I’m pretty behind on a lot of bloggy things and since we’re up to SO much within the next week I’ll compose a little list below of links and activities.
I met today with a student from a university back East that is writing her thesis on blogging (along the lines of a why do you blog kinda thing). She’s looking for a couple more bloggers to interview so with a lack of a list off the top of my head I pointed her in the direction of my blogroll. I’m sure she’ll gather some really interesting perspectives on the medium and I’m pretty excited about being a part of something like that.
Thursday is my father’s birthday so I’ll be posting the mandatory sappy, cheesy, dedication to the man that taught me so much including knowledge of local history and how to kick ass in rugby.
As previously noted, John and I were thinking about attending Northern Voice. We’ve been able to purchase his admission for both days, and I’ll just be going on Saturday. We never did hear back about volunteering, but splitting it up like this helped us save a little money at least.
Sunday there is a podcaster meetup [audihertz], a highlight being that a host of the Canadian Podcast Buffet will be in attendance. Unfortunately, we’re not sure if we’ll go – even though we run our share of podcasts. February 25th is our 1st wedding anniversary and the reason why I’ve also taken Monday off work. I’m really interested in going but since the first part of our weekend is being monopolized by a blogging conference… so an afternoon of watching hockey, drinking wine, having a nice dinner and celebrating alone with my husband seems a little more appealing.
On a side note, lacking a laptop of my own, I have the feeling that I’ll be the only person at Northern Voice with a note pad and paper. Also, the following weekend I’ll be in Victoria for a girls weekend. Hopefully I’ll be able to have some access (local internet cafe or hijacked hotel computer) to do a blog post and post some pics of the hijinx. I promise, neither my sister or I will be shaving our heads.

A round of beer for you and John, on me, for the opportunity to raise a glass with you in celebration of your first anniversary.
Watch out Vancouver Island !
jenny used an exclamation mark, haha. like she ever gets excited.
Mark: You just said the magic word, “beer”.
Bradley: You just haven’t seen her that way around you because, well, you don’t excite her as much as I do 😛
I’ll leave my laptop at home – it’s too big and the battery drains too quickly to be of any use in a conference situation…and I’ve got these really nice new pens that I’ve been really enjoying lately – so I’ll be on the pad & paper team too. Now there’s two of us.
Glad you’re going to be making it to the conference.
You two definitely won’t be the only ones. My laptop is dying, but I’ve been putting off getting one until I know for sure about the rumored new Mac laptop (which is supposed to use flash memory instead of a hard drive and may cure cancer, for all we know).
Also glad you are making it to the conference. Hope I can find my way; the UBC campus is still a relatively new territory for me.
Jeremy – I hear ya on the pen thing. I have a thing for “cool” pens, even tough that means (as a left-handed person) I will probably end up smudging the cool-pen-ink all over my page and hand in the process of writing.
Actually – I’m a lefty too, so the pens I’m talking about are “lefty-approved”. I’ll try to remember to pack an extra one for Northern Voice.
These pens are smudge-free and so smooth.
