So I had to go to dressew today for work. I didn't want to. I tried to come up with other places to go. Not that it is a bad place to go or anything - just this time of year it is CRAZY busy with people getting halloween costumes. The kind of people who have never turned on a sewing machine but decided this year they can make their kids super diffficult detailed costume. BUT they can't even read the back fo the pattern to figure out how much fabric to buy.... let alone what kind of fabric and need to be walked through every step by one of the two people available to cut fabric. And all that and then they find out dressew doesn't take debit or credit so they have to leave to get money anyways. I could go on. I'll stop though.
All I needed was 2 meters of elastic. You can see why I didn't want to go.
But I went and got my elastic. As I was leaving I ran to catch the walk light at the corner. I see this woman. She is waddling and wearing ALOT of clothes. It was cool here today but not hooded parka, scarf and winter boots cold. Just puffy vest cold. She also had big sunglasses on. Now I know from living in L.A. big sunglasses mean your famous (or at least that is what I tell everyone when I am wearing my big sunglasses.) For whatever reason I decided to give this woman a second glance, she is walking arm and arm with a guy, she's very pregnant and WAIT A MINUTE. IT's TORI SPELLING!!! HA HA HAHAAAAAA.... I watched her once I went across the street to see where she was going. Her and her husband went into dressew. I am very curious as to what they were doing in there and regret not going back to find out. It would have probably been funny. I hope she wasn't trying to make a halloween costume.
Anyways. That's all. I know I see famous people at work all the time but it is fun to spot people on the street in strange places.
ON another note I went to see TIDELAND on Saturday night - the new Terry Gilliam movie. I LOVED IT. Some people might find it to disturbing and dark but it was my kind of thing. (Don't bring your kids) Jodelle Ferland (who is in the movie I am currently working on) is in it and she is amazing!!!! GO SEE IT.. unless you aren't good with disturbing things. Then better not. Or read the book first so you know what yoaure getting into. ALthough I haven't read the book at all so who am I to say if that is a good idea.
Blah blah blah. I have alot of work to do tonight perhaps I should start it.....

Birdie vs the turkey

Saturday, October 14, 2006

Yesterday was Mommy's birthday so today she wanted to celebrate! First Mommy slept in - well slept until 8:00am. These days that is pretty late. Mommy and Daddy have been getting up between 4:00am and 5:00am all week. It was not fun.
We slept in. Then after Mommy had her shower her favourite show - PROJECT RUNWAY - was on. And it was a repeat of the episode she missed last week. YIPPEE!!! SO we all watched. We still can't decide who our favourite is. Last year Daniel was such an obvious choice. Maybe Michael? We definitely don't like Vincent or Angela.
Anyhoo after that we had to go run some errands.
While we were running errands Mommy got a green tea latte at Starbucks. She LOVES them and after hearing on CBC how good matcha green tea is Mommy has decided she can drink as many lattes as she wants. (RZ seems to like these too - whenever she buys starbucks for the crew she always orders a bunch of these)
Then we went to Barking Babies Mommy bought us argyle sweaters. Not as good as homemade but they are cashmere and will do until she has time to knit us that cool skull and crossbones one she saw. She also got presents for two other puppies. We liked it there cause we could wander all over the store without our leashes. Birdie liked to stand in the doorway and bark at everyone who walked past.
After we went there we were on our way to the Doggy Style Deli when I went into a bosley's pet store. Someone was holding the door open for me so I walked in and went straight to the counter. Since Mommy's hands were full trying to untangle Birdie she couldn't stop me. HA HA HAAAA. The ladies at the counter gave us pupperoni/jerky. I LOVE pupperoni/jerky. I know where all the petstore that give me treats are and I make Mommy go in them whenever we walk past.
Then we finally got to the deli. Mommy got us each a bowl of turkey with pumpkin and gravy. IT WAS SOOOOO GOOD. We couldn't finish! So we got people bags to take it home. The lady was even feeding me by hand. I asked if I could stay with her but she didn't pick me up and take me away. Oh well. At least we have turkey leftovers at home that we are allowed to eat.
Then Mommy stopped here. She said she needed a birthday cake - more like 6 birthday cakes - all different colors. A crazy lady was trying to pet Birdie while Mommy was inside. When Mommy came out she tried to tell her that Birdie bites - the crazy lady didn't speak english. She is lucky that she didn't lose a finger.
Now Birdie and I both are going to have turkey naps.
I like it when Mommy has a birthday. (She is a million years old now in case you are wondering)

You KNOW we will be watching this on Monday....

Nothing to do on Monday? Stay tuned to this turkey
CALGARY -- Okay, it isn't Gemini-worthy original programming, but it could be the surprise smash of the Thanksgiving weekend.

Turkey TV will hit the air holiday Monday featuring nothing but a 10-pound roasting turkey surrounded by carrots, tomatoes and fresh greens in front of a traditional wood-fired oven. Highlights of this riveting new show, which does not actually offer cooking advice, includes the occasional basting by a hand.

"It looks like a real nice turkey and there's a lovely crackling fire behind it," said Peter Bissonnette, president of Shaw Communications Inc., which is the brains behind the bird. "I think people will record this."

The Calgary-based company has been working on the project for a couple of months as a way to celebrate the holiday. It enlisted the help of a local restaurant where the turkey was cooked and filmed.

But clearly the folks at Canada's second biggest cable television operator aren't taking themselves too seriously. Rarely has a press release announcing the launch of a new show been so breathless, with corporate tongue planted firmly in cheek.

Turkey TV promises its ongoing coverage (55 minutes of footage will be played all day on a loop) will "keep viewers on the edge of their seats throughout this thrilling turkey program."

Shaw is hoping to build on the success of its previous much-loved holiday hit --a fire log.

The crackle and hiss of a burning log was introduced to audiences in Edmonton during the 1986 Christmas season. Hours of footage of a blazing hearth was interrupted from time to time by an arm, which would reach in to stoke the fire or change the charred piece of wood. The arm, of course, went on to become the star of the show.

The fire log video spread like wildfire across the country. It even spawned knockoffs. And, a cult-like following.

When the local Shaw station in Victoria wrapped up nine days of its holiday log run in 2000, the switchboard lit up like a Christmas tree and protesters gathered outside the station demanding that the program return. The station, taken aback by the reaction, acquiesced.
*(there was more to the article but it went on about cruelty to animals and such and really it is all about the cooking turkey on tv)

Mommy was talking to Uncle Nick yesterday and she got WAYYYY too excited, Now she is talking about flying to NYC next weekend. Apparently Uncle Nick is working on a film in NYC and HIS people sent a script to DAVID BOWIE's people and now they are just waiting for DAVID BOWIE's people to call back to see if he wants the part. IF DAVID BOWIE takes the part Mommy has decided she will be his personal dresser and is going to fly to NYC immediately.
Think of all the garbage she can go through this time to find crap to frame on the wall.
(For those of you who don't know Mommy took a make up sponge out of David Bowie's dressing room in NYC a few years ago. She is hoping there is DNA on it and she will one day be able to clone him. She also has drum sticks, the X of tape that says DB on it and marked where he stood on stage, 5 guitar picks, a playlist..... I think that is all.)
Needless to say she is VERY excited.
Wish her luck.
