As the eve of 2005 has passed, we find our creative juices running fairly low. We had a very relaxing holiday, but after spending the past three days in party/celebratory-mode, we find our desire to even write this blog post on the low end of low.
But alas, we shall force ourselves to please the mighty blog gods with a post…
We have a couple things to mention…
Federal Leadership. We’re still having a very hard time getting excited about this writ period. All the party leaders are boring and uninspiring. We don’t particularity enjoy Paul Martin, but we enjoy Stephen Harper even less. We are also fairly disappointed with Jack Layton in this election (so far), he’s just not very inspiring. Please, someone offer VISION. Please.
Income-Trusts. We don’t really know much about them, but the entire thing seems slimy.
Edmonton Strathcona. We’re still unsure of who to vote for. We think we like our local NDP candidate, Linda Duncan, but we haven’t ruled out voting for Green candidate, Cameron Wakefield, as a protest vote.
For those of you interested, there are a couple of Edmonton Strathcona election forums coming up in the near future (at the University of Alberta and Knox-Metropolitan Church). We’ll post more info when we confirm them.
Blogs/Webboards. Mike Klander. Gordon Stamp. Seriously folks. Did they think that people weren’t reading their stuff?
As for Mr. Klander’s Olivia Chow comparison, we can assure everyone that Oliva Chow (see right) is much much better looking than a Chow Chow dog (we met her last year).
Also, see Derek’s take on Mr. Klander… hahaha. keep it up, Mr. Raymaker.
As for Mr. Stamp, well, we don’t think very highly of Alberta separatists, so we’ll leave it at that.
Movies. We’ve seen a couple of good movies over the holidays. We saw the Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, Fun with Dick and Jane, and Walk the Line (for the third time…). They were all good. Fun with Dick and Jane was particularity funny.
haha. We’re watching Office Space as we blog. This movie is too funny… har har har…
