I wore, for the first time ever, 3 or 3 1/2 inch heels that weren’t huge and clunky, but nice and slender for the WHOLE day. As in from 7:30 this morning until 8:00 tonight without falling and with only minimal hurting of the feet. A personal triumph!Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
I had a really good day today. I mean really good. Like I actually felt like myself and everything.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
Brian and I went to see Urinetown tonight and it was FANTASTIC!!!
It was so hilarious that I’m still laughing and smiling and I loved the randomness of it all! I always enjoy witty lines and extremely off the wall, randomness in musicals and this one is right up there. It was so fun, but had a real political and social message at its core — with a rebellion and everything.
The cast was stellar, especially the lead narrators!
It’s being put on right now by Georgetown Globe Productions, who always put on high-quality shows. I worked with them as a co-producer on City of Angels, another of my favourites a couple of years ago.
If there are any tickets left, I highly recommend going to see it!Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 1 so far )
I got home from class in time to turn on the news and see that there was a shooting in the exact place that I had just been and, that if we hadn’t been let out an hour early, I likely would have been close to where the shooting occurred. The last time this happened was when the girl was taken hostage at Union Station and I was actually in the station, but went out the side door and didn’t know it was taking place until I got to work.
So, I am left to wonder, what does one do when you actually do end up in the exact place at the exact time? How are you supposed to react? Hit the ground like in the movies?
A couple of years ago a friend and I were walking down Front St on our lunch and there was the loud sound of gunshots. We did not hit the ground. We looked at each other in disbelief because, well, that doesn’t happen in Toronto, especially in the middle of the day, right?
Again the shots.
Again, no reaction.
I look up the street to see a bank surrounded by police cars.
As we kept walking closer (because, of course there must be a logical explanation for this) I ask:
“Do you think it’s a film shoot?”
“But I don’t see any film trucks…”
My disbelief started to turn to slight anxiousness and a twinge of fear.
We continued to walk to the next block, turned and there, right in front of us…
Was an entire street full of white vans from the film company.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
I had a dream last night that I finally went and had the ocular implant surgery done and, instead of inserting a lense, they replaced my eyeballs. Even though I could finally see perfectly, I was so upset because I have always loved the colour of my eyes and my nice hazel blue eyes with the gold circle around the pupil had been replaced with purplish-blackish eyes. Is this an indicator that I shouldn’t get the surgery?Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )

I forgot to mention that last night at the dinner I ran into a friend from Queen’s and found out that he’s working on The Smart Woman Survial Guide, which I coincidentally watched for the first time yesterday morning and loved! Now, I’m not sure what it is exactly that he’s doing on the show, but if you know Sean and you watch this show, it just makes sense that this is what he’s doing right now. I loved the show — very witty, funny and a bit random. A perfect combination. Have you already seen an episode? Do you like it? Check it out and come back to say what you think about it.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
I just got home from volunteering at the John Orr Dinner, a Queen’s Alumni event. I volunteered last year too and my favourite part both times was seeing the Queen’s Bands again. I don’t know, there’s just something about those bands that remind me of the community I had at Queen’s and then, when I look around the room, I know that everyone in there has had such a similar and positive experience from that University and I love it. I know, I know, I’m a Queen’s snob through and through and you know what? I love it!
The event went well, though I only knew about 20 people, it was nice to catch up with them. I couldn’t handle the young ones and their drunkenness — I suppose I’m old now (though they actually are getting younger!). The class of ’10 was present (scary!).
The weekend also kicked off with Brian and I standing in line for a lottery to see Wicked. A cool idea, though if you don’t get tickets it’s just a waste of an evening. It was cool to be a part of it, even though we didn’t win. We then had a mediocre to poor dinner at Lone Star.
After a weekend of standing, tonight in heels, my feel are killing me as is my head so I’m going to put the deliriousness that is me to bed. Good night!Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 1 so far )
