11. she received an honourary doctorate at my school last year
Unfortunately, I didn't get to be at the ceremony because it was the fall convocation, and I got my grad degree in the spring. (So I don't get to talk about "being onstage with Diana Krall", alas!) Husband-to-be Elvis Costello was in the crowd, beaming happily.

She chose the occasion to play her new song "Departure Bay" for the audience. A very genuine person and exactly the right choice for a convocation guest, because she was so appreciative and enthusiastic -- her late mother went to the University of Victoria as a mature student and was much admired on campus.

Friends around town have seen her at the local hardware store, served her in restaurants, etc., and apparently she is still a Vancouver Island person even with international acclaim.
