Thinklandia 2015

I was invited to participate again for Thinklandia 2015. I did a presentation last year and this year I was asked to host/moderate a panel for the PERSPECTIVE evening and have a conversation with with Bif Naked, Rae Spoon and Jason Verners.

I was a little nervous as I haven’t been doing a lot of public speaking lately but I wrote a little introduction speech. Practiced a few times and when I hit the stage it was like riding a bike. I had a lot of fun …

The night was SO COLD that we all wore our jackets on stage. I even found a Snuggie backstage and wore that so I could stay warm …

I took her to Be Love for lunch. 11934634_1494991580817067_113803428_nAnd then we wandered around downtown poking into different shops. I also took her into the old Sarah’s Place location which is now my friend Honor’s jewelry shop Tonic. It’s always weird going back into that old space but it also feels good to see Honor’s shop thriving. 🙂

I have been selling my vintage goodies at local vintage fairs and in a few weeks I will be going to Calgary with some of the staff of Tattoo Zoo for the Calgary Tattoo Convention AND to top it all off I am the shop manager at Tattoo Zoo. It feels good. 🙂

In other news Gerry and I have been working with the city (with the help of Teri from Oscar & Libby’s) on an art project for the intersection of Fort/Blanshard. It’s an exciting time …

In other other news Fergus got a nice fall haircut from Top Dog. They do such a good job on him … he was so fluffy and smelled amazing until he found a dead otter at the park and rolled in it. Ha ha. What a jerk.
