Celebrity Sighting: Joan Jett

Calgary Stampede week started last July 4th till the 13th. And with the celebration of Stampede comes free breakfast, rodeo and concert shows. Some employees are allowed to wear their cowboy dress/shirt and hat to work.

July 10: We had Joan Jett and The Blackhearts coming through security. They are the band who made the song "I love rock and roll" popular. I didn't really recognized them at first, but I knew they were musicians immediately as I was going through two of their bags. And they were really nice people. No fuss.

...I love rock n roll
So put another dime in the jukebox, baby
I love rock n roll
So come an take your time an dance with me....
I'm sure we will be seeing a lot more celebrity this summer time.


I totally forgot about the Stampede week when I enrolled my kids to daycamps. So we didn't go to the Stampede during the free kids day or any other day.

Oh well, there's always the next time.

apply nga ako dyan. one of my wishes is to find a stable job, di ba? hehe... can you carry a cam with you to work?

Saan na ang picture?

Hi Cess, Evi and Raquel
No, we can't carry camera with us, and we are not allowed to take pictures at the security area. So you'll just have to take my word for it as I can't provide proof. Asar no?

And Evi, we are always hiring! And in Calgary, you can be choosy since you'll see "now hiring" signs all over the city.
