Looks like I was wrong...

... and the wise ariadnie was right cause here I am posting again.  But I have a good reason.  First let me get the fangirling out of the way.

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!

*calms down*  Now that I got that out of my system, let me explain.

Sunday is the induction ceremony for Canada's Walk of Fame.  My friends & I were able to snag some free tickets to the red carpet mainly to catch a glimpse of Kiefer Sutherland (an inductee) and Jason Bateman (inducting Paul Anka).  All was good and plans were made.  But our plans have fallen apart but in a good way.  How?  Cause we now have free tickets to the actual gala!!  2 of the gals received phone calls that informed them they were randomly chosen and they plus their guests are invited to attend the ceremony.  (ok, did that sentence even make any sense?)  I am so excited.  Our seats are probably crappy but the ceremony is being held at the Elgin Theatre which is a nice, intimate place so even if we're stuck in the last row, just give me a pair of binoculars and I'm happy.

The negative side?  This means I'm going to have to dress up.  I HATE dressing up.  It's hard enough for me to find casual clothes that look halfway decent, it's near impossible for dress clothes.  Of course, it doesn't help when your choice is limited to about 3 stores.  I hate being a plus-size.

*pushes negative thoughts away*

Oh, I just read a little blurb on the CTV website and it looks like Michael Buble will be appearing (eeeeeeeeeee!).  Gordon Lightfoot is inducting Daniel Lanois (music producer).  Bruce Cockburn is inducting Alanis Morissette who will perform, as will Paul Anka.  Michael Douglas is inducting Kiefer.  Wow, this sounds awesome. 

On a completely different note -- I own a condo in downtown Toronto which I'm currently renting out.  When I purchased this condo, it didn't come with a parking space so I've been sorta keeping an eye out if anything pops up.  Well, there is now one parking spot sale -- for $26,000!!!!  Forget that.

I need to make some icons.

This Walk of Fame thing sounds pretty cool. Does it happen every year? Why is Jason Bateman inducting Paul Anka? Jason Bateman rocks; I was just wondering why, as he's not a musician. Or Canadian. Hey, wouldn't it be funny if they pulled out Jacob's 'Put Your Head on My Shoulder' performance clip?

Our Walk of Fame started in 1998 and so far, they've had inductees every year since then.

Jason Bateman is Paul Anka's son-in-law. Cool, huh? I didn't know either.

Oh, weird. My coworker just asked for me to cover for her on Monday because her Toronto sister just snagged tickets for the gala. And they're most interested in Kiefer. too. I didn't even know Canada *had* a walk of fame. Those tickets are worth, like $625 apiece. Way to go!

Well that's shitty - *London* has about 3 plus size stores, so you would think that Toronto could do better. And yeah, finding flattering dress clothes *sucks*. I have one sort of formal dress that I bought in 1993! It's completely out of style but I'm hanging onto it because hell, it fits.

Well, there is now one parking spot sale -- for $26,000!!!! Forget that.

Oh, Toronto. That's hilarious.

It's all about Kiefer (and Jason)!!

And you know what's crazy about that parking spot? The more I think about it, I wonder if I might as well buy it now. It's only going to increase in price. Then again, one doesn't really need a car when living in downtown Toronto.
