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.
