I Booked A Commercial!

21 May

I’m going to be the new Mom-face of Torani Flavored Syrups. Y’know… that stuff they put in your pumpkin hazelnut mochaccino to make it taste all yummersons.

We are shooting this week in The Bay Area (My favorite place to eat ice cream at Bi-Rite, croque monsieurs and lemon bars at Tartine, and to see Piper at her apartment. (*I already know Piper will be out of town, so I’m looking at you, salted caramel ice cream.)

For the audition, I had to mix up some Shirley Temples for my “kids” – who were imaginary on all accounts, then add a lil vodka to my own. I guess I’m a natural with the vodka… nailed iiiiiit.

My sister thinks the ad should be like this (“We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns…and syrup.”):

My roommate thinks the ad could be like this (“Psshhhht — Trust me, I’m a professional.”):

I’m super excited for the work, the paycheck, and the traveling! This comes at a time when I’m down to the spare change in my checking account (- thanks to my spindly savings account which filled in on an overdraft).


Thankfully, I have friends and a boyfriend who have gifted me a few meals here and there when things are tight. Hopefully I can do the same for them in return, very soon.

At least we can all get hopped up on syrup.
