The Mind of Rick is the blog of one of my close friends. I think of him as a big brother to me. His name is Rick Smith, and he’s a member of the New Democrat Party here in Canada. Check out his blog, he’s got awesome opinions and is a good writer. I deeply, deeply love him and have promised to advertise. <33

In other news, um… I went to see The Last Mimzy today. It was incredible. There was this one amazing climactic moment, and I swear to god I did not breathe. I was just sitting on the edge of my seat, gaping. Totally amazing. But, I shall give no spoilers, for I am not that bad. Rainn Wilson (from the American version of The Office) was in it, and he was SO good. Very, very funny guy. I am going to see it again I believe next weekend or thereabouts.

 Also, today I went to McDonalds for the first time in about two years. Only because the toys in the Happy Meals are Wizard of Oz figurines, and if you know me at all you know that my favourite musical is Wicked, based on the Wizard of Oz. I got an Elphaba (Wicked Witch of the West) figurine, and a Cowardly Lion as well. I’m so pleased that they made Elphaba pretty; you know, not with a hook nose and a pointed chin… she’s actually really beautiful. Which is good. Elphaba is supposed to be a smouldering beauty, and that is how they portrayed her. Downside to McDonalds food: right after I ate it, I got the biggest stomachache I’ve had in ages. Seriously, I was doubled over, moaning in agony. I got over it, of course, but still. Pain.

That’s about all I have to say right now. Remember now, the website is http://mind-of-rick.blogspot.com/. I urge you all to check it out, Rick is an awesome writer. If he can’t convert you to the NDP side, nothing can. He dominates your face. <33 Love you all, goodnight!

Well, this is an interesting development. I seem to have acquired a blog of my very own. Now, for the most part, my blogs have been solely on LiveJournal and MySpace, so this should be an extremely new, if not downright bizarre, experience. I was told that this is infinitely better than the aforementioned blogs, so I’ll give it a shot.

By the way, I don’t usually write like this, but under the circumstances I feel it is appropriate. Something about this website demands propriety and dignity, and none of the usual “OMGWTFLOLZORZ” claptrap one usually sees on the Internet. Probably the font I’m using. Good heavens, it feels stiff and English.

Well, I shall end this rather laborious task of writing, as truly anything more I write will be merely cliches and other such nonsense. Adieu.
