mompoet at the montemartre

I'll be the feature performer at the wonderful Thundering Word open mic night at Cafe Montemartre in Vancouver on Sunday February 15. Hosts Wanda Nowicki and Bill McNamara and Bill's lovely wife Diana have invited me to do a 30 minute poem and story set at the show.

I'm super excited, especially after I saw the show last night. The night's feature, sketch duo The Dead Understudies, was hilarious. The open mic was fabulous too. I saw some great musicians and singers and a stand-up comedian before I had to sneak out the door. I wish I could have stayed to the end.

The cafe is an awesome spot too, flavoured like turn-of-the century Paris - very bohemian. I enjoyed a delish chocolate and orange crepe before the show began.

Anyway, here's the promo poster. I'm still giggling about being dubbed a "luscious suburban mom."

question: do you thunder?

mompoet - I hope you'll come to the show

I think this is incredibly awesome, Mrs. Luscious! Have a great time and cannot wait to hear all about it!

You're like on the cover of a magazine. Awesome honour. Good for you.

The only thunder here is when it is going to rain... from the past month, there has not been much and wildfires ignited here and there.

Really want to hear thunder nowadays to drench the drying trees and grasses here.

Can't fly to Canada, but am sure you'll be great there.

Have a great time too!

I will always remember how you used to tell you stories to the children at school.
You will be wonderful! Congratulations!!! (Susy Luscious)

Wish I could be there!

I've never been described as luscious...(makes sad face).

Can't wait to hear the juicy (luscious?) details.
