Dawning On Us


Deb: In the continuing theme of “Spring Posing as Fall”, the wonderful celebrations and encounters continue to mount. I had a perfect lunch with an old friend a few days ago, which really changed the way I was thinking about a number of things—for the better. Colin and I went to see Louis C.K. whom we love and who was doing all new material. Is there anything, I mean anything like laughing your guts out for two hours? Man! Barb, our friend Cheryl, and our dogs started a just-for-fun dog agility program and small breed off-lead day at a wonderful place in Toronto called Pawsway, and that was sweet and fun, and again with the laughter! Barb and I spent Saturday night at Nuit Blanche and, as Barb put it, it’s always one of the highlights of the year. More on that from Barb this week. I am about to embark on a trip to NYC this week with my husband and six other friends to celebrate two of our friends’ milestone birthdays. It is the autumn/spring that just keeps on giving and teaching and renewing. 

What could possibly top that you might ask? Well, something did. And it was certainly not a trip or a huge art event, but rather a small, casual lunch with a very special gal. We met Dawn! Yes, Dawn. Dawn from the blog, Dawn with the quiet wit and the always interesting intelligent point of view. Dawn was in town to see three Who’s Live shows that were in the surrounding areas of Toronto. I said to her that I thought it was amazing that she should design her hobby and travel for laughs. Dawn travels for laughs. She is a laugh collector. But like a lawyer with just one client, Dawn collects her laughs from one main source. Who’s Line and its improvisers. Not that she needed to prove her devotion to all things Who’s Line, but we walked her to her car at the end of the lunch to see her bumper stickers and her very special license plate. It is a combination of Mochrie and Sherwood and she came up with the perfect mash up: MOCHWD! MOCHWOOD. Dawn, don’t tell Brad that Colin got top billing! And in the continuing theme of laughter, Dawn had a bumper sticker that killed us. It says: “Save the trees. Wipe your ass with an owl!”


I was enthralled with Dawn’s Boston accent, one of my favourites. I collect accents as a hobby for trying out in the shower, and Dawn’s was perfect Bostonian. At discovering my passion for the accent, Dawn said, “What do you guys call a pair of green pants that aren’t jeans?” We said, “Khakis”. She said, “No,” reaching into her purse and pulling out her car keys, “these are Khakis!”  We laughed so hard. Try it. If you say khakis when describing your car keys, you have begun to master your Boston accent.

The visit with Dawn also inspired an idea for Barb and I to go to Boston and D.C. with our husbands in the spring and we will see Dawn then. We didn’t talk about anything too deep and the lunch was wayyyyyyyy too short, much like the coffee we had with Kate some months back, but it did its job. We connected. We wanted to spend more time with her and we will. She is a very special gal. And when we go to Boston, we will most certainly not lack for a parking space. After all, we can “pak a’ ca’ in the Hava’d ya’d!”

Thanks, Dawn, for being exactly who you are. It was our honour and pleasure.

Barbara: Now, I know you guys aren’t asking why our lunch with Dawn was so short, but I’m gonna tell you anyway. You know when you look forward to something special and you’re planning your day around that thing and then other non-negotiable things begin to pop up to sort of squish the first thing—the special one—like egg salad in a sandwich? Well, that happened to Dawn and us. First, there was the particular timing of the Pawsway schedule which meant we had to leave Dawn at 2pm. Then I got an audition at 2:45 for which I needed to drop Deb off and get to the middle of the city, which meant we now had to leave at 1:30. And then I got another audition right before our lunch, which almost threatened to compromise our start time! I’m telling you all this because normally this kind of loaded day would stress the hell out of me, but meeting Dawn was so … comfortable. Really, it felt like we’d done this a million times before. And maybe because we kinda have, communing every day on every kind of subject here on the blog. I want to thank you too, Dawn, for the talk, the laughs, and the friendship!

  2. So happy you all got together. And LOVE those bumper stickers, Dawn! So creative on the license plate. I love that you travel around for the Whose Live and Col/Brad shows, Dawn. I try to make it to as many as I can, but of course my classes and work make it difficult to travel very far. Love this post!

    2. I've seen enough shows that Colin has asked, "You're seeing us again? WE'RE tired of seeing us!"

  3. This made me smile and Dawn-I so understand, I love to laugh and no one brings that on better than the masters. I wish I had the resources to see the guys more, I've only seen the shows one time each but it left me smiling for days on end. And I have had the experience many times of meeting people you know only on line and finding them to be exactly as you hoped. It has happened many times for me via my Bonanza friends and FB friends. Especially my friend Lori who has been an inspiration to me and just finished a book that I can't wait to read for myself. It was a painful process for her but she did it.

