The more you know

*First things first – the show on Friday was amazing, and I couldn’t be happier with how it went. The headliner was brilliant and very complimentary after I performed, encouraging me to continue comedy and he let me know he was impressed that I had only been doing stand-up for a short time. I was also invited to perform at a local venue by another performer, which is rad.

Right after the show, M and I drove to our friends’ house as we had to dog sit for them all weekend, and only now have arrived home after a bonkers weekend of animals and activity.

So in lieu of anything even remotely sane, I present to you dear readers: 


Did you know that a Boston terrier can snore louder than a steam powered locomotive?

Did you know that three nights of little to no sleep due to said snoring can leave a person positively knackered?

Did you know that sometimes a run in the pea-soup mist can do wonders to revive your spirits?

Did you know that doing the exact same run two days later can tire you like no other, which is strange, so you imagine that the second day’s mist was the residual spittle from a dementor’s kiss?

Did you know that stand-up comedy is pretty much crack, only healthier for you?

Did you know that all I want to do is continue to make people laugh for the rest of my life?

Did you know that mint-green dresses are in?

Did you know that I’ve just been told that it’s just “mint-green” that’s in?

Did you know that I purchased a mint-green dress, but because of it’s dodgy length I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to wear it sans-tights?

Did you know that the best yogurt is lemon yogurt?

Did you know that after two days away from my cat I can never figure out who is more excited to see whom?

Did you know that if I had to eat only one kind of food for the rest of my life it would be south-Asian hands down, no contest?

Did you know that my amazing husband bought be a new laptop for my birthday because my current computer sounds like there is a hot tub bubbling away inside its processor?

Did you know that he also bought me The One Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and I will be reading nothing else this week?

Did you know that I’m also reading the Lost City of Z WHICH IS ABSOLUTELY CRAZY?

Did you know that Victorian adventurers were probably the nuttiest (and sometimes most appallingly racist) people of all time?

Did you know that sometimes I drink chocolate milk by the litre?

Did you know that there is a tumblr called Les Mean Girls, which is a mash up for Mean Girls and Les Mis? And that it is amazing?

Did you know that I adore you all and that as I fall asleep as I type this I want to know random, crazy things about your life and loves?

Did you know – zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…

  1. Fangette has mint green Vans, so I guess that color is “in”!

    And the best yogurt is banana. Everyone knows that. Silly Wabbit.

    So happy to hear of your success in the Vancouver comedy scene. You deserve it.

    1. Ahhh, a gal after my own heart. Vans were totally my high school thing! LOVE IT.

      Banana yogurt!? What the what? I don’t think we get such exotic things up here in the Great White North.

      And thanks!! Maybe I will try and swing something when I am out your way this summer…the possibilities!!

  2. Oh my goodness, what a weekend you two must have had! I really hope you’ve got a schedule this week that lets you catch up on sleep.
    I love how you compiled your weekend into 20 Questions! Hilarious, even though you may well have been snoozing over your keyboard. :)
    I’m so glad you brought it on Friday night, knew you would! And now you’re totally addicted to stand-up. Love it!!

    1. You and me both my dear! I shall try my utmost best to get some much needed rest.

      Also, my friend Damian and I are trying to organize a comedy road trip down your way over the next month. I shall keep you posted!!

      1. Happy dance!!! The weekends have been so full lately that they haven’t allowed for me to come up your way but if you think you can make it down here for a show, I’ll so be there to cheer you on, and of course we will chat it up over some good food and tasty drinks!! Ah!

  3. Congrats on Friday!
    Sounds like you need a good rejuvenating sleep! What a weekend!
    Don’t think about crazy things from my life…it could keep you awake or just frighten you. :)

  4. Did you know that minding four grandsons who came for a sleep over is in itself a comedy show for…them…and a nighmare for the grandparents?. Congratulations on your show. Keep making everyone laugh…The world needs it!!!

  5. Did you know that Tuesday is the day the universe decides to test your patience? Also, yay for successes and congratulations:)
