Poo dreads! There was a customer at Indigo this week who had the grossest, scragliest fraggle poo dreads, that hung out the bottom of his coat! It was a sight that made me physically sick to my stomach. If I was in charge, my Tasteful Hair Enforcement Squad would have the power to apprehend that guy, drag him off to a dingy corner of the mall and shave his head. The world would be a better place. Canadian winters just seems to be a bad time for fashion in general. There are all sorts of materials, patterns and colour combinations that should be off limits.
I hope everyone enjoyed their New Year's Eve, whatever you did. I was in Ottawa with Kate and a bunch of my friends from Trent. We bought tickets to three connected bars. The night was all fun and games until it came time to go back to Orleans (like Burlington, if you could get there by TTC). When we left the bar wee stepped out into furious sheets of freezing rain. It was miserable. We went to the main bus arrival area at the Rideau Centre but couldn't find our bus, so we wandered around a few block, which was a big cold waste of time. Eventually we did get on a bus full of cold, wet, grumpy people. The stop that the bus dropped us off at was still a 20 minute walk through the freezing rain back to the house.
Man ALIVE! Well, not really. Saddam Hussein was executed. Big dead deal. What will this change? I guess the Iraqis had to kill them in case the U.S. ever started having these thoughts:
"Woah, these Iraqis are out of control. What they need is a strong leader who can restore peace and order. What's the name of the guy who was our friend in the 1980's? He'd be a great leader! Let's give him a call and see if he wants the job"
Today's headline on cbc.ca was IRAQI PM WANTS OUT OF JOB EARLY. I can hear Manuel Noriega updating his resume. Too bad Augusto Pinochet died on Dec 10, or he'd be applying too.
Q: What's the best way to kick off a new year?
A: Not spraining your ankle.
I woke up this morning with a sprained ankle. I do not at all remember spraining my ankle last night. Can you sprain your ankle in your sleep? Fortunately, I have the official Mondo cane to ease my walking for now. If it still hurts tomorrow, I may go to the hospital.
