Some snaps from around the block:
Smelling the flowers.
I think I forgot to mention it earlier, but last Thursday I was a presenter at Rain City Chronicles. I told the story of my bonkers journey down the wedding aisle. It was a fabulous night of story and song, and I feel super honoured to have had the chance to contribute to this great Vancouver arts event.
In family news, this past weekend my sister came to town for an (all too brief) visit. I was so excited because on Friday she finally got to come see one of my gigs. It was the first time that she and her betrothed got to see me on stage, doing my joke thing.
I also got to interview her last night on Vancouver Co-op Radio. If you want to listen to the show, you can do so here.
This week it is much of the same – stand-up tomorrow and Wednesday, some volunteer work, and hopefully many opportunities to run about in the sunshine.
What about you all?
For my part, I hope all of you are awash in beauty and light.

Is that Vancouver? It looks like a pretty cool city.
Yes! It’s a pretty rad place to live. :)

Thank you! And I know, isn’t it AMAZING? I am so, so happy!
Absolutely amazing! here we were worried about the weather and having nowhere to run and now every morning is awesome! oh and bbq’n of course ;)
Awesome photos, I’m usually allergic to the internet cat pic but that one is golden. I think he is saying, ‘Yes? What of it?’
Haha, that is exactly right! Nymeria is a very, very discerning individual. :)
So good to hear of all your fantastic plans. My week will leave me looking much like your beloved kitty – all business. My job is demanding and this week is no exception. Alas, I look forward to each day!
Nymeria sends her best wishes! I too hope you have a brilliant (albeit busy) week. Your positive energy is infectious! xx

I am sooooo white it is true. But I have to be careful not to burn! Flowers in my neighbourhood. :)
Your business cat looks oh so serious! Congrats on being a presenter:)
Oh so very serious! And thank you! xx
Wow! So many exciting things! Chinatown Night Market sounds fascinating and I’m sure the crowd loved the story. Also, your family is astounding (I listened to some of the radio show)! You girls are doing amazing things and all so differently….I would love to be at your family get togethers!
Our family get togethers are a total hoot – bring your dancing shoes and warm up those pipes, because it’s all singing and dancing, all the time. I know you will fit right in! :)
And thank you! I had such a fun time telling my story. And my sister truly in an inspiration. I don’t know what I would do without her! x
Vanessa, I love everything about this post–all the way from the “business cat” to the tulips! You know what would be great? If you could have someone tape a bit of your stand up and post it on the blog! I would love to see it and I’m sure so would your other readers! Think about it, please! :)
Bella, YES! I promise that I will do this. I have a couple of older videos floating about the joint, but the next show of mine that my husband comes to, he has promised that he will shoot a video.
And thank you! Myself and Nymeria thank you! :)
Beautiful. Tulips are my favorite flowers!
They are mine too!
