liberals win minority government, the evilisation of canada is averted, continued mediocrity ensues.

They’re no ndp, but the Liberals are also no Conservatives, and that’s good enough for me.

I knew you had it in you Canada, you’re no fool. The Bushes of the world can stay in their own crappy countries.

on the eve of the election…

I urge anyone of voting age in Canada to get the hell out to their voting station and give this democracy thing a running chance. Even if you can’t bring yourself to really believe in what any of the parties are saying, even if you can’t bring yourself to not hate them deep in their souls, you still have a responsibility to choose the lesser evil, or at least stop the scariest of evils.

seriously guys,



zombie trudeau!

princess camp and poison frogs

poisonfrog.gifNew design for a blog louisa started to keep everyone up to date while she’s away doing secretarial at a summer camp for rich american girls in Maine.

Unfortunately the little yellow cutie at left didn’t make the final cut. I’m sure he will find some love nonetheless.

On the end of an era – OR – I should have more time from now on.

As I type this my computer is deleting over seven gigabytes of illicit images and videos for me, almost 4000 files. Hours of indecent labor and searching, essentially a year worth of wasted time and energy.

I will kick this habit yet.

[next time: regret!]

the perks of being a wallflower – Stephen Chbosky

the perks of being a wallflower I originally borrowed The Perks of Being a Wallflower, generally considered to be the official novel of Emo-Kids everywhere, from a friend out of a sense of irony. Like I would read it and laugh at all the emo-kids and their silly book about mix-tapes and breaking up.

It is very very very good. The kind of sad that can only make you feel happy to have experienced it, and the kind of weird that makes you sad because the book isn’t very long. It’s a kind of Catcher in the Rye but with more sincerity and less indignation.

It is 08:44 and i’ve been reading since 03:00 when I woke up. At the risk of blogging my sleep cycles, I will say that this is a book you should be reading regardless of how much sleep you’ve had. And that I will lend it to you once I get my copy in the mail.
