Two- There were two Barenaked Ladies on the plane with us. (In case you don't know that band, they are neither naked, nor ladies.) I didn't say hi. I'm holding off my tradition of making a total fool of myself in front of famous people until, well, tonight possibly...
# OF TIMES WE'VE BEEN ASKED IF WE'RE IN TOWN FOR THE JUNOS:
# OF TIMES WE'VE BEEN ASKED IF WE'RE PERFORMING:
One. By the dude at the hotel desk who had a crazy waxed mustache.
Note: We get asked every time we do this thing. It makes me laugh. They're trying to figure out if we're somebody they should make a Big Deal out of.
# OF STRANGE ASIAN FOODS WE'VE EATEN SINCE GETTING HERE:
Lost count. It was all very tasty but I have only a vague idea of what it was and I'm feeling very adventurous about the whole thing!
# OF STORES OPEN AT 9 AM:
None. This town is loooow key, man. Cooool.
# OF EMAILS JETHRO HAS GOTTEN ON HIS iGADGET FROM OUR DAUGHTER "TRIBBLE"
Three. She found out I went shoe shopping here without her.
COLOUR OF MY NEW SHOES:
Hot pink, babeeeee!
COLOUR OF WEST COAST SKY:
Grey, silver, white and grey.
COLOUR OF THE GRASS:
It's green! I forgot that grass is supposed to be green because at home in Ontario it's slimy brown, accented by crusty brown dirty snowbanks. The trees are budding here! Wow.
# OF TIMES I'VE TALKED TO MY AWESOME BLOGBUDDY DILLING:
Three? Oh my gosh, she even sounds cool! I can't wait to meet her!!!!
Now... off to the hand-shakin', free-beer-drinkin, or-durve eatin' Juno welcome reception! Later!
