Happy Carbon Tax Day! I mean, Happy Canada Day!
Posted July 1, 2008on:
Yes, I’m just a wee bit bitter about the carbon tax gas tax that kicked in today (as if you haven’t guessed already). I haven’t gone out yet today, but I saw on the news that gas prices are up above the $1.50/litre mark.
But, moving on! I promised over at Wet Coast Women that I would try not to bitch about the carbon tax.
In other news, I have become a twit. Although, I find twitter a wee bit sluggish at times. Flaky, even. But you can follow me over there if you like.
Darren had to get up at the buttcrack of dawn today to go play golf for a 6:30 tee off time at a course that’s about an hour away. The funny part is, not only does he get a free round of golf, but since its work related, I think he gets paid.
And I? Slept in until 7:30. Drank coffee.
My biggest decision today is whether to wii or go to the driving range. Or both. And maybe set up some golf lessons.
I haven’t been out to whack some balls in about 2 years. The closest I got last year was when I was out of work for 12 weeks and volunteered at Darren’s company golf tournament last year (they paid in beer and food). Not that’d I’d even attempt to play Swan-E-Set (which is a very nice, swank place) because some of thoses holes? Brutal.
We went to the driving range on Saturday and I whacked about 60 balls. My back and arms still ache.
And that, will be the extent of my Canada Day. Happy 141st birthday! You still look great.
What are you doing for Canada day?
