Sorta Celeb-day

While driving to work, I saw Lorne Calvert. Now for many of you who do not live in the prairie province I do will not know who Lorne is. He was Saskatchewan's Premiere for many years. But the great thing about seeing Lorne Calvert, was not just that I saw him, but that I saw him smoking a pipe. It was awesome.

Then, when going home on a break to let the dogs out, I saw Willy Cole. Now, Willy is a Regina icon. He hosted a radio show on the AM station for years (I don't know, does he still??) and does some hosting at the football games. I saw him in his big white truck turning onto a street by my office. I don't know what he was doing, but it was pretty neat.

Two celebrities in one day. I'm not sure my heart can handle it. Next thing you know, I might see Tom Brown!*

*This is likely only funny to Ky and a few other Reginians. Tom is a tool.

  1. If you wanted me to hate Tom Brown, you shouldn't have linked to a picture of him holding a puppy.

  2. I saw Tom Brown at a stop light once. I was in the car with another girl, and he pulled up and we both turned and waved frantically. He waved back jovially.

    Then as we pulled away, I was like, "Man, I can't stand that guy! Why the heck did I just do that?" and she confessed she didn't like him either. Neither of us could figure out why the sudden eagerness at the sight of Tom Brown.

    We must have both been so temporarily blinded by his amazing star status that we couldn't help but wave.

  3. He better be careful,
    he'll wreck those shiny new teeth of his if he keeps up with those pipe smoking shinanigans.

    (I know the surgeon who "did them")


Crap monkies say "what?"
