I am a little nervous

I just found out this afternoon that I am 1 of the 5 finalists in a little cooking contest. I don't ever watch tv, but the other day, I happened to flip it on and saw on studio5 that they were having a contest in connection with Pier 49 pizza for the best, creative pizza recipe. I debated if I should enter the Greek Pizza I invented for Lar's birthday and realized the deadline was just a few days away. I decided not to enter, but then thought- what the heck, why not?
So I sent off my recipe and today received a call telling me to show up on Thurs. at 8 am at the Pier 49 Pizza place for a cook-off. I have to bring my sauce and toppings ready to go and then the judges will pick a winner. Studio5 cameras will be in the house and the winner will appear on their show next week. Pier 49 will also start serving the winning pizza on their menu.
I am pretty nervous. Wish me luck!
