If you are new to my blog, on Wednesdays I post about my experience in Hollywood as a former child/teen actress. If you want to start at the beginning of these posts go here. If you are old to my blog, I know I have been slacking on these posts. If you could send me some extra time in the mail I would be blogging more. But you know what they say, jogging before blogging. Can't do it all. But here's a new one!
Do any of you remember Teddy Ruxpin? It was cutting edge back in the 80s. And when anything is cutting edge . . . another product has to come out to try and compete. Key word is try. Reality is fail. That's what I participated in. A Teddy Ruxpin knock-off fail. Well, they just paid me to do some dorky poses and be on the box of Smarty Bear. Does anyone remember Smarty Bear? Besides the one guy who posted a video of a Smarty Bear in action but calls it Teddy Ruxpin. The answer is no. Unless your brother was the guy on the box with me. Funny thing is, I am speaking at a retreat for Calvary Baptist Church in Concord next month. And guess who is the woman who initially contacted me to see if I could speak at the retreat? Smarty Bear guy's sister. Magic. I think this Smarty Bear thing is really gonna catch fire after I bring it to the retreat. The retreat's in Half Moon Bay October 19-21 if you want to come. Details here. Bring your Teddy Ruxpin.
