Nope, I made it right on time and in even better news, today was Day 2 of 60+ degree weather. After months of layers and shivering, the first few coatless days are as exciting as birthday presents!
Meanwhile at church, I was surprised to receive a shout-out in the bulletin and in the announcements. The support I’ve received throughout this Best Job experience has been beyond humbling. If only everyone could feel this loved all the time!
While I explained voting procedures to members of the congregation, La La La Lauren filmed cameos for some vlog entries. (Watch for it later this week!) After, we hit up fave brunch spot Hi Life for our traditional post-church download/catch-up.
BAA: OMG this cinnamon toast is to die for!
LLLL: Ange, it’s bread with cinnamon and sugar on it. You can make it at your house.
Poor Lauren. Today’s brunch convo went like this: Australia. Me. Best Job in the World. Morning show blitz. Me. Vlogs, blogs and Tweets. My hair. 500-word essay. Me. Me. Me. (I promise to never talk about myself again after all this is said and done!)
LLLL: You look like a zombie. Maybe you need to go home and nap.
BAA: I look like a zombie? (LLLL nods) I look like a zombie. I look like a zombie!
LLLL: Go to sleep!
I figured since there was no way I had enough energy for trampoline class, I would burn a few cinnamon toast calories walking the 40 blocks home. It was a great idea in theory, but Pinkberry, that seductive temptress, wooed me before I could get home. I ordered regular/pomegranate swirled with granola, strawberries and white chocolate shavings – heaven in a paper cup. I could eat it every day.
Per Dr. Lauren’s orders, I immediately snuggled up in my bed and snoozed hard for about three hours. Once I pulled myself out of my mini-coma, I immediately began writing blogs, editing video footage from the weekend and jamming out to my Karaoke playlist on iTunes. Oh! And I had an interview with a wonderful journalist from Herald de Paris. It was really the first time I’ve been able to share exactly why I think Tourism Queensland should pick me and why I think I’d be a compelling island caretaker… so stay tuned!
Monday marks one week of absolute fantastic madness since the Best Job announcement. The countdown continues! Hasn’t it been wild so far? I hope you’ll stick with me for the next couple of weeks until we find out the Top 11, dun dun dun!
