Old news to some (happenened back in August '12), though news to me. It's like when Lady Gaga was in Lethbridge…but who knew? Anyway, Helena Bonham Carter somehow took a wrong turn down some street in Hollywood and ended up in our city, at Silla Designs. I don't know if she actually bought anything, or maybe just had to use the restroom.
So aside from that, and because I don't have anywhere else to tell this story, my sister once was a table or two away from Heath Ledger and Michelle Williams in Calgary, while the couple was filming "Brokeback Mountain." That makes me cool too. Does anyone know if they dating before or after the movie, because I still wonder who is better in bed – Michelle or Jake Gyllenhaal?
This past Tuesday, I had the opportunity to listen to Jessi Cruickshank speak to Lethbridge College students at their new student orientation. So I took it.
Anyway, I only went because she was a MTV hostess, as well as a hot ginger. But then I discovered how cool of a person she is, and how she’s an ambassador for Free the Children. She had some interesting stories about living with families in India and Kenya, such as the time she drank blood straight from a slaughtered goat’s throat.
Basically, I am writing this post to gloat that I met her. Yes, I actually touched her. And haven’t washed my right hand since Tuesday! Oh, and take a look at Free the Children to donate!
Today, yours truly met his future ex-wife, Lethbridge’s "So You Think You Can Dance Canada" superstar, Tara-Jean Popowich.
Now you may think I had this planned all along, but it was fate that brought us together! It just so happened that on the day when I got my license back oil changed, she was at Milestone Mazda receiving her prize of a Mazda 3 and signing autographs for small girls and old people.
Tara-Jean, perhaps one day we’ll get to polka. Until then, know that I am always watching you…
Usually, all it takes for me is a few cocktails to break out my dancing shoes. That’s not to say I can’t dance unless I have a few in me, but I’m 99% positive that I am a better dancer when I do. 100%, even.
Lately, the extent of my dancing has been the last 2 weddings that I have crashed in as many weeks. It gives me the physical contact that I crave, without being outright creepy. No cuddle parties here!
Where was I going with this? Oh yeah.
Following the lead of Lethbridge mega-star Theo Tams, we have Tara-Jean Popowich. She’s a 20-year-old firecracker from Lethbridge, currently running in the top 4 of CTV’s “So You Think You Can Dance Canada.”
There’s an episode tonight that will decide her fate! Will she move onto the top spot? I don’t care, because I don’t watch that show! Maybe some of you do, but I just think she’s a babe.