    This post actually brought tears to my eyes and it breaks my heart that you will be in NY so close and yet so far. I only hope that I will get to meet you, Barb and Shalaka too some time soon. I hope over time I get to know more of the gals on this blog as well. It has been a special experience so far! Happy Fall on this October 1st! XOXO

    3. It helps GREATLY that Colin and Brad do a LOT of shows in the New England/New York area. These are BIG college states. They are also jam-packed with small towns with small local donation/benefactor run theaters. Both are perfect venues with a broad spectrum of audience demographics for the guys.

      As for Whose Live, when they hit my time zone, I'm off and driving!

      Delete
    4. Dawn-I'm in upstate NY (4-5 hr drive to NYC) if you ever want company to go to a show let me know?! I get really bogged down with school so a good laugh is a nice break for me. With being in school my funds are really minimal too I hope this will be worth it in the end. I love to travel and I hope to do a lot of it in a few years!

      I have a friend who lives in Cape Cod named Carol Trant and she was one of my Bonanaza friends. The first time we met in person was in Lake Placid, she almost got us kicked out of the restuarant for asking the waitress if she could have a fork. Sound it out with a Boston accent :D

      So Dawn where can we all get the owl bumper sticker, it's hilarious!

      Delete
    5. Mary I know about your passion for Bonanza-Little Joe (sigh) and I chuckled when you said "she's one of my Bonanza friends" because I thought, unless you know what that means it's a very funny line!

    6. You know what was incredible about that "first" gathering of fans? I remember being so nervous about meeting these people I knew only as names on a computer screen. But we had two ladies that came from England and Germany to share that weekend, and folks who came from all over the US. Most of them are still my friends today albeit just on FB now. But when I go to CA I still make sure and visit as many of them as I can. When I went to FL I spent a whole day with Ginger another Bonanza (Adam) fan. So you do become like a extended family in a sense. It's wonderful

  4. This lovely post about Dawn reminds me of my wonderful visit with you two. How lucky to meet the women of your blog. Love the adventure. I leave for 6 weeks tomorrow to read, paint and write in a cottage in Provincetown, Cape Cod. I can't wait to see the seasons change and visit areas around this lovely part of the NE. Maybe a trip to Nova Scotia as well. I, of course, will have internet so I can still read your wonderful adventures.

    2. Oh, wow! Six weeks in Provincetown, which is an art collection in its own right. SUCH a great idea for you, MadgeW. Have you done this before? You'll LOVE it. There's almost no way not to. I do hope you packed warm sweaters, though. As I'm sure you know, our weather can be... finicky. I hope you enjoy it as much as I think you will.

  5. Sounds like lots more fun going on. I would love to put many faces to names here. Pictures are never quite the same as in person experiences.

    The dog agility thing has always interested me unfortunatly my dog is a big clutz who seems completly unaware that he even has a back end. He would be absolutely helpless in this type of thing. He's even been known to become over enthusiastic just playing catch. I've seen him trip over his own paws ending up in a full somersault or run headlong into objects.....and he's suppossed to be a "smart" breed lol.

    This post truly was so lovely! I'm just in mad awe of the love-bubble you ladies have created here. I feel really privileged to have stumbled upon this place (which happened through my own deep love of Colin Mochrie and Who's Line...) and hearing the genuineness between everyone means a great deal to me. Through many recent life experiences that have to happen, I have become a bit...jaded? Which had never before been a part of who I was, and in truth some cynicism was necessary for me to learn (or else this world would have destroyed me, but here my cynicism can take a nap, or go practice it's scoff or whatever it is that cynicism goes and do's, because I can just appreciate what I read for what it is: honest.

    ya'll are great. And very attractive, btdubs, that is a great pic!

    Sincerely,
    Souz

    p.s. I'd been traveling for a month and a half, and really missed this place! I arrived home yesterday after 30 hours of travelling to get there, and have everything that needs to be done to do, and between that and the jet lag I'm so overwhelmed, BUT I also have a good month's back-log to catch up on. Just what I am going to need to for freak-out breaks!

They so outweigh the rest for me!

