In GF

I wonder what crazy adventures and wonderful times will be had during this holdiday-week? I'm back in ol' Grand Forks until around the 29th, when I shall head back to the 'Loops.

And in case you only know how my life is going by reading this weblog, I got the role in After the Fall that I so wanted. So yes, that's After the Fall: on the 11th, 12th, 13th, 18th, 19th and 20th of January.

Meh, that's all for the time being. The bus-ride was tiring. G'night!

Something Worth Fighting For

From the website of the BC Federation of Labour: Scrap the training wage, increase minimum wage to $10 per hour.

My sister works at Subway back in Grand Forks. It's her first job, and she recently got a raise to $7 an hour... so she's now working for "only" a buck less than minimum wage. The training wage is such horseshit. The provincial government believes that my sister's time and labour are worth less than that of someone who has held any job for 500 hours. Never mind that she works as hard and does as much as anybody else.

Late-Night Essay-Writing Party

Carly, Lindsay, Laura, Alex and I are all finishing our directing analyses right now. It is such fun. I'm writing page twenty right now.

The first three of six performances of Father's Day are complete, and all went well. You must come and see if you haven't already... we play on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 8:00pm, and the cost is ten buckeroos.

And the auditions for the next TRU show, Arthur Miller's After the Fall, were tonight. I want the role of Quentin more than any in my life, yet it also terrifies me.

I guess that's it for now.

10/20 Changed Everything

Years from now, people will still remember where they were at 6:30 on the morning of 20 October 2006. If you're a resident of Stetson Place like me, you were out in the parking lot waiting for the fire-department to say you could go back inside. The women who live a couple of doors away and a floor above us dropped a cigarette on their outside couch and got it going pretty good. When the fire-alarm sounded, I remember feeling confusion, as I knew I hadn't set my clock's alarm. I then realized it was the building's alarm-system, wandered aimlessly into the living room, then back into my room because I could see an odd red reflection through the blinds. I stuck my head out the window to observe violent flames ripping out of the building about four metres away. I informed my roommate to make haste, adorned myself with pants, shoes and my grad-hoodie, and then exited with said roommate in a timely-yet-orderly fashion. He then fucked off to buy breakfast somewhere, while I was able to talk with some people in the building I rarely do, including Tracy, my upstairs neighbour Mike, and that guy from some of the polisci classes I've taken. Perhaps we'll all make "I Survived the Stetson Place Apartment-Fire 2006" t-shirts.

Now, if you'll excuse me, as I was awake reading until 5:00am, I have decided to go back to bed.

Hey, I Couldn't Have Said It Better Myself!

Talking Like a Real Perv

The leader of Pakistan, General Pervez Musharraf, took time out from accusing the U.S. of threatening to "bomb Pakistan into the Stone Age" (a charge which may be true or may not, who knows) to launch a salvo against Canada and its troops in nearby Afghanistan:

Pakistan's President Pervez Musharraf told CBC Tuesday that the Canadian military casualties from fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan have been insubstantial compared with those suffered by Pakistan.

Musharraf brushed off the suggestion that his government was endangering Canadians and other troops in Afghanistan by not doing enough to root out the Taliban and al-Qaeda and their sympathizers.

"We have suffered 500 casualties," he said. "Canadians may have suffered four or five."

Pardon my French, sir, but fuck you. Fully 36 Canadian soldiers (and the diplomat Glyn Berry) have been killed in Afghanistan; and many more have been wounded, including a close friend of mine. I defy you to find me a mathematician who will tell you that 37 is equal to four or five. Unless that's what they teach at your country's Islamic fundamentalist schools.

Speaking of assholes, where is that Osama character? You and the U.S. are supposed to be in charge of killing or capturing him, aren't you Pervy? Maybe that's why you guys are still allies; you both can't get shit done, aside from pissing off other countries.

Yet Another Reason Why Patrick Stewart is a God Amongst Men

It's right here.

If I could meet any one celebrity human being in all the world, it would without a doubt be this man. He's just so awesome, it's unbelieveable.
