So the most gorgeous people in the world showed up for our Corrie Canuck/BIS weekend.
What a deeeeeeeeeeee-light to finally meet Shatnerian, Kowie, Debbie and London Rob - all of whom are funny, amazing and all around good folk.
Friday night had the out-of-towners at Chez Glacia's for beverages, schnackies and of course Coronation Street. Can I tell you how great it was to sit around the telly with other Corrie Canucks? Makes me think I should do this more often.
Saturday, the Shatnerians, Debbie, Ang and myself went to the British Isle Show and saw Jennie MacApline, bought to our hearts content and had groovy time. The show was good, the only down points were trying to find seating for lunch and listening to the god-awful MC they had hired (but the dancers and pipers made up for him.).
Saturday night was the big event where 15 people showed up for the Corrie Canuck pub night at the Auld Spot. The marvelous Lisa brought a 45* of Jack and Vera singing together that was the prize for the first trivia game. The second trivia game was for a signed picture of Sean. We found out that John is a trivia god that we should bow before as he easily scored both pressies.
A big thanks to EVERYONE who came out that night and especially the new faces. I hope you had a good time and will be out again for some drinks and Corrie nonsense. Drop me a line at glacia at gmail dot com to be put on the evite list.
And a HUGE thank you to the staff at the Auld Spot for once again welcoming our large group and treating us so well. The food, drink and atmosphere at the Auld Spot is incredible...but the service goes above and beyond.
Now...my favorite quotes of the weekend:
'I live in Sudbury - that's GOD'S country there.'
'Was she high or just Scottish?'
'This will be my jublies mug.'
'John, quick! Get the picture of the weird guy!'
'You want to buy some crack?'
* To our younger readers, a '45' is a small version of something called a 'record' - a round flat disc that you could put on a phonograph to listen to music or spoken word. This technology soon gave way to the CD (or compact disc) sometime in the late 1930's.
