Casting call offers reality check for would-be reporter
his is the first and only direct quotation I got from my casting agent, Lewis, when I auditioned for MTV's The Real World last Saturday in Tucson. From what I can tell, his remark was not so much directed at the sight of me as I sat there at the table. Rather, it was my voice recorder with the big red light on that seemed to be a sore spot.

Circus freak fails, weirdos win out
I always wanted to run away with the circus. The oddity of it all amazed and enticed me. It was the exact opposite of everything I feared and loathed about the adult world: 9-5ers drowning in a sea of memos and data and deadlines, oh my!
