Help! Top 50 will be announced on Monday! Need more views/comments!

In case you haven't heard...

Dear friends, family, co-workers, and business acquaintances:

It's that time again when I'm competing in an online contest for a job and need your support! All joking aside, I am currently competing for the Tourism Queensland "Best Job in the World" as Island Caretaker. The Island Caretaker gets to blog and produce video segments on his/her adventures living in the islands of the Great Barrier Reef! The position is for 6 months beginning July 1st, 2009.

Basically, as we speak, the lovely folks in Australia are sorting through over 20,000 videos to pick their top 50 candidates...the competition is HUGE!

So in the meantime, while they're deciding their top 50, I am asking for you to watch, comment, rate, share, post, repost, blog, embed, etc my video so it will rise to the top and significantly increase my chances of making it to the next round!!!

Voting will begin once the 50 have been chosen (which is in 7 days). From the top 50, the panel will pick 11 finalists - 10 based on qualifications, 1 based on having the most views (which they're calling the "wild card"). I feel that I have all the qualifications to be the Island Caretaker considering my background and work experience online!!! I've created a 3 step process for you to follow below...


3 Easy Steps ;)

1) WATCH the video on the contest website: *very important you watch here first!
2) RATE the video on the contest website...then,
3) Click through to watch the video on YouTube (if you have a problem clicking through, here is the site: watch, rate, and comment!

Now, if you really want to go the extra mile, you can forward this email out to your friends, family and ask them to do the same. Then, you can post the video, links to the video, embed the video on your Facebook, Myspace, blogs, Twitter accounts, etc. This is an amazing opportunity and I really do appreciate you taking the time to support my career!!! The more people who watch and participate, the better my chances are of having THE BEST JOB IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AGAIN, if I make the top 50, there will be more rating, commenting, and this time - VOTING. So, hopefully you'll be hearing from me again very soon with super good news!

Please feel free to email me with any questions. Again, thank you for your time and consideration!

Lots of LOVE and with sincere GRATITUDE,

Leah D'Emilio

My day just got better...

Today has been a great day - my video is doing well in the best job in the world competition, I got a tie dyed towel (see previous post), and then I was reminded why I love living in Los Angeles...

This man was just following the yellow brick road to the CVS in Santa Monica, asking those around him for a heart...some people were scared, some people were amused, I took a picture:

The Tin real life...searching for his CVS...

How could my day get any better?

Tie Dye & Nutella

A special thanks is in order to JCA who was thoughtful enough to send a handmade, limited edition tie dye towel and an inspirational photo that has convinced me to run out and buy a tub of nutella - hey, it is Fat Tuesday today, anyway...thanks, John :)

Here's a big thumbs up to you!

Proper Attire Condoms

Have you ever thought to yourself, "Gosh, I wish these condom packages were more...stylish?" Well, now you can have designer, yes designer, condoms thanks to Alexander Wang (no pun intended) and Planned Parenthood. Get more 411 on these sexy, chic rubbers here.

If I may share my personal opinion on this...if you're too embarrassed to buy or carry condoms because the packaging is not stylish enough, maybe you should not be sexually active...I can just hear the inner-monologue now: "You know, I should get some, but...they just don't match my dress tonight, so f*ck it. I wouldn't be caught dead with a gray Durex in my Gucci bag."

Maybe that's what happened to Alfie & Chantelle over in the UK?

Thoughts? Share them here on The Dealio.

South Park Character Creator

Rybot and I have been catching up on a lot of South Park recently, so we decided to create our own characters. The save button doesn't work on the site, so you have to take a screen shot and crop in Paint or Photoshop. Kind of a pain in the ass, but the quality on this site is better than the others we tried. Here's what Rybot and I would look like if we were on the show:

And here we are together at the bus stop!
