still lying in bed on the last day of my holiday..
i'm back to work tomorrow, and that's ok because it has been a spectacular time off.
you know those times when you travel
and you sort of say to yourself, lets just giver.
that was like this.
i breakfasted with friends nearly every morning,
saw a couple of matinee movies,
mid day beers at the beach,
late night beers at friends..
and so forth.

so good!

got back super late last night from bowen island.
sheree plett played a show there over looking the ocean,
and i met the crazy grieving guy from grey's anatomy that shot all the doctors.

i went swimming in seemingly the cleanest bit of ocean i've seen in a while. so clear and gorgeous.
now i have salt water hair. kinda messy. dirty. chic?

i have to go and get some coffee and breakfast. and it's 1pm!
oh holidays.

hey there.
miss me?
i claim summer-itis as my defense for not posting anything up here in a while.
this past week, count them, 4 summery bbq's, dinners, and backyard concerts!
this little mouse has been busy as a bee and happy as a clam and nearly as tanned as snooki.
can i make a jersey shore reference, in all classiness?
just for any clarification of my reputation, i've never even seen ONE episode thank you very much.
but that orange lady pops up everywhere!

so i'm sitting here, day one of my week holiday nearly complete,
feeling pretty good, and relaxed to the max.
four more lovely days to go.
and yet, an overnight on bowen island is still ahead!

some sad news,
i'm on the cusp of selling my bike.
this lady was not deigned for the tininess of those tires.
i keep pinch flatting the tube.
oh it hurts though, beacause she's so gorgeous, and i feel so good riding her,
but we are not meant to be.
these final days have been filled with more rage and frustration than pride and love.
she shall be posted to craigslist imminintly.
a wider tire'd hybrid looms on my horizon as soon as i can secure funding.

since it's been a while,
have you seen this??
a gorgeous rendition of lisztomania by a bunch of elementary school kids??
and their amazing, loving teacher?
i have a feeling i'm late to this, but
check it out!!

here in vancouver,
some friends of mine are putting on a film and art festival centered around bicycles.
the main boys responsible are the zenga's
and boy are they a crazy bunch.
check out this rad website for a trailer of their film
(which i've seen, and is utterly fantastic!)

ok i think i'll end here.
if you're around and don't have plans for breakfast this week, let me know!
also if you'd like to purchase my bike, let me know!
love julie
