    Idol dreams crushed! Audition dates finally released

    I thought they were going to do San Diego...

    The only audition near California is:

    San Francisco, California

    Thursday, August 18, 2005
    Cow Palace
    2600 Geneva Avenue
    San Francisco, CA 94014
    LINE UP: LINE BEGINS IN FRONT OF THE MAIN DOORS.
    NO ONE WILL BE ALLOWED TO LINE UP UNTIL 6:00AM ON AUGUST 17, 2005.
    WE WILL PASS OUT WRISTBANDS ON THAT DAY.
    ACTUAL AUDITIONS BEGIN ON AUGUST 18.
    ALL BAGS SUBJECT TO SEARCH.
    EVENT IS RAIN OR SHINE.
    PARKING IS FREE BUT NOT AVAILABLE UNTIL AUGUST 17.


    Thursday? THIS Thursday? So much for my chance to go, I have to work I really planned on auditioning too.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Re: Idol dreams crushed! Audition dates finally released

    Question of the day: How do you tell your boss you'd like to suddenly take the next two days off (unpaid days, since you've been in your job less than two months and have accrued NO vacation) to go audition for American Idol on the minute chance that someone might think you're good enough to audition for the "judges", let alone actually make the next round?

    How do you explain that you, a seemingly-rational 28 year old professional, are nearly in tears at not taking this VERY MINUTE chance?

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    I would ask- what do you have to lose? If they say no, then no biggie. You aren't going to get fired for asking.

    Yes, I would just ask. The worse they can say is no. If they by chance say yes, then WOO you're on your way. Course you could do the "call in sick" but if he by chance sees your audition on AI this fall...

    If you are able to go, Break a Leg. If you're not, then

    I say go for it. There is nothing to lose by asking. THis is something you have been talking about doing for a while now. At the very least, if he does give you the time off? Plus, if you were going to go do it, you would need to do it soon so you can head up there.

    Go Morrigoon!
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

    Re: Idol dreams crushed! Audition dates finally released

    Since I'd have to be in san francisco by 8am tomorrow, I'd have to call him now, on his cell phone since he's out of town.

    I don't know that there's nothing to lose, actually. I'm still new at this job, and it's SUCH a long shot that my effort and gas money would be worth it... I don't know that I could possibly justify doing it when I could be eliminated immediately, and possibly not even get to audition at all.

    And I couldn't go run off to San Francisco without telling my bf (since I live with him). And I really don't know if he'd support me or not in this since it's so irrational.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Morrigoon - Go for it - Never leave your self with regrets - you'll kick yourself wondering what if.
    Could you propose working some extra days or extra hours to make up the time. That might make it more appealing to your boss.

    Everyone is allowed some irratioanlity in their lives. This is irrationality with a dream attached to it. The Boy will have to understand that you want to do this for yourself. If you don't take the chance, you will regret it.

    Do this for yourself. You will be glad that you tried.

    Edited to add: If you make it to the next round, you would have an excellent interest story.
