I haven't been very active around LiveJournal lately. Wow, it's been ages since I posted ANYTHING. I'm so much more busy now that my boyfriend lives with me. But it's good busy.

So I just thought I'll let you guys know that I'm still alive. :)

Random news and updates

I'm back from a long holiday and catching up on fics. Yay!

My sister successfully completed her military training and is now a member of the Air Force.

I still intend to finish those half-done fanarts eventually, I swear! I just don't know when I'll find the time.

Never again am I accepting a freelance graphic design project from my parent's friends. NEVER AGAIN. Friends make the worst customers.

It's about time I post an update here. I have a bunch of half-finished fanarts on the way but no time to work on these. :( And with the tragic death of my pair of pet doves, I'm not in the mood anyway.
Hopefully summer will grant me more free time to work on art. :)

And my journal badly need a new layout.

Angry angry Canadian political rant

I know that I already mentioned my visceral hate of rabid separatists* in a previous journal entry but I saw something on TV during lunch break that only consolidate said hate.

There's a (ridiculous) debate about whether or not there should be a reconstitution of the battle of the Plains of Abraham, in the historical district of Quebec City. The problem is not financial as I first expected. No! Some people from the separatism movement claim that it would a horrible to commemorate a battle where the French lost Quebec to the English invaders. It's an historical event of massive importance in the history of not only Quebec but the whole of north America but noooooooo! We should do as if it never happened, erase it from history, because it hurts the feeling of some idiot separatists that completely lost contact with reality.
This is looking more and more like Castro's regime.

But what really takes the cake is the tv show itself. The interviewer was clearly and openly a separatist himself and what should have been an impartial interview turned into separatist propaganda. It was like listening to delusional psychiatric patients. They went as far as compare this battle to the invasion of European countries by the nazi. They lost what remained of their credibility at that point.

For this kind of people, being a separatist and fixating on events that happened in the 1700's and 1800's is the only way to be proud of your French Canadian ancestry. I'm a French Canadian, Quebecer and I'm extremely proud of my ancestry but that doesn't stop me from being a federalist. :-|

* Please note the use of "rabid" here. I'm a very respectful person and I'm sure there is decent people out there who happened to be separatists. I would gladly discuss politic in a friendly and respectful way with them if only I could find one who actually have real arguments to back his position in a civic manner.

RIP iBook G3

Woot! Back from the holidays! Sorry for the lack of activity. My laptop's motherboard gave it's last bleep while I was on Holidays, visiting my parents. It's been coming for ages. Poor old laptop. Thankfully I have a shiny, recent iMac at home so I'm not stuck internetless. Yay?

Sadly I lost all my Holiday fanart doodles. :( And the possibility to read fanfics in bed. D: Now I've got a good reason to buy a new laptop!

Also, I gave myself a Christmas present: high speed internet! Bye bye evil dial-up!
