I miss sleeping in…

I haven’t been able to sleep in for a couple of weeks, and tomorrow is more of the same. Last weekend we got up early Saturday to help Ian move, and Sunday to go biking (which never happened…) and now that I work Monday to Friday again I don’t have my Fridays off anymore.

Tomorrow I’m volunteering at another north shore mountain biking race. Should be interesting. I should be in bed. I’m not quite ready to go yet, though, I still have to pull my stuff together so I can just get up and leave tomorrow. Trying to decide if I should bother to bring my bike – I’m thinking not, I don’t really want to ride out those trails without company, and I don’t want to ride them out with strangers either – they might not wait for me, or know that I need waiting up for, and really, how can I ask for that from complete strangers?

I’m almost over the cold I got last week, but of course Adam has it now. He’s sleeping on the couch next to me, and sounds really bad.

Last night was fun; I went out after work with work folks to Subeez. They had good food, and good Sangria, and Strongbow on tap, among other things. I think I may go back. It was really nice to hang out with work folks outside the office. They’re a good bunch, and a lot of fun.

I’m watching the news. I shouldn’t watch the news. Harper’s tendency to blame everything that’s wrong on the previous government, while something that most new governments do, is seriously out of hand. It’s like his running schtick. Likely trying to bolster his group by putting everyone else down, as he sets himself to try for a majority government… possibly this fall, according to people who know more about the inner workings of politics in Canada than I do. I’d just like to see someone move forward for a change… quit with the blame stupidity, get over it an move on with your political life already. Personally, I’m no supporter of Harper, but if you’re going to sit in the chair then do some work and quit whining about the last guy (and his club) who sat there.

I know how to shake things up… Bloc Quebecois for PM!

    Thank god David Suzuki is NDP!

    I am no fan of conservatives! Thank God David Suzuki is an NDP, and way to go Mr Suzuki by getting in Tory Environment Ministers John Bairds face by saying his environmental plan is a “disappointment”. A disappointment, indeed! 🙂

      Re: Thank god David Suzuki is NDP!

      Yeah, that was pretty entertaining really.

      Naturally, at the Foundation we have no political party that we support. We do our best to work with whoever is in power, or work with those who aren’t in power to try and create change…

      People keep asking me why David Suzuki hasn’t tried to run for prime minister… we asked him, he said “what are you, crazy?? I’d be a TERRIBLE prime minister!” Of course he’s right. Also, he’s 71. heh.
