And speaking of the election, I’ve now seen a few lawn signs popping up. Unfortunately, since I live in the riding of an incumbent, who happens to be a Cabinet minister and it happens to be a pretty well-to-do riding1, so I don’t really have a hope in hell that the NDP will win the seat here. But I have at least seen a NDP lawn sign2,3, so at least I know who my NDP candidate is now.
On a related note, I’m still taking suggestions on creative ways to destroy the BC-in-name-only-Liberals brochures I’ve received in the mail. So far the best suggestions I’ve recevied have been to line a cat litter box with them and to blenderize them. I’m leaning towards the latter because, although I do have access to a cat, I really like the cat and wouldn’t want to subject him to looking at that icky brochure, even if it is when he’s taking a poop.
1Note that I am a basement dweller and not someone who even dreams of affording one of the well-to-do homes in this ‘hood. 2On my very own block, no less. 3Have yet to see a Green Party sign though.
With the BC provincial election just more than a month away, there’s been surprisingly little said about it. I haven’t heard much in the news, I haven’t seen a single lawn sign and I don’t yet even know the names of the candidates in my riding1.
So it was very much to my surprise when I arrived home today to discover not one, but *two*, packages in the mail from my local neocons-that-call-themselves-“Liberal”-party candidate:
They lose points2 with me for sending me identical packages – such a waste of paper! – and even more points for addressing one of those packages to me with my ex-husband’s last name. Double ick!
However. You may remember from the federal election campaign that I have a penchant for destroying Conservative*brochures. So double packages of brochures means double the destructive fun!
To recap, I have used the following methods to destroy, or attempt to destroy, Conservative* election brochures in the past: shredding, burning, burning while doused in rubbing alcohol, soaking in vinegar. I’m now taking suggestions for methods by which to destroy these BC (Not-In-Any-Way-)Liberals brochures. I’ll pick the two best (feasible) methods of destruction and use them, recording the results for your enjoyment.
Let the suggestions begin…
1I figure I have enough time to find out who they are and what they stand for now that I have a bit more free time.
2Who am I kidding? As if they had any points to lose with me!3
3So now they are even more in the negative with me than they were before4.
