: I'll try and keep it in a nutshell, but the beauty's in the details. My friend and I had sent in our pictures the day after Kevin announced to do so. We never got a call back and we were not happy about that at all. So since I already took the day off work, we decided to go down anyway and hope to spot someone from the film. So we went to the deli-bakery next door to the El Rey and sat at a table by the window to watch who went in to the theater. Not even 10 minutes into my fruit salad and ice blended mocha, we saw Jay himself walking past our window and down the street. So we moved and sat outside to catch him on his way back and hopefully get a picture. He doesn't come back. But an hour or so later, we spy Kevin come out of the theater. We run over and get a few pictures. I declared that even if we went home then, I'd be happy. But we didn't. We decided to try and talk to people about getting in as extras. Everyone said they were full. Then we met this rad dude in production who shall remain nameless so he doesn't get in trouble. He suggested we sneak in the line when the extras come in. So we did. All the people we had asked just smiled as we entered. Damn the man! I wanted in! So in we went and stayed most of the day. We saw Joey Adams, Brian O'Halloran, Will Ferrell, Shannon Elizabeth, the cutest orangutan I've ever seen, Kevin's wife Jennifer, Walt Flanagan and many other regulars. Before we left, we managed to get that picture of Jay we wanted. And even though on my windshield sat an $85 parking ticket, I didn't give a shit. Because I had a fan's cream dream of a day.
