What’s that Joseph Campbell quote? We must be willing to get rid of the life we planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. Something like that.
So goodbye high school overalls. Goodbye scrubs. Goodbye carefully collected paintings. Goodbye still-alive orchid and shells from India and fish family. It’s been swell. Hello cute baby niece, and Patty on a Bun, and super hot nights. There are things to look forward to.
The last few weeks have been really fun, actually. All parties in my honour, and lazing around. I got to meet Jared Padalecki (from Gilmore Girls and Supernatural) last week. He was having dinner right next to me (sitting at a table with Marcia Gay Harden and a lot of other movie types at West on South Granville). I couldn’t help it. I said hi to him. And he was SO NICE. Very charming. Huge too. Super tall and way bigger than I expected him to be, having only seen him on television. And super hot of course. My fellow table mates emitted much giggling. (Side note: Marcia Gay Harden looks really young in real life. Much younger than you’d expect.)
The Western Magazine Awards Foundation hosted their finalist party last week. It’s where the short list of potential winners is announced. It was pretentious and boring in a lot of ways, filled with people who don’t seem to get that being a local media celebrity in a city this small isn’t really something to be so full of yourself about, but whatever. That’s what magazine people are like. There were free drinks and hot cars to look at, so it was okay.
Anyway, I guess that’s it for now. I probably won’t blog again until I’m back in Toronto (around the end of the first week of June). Until then, I’ll just be bonding with my ipod and the i94. Oh yeah, baby. Open road.
Smog, here I come.
