Pain for Me, Prizes for You

The good thing about this blog is that I’m not expected to write about last night’s hockey game.  So… I won’t.

The other day Michael was chatting with me about his new physiotherapist. He said that she was really quite an incredible body worker, and perhaps maybe she could be of assistance to me regarding my wonky hips. He told me that she’s got a mondo waitlist, so I should call ASAP to at least get my name in. I’ll probably be waiting a very long time to see her, but that’s ok – at least I’ll get in at some point, right?

So this morning I have an appointment with Michael’s physiotherapist…

And now I bring you Kili Gala Raffle Prize #2…  To recap, I am going to reveal one Kili Gala Raffle Prize a day until the actual Kili Gala on June 5th. The Kili Gala, of coyrse, is the mondo fundraising party that we’re throwing to benefit the Delta Hospice Society. Want tickets? Drop me a line at, or simply contact me through this site…

Kaymaran Adenture Tours is owned and operated by a very great dog named Brodie. He is instrumental in keeping our harbour safe from the evil sticks that float in the river. He bravely jumps in the water and soundly defeats those floating menaces with bravery and skill. And sharp teeth.

I spoke with Brodie about my upcoming Kili Gala fundraiser, and he was keen to help. Right away he told me to contact his best friend Tony, who does all the things at Kaymaran that require the use of an opposable thumb.

Brodie had Tony write out a gift certificate for a free Guided Kayak Tour. I mean seriously – isn’t that totally AWESOME!? Yah, I KNOW! Totally awesome. I wasn’t expecting Brodie to be so generous, but I am so thrilled that he so readily gave such support. GOOD DOG!

So, when you win this Raffle Prize at the Kili Gala on June 5th, make sure you bring a little something with you to thank Brodie, ok? OK!

Last night at yoga, it was strongly reinforced that I have limited flexibility.

Ok, I’ll be honest. I am just not flexible.

At all.

But that’s ok – I can do other things! I can probably hold Boat Pose for an hour. That’s gotta’ count for something, right? And I’m sure I can think of a situation where that particular talent could come in very handy. Pfffttt… flexibility. Who needs it!? Not like THAT would ever come in handy or anything.

Aaaaaaaanyway, I’ll just keep going back to yoga and doing my best. Practice is what it’s all about, right? Right!

SO! Today we are ONE MONTH AWAY from The Kili Gala!! Woooo hoooooooooo! Got your tickets yet? Drop me a line, and I’ll bring them, to you – only $20 a ticket, so bring some friends and come on out to help raise some dough for the Delta Hospice Society!

As you may very well know, The Kili Gala is featuring a really fab raffle draw with some great prizes to be won. I have decided that starting today, I will let you in on the secret of ONE raffle prize each day until the Gala on June 5th. That way you can see some of what’s available to be snagged at the Kili Gala. Good idea? I thought so! Heeeeeeeeeeeeeere we go!

I thought I’d open with a doozy. The first raffle prize I want to tell you about comes from my favourite restaurant in Vancouver – The Twisted Fork. This is a FABULOUS French bistro with amazing food, but without the pretension. It is owned and operated by three very gifted friends of mine, and I always recommend that people go see them at Twisted Fork for brunch, dinner, or just drinks.

The brunch, by the way…. SUPERB.

Oh! And one of my favourite things? Corey (the uber skilled –and damn cute– chef) creates a Sunday Night Supper for the end of each week. He creates a home-made meal for all of us who have no special home to go to on Sunday nights, for that all important supper. SUCH a great idea. Lasagna, meatloaf, pork chops… just those fabulous comfort foods, served with a salad, dessert, and a beer/wine. Love that idea!

ANYWAY… Twisted Fork has graciously donated a $100 GIFT CERTIFICATE to the Kili Gala Raffle Draw.

Seriously. $100 to one of the best restaurants in the City. They have a killer wine and beer selection too, so this could be a really, really great night out. Or maybe it could be a brunch for a whole handful of friends. It’s up to you!

Come on out to The Kili Gala, and grab some raffle tickets (a scant $2 each!), and enter to win the Twisted Fork gift certificate. This is one of the ones that *I* want to win, but since I can’t – I’ll wish YOU the best of luck!

…lucky jerk. Hooray for you!
