april 2005 - april 2008

do they know it's pancake day?

Today California and the US is celebrating the quadrennial feast of Super Tuesday. It follows Superbowl Sunday (described by a daytime TV presenter last week as the ‘second-most important eating day in the US after Thanksgiving’ – Christmas must be a miserly affair in that house). I don’t know whether you are supposed to say ‘Happy Super Tuesday’ or ‘Merry Super Tuesday’, or whether it’s politically correct to say either: should I just say ‘Happy Second Weekday’, or ‘Super Pagan-War-God Feast’? Are we supposed to give cards? Either way, Monday was actually described on KCRA3 as ‘Super Tuesday Eve’. Never mind Shrove Tuesday. I suppose tomorrow, being Ash Wednesday, will be appropriately if not wittily rechristened ‘Fall-out Wednesday’. Or perhaps it will be the opposite, ‘Make-up Wednesday’, because that’s what these candidates all seem to do once they stop running against each other for office.

Commitment 2008’, that is how the current wave of primaries and caucuses is being sold on the news channels. I don’t know what exactly that means but it sounds serious and brow-furrowing. It’s Democuhcy an’ we mean it, man. In the Democrat corner it’s officially the first black (African-American) candidate against the first woman (Female-American) candidate, and though the media makes a lot of this, I’m glad that most ordinary people I overhear do not (rather, one good candidate against a better candidate, you decide which).  For the Republicans it’s Old-White-American against Mormon-White-American, oh and that other guy Huckabee, who is a tabloid headline waiting to be overused. Ah, good luck to them all. None of them are called Bush, which is a massive bonus.


 And so the boys and girls of 24 states are out today voting, talking, arguing, getting involved. In so many ways, this sort of election is so much more exciting than the Presidential Race itself, which is a bit like a world cup final, tired and depleted, ending in tears or penalties, although without Zidane to headbutt the cocky guy.  It’s like the FA Cup round three: there are more candidates, always a chance a minnow could kill a giant, the debates are more varied, they actually address issues before sniping (oh who am I kidding), and…actually now I think about it, it’s none of those things. What am I going on about, it’s Pancake Day. Give me some eggs and flour, some Jif lemon (or is it Cif now, I forget), some sugar and a nice hot pan. I can’t vote here anyway, I’m not a citizen.
Last night, the newsreader did offer a number to call if anyone has election problems. I was going to call and ask if I should call my doctor if I’ve had an election lasting more than four hours.

Were the candidates shriven, d'you think? Do they know what that means?
Thanks for some Californian fresh air.

Breitling Bentley
retail in prices ranging. Why pay $12,000 for a watch that you could buy for $320 especially when the replica is made with the same materials and to the same standards as the original Breitling Aeromarine
? By purchasing a Bentley 6.75
 from watchcopiez, your Navitimer Watches
will be shipped.

Vacheron Constantin will not disappoint you. Each watch must pass tests for ten different criteria before it is sold. From the waterproofing techniques pioneered by Vacheron Constantin Watches , to the use of only the finest metals and stones, as well as unrelenting testing by an independent Replica Vacheron Constantin Watches organization, each chronograph carries with it the legacy that Replica Vacheron Constantin has built for the last century.

These high tuition fees are going to catalyse 'brain drain' for our nation. The taxpayer will have shelled out god knows how much educating these people through primary, secondary and sixth form and then the result of that cost may end up hot-footing it off to distant lands. essay
