Just a Dream

I had this dream last night...actually it was this morning after I woke up too early and forced myself to go back to sleep. That never really works by the way, I always end up more tired! Anyhow, the dream was about standing up to my childhood bully. I had several, but she is the worst, its her torment that sticks with me to this day.

In the dream I was walking down a hall, I had just been talking to someone, possibly on the phone and there she is standing there. "Shut up!" she says to me out of nowhere. I stopped dead in my tracks and for the first time in my life I stood up to her. I said 'NO! We're 27 and you're still acting like a child? Grow the fuck up!' She said something in response, but I don't remember that part. I should have written about this when first woke up, you know how it is.

If only I had that kind of courage when I was 12. Or 23, when she prank called my family home several times after she saw that I wasn't fat anymore...apparently she didn't like me skinny either. I always hope that karma will kick in someday....

I can honestly say that if someday our paths cross again, I will have the courage to stand up to her if the opportunity presents itself. At least one of us grew up.

Gangsta's Paradise

So this past weekend I attended my first Bachelorette party...the first of many I'm sure. I had SO much fun! We all gathered at Charlene's to get ready and pre-drink. We just basically used her place as one big change room. We ended up all going with Black and Apryl, the Bride to be wearing only white. We all had on Fishnets and Fedora's, and we all looked damn hot!

After an hour of getting ready and drinking we headed over to Muzik. Now for anyone who knows me, they know I am not a club person. At all. I have to say though, I really, really liked this place. For starters, ladies free before 10:30, complimentary hair and makeup, a free glass of Champagne, and Strawberries and Chocolate! Bliss!!! The guy who did my hair was absolutely fabulous! He loved what he was doing to my hair so much that he said he wanted to "chew me like bubble gum!" hahaha I can only take that as a good thing. And he gave me a nice Rose when he was done. Another reason I liked this club was that it's 21+ for girls and 25+ for guys. Thank god for that. One of the main reasons I hate clubs is the 19 year olds!

The group of us wearing Fedora's really caught people's attention, we were a hit! It was so much fun!!! I just found it hilarious that so many guys came up and asked what was up with the Fedora's, we would say its a Bacelorette and they would ALL ask "Who's getting married?" haha yesss the girl in all white! Silly boys!

We passed out at Char's around 3:30 in the morning....what a good night! Gotta love a good night out with the girls. Doesn't happen often for me, so I really soak it up when it does!

Now we just have to wonder 'who's next?'Xoxo

Canadian Music Week 2010

March 10-13th was Canadian Music Week and I look forward to it every single year. Overall it was a great week...there was just some speed bumps along the way.

Some of the bands I checked out included, Joey McIntyre, Down With Webster, Low Level Flight, illScarlett, Birds of Wales, Our Lady Peace and The Junction. Two Girls and a Blog got a chance to interview Low Level Flight, Stereos, Rick from Finger Eleven, Karl Wolf, Tommy from Hedley and Morgan from Birds of Wales. Unfortunately, there were some planned interviews that didn't happen, illScarlett, Darren from The Salads, USS and Zack Werner. I'm sure we'll definitely be able to get those rescheduled at some point. We also handed out Two Girls and a Blog Condom matchbooks! Boy, those were a hit!

Be sure to check out for our video blogs!

Aside from all of the bands that I love checking out during CMW, there are even more reasons that I love this week so much. It's the environment. You're walking through the Royal York hotel and it's filled with Music Industry people, Musicians, Radio industry people, press from all sorts of media outlets. Everything that I love in one place! I just soak it in while I can, like why spend all day locked in a hotel room when I can be out talking to people and networking? You never know who you're going to run into.

On Thursday as I was heading back into the hotel to get my coat from coat check, I ran into my old teachers and classmates from college. Good ol' Fanshawe Radio! We spent a good hour talking and catching up. That is definitely a highlight of the week for me.

I also kinda learned some things about myself, or maybe it was coming to realizations, admitting things to myself, and showing more signs that I am in fact getting older...

I have never liked pushy crowds at concerts, but lately I really hate them. I don't enjoy being pushed around by drunk people while trying to watch a band that I love. I would much rather stand on the side, just out of the mob and enjoy the music! I injured my knee this week as well, so being in a crowd like that was out of the question. I would have been killed. Just sayin'.

In my job as a cell phone rep for a particular company I get asked all of the time why I don't use Blackberry. It's a simple answer really. When you're surrounded by Blackberry users you're not as important as the 5 other people you're friends are chatting with constantly on BBM, MSN and Facebook. You never ever have peoples undivided attention. I miss the days of real conversations without a phone vibrating every 5 seconds. I miss that like I miss the days of Entertainment Tonight being about Movie/TV stars and not the Gosslin's, Octomom and The Bachelor scandals. But hey, that's just me. (And Mary Hart, she feels the same :)

Music has always been a part of me. I have loved that more than anything my entire life. It's what gets me through the tough times and makes the good times that much better. I would be perfectly happy working in music for the rest of my life. That is where I fit in. Its who I am. I did a lot of thinking about that while watching Our Lady Peace at Massey Hall on Saturday. My love for music overwhelmed me. This is where I should be.

Speaking of OLP, I also learned that their fans are crazier than I ever imagined. It was fantastic!

I learned that it took 4 people to close an ironing board. We have video.
