where am I: falling way behind on everything

  • Best quote I've heard in a long time: "I'm not saying he's lost his mind. I'm saying only that I wouldn't draft him in a sanity fantasy league" --Keith Olbermann, about Glenn Beck.

  • Healthcare is like water; it should be given free of charge to everyone. Meaning no one--not me, not Bill Gates, not the homeless guy at the bus station--should have to pay for basic healthcare other than through appropriate taxes. And I really, really don't mind if my taxes go up to make it happen. Because healthcare, like water, should be controlled by the people, not the corporations.

  • I've noticed myself becoming more skeptical about everything recently. Life, death, taxes, you name it. I also notice myself sounding more like a socialist all the time. If I had to label myself, I'd be a Social Democrat, which is not a socialist, no matter how much Social Democrats USA may say it is. Also, if the NDP ever decided to open up a US branch, I'd carry their card.

  • Rachel Maddow/Chris Hayes would be an interesting RPF. It would be like almost reverse slash, or something. It wouldn't be slash, but it wouldn't be entirely het, either. Yes, I know I'm weird.

  • Why didn't anyone tell me that Justin Bieber is Canadian (I guess it's because it's not something people go around randomly announcing)? This means he's eligible for inclusion in C6D. I find this scary somehow. And he's not just Canadian, he's from Stratford. I'm torn between being intensely curious and really not wanting to know what some C6D fannish-types could do with this information.

  • My daughter's goldfish is named Justin Bieber (this is irony, people, not teenybopperism). She also really wants to go to Niagara Falls in the spring. Curiouser and Curiouser.

  • I've been in Toronto in the winter and have not since been burning with desire to repeat the trip. I'm doing it anyway. as;dflhasdf.

  • I love this vid. This song was a B-side, but IMO it was the best one on the record:



  • Icon mostly unrelated to post. I use it because I can.

I usually stay at Clarence Castle, which is a beautiful, spotless (and incredibly affordable) place. It has both dorms and single rooms and is right downtown near everything. It's not so near the concert, though, which from what I see is on the water; however, the TTC goes everywhere.

It's very hard to believe that at one point I hated Toronto. What I really hate is driving in Toronto, so I don't do it anymore. The city itself gets more awesome every time I go.

Oooh, that looks like a nice place. And I think I am driving so I will have my car.

why don't I have a toronto icon?

If we could get four people and commandeer a four-bed dorm, it would cost each of us like thirty bucks per night. Or, y'know, four people could also split a hundred-buck-a-night hotel room.

Which way do you drive? We could meet up somewhere and then drive into Toronto. I won't drive in T.O., but I have no problem with riding with someone else who is. :D Although we'll definitely have to do the TTC at some point, just because it's there.

Actually, until CanCon, I'd only been to Toronto in the winter. Eeeep. The wind off the lake is enough to peel your facial skin.

I've only been to Cape Breton in the winter. I really want to go in the summer (or even better, the fall).

Y'know, if we hadn't been friends for so long, informing me that Justin Bieber was under your cut would definitely have functioned as a deterrent rather than an invitation to click. ;-)

Hehee. It scared me, too.

I am not actually a Headstones fan, but I am sighing in envy anyway, just for the gathering of fangirls that will take place.

I'm not as fangirlish about the Headstones as some, but I love them and honestly never expected them to reunite, ever. Also, yay for fangirls!

My students, both males and females, hate Justin Bieber and speak of him as if he's Satan or something. I find this hilarious. Of course I have yet to google him and figure out who he is.

He's a 16-year-old kid who was discovered on YouTube and now has Beatlemania-level crowds of girls (and some gay boys, I'd wager) following him and going to his concerts. Beats me how I missed he was from Stratford. I guess I'm just not in with the Bieber Fever crowd *g*.
