It’s crazy, but it’s true. My Mom applied to carry the Olympic torch in 2010 – she entered contests, she wrote essays, and finally her hard has work paid off. She got an e-mail confirming that she would indeed be carrying the Olympic torch next year on February 4, 2010 for 400 metres through our hometown of Powell River where she lives, in honour of … Continue reading Mom to carry the Olympic Torch in 2010!
May long weekend, I went on what was by far, the best bachelorette party ever. It will not be topped in this lifetime, I guarantee it. My good friend Liz is getting married on July 11, 2009, in our hometown of Powell River, BC. Her sister Deanna, and her mother Nancy (whom I’ve known forever), had been planning her bachelorette weekend for months, and I … Continue reading The Kidnapped Bachelorette
I took on a little personal project awhile ago, and I am glad to say I have finally finished it! I started out thinking I was going to make just one video, but it turned into two. The first one is an interview with myself on “Who is Janis Behan?” The second one is a selection of testimonials from some of my best friends with … Continue reading Who is Janis Behan? A series
My friend Cheech is a personal trainer, and he wants to start putting together a portfolio, and he asked me to take a few pictures of him to get started. I was very happy to do it for him, because I am really starting to love my camera and I feel like I am learning something new every time I use it. So we spent … Continue reading Photoshoot with Cheech
If you’ve been reading, you probably know that my family – my mother, my two brothers, Jordan and Wesley, and I all ran the Vancouver Sun Run on April 19, 2009. We challenged each other to the race, but also to raise the most money for charity. After completing the run, SatoCanada awarded Wes with a trophy for raising the most for his charity. Also, … Continue reading Our Sun Run Interview with Erin Cebula from Global
So, I recently realized that I have a timelapse function on my little Canon Powershot (okay, so Emily figured it out) and we’ve been messing around with it a lot lately. We took a trip to Whistler and filmed a bunch of video with it – you know, just for fun – so I chopped them up and threw them all together into a wee … Continue reading Janis & Emily’s Epic Weekend
Well, it’s finally all over and done with. At the time of the start of the race, Wes was our leader in pledges at $770 for the Children’s Miracle Network, and still waiting for one more cheque. Jordan had about $600 for BC Cancer, and I had raised $680 for Wheels in Motion. By the end of day Sunday, though, Jordan had $885 worth of … Continue reading The Behan Family Sun Run Results
This is it. Sunday, April 19, 2009 is the 25th Annual Vancouver Sun Run. I am running, along with my mother, my brothers Wesley and Jordan, and I think my friend Emily might even come out for it. I’m also hoping my sister-in-law Alex will come out to cheer us on, and maybe snap a photo or two??? If you’ve been keeping up with my … Continue reading Are we ready for the Sun Run?
Last night I was one of the lucky folks who got an invite to the grand opening party for V, which is the new vodka lounge located upstairs at Earls Yaletown. My friend Amanda is the Marketing Manager there, and she was kind enough to extend the invitation to some of her family and friends. So first of all, from the moment I got there, … Continue reading V @ Earls Yaletown – Grand Opening Party
I had no intentions of catching any shows during Juno Fest, but Emily and I happened to be out Saturday night cruising down Granville Street, and casually walked into a tent where a band was doing a sound check and getting ready to play, so we stuck around to watch. They were a country/folk band called Run GMC. Yes, I know what you’re thinking – … Continue reading A small taste of Juno Fest
