the good news: the paramour is home; fog did not interfere.
the mediocre news: the reformatories won the federal election, and gained seats to boot. the only thing that keeps this from being really bad news is that at least they did not win a majority government.
our riding did not fuck up, it voted NDP as usual (though they lost a little). and the conservatives gained a bit. the greens gained a bit more, and the liberals lost a lot (as did the marxist leninists).
the ABC (anything but conservative) campaign in NL seems to have worked. we might have to look towards something like that in BC as well.
it was overall a lousy outcome for the liberals, and a pretty good one for the greens, and the NDP -- looks like edmonton-strathcona might go to them; the sole spot of hope in alberta! (linda duncan lead by 0.9% last i checked -- oh, and CBC? please not to be calling ridings prematurely. that sucked. kthxbye.)
au revoir, stéphane dion. who's next?
