Dear Diary:

I spent two hours in line yesterday for an open casting call for an HBO show to be an extra. I think it would be fun to screw around for a day and get paid…So I went, filled out a form, took a picture, and am supposed to wait for them to call me for the HBO show or for any of their other projects that need random ass people in the background.

I have friends who have done it and they say you just hang out, read books, walk around, talk to the people next to you, and then at the end, you get a paycheck enough for one night of boozing in NYC or groceries for a week. You do get treated like cattle, but is it that much different than being treated like monkeys? (You’d think they’d pay us in bananas rather than money based on the way they treated us in BigLaw.)
