On Todd Selby's twitter yesterday, he tweeted that he was doing a casting call for the next Cole Haan ad campaign, which he is shooting. I immediately thought of my friend Olivia and her boyfriend, Robin. They are an attractive, talented young couple and would be perfect for this sort of thing. I emailed Todd Selby's assistant to give her the heads up about them. As she and I wrote back and forth throughout the day and part of this afternoon, I decided to go out on a limb and submit a photo of myself and Kai, hoping that his cuteness might rub off on me, and that by playing the hip nanny card, I might be more appealing. She wrote me back and said "they" (she and Todd?!) thought I was adorable - but sadly (so sadly) upon discovering that I live in Seattle, it wouldn't be possible as they need New Yorkers. Shoot! Oh well, I was close to being in The Selby's next photoshoot and that's good enough for me.
While speaking of The Selby, I received his book in the mail yesterday. I looked through it twice last night and bookmarked some of my favorites. I will probably pour over it more this evening.
