The rules:
1. Put your music player on Shuffle

3. YOU MUST WRITE THAT SONG NAME DOWN NO MATTER WHAT. (This is in capital letters, so it is very serious.)

Next!


I'm so sick of this damn PC world we are living in. Heard on the radio this morning that one of our councellors in Toronto (one who actually works FOR the people), is in hot water for using a racial slur during a speech about illegal immigrants. Wanna know that the supposed slur was? He used the term ORIENTAL. Yep. Not sure what word he was supposed to use instead, but somehow, that general non-derogatory term, somehow managed to offend someones delicate sensibilties.

Like COME ON PEOPLE. I can understand if he used some of the terms that have been listed in Wikipedia but he didn't. Have we gotten so PC that we now have to carry around a dictionary that lets us know what words and terms we can use in public so that NO ONE gets offended? And who would produce this book? Because you know that if one ethnic group were to provide it, somehow, in some way, it would piss off the rest of the world. I am so fed up it makes me want to offend EVERYONE. And frankly, I wouldn't care right now if I did. In fact, as soon as I can come up with a paragraph that will insult EVERY group out there, I will be posting it. Let the chips fall where they may - this BROAD has had it.




I watched the elimination show on American Idol last night for the first time this season. We said a (cheerful) goodbye to Danny, Luke (ok not so cheerful), Asia'h (again, not so cheerful) and Kady (we all jumped for joy at the loss of another TLLB). Personally, I think the damn show takes too long - although I was happy to see Blake Lewis perform. Still love that man. And I know Dana knows where I'm coming from. Of course, he's no Taylor.....THUD.
:: picks self up::
Sorry about that - been awhile since I've thudded....and of course I forgot my mat....


Wow. Am I making sense to anyone today? Cuz right now I'm seeing double of everything, and the stuffed Kermit on my desk is dancing to Bon Jovi - did I get enough sleep last night?


More caffine - I think that might be my solution. That would be great if it was the solution to every problem wouldn't it? Of course, that might result in coffee shortages, and you try telling a Canadian that they're out of Timmy's coffee....you would definately need riot gear. Personally, I'd be hiding in the nearest Starbucks - they wouldn't look in there.


Good news on the license front - security one that is! I got a letter last week from the Ministry saying that they've taken time to review the charges that prevent myself (and others) from renewing their licenses and have removed the theft under charge. That means I'm getting my license back a WHOLE lot sooner than I thought - like possibly by the end of the month!! I'm so incredibly stoked that I could cry. I've only told a select few people tho - so let's keep it under our hats. SHHHHHHHHHHHH!


Rod's been sick this week, and to top it off, they haven't booked any work for him. So, I guess it's ok because he can get better, but it sucks because we're going to Buffalo next weekend for a shopping trip (good call Ma - book a trip to the states during March Break - there won't be a wait at the border - noooooooooooooooooo not at all.....*insert rolling eyes emoticon here*) and that'll affect the amount of shopping we get to do. Oh well, we don't need much anyway. It'll just be nice to get away for the weekend with the family.


On a final note - I will be going to see We Will Rock You once again. And in case I forgot to post it the first time around, please check out this hottie.


Yvan Pedenault is the lead as Gallileo Figaro, causing women young and old to swoon every time he opens his mouth. His vocals are just incredible. And the young woman playing Scaramouche is a lovely girl named Erica Peck, who auditioned for Season 3 of Canadian Idol, but didn't make it through to the top 10. It's a fantastic show and if it's playing ANYWHERE near you - run, do not walk, to the box office.


I think that's all for today kids.

Stay sane inside insanity ~ and never forget your towel.

good meme...

mine will be up Monday

I guess he should have said Asian-Canadian or some such thing....

Smooch - good weekend

First and most importantly, GREAT NEWS ABOUT YOUR JOB! I've got my fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly.

As to "Oriental," it does carry a negative connotation, similar to "colored." The correct term is "Asian." All that said, I don't think most people realize that Oriental is considered a slur, so it's mostly likely the person said it in ignorance, rather than with any malice.

Travis said...

Someone once told me Orientals are rugs and Asians are people.

Outstanding to hear about your license! But I won't say anything until you get it for sure. LOL!

Meribah said...

Wooo! Way to go on the license front! Here's hopin' it all works out soon.
And, no, you cannot have Taylor for your collection! He's mineminemine! (Hmmm, I sounded like somebody else just then...I wonder who? **cough**Jojo**cough** LOL).
By the way, it's eerie how some of those song titles are right on, isn't it? :)

Yummy pic! I can't decide if I am white, caucasian, irish-american, italian-american, or what today. What's today's special on that again?

Dana said...

Cool you got a Monkee, but you didn't get a Taylor either. Hehe!

Hm...but I did get a Blake and you didn't. Sounds like we have trading cards, eh?

Sheila (Charm School Reject) said...

I hate all the PC crap. It drives me insane. Soon, everyone will have to stop talking completely to avoid "offending" anyone.

We Will Rock You?! We don't have that in the States, I don't think. That would be SOOOOO awesome to go see!!
