Wake Up And Get Real

I’ve been up since 6:30am because I couldn’t sleep anymore and just found Kelly Cutrone & Justine Bateman’s online show called Wake Up And Get Real.  I can’t believe I haven’t seen or heard of this before and I’m hooked.  The latest episode talks about the ridiculous new Hollywood fad diet the “Baby Food Diet”.  I can’t believe people are really that ridiculous that they would eat baby food.  Justine makes a great point that babies eat when they’re hungry, stop when they’re full and are active all day long – maybe more people should try that.

Last night I went to Flirty Girl Fitness with Raymi to try out Pole Dancing.  I have to admit I was a little scared and slightly intimidated by it, but as soon as we walked in the door I was ready.  The studio is really nice, staff is all very cute and friendly and the pole dancing was actually really fun.  I picked it up right away and I think I’m going to go back and take some more classes.

After our exercise we went over to Marben to have a glass of wine and Raymi’s friend Alex, is the chef there.  He made us an amazing tomato salad and bass.  The food was amazing and the fish was so good I actually ate it!

Then we went to Bier Market on King to meet a new friend of hers.  We walked in the door and the host gave us so much attitude and completely gave me the stink eye when he handed me my menu.  I honestly couldn’t believe how rude he was.  The our waitress copped attitude and everyone was super snotty.  We ordered a dessert that was supposedly made that day and it was old, dry and not very good at all.  I definitely won’t be going back there.  The only good thing about the place was that I got to hear HTV on the satellite radio.

I was on my way up to Queen when Shaun called to see what I was up to and he & some friends were on their way to Hideout so I went to meet them for a drink.  I was there about 5 minutes before and got accosted by some really drunk Netherland-ers.  Made friends with the biggest bartender and then Shaun walked in with his bro & John from Ill Scarlett to save me.  Love seeing and hanging out with Shaun.  FYI – John has a way bigger head and is a way bigger person than me.

Have a lot of work to get done today and then I’m going to go downtown to meet Shaun to re-pierce my nose for the 3rd time.  It’s also Busking for Change all over the city today and you’ll be able to hear some of your favourite Canadian major label & indie artists.  Make sure you bring your change with you because all proceeds go to War Child Canada.  Check out the site to see who’s playing and where.
