What’s he smoking? Crack! Rob Ford: “Yes, One Day I Do Want To Run For Prime Minister” >http://huff.to/HZDQZY
First peek at tomorrow’s Toronto Star editorial comic: shared via Meanwhile in Canada -D
The facebook inspiration for the below post:
Now a few people following along might be thinking
Nina… how do you think you can be Prime Minister?
because I am not the only person in my family who works or worked for the government
I started out as working poor but my family is like the middle class kennedys
and one of us had a much more public career
my uncle Gus worked for Revenue Canada. he died in 1992, about 6 months after this video on his bathroom floor following a stress/diabetic related heart attack.
My Dad worked for the Forestry Service and Canada Post, he’s retired now and has been off and on the heart transplant list in British Columbia since 2007.
and then there’s Uncle Bjarni.
One of my first published articles in the Simon Fraser Universi ty Student paper
a detailed interview with Marc Garneau about a planned Mars mission in the early 90s
he explained about surfing gravity wells and getting there in 6 months
we talked about sex in space
and we talked about a few other things that didn’t make the article
I had tried to sell the article to the Vancouver Sun, but they passed on it. It was too hard science I guess
I remember even after Garneau went up
most people in Canada had no clue we had a space program at all
not like now
with Chris Hadfield being the Elvis of space
before Elvis, no one had heard of being a rock star
now everyone wants to be one
no matter what their job is
I became agoraphobic in August 2011.
by January 2012, I was weeks from my own dead on the bathroom floor death at over 360 pounds.
In February, I began the transition to vegetarian and as of November 2013, I am down to 220 pounds.
I also got divorced in 2012 and experienced a further personal setback.
this is me from this very morning.
