Okay, here's the deal: Blogger has been having problems with their counters as of late, specifically with those blogs marked as having adult content. Now, this particular blog was marked as adult content since it is written as a train of thought, including all the rotten language that flows through my head constantly :) As a result, I marked it adult for that, not for having pornographic photos all over the place. So, simply put, be aware that there is language on this blogsite, and if you are offended don't bother complaining because I wrote this so that you'd know it before reading, and it is your fault if you don't believe me and decide to possibly get offended anyway. If language of a vulgar nature might make you upset, go read something by Disney.


Snowstorm Blankets Toronto, And Other Stuff

Yeah, it sure is white out there.  Yet another reason to flee to the Dominican Republic as soon as possible, let me tell you.  It came down so bad this morning that we were experiencing thunder snow.  You read that correctly, thunder snow.  Wonderful, ain't it?

The roads are pretty treacherous, so much so in fact that it actually convinced Scott to stay home, realizing he was going to spend so much time just trying to get to work that he'd pretty much have to just turn around and come straight back once he arrived, if in fact he did.  Just not worth the aggravation and loss of time and money, and I certainly second that.  The highway looked just terrible at 6:30 this morning, and I couldn't see myself going out unless an emergency was in the offing.  Since TTC drivers have been getting fired for texting at the wheel, my confidence in letting others take me where I might need to go is at an all-time low as well.  Better to just stay home, shovel out, and wait until tomorrow when the plows have made a dent in the roads.  Course, it isn't as though I personally was going anywhere anyway, so the whole thing for me is pretty much moot.  Ha!

Anyway, I was up fairly early yet again today, and took the time since to write the second in a series of posts explaining why the earlier days of the Nintendo gaming systems are still some of the best days I've ever had playing games, and you can find part two of that series over at the Confessions blogsite.

And finally, congratulations are in order for the peoples of Tunisia, Egypt and Jordan.  Tunisia for ousting a horrible dictator, Egypt for forcing a horrible dictator to remove himself from the country's next election process and never run again, and Jordan for getting your king to replace the Prime Minister and his government.  All of these changes came about with basically peaceful demonstration, and all should be commended for this could have been a very bloody week.  Lives were lost, there is no doubt, but the scale of what could have happened is so large that it is a wonder that so few were sacrificed for change.  Mourn the losses as heroes, not martyrs, and look towards a brighter future.

Now, the question is whether China and North Korea took any notice?  I know the internet is hugely curtailed in those countries, especially concerning the type of news coming form these uprisings, but wouldn't it be great to see change tear these governments from their foundations as well?  All I personally hope for is peace and a stop of corruption in government causing pain to the people.  World peace is too ridiculously large to wish for, but an end to suffering under corrupt governments, oppressive regimes and war-hungry leaders would be a nice place to start.

That...and strippers, lots of sexy strippers.
