Sunshine... because, you know, it's monday... so why be a gray snowy day. Nope... sunshine and nature waggling little come-hither fingers at me. sigh.
We watched the Survivor Finale last night... I'll write an "Update" later... but you know... it's totally bad that they delay the start of something like that because of a football game. I mean... what percentage of people that are watching... are taping???? and if you're taping... then ... well you're screwed with they start it early... 'cause your vcr or PVR ends at 10 and the show... keeps going till 10:20. Oh my god... imagine??? I mean, no problemo for me... I caught it before it was over and set my PVR to take non-stop... So it all worked out, but ... ug! Evil TV gods.

gonna talk about guns in a while... but not yet... I'll save that for later. :)
for now... let me just say that watching the political parties try and get the average Canadians attention with one big announcement after another is just hilarious. None of them can afford the crap they're talking about ... so it's all just so many empty promises... Tax cuts that they dress up like a Child Care policy, Gun Control that does nothing but feed the anti-control movement, and ... the way they all tea-bag president Bush - even when they're trying to look all strong and opinionated - is just pathetic. You know what I'd like to see? I'd like to see an elected Canadian political official... tell the US where to get off on their unfair trade practices and SHUT DOWN THE WATER SUPPLY that we so generously provide. SHUT IT DOWN... make 'em thirsty... make 'em play frigging nice for a change.

If you want to teach your kids a lesson about "clean"... it doesn't do any good to set them on the "weekly chore" schedule to clean whatever it is. No. The right way is to set them on it ... every single day - and it doesn't matter if it's dirty or not... but every single day for two weeks. For example; washing the counter in the kids bathroom... I'm talking clothes, spray cleaner, hot water... the whole nine-yards. Have you child wash it ever single night for two weeks before story time. Works - in my opinion - for any child from 5 years to 15... They wash it every night... and they start to draw the link between that sloppy toothpaste moment and the challenge of cleaning. The "every day" thing is central to getting them to see the relationship between their actions and the cleaning. If they have to (i.e.) clean the bathroom once a week, or something... that just removes guilt and doesn't address any new understanding of why the place gets dirty.

Saw Shakira on SNL this weekend. She's kinda funny looking... cute... great hips and she can do that latin dancing chick thing like sixty... but forget about all that... I just fricking love her voice. She can sing to me in spanish all day (she does, actually... I have two albums of spanish language songs on my play list). Ok... Yeah, know I was on about Fiona Apple last week... I'm still on Fiona. Fiona, Shirley, Shakira, Suzanne Vega, Crow, Kate Bush, Siberry, sigh... I'm such a sucker for a female lead... oh oh ... and do you grok Shakespear's Sister? They did that song Stay...

K... that's my schtick... :) have a great day. :D :D :D
