shit damn this cbc lockout thing is pissing me off!

there’s this thing happening with the canadian broadcasting corporation. the workers are locked out and it seems there’s money at stake. I don’t really know what’s going on because the CBC is my news source and all they keep saying is ‘due to an ongoing labour dispute blah blah blah’ and i’m SAD. I hate when the CBC is broken, it makes me want to cry a little inside because it’s my friend wherever I am and it’s broken.

There was one CBC strike that was awesome though. The french broadcasting guys went on strike (like the people who call the sports) so they were broadcasting hockey with only arena noise. Man. Dudes I can’t even tell you how awesome it was. I have a decent TV that I inherited from my dad so we turned it up and were at the game. It was actually better without the commentary. I was there.

This is different. There’s lame repeats and bbs broadcasts and some really strange music choices. I’m actually tempted to volunteer as a DJ because I’ve at least heard of cuba and africa and quebec.

Anyway I’m really sad and I hope that people will shout at the government. This is NOT a strike people it’s a lockout.
.

Also the car radio has nothing to play and I don’t have time to make some new tapes. Fuck.
.

Okay onward.
.

I found my desk today, it’s cute and white and looks so much better without 700 pieces of unsorted paper on it.
.

I’m sorta sad how the thing with climber guy went down, i think it would have been nice to have more people to climb with.
.

I want to go to a rugby game a lady i know is playing in and noone else wants to come. it’s the championship. these girls are good. i’m going anyway, but it would be nice to have someone to hang out with. Well other than a rugby team full of women and their friends at their end of season party. Unfortunately I a) drive and b) have dinner plans with friends saturday night and c) teach on sunday morning.
.

May get another club for like three classes a week. Talking to the lady on Friday. Dear Universe, please I really need some more cash in my life I really do.
.

I don’t really have anything else to say and I’m sleepy. I’m sure this is bad for my ongoing comment addiction but I’m going to just have to suck it up and write something more interesting tomorrow.

  2. That’s actually a pretty early night for me, and I was in fact in bed very shortly after that… have to help someone move today.

    I love working my legs but that’s because i mostly do it either at a climbing gym or in a class… now my teacher she especially loves to stretch ze hamstrings… i am regularly unable to walk after her classes!

    you don’t have to spy on me cuz but you can if you want to! :)

  3. I’m sorry to hear about your lockout issue. I think it’s totally assinine that they broadcast hockey without commmentators… I worked on a late night talk show some years ago and was locked out…
    for no reason. Yes, absolutely no reason.
    I wonder if your beloved DJ’s are having the same problem.
    Often, if you call and offer to DJ they will tell you know because it’s not a strike effort.

    Atleast that’s how it works on the other side of the border.

    You know, honestly… us Americans get a really bad rap.

    Regardless of stimulating content, I will always read you. :)
