So far we have 36/46 who have their topics and should be able to start working.
There are definitely some combinations of topic and contestant that have me excited because I *think* I know where they are going to go, and it's going to be really good. And of course some where I went "Well, it will be interesting..." :)
The litany against fear mentions in yesterday's Green Room reminded me that in high school I was really into the Dune books. Well, Frank Herbert in general, but I definitely loved them. I could have, at that point, recited the litany.
I *know* this is true (although I can't recall most of it these days) because I have a distinct memory of Grad Night for my high school, which was at the Magic Kingdom.
I am *terrified* of roller coasters. But there was a girl that I *really* liked (in retrospect it's pretty obvious she liked me as well - we literally ate lunch together every day and spent most of our time together. I later learned that she spent Prom Night home crying because I didn't ask her! I hadn't even considered going, much less figured out who I thought would say "yes" to be my date. But I digress). There was a girl I liked, and she wanted to ride Space Mountain. She wanted to ride it *with me*.
So I did.
I spent the entire ride with my eyes closed quietly reciting the Litany Against Fear.
It seemed to help.
