NxNE, Social Scratch, Party Party Party and my new fox tail…
You know what feels worse than having your iPhone die at 6:48 p.m. when you’ve got a full night of party hopping ahead? Being stuck in downtown Teeyoh traffic, knowing that your dinner date is furiously texting a dead iPhone to find out where the heck your road-raging ass be at. And also being attacked by locusts, I presume.
Today was a doozy, but a great one indeed.
First off, I went to work and found out that Antoine Dodson got a new weave. Woah.
Then I actually worked for a little bit before high-tailing it to the NxNe Interactive conference for some panelization. The hashtag for “The Black Hole of Facebook” was “#Facehole“, which started trending shortly after the session started.
This made me happy, but not nearly as happy as the word “Facehole” does in general. Big ups to Lee for that gem.
(Thanks for taking that photo, Rannie!)
The house, as they say, was full.
It flew by faster than you can say “engage authentically” 10 times fast (I think I might have actually done that) but it was super fun and I felt incredibly honoured to be up on that stage next to Lee, Aikta and Sean. Big-time talent. Thanks for having me!
So stoked on post-panel accolades was I, (ego is one hell of a drug) that on the way back to the office a little celebratory gift was purchased. If it had been a bad day, I would have deemed this a “pick-me-up” present. Anything to avoid acknowledging my impulsive buys as what they really are. What a tangled web of emotions and spending I weave…
DO YOU LOVE IT? I do = so much that I bought two! I saw these fox tails in the window of a local furrier and I just couldn’t resist. Now my purse has a tail, and the PETArds who hover around Heritage Court during fashion week can guilt trip me even harder.
Whatever. At least I don’t EAT the dang things.
After work, I went to The Verge (XM)’s Rooftop Party across from Sugar Beach. Babillions of hot boys (you know, that indie rock type) and great bands were there – Zeus was there and Leake was there and HOLLERADO was there too!
I love this band more and more all the time. They always roll with confetti and rule at music.
My phone died mid text (sorry Nate!) and then I went to The Toshiba Primer Party for a bit. It was aight.
The YYZ Living Summer Issue Launch Party after that was swank as hello operator, please give me number nine. I loved it.
My camera battery was ALSO dead by that point so I nabbed narry a photo, but plenty of people were around snapping the YYZ party. It was the best party of the night for sure. I’ll post photos later if they come my way.
Annnnd last but not least, you might see me in a wee video around NXNE this week if you’re hitting up the Interactive conference or film festival at all. I’ve been getting mad Tweets about it already! So fun!
The spot is about digital influence and it’s produced by Social Scratch. I don’t know why I look so angry… I wasn’t angry. Just pensive. Regardez:
That’s it that’s all! It’s way late for a girl who needs to be up to get ready for work in a few hours. That’s what I miss more than anything about university… the lack of Friday morning classes. Sigh. I guess that’s growing up…
At least I’m not being swarmed by locusts?
