Politics Nerds Rejoice!
For today is a good day, a day in which Parliament resumes and we get to watch our favourite cast of characters pantomime outrage, despair, and accomplishment. The fate of the softwood bill, Canada's role in Afghanistan, the future of Canada's environmental policy, the Accountability Act languishing in the Senate, the proposal to revamp the Senate, wait-times guarantees, re-opening the SSM debate, and much, much more are all HANGING IN THE BALANCE in what promises to be THE MOST IMPORTANT SESSION OF PARLIAMENT IN CANADA'S HISTORY.
In other news, I get to write some government tests on the morning of my convocation. Fun!
I spilled my coffee all over myself this morning and ever since I've smelled like a double-double. I think it's kind of appealing, and it gives me a marketing idea for Tim Horton's. Hey, if Gustavo Chacin can have his own fragrance, surely a national treasure and icon can have an eau de cafe can it not?
Also, it's a real treat to watch the original versions of Star Wars again. After ten years of Lucas's tinkering, seeing Han shoot first, stop-motion space battles, and Luke telling R2-D2 that he doesn't taste very good has been a real treat. I love the Special Editions and the 2004 DVD Editions, don't get me wrong, but nostalgia holds a special place in my heart.
Lastly, construction on the Stones' stage has begun. Judging the amount of trucks & materials already covering the far end (grrr) of the Commons, this is gonna be one HUUUUUGE show.
