I’ve been too lazy to post about stupid crap I find on the net (J-Walk tends to grab most of it anyway), and not motivated to post about personal occurrences, although here’s a summary of recent events:
Wally has diarrhea, which he’s been letting us know about by the mess he leaves every morning on the living room carpet the past few nights.
Searching for Bobby Fischer became one of my favourites when I first saw it in a theatre in 1993. I was hooked after the opening narration by 8-year-old Max Pomeranc that recounts Bobby Fischer‘s rise to fame as one of the best chess players in the world and ends with the whispered words: “He disappeared.” Then we discover the narrator is a child prodigy, a genius chess player who some call a young Bobby Fischer. But where Bobby Fischer was a nut, this kid stays on a path that keeps him sane. He plays baseball and goes fishing and doesn’t have a mean bone in his body. It’s a good story and a good movie.
There is no trailer available online, but there is this scene:
We’re having a general election in Canada on October 14th, 2008. I have a few questions:
1) If you’re Canadian, what party are you voting for?
2) Why are you voting for that party?
3) If you’re not Canadian but you follow Canadian politics (which is likely no one), of the 5 political party leaders, who would you vote for, and why?
4) Back to Canadians: From the 5 party leaders listed below, from best to worst, who do you think would be less likely to do the most damage if they were Prime Minster?
I know these aren’t the most probing questions. I’m not expecting many responses. But what the hell. We have a blog here. We might as well use it.
Green Party: Elizabeth May.
New Democratic Party (NDP): Jack Layton.
Bloc Quebecois: Gilles Dueceppe.
Liberal: Stéphane Dion.
Conservative: Stephen Harper.
I haven’t provided direct links to any of the party web sites. I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t vote for any of them if I visited their web sites or saw any of their campaign ads on TV. I get most of my news from CBC Radio and CBC.ca.
