- Maple doughnuts filled with chicken confit (omfg, amazing)
- Open Bar
It was also filled with moments that make you kind of pleased, somewhat inexplicably...like:
- "Oh, there's Luba Goy...she looks exactly the same as in 1991..."
- Hey, Strombo remembers me nearly hitting him with my bicycle!
- Being taught that tearing the bottom off a cupcake and placing it on top makes an amazing icing sandwich.
But then, out of the corner of my eye, I see Peaches...
In my super classy and subtle ways of networking I sidle up and point to her banana purse.
"I like your banana bag."
We discuss the upsides of banana shaped and coloured bags. Then in a moment of awkward silence I can't help but mention.
My parents are big fans...
She laughs. "Seriously?"
I nod solemnly. "Seriously."
There is an awkward silence.
"I'm also a big fan of your music."
It's at this point, when I'm wondering if I should just throw up on myself to provide a more dignified exit... I'm pretty sure Peaches hates me.
Feels bad man.
But instead of vomiting, I ask:
"...So...how is everything going for you at TIFF? You have a movie playing soon, right?"
"Yea, it's playing on Thursday, you should come to the after party."
Having your parents ask to join...?
