Abduction Movie Extras

I am off this week burning some vacation time and was wondering if I should try to be a movie extra for the upcoming movie "Abduction", starring Twilight heart throb Taylor Lautner. A Facebook page has been set up for people wanting to be Abduction Extras.

It has been funny reading some of the comments on the Facebook Abduction Extras page. Of course, the majority of people who comment are under 18 and female. I read there are problems hiring anyone under 18: labor laws, parental permission, work permits, etc. It has been funny reading the comments that have been posted on the Facebook Abduction Extras page. Most people do not read the casting requirements and the instructions on how to be considered for a part as an extra. Over 18 means over 18, adult male part means adult male part, etc. has an article on what to expect if you are selected as a movie extra. The Pittsburgh Film Office has info on local casting requirements in the area. I can not decide if this is something I want to pursue or not, so I have not sent them my contact info and physical dimensions.

Water Woes

I usually do my laundry in the evening, but today I decided to do it in the morning. After my load of white clothes was done, I noticed that my tap water was brown. Sometimes, after a heavy rain, my public tap water will become discolored. It is past 10PM now, and there is still a trace of brown in the cold water. However, the hot water from my water tank is browner than the cold water. I did not have anything really nice in the laundry, but I am still upset. Am I wrong to assume that the water company can handle a little rain?
