It pains me to no end to know that *I* know more about the contents of the healthcare reform bill before the US congress than many Americans who oppose what they think is in them. I'm Canadian, it shouldn't be so. No matter what side of the debate you are on, please find out what is really in these bills. It is important. This is a piece of public infrastructure that the US is 50 years behind the rest of the industrialized world in building so you *need* to know, as a citizen or resident, what it is you are for or against. breaks a lot of the myths and overstatements coming from both sides of the debate.

I did all my physio stuff today. I did 20 mins on the bike, and man, does my ass hurt. Adam has my eternal love for bringing me a real cycling seat, but my ass is just not in shape for biking. I don't think I've been on a bicycle since grade 10 (maybe?) until I got the stationary bike. It has been suggested that I get some bike shorts, but really, I don't think that I am that into stationary biking to commit to Spandex.

I am doing. Not what I sometimes think I should be doing. Maybe not what other people think I should be doing. I am doing. Most days I don't want to. Most days I probably don't even have to, but I do.

Mostly I'm pissed that no Canadian carrier picked up Project Runway now that it moved to Lifetime in the US.


  1. Thank you for trying to educate a few folks from the States. I'm with you on the disappointment with the lack of factual knowledge too may people have regarding the multiple proposals in Congress.

    BTW, great job with the bike. :)

  2. As for the bike seat - it gets better. When I started biking to work, I thought I was going to die, via the bruises on my ass. But as long as you do it regularly, you build up some sortof internal butt callous (that sounds awful - I mean it in a less awful way) and the seat hurts less.
