Gentlemen Prefer Blondes Tour v. 2.0 Tour Diary #2
Lesley and I had 2 days off (what a way to start a tour) since we last touched base. Poor Lesley’s been suffering from a cold. I’ve spent those days up to my eyes in meetings. And when I wasn’t in meetings, I was collecting parking tickets. Blonde hair doesn’t seem to get me out of those.
This was the groovy ride I was given to accomplish my tasks. It’s what would happen if a smart car and a mini cooper had baby.
The last few dates have been quite uneventful as far as touring goes, and especially for a Blondes tour. I even contemplated eating some chicken wings listed on the menu after our gig at Fanshawe College – 6 suicide wings and if you could eat them all, you’d get your photo on the wall. Didn’t do it. I’m blonde, not crazy.
Unfortunately, due to unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, our Windsor show was cancelled at the last minute. And so, with nothing but an extra 12 hours of time on our hands, we spent the night in a movie theater with another favorite blonde, Ryan Gosling.
On our way to London (Ontario…people keep asking me when I got to the UK, so I feel I need to start making the geographical location a lot clearer), Lesley and I decided it was time for this tour to have a theme song. You’ll need to stay tuned (ha – no pun intended) for that future hit song written on the 401.
Tomorrow is our last show, and then back to the left coast I go. It’s been a blast, to say the least. Time flies when you’re having fun and since blondes DO have more fun, it’s been double speed .
