cold as ice...

ok, confession time. i stopped watching 'the hour' two months ago. i always wondering what would make me stop watching it. i mean if brooke hogan didn't, what would? apparently the answer is three roman polanski jokes. i wasn't even sure i wanted to go to a taping. so how do i feel now? stay tuned.

but first...

randomness from two days of attending 'the hour' in vancouver.

1. yes, i went to the hour with mel. i don't know how this is possible but she is even nicer in person than online. sadly, i could not wear fancy boots. so i wore red and black starred creepers instead. also, when meeting someone for the first time, bring gifts. mel and i exchanged xmas cds. she also brought chocolate. there was no way i was not going to like her after that. (ps.. get a passport lady!)

2. i need to buy a clown mask. of course, it will have to live in the farthest corner of my basement.

3. the tim hortons on dunsmuir, near the railway club serves the coldest ice caps i have ever had. i felt like my whole esophagus was frozen. (i can not believe i spelled that right on the first try). oh, and cream cheese and ice caps are not a good taste sensation.

4. just when i think it is not possible to love rick mercer anymore, i learn something new and even better about him. and my heart grows like the grinch with more love for him.

5. i am a bigger techie geek than i thought i was. i spent most of the taping watching and listening to the production crew. on an additional note, i really miss using my slr. i feel like i've been cheating on it with my digital.

6. certain bc "stars" are even bigger assholes than i thought.

7. brett butt is really really funny.

8. i am obsessed with taking photos of pancakes.

9. certain people are freakishly smart. so much so i may have to change my blogger id. i am thinking of perhaps "pancakes".

10. do not listen to south park songs when listening to your ipod alone in crowded streets. because you will laugh out loud and everyone will know you are a freak

11. overheard in the lineup. "are you checking your coat?" "no, i have low blood sugar". what does this mean?

12. sweltering tv studio + downpouring rain + no umbrella + no hoodie = one potentially sick clown.

and now the answer... seeing the show live, especially on tuesday made me think i might just give it another shot and catch up on a few episodes that are on my pvr. especially because i think there's a steve earle interview in there somewhere.

happy hump day everyone!

I've never seen this show. Maybe I should watch t.v. once in a while... ;-(

don't do it! ha ha!

Allison said...

i am sadden by the lack of photos. pfft. even a pancake would have been something. geez ;)

however, glad you had a good time. mel is quite possibly the nicest person, i always enjoy our coffee meet ups when i'm in town.

i too am perplexed with number 11 on your list...hmmm.

allison - i tried taking a very special picture just for you, but it didn't turn out.

I am so jelaous of you and Mel that you got to meet each other's fabulous selves!

Your creepers look pretty fabulous - the boots may just have been overkill. Unless they were made of sugar and then you wouldn't want to check them, just in case you had to eat them, much like a coat.

668 aka neighbour of the beast said...

i would be jealous too if i was not part of the meeting! i am thinking you are next lady!

that boot comment is too funny!

Garsh, thanks buddy! You're most awesome! I will be getting a passport soon. I so want to indulge in a little (or a lot) of divine impulse spending with you *G*

Thanks again for coming with me. I had a great time! The cameras were quite something to watch weren't they? :O)

america here we come! lol.

thanks for having me! and they were awfully bright and shiny...

Excellent meet up by the sounds of it even if George is no longer your full time boyfriend. You can free up the PVR space and just watch the interviews online.

668 aka neighbour of the beast said...

i never thought of that dale. and then i wouldn't have to watch any of the lame jokes. or at least not all of them. :)

Sounds like a lot of fun! I haven't watch The Hour recently, but going to a taping is so much fun that I would consider going if they come to Montreal.

Meeting bloggers is nice, I met Toccata this summer and I really enjoyed it.

that must have been fun!
