Canada Votes

Looks like we're headed for a Liberal minority government with the NDP holding the balance of power. Sweet.

My MP, Anne McLellan, is in yet another tight race - last I checked she was 34 votes ahead. Hope she makes it. Really, really hope she makes it - don't Albertans find it embarrassing to vote faux-Tory en masse? Yeesh. Come on, people.

For all the complaining about vote-splitting on the right, I note with some consternation that in the riding of Edmonton Strathcona, where Conservative Rahim Jaffer has won re-election, the combined Liberal-NDP vote was some 2,0000 votes greater than his winning total. Bah.

Stupid Carelessness

Sylvia is away at a wedding in Ontario, and she left her rabbit with yesterday I picked up the bunny to put her back in her cage so I could vacuum, and she struggled and I lost my grip and dropped her, right on the corner of her cage.


She started hopping around on three legs, so I rushed her to the vet emergency centre downtown, and the x-rays revealed that I'd fractured her hip. Fortunately, six to eight weeks of "cage rest" (i.e., the bunny has to stay in the cage so she doesn't hop around) and she'll be healed.

You don't really know what "low" feels like until you've broken the hip of a helpless bunny, let me tell you. I really, really feel bad.

I suck. Poor bunny.
