Please Take Momentous Back!



This is my 300th blog post. July 2005 was when I first put finger tips on keyboards and started this great adventure. I thank everyone for commenting, for emailing privately, for engaging with such enthusiasm, inspiring me over and over again to write and to vent, to whine and to laugh.

And speaking of all of the above:

Guess what I read in the Montreal Gazette today:

George W. Bush to speak in Calgary

Canwest News ServiceFebruary 13, 2009

Former United States president George W. Bush is coming to Calgary for his first confirmed speaking event since leaving office last month. The private event, billed as "A Conversation with George W. Bush," is to be held March 17 at the Telus Convention Centre. Bush is to share his "thoughts on his eight momentous years in the Oval Office," according to the event material. About 1,500 people are expected to attend.

Now listen up, Americans. We really are well over our quota in village idiots running around in our own government up here. We don't need yours.

  2. Congrats on the....what is it tercentenary..or something similar, WWW!

    Can you arrange for GWB to be taken on a long trek through the frozen northern wastes, not to be seen again "for quite some time". ;-)

    Yes, you're always Good WWW.
    Do I hear you whisper as Mae West did, "but when I'm bad I'm better?"

  3. Perhaps it means momentous in the sense that there was only the odd moment that he said anything sensible.

  4. Actually, that is just the kind of scrapbook he would keep in real life. And so very funny too.

    Now I am left wondering just how long it will take Obama to remove all those pesky American football stickers from GWB's old wardrobe lol.

    I take it you aren't planning to attend the event?

  5. Hmmmmmm......1.4 postings a week .Thats pretty good. Excluding Trawna I've always thought that Alberta was our most amercanized place. Fitting then that Dubya should visit there. Of course there is not too many places he can go to

    I wouldn't miss it for the world. He's been working on actually completing a sentence and on basic grammar. So that will be momentous in itself.

    It's always where the Bush Empire are invested in the oil sands and I think this is ground zero testing to see if enough people are interested in this cretin making a world tour of such 'speechifying'.
    What did PT Barnum say? ;^)

  11. Well Dubya always did speak to crowds who had been chosen and vetted beforehand, so he should be right at home in Calgary, the nearest we have to a Bible Belt. But I really do have to wonder who would be daft enough to pay to listen to the man?

  12. Perhaps he can't find an audience at home?

    Oh, what am I saying? Americans aren't that sophisticated. The money must be better. What is the Canadian-American dollar exchange rate these days?

    Yes, you're right, I'd forgotten about the faux cowboy culture out there, he'll be right at home!!

    Close to par I think, though the man doesn't need any money with the kickbacks from Unka Dick. I do believe he'll get some validation from our cowboys out west, who are slick with oil.

  15. Well he could hardly string two words together in the White House. What makes the good people of Calgary think they are going to get their moneysworth?

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
