And now for something political

“George Bush goes to a primary school to talk to the kids to get a little PR. After his talk he offers question time. One little boy puts up his hand and George asks him his name.
“Stanley,” responds the little boy.
“And what is your question, Stanley?”
“I have 4 questions:
First, why did the USA invade Iraq without the support of the UN? Second, why are you President when Al Gore got more votes? Third, whatever happened to Osama Bin Laden?” Fourth, why are we so worried about gay-marriage when 1/2 of all Americans don’t have health insurance?”
Just then, the bell rings for recess. George Bush informs the kiddies that they will continue after recess.
When they resume George says, “OK, where were we? Oh, that’s right, question time. Who has a question?”
Another little boy puts up his hand. George points him out and asks him his name.
“Steve,” he responds.
“And what is your question, Steve?”
“Actually, I have 6 questions:
First, why did the USA invade Iraq without the support of the UN? Second, why are you President when Al Gore got more votes? Third, whatever happened to Osama Bin Laden?
Fourth, why are we so worried about gay marriage when 1/2 of all Americans don’t have health insurance? Fifth, why did the recess bell go off 20 minutes early? And sixth, what happened to Stanley?”

I stole this from MG’s blog.

On a personal note, I believe I am going to join Amnesty International and possibly volunteer. I need to start doing something.


Do the Shuffle

When I first got to Calgary I needed to switch to a new bank account, as my Credit Union account wouldn’t work anymore. Once I was a fat cat kid, but times change I guess.

I went to TD Canada Trust and I got a free Ipod Shuffle. Through one confusion or another, when I got the Ipod it didn’t work–I kept getting a firmware error and wasn’t able to restore it. :( But this was in the midst of about to get married and so I never got around to finding an answer.

Finally, back in town, I took it back to TD last week and a girl who figured she knew it all took my broken Ipod and said “I can fix it”. I’ll try anything once… well most things… except maybe squid. She called me back yesterday and said “I fixed it, come pick it up”. Now just let me say, I am no slouch when it comes to electronics and I was surprised, but happy.

I got home lastnight, put it in my computer and guess what… I got the same error!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had a slight moment of a freak out–plus I had been putting together Ikea products… but lets just forget about that, for now at least.

After I cooled down, I thought, maybe I should try this on Leah’s computer. I did. It worked. HURRAY. For some reason my computer sucks huge, but that’s okay because I am making a new one anyways. I am now listening to my Ipod Shuffle.

I am a pod-person now. Maybe, I hope, to begin to learn about and then create my own podcasts in the future. Until then, I am your rockstarpoet.

My Obsession

I love Scrubs. I do. I have watched all the episodes, at the very least, 4 times, but some up to 20, 30? I have no idea. Many times. To me Scrubs is the perfect combination of funny, serious and wackiness that I can’t get enough. It’s the place I want to be. It’s the world I wish I had.

UPDATE: There are new EXTREME Tickle-Me-Elmo dolls… SCARY!

The Brick Testament

I think I might post again today, but I just stumbled on this and if you weren’t in church yesterday this might be the next greatest… THE BRICK TESTAMENT.

It’s bible stories with Lego characters. And they are hilarious if not sacreligious and VERY WRONG!!! And it doesn’t just end with the stories but they are all rated for content. How funny is that?

I think my favourite is Cain and Abel.

Update: Brenda finally found what I put in the blog for her–Creighton’s weather is listed.

Update 2: Just in. Someone fed the Tracy and I guess she’s turned into some sort of Gremlin-like creature. Last sighting: The Zellers on North Albert St, Regina. Comestics Section.
