Man, oh man, did we have an exciting week! It must have been the best 1st wedding anniversary ever! Let's see if we can't catch you up to speed...

Monday night's book-signing event was off the hook! We couldn't believe how many people showed up, and neither could Russell Howze, the book's author, and curator of There were so many stencil enthusiasts in attendance, in fact, that the good people at Powell's City of Books had to bring out a whole rack of more chairs to accommodate the crowd. Still, there were people left contentedly standing on the sidelines when the chairs ran out. The presentation Russell gave was great, and the "wooooot's" heard when Tiago's name was called out were especially heart warming because most were from people we don't even know!
The subsequent Stencil Ride that Tiago led, (as part of Pedalpalooza), was a real hit, as well. Many left the event saying that it was their favorite Pedalpalooza event to date. We were out fraternizing about the city well into the night, and returned home very flattered and satisfied.

The next day marked the public portion of the Towards Carfree Cities Conference, and Tiago's first official public art performance with spray paint! Thanks to Meghan Sinnot, one of the organizers of the conference, for arming Tiago with the spray chalk and, more importantly, the official permit that allowed him to paint burning upside-down SUV's on the grounds of City Hall! Conference attendees from all over the world stopped to watch, applaud, and congratulate Tiago for his artistic accomplishments and messages!

The rest of the week was filled with wonderfully ridiculous and inspiring Pedalpalooza events, including the Solstice Ride, which we co-lead! We rode all night for the shortest night of the year, and were re-married in front of a crowd of about 100 bikey friends by bike light at the top of Mt. Tabor. Thanks to Rev. Phil and Leigh from Vancouver for the wonderful words and thoughts they shared, and to everyone who participated, observed, and heckled! We love you all!

Yes, it has been a magical week, and the perfect prelude to a magical summer for the year of two-thousand-great! Before I go, I just want to remind all of you that you only have a few more days to catch the rest of Cycleseen, the all-around-P-Town exhibit of bicycle related art, in which our own Mr. DeJerk is featured in not one, but TWO different shows! The art comes down this week, though, so get out there and Cycle-see it while you can!

Love, and be super duper ridiculous,

Mrs. DeJerk
