I would just like to rant a little here, as I love my country and the election process and yadda yadda….but there is a problem. You see, when Bush was re-elected, people everywhere, all over Canada in fact hooted and hollered about how ridiculous it was to re-elect him.

Well in fact, I think Canada has one-upped the United States, we have in fact re-elected a prime minister for a second time whose election platform was, in fact, non-existent. His entire campaign was spent defending things he did in his past 3 years as prime minister, he didn't put forward anything new, and yet SOMEHOW he GAINED seats. So, while we rip on someone who at least puts forth a plan of action (no matter how much we might disagree with it) we turn out to have no problem at all with someone who puts forth no plan in Harper. Annoy.

On another note, hooray for the Tony Romo of the Dallas Cowboys being injured, I sure hate the Dallas Cowboys.

free time, ahoy!

Okay, I have a summer job, which, sometime in November will turn into a full time adult position. As we all know summer, according to school rules, ends at the end of August, or rather, after Labour Day. This leaves me with approximately 2 months in some jobless void (a sort of frictional unemployment if you'll allow me to flex my economics degree).

So with this short term freedom - during this time I intend to mouch off the system (Unemployment Insurance) - I am trying to figure out what I should accomplish, not accomplish, or how i should enjoy myself. There are a couple of options:

  1. Drive across Canada to British Columbia for approximately 1 week there. I figure this will kill a good 2 weeks of time as it takes about 3 days to drive out there and 3 days to drive back, maybe a little more if I'm in no hurry. I've never seen my own country really and I figure now is as good a time as any plus one of my housemates from University lives out there, so I can stay with him for free.
  2. Fire out to Thailand in November for about a week and a half. I've got a buddy at school in Australia who also wants to go to Thailand, so we would meet there and pick up one of those many Thai hookers…double wrapped of course…
  3. Sit at home and do nothing… boring…
  4. In the mean time, throughout September and October, I have baseball twice a week and am entering a bowling league (I am actually overly excited for a bowling league), but that will not keep me busy, what is there to do in your own town to make you not bored?

Help me out here people! Make my decisions for me!

On a side note:
A conversation with andrew:

(andrew) imagine
(andrew) a mexican japanese person
(andrew) they'd have an amazing 14 year old moustache

I think their moustache would be outstanding at any age
