I was leaving my house this morning to go to uni.

The roads were really slipperty and I slipped up and hurt my arm and my neck so yay.

Ok, now to take bets how far I made it......

A-the train station

B-The end of my street.

C-I made it to the top of my driveway. Turned and slip right on my ass and screamed fuck at 9 in the morning.

If you said C.....

Your right!

The woman in question said "Have a blest (blessed?) day." Which is fine, because I just say, "You, too" or "You do the same" when people tell me that. But she followed up by saying, "You DO believe in God, right?" Even though I'm an atheist, I kinda sorta nodded my head not really saying yes or no. She was like "Do you believe in Jesus Christ?" I just said, "I'm not really religious, so I don't really know."

It's like, how is this any business of hers??? UGH.

It isn't her business. When people press the question, just politely say that you're not comfortable talking about it and move along. When I worked in retail, it came in handy when the tourists would come up for the summer and try and convert me. It's firm, while still being polite. If that won't work, change the subject. Baseball is a good safe topic...unless you're a Red Sox fan talking to a Yankee fan, then leaving the room is a good option.

When I was 12 my parents sent me to a Christian summer camp in the states for two weeks (thanks mom and dad). I told everyone there that I was a Greek Mythologist and spent the rest of the time praying to Zeus.

They thought my soul was lost but they found me interesting.

Should have followed that up by showing them how much you were into naked wrestling. Just like the greeks.

What the fuck is wrong with my government?

It was never wine and roses but it has always chugged along in its own Canadian way. But now, with a worldwide economic downturn, instead of allowing our government to pass a stimulus package to help ME, the opposition parties are banding together to take down the ruling party. This has never happened.

Parties have signed agreements to push a no-confidence vote on a minority government before but they haven't created a coalition government in order to do so before.

The Conservatives-Party in power, formed a minority government after receiving the most votes but not enough for a majority rule five weeks ago. Politically in line with the American Democrats.

The Liberal and NDP-The Liberals (Liberal Socialist movement that based much of Canada's policy in the ruled the country for decades until a couple of years ago and now with the lamest party head ever, they have sought out the support of an even more leftist Socialist Labor Party the NDP (New Democrats). These guys might have my vote if I didn't vote strategically in the last few elections and I don't believe they could possibly run my country so I voted Communist last time. They have banded together with a signed agreement to rule the country if allowed to by the Governor General.

Their support? The Bloc Quebecois. Reason number 1 why this is a bad idea. The Bloc are a separatist party. They will push separatism and they will be told no and the whole thing will start over again. How left can you get?

I didn't vote for this. I didn't vote Conservative because I hate their views and their policies. But they won the election. The Canadian people did not vote for a Coalition Party and will have no say in the turnover. This is as Canadian as a coup can get people.

Don't get me started on the Governor General, the most pointless position in politics. It's a woman who got the job because she's a black woman immigrant. Period. She is as important to Canadian policy as the Queen of fucking England is. Now, because of our outdated democracy, she has power that no one person should have? Especially since she's married to a fucking separatist anyway.

I hate you Canada.
