pain is the staff of life

family day eh

Posted in Uncategorized by ruthanzo on February 16, 2009

i was caught off guard today it being ‘family day’ and all, at least it is where i live in ontario.. turns out don getty former premier of alberta had a son with a coke habit that he blamed himself for so he instituted ‘family day’ in the early 90s to make everybody in alberta pay his being a deadbeat dad. now ontario has it (holiday not coke habit). (quebec not holiday, coke yes) the only problem with family day is there’s nothing to do..everything is shut..well, not everything. the laundromat was open so i did a couple of washes and the gas stations are all open so i got some gas.. and tim whoretons was open. tim’s must have special dispensation because people would starve otherwise..but i draw the line at tim’s. that old rolling stone song could be reworked into a tim hortons ad..tim’s is on my sides, yes he is..the governments are sending mixed messages. sTIMulus indeed.

    Isn’t there a Timmy Ho’s in Kanadahar too. Maybe its because he used to be with the Maple Leaves (Toronto not Gnashville)its become part of someone’s notion of the national fabrik. … but that’s edible fabric so you can eat it like the bowl in which they used to serve the “soup”
