Note: what follows is the information as was printed upon a sheet which was included in the gift bags as a way to support and thank the various vendors, suppliers, helpers and whatnot for the wedding and build their businesses by fostering community. (pdf attached for your convenience).
For many of these sections (party, giftbag, shrine, pottery etc) there are additional posts and artifacts. As such, this isn’t meant to be comprehensive, just the way the goodness was shared and printed, quite literally the morning of the party with very few modifications in this form.
Must not forget to say a thousand and more thank you’s for all that post cards, envelopes, letters, vinyl, drawings, and other sentiments and sweet thoughts which awaited me upon my return from Jamaica.
Really needed the affection & inspiration as I received some extremely saddening and frustrating news upon my return.
Really need to catch a break here but with exceptional friends like you, I’ll keep on putting on my big boy pants and trying to rise to each challenge the world throws at me.
I want to thank you again for taking the time to present at the last Speaker Series event for the XXXX.
You are truly an amazing presenter. You have a way of engaging the audience that is uncommonly effective. I noticed that no one left the room while you were speaking and people were standing at the back…relatively transfixed.
This is the second time I have had the opportunity to hear you speak about the little Vancouver social media company that has become an internationally-recognized product with amazing growth.
Really inspirational. And, as a media trainer and presentation trainer, I learned a lot about how to engage an audience by simply telling relevant stories.
Again, thank you for taking the time. It is really appreciated.
Hustling to a bus, Uncle Weed ends the festive period with vaporization session and recounts highlights, hi-jinks and life remixes from 2010 including gut surgery, True North Media House social reporting at the Olympics including Olympic Outsider podcasts, Subpop Records, Hockey Hall of Fame, SXSW, Komasket Music Festival, UW40 party, Halloween at the Waldorf hotel, visits from friends, and then a decompression road trip to Nelson with forays to ferries, hot springs and local organic beers.
Ends with clumsy thanks to the Chooglers who had my back during the past year. Musical interludes including an skat/vocal rendition of a Charlie Parker tune by Nico from Savage Blade.
