Three random things

Good morning everyone. I spent another night in my new home in Victoria last night, off now to Kelowna this morning. As the title suggests, three random thoughts for you today:

-As you can imagine, I (like any good Canadian) enjoy watching the Liberal Party of Canada flushing itself down the crapper for all to see. One of the biggest laughs I got regarding their current state can be found HERE.

-I was thinking last week about what i'd miss about Fort McMurray. At first I thought i'd miss seeing floatplanes coming in and out of the valley, but I soon remembered that I live about 1000 feet away from one of Canada's busiest water runways (to reinforce that, two floatplanes have taken off since I started writing this.

But last night I had to run to Wal-Mart and when I came back outside I noticed how dark it was. Then I realized it.

I'm really going to miss the northern lights.

-Speaking of Wal-Mart, the reason I had to go was to get a shower curtain. Now i'd like to know what idiot thought it would make sense to sell shower curtains with no rings to attach them to a pole. I mean really. If you need a bloody shower curtain, would it not stand to reason that you'd need something to hold it up?


  1. maybe he/she thought you would want the fancy rings?!

  2. I couldn't agree more about your first point. DOn't you just love it now that it is the liberals who have no communciations/message discipline?

    As to your point about missing the northern lights, I know that we probably don't get them as much in Saskatoon as you would in McMurray, but I can tell you that that is one of the many reasons why I can't wait to get back to Toon Town.


    - PS: I'm jealous about the float planes

  3. When I left Fort McMurray, I wondered the same thing: what would I miss? I also concluded it would be the Northern Lights, as well as one other thing: hearing Newfie accents wherever I went, heh. My first busride back to Ft Mac after I moved to rez was when it dawned on me, as there were a lot of Newfies on the bus that night.

    I also miss the sunsets, as they always seemed to be a bit more spectacular there.
