Always look on the bright side of life...

So, I'm on vacation this week at the 'country house' (I love the juxtaposition of how fancy that sounds with out really really not fancy the house is - esp. the upstairs being powered by an extension cord from downstairs, which is, I'm sure, completely up to code...).

It's a mix of vacation and work on some renos on the house.

I seem to be sick.  It just started today, but it sucks.  (and no, I'm assuming it's not listeriosis)I've spent the entire day in bed, but have now left that area because john is pulling up a floor there, which means, you know, not as relaxing as you might think...

So, as you can imagine, I'm grumpy at being sick, but...

I just had this moment of intense joy that was really funny.  I'm eating a banana that is at it's *PERFECT* ripeness for me.  I'm very picky about bananas and there is about 20 minutes in it's entire life cycle when it's perfect.  This one, it's perfect.

So, I laughed at myself at the intense joy, and I figured, hey, I bet I know a group of people who'd like to laugh at me too!

so, laugh away my pretties, laugh a way...

Anyone want to vent frustrations?

Anyone feel like coming to the scenic countryside to vent your frustrations by tearing up floors and bashing into walls? 


There's beer in it for you...

Still no?

Oh well.  It was worth asking.

You need 50 dollas to make me holla, I get paaaiiid to do the wild thing!

Someone just drove past my house with Funky Called Medina playing really really loudly out of their car.

I was immediately thrown back to high school, or, junior high, or whenever it was.  Okay, well, not so specifically thrown I guess, but it was weird.

Ahhh.  Ton Loc, where are you now?

It looks nothing just like me!


Okay, it looks nothing like me, but it's cute...  (and with the right bra, my boobs could look like that...)

what's the name for...

You know names that are names for both men and women, like Sam, or Chris, or Robin, or Dale - that kind of thing.

Is there a name for that type of name?  I always call them ambidextrous names, but obviously that's just me being a goof.  Is there a real name for that type of name?

Sometimes stuff that's gross is also kind of funny...

Okay, so, you know the church that has the URL godhatesfags?

Well, as part of the Summerworks theatre festival here in Toronto there is a play mocking that church called The Pastor Phelps Project.

Apparently the real Pastor Phelps (of godhatesfags fame) got wind of this and is now coming to Toronto to protest it.

I wrote about it on my Mooney on Theatre blog here.

Here's the thing.  It's horrible, heinous, disgusting, gross, and many other such adjectives, but I can't help laughing every time I read the flyer.  It's so over the top that it feels like a flyer mocking the church, not something the church themselves put out.  It's all so ridiculous that it's hard to take seriously.

Now, if only we could laugh at that stuff, but they don't come to Toronto, and it doesn't effect anyone in anyway.  That would be perfect.

Oh well, in the meantime, welcome to Canada, Pastor Phelps, "Land of the Sodomites" and happy to be so.



P.S. Whenever I read "Land of the Sodomites" I hear it to the tune of "Land of the silver birch, home of the beaver."  And I have to say, "Land of the sodomites, home of the beaver" makes Canada sound like a very interesting place indeed...
