Friday, January 21



Yeah, so all the 'merican versus canad'yan meetricks temperature stuff... all falls to shit when it hits minus 40.
After that... it's all the same man. And the technical definition ... of conditions when the temperature gets that low is...
STUPID COLD.
When I left the house this morning it was minus 42 outside.
There's no snow... just piles of white ROCK everywhere... oh, and it squeaks when you step on it.
Let's put "minus 42" into perspective... When was the last time you squirted a water pistol?
Imagine shooting short stream of water from little crappy water pistol into the air... and it falling to the ground as ICE.
Yeah... no really.

And, searching for silver... The sun is out in all her glory, so everybody you meet on the street looks either like a stupid kid that doesn't know enough to dress for the weather or a giant colourful marshmallow with sunglasses. :)

ps. It's "national hug day" today... which is all well and good... but next Friday is "national grab that ass day" ... so I'm holding myself back till then.

wearing
~ black stripee ftls
~ new blue jeans... [ :: and man, I wish I could wear 'em every day!! :: ]
~ a nice white shirt... that's hiding under a big blue turtleneck.
planning
~ start the day with my nose to buried in the laptop working on the next survey for this client...
~ try desperately to remember that it's a Friday...
~ clear out data from my "desktop computer" at work and migrate it to the laptop... (sigh)
~ tonight? yeah... no plans. (besides staying warm...)
wishing
~ that today goes swimmingly for danicia
~ and that I was able to actually look at my friends page... fucking fridays... how come they're always so freakishly busy???? gah!!!


Of the 25,000 Iraqi's that live in Canada... that are eligible to vote in the upcoming sham... er... election in Iraq... only 2,500 have registered. This, apparently is typical of expat Iraqi's around the world. The "election team" is saying that they expect a "late rush" of registrations. I'm expecting ... nothing even close.
Dudes... take a frick'en clue. They are in Canada, or where ever because they abandoned a punk ass country made of deserts and crazy people ... exactly how big a shit do you think they are going to give about some puppet election the occupying army is holding????

:::::::::::::::::[ end of day me... with a tooque ]::::::::::::::::

Ok... today is all done.

Now... I have a sneaking suspicion that Battlestar Galactica is on tonight... or is it tomorrow?
Must check check the guides...

I have to boogy to my folks house and get the boys... as suz is out with her work friends for the early part of the evening.

Oh and that "migrate from the desktop to the laptop" thing never even got started... ug.
I have to get that done next week.

See ya soon... :)

grrrrr!

Dear Mr. Harper:

As the head of the Canadian federal conservative
party, are you finding it difficult to read the body
language of your political foes with you head
shoved that far up your own ass?

No really... I'd like to know.

"Stephen Harper who said the Liberal government's
move to extend marriage to include gay and lesbian
couples could, one day, evolve into support for
polygamy"


Lord love a fucking duck... what a comprehensive sojourn into the realm of absolute stupitude!

:::::::::::::::::

Of course this kind of thing just hauls all the freak'en zealots out from under their rocks to pump up the air waves with sound bites that do pretty well nothing but stir anger and frustration.

The one that leaves me with the most steam shooting out of my ears is the one that goes something like; "By tampering with the traditional values of marriage we threaten the very fabric of our country, for they cannot contribute in the most essential and basic way to our country's future."

How totally fucked is that? Of course it's a reference to make'en babies.

Because... you know... those regular couples that have remained childless by no choice of their own or, more to the point... those that simply do not choose to have children, are just destroying our country... I mean there should be a fine or something...

I'm sorry but this issue completely burns my ass. Every way of slicing the issue into a torrent of social terror, hate, distrust, revulsion, and disrespect is brought to the fore in the ridiculous hope of moving away from the actual issue at hand. The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is not a book of suggestions for the self righteous to edit when they see fit.

Love is not your province to tax, control, define and award.
and you actually think Spongebob and Patric are a bad influence on our kids because they hold hands... I beg you to kill yourself before you do any more damage to my planet.

Eat me you big big freaks... eat me.

And hurry up and get fucking old and die already so we can, as a civilization, finally be rid of your pathetic stains on our collective intelligence.

gah!
