This week, I have been very disappointed by Ottawa.

Someone tell me, who's been sneaking doses of crazy in everyone's coffee up on the Hill?

While this is not [livejournal.com profile] goldy_dollar's requested post of Harper v. Layton in a wrestling match (WHO WOULD PREVAIL??!?!?!?), I find this equally as amusing and possibly disturbing.

Quebec Tory candidate is Opus Dei member

Did you know that Opus Dei has their national headquarters in Montreal? I wonder if they can duke it out with the Church of Scientology here...

I love sports. I love them even more when 'world cup' events happen and you get the thousands upon thousands of fans pouring in and showing their support. I've been following the Rugby World Cup and saw BBC's photostream on Flickr when I saw this that brought a tear to my eye:



RUGBY: BRINGING THE CANADIANS AND QUEBECOIS TOGETHER AGAIN. <3<3

Displays of nationalism like this bring a happy tear to my eye. Mostly because without nationalism, we'd be more on the track of Marx's utopian future and that would kind of creep me out (mostly because Marx's process to GET there was very unpleasant). So yay fans! And yay Canadians!

Yes, through the eccentric instruction of [livejournal.com profile] catlein, I have come to the conclusion that Canadian politics is like one big inside joke. Since more than half the laws aren't actually written down and are more an intuitive thing, if you don't know any historical context of Canada then you won't understand their politics one bit. People will refer to propositions that aren't actually listed in the consitution(s), but are more or less followed by most of the provinces. True, this is all insanely confusing for outsiders, but in retrospect it's what makes Canada so awesome.



I saw this written on the wall of a bathroom today and I just had to write it down. It's so...I don't know.

Alarm bells went off
When you said your heart still sang
When you're with me.
Please forgive me;
I don't hear the music anymore.
