Here's sort of how the conversation went.

PretzelCorps: Hi, Colin Mochrie?

Colin: *Smiles, shrugs, makes a funny face* Yup!

Then all 4 of us shake hands with him.

PretzelCorps: Man, were gonna be so popular now!

Colin: Haha, I wouldn't use THIS

PretzelCorps: So are you filming something in town or something?

Colin: Yah, some news thing for CBC. October 4th, 830am is when its on.

Me: Is that a weekend?

Colin: *looks over at CBC guy* No, its a monday.

Me: Aw nuts, I'm at work on weekdays. I'll miss it.

CBC Guy from table: Just tape it!

Me: Yah, I do have a VCR, I guess I could tape it. But I doubt I'll be able to find blank vhs tapes to use.

Our Friend Dan: Yah, fat chance.

Me: Yahh, nuts. Well, I guess I could tape over my porn. I mean, it is Colin Mochrie afterall, he's worth taping over my porn

Colin: *looks at me wierd....*......

*awkward silence*

PretzelCorps: Well, it was nice meeting you! Welcome to Winnipeg, and hopefully you have a good night!

*another round of handshakes and then we walk back to our table*
------
Addendum.

Inbetween the 'oh we'll be popular' and the 'what are you filming' part, there was some 'so whats it like being famous?' stuff.

Danny's reporting is slightly off, here's the extended version I remember:

PretzelCorps: Excuse me?

CM: *looks*

PretzelCorps: Could I shake your hand?

CM: *Smiles, shrugs, makes a funny face* Yup!

Then all 4 of us shake hands with him.

PretzelCorps: Man, we're gonna be so popular now!

Colin: Haha, I wouldn't use THIS

Dan (not Danny): Do you ever get used to it? (ie: getting pestered)

PretzelCorps: Yeah, it must get annoying.

CM: Well, ah, it's not too bad...

Dan (not Danny): So are you filming something in town or something?

CM: Yah, a spot on Men With Brooms for the CBC. October 4th, 830am is when its on.

Danny: Is that a weekend?

CM: *looks over at CBC guy* No, its a monday.

Danny: Aw nuts, I'm at work on weekdays. I'll miss it.

CBC Guy: Just tape it!

Danny: Yah, I do have a VCR, I guess I could tape it. But I doubt I'll be able to find blank vhs tapes to use.

Dan (not Danny): Yah, fat chance.

Danny: Yahh, nuts. Well, I guess I could tape over my porn. I mean, it is Colin Mochrie afterall, he's worth taping over my porn.

*prolonged awkward silence*

Previously unspoken fellow named Sean (swiftly): Well it was nice meeting you!!

CM: Yeah, enjoy yourselves!

*another round of handshakes and then we walk back to our table*


I hadn't even heard Danny's awkward-comment; they had to tell me about it afterward. For all I knew, we were talking normally and then all of the sudden in the middle of an awkward silence inexplicably. I was wondering why he gave me such a funny look.

But yes, Danny did actually say that to Colin Mochrie.
