You deserve more

As promised here is another fashion-y photo thing I did with my silly make-up artist/designer friend Marie-Laure. She liked this image so much she decided to use it on her business card. More to come later, promise. There is much to share: a special trip to Toronto, my new camera, lots of surprise presents in the mail, some project planning and some painting...gah! I'm a bad bad blogger, but I hope you'll stick around. Merci les amis!

Good morning world

Once again I've become a lazy blogger, eh. It happens. Tomorrow I leave for a most exciting voyage to Toronto to visit the wondrously amazing V! I couldn't be more excited; I haven't left this city since my trip to Guatemala in February. It's definitely time for a mini vacation. Last night R and I had our Dutch friend Mark over with his girlfriend for a night of sushi and Saki (which I just tried for the first time and must admit to not liking it one bit, maybe it was the brand?). R and I are going to start planning our next vacation which is at the end of September and we're going to try and make it a bike trip going from Montreal to NYC! We talked to Mark because, being Dutch, he's quite the expert biker, although more so then most Dutch. He's biked around the world, thousands and thousands of kilometers! He's also the founder of an amazing site called Stay Nomad which helps people find sponsors and connections for trips they're planning. We got to talking about ways we could get sponsors for our trip, what we're going to need gear-wise, and how long it'll take. In lieu of explaining all of the details I'll simply say it's something we need to begin working on now if we want to make it possible. Mark said it would probably take us about 6-7 days to bike there. Once in NYC we'll stay for about a week and instead of taking another week-long trek home we'll take the train. I'm so terribly excited already! More details to come later, in the mean time check out Stay Nomad, it's a really great website.

Guess who I saw in concert tuesday night? Stevie Wonder! Montreal has a really big jazz festival that's going on right now and Stevie Wonder opened the festival with a free concert outside in down town Montreal. It.was.amazing. He played everything, I mean everything! All his hits, and he had so much energy and was so charismatic with the crowd. At the end of the concert they put together a Michael Jackson tribute medley and then it started to rain but no one left; everyone started dancing and singing along. There are some things that we all know by heart, I think music is one of them.
