When I am King

Yesterday was an interesting day. Mary and I got up bright and early to take the care in to the garage that put new brakes on it a month ago. The brakes are still incredibly and annoyingly squeaky, and I've been concerned that perhaps the brakes are not in the best shape after all. The fellows at the place looked at them however, and assured me that the brakes are perfectly safe and the squeaking is just a "Taurus thing." I have my doubts that it's a Taurus thing, but I do believe that my car is safe, if annoying, to drive.

In the afternoon I got a phone call from Raven asking me to go look after her kids that evening, so she and her lovely husband could spend some time together. I was more than happy to head out to Sherwood Park and do my part. The boys were both locked away in their bedrooms when I got there, so all I needed to do was entertain the girl. I spent the entire time being bossed around (in a very cute and imaginative way) and pretending to visit various characters from Kids CBC. It was a fun time, though I discovered that I know the entire "Doodlebop Pledge" by heart.

When I got home Ian and I had an interesting conversation, which once again made me wonder how on earth I ended up married to someone who is the complete polar opposite of me when it comes to politics. Anyways, I love him dearly, but we can't talk politics without me ending up in frustrated tears and quivering with rage at him. You'd think I'd have learned not to mention that sort of thing to him by now. In case you were wondering, our chat last night was about censorship...wow. Just thank your lucky stars that my husband isn't the king of the world.

Tonight is my pole dancing class, it's been a week already. My bruise from last week is starting to heal, and doesn't hurt so much anymore, but I'm sure I'll fix that tonight.

Censorship is wrong.

And I'll kill anyone who advocates it!

I'm sure I'll regret asking, but what IS the Doodlebop pledge?

And I thought I was the only one who ended up in tears and quivering in rage after talking to my husband...
