A HUGE Birthday Present. As most of you know, yesterday I was a contestant in Wheel of Fortune and today is my birthday. Well, I got a big birthday present. I'm not going to go through the whole process of taping today, which was one of the best experiences in my life, but I'll give you the highlights. Oh, and I'm going to let you know how I did since you'll find out in a month anyway.

I was there at 10am and spent the majority of the day getting advice and rehearsing for the actual show. All of the people were really nice and the staff was twice as nice. I was on the 5th show so I got to sit and watch everyone else play. I didn't go on until about 8:30pm and I was a little nervous by then, but more excited than anything. I got on stage and played the game, but I won't tell you the puzzle rundown b/c I have to keep some suspense. When it was all said and done, I won $15,950. All I could think was "Holy f@*#ing s#!t!" It was nuts. The last thing to note is that Vanna is pretty boring and Pat is a little weird.

All in all, it was crazy. Happy birthday to me!
