(no subject)

Sooo... passport. Mine's expired, a few months back, and this seemed as good a time as any.

Ran down to the photography place to get my photos taken before the place closed. Result: not too terribly horrific. I think they're better than my last passport, though to the untrained eye I look exactly the same, albeit a little tidier. I certainly haven't aged, visibly. o.O My old passport is at my parents' house, so I can't really compare. I don't look like a drug dealer. I consider this a positive point. Although due to the new rule that forbids you from smiling, I do look rather stressed-out and possibly on my way to find one. Dentist tomorrow, so I have to finish the application tonight in order that she may sign it in the morning. And I will have to go to Surrey to drop the bloody thing off. (dianahobart? Is Monday a good day to do both? Surrey and then back up the Skytrain line to Pacific Central and the bus depot?)

On a related matter: I have to go to the dentist, tomorrow, at nine in the morning. I must have done something to deserve this. I shall have to plant flowers or something to even out my kharma.

Politics.

I don't know why I always find the TV news more infuriating than text news, but I do.

I mean. Honestly. "Gas prices are high... I know! Let's once again use the least little excuse to demand an election rather than actually co-operating to GET ANYTHING DONE!" Fucking whores. You are government representatives. You're supposed to at least PRETEND YOU HAVE A SOCIAL CONSCIENCE.

And look, the new Governor-General is another Very Politically Correct personage. This one's not only "ethnic," she's an immigrant *and* Quebecois. (Somebody's really going for the gold, here.) I kid. I've hardly even heard of the woman, at least not politically. But she appears to be snarky and speaks like sixty languages or something. Thus far, I approve.

In other news... potential m-preg? o.O

...no, really. O.O

(Maybe.)

EDIT: That poor kid. Dislocations and a mother who thinks creative spelling of her child's name is clever and cool. Honestly. "Emylea?" That's just mean. (This is a pet peeve. I don't hate babies. Really. ;)

MONARCHIST-AT-LEAST-BY-BIRTH EDIT: And screw you, too, Mr. Republic-pushing Freda. Most of us *like* having a Queen. Keeps the politicians subject to something. Something we seem to need. *significant look in direction of Conservative Party, the whores*
