It has recently come to my attention that my blog sucks. Who brought it up? Me. And i think Me is right!!
I once was able to post various food combination formulas on a weekly basis but this has become quite a difficult task since my return to Montreal, Canada. In case you’re wondering, my oven works once and then immediately needs repair hence my increased utilization of the convection/toaster oven thingie. This “oven” business has caused me to give up all hopes on making anything substantially big or anything at all for that matter as i have to bake in batches instead of all at once due to the small size of said toaster oven. BALLS! I also don’t have a lot of baking/cooking ware at the moment and have, for a while, had to cook something then immediately clean the pan to reuse it to cook something else for the same dish. BALLS!
So in light of these unfortunate events, vanity GPOY(first letter of whatever day i blast the internet with vanity shots), reblogs of cute animals and or ridiculous kitchy things i adore and must own in the near future, i have decided to add a more personal touch to this “blog”. Something i should have done from the very beginning but felt a bit odd about mumming events and situations due to certain followers following a certain someone. Well to Hell and Balls with that i say, i will code phrase without naming names if i shall!
I was in the States for a whole, humm, 7 years or so?… First moved to the Philadelphia area in 2005… Onto Nevada and back to YUL in late 2010. Having been an ex pat for most of the last decade i have missed out on, seemingly, a lot of radical political changes done in my own country of birth. Now let’s not be unrealistic and pretend like corruption is something all governments other than the “american” one are immune to. In the last decade our little Canadian bubble has been bursted with not one but 2 “overthrown” governments, and i say in the last decade but it’s more in the last 5 years. Sponsorship scandals interim PM and botched elections later we are now facing another impromptu election here in the next month due to Harper being such a republican ass. No we do not have republicans here in Canada… they are called something else and Harper is their leader.
If you would like to learn more about our wonderful Prime Minister (president, for you americanos) here’s his official website:
It is really enlightening and it’s got a drawn picture of him holding a cat, quite compelling. Also his wonderful feats are featured on this instructive website.
I feel quite terrible about not having been present during this whole time, not just physically but mentally… i did not keep track of what was going on and who can blame me when “american” politics can be so insanely riveting!! I am now faced with having to learn all parties agendas and getting to know all the opposition leaders so to make an educated decision. Last election saw the lowest turn out in voters in all of Canada’s history and we ended up with this gem as our PM and we are now realizing this immense mistake and are ready to do something about it. And it’s obviously not just us, the “people”, considering the circumstances. I don’t want to be stuck having to vote for the closest in the race just so we can get rid of Harper but it is almost dire and necessary at this point. How unfortunate is that!?
I feel like i left the U.S, who had such high hopes with Obama but is now feeling like the change is coming to slow (huh, seriously? It’s going to take DECADES to fix this mess so hold on to your shit covered horses), and i’ve come back to… huh… well the U.S in 2007! Ridiculous. It’s a time machine!!
Wait a minute… maybe Harper’s onto something! Has he secretly figured out a nationwide time machine system and is just testing it on us and we just didn’t know about it?
Holy Zandig! Well WE KNOW NOW, HARPER! WE KNOW!!
That might change everything.
Ps: my awesome political jargon
PPs: i’m so cool and political and stuff
