No really... what a fantastic performance. :D

The kids had sooo many lines to remember.
I'm talking grades 5 & 6 with a few 4s tossed in... doing all of Grease.
Geo was "Scorpian #5" ... :D
And a member of the choir.
There'll be video some day... :D

Friday, May 13.



headache... woke up with a bit of a boomer... and woke up a bit late. Had to really fly through the "ok kids... up and at-em" zone.
At the last second... Edward announced he has a sore throat and can't go to school... Suz bought it so he's home. I will be wrong... but my first reaction was totally... HA!!! Get on the buss slacker. :D hahaha... Grade one. sigh. Yes, I'll feel terrible when he turns out to be really sick... but that is a story as yet untold.

It's cold again... but not too cold... and absolutely beautiful outside. :)

The kids were so amazing in their play (musical) last night. The little girl that played Cha Cha... hahahahaha... way too happy. I thought she was going to explode on stage. :D

// I'm really bummed about the way things are going with the government. I can see how this is going to work out... with the liberals getting another minority... or the conservatives... and then a repeat of all this in under a year. It's so wasteful... I've said it before and it needs saying again. Canadians wanted a government that would be forced to form consensus on the issues... that would stop swinging wilding to the left or the right and pay attention to interest groups. Instead... we've got a government that is practically non functional. The Gomery Commission of Inquiry is not over and it's mandate is not simply to determine if public funds were misused. Theres more to it's investigation than that. However... the most difficult aspect of all this is that we're being asked to believe slime ball punk rat bastard business men that prol'y live in strip clubs as they slag out on every layer of politician they can think of to get the focus off themselves. I'm not saying the politicians are good... but dude... they're not scum bags... and half of these guys talking at the Montreal version of Gomery are. There was a time in the past when the government was ripe for abuse by the business community as everyone went wild over the Canadian Unity problem. A lot of french business men in quebec took advantage of this. Some of the people in charge of the liberal party - at that time - were played like well violins and others abused their power. But the biggest crooks were the business men that made millions and millions off this scandel. Now... years and years later... we will shut down government because of those crooks. It's just stupid...

// Four Hundred people have been blown up in Iraq by mad bombers in the last two weeks. Did you know that? How the hell can any society exist like that? Or is that what democracy looks like when you shove it down the throats of a country on the other side of the planet? Or does it have something to do with shoving democracy down their throats with your right hand while you pull all their resources and cash out of their asses with the left??

// We jail a woman for writing too many bad cheques... we jail a kid for shoplifting... but we give suspended sentences to murders and totally exonerate husband killers because they had a good reason... um... just say'en... things get to looking a bit fucked up if you look too close.

// Wolds oldest shoe uncovered in a dig that proves the show was lost down a well. It's all one big Douglas Adams thing to me... (excavating shoes) ...

Gotta go. :D See ya.

a Garbage moment.

Just saying... I f'g love this song...
The lyrics ... all three stanzas... put me in high school in the blink of an eye...
I learned about love in high school.
I learned about pain... both kinds.
And I found out who I really was or at least... who I was going to be.
This song... simple and short... reminds me of those discoveries.
Goose bumps...

"Thirteen"
Won't you let me walk you home from school
Won't you let me meet you at the pool
Maybe Friday I can
Get tickets for the dance
And I'll take you

Won't you tell your dad, "Get off my back"
Tell him what we said about "Paint It, Black"
Rock 'n Roll is here to stay
Come inside where it's okay
And I'll shake you.

Won't you tell me what you're thinking of.
Would you be an outlaw for my love
If it's so, well, let me know
If it's "no," well, I can go.
I won't make you.

Last pic of me at this office for... ages!

Monday is the start of a whole new deal.

For now... I give you two things...

One? A big honking laugh... Check this out... (oh my god it's funny)

Two? A really good reason to be charitable.

A veritable tupperware tub jungle of kinex, lego, mechano, and all manner of put together toys...
Yet their attention is held without end by marshmallows and toothpicks.



When the marshmallows dry out... they hold the toothpicks like cement.



and clean up is a breeze...
Just chuck it all out!
