I Give Up

I can't help it. More and more lately I find myself listening to American election stuff. How can I avoid it? And though I am a patriotic Canadian, our current election campaign is unyeildingly boring. We're All-Bran and they're Fruit Loops. 

Honestly, is anyone paying attention anymore? 

I ran across our local Conservative candidate the other day. He was standing outside a gas station during rush hour waving a Canadian flag... it just seemed so sad...

Then there's Sarah Palin. I have no words. Granted, I haven't been paying much attention, but really - is it true that proximity to Russia counts as experience? I'm all for the underdog, but sometimes there's a reason why the big dog wins.  

Moving right along - 

I don't have anything to talk about. My nephew is still awesome and has been labelled "advanced", at least by the country bumpkin doctor. Still counts, if you ask me (and you did).

Work's going good. My scores are going up and I'm presenting at an international conference in two weeks, so that's fun. 

Two weeks? Wha? Me? That's crazy talk! What shall I wear?? 

Yeah, that last thing is probably a little nerve wracking - I've never really tried to be "inspirational" before, so we'll see how that goes. 

I have tomorrow off, so maybe I'll be clever then.

Yes, we are soooo Fruit Loops over here. I can't really watch anymore, but I when you drive by roadkill, or an accident. Sigh.
