calling all die hard JT fans

Last night a friend of mine forwarded me a casting notice that she knew I would DIE FOR. It read:

Shane Casting Call for JT Fans


They are casting THIS weekend so, if you too are a DIE HARD JT fan, or just want to have some fun, submit your photo and email pitch to the casting email above AND then post it on your blog (a longer version if you’d like) and link up in the comments below. Casting is THIS WEEKEND so get on it ladies (and gentlemen).

Here is my longer-than-one sentence email:

A friend of mine just sent me your JT Fan casting notice because I’m the biggest JT fan she knows. I’m a mom blogger in Southern California, and I tweet, blog, and talk about JT more than probably a married mom should. My husband knows I get a hall pass if JT comes a knockin’. My Twitter profile even mentions him.

And a pic of JT & Timbaland is on my FB profile pic

Facebook profile with justin Timberlake

And the first fact on my “About Me” page of my blog says that I love Justin Timberlake. Boom!

I can carry a tune (I was a contestant on Don’t Forget the Lyrics) and I take a hip hop dance class every week (here’s a YouTube vid – I’m the tall one with the gansta black beenie and the Flashdance legwarmers). 

I have several friends who love him *almost* as much as I do. In fact we frequently bicker on FB and Twitter about which one of us will marry him in our next lifetimes. 

If there is a cougar category on your casting list then I AM YOUR GURL.

I look forward to hearing from you! I might not sleep a wink until I do. No pressure.

I should’ve titled the email “Let Me Show You a Few Things” and then shown them my husband’s impersonation of “D in a Box”.  But it was late and I wasn’t thinking clearly.

Now, don’t delay, you only got 4 minutes to save the world with your badass submission.

    JT needs a cougar in his entourage and you’re the woman for the job! LoveStoned is my favorite all-time song EVER in the history of my music listening. I’ve had it as my ringtone, it’s on repeat on my iPhone, it never fails to put me in a good mood. Go represent for all of us, ahem, more mature JT fans!!

    I may not share your love of Justin but I can relate with my own love for Simon Le Bon of Duran Duran.

    Nice post!
