Politics and AnimeNorth

I voted for the first time yesterday; last provincial election was a month before my birthday, and I forgot to vote for my town's mayor.  Oops.  Oh well, the guy I thought should get mayor got it anyways, so it's all good.

Here are the (unofficial) results from the election, courtesy of CanadaOnline:

Party                            Standings          Current Party Leader
Bloc Québécois                51                     Gilles Duceppe
Conservative Party           124                    Stephen Harper
Liberal Party                    103                    Paul Martin
NDP                                29                     Jack Layton
Independent                     1                       N/A

So we have a Conservative minority government.  I'm not sure if that's good or bad, but we'll find out.  Personally, I think Stephen Harper is kind of scary looking, but that's just me.  I never did find out what the Conservative' stand of same-sex marriages was, but it's probably a negative/anti one.  They are the Tories, after all.


In other news, I am now registered for AnimeNorth.  My hotel room is booked, and as soon as I pay off enough of my credit card to be able to pay for my flight (which will be done tomorrow), that will be booked, too.  SQUEE!!  I really didn't put that much on my credit card, actually; my total limit is only $400.00, and I registered for an $80.00 course (Standard First Aid and CPR Level "C") so that brings it down to low to pay for my flight, which is $353.39 in total.  (Round-trip! After taxes, fees, and surcharges!)

I am insanely excited for this!  I'm cosplaying Hinata (pre-timejump), because she's just that cute.  I need to get together with Jan and do another fitting for my outfit, and get her to give me good sites for wigs.  She must have one.  She already linked me to a good site where I can get (fairly cheap) white contacts, so I imagine she has a site for wigs, too.  YAY!

Wow, I should be going to bed right about now, but I'm far too hyper to sleep.  Hm.  Maybe I'll just jump on my bed for a while till the hyperactivity goes away.

Or until I hit my head and knock myself out.  Whichever comes first.
