Blogging and the Planet of the Apes

A few weeks ago I ran this video by Bruno Mars, The Lazy Song.

I can't remember why, except that it had something to do with comparing Stephen Harper's Thousand Year Majority to the Planet of the Apes.

And was yet another hopeless attempt to try to cheer up the progressive blogosphere. And about as effective as telling the survivors of the Titanic... oh least you got to see an iceberg eh?   

But now I've got another problem.

I'm feeling too lazy to blog. And after switching on the TV today hoping to watch a replay of the Monaco Grand Prix, and somehow ending up watching Question Period with Jane Taber, I may never write about Canadian politics again.

Because watching that bubbly little idiot going on about the Clarity Act, and thinking that I might have to listen to that nonsense for five more years, is more than I can bear.

And that was before the thought struck me that FIVE more years was probably way too optimistic.

Because it'll probably take half a century before the left unites, and we can even think of winning again.

And I have to be brutally honest eh?

I've always been lazy, and I'm not sure that in fifty years I'm going to feel like blogging. Or doing ANYTHING.

In fact, I'll probably be even lazier than Leonard...

OMG. You know if I had any weed I'd probably light up too.

Except that now I'd be afraid to do that, in case my neighbour turned me in, and I was sentenced to life in prison. Or worse.

All of which to say that over the next few weeks blogging may be sporadic, and even more erratic than usual.

And if the sun ever comes out, you'll probably find me sitting in this chair a lot. While the water slowly rises...

Staring into the distance.

Pondering what I'm going to write about today tomorrow next week next month. Please let it not be Sarah Palin.

Wondering where my Canada went.

And of course thinking... holy Planet of the Apes @#!!$!

It's going to be a LONG fifty years...

hi Oemissions...I'm still going to be around for most of the month. But for the sake of my faltering sanity I've been ordered to spend more time at the beach than blogging. And who am I to RESIST? ;)
