Pitch Slam Results with Kristin Nelson

There aren't any. LOL...not yet anyway.

SEVENTY pitches came through and Kristin lost her email service. We probably blew it up, lol.

No, actually, she frantically emailed me saying that the email box she signed up with for the pitch slam went on the blink just before we sent the pitches through. Of course, we didn't know it and were steady sending them through.

I had to make the announcement to the group that she couldn't give feedback until tomorrow, then she came back online later tonight and told everyone she didn't expect so many and in order to give them her fullest attention, she was going to work on them over the week-end. I just feel so bad for her. She did say just before that if she requests a partial, then send it to so and so address, so this was an added bonus...some of us might get asked for partials...something we didn't count on!

So, we'll see how that goes. I do want to say that it was the neatest experience helping and receiving help in the pitch group that Kirsten Mortenson set up for us to hone our pitches. We were all working so good together. Even if I don't get a partial request, I hope one of the others in the group do. We were a team. It was just an incredible experience. Now that it's over, I feel like I did the day after Christmas as a kid. Kind of let down that it was over.

So, I plan on having more agents come in and doing it again. They are a great bunch of people and the way we worked together for a common goal and were all rooting for each other and it was so genuine, it was amazing.

Oh, I have to tell you something! At work tonight, someone told me that there were raccoons underneath a car outside so we all dashed out to see them. Omg...there were two baby raccoons just sitting under a car looking so afraid. They were so absolutely adorable! I ran inside and grabbed some food out of the trash can and flew out the door with it. I tossed a piece of bread to one and omg it was sooooooooooo adorable how he/she grabbed it with his/her little black paws and started eating it. I threw one to the other one and he/she did the same. ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE. But, the thing is, how did they get there? The woods isn't far away, but these were BABIES. I wanted to take them home, but you never know about rabies. Absolutely adorable. Anyway, that was the highlight of my night. I hope when I go in tomorrow that they haven't been squished as the busy highway is right out front.

Well, I hope to have some news about the pitch fest tomorrow. I'll let you know the results!
