As I was getting ready to leave for my performance tonight, I discovered that I had a voice mail from an unexpected caller: Starbucks Guy! He works at U of T and he wanted to meet up with me for coffee. I couldn’t get a hold of him, so I left him a voice mail message saying that I’d be performing at Statlers and he should come check me out. I left for TO and never heard back from him all night. Too bad ’cause he missed out on a great performance. I didn’t end up playing my set list in the order I listed yesterday. Instead I played the following:
- Blackwinged Bird by Emm Gryner
- (They Long To Be) Close To You by The Carpenters
- FAKE – Mika Nakashima (No vocal version)
It went really well and I think lots of people enjoyed it. I made some new friends tonight too. I shared a table with a woman for most of the night, befriended a Mexican named Johnathan, the guy sharing his table who’s name was Paul, a fiddler named Joe (who I am having dinner with tomorrow. No dice, Starbucks Guy), and Richard, a man who owns a sailboat that invited Joe and I on a trip to Toronto Island (I don’t know if I’ll go yet…) on Sunday. I’ll probably go back next Wednesday to perform again, or on Monday and make a bunch of connections with the Theatre folk. It was so much fun and everyone was very friendly and singing along… It was fabulous. I also had a half litre of wine bought for Joe and I by a man. I was originally going to buy it to split between the two of us, but this guy insisted, so we got free red wine.
In addition to dinner tomorrow, I get my lab results and an examination of some bumps that have not left my legs since I got them waxed 2 weeks ago. Plus I’ll get to check out the new Fall line at work! It’s going to be a good day.
P.S. I got my courses registered for College. My schedule is going to be busy but fun.
