ETA: October 27 to November 2 Taking a week off, lots to do. Will be back next week :)
#1 ^This shelf is one of my favorite little spots in my home. /Oct 20
#3 My most embarrassing screename: HardcoreChic204
I liked hardcore music in the late nineties and 204 is my area code. My girlfriends dad told her she couldn't ICQ with me anymore because his work computer was getting flagged for hardcore p0rn chats. It was my screenname and Geocities site causing it and that is when I realized I was sending the wrong kinda message, lol. /Oct 21
#6 I got a newsletter from Tiny Feast this week, which mentioned that Danika Bock - owner of Tiny Feast, my favorite Winnipeg Shop - would be speaking at "PechaKucha". I looked into the event a bit, and with very little detail, just knew it could be the 'something nightlifey' I've been craving. I basically wanted some creative church.
"PechaKucha draws its name from the Japanese term for the sound of conversation ("chit chat"), it rests on a presentation format based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds -- keeping presentations concise and moving at a rapid and entertaining pace." (from the Playbill)
Jill and I went with an open mind (but confirmed that there would be no role playing required of us. Gccch, RP is just be horrible.), observed the room of hotties, bought drinks - yes, my kind of church serves Caesers - and found the perfect seat. The evening was just perfect :) Thirteen amazingly talented creatives shared 20 slides each (loved this format!) and each spoke on something they're passionate about. Next PechaKucha is on December 4th. Below, Danika is sharing about her first year in business. /Oct 24
#7 "Admitting your flaws does not make you more flawed. It just doesn't." - Elise Blaha Cripe via Elise Gets Crafty podcast ep.32 /Oct 24
