Em spotted a commercial on Thursday alerting us that The Amazing Race
was calling for families of four, so we gave the weekend over to making
our 3-minute audition tape. California's spring weather cooperated fully,
giving us the chance to tape scenes not only in San Francisco, but also in
locales that might have been China, Italy and the Swiss Alps. We even managed
to squeeze in a Sunday night barbecue dinner with Sue, Joe and the cousins,
and that night at 10pm, we were still working our way home from skiing,
Jen driving while I edited video on the iBook in the passenger seat.
By Tuesday morning we had the whole
thing edited down to 2:59 minutes, ready to be FedEx'd off to LA.
