Cost of the War in Iraq
WARNING!!!! if you know me personally, you may read my diary, but if you do, you take the chance of hearing things you don't want to know, misunderstanding what I've written and being hurt by it. If you are unsure if it is ok to read, save yourself and me the grief and heartache, and ask first!!! Please note that this is a DIARY, ie my subjective feelings, hearsay, suppositions, and outpourings of ranting of the moment. It does not represent objective news, the whole of what I think of a topic or someone, or even a thought-out representation of any of the above. Keep that in mind. Thanks. * Here is a Diary Etiquette Read Me.
Andrew's New Look Poll, and Common Law Couples
Email Andrew: He wants your input on the new look:
"Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with whether you like the new look or not. I don't mind a quick sentence in the body too to sum up your thoughts, but no need to write too much, just a quick "I like it, 8/10!" or "I don't like the new colors" or "change is bad, boo" are fine."
That's from the news diary.
On other news... cancelled the kiddo's first speech therapy appointment today, as well as the mandarin class this afternoon, due to our coughing, snottiness, and my lack of voice. Hoping that we'll be a bit better tomorrow, or I might kill the social worker with the sheer intensity of my coughing fit after she's asked me two or three questions.
OK, small son is asleep... back to work.
Oh, the question on the news today is "should common law couples have the same rights and responsibilities as married couples?" Apparently in Quebec, over 30% of couples living together are not married, and half of kids have unmarried parents, compated to 13% of couples in the rest of Canada being common law.
Let me know what you think...
a p.s. since Jane left her (contactinformationless) comment: This isn't a "we MUST stick with bubblegummy old diaryland" issue, it is an issue of updating to IMPROVE it or make it worse. I am a grown up too, and really, I am on blogspot, facebook, typepad, and they are all "grownup", but aren't black and grey and dismal. Updating Diaryland could be a great and wonderous thing, where we think "ah, fresh, up to date, userfriendly, attractive!" not "this depresses me so much I want to leave". Even for guys eh.
3 People have left cute, callous or caring comments on the wench's wordiness!!
ps, you'll need to email me for a username and password
Goodbye Michael. May your next life be kinder to you. - Thursday, Jun. 25, 2009
