On Friday morning I’m off to Ottawa for the long weekend for the first time since I moved back to B.C. nearly six years ago. As a Cartoon U alum I’m looking forward to revisiting some of my old stomping grounds (I’m going to stay in res for nostalgia’s (and price’s) sake, though they better not stick me in Glengarry) and of course another sure to be fun Progressive Bloggers BBQ on Saturday. Anyway, speaking of subversion, things progressive and bloggers, here’s a group shot from last weekend’s Toronto-area Progressive Bloggers BBQ, ably hosted by the redoubtable Vijay Sappani:
Speaking of bloggers, some bloggers/readers will be gathering for drinks in Ottawa on Friday night, if you’d like to join us for some beers, political discussion and subversion send me an e-mail and I’ll send you the details. It’d be great to see you there.
I also plan to have a shawarma tomorrow. And any Ottawan worth their salt will tell you that the best shawarma in town is from Maroush International Shawarma. Or at least it was six years ago.
Amazing what you can find on Youtube these days:
What a dangerous looking group, no? I bet Harper is shaking in his non-designer, working man loafers. I wonder how many of these bloggers have been blocked from viewing now on government computers?
Frankly, I’m kinda bummed they haven’t banned me. Haven’t I been subversive enough Steve? Wasn’t the whole Deceivin’ Steven thing kind of annoying, or constantly pointing out the laughable difference between your rhetoric and your action? What is it Galloping Beaver, Calgary Grit, BigCityLib and Bread and Roses have that I don't Prime Minister?
I must redouble my efforts! Tomorrow, the progressive bloggers take the subversion from our basements and into Ottawa, the belly of the beast.
Steve, here we come!
UPDATE: Thanks to April Reign for the sweet badge at right. Get yours today!
