Two vitally important scraps of information:
1. George Stroumboulopoulos is single and has two cats.
2. The Kyoto Protocol comes into effect tomorrow.
What do these two things have to do with each other? Well, David Suzuki will be on Strombo’s show tonight to talk about Kyoto. And maybe talk about me, and about how George is single, and how I’m single, and how we both love cats and Adidas sneakers, and stuff?
I told David about my not-so-secret crush on Strombo.
“But I thought you liked Simon Whitfield?” he asked.
“No, no. He’s engaged,” I told him. “George is so smart and cute. He’s 32, he has two cats and he’s single. So can you say hi to him for me tonight?”
“Is he a friend of yours?” asked David.
“No. I’ve never met him,” I said.
“Okay. I’ll tell him Sarah sends her deepest affections.”
Awesome! I’ve got David Suzuki pimping me to George Stroumboulopoulos. Although I suspect he’s just humouring me, I’ll be watching the show closely, just in case.
Strombo's biggest fans: Sarah, Jane, Hilary and Claire Marchildon (absent from photograph is Anne Marchildon, who does not own a TV and subsequently is not a Strombo fan).
