The Jolie has been visiting Suzanne and Ian in Canada. Between them, these bloggers run three sites – that is an average of 1.5 blogs each (and they say I’m math averse). They have recently moved to Iqaluit, Nunavut and are writing about this big change in their lives at I’ll Have Nunavut. Some of you don’t know where Iqaluit is. It is waaay up there. If Canada is The Great White North, Iqaluit looks very North and very white.
The Jolie took on a little bow hunting in a lodge, with a polar bear that was already sort of…dead.
2010 was the first year of the Jolie Pez Project. I want to start out by saying that the project has already gone far beyond what I thought it could. My thanks go out to each of you who, at great risk to your safety and reputations, have allowed The Jolie into your lives.
I also would like to thank all the friends of The Jolie who read her adventures. Many of you are still awaiting a visit from our favorite action figure. I am happy to report that The Jolie will be traveling for quite some time. She has committed to visit all who invite her, anywhere in the world.
The Jolie is covering a lot of territory in her travels. This post shows her visit to San Jose and San Francisco, CA as a guest of my friend, Margie. Margie is unique among those who have hosted The Jolie (so far) in that I have actually met her. She was a great friend through Jr. High and High School. We’ve managed to cross paths a few times since and I’ve been happy to see her each time.
The Jolie’s San Jose visit was lost in the depths of my email box for a few weeks until Margie told me where I could find it. She was kind enough not to tell me where I could put it. Behold, the lost episode -
The Jolie went hiking outside San Jose. There was a little climbing involved, but the Jolie was dressed for the occasion and up to the task.
From Stratford Ct, The Jolie moved on to Briarwood, NY where a blog called Least Likely To Blog is written by the artist known as Queensgirl. The name of the blog is fitting because Q is significantly less likely to blog on any given day than say, me. Where I will write down whatever leaks out of my head, Q writes when she actually has something to say. I should learn something from that. Read the rest of this entry »
