Dear Friend of the BCCLA Normally at the end of the month we’d send you a list of the rights violations we’ve been working on. This month I want to tell you about what might be the biggest issue we’ve ever uncovered. Thanks to our contacts made over our recent northern outreach tour, and our [...]

Migrainy Talked to my mother last night Very tired Too much to do Disorganized Having hot flashes more or less continuously My room is a disaster, although the clean clothes do outnumber the dirty ones I actually cooked dinner last night – potato salad. Jeff said there weren’t enough onions but that was because I [...]
We were watching House last night. A brother wanted to sacrifice a lung (which would shorten his already shortened life) to save his sister. Jeff looks at me and says, “You can’t have my lung.”
NUN FIGHT. Scanged from PZ Myers’ blog. soooooooooooooooooooo tired. But I got more sleep than yesterday !
I lost my keys yesterday (I left them outside, what a moron) but Jeff found them. phew
Wikipedia article here. The executive director of the Elizabeth Fry Society talked at church today. I’ve bitched about Sheriff Arpaio for allowing a woman to deliver her child in irons, and today I found out, while tears exploded out of my eyes THAT CANADIAN CITIZENS WHO GIVE BIRTH IN JAIL DO SO IN HANDCUFFS. My [...]
I should have been doing work for church, but instead I went for a walk in East Van with Carly, Paul and Katie. I could not pry Jeff loose from Nascar and Keith was working. Carly has gone from being gorgeous to being unearthly, courtesy of a completely natural set of blonde streaks due to [...]

I remember him from Torcon II. I saw him at a Toronto Star lecture, and I’ve seen his ‘biopic’. I loved his television criticism. I squirmed to “I have no mouth and I must scream.” He’s only 76, and he will be missed.
I wasn’t expecting one, but I got a raise!
But that doesn’t mean it isn’t happening. Check out the heatmaps.
Ack. Whoever said quinoa was easy to harvest was a lying bastard. You have to strip the heads, roll the seed pods in your hands, soak the seeds and rinse them about a hundred times (must determine a method that doesn’t involve gallons of water). They’ve finally come to the point that I can eat [...]
Sleep! Sleep is what does it folks.
kitttttays! Big wild ones. From Chipper.
I got to see Katie’s apartment yesterday! We can tell she’s a real New West Girl, she can see the bridge from one window. She doesn’t think she’ll be cold this winter, but the scarred single pane windows (they haven’t been painted since Tommy Douglas was alive, if appearances are anything to go by) and [...]
