teenage me, originally uploaded by happy d.

thanks to lori, my first ever meme, draw yourself as a teenager!

age 14: going through a lot of friendship drama. i remember everyone was so quick to be BFFs, but i felt i never connected with anyone in particular. nobody shared my hobbies!

age 17: this was the year i met a great group of kindred spirits. i'm still in contact with these gals and have way too much fun with them when i'm back i vancouver. i think the whole group of us look back at these years with a lot of fondness. high school was so much fun and we weren't even cheerleaders.

happy first day of spring! [Mar. 20th, 2008|11:43 pm]
edmonton field 2003

with all this bad and sad news that has been dominating the media (the US recession's impact on the canadian economy, gold/oil/stock prices tumbling, 5 year anniversary of the iraqi invasion, our PM wanting to sue the opposition party - that's our tax money!), i was so happy to read that percy schmeiser was able to settle his law suit with evil GMO producing monsanto (although surprisingly this victory was not reported on the cbc today).

for the past 8 years, percy schmeiser has been fighting monsanto's patent infringement accusations, where monsanto accused schmeiser of stealing their genetically modified roundup ready canola seeds by not paying the company for the special seeds nor paying them the annual licensing fee required to harvest canola with this special gene.

the fact that a company patented a life form is scary enough, but what's scarier is that monsanto has agents that go and test farms to ensure that their GMO is not being used by unlicensed farmers. a total cash grab, when cross pollination of crops happen naturally. wind, bees, birds and other creatures don't care about human created boundaries.

shockingly, schmeiser lost the first court case where the supreme court ruled in monsanto's favour. so, schmeiser fought back, appealed and sued monsanto for contaminating his crops - his canola seeds have been carefully developed by his family for the past 50 years. go percy!

i cheated a bit on the topic this week ... i just don't have a favourite blues singer that i wanted to draw.

in other news, i'm shocked that the world wide banana crisis (this is a term i'm giving it) isn't garnering more attention in the media.

everybody eats bananas! ... but perhaps since no western nation's economy will be that drastically affected, that no one cares? no one cares about the banana farmers??

i was flabbergasted when i read about this in a back issue article in shameless magazine that i picked up at word on the street this past weekend.

instead people want to know what britney is doing now that she doesn't have her kids....

my 'read' shelf:

i was introduced to this community book site several months ago but none of my friends seem to want to join :( i think it's a great site to share opinions on books read, but so far i only have one friend.

the site also features an 'available for swap/trade' entry for each book that you read - which i thought was smart.

sure it's not as addictive as facebook, but it's not as smutty either :)

come join me? and if you see a book you like, i'd be happy to snail mail it your way :)
