Alas, dear reader, I also have my slow days.
Aside from the production being shot across the street from me…
…it’s been a drab day. It’s kinda soggy and April-y and it’s still that time of year when it’s better to stay indoors with a couple of kick-ass kung fu flicks and something nice and warm to drink. Or do something else to keep oneself warm. I certainly hope the cast and crew of “The Bridge” brought their galoshes.
Hmmm. I guess I just broke news on that, didn’t I? It’s Canadian made so … that’s … always … something … isn’t … it? (face grimacing with discomfort). I’m hoping it’ll be good, let’s just leave it at that.
But what I really wanted to do was to go on a little excursion into the local news to do some skimming between the headlines. Of course, a link is presented to each story, but I’m pleased to summarize them all for you as well as to boil them down to their essential component in the true and neighbourly spirit of brevity. Also, so I have something to write.
National Post -> Flu fears halt travel plans for Some Canadian schools
Summary: This one time, at band camp, they cancelled our trip because of an outbreak. So the tuba player…
One word: mild.
Toronto Star -> Can 56 angry Tamils save one girl’s life?
One word: seriously?
Toronto Sun -> This is prepared?
Summary: Durham region: memories of short-longs, “racing” pickups with flames down the sides, and the smell of freshly turned manure in the mornings. Here’s Port Perry. OH FUCK! THEY LET THINGS SLIP! THE VIRUS IS EVERYWHERE! PORT PERRY FUCKED US ALL! — Calm down, Michelle. Take a deep breath. Everythying’s going to be okay.
One word: chill
Globe and Mail -> Not just us: Cockatoos have rhythm too
Summary: Rhythmic spasms in avian species are the primary indicator of Avian Influenza. Look like Mexican parrots too!
One word: fluff
I know, it’s all fluff. But that’s okay, it’s a fluffy kind of day.
Now I’m going to retire to my fluffy pillow to think fluffy thoughts. Perhaps to masturbate. We’ll see where the evening takes us.
I suggest you do the same (take your pick); unless it’s sunny outside where you are, in which case get the hell outta here!
