Today is the 180th anniversary of the incorporation of my city <3<3.

March is Bisexual Health Awareness Month.

And from [personal profile] james_davis_nicoll, the CRTC has notified two pornography channels that they don't have sufficient Canadian Content, and may have their licenses revoked.

And in other news, I know that it's perfectly normal Canadian weather for March and other people have it much worse, but THIS IS ENOUGH SNOW STOP IT.

First of all, mission accomplished today.

Second of all, Jennifer Jones, you guys, Jennifer Jones. This time last week I didn't even know the rules of curling, and I learned them in time to watch her throw 100%. Jennifer Jones, OMG. (Everyone in Canada who actually follows curling knew this ten years ago. (Warning: lots of justified screaming in that video.))

I have belatedly found the theme song for Arte Regendus, or at least the second half: White Blank Page by Mumford and Sons. Oh lead me to the truth and I/ will follow you for my whole life

According to [personal profile] knumpify the remake of Robocop has a shot of the street where I grew up. Dammit, now I may have to watch that movie. (Secret: all movies are actually set in Toronto. Even if it's supposed to be New York)

I already squeeed about women's ski jumping on [community profile] capslock_dreamwidth; what I didn't know then is that the silver medalist, Daniela Iraschko-Stolz, is an out lesbian (one of seven at the games this year). Also, I have a video of Carina Vogt's win now.

Practicing my links in this post, apparently.

You know, I never thought of myself as a jock. But winter sports, oh I love them so much. And rock climbing. But mostly skiing and women's hockey and figure skating and apparently curling now.

ETA: From [personal profile] staranise: Ellen Page is gay OMG!

violsva: Merida from Brave, with the text "Solve all your problems by turning your mother into a bear" (Merida bear)
I have not actually been reading DW or LJ for about a month or two now, because I have a full time job with a three hour total commute and then suddenly I got a social life as well. I can write on the subway, but by the time I get home I mostly just fall over.

So I am moving closer to work next week! Which is great, and I will have my own apartment, without even roommates, and it will be wonderful.

Except that I spend my weekdays packing boxes and dealing with logistics. And now on my weekends I need to pack boxes and deal with logistics. gaaahhh

Basically, I feel like I will be very happy and enjoying myself in a month, but right now not so much. But I really want to be living not-here, and it should fix most of my major difficulties.

And then I might have time to think about things other than how exhausted I am!

Well, it's as done as it will ever be. Now maybe A Study in Scarlet will give me a plot.

Word Count: 4392
Summary: A major figure in the music industry wants the assistance of a consulting detective. A consulting detective’s assistant wants a distraction. The Canada Council for the Arts wants accountability. Two of them will be disappointed, but honestly, Jane Wang can’t say she minds.

At AO3.

In this universe.

Rejected first line: To Xu-lai Ho she is always the liberal arts major.

First of all, this clown is but hopefully will soon no longer be my city councillor. Let there be much rejoicing. Rob Ford's audit later this month!

Secondly, I desperately need to live somewhere that isn't an hour and a half from my job. Insert random profanity into the preceding sentence as you prefer. Work would be better if Canada Post was a finely tuned perfectly oiled machine.

Thirdly, on the other hand I got more then 300 words on the way to work this morning. So things could be worse. But now I have to type it up.

I am currently working three jobs, which oddly is good for my (non-blog) writing although it means I haven't been rock climbing or to pottery in a month. Not so good for the anxiety, though that may be a hormone issue. Ugh.

Yet I make time for music festivals. A good show makes me so damn happy. It's great. A really good show, I just stand there grinning.

Like, say, Amos the Transparent. I'd never heard of them until Wednesday night. They're great live. It was awesome. So much fun. And they were having fun too.

Gus and Scout were also neat though not quite my thing. All quiet and soft and heart-wrenching.

Someone else came on after Amos the Transparent, but it was late and they weren't very good.

The Black Belles would have been really good if the club hadn't been packed. Very pretty, I think. Good music, judging by what I heard over conversations. Oh, well, that's what YouTube is for.

Die Mannequin do really really great live shows. That's how you do it. Still too shouty, though.

Apparently Toronto audiences are notorious for not dancing. Come on, local music scene, you can do better than that! (I'm horribly self conscious if I want to dance and the only other people dancing are a few people at the front.)

... Also, there's a Francophone Festival at the Harbourfront starting tomorrow.
