After taking a quick day off yesterday to travel to Seattle I’m back in gear although I feel as though I’m missed a million and one things while away for even such a short time. In order to get myself (and readers) caught up, here’s a good ‘ol patented Miss604 link fest.
All of the Vancouver-area photos in today’s post were submitted to the Miss604.com Flickr Group.
I forget to add this to my talk last week but here’s a note about how Canada’s “brand” is second to Australia’s [News1130]
Top 4 places to play pool in Vancouver [EricsEstimate]
John asks: What is gym etiquette anyway?

You may have heard by now that November 20th was deemed “kick a ginger day” by a group on Facebook. It encouraged targeted bullying of red-headed children and has caused quite the stir while being supposedly inspired by South Park [CBC]. With two nephews with lovely red locks, this sort of thing hurts me and hits home, however I’m not sure blaming social media or a TV show is the answer – just ask Marilyn Manson.
Tyler asks if political correctness has gone out the window this year as more places are owning up to saying “Merry Christmas” instead of Happy Holidays. I don’t know, I mean there are many holidays this time of year for numerous nations and denominations so some saying just easily lump them all into one, however some people get very particular about their Merry Christmases.
Pete Quily has an impressive and thorough comparison of social media tools used by Ladner and Robertson during Vancouver’s civic election campaigns.
Derek Miller took a quick trip across the Albion Ferry – something that you should try and do (not during rush hour) before the Golden Ears Bridge takes over.
Tawcan takes his first backcountry ski trip of the season. I’m craving the snow already.

Finally, after a Waves Coffee kiosk opens up in Stadium Skytrain station, an Ethical Bean will be replacing the old florist shop at Granville. This makes me wonder if the Miss604 poll I did over a year ago had any bearing when I asked my readers if they’d like to see coffee shops at Skytrain stations.
Happy Tuesday everyone and remember, only three more sleep until AC/DC Day in Vancouver.
