Thursday Morning Link Fest: So Little Time Left

Comments 7 by Rebecca Bollwitt

I wasn’t sure I was going to post at all today, really since yesterday I had a couple “meaty” entries. However, there are still links and information floating around so what kind of Miss604 would I be if I didn’t share with the masses.

  • Fellow Blogathon’er, Raul just celebrated 500 blog posts which is a great milestone. Head over to partake in any of the three mini-games/exercises.
  • I first heard about the “bad sweater party” on Victoria’s blog, but I’ve just learned about the one at the Commodore tomorrow night. “Party goers will be decked out in their ‘best’ Christmas sweaters. The dress code is mandatory. It is the uglier the better.” [News1130]. Man, that looks like SUCH a good time! It starts at 9:00pm and tix are $20.
  • The Vancouver 2010 Olympic events schedules have been released. Men’s ice hockey to compete against Northern Voice 2010 for Saturday slot.
  • Luongo is the 2007 goalie of the year in Goalie’s World Magazine. Now if he’d just stop by and say hi to me in Yaletown, where I keep spotting him…
  • Don’t know what to get for the person who has everything this holiday season? How about something that lets them give to those less fortunate with a Give Meaning gift card.
  • Celebrate winter solstice in your area by taking part in this luminous event happening all across downtown (Eastside, Strathcona, Chinatown, Granville Island, Yaletown, and the West End):

    On December 21st come celebrate the return of the sun with a glowing constellation of lanterns shining in six Vancouver neighbourhoods. These six little festivals are community-based and reflect the unique nature of each neighbourhood. Intimate and accessible, each invites participation and each holds special attractions. [SecretLantern]

  • Also, if you’re itching to get up to the mountains and carve up some of that snow that’s been falling like mad, check out the “Snow Reports” Facebook application for brief summaries of temps and base levels on pretty much any mountain in North America.

    *All contests are open to residents of Canada only, unless otherwise stated. Contest timelines are published on each individual post along with entry methods. Some contests may only be open to those 19 years of age and older. Winners are announced on the contest blog posts. Contest policy »

      Well, okay maybe the drop Vista banner ad thingy was just as cool.

      Glad you decided to post. I would have missed it otherwise. I really enjoy reading your daily blog postings at work. It’s a nice diversion from the daily grind and relevant to Vancouverites in general regardless of age. Found your blog through netchick. Saw you at the Giants game last Saturday. Wanted to say hi but felt a bit awkward as I did not want to appear “stalker like”. I hope you have a great holiday season with your family and loved ones.

      Really dug Justin Long’s character on “Ed”. Ah, Ed …

      Life after Ed as the Mac ain’t so bad … it’s not really typecasting, is it?

      Aww thanks so much Rebecca, you are such a sweetheart! Much appreciated – link love *sigh* 😀 Thanks, many thanks!

      @ Charlene – one afternoon this summer, I was walking with one of my very best friends down Davie Street and I was like “OMG, those look like Rebecca and John… I should stop and say hi and introduce myself… oh wait, they’re eating ice cream… wait… they’re walking fast… oh no no no… they’re GONE!” … they walked faster than I could.

      So I didn’t introduce myself 🙁 Moral of the story — next time, even if you seem “stalker like”, just go and say hi! Those two folks (Rebecca and John) are awesome, I am sure if I had been able to catch up to them, we would’ve ended up having a margarita at some bar on Davie.
