on with it

courtneyCanada, people, politics

Do you know how many people in my family are born in April? Lots. And then we did the whole Easter thing. And that is why I am 1,000 words short of my goal of 30k, which I meant to meet Sunday. Oh well! When I am a paid writer working with important deadlines, I won’t let things like birthdays or Easter or autoharps or blog entries or really good television shows get in the way of my career!

Ha ha ha!

Belinda Stronach is leaving politics. I’m pretty bummed out about this because I really enjoyed telling people she was Stronach enough to be my Prime Minister and now she is denying herself the chance to run the country and, more importantly, me the chance to make a small fortune off that slogan. Even though I’m pretty sure I picked it up from someone cleverer than me. But that doesn’t matter. What matters is who makes and profits off the t-shirts first.

Anyway, thanks a lot, Belinda.

In all seriousness, I don’t blame her for stepping down. She had to suffer through Peter MacKay’s moping after their break-up because oh my God, she had policital convictions–ps: tackiest photo-op EVER, Peter–never mind the truly heinous name calling she endured later on. Not cool, Tories. Not cool at all. See, this is why I never vote for you.

Well, that and your con$ervative value$.
