Off to see me some Bill Cosby!

Tomorrow sees a significant item being checked off my bucket list. That being, ‘See Bill Cosby live.’ As in, ‘in concert’. Not just ‘breathing’. Ehem.

I’ve had the ticket for months – even though I knew it would involve some logistical hiccups in making it happen, namely because:

– I have no child-care;

– The closest his tour is coming to where I live is Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, a good seven hours drive away at best; and

– I have no child-care.

But, throwing caution to the wind like a pair of over-sized knickers, fluttering their way through the prairies on a Chinook, I booked the dang ticket anyway. I could not let such fickle worries stop me from fulfilling a life-long dream such as this! BILL COSBY! LIVE! LEGENDARY! AGH!

So, dear friends, tomorrow morn at the crack of dawn, I’m packing the kidlets into the van and we’re embarking on a crazy adventure across the country-side. With the promise of stopovers at the world-famous Dinosaur Museum in Drumheller and a pool at our motel at the other end, combined with a serious supply of snacks and car-time amusements, we’re all actually in pretty jovial spirits about the whole thing.

I’ll let ya know how it all pans out. So long as the van holds up and we don’t end up stranded in small-town Saskatchewan, I’m sure it shall all be glorious and I shall forevermore cry to the heavens on every October 30th, remembering being touched by the hand of Cosby.

So finally I can relate to the throes of Hollywood celebs who seize the chance to lend their voiceover talents to the latest Pixar flick, in order that their bizarrely-named offspring might have a chance to enjoy the fruits of Mummy and Daddy’s more age-appropriate work. In other words: I’m in my first kids’ showContinue Reading

One of my favourite comedy moments EVER

Just scrolling through Youtube in another effort to extend the limits of my sleep deprivation, and came across this gem – what I consider to be one of the BEST comedic moments ever. (Hey, it’s all opinion in this industry, let’s not forget). I saw the full interview a couple of years back – withContinue Reading

What’s in a Name?

Okay, let me just say I’m stoked that the kids are even excited about their soon-to-arrive latest family installment. I had expected the ‘where do babies come from’ questions. I had expected the rubbing of the tummy and the impatience with the whole affair. What I hadn’t expected was for them to get so damnContinue Reading
