Now now, don’t run off! I know I said the “v” word, but I assure you this won’t be a long post about voting, the electoral process or the boos or yays of this politico or that! I can imagine after that loooong electoral process that y’all have down there in the U.S. you’re all rather sick of hearing about voting. I can relate; one just gets tired of the back-and-forthing, analyses, bickering, doomsdaying etc. Up here in Canada, we too just had a Federal election, which was mercifully brief. And in my province we also are having municipal elections (today, as a matter of fact), as well as a provincial election in the spring. *sigh*
Don’t get me wrong – I’m always happy to exercise my franchise. Doing all three, though, can be tiresome. In any event, as I’ve been procrastinating in researching my local candidates for the municipal election I was left with the task of trying to sort it all out today before the polls closed. This isn’t just for Mayor of my town (3 candidates), but also for town council (23 candidates for 6 spots) and school trustees (16 candidates for 5 spots). *phew!* As you can imagine, I’ve spent most of the day tracking down information about these 42 people. I want to vote, so I need to know something about who they are and what they stand for.
I was also trying to get started on a post for tomorrow, as well as trying to think of something off-the-cuff to write about today. This led to much distraction with youtube. To wit:
This BlackAdder segment is for all us theatrical types 🙂
