I’ve updated WordPress, fixed some technical problems caused by linkspamming jerks and installed a new theme. Dare I say … we’re looking good?
The other, was the psyche scarring TV movie, The Day After, which of course, confirmed all my fears.
I was so scared of nuclear war I wrote Prime Minister Trudeau and asked him to do whatever he could to stop the war, and to let me do anything I could to help too. I sealed it with wax from a candle because I didn't want anyone opening it except him. I did get a nice form letter back, and there was no war on his watch, so I guess it worked.
Today I discovered this WikiHow article on how to survive a nuclear war, and it was a nice refresher. I already knew pretty much all of this from my "Got to be ready when it all goes down" mindset in the 80s, but it was good to catch up.
As I read, I was worried that it was going to kick off yet another round of nuclear war paranoia, but then Google came to the rescue with their targeted ads, including:

Ahh, there we go. Fear of nuclear war: expunged. Fear of going bald: renewed.
No holiday is more polarizing among my friends than Valentine’s Day.
Some fall into line, celebrating love with their loved ones in romantic and/or cheesy ways. (Caveat: I am one of those)
Some hate that it’s a made up holiday, created by Hallmark to boost flagging winter sales.
Some hate that it’s a holiday for couples. Originally, I think people hated it because if you’re not in a relationship when Valentine’s day rolls around you feel left out. With many, this hatred carries over even if they happen to be in a relationship. In most of the cases I know, they seem to have hooked up with similarly minded people which is good, or at least with people smart enough to know this subject isn’t one to start a fight over.
This blog post originally started out as a Valentine’s Day best wish to everyone out there, no matter your Valentines celebration orientation. I wanted a cute little graphic to go with it. At some point recently, I had seen a stormtrooper lego Valentine on Flickr, so I thought, “How hard could that be to find” and went to Flickr to do a search.
I was gratified to find out I was right, it was easy to find. I was, however, fascinated and delighted to find out that there were so MANY stormtrooper Valentines out there!
Here are some of my favourites:
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
