I'm so nervous I could throw up right now...
Remember, my sister Kristin? (cute cabinet family sign girl)

Well, as we speak, she is in NYC, because she was chosen to be on:


No joke! Oh, wait, it gets better...

She has chosen me to be one of her lifelines for phone a friend. Yes, me and
Yes, I said the same thing: "What are you thinking??"

It's a special anniversary edition and Regis will be back (more on that here) and they'll be doing the old format where you have to put things in order the fastest to get on, so she may not make it, but she's a piano and cello player and has pretty quick little hands, so I won't be surprised if she does.
She's under strict instructions not to call me unless it's a question about Sonic, yard sales, hgtv, paint colors, having 5 kids, or it's something I could google very quickly. :)
She got a free three day trip to NYC with her husband though with all expenses paid, so that's worth it right there, and I shouldn't feel any pressure about potentially making her miss out on $25,000 or so, right??
They'll call me (Wed afternoon) to give me a heads up if she gets on, and then I have to stay by my land line and ship my kids to the neighbors lightning quick and get some really smart people over to my house, just in case.

Oh man, could y'all be on an instant chat or something?? I wish!
I'll let you know what happens...
anyone have any tips for me??

I know you're still laughing that she chose me :)
Off to practice googling random trivia questions...

  3. WOW! WOW!
    So tell all your friends, have them be on google at the same time andorganize a few friends to be with you so atleast 3 cell phones can be open! The more you have on goole to search the better but they need to reach you by pphone quickly. Good luck!

  4. I'm so excited for you BOTH! Good Luck to your sis and to you as well! Have google.com and ask.com up... that's probably the best advice I can give you. Then type as fast as you can if you can't find the answer. Wikipedia {TYPICALLY} has legit answers and is usually one of the first responses to come up on ask.com so you can always look there too!

    Sending you both all the luck in the world!!!

    And then take it from there. Yep, that's all the advice I've got.

  38. Oh cool for her and you!! She wouldn't have picked you if she didn't think you could do it!! Be strong, be brave and take deep breaths - in through your nose - out through your mouth - sort of like childbirth and you've done that what, 5 times - this is nothing - easy peasy!!

    ReplyDelete

  46. Have several friends over with laptops and have everybody type in the 3 or 4 basic words. I hope she makes.it--how fun.

    I am starting a NEW Mr. Linky party. It will begin on Aug 10th so everyone will have a week and a half to think about their first post. I have a poll up for votes on which button should be the new button. The "party" is called The Knock Off Knock Out-where THRIFTY meets creative sensation. Help me out by voting and its the last week for the July GIVE-A-Way.
