One pill makes you larger….

Here’s a great article about sex worth reading. It sort of describes the White Rabbit‘s fall * into a third hole…

Speaking of drugs: I had my flu shot last week.

I usually think of Victoria as an end-point on a rock in the ocean: we’re on an island, and this is not exactly the easiest place to leave because you can only go so far by car before hitting the water. And once you do, you must pay handsomely to cross that water. But it seems that quite a few people are lured to coming here these days, as per the strange stories on radio: both KPLU and CBC report that the Victoria Clipper is experiencing a huge increase in traffic from Seattle to Victoria. Why? Well, the ferry service is offering a package deal: for US $105 you get a round-trip cruise from Seattle to Victoria, and a flu shot in the Belleville Terminal (once you’ve cleared Canada Customs and Immigration). It seems that people from as far away as Arizona are flying to Seattle to take advantage of the deal. Normal traffic on the Clipper at this time of year: about 100 passengers. Normal today? Well over three hundred.

I also sent in my absentee ballot this week. It felt like a flu shot: you know you should do it (vote, I mean), but you wonder how effective it will be (there always seems to be some way the bastards — viral bad guys — get in anyway). My ballot goes to Massachusetts, where Kerry presumably will win regardless of whether my vote gets added to his pile. Too bad I couldn’t pay $105 to vote in Washington State….

From The Los Angeles Times: “Nationwide, at least two polls in the last week showed that newly registered voters favored Democratic presidential candidate John F. Kerry by double-digit margins. The Massachusetts senator holds an even greater lead, the polls found, among voters 29 and younger… The conclusion is that the new voters and younger voters favor Kerry by a large margin, but historically they don’t actually bother to vote. If they do this time, it could make a big difference.

Come on people––your vote is essential!

THERE’S STILL TIME TO REQUEST YOUR ABSENTEE BALLOT in many states if you are registered to vote!
It’s easy; it’s online.

That’s not the only reason to visit Vancouver Island these days, Yule!

Over in Tofino there is currently an art exhibition by native Indian artist Roy Henry Vickers. Why don’t you take a look and blog what YOU think of it

Wow, this is the first political comment spam I’ve ever had. Look at all the exclamation marks!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Alright, alright, already, I voted!!!!!!!!!!! Sheesh.)

Stu, I checked out Vickers’s work online (and he has a gallery in Sidney, which is much closer to downtown Victoria than Tofino — the latter is more than a day trip, especially at this time of year when the West Coast of the island starts to get socked in), but I have to admit that his work doesn’t interest me much. Perhaps I’d have to have a greater interest in the symbolism (iconography) of the work, but I don’t. Formally, it appeals on a decorative level if you like that sort of thing, but I personally am aiming for Louis XIV – Sun King d
