"Blood In The Streets It's Up To My Ankles..."
Despite what you may have heard, like I just did on an NBC affiliate in Seattle, Canada did not suffer from a coup d'etat yesterday. If only. Then once the smoke had cleared we could fill Parliament with chipmunks or kindergartners and see who does a better job. Hmm? Kindergartners? Connor Dumbass, Member of Parliament (congressman for my friends to the south). He already acts like the world revolves around his so that wouldn't be any different...
I've been feeling a little adrift since December began. I have a million and one things on the go right now, the house is in chaos because of Christmas decorating and... well I don't really have an and. And I don't really have a million things on the go, it just feels that way.
I have two projects I have to get finished before Christmas. These are my goals for December. First, is to finish painting MY FREAKIN' BATHROOM! Way back in... like August when I only had a few weeks of work left, I started talkin' smack about how I was going to get all this work done around the house, like finishing the stupid painting. I was going to get this done in the first week or so of my unemployment, finish all the big projects and then enjoy my time off. Then my brain imploded. Now it's December and the bathroom still looks much like it did three months ago. IT WILL BE PAINTED BEFORE CHRISTMAS! So it is written, so shall it be done.
Second is finishing off a project I started on Christmas Day last year. A story that was inspired by presents each of the boys received and the movie Pirates of the Caribbean which was on TV that day. The story is mostly bits and pieces, ideas that I've thought up over the year and jotted down but still haven't fit together yet. Of course, now that I've given myself a deadline do you think I could find an ounce of inspiration? Instead it's easier to read other people's blogs and play games like this. It's a geography game. They give you a world city or famous landmark and then you have to stick a pin where you think it is. 407,000 points my first try. I was 3 kilometres off the Sydney Opera House. 3 kilometres!
Wait, what was I supposed to be doing? Bah humbug!
