What's in my head

This is the home of your average girl in her early 30s making her way in the big city...Not really. I have thoughts. Now I have somewhere to put them.

This is just weird

K, I understand there are people out there who like Stephen Harper (although even the Conservatives I know don't think he's, you know, like the best leader ever or anything), but this site is just weird and stalkerish...(I checked there is no www.ihateharper.ca site)

(Credit for finding this goes to her - well, I don't know if she found it, but I found in on her site so...)

Happy New Year!

Kung hei fat choi!

I'm a sheep (or goat or ram...depending on the horoscope page).

I know horoscopes can be pretty generic and apply to almost everyone, but this part in particular definitely describes me:
They never forget anyone's birthday, and you had better not forget theirs!

(It's Oct. 9 - incase you were wondering...)

Wondering about assumptions.

Why is it that every time I go out for dinner with one of my male friends the restaurant staff assumes we're "together?"

They never assume I'm on a date with any of my female friends...

OR, maybe it's just me. Maybe I just think they assume we're together...

Winning gone wrong

I arrived home to find a package from "Alice Productions Inc." My This is Wonderland Season One DVD, I thought excitedly (it's the little things people). I picked up the package and thought, doesn't feel like a DVD. I opened the package to find this*:

They sent me the WRONG PRIZE! Even when I win I lose.

*Yes, I'm keeping the bubble wrap on the autographed cast photo. I still want my DVD!

Liberal - 102
Bloc - 56
NDP - 26
Other - 1

Dame Danielle

Which dame am I? Apparently I am like Katharine Hepburn.

On this test I scored 14% grit, 42% wit, 47% flair, and 9% class.
This is the description:

You are the fabulously quirky and independent woman of character. You go your own way, follow your own drummer, take your own lead. You stand head and shoulders next to your partner, but you are perfectly willing and able to stand alone. Others might be more classically beautiful or conventionally woman-like, but you possess a more fundamental common sense and off-kilter charm, making interesting men fall at your feet. You can pick them up or leave them there as you see fit. You share the screen with the likes of Spencer Tracy and Cary Grant, thinking men who like strong women.

Sounds kinda right...What dame are you?

Mr. Prime Minister

My covering of the federal election campaign took an unexpected turn this morning, Prime Minister Paul Martin decided to make a last minute photo op visit in Ajax this morning and I was sent to...well, I got to stand there with a bunch of members of the much-higher-paid national media and watch PM PM make chit chat with three-year-olds who didn't give a hoot about the strange old guy talking to them while they were trying to put together their puzzles.

But, it was interesting to get that close to the national campaign. Despite what the polls are saying, Mr. Martin came across as personable and relaxed. He was even making jokes. He looked nothing at all like the haggard old man in the Conservative ads. Say what you will about the Liberals and Mr. Martin and the (pretty much) inevitable loss on Monday, he hasn't given up yet.

Either that or our Prime Minister is one fine actor Canada...

I won! I won!

Watching TV can pay off. I have been rewarded for my loyalty to and my love of This is Wonderland. I won a prize for my knowledge of last week's episode. I even get to choose between an array of fabulous TIW merchandise for my prize.
  • Signed TIW Season One DVD
  • TIW North Face Fleece
  • TIW Hooded Sweatshirt
  • Signed TIW Season Two Cast Photo
  • TIW New Logo Toque

I'm going with the DVD. Anyone can borrow it to see what a great show This is Wonderland is... (well, maybe not just anyone).

Did ya know?

Apparently the problems with our health care system have nothing to do with a lack of money or inefficiencies or too many users or not enough doctors. Nuh uh. Our problems could all be solved if we just stopped funding things like abortions and sex change operations. You didn't know that? ME EITHER! But a candidate from the Christian Heritage Party attended the debate I was covering last night and enlightened us all.

We also learned homosexuals live, on average, 20 year less than heteros because of their deviant lifestyle and abortions cause breast cancer. I think those were the highlights of learning.

Oh wait, I also learned some parties should probably keep their platforms to themselves...

Vote for Pedro

My job covering the election had a hint of humour injected into when I received this picture last week for the independent candidate named Pedro.

When a photographer was sent to Pedro's to get a new photo he came back with one of Pedro sleeping, as well Pedro offered to pick his nose or look at porn for additional shots.

He's a serious candidate though. Seriously.

Now I'm on the lookout for 'Vote for Pedro' signs...

I'm it

Vicki tagged me with the three weird things about me blogging thing. I've never been tagged (that I know of). Yippee! And as luck would have it, I have nothing else to blog about other than my horror at the recent election polls. Unfortunately, it's gonna take me a while to come up with five things (not that I'm super normal or anything...).

1) I don't like my food to touch and mix with other food. Because of this quirk Tiffany brought me back a big porcelain divided plate from Germany (like the plastic ones children use), but it only has three sections so at Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc I have to use an extra plate for my stuffing.

2) I say I don't like things I've never even tried, for example cream cheese, tea, coffee - I've now tried those three and I was right about the tea and coffee.

3) I carried a SpongeBob Square Pants lunch bag to work up until a week ago. (I am 26-years-old...)

4) I will think about it and come back to update.

5) See four.

*Update* I can't think of a fourth or fifth (maybe I'm just too normal) so I give up. Enjoy the three.

Snip snip

No one noticed. This morning I was *this* close to being the sad crying girl from America's Next Top Model who Tyra forced to have her hair cut (ok, that's a wee bit of an exageration. I just dislike my hair a bit), but yet no one noticed I had five to six less inches of hair today.

I think it's totally noticeable! Keep in mind hair to left is wavy so it's shortened by that. (I also noticed grey is not my colour and I look better with make-up).

Jodes you made the blog! Thanks to Jodi and Brad for a fun place to ring in the New Year complete with drinks, laughs, music and a subway escort.

Happy New Year!
