E is for Extra

How does the saying go? Everyone gets their 15-minutes of fame?

Well... for me that happened when I was 16. That is when a movie called Boy Rents Girl aka Can't Buy Me Love was filmed at my high school and I got to be an extra. It was all so very exciting. I don't think I have ever had so much fun.

When I watch the movie I don't even pay attention to the story, because I am too busy looking at everyone and reminiscing. It's just like a living yearbook. All of us forever stuck in a moment of time.

  1. Wow! I would have loved for that to happen at my school :0) What a brilliant document of your youth to have!

  2. @Sarah Holmes - It was pretty exciting. Some of us even knew ahead of time and got to audition for some of the smaller parts.

    It's neat to see where the actors have ended up too. Who would have thought that Patrick Dempsey would have become so popular or so cute! :-)

  3. Sounds like a very cool experience - your 15 minutes of fame. Something you'll remember forever.

  4. I saw you!!! Zack always points you out in this movie! He gets so excited about it.

  5. How awesome is that!!! OMG I would love to be an extra in a movie! :)

  6. Wow, how lucky to have this to remind you of high school! :)

  7. How cool is that, having a movie filmed at your high school and being one of the extras? As high school memorabilia goes, this is so much more fun than a yearbook!

    Thanks for visiting my blog, and good luck with the challenge. ;)

  8. @Dan Miller - It was a great experience. I definitely will remember it forever. :-)

    @Juli - I will forever be stuck in the 80's! Short hair and all. LOL!

    @TheWineTwins - It was a lot of fun. A lot of sitting around doing nothing but still a lot of fun.

    @Naomi Mitchell - I do feel lucky. I love that I have this to remember.

    @Kern Windwraith - You are right! It is much more fun than a yearbook. :-)

    @Erika Jean - I am super duper famous! ;-)
