Vancouver or bust!

I’m leaving for my Canadian speaking tour this morning! Here’s my schedule, as a reminder:

Boobquake & Its Aftershocks

The pub nights are up in the air (apparently one of the planned places closed, whoops), but I’ll announce where we’re going via Twitter as soon as I know.

Well, that’s assuming I get there at all. Apparently it’s snowing all between Seattle and Vancouver. Gulp. Leaving early and driving slowly…

    Since you’re talking about Boobquake while you’re there, I think “Vancouver and bust” would be more accurate.

  2. 2

    Is it possible for you to get a business to sponsor one of your talks in the future?If so, how much does it cost?

  3. 3

    Pity. My boyfriend lives in Victoria, I’m sure we’d both love to see you, if either of us were in mainland BC for the occasion.

    If you get a chance, check out the new Beaty Biodiversity Museum at UBC. They have a complete blue whale skeleton hanging in the main display area.

    I’m stoked to see you this afternoon, Jen!

    If you get a chance, check out the blue whale skeleton in UBC’s new Beaty Biodiversity Museum. It’s pretty amazing.

    Drive carefully, Jen!

    Agh, I tried so hard to make it but I couldn’t get there!I was on a SFU-bound bus but it stopped half-way there! They said it would take me another hour to get there… blahhh…. I was in transit for 3 hours for nothing… :(

    Damn! I couldn’t make it to the SFU talk either.Oh well, it’s probably for the better; I have a twenty page essay due tomorrow and I should really focus on that. If I were religious, I’d consider this awful weather to be some sort of divine intervention for my benefit.

    I am very curious to find out how the SFU talk went, if it went at all. All roads and transit to the campus was shut down and all classes were cancelled, and everybody who was already there by about 3:30 today will be spending the night there. Are you OK, Jen? Let us know!

    All roads and transit WERE shut down. Where’s the edit button?

    I wish you well for Vancouver (retroactively, anyway) but I have to say I’m more interested in the bust. ;)…why didn’t I think of that earlier? D:
