How long do certain products that take a while to go through last in your household? Or how long do you take to go through them if you lived on your own and guests didn’t use much of them, like toothpaste or perfume/cologne? I’m not talking about weekly renewables here, like cartons of milk, I’m talking about things like shampoo bottles, soaps, spices, etc. If you didn’t know answers to these questions, let me tell you about my really easy way to find out!
Have you ever sat on a fence? If yes, hopefully, it wasn’t a fence with pointed pickets! If not, imagine it. Either way, you would probably agree that it would hurt after a while, with all your weight loaded on to the small surface area that are the tops of those pickets. By chance, English has an idiom of sitting on the fence to mean waiting, which has the exact same outcome.
Can someone create a meme about the restoration of the long form Census in Canada?
The new Liberals government under Justin Trudeau just announced they will restore the mandatory long form Census as promised in their campaign, via Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Navdeep Bains.
As an analyst, I know the value of this form and what Stephen Harper was trying to do in abolishing it, making sure nobody has any evidence to point to the impact of anything he did while Prime Minister. So today, in celebration of the restoration of the long form Census, I offer up this joke to make sure to send Stephen Harper one of these mandatory forms once I saw the fabulous photo on the CBC. 😉
(not sure who to credit the photo as it was only an icon to the story I saw on Facebook)

One thing I’ll be better at blogging this year is music I hear for the first time, likely old songs, which I really like and want to share. I love it when I find new music I really enjoy, so it’s only natural to share. While the songs will often be old since I don’t care for a lot of music these days, it’s new to me.
This first entry for 2014 features Fleetwood Mac‘s Over and Over, written by Christine McVie. I just love its mellow nature that is also present in some of her other songs like As Long as You Follow (also embedded below). If what they say is true about being able to see people’s soul through their eyes, or hear it through their singing and songs, then I KNOW I love Christine McVie’s soul!
And if I were the Devil, let’s just say I’d be paying a good premium for it! LOLMuahahahaha….
Did that ruin the mood of the whole thing? Enjoy!