    1. People can get very creative, particularly in Massachusetts, which only allows a maximum of 6 letters/numbers on a plate. I'm jealous of New York state and Ontario, Canada, which each have 7 or 8 spaces. Seems like they're writing sentences on theirs! LOL

  23. Sounds like you all had a great time :-) And your positive outlook is so, so infectious!!

    The thing that touched me most is how you constantly mention laughing and laughter. Being able to connect through humour is (for me) one of the greatest gifts you can have. I think it's the best feeling in the world when you find someone else who's on that exact same level of humour as you - as soon as you discover that, you instantly connect on a deeper level. No matter your other differences.
    You can fake laughter, but I don't think you can fake a sense of humour. That's why I love humour, for allowing me to see a glimpse of the "real" person. Oh - and for being a great comforting tool and for always making me laugh my *ss off at a great comedy show :-)

  24. Wow. That's all I can say. (Yeah, right.)

    I want to tell all you folks here what a completely I'm-out-of-adjectives time I had this weekend. Meeting Barb and Deb was SUCH a highlight! SO much light, so much energy, and never will you feel more comfortable laughing and giggling with anyone on the planet than these two gals.

    Barb, you never mentioned you'd had an audition BEFORE lunch too! I'm SO happy you were able to shoehorn some time in for our lunch!

    Ladies, I thought I was going to be nervous when we met, because of the "We're gonna have lunch! Don't sound stupid! You can't delete and rewrite this one!" mentality I can sometimes not quell completely.

    Barb, I gotta tell you, you are an award-winning hugger, and you put me at ease INSTANTLY. I truly felt like I was meeting a long-lost friend, not one I'd never "met" before.
    Deb, your huge smile also reminded me I was meeting friends for lunch, not interviewing for anything, and we would have FUN.
    I can't explain fully to you both how much that meant to me.

    The rush I got in response to the whole "khakis" thing is why I want to accomplish the stand-up bucket list thing. WHOA. And it was just the best way I could think of to teach the Boston accent. It's not quite natural for me to say "pahk the cah in Hahvahd yahd" because it's an exaggeration. (Not MUCH of one, though.)

    Time DOES fly too quickly, and a Boston meet-up will be a necessity. I'll try to come up with a decent idea for food and such. There's gotta be SOMETHING to eat around here besides seafood. :) Hmmm... maybe an Irish pub?

    Laughter is, has been, and always will be the best medicine for me. The most effective treatment has always been Whose Line. Discovering these tours has been a literal life-saver. All the bonus meetings with the gentlemen has been SO much icing on the cake. SO much.

    I'm so fortunate to have been able to meet, have lunch with, and laugh with two beautiful frosting flowers.

    1. Dawn, I so agree about laughter being the best medicine, and Whose Line (and all the boys) is the real deal. I grew up watching Whose Line and it always made my day a bit brighter. Still does. I've met Colin, Brad, Ryan, Greg, Chip, Jeff, and Jonathan, and they were all so very sweet and kind and great conversationalists as well. They really are easy to talk to (once I got over the fangirl "OH MY GOD!!! OH MY GOD!!! IT'S THEM!!!" moment). Even got a kiss on the cheek from Jeff for my birthday last month! (Yes, I was blushing like crazy.)

  25. i am just going to repeat what everyone else has said here and thats it sounded like you had a fantastic time together . i live the car stickers .

    by the way , as I type RTE 1 ( Irish state TV ) is interviewing the Dad of a girl who committed suicide here due to cyber bullying , which my mom is listening to in the next room . that shows the sad and dangerous side of the net . it is a great lift for me to come here and meet really good people and also to read about people who met over the net and have had good times together both online and off .

    Link to merchandise advertising Colin love: http://www.cafepress.com/+colin-mochrie+gifts


    To dispel any feelings of creepiness you might have about the license plate, I want to assure everyone that I asked for and received permission from Colin, Brad, and their wives to do it. Deb's suggestion was "Shmock." I STILL get a good laugh out of that.
    Deb, Brad's seen it, of course. *LOL* He has even straightened out the plate after I apparently introduced it to one of those cement things on the ground in front when you pull into a parking space. You can't beat free adveritising.

    I was also able to finally meet a woman I have been talking to, starting with the messageboard on Colin's website, about seven years ago. Another prize-winning time spent with a friend I hadn't yet met. And a Whose Line fan? BONUS!

    Last highlight from the weekend (literally): I PLAYED MOVING BODIES WITH GREG PROOPS!!!!!! As the other funny men told me afterward, I FINALLY got up on stage with them.

    I have honestly never had a better experience, nay, TIME in my life than that of this past weekend. The smile on my face in the pic above says it all.

    As does this (I hope this link works):
