|Watch Republic of Doyle on CBC|
My Facebook friend Lauren announced she had scored two tickets to see the CBC nighttime talk show, George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight in Toronto for Monday, January 10, and after a few jokes back and forth about whether she is a stalker after meeting one of the show's guests, Allan Hawco (star of Republic of Doyle~one of my favourite television shows) just a couple of weeks ago (she's not) and my 35+ Great Big Sea shows a few years back (I was) she kindly invited me to come along to the taping with her!
So we go on Monday, 4pm at CBC Studios in downtown Toronto! I am thrilled and ever so grateful, thank you Lauren! Oh..and on another interesting note, Lauren and I have never met in person but we do laugh a lot on Face Book so I'm sure we'll hit it off in person. I already like her and I mean I'm a riot. A regular crack up. She'll love me. (I hope).
Then today, I'm on Face Book again (shut up...yes I'm addicted...no I don't want an intervention...carry on) and the feed from Republic of Doyle goes through and it's a chance for 25 Toronto area fans (and their guest) to meet Allan Hawco at a local Toronto pub for drinks and to watch the season premiere with him! You know I had to go for it!
And you know that I won!
To make it even better, my friend Lauren also won! (So I have a spare..wanna come?)
So after the taping at CBC studios at 4pm we head to Fionn MacCool's for 7pm to hang out with Allan Hawco and watch the show!
It's a good thing too because I love this show and waiting until Wednesday was driving me crazy! (Yeah..that's the reason I'm so excited.)
Free drinks, nibblies and a pretty intimate crowd. We have been assured there will be photo opportunities so I will be reporting back to you!
But it'll still be fun even if I do have to be all reserved and not "squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee" all over downtown Toronto.
I will contain myself. I can and I will. Really.
Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (oops, sorry)
Now...what does one wear to a stalking?..er...I mean...television premiere?
