the geek in the pink

so, last night...after MUCH anticipation Jason Mraz rolled into Toronto for a show at the Kool Haus.

Unfortunately for me there were a couple hurdles to my enjoyment of the show:
1. I was alone...no one could/wanted to come with me.
2. Jason didn't get on stage until 9.30 and i was TIRED!
3. (and most importantly) i was sick.

I think I caught something at conference last week - but, coming back to work this week - EVERYONE was ill.

Tuesday my sickness came back full force.

I couldn't last through the entire performance. I was so tired i was sitting on the floor in the corner. I wasn't watching the show (couldn't see him from where i was on the floor) - so, at 10.45 i decided to go home.

this morning - called in sick.

BUT, i did get to meet mr a-z again..and, this time i got to take a much better picture than the one i had before.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND, i got to hear Sleeping To Dream live...truly awesome.

.:mp3:. jason mraz - sleeping to dream
.:mp3:. jason mraz - you and i both
NOTE: both songs are the live versions from "tonight, not again")


van city all stars

how to do vancouver in 1 day:
go for work.

damn...i really love that city.
it's GREEN! there are TREES!
cars STOP for people trying to cross the street!
they tell me the coldest winter day is 10 degrees. and they get maybe 2 snowfalls per year.

where do i sign up?

i could definitely see myself living there.

aaaaaaaaaaaaand we stayed in a super-posh hotel (the opus).


it's official

i'm old.

i'm 30 and an hour and a half.

1:30 and i can't get to sleep.....


upcoming week of madness

and, so it begins.

sbf was off all week on vacation. lb left for a 2 week vacation on wednesday.
i was swamped! to put it mildly.

i'm glad the work week is done...but, now things are really going to get interesting.

tomorrow is jim & laura's wedding. b/c james is in the wedding party, we are going down early to help them set up for the reception. how early? i have no idea. after i do what i gotta do at home tonight...i'll have to haul my butt down to james' place so, i'm there when i need to be there (whenever that is!).

sunday - brunch with tim & christina....relaxed! thank you!

monday - very exciting...james and i are celebrating our first year together. august 1st 2004 we had our very first date! we went to the ROM - then for dinner (thai), then we went to see toots & the maytals in nathan phillips square - then we went for drinks. great first date. great first year. (*que sappy smile*)

tuesday - coldplay (but, at least i don't have to go to work!)

wednesday - the dreaded birthday!

thursday - mercifully nothing planned (going to keep it that way, too!)

friday - taste of the danforth. was fun last year...

saturday - going to a taping of a design game show...then meeting up with james for a birthday dinner with him

sunday - flying out to vancouver with sb. going to see the virgin store we're taking over. then going to see the white stripes!

monday - flying back to TO. getting in around 11pm or midnight

tuesday - work (half day, i think)

geez...i'm tired already.

is my shuffle finished recharging yet? i need to hear some soothing tunes.




virgin blogger

bon jour mes amis!

welcome to my blog.

just a little space for me to do my ranting, thinking, and rambling...

so, to start...let's say this.

my 30th b-day is coming up. a birthday i've been dreading since i hit 26.
but, the closer it looms in the distance (less than a week now) the easier it has become.

why? i realized i'm not really into my birthdays...it can come and go and i really wouldn't care.
just an excuse to get the people i care about in a room and eat some food.

it will be extra hard this year - because my mom won't be around...but, i'm trying not to think about it. we'll see how that goes.

thanks for listening.
will post more later.
