Dinner with my #1 fan
Location: Charters Settlement, NB
So I to kick off the tour, I took my #1 fan out to dinner. It was 11 pm, so our choices were limited, so it ended up being The Diplomat. We both decided that to new people in town, "The Dip" is considered a high-end restaurant. We laughed because as long-time Frederictonians, we knew better :)
So as we go in, a waitress knows my #1 fan and they converse. As we sit down, my #1 fan turns to me and says the line of the night "I'm kind of a big deal".
So how did I pick my #1 fan? First, it had to be someone who wasn't also a friend... and my fans are usually wonderful people, so we end up friends in the end.
So several years ago, my #1 fan managed to look up my old 454-PIMP number and call me. I was in the middle of moving so we weren't able to meet up.
Then later, as I was walking down Dundonald St, a car stopped at a light suddenly erupted into screams of "oh my god. Pimp Tea?". My #1 fan gave me a great big hug, while holding up traffic :) My #1 fan got a Super Dude shirt, a CD and some stickers and made it back in time for their apartment warming party.
After dropping off #1 fan back at home, I went dancing at The Phoenix to the sounds of DJ Chris Carson (who used to take the school bus with me back in the day). I also ran into James Boyle of Forward Music Group who wanted me to let you know to buy the new Grand Theft Bus CD and that his company has expanded into graphic design and merch making. I also ran into old tour mates circa 2004 of DJ Scout and Rory Borealis.
