Blind Item #1 - The Fish Continues

 Hey I've been reading your site a lot lately and my interest has been piqued by the blinds about a man and a fish.  I have an interesting story for you.  I've lived in Vancouver, BC, since 1998.  I'm a makeup artist and have worked on numerous television shows that have filmed here since 1999. 

You probably won't believe this since it's the classic "friend of a friend of a friend" story but I figured I'd share it anyway.

In the year 2000 I got work in the makeup department for a show.

My supervisor was a woman with whom I formed a close friendship.  Even years after the show ended we would text and Facebook message one another almost every day.

So in early 2011 she sent me the most hilarious and bizarre text about something her cousin supposedly witnessed.  Her cousin, who passed in 2015 in a car crash, was a celeb-chaser (before you ask, no, she did not literally chase them and her hobby was not related to her accident, nor was she a paparazzi).  She would, however, consult her friend, who ran a "celebrity-tracking" twitter account to determine the whereabouts of celebs in the hopes she could spot them and possibly get autographs that she could then sell.  I've always withheld judgement because she worked two jobs and still struggled to make ends meet.

She heard that this A+ list mostly movie actor was filming at the Vancouver Convention Centre.  She lived really close by at the time so she jumped in her car and was there in about five minutes. She was too late, though, and only caught a glimpse of him as he departed the scene, but she saw which car he got in and followed it for blocks until his driver pulled into the lot of the IGA on Robson.

Apparently the actor waited in the car and the driver got out and went into the store.  There was somebody else who remained in the car with the actor but she wasn't sure who it was.  Probably a bodyguard.

Apparently the actor looked anxious in the car, he was like sort of bouncing up and down in his seat.  The driver came back with only a white paper package in his hand, which he started unwrapping before he even got the door open.  It was some sort of whole fish.  Our actor rolled his window down just far enough to grab the fish but she was unable to see what he did with it because the driver got in and quickly sped out of the parking lot.

I thought my friend was totally bullshitting me but the blinds I've been reading lately have really made me start to wonder if she was telling the truth.
