The Price Is Wrong, Bitch!

— by Caroline on Crack

Bob Barker back in the day

I asked my best friend from SF where she wants to go when she visits me next month, if there are any places on my site that she wanted to see, and she said, “OH! I want to see The Price Is Right!” ::Pause:: Me: “You’re kidding, right?” Her: “No, I really wanna see it.” Me: “What?! You’re not an old lady!” But after much begging and pleading on my part to not go, I relented. She IS my best friend after all and isn’t that what friends do for each other? Age prematurely?

When I first moved to L.A. I did the whole studio audience thing. I’ve seen The Arsenio Hall Show and Politically Incorrect. You do it when you’re a newbie because you figure that’s what this town is about and you’re just curious. But after many years of living here, I can say that I’m over it. I don’t want to be an extra and I don’t want to be a member of a live studio audience. To me that’s just too many hours of having to force laughter to not get paid.

But my bff, a fan of the show since before Bob Barker went gray, wants to see TPIR so that’s what we’ll do. And here’s the information for you silly people who want to participate in a taping or who have out-of-town guests who want to as well.

Tape dates:

October: 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 11, 12, 13, 24, 25, 26, 27, 31
November: 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9, 10, 14, 15, 16, 17, 28, 29, 30
December 2005: 1, 5, 6, 7, 8

And you can get your free tickets one of three ways: online, writing in your request for tickets (which you have to do 2 weeks prior) or going to the ticket booth at the CBS Studios on Fairfax and Beverly.

That’s where I’ll be one tape day in October. ::sigh:: Anyone wanna come with?

I really hope they don’t call me to come on down. I don’t know what macaroni or dishwashers are going for nowadays. Blah!
