Writer's Block: Winds of Change

You suddenly have power to remove one regional/local elected official from office (state/province level or below, not national) -- who would you give the pink slip to and why?
Rob Fucking Ford, the Mayor of this City.

For those who don't live in Toronto, here's a quick summary: Calgary gets the cool Muslim mayor who marches in the pride parade, we get a homophobic racist white dude who wants to CUT ALL THE THINGS.

Writer's Block: Say What?

What is the weirdest question you’ve ever been asked?
I was walking to work one day and a man came up to me and asked,

"Excuse me miss, would you like to smoke some crack with me?"

I declined, although I do wonder whether he meant he would give me free crack, or that we should buy crack together.

True story.

Writer's Block: Tears of Joy

What was the best day of your life?
My first day at U of T for orientation, when I met Ellie and Roxanne, who I'm really close with to this day.

Writer's Block: You’ve Got Mail!

How many times a day do you access your email account?
Oddly enough, since getting a Blackberry, I almost never access it on my computer unless I have to write a long reply. I'm getting another phone soon (Samsung Galaxy Nexus S II), and how much I check my email on the computer will depend on how good their mail app is.

Writer's Block: Sh*t Happens

What is the best way to develop a positive attitude?
Go through a bunch of shit and come out stronger than ever.

Writer's Block: Vision Test

Do you believe in love at first sight?
I believe in attraction, chemistry, and lust at first sight. Not love. Romantic love is something you actually have to know someone for.

Writer's Block: This is a Recording

If you were to make an album consisting of only covers, which songs would you pick to sing?
Ooh, this is an easy one. Seeing as I play a lot of covers and all.

- Jane - Barenaked Ladies
- Landslide - Fleetwood Mac/Dixie Chicks
- Defying Gravity - Wicked Soundtrack
- Damn Town - Kat Goldman
- I Don't Want to Live on the Moon - Sesame Street
- Sunset Boulevard - Charlie Robison
- Sing - Dresden Dolls
- The Rainbow Connection - Kermit the Frog
- Baby Girl - Sugarland
- You Belong With Me - Taylor Swift/Teenage Dirtbag - Wheatus (as one song, a medley)

Writer's Block: Hello, World!

What is your earliest memory?
Being weighed on the baby scale at the doctor's office, and the doctor telling my mom that soon I would be too big for the baby scale. I have no idea how old I was at the time, but I assume I was...little.

Writer's Block: Thank You Month

To my dad, who got me a netbook because:

a) I fell down the stairs while holding my old laptop, and while the inner workings of it are at least partially fixable (one of my friends transplanted the hard drive from my old old laptop, and if he wipes everything and reinstalls the drivers and Windows 7 it should work), one of the hinges is broken. Oh yeah and I'm kind of limping but not much can be done about that for now.

b) I kind of needed it for the long battery life and portability (because of my back/neck pain, I need to really minimize the amount I carry in my backpack).

So, essentially, my dad is awesome and I'm a dork.

I should point out the fall was many hours after sobering up from New Year's, though.
