Get Up When a Lady Comes In!

2008 November 29

As I’ve mentioned before, I work in a sort of posh restaurant downtown and we get a regular slew of celebrities passing through, from A list to Z list.  Last night I served Miss Kim Woodburn from the TV show How Clean Is Your House?

Kim’s the one on the left (with the fancy hair.)  She was truly fabulous last night, complete with sunglasses at night and a draft of perfume that could be smelled within an area about the size of a football field.  I had never even heard of this woman, but a lot of people were pretty excited that she was there. Apparently the show is  amazing, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Below is a clip from the show.  “You know what I think you are?  Dirty!”

Come On, Ride the Green Train

2008 May 11

I went to my hometown this weekend and who was on the platform beside me as I was waiting for the train to come in? Well if it wasn’t Elizabeth May, the leader of Canada’s federal Green Party! I bet Stéphane Dion and Jack Layton don’t take VIA Rail. Her partner or husband was there to see her off, which reminded me of the fact that Stephen Harper doesn’t hug his children, but rather shakes their hands.

I kind of regret not introducing myself to Ms. May. I’ve read her book “How to Save the World in Your Spare Time” and I’ve seen her speak at Queen’s University. I’ve actually seen a bunch of politicians speak live, and she was the only one who actually answered the questions she was asked in the Q & A periods. She’s very real and very interesting.

She was traveling with a fluorescent green suitcase.

Who Wants To Be A C-List Celebrity

2007 September 1

A couple of nights ago, we served Pamela Wallin at the restaurant. 


I actually didn’t know who she was, but found out she was famous somebody when she complained (loudly) about her waiter (not her service), throwing out words such as asshole and terrible.  Anyway, somebody actually had to tell me it was her and I only recall that she was the host of Canada’s version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.  Apparently she was also a pretty famous journalist for the CBC, and is now a diplomat, an author, and the incumbent Chancellor for the University of Guelph.

Quote of the Day!

2007 July 31

Him: “Why is getting divorced so expensive?”
Me: “Tell me.”
Him: “Because it’s worth it!”

– Joke told to me by one of the guests at my restaurant.  This doesn’t even make sense!
