Pecha Kucha, Bicycles, the L word & Sanka

Lots of random tidbits today, kids.

Pecha Kucha's back. Tickets are on sale (a mere $5) and you'd better get them now because I hear talk that they are already going fast. It's another super cool line up of Charleston creatives who get to share their tiny tidbits of goodness and light in the space of 6 minutes and 40 seconds. (I'm especially excited about seeing Sharon Graci, Mary Norton and our pal Gil Shuler.)

If you're in need of a bicycle and in this economy, I hope you have one, check out C of C's bike auction on Thursday outside the Physician's Auditorium from 11 am until 2 pm.

Had a really thought-provoking conversation with one of our favorite planners a few weeks ago. During the course of conversation, she used the word "luxury," which to some, is a bad word right about now. But, I was so happy she did. Why? Because we both believe this: true luxury is really about taking excellent care of someone. Actually, honestly caring about their well-being. And to us, it doesn't need to have a price tag or a logo attached to it. It only needs to be earnest and honest. Kind of a nice moment in the midst of this economic brouhaha, huh?

In wacky news, Starbucks is now producing instant coffee. I am not making this up. The award-winning line to go with? "This is not instant coffee. This is rich, flavorful Starbucks® coffee in an instant." Soooooo...where's my Sanka?
