Great sleep... although Ed was up at 4:00 to talk... ??? Have some milk... go the bathroom... ??? I mean... he was wide awake. it was odd. Of course, waking him up at 7:00 is almost impossible.
I kinda overslept... so I wasn't up at 6:30 today... but that's ok, Z was up and doing her thing with the boys. I made their lunches at night (as I always do) and remembered to set the coffee maker so it was all good. :)
I was playing with Edward last night... leaning over him and threatening to lick his whole face.... This is a standard threat... (just say'en...) any ways, he was on the ground, on his back, sliding away from me... and he pushed himself right into the corner of the trim near the fireplace. WHACK!!!!! Gah!!! I'm sure the horrified expression on my face didn't help ... he was a mass of tears and a nasty cut (not serious) on his little head. I have to try harder to keep the relaxed face, even in the face of calamity ( I do, often, remember to keep a straight face) because if you're scared or worried... well, the kids are too... of course.
Poor little guy. :(
He seemed no worse for wear today... :D

Canada is en route to an election.
The opposition parties (Block = anti canada fuck nuts, PC = the "conservatives", NDP = Labour Party) got together and, based on a "common sense" appeal by the NDP decided to call on the Gov to drop the writ for an election in January so that we all vote in Feb. If the gov doesn't, they are threatening to "force" the issue with a "non confidence" vote ending with an election in early January.. hence, campaigning through christmas.
Let me just say... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!
The government will not do this. They will a) not let themselves be dictated to by the opposition parties... and lo, they shouldn't and none of the opposition parties - where they in power - would do it either. and b) So..... if the government in power doesn't do your bidding, you'll force an election over christmas? hahaha... yeah, right. Well if you do, you are collectively much more foollish than even I think. Who is inconvenienced by that? The political parties... that's who. First, you'll have to actually campaign over christmas and then you'll have to deal with pissing people off by campaigning over christmas and in the end... you'll get uninformed voters who refused to pay attention over christmas and fewer voters overall because... you held the election over the holiday season. Dumb dumb and dumber.
Good luck with that plan boys... Geez.
A friend emailed me a message that must be cruising the wires.
It's a story about kids drugg'en on something called "dusting off".
It has to do with using aerosol "air propellant" dust blower things to catch a fast buzz.
The heart of the story is that for some kids (and there is no way to know ahead of time) ... you die when you try it. die dead. over. in seconds. dead.
So my question: is this real or a net-thing?
I consider it close to sniffing glue or the PAM thing... Remember the PAM cooking spray thing? Kids would ball up kleenex and put that in a tp tube and then spray PAM in one end and breath in the other. Never tried it... but it started when I was in HS and I knew knobs that would do this. Personally... they were the sort that started out exceptionally stupid ... but you gotta know it just made things worse. PAM = Sentenced to perpetually stupid.
Is this "Dusting Off" a real deal, and if it is... who else has heard of the Dead Zone that comes with it?
It sounds absolutely horrible. And the story of the child that died... is a heart breaker!!!
When I look at your face, I see dirt.
all the sunshine you blow up my ass starts to hurt...
~ poor wheatus... great lyrics, great sound and great voice.
And then they vanished.
