I Am Such A Lucky Hobbit!

Humble Readers... omg... I am soooooooooo excited!

I just got a phone call from work.  A very well known Canadian author/raido personality is in town this week.  I have mentioned him before, but seriously, Stuart McLean is hilarious!  He writes and tells the Vinyl Cafe stories on CBC Radio.  Some of you may be familiar with 'Dave Cooks The Turkey'.

Anyway, he's doing a concert tonight in town.  He stopped by my store today to do an impromptu appearance and sign his books (what a day to have off!!!) and his producer was giving away free tickets to our staff.  One of the other managers, who knows that my Beloved and I are huge fans, got his producer to set aside a set of tickets for us!  They run between $50-70 a pop... and we get to go for free!!!!  Tonight!!!!

Can you tell I'm excited?

Okay, I have to go get dinner started and put on something presentable. 



  1. How cool is that!! I love Stuart McLean. Have a great time!!

  2. Hope you have fun! I think Stuart McLean is great!! :)

  3. I am so excited for you! Have a great time :)

  4. Oooh fun. Have a great time :)

  5. How exciting! Have a wonderful night!

  6. How cool! Have oh so much fun and then have some more! (And now I will look up this famed Canadian author...)

  7. Meekly peering in from a long absence...so exciting about the author! I've so appreciated your support on my blog, and please forgive me for my lack of support to you.

    You are most definitely in my prayers that your dreams of motherhood will be answered. I know you believe God has a plan for you, and I just pray that he reveals it clearly.

    I thought of you recently when my BIL showed us pictures of his recent trip to New Zealand. He visited 'Hobbiton' and the 'weta workshop' there...you would have loved it!!!!

  8. Yay for you! Hope you had a fabulous night! Can't wait to hear about it!

  9. never heard of him... none the less, I hope you had a GREAT! time.


Hobbits are social creatures, and love hearing from friends old and new. Pull up a comfy chair and let's get to know one another.
