  • Meme from ceilidh ( btw, if you ever decide to change your lj name, dear, let me know. I want this one. :))

    1. Grab the nearest book.
    2. Open the book to page 123.
    3. Find the fifth sentence.
    4. Post the text of the next 4-7 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
    5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest (unless it's too troublesome to reach and is really heavy. Then go back to step 1).
    6. Tag five people.

    • These cuts, and two-tiered health care, have been continuously supported by almost every major newspaper in Canada for over a decade, including the Globe and Mail, the National Post, and the rest of the CanWest chain.

      The Conservative Party under Stephen Harper's leadership is clearly against universal social programs, notwithstanding its cries of indignation after the Supreme Court ruling. Harper told the House of Commons on October 28, 2002, that privatized health care is a "natural development." This mirrors an interview he gave in 1997 to the National Citizens Coalition newsletter, The Bulldog, in which he said, "It's past time the feds scrapped the Canada Health Act." The National Citizens Coalition, with which Harper has long been associated, advocates that corporations and charities take over the social functions now performed by governments (exactly the position of the Bush White House) and believes that the government's role should be limited to national defence, protection of private property, and law enforcement. The corporate-funded, Vancouver-based Fraser Institute considers Canada's social security system both immoral and an inefficient use of taxpayers' money. It advocates a mix of private and public charity for the "deserving poor" and has lobbied for a new definition of poverty that would apply only to those families who lack the "basic necessities for absolute physical survival."

    I blame fspider, in the nicest way. Erm, for the book rec, not for Stephen Harper being evil.

  • I'm finally going to get to see Away From Her. Will review later. Last time I got lost on the way to the theatre. Tonight I'm going to the Cable Car Cinema (which is the coolest place!), and I know where that is, so I should be okay.

  • In some meme, I told someone I'd talk about some of my icons. I think it was on_a_hill. I can't find the post. Help?

  • Also, GIP! Inspired by troyswann's love letter to sdwolfpup's love letter!vid (first one on the list at her site). I also made this one last night, which I'm waaay too proud of:

    I now have eleven icons with Fraser in them; nine are just of Fraser. Maybe I should stop now?

  • Still need to see the dentist. I'll be into full-blown abscess territory if I don't, liek, soon. And um. I'm sort of going on vacation sorta soon. Ow?

  • If it's cool enough tomorrow, I plan on shutting out life and writing. It's been too hella hot to do it this week, and I do want to get my ds_shakespeare fic done.

Hey, halleluyah!

"He looked around, around; he saw angels in the architecture, spinning in infinity, and he said: Hey, hallelujah!"

That is one of my favorite lyrics of all time. (And of course I adore sdwolfpup's vid!) Now you've put those last two words on a stunningly gorgeous Fraser portrait!

I therefore spontaneously pour oodles of fannish love upon you.

I have only one Fraser icon so far, as I've been a little Ray-obsessed (okay, a lot), but I post it in your honor.

Re: Hey, halleluyah!

The Fraser portrait in question comes directly from the vid; it's that little smile Fraser gives at "hey, Hallelujah". I think it says volumes about who Fraser is, and I'm SUCH a Fraser fan I had to cap it.

sdwolfpup gets all the credit here. Also Fraser (and by extension Paul Gross), of course. *g*

I love Ray K a lot, honest! I have a couple of Ray K icons, but oddly not a single F/K icon. I've been looking, and haven't found the exact one I want. Which means I'll have to make one, despite not being really good at it.

Thank you for your kind words. :)

It was me. I'll find it.

OMG OW ABSCESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *cringes*

No abscess yet, but I need to head things off at the pass, ASAP. Eep. And yay for finding!

You can't make too many icons of Fraser though...

Keep telling me that. I need the reassurance. :)

*sigh* I know. Zathras can never have anything nice. ;)

You can NEVER have too many Fraser icons. Just...get one F/K icon so he's not so lonely :-) Be careful with that abscess (ouchie!)

I want to have a F/K icon. I'll have to make one, because I can't decide which of all the ones out there is best. They deserve the crème de la crème, after all. :)
