Siding (2)

  • Siding is ordered. Should be here tomorrow or Wednesday.
  • Got the whole house wrapped eight feet high in one-inch foam board. Tomorrow: the second level, I guess.

In the news—Brian Mulroney is the greatest self-promoting megalomaniac since Sir John A. MacDonald:

Dear BM, there’s a reason that Will Ferguson put you in both categories in his groundbreaking work Bastards and Boneheads, which, for those of you that don’t know, is a survey of Canada’s prime ministers, one which points out that every prime minister we’ve had since 1867 was either a bastard or a bonehead.


Tonight at judo: Me and X (yes, that’s her real initial) did some lazy uchi-komi, then I stretched out her arms with waki-gatame and ude-hishigi-juji-gatame. Then I came home and came within two points of getting skunked at crib by my wife and my mother.

Later, Jetsons!

  1. Hadn’t heard about that one, but here’s what we were discussing just last night: A popular comedy show called This Hour Has 22 Minutes* actually ambushes our politicians on a semi-regular basis, and for the most part, the politicians play along. For instance, Jean Chrétien, our previous PM, was presented with an award from 22 Minutes for “Longest Acting in a Political Role”, during a press conference, and he gave an acceptance speech (“I’d like to thank my mom, and my dad…and my maquilleur**”). Try doing that to your President. You’d be dead before you hit the ground…

    * Named after an old weekly news-in-review program called This Hour Has 7 Days, and the fact that CBC’s national news program, The National, was 22 minutes long.
