I like to refer to the hours of 5-7:30pm each weekday night as the dead-zone. As if you might as well be dead instead of answering the phone - we get so many telemarketers calling during these hours it's crazy. Ferda has officially given up and will not answer the phone around this dead-zone because of the sheer annoyance. However - I'm still hopeful it'll be an important call so I always pick it up.
So last night, I made my usual error of picking up the phone around 6:30; of course - telemarketer - however: this one had a twist...
It was a woman who claimed to be a producer for the upcoming Canadian Idol show. And she asked me if I knew a Ryan [last name removed]. Anyway, she asked how I knew him, general questions about him, and specifically about his musical talents. Of course - I told her he's the worst singer ever... NOT.
No, just kidding, I told her that Ryan is a great singer, completely versatile is music style, and that he's cool like a cucumber under pressure. I gave her all the examples of him singing: weddings, at his work talent show, etc.
Well Ryan, congrats on your progress so far through the selection committee. You never told me you were going for it, but no worries. Good luck with the rest of the competition! We all really hope you make it.
