thanks brit.

so i went to my call back for antm and maybe i was like the shortest one there. seriously, it was crazy being around all people who were taller than me. all the girls were like 6 foot....and gorgeous!! they had flown in from all over the country. not only that, but everyone had some saga story about being raised by two lesbians, raped as a child, been homeless since age 15 and hadnt talked to their alcoholic father for over 12 years. it got to me and i thought.....hmmmm...shelly hawley made me cookies every day - that is weird, right? attention grabbing?? ok, i didnt use that, but i did make the first cut, (which was a 30 second interview and a cat walk). for the second round we were asked to be in our bathing suits and heels for another cat walk, but were required to say three adjectives about ourself before we began our walk (which was in front of all of the other competitors). i knew i wanted it to accurately portray me, but catchy....so rhyming was a necessity. i chose the following three words: 1. enthusiastic. 2. sarcastic. 3......

yes. i used the word, "bombastic." and maybe i did a ghetto black girl head maneuver along with it. and i know what you are thinking - she would. well, yes i would...and i did. you may recognize the word from the ever popular song "bombastic love" by britney spears. i thought that brit had just made it up! but i soon discovered its true dictionary.com meaning: ostentatiously lofty in style. YES!! so, thanks brit. you made my cat walk start with a bang! hopefully memorable enough for tyra!! fyi - we wont hear back until early may about casting....so dont ask.

this is my #1 favorite story. i was thinking "you would" right when you wrote that i would be thinking that. i feel like you were probably one of the few there that knew what an adjective was so you definitely won points there. please immediately listen to the shaggy song "mr. bombastic".
