- stabbed myself in the throat with a french fry. From the inside. I'm pretty sure I have a giant lesion in my throat wall now.
- watched a really sweet, charming, and funny film, Rocket Science. How can you not root for the shy kid who stutters but wants to win the state debating championship (and thereby win the heart of/revenge upon the girl)? This film is stuffed full of quirky and hilarious characters, and the best use of a cello to make a statement I have ever witnessed.
- found the personalized Chinese calligraphy card that I bought at the Chinese Cultural Centre a few months ago. I have adopted "Banb" as my gangsta name. I also quite liked the "Sturt" card, but since I don't personally know any Sturts, I did not buy that one.
Gung Hay Fat Choy!
- nurtured my inner political junkie. Not only do we have the ever-fascinating (and perplexing) American primaries to follow, we now have a provincial election coming up in a few weeks (with the first real possibility in 37 years that we will not end up with another majority Conservative government), PLUS there could very well be a confidence vote in the senate over the Tory's proposed crime bill (or over rather the time limitations that Harper has forced upon the senate to make the vote). So it is shaping up to be an interesting winter after all. Which of course brings to mind the ancient Chinese curse:
"may you live in interesting times"
