How could I resist? So, I applied.
Then in June, I got an email from The Sleek Geeks Team inviting me to be a member of the audience
as well as a map to the venue
I booked 3 tickets, one for me, one for Rigo and one for Bill.
Sunday June 10 arrived.
Bill was ready but Rigo didn't want to go - oh well his loss.
We checked the FAQ to make sure we knew what to expect
WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW?
Filming will take around 2 - 3 hours. Due to the nature of the show there will be different set ups for
experiments and also different camera angles this will result in audiences moving and standing at times.
Seating is provided but will not be constant.
We recommend that children attending are 12 years and over and are happy to stand and move around
for 3 hours. We will need silence when filming so please keep that in mind when deciding whether to
bring along children.
We will provide light refreshments, tea, coffee and water.
Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear ie: Jumpers and covered in shoes.
There will be some audience participation so please come prepared to have a good time and join in.
We headed down, saw the filming and got involved in some audience participation. It was a lot of fun.
Of course I tweeted the experience :
At the end of the filming, the folks told us that the show would air in October.
October came and went and no sign of the show - and then it kind of slipped my mind
This morning I woke up to many many emails and tweets from my friends in Australia.
The Sleek Geeks episode had aired on the ABC this week finally. People had seen me on the telly!
We were part of the audience who got to be part of the little experiment with Australian memory champion Simon Orton

So, to all the folks who saw me and sent me a message - thank you for remembering me.
