It's Insta-Friday again and time to share simple photos from the past week.
The highlight of my week was when my friend Jackie and I attended a taping of the "Steven and Chris" show. Chris from DK Canada invited me to be in the studio audience while they presented DK's Smithsonian Fashion book.
There was lots of clapping involved, I'll tell you. And my cheek muscles hurt by the end from all the forced enthusiasm, but it was a lot of fun nevertheless, especially with Jackie grumbling by my side. (She was hungry and tired of being instructed to perform like a trained seal.) We couldn't actually see Steven and Chris with the cameras in the way.
Poor Jackie. In between segments they would entertain the audience with opportunities to win prizes. I won a prize just because they called out my seat number. (A book from that horrible guy on Dragons' Den and a nice jar of body scrub.) When they called out Jackie's number, they had a special treat in store for her.
They called her to the front and stuck a picture of disaster-prone Toronto Mayor Rob Ford on her head. I don't even like playing Hedbanz with my family, never mind in front of a studio audience. She had to ask yes or no questions to figure out who it was. All I could think was "I'm glad that's not me right now." Sorry Jackie. Anyway, she won a foam roller in the end. Now she gets to exercise. Yay.
Afterwards, we ate lunch in the lobby. Strombo was at the next table, but Jackie didn't care. She was so hungry she could have eaten Strombo.
"Steven and Chris" airs on CBC weekdays at 2 p.m. You can also see the show in the U.S. on ABC's LiveWell Network. Look for Jackie and me on March 20th, in the second row, on the far right, smiles pasted on our faces.
Have a fabulous weekend!
