It's Called Work, Roz...

Geez. I just got off the phone with Roz, she of the divine sister comment on the blog down there (put little down arrow here) about the bull. 'Aren't you ever gonna blog again?' she asks. Nothing like a little pressure from the family.

Yeah, the election pissed me off. No surprise there. Well, actually, I'm still surprised that any women could vote for this bunch of Reform party knuckledraggers. Seriously. I look around at women of all ages, and I'm aghast. And that's without getting into the whole law-breakin' stuff. Oh, and can I just say this once? BEV ODA??? SERIOUSLY??? I'll meet you all back in here in 4 years. The one thing I did like was people seemed more engaged. If nothing else, I'll take that.

Had an awesome interview this morning with a young lad who is a mechanic. He's blind. What a kid. Story will run in the near future. Just like that, my faith is restored.

If you wear contacts, check out on line prices. I just saved a hundred bucks.

Been busy with workish things lately, but not too busy to grab the latest Vanity Fair. The one with Rob Lowe on the cover. Shirtless. Boy has aged well. Very, very well. Sorry. Where were we?

Finally got hold of Deadwood. This is making me very, very happy. I'm meting out the episodes like a little kid hording Halloween candy. When it's gone it's gone, though something tells me I'll be watching this over and over.

It's a gorgeous day, and I'm finally home. Gonna go dig dandelions. That was always my job with Dad, so it seems about right. I was moving big rocks around a few days before the election - my hand is sort of fixed; I quit when it started bleeding again - and had a good conversation with him. Considering he's been gone 15 years, you can imagine the catching up we do when the dirt thaws each year. Now I have to go out and tell him what happened. I think he'll be as peeved as I am that this crew in Ottawa is masquerading as his beloved Progressive Conservative party.

Even a dead man knows that's just not right.

I was in Geneva during the election (voted the Monday before... couldn't let Harper garner any freebies) and heard the screams all the way over there.

It was horrible. HORRIBLE, I tell you.

Glad yer hand's sort of better. And nice to hear you're chatting with your dad. Mine's been gone exactly the same length of time and I keep finding dimes in the dining room. I know it's him letting me know he's still around.

Election night sucked, as usual. Now that Harper is unfettered just watch the pillaging commence...on healthcare, social services and anything center and leftish. Hope you like guns because now you can buy all the shotguns you need once you pass a police check. since your goose is cooked may as well shoot and stuff it yourself.

Are you referring to daysoft.com for contacts. My eyes don't tolerate them everyday but the price is unbeatable.
