Where’s everybody watching the election results tomorrow night? I’ll be working at the polling station all day, and then I think I’ll dash over to GC’s place to watch the results, since he has a TV and everything.
Remember the Ontario provincial election about 20 years ago, when CBC (I think) announced that the Liberals had won, but then they had to reverse it because the NDP came out of nowhere and surprised everybody and actually won? I watched that election in bed with my son, who was eight at the time. When they announced that the NDP had won, we were so excited we jumped up and down on the bed about a thousand times.
I’m really curious to see what happens tomorrow. I’m trying not to get my hopes up too high. As long as Harper doesn’t get his majority, I’ll consider it a victory. (Still, I’d love to see the kind of results that would have me jumping up and down on the bed again.)
The snow pile featured in our contest still hasn’t completely melted. It’s getting there, though.
Here it is as of 1:00ish on Sunday May 1st.
It has shrunk away from the building, so it looks even smaller when viewed from the side.
This is what it looked like on April 11th. It’s made a lot of progress in just three short weeks.
The following contestants have already been eliminated from the contest:
Kathleen (April 17)
Pamela (April 18)
Jen (April 23)
Finola (April 25)
Grace (April 27)
Connie (April 29)
Reb (April 29)
These eight contestants are still in the running:
Nancy (May 1)
Valerie (May 2)
Mudmama (May 3)
Deb (May 5)
Gramps (May 6)
Natasha (May 8)
Kathy (June 1)
Auntie Michal (June 3)
Florence (June 24)
But I think it’s fairly safe to say that anybody who chose a June date stands about a snowball’s chance in hell of winning this contest.
