This was at the end of the night. What this man does for his fans. I did not intend to do it, but I found myself doing a mile a minute on George. When it came time for me to meet George, I wanted to do 4 things. One Get Barbara B. Message to him. I wrote it down and and he read it and got it. I then showed him the pic of my car not because I love my car. Because there seems to be a spirit in the picture. I wanted his reaction. He showed it round, and asked me if I wanted him to think it was a ghost, but I left that up to him. I also gave him a car. Thanked him for being himself, and Best of all got a hug. I think I did this all in one minute. I spent the rest of the time hearing the day in day out stories of The Hour straight from David Freed (sp?) That is how the day ended.
This is how this day began.
It was raining quite a bit. It made driving to the Metro fun. I was right on my predictions that I would be having a bad hair day. So no pic of me. I arrived at the Just For Laughs Museum at 5:30 pm. Way too early! I used my inner compass and found a mall to hang out in. Got back at 6:30 and found a long line that was soon let in. We were stamped by the mark of the CBC Newsworld. Found myself in another line in the Just for laughs bar. I spotted Kyle of One Red Paperclip having a drink with his friends. As we scrambled for our seats I snagged an isle seat but it was nearer the back. I was hiding behind a lady in a big white sweater. Kyle was seated the next row back. I asked him if I could take a pic. I have to learn better social graces as I forgot his friends names. Here it is.
George soon took centre stage and talked to us about the show. His charm, quick wit and intelligent responses are what fans of the Hour expect but may surprise people watching for the first time. He is a pleasure to watch. As he started the show he was all focused energy. The professional team are all well practiced in putting this show together with well timed synchronized energy. I later learned all the cool details.
This is what the set looks like with George and Graham of The Hour on it. Sorry 'bout the quality of this pic.
