Events for Non Vancouverites

Three weeks to the games now, and we are waiting for snow.  At least the rain has abated.  It's a nice Spring day here really.   The torch is in BC and events are heating up.  The Cultural Olympiad starts today.  There is a new ballet based on Joni Mitchell songs opening up today, we will see a play Beyond Eden next week starring John Mann (vocalist for Spirit of the West) and well known actor Tom Jackson.  It revolves around removal of Haida totem poles from their natural spiritual surroundings and being brought to museums by white men.    Not to get too serious, we are also seeing a comedy show featuring Shaun Majumder and Sean Cullen.  Huh.  Never noticed until this moment that these two funny but completely different guys have the same first name.  Spelled differently of course.   Brown and Silly, and White and Droll.  Should be a good laugh.  

I was talking to JD about how they might be watching the Olympics in Toronto and how they might get involved. You might be interested in these items: 

There is a 2010 Olympic celebration at Nathan Philips square on February 20th.  I hope you all go together!  (Don't ask me why there is no celebration in Ottawa for this, ... anyone in Ottawa care to comment?  Is there anything going on in your town around this??)

Also, you can watch events, I think including opening ceremonies on the BIG screen at Cinpelex theaters (even in Ottawa) .... Check it out

Happy Friday!
