I'm under the weather. For three weeks, I've had congestion and a cough I can't shake. Just got back from seeing my doctor -- he's not concerned. However, last night one of my coughs resulted in a "pop" under my rib cage, and now it hurts -- a lot -- every time I cough.

I'll audition after I shake this. --Bob

Bob, I dunno what the "pop" exactly connotes, but tell the doc. If they're still not concerned, & I don't say this lightly, see another doc.

I did tell the doc. It's a muscle strain. I hurts in the muscle, and only when I use the muscle. Manual pressure on the muscle when I cough (the primary time I use that muscle) helps a lot. --Bob

Could there only be one name on the audition list this summer?

If we follow tradition, there will be some newbies whose first post will be to announce getting the Happy Card or The Call.

But among those of us long-time BBs who have been sharing our experiences of that forlorn quest for the Hot Seat for nearly seventeen years...yeah, I can see that happening this season.

I had my audition tonight. I arrived right after the 7:00 session started but they were very nice in still letting me take the test after everyone else had finished. I got a video interview and should get a happy/sad email within a week.

Unfortunately I received a sad email today. It was the first time I got a video interview so at least I made it that far. I might try one more time before they leave LA.

I'm wondering if anyone knows of anyone who got the call during their 2nd year of eligibility.

I entered the pool last year for the taping sessions from June-August 2015; and am eligible to get the call for this year's tapings as well.

Anyone get the call in year two?

It's uncommon but we have had reports that it's happened. --Bob

Gets me thinking and wondering if I should audition again even though I'm in the pool to make sure they haven't forgotten me...

No video interview for me. Very low turnout, at least for the morning sessions in Brooklyn.
