The Real World holds an open casting call in Fort Collins

Buy a red car and find someone young and spry to liven up your life. That's what most people would do when staring down the precipice of a life crisis.

I applied for The Real World online.

Last Tuesday I got an e-mail telling me that I was a very important person -- or at least invited to the The Real World's open casting call yesterday in Fort Collins for the 27th season, which will be shot in a yet undisclosed city, as a "VIP." I tweeted about it and gleefully told strangers at a bar. But when I showed up at the auditions at the Fort Collins Brewery yesterday, the friend I'd dragged along screamed, "These are all the people I wanted to get away from after high school."
