Day of Days Contest

Ok, so I am an admitted dork...I absolutely love the soap, "Days of Our Lives" and have been watching it since I was about five years old.  I got hooked because of my mother.  My grandmother watched, too. 

Throughout grade school and into high school I watched.  When we got a VCR that was a huge deal because it meant I wouldn't miss an episode.  When I went off to college, I still tried to keep up and would watch between classes when I could.  At the time, we didn't have cable in our dorm rooms so I only could watch it live once in a while.

And now being in my 30's, I have my DVR to keep me entertained.  Although currently being unemployed, it is easy enough to watch during the day during the normal 1:00 pm time slot, I find it so much more enjoyable when I skip a day that way I don't have to endure the annoying commercials and can jump right into the story.  I have gone to a charity event last year to even meet some of the cast and almost had a heart attack when I got to actually get their autographs and take pictures and hug them!  I follow most of the cast on you see I am quite obsessed, yes?

Well, so much so that I recently entered the Bonnie Hunt Show's "Day of Days" contest.  I entered last year and was super bummed that I didn't at least get an honorable mention or something.  The object of the contest last year was just to write something saying why you were DOOL's biggest fan.  And it had to be in a certain amount of words (100? I can't remember) or less.  I wrote a poem, and I thought it was quite good.  Oh well.  Bonnie's staff obviously didn't.  The gal that won the prize I am sure was deserving, but all I honestly remember was that she named one of her daughters Kayla (after a character on the show).

But that hasn't deterred me from my goal this year.  This year's contest was to submit a 2 minute (or less) video explaining again why you were the biggest fan and also some other tidbits such as humor and pretend-interviewing one of the cast members, etc...I am glad that this contest will allow those like myself with some creativity in their bones to enter and be noticed! I submitted my entry last night.  I did many video takes for my sacred entry.  The good thing this year is that they will have the top 3 go to her show.  Just to meet Ms. Hunt would be cool!  I hope I win; wish me luck!

I will find out next be continued :-)
