Busy, Work

Forgive me if I'm short on copy for the next couple of days or if my photos bear scant relation to my words. I'm busy busy busy sprucing up my presentation for this Thursday, April 1st, and setting a bad example for myself.

If I haven't already bugged--uh, mentioned it to you, I'm leading a salon at the Pasadena Women's City Club called "Blogging for Your Business: Ten Tips for Putting Your Best Cyberfoot Forward." I hope you'll be there.

If you plan to come, be sure and make a reservation so the Club knows which room to put us in and the kitchen knows to prepare enough appetizers. I want to be damn sure we have enough appetizers.

I think this truck bed makes for an interesting photo but I'm not sure a blog is what this guy needs.

Reservations: (626) 796-0560 or wccpas@sbcglobal.net.
The Women's City Club is at the edge of the Fuller Theological Seminary campus, 160 N. Oakland Avenue, Pasadena, CA 91101. There's free parking in the rear. Enter the second driveway south of Walnut on Madison on the west side of the street. Dress is business casual. Men are welcome. $6 charge includes those appetizers. Come as early as 6pm for cash bar and networking. Salon begins at 7pm.

PDP, what time do you start talking?
And, btw, those appetizers begin when??

I was under the impression this was happening around the lunch time. April Fools I suppose.

Dina said...

Cyberfoot, I like that. Good luck.

Ah, it's a truck! Now I see. Cool.

Shell Sherree said...

To be here at all is wonderful, Petrea! So, I'm missing appetisers as well as your talk? Double pooh...

Good Luck Petrea.
BTW, I put the Subscribe tool on the blog. It may be a way that you can have our blog on your google reader ;)

Looking forward to the bloginar.

Petrea said...

I start talking at 7pm, Cafe. Appetizers and cash bar begin at 6. It's an evening thang, honey.

Yes, Dina, but I'm not going to wear my cyberclothes, which are usually sweat pants and an old flannel shirt of J's. I'll wear real clothes.

Ha! No double pooh, Shell, the appetizers are usually pretty good at the WCC.

Thank you, Sweet Sarah! I found it!

Yay! I'll see you there, Roberta.

Cool shot! I love it. I watched you take it, but I was distracted by a Certain Person's simultaneous creative effort.

Beautiful image. It is a scene filled with a quiet and serene sort of beauty that needs no words.

Pasadena Adjacent said...

This image would have made a swell zen Monday

ben wideman said...

I really love this image. So well crafted! Hope your presentation goes well!

Break a leg. It seems like I should have a few suggestions but you're doing jsut fine without them I'm sure.

Bellis said...

It's going to be a great talk, you're putting so much work into it.I love the way that old pickup is slowly becoming at one with its environment. Archaeologists will be puzzling over it 2,000 years from now.

Rosie said...

Good luck - any chance this is being recorded so those of us who are geographically challenged could get the goods (sans appetizers)?

Ken Mac said...

this kind of light and foliage only exists on the left coast. Gorgeous

Virginia said...

I would give anything to be in your audience, my friend. Lovely light in this one.

Have I told you lately how much I"m looking forward to hugging your neck???

Ms M said...

Interesting photo; like way you framed it.
All the best to you on your talk. I'm sure you'll be fabulous!

Petrea said...

Thank you for your visits and lovely comments. I appreciate them all.

As for recording the presentation: Rosie, thank you for asking. Maybe when I've really got it down I'll put it on youtube or something. We shall see!

Bellis said...

My comment never appeared, but at least I can repeat it: I'm sure your presentation will be really good, and I'm hoping to be there. The photo's great - I love the way the truck is becoming part of the environment. Is that a huge rock in the back or a plastic bag?

Desiree said...

Yay! You'll be terrific--sorry I'll be missing it--

Amy said...

Blogs solve all problems. Okay, and maybe he could use a dumpster as well.

Good luck with your presentation!

Shell Sherree said...

"No double pooh..." Hahaha!!

Virginia said...

Waaa, I want to come! :(

Petrea said...

I'm pretty sure it's a plastic bag, Bellis.

Now that it's tomorrow night I'm starting to doubt everything I have to say. Does that always happen?

J+P said...

I have no doubt.

Diana said...

I'm so glad you mentioned this in time for me to make a reservation!

Petrea said...

Yay! Looking forward to seeing you, Diana.

Cafe Pasadena said...

PDP, I think you made a Typo in your directions to the Ladies Club:
From my angle, I think you meant parking is the 2nd driveway south of Walnut St. Not south of Union.

Petrea said...

WoopS! Thank you, you are correct, Cafe.

Dina said...

Oh no, even clothes can be cyberclothes?
So you really put on grown-up clothes for your talk? I almost don't have any anymore.

Petrea said...

Should have seen me searching the closet for something to wear, Dina. I almost don't have any grown-up clothes anymore, either.
