amy in the room. Then they asked her the same questions they asked us and recorded her answers. Even if they don't pick us, which...let's face it, slim chance...I'd be very interested to see how different our answers were from Amy's. So more on that to come.

The Busker piece is nearing the end of the middle. I have to think of which point I want to stop telling the story and how to do it artfully. Ending when we land back in the US seems trite. Hopefully once I get there I'll know it.

Lisa wrote "I read your stuff. I like your stuff. I'm concerned about your cat. Sending the work out tomorrow." The cat comment is about the piece Tranimal, where my orange boy cat gets a sex change. He's fine now and I put Lisa at ease with this adorable pic ala Hillary:
