My Gift to You

If you ever wanted black-mail material, here ya go! About six months ago, Brett and I were asked to be on a local game-show. Six months ago, when it didn't sound so embarrassing, we agreed. Last night, we followed through.

As we were driving there, Brett and I decided if anything turned questionable, like giant knives hanging from the ceiling, large, open, body bags awaiting, that sort of thing, we would swallow the SD card with all of these pictures on it hoping there would be a body on which to do an autopsy (we watch way too much CSI). Luckily, it didn't come to this. Brett and I left feeling slightly disappointed. Anyway, here are some pictures from our exciting television debut.
Shortly before the impending date, we were told it was held in a mans basement. This disturbed us slightly. In fact, it is held in a mans garage, attached to this house, to be precise:

Looks quaint, doesn't it? Well, our fears were soon evaporated as we met the mans wife and family, and the five or so people who work on the show. Let me introduce you.

This is John Wardle. He had a cold. It was sad. Aside from that, he was a little fire ball of energy, and an excellent game-show host.
This is Camilla, Sara and Melissa enjoying some delicious Pizza before beginning "work". "Work" basically consists of kicking Brett's butt into the curb, but we'll discuss that shortly. The woman in the green is Johns wife, Michelle. She and I had a lot in common. She also gave me a great website to visit. Michelle, I thank you from the very bottom of my impatient heart!
This is Jeff. He works with Brett at RxAmerica, and he's the one who baited us for the show. he said when he started working on the show he immediately thought of us. I'm still not sure if that's flattering or not. Oh well, you decide. Jeff is a producer for the show. Here you see him concentrating everything in himself on the timer.

These are the girls. Awesome, funny, frisky and lively women. Melissa, Camilla and Kelly. I like her name.
Here I am. Perfect black-mail photo, as promised.

Camilla is trying to shoot me. Thankfully, she was all out of bullets.

I'm not sure what's going on here. I was just excited how well I did on the second round. That's me (another fine black-mail photo) pointing to my points on my plate.

Here's Brett with the ladies.

And here's Brett with Jeff and Sara "behind the camera's", as we Hollywood folk would say. Jeff is holding his precious bell. I won't delve too deeply into that, it's just disturbing.

Here is everyone doin' stuff in between doin' other stuff. It was so flipping hot in that little room with all the lights and cameras and bodies.

Here is John going over his questions for the next segment. Brett's in the background. I'm sure he was begging them to tell him the answers in advance. Had he any money, he would have bribed them. Sorry honey, this game is for those with brains of steel!

Brett. He's just cute.

Sara, she's cute too.

And here are the great goodies we got for being "good sports". Or in my case, for kicking some serious booty. Ok, so Brett got the same exact stuff. But I still won. HA! I had no idea I was so competative.

All in all, it was a lot of fun. We laughed a lot, and I beat Brett, so life is good. If anyone is interested in going on the show and having a great time and meeting really awesome people, let me know, and I'll get you their contact information.

For black-mail information, also contact me.
