I have so many mini topics to cover that if I were to write a blog post for each people would get annoyed about how I’m too prolific and my feed would swamp their readers and it would just be a mess. On that note, if you’d like to simply get my feed (without Flickr photos too) you can grab it here, or stay with the main feed, cause it’s pretty fun.
The EPIC Sustainable Living Expo is “Vancouver’s largest green consumer show and eco-marketplace”. It will be taking place April 18-20th at the Vancouver Convention Centre (Canada Place) and will feature a personal hero of mine, Mike Holmes, whom I hope will one day agree to oversee the construction of Casa de Bollwitt (a gal can dream). Mike will be hitting the main stage on Saturday the 19th so be sure not to miss his green construction and reno advice along with the oodles of other workshops and demos that will be featured at the show.
In West End news, if you haven’t been to the Cupcake store lately you may not know that due to its popularity a slough of other sweet-related shops have opened up around it along Denman between Comox and Davie ie. that new chocolate shop and the revival of Cookies by George. Well with the closing of Primo Gelato on the corner of the alley right before Davie (just after Pendrell), it turns out the Cupcake shop has relocated to this prime piece of real estate leaving Cookies by George in their dust.
On another sweet note, the viral marketing company out of Toronto, Matchstick, has another promotion. They’re the company that supplied John and I with such items as our Nokia 6682 cell phones and the Samsung T10. This time around it’s all about premium chocolate, so if you’re a female blogger in Vancouver and you have a sweet tooth, simply fill out their survey, they’ll then contact you and mail you the Dove “Pleasure Kit”, oh my!
I happened to catch on the radio yesterday that REM is coming to town, and Modest Mouse is opening up for them, AND they’ll be playing Deer Lake Park. The only thing that could make this any better were to be if the cupcake store had a booth setup at the concert.
Modest Mouse – Missed the Boat
As it turns out, my husband is feeling under the weather and since he was so good to me when I was ill in March, I will be staying home tonight to make him tea, cook him some dinner, and check “buy” on the Canucks pay per view. If you ordered the game on March 17th when Shaw had the outage in the 3rd period, you will be getting a refund. I got my bill last night (which should have included that day) but apparently they’re applying the credit on the billing cycle that starts March 24th.
Finally, I went to get my passport yesterday morning. I met my mother at 7:00am and we headed over to Sinclair Centre. We took the elevator up to the second floor, got a ticket from reception, and about 20 minutes later both of our applications were in. If you need to apply for your passport or renew, I would highly suggest that now is the time to do it.
That’s it for now, happy (sunny) Thursday everyone!
