In honour of the Prime Ministerial debates yesterday (French) and tonight (English), and the Vice Presidential debate, tonight, here's who I'm voting for this election: Trevor Strong, of the Arrogant Worms Party. Or possibly Chris Patterson of the Arrogant Worms, I don't know their voices well enough to tell which is which. Whichever one it is, personally I don't see how we could go wrong with his political platform:


IF I WERE PRIME MINISTER

lf I were Prime Minister, I’d transform the land
All things would be glorious under my firm strong hand
I’d enlarge Prince Edward Island, and shrink the tax on booze
If l were Prime Minister, the Leafs would never lose

If I were were Prime Minister, French and English would be gone
There’d be no more Two Solitudes, 'cause we’d all speak Klingon
And I’d give my buddies jobs they weren't qualified for--
Wait, I’m so sorry, I think that’s been done before

If I were Prime Minister, Canadians would tan
In the Gulf of Mexico, where I’d move Newfoundland

If l were Prime Minister, I would use my power
To finally make the doughnut our official flower
And I'd make it illegal to sit and bitch and whine
Though that might leave Canadians with too much spare time

And I would be Prime Minister, if only for one flaw
I don’t think that I could ever live in Ottawa

If I were, if I were, if I were Prime Minister
If I were, if I were, if I were Prime Minister
If I were, if I were, if I were Prime Minister
If I were, if I were, if I were Prime Minister

I’d bathe in Maple Syrup and I’d have a talking moose
And Mounties would massage me, to keep me nice and loose
I'd get rid of the Queen, replace her with my cat
Appointment to the Senate would be trial by combat

I'd solve all the problems of this country's apparatus
By granting every person nation status!
I'd encourage global warming, move the jetstream further north
And I'd ban all politicians, except for me of course!

If I were, if I were, if I were Prime Minister
If I were, if I were, if I were Prime Minister

I'd be super great!
And you'd all love me!
You'd have to!
'Cause I'd make it the law!

If I were, if I were, if I were Prime Minister
If I were, if I were, if I were Prime Minister!

OK, this one's mostly for [livejournal.com profile] owens_mom, but anybody else who wants it can download it too. My file says it's by Three Dead Trolls in a Baggie, but I know the Arrogant Worms recorded a version of it. Not sure whether I've got the Trolls or the Worms version here, but it sure sounds like the Worms to me.

No, I don't know why this sudden intense need to re-post a link to one of the loveliest pieces of music ever to grace the internet. I just wanted to share the beauty. The delicate splendour of the lilting harmonies. The soft sussuration of the Gaelic lyrics, and the delightful penny-whistle solo.

The Gaelic Song
The Arrogant Worms

Through the ages, through war, pestilence and sleet, the Celtic culture has survived, its songs and dances passed from father to son, from mother to daughter, from uncle to goat. And though few still speak Gaelic, the ancient language of the Celts, all hearts are still stirred by the beautiful tones of this mellifluous tongue.

So, I've had this horrible, horrible song in my head for about 48 hours: Denis Leary's "I'm An Asshole." In a desperate bid to get rid of it, I went searching for catchier tunes. Found one that's catchier, but no better. At all. The Vagina Song.

So Chris was at this review course with residents from programs all over the country, and at one point he and our friend Susan (good friend of ours, also psych resident) met some new folks.

Susan: This is Chris, he's the godfather of my kids.
Chris: And Susan's the godmother of my kids. ::pause:: Which I guess makes her my... godwife.

Um... I could write about my day, I guess.

Got up, Chris went to work, boys stayed home, chatted with [livejournal.com profile] ninja_kat (who's still pregnant), biked to Guy's house to bring him lunch stopped at the library for French books on the way there and at Malabar's for ballet shoes on the way back and at the park where we got a nasty shock because the trees ringing it have been torn down and replaced by bulldozers and after the shock I read my articles while Daniel did some math & English and Justin ate and then they played and chatted with [livejournal.com profile] ninja_kat (whose younger sister is no longer still pregnant - baby boy born today!) and then we left our bikes locked up together because Daniel's wheel was loose and my chain had come off (again - gotta get a new bike) so we walked to Fabricland and got the Halloween costume fabrics and off to the grocery store and lugged our food home then stopped at home for 30 min so the kids could play on the computer and then it was off to school for Meet The Creature Night and then to Beavers to drop off Justin then back home to do more of my readings, get Daniel to finish his Social Studies work and make dinner and then off to choir while Chris took Daniel to pick up Justin and came home after they were all asleep.

Or I could write about how, on Monday, I had the kids all day and then kept them with me for most of the evening after Chris had come home from work, and made dinner while he studied, because I was going to attend the HBLN parents' get-together at 7PM.

And then I could write about how, on Tuesday, I had the kids all day and then kept them with me for most of the evening after Chris had come home from work, and made dinner while he studied, because I was going to visit with a couple of other home schooling moms around 8PM.

Or reiterate that today, I had the kids all day and then kept them with me for most of the evening after Chris had come home from work, and made dinner while he studied, because I was going to attend choir at 7:30.

But I'd much rather share a totally gorgeous song we're learning in choir, about the Maritimes. It's actually two separate songs, one sandwiched into the other, both beautiful. The bread part of the song is very simple and sweet, the filling is a multi-part rolling thing that really makes you think of the ocean. Which is convenient, seeing as how it's about the Maritimes. A little sad, in that it mourns a way of life that's disappearing, but somehow it's uplifting too.

Great fun to sing, too :)

All Too Soon, Traditional Celtic Tunes, Stephen Hatfield

No one's in doubt that the children singing
All too soon shall be women and men
And the bonny new land
That we shaped with our hand
It'll roll to the ocean again.
