Today Leah, Leah’s Mom, Auntie Lyn and I went to the Bluma Appel Theatre to see CanStage’s presentation of The Rocky Horror Show. This was my first Rocky Horror experience, and my first live theatre experience since 2003 (La BohÃ¨me at the Vienna State Opera…). I’d forgotten how much I enjoy it.
The show is fast paced and full of fun songs and bouncy dance numbers. The characters are great, and the actors really sold the story well. If you are looking for a fun afternoon, or evening at the theatre, without breaking the bank to do so – CanStage at Bluma Appel is the way to go!
I like playing 6/49 and Super 7 from time-to-time, but the situation that was revealed by AndrÃ© Marin this week is shocking. Why are the retailers not regulated or registered? How come the OLC do not know how many retailers they have? In just about every other contest/lottery employees, family of employees, friends of employees, people who work for agencies of the contest/lottery administrator are not eligible to win. But yet in a multi-billion dollar public lottery they can??? I have more faith in the local 50/50 draw at the arena than I do in the OLC right now.
So, a regular joe like me is going to have to win tonights $25 million dollar draw to start the process of fixing this problem.
I don’t get the fascination with the story. There is an election in Quebec that could change the make-up of Canada and the OLG review was released damning the agency and retailers yet most of the headlines relate to the death of a stripper/drug abuser.
She was a D-grade “star” who “married” a rich old guy on his death bed for his money.
End of rant. For today.
Last night we went out to Carey Ann’s place for dinner with her, Jeff, Craig and Jenn. After a great helping of of Thai food, Carey Ann surprised us with a cake celebrating our engagement.
Thanks for a great evening, and a wonderful surprise.
It’s hard to believe that I’ve lived in the condo for a year already, but it’s true. On March 29, 2006 I took posession of my first home; a home that I now share with my wonderful fiancÃ©e Leah!
Sadly, when I bought this place I thought I was going to live the single guy in the city life for a few more years, and that this would be my bachelor ad in the sky!
My how things change…
We went out to the Madison Avenue Pub to celebrate the day with some friends… but my incredibly stuffed nose and pounding headache brought us home early. Now, mind you, we were at the pub at 2:30 this afternoon – we only managed to stick it out for about 3.5 hours.
Is it only me who thinks that sofas start to become more appealing with each passing day??? Or is it just me and my sofa?
FiancÃ©…I got to say, “my fiancÃ©” for the first time. It put this big goofy grin on my face just saying it…”my fiancÃ©”. Hopefully I’ll start to focus more on work, and less on the sparkly ring, soon Who am I kidding. It’s all about the sparkles for a while!
Earlier tonight I asked Leah to marry me.
She said, “Yes. Of course sweetie! Yes, yes, yes!!”
More details to follow…
No, this is not a wedding announcement; just a post about a letter we received today that was addressed to us – sharing my last name.
In the past this would have been cause for some laughter, but no emotional involvement.
This time, however, I really liked the look of our names. A lot.
