are you feeling better?
PMMJcheetahmaster on February 25th, 2005 05:48 am (UTC)
Dramatically, thank you for asking. By last night I was even eating regular food and suffering no ill effects. Didn't really have enough time to get everything I wanted to do yesterday done, but after the epic sleeping session, seem to have burned most if not all the germs away.

So, all else being equal, leaving around noon for Lancaster for my convention. Tragically wasn't able to convince anyone else to go along with me; this may be because I spend the rest of the year describing what a terrible city Lancaster is. Who can say.

"When Mr. Martin put his finger in the air over missile defense, he felt a chill," complained an editorial in Toronto's Globe and Mail newspaper. "This is not a strong prime minister. Canada will pay the price."

While I agree he isn't strong, he does know that the people here are vehemently against the MDP. Interesting. I am sure the media desk is going to light up like a Christmas tree this morning. *sigh*

I AM SORRY MY PEOPLE DON'T WANT TO PLAY GUNS WITH YOUR PEOPLE!

We can still hang out and have beers though!

Oh, a lot of us Americanos are also anti-missile defense, don't get me wrong.
Tales from a suburban touristasimplelife on February 25th, 2005 07:09 am (UTC)
O, I know most of my Americanos are, although I see this as becoming a horribly heated political issue in the next few months. But we won't care, cause we'll be having beers. All dimplomatic relations should be done under the influence and possibly involving a kareoke death match.

Honestly,I doubt it'll be that big an issue. It's been one of Bush's "priorities" since day one, but it's gotten nowhere (other than a *lot* of money dumped into it.) This may partially be because both recent tests of the plan have failed miserably. But anyways.
Tales from a suburban touristasimplelife on February 25th, 2005 07:18 am (UTC)
Aye, I meant here. People seem to be OMFG NOW THE US HATES US vs YAYAYAYAYA WE HATE BIG MISSILES. The conservatives are breathing down the backs of the liberals about the issue, and I can see it coming up if a vote of non-confidence is had after the gay-marriage bill comes up and we head back into elections....
PMMJ: Lenincheetahmaster on February 25th, 2005 08:07 am (UTC)
Wow, I'm actually kind of surprised it's that much of an issue up there.
Tales from a suburban touristasimplelife on February 25th, 2005 08:18 am (UTC)
It's mostly an issue insomuch that it's another fireball for the conservatives to launch, and you know how elections can get [if it gets that far].
