Thanks for all the word donations. There were some truly inspired and fabulous words in there, including two bananas. If you haven’t given me one yet, please do. I’ll be sure to blog about the project once it gets underway, so you’ll know your words went to a good cause. At this point, all I can say is that this is an art project.
Thanks also for your feedback on the new theme. I’m going to mull it all over and I’m pretty sure changes will result. (I’m curious to see what they’ll be…)
I’m looking forward to Daylight Savings Time next weekend, aren’t you? Although it seems ridiculously early compared to past years, it also seems like it’s not a minute too soon.
I think Spring’s coming early this year. Sure, winter’s got a few more cryogenic blasts left in her, but February feels unusually loose and hopeful. It’s still February, of course, you can’t get around that: it sucks like only February can suck. But time hasn’t frozen solid the way it usually does in February in Ottawa. Considering we’ve endured a bus strike and everything, winter’s been tolerable.
Speaking of the bus strike, there were some interesting headlines about the mayor in the local newspapers this morning. Minister of Transport John Baird has been subpoenaed as a witness in Mayor Larry’s bribery trial, which starts April 27th. Hallelujah. And Council thinks they might actually get some work done with Larry out of the picture. That would be nice, but I’ll believe it when I see it. Larry’s not the only dysfunctional family member at the Council table.
Speaking of dysfunctional, don’t you just love a news story that makes all your flaws and misdeeds pale in comparison? A woman sold a four-year-old and a five-year-old for a cockatoo and $175. Oh sure, we’ve all thought about it, but it takes a special kind of dysfunctional to actually go through with it.
In other news, GC and I are going to see the movie One Week tonight. It’s an advance showing before the film officially opens on March 6th. Mongrel Media has been busy distributing free advance passes to bloggers across Canada, presumably to generate some buzz.
I’ve got a bunch of double passes to see this movie on Thursday March 5th at 7:00 pm at the Coliseum on Carling Avenue. I’m giving them away to the first 10 people to leave a comment with a link to their favourite post on their own blog. (Or, if you don’t have a blog of your own, feel free to leave a comment with a link to your favourite post on my blog.) Just leave your comment and then
send me an email me with your snail mail address.
