Campaigning on Hastings at Cambie

Click the title and listen to the podcast . the day was filled with meeting people and listening to their concerns. You can be sure, though, that I got a word or two in edge-wise.

From the poorest of people to the other end of the spectrum they mostly like the hat, especially in front of Marc Emery's place.

Later Aloofus and I, went to crab park and he had a great play with a lovely large breed female pup while the adults talked politics.

(I tried to talk naturally and kept the editing to a minimum. sorry about the ahs. I'll try to do better next time but at least it doesn't sound like my earlier attempts at editing---"Cyber speak")

Yesterday's Journal as a podcast (click)

Yesterdays journal: Here is something I blogged on The shotgun blog about it. I can't sleep because I'm in a creative mania:

"Here's a bit of news today!

I have actually plunked down my deposit sent in 150 word bio and handed in my nomination papers today at city hall! I'm an official politician.

Paul Hancock who is the chief officer stunned me by saying that he expects a turn-out of 32%.

The bio blurb should be on the official city website along with my smiling bud oracle mug shot, along with my website link, tomorrow.

Also it will go out to every household in Vancouver in hard copy in a very nice booklet. 250,000

As I walked from the rear of the City Hall, after signing in, I was struck by the beauty of the north shore mountains in the distance with the Olympic flag in the foreground.

The thought crossed my active, herbally enhanced imagination, that it would only be fitting if Vancouver had a modern version of the ancient Greek tradition of the altered state arts, an Oracle on Council welcome the participants of another ancient Greek tradition of the war arts.

Don't you think?

All I got to do to get on council, is to somehow light a fire under the lazy ass of apathy. simple, eh!"
