Wow. totally dark this morning... and by the time I had the boys awake... the rain was coming down.
I managed to stay awake after the alarm went off... which really is an essential part of being on time for anything. :)
It's friday... and despite the rain... I'm absolutely thrilled. :) I want me some weekend!! :D
... er... I also want a song:
(thanks man... :D)

Please join with me in hoping that the first available sixteen ton anvil will be dropped on State Sen. Patricia Miller, R-Indianapolis... because crazy fucking lunatics shouldn't be in charge of shit... !!!!! (she's the one that thought the government should supervise the process of procreation...)
Teachers Union: British Columbia, Canada "Some laws are just too limiting... to invasive... and have to be broken."
Ok... that was sound bite lady on the radio over the issue that the BC government has just told the Teachers Union that it would be illegal for the teachers to strike.
Can I just say... she is exactly what I despise about Labour Unions.
Of course you shouldn't break a law just because you don't like it... at least not as an organization. I can grok individuals sticking their finger in the air and busting a law... but to come out and say "Nope... I want to pick what laws I like and I'll be getting the thousands of people paying dues to be part of my club to do that too!" is to - IMHO - ask a for a jail sentence.
If you don't like a law... work towards changing it... use your vote effectively... participate in the process. But don't show up after the fact, say you don't agree and then promote lawlessness publicly. Bitch.
It remains my opinion that teachers... especially public and high school teachers... should be - across the board - paid double what they're making now and the school systems should have their budgets doubled... just as soon as they do away with the multiple school boards in every region. The job - teaching - is the most important job in the universe... but the people that run the boards of Education are idiots and self serving. We have a french, english, french catholic, english catholic school boards... and THEY ALL DO THE SAME THING. But we have to have four physical structures... four sets of support staff... four infrastructures... and four bargaining units... meanwhile... a brand new public school... opened last year... is already at 250% capacity with a dozen portables out back.
Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia... it doesn't matter... We need fewer school boards.
Tom Cruise... that icon of clear thinking and reasonable opinions... has said that he will never go on her show again! when asked about Oprah. And then he called her disloyal for having Brook on so she could attack him. My thinking is... Tom doesn't watch Television. I saw the Brook show and she didn't trash Tom... she was actually very careful what she said. He, on the other hand, jumped around, yelled and screamed and absolutely dragged Brook through the mud, trashing the shit out of her. I though he deserved to be whipped for his comments...
... but we all know the real whipping will come when Katie (the little girl that towers over him) falls into a wild post-partum depression after having her
and to end on a nice vibe...
I really love Rush!!
One likes to believe in the freedom of music
But glittering prizes and endless compromises
Shatter the illusion of integrity
Have a stellar Friday!! :D
