I’m really glad that so many of you are joining me this Saturday in turning off your lights, but I have more news. Today’s edition of the xToronto Starx had an entire section on this Saturday’s upcoming global event, Earth Hour, and the section highlighted several (mostly free) events & activities taking place during this remarkable hour. One of them, is a free, acoustic concert by Nelly Furtado (Singer of I’m like a bird, Promiscuous ft. Timbaland, and Turn off the Light). Now, I’m not a huge fan of hers, but The Philosopher Kings (who you may or may not have heard of) are also going to be there. And them, I love!
The concert is being held at Nathan Philipps Square and while it isn’t going completely unplugged for the concert, power will be supplied by Bullfrog Power (uses emission-free sources like wind and water). They’re encouraging people to take transit too. And to bring mugs since they’re providing plenty of hot chocolate!
It will be a challenge for me to go via transit because I don’t live close to a line, but I’m going to try my best. Also, I have to work at 5:30 that morning, and I’m going to be very tired which makes me colder than normal. It’s not that I’m not willing… it’s that I’ll be alone as well so it won’t be that easy to go via transit, by myself, in the cold. So if it turns out to be really cold that day I’m going to end up taking my car. My guilt-easing spiel is that I drive a Toyota Yaris, and it was listed in another section of today’s Toronto Star as being efficient (is that the right word?) on fuel consumption. Also, if anyone lives in the Scarborough area (this only applies to people on facebook that are reading this, because I’m afraid I’m just not trusting enough) and would like to carpool to this free concert, I would be more than happy to take you along! Just message me and we can work out the details.
Have you signed up yet? Hurry up! It’s tomorrow night! What are you waiting for?
