My Little Brother Posted

Brad's Space This is my baby brother's msn space. Here he writes about the family Hawaii trip.
For some reason I think that everything he does is so cute and I can never get that mad at him. Maybe it's because he's smart enough to not argue with me and usually does what I say. However he phone me tonight to say that I'm making dinner for him, the family and his friends from Trinity to watch the Prime Ministers inauguration on Tuesday night??????, oh and I've been told to make this big Greek Pasta dish called "Euvisty" (not correctly spelt) in Greek or Stewed Lamb with Tomatoes Orzo and Rice. Actually I bought a big bag of pasta Orzo awhile back and I would love a chance to make the whole thing, this should be fun I hope my Greek dish turns out okay.
p.s I was looking at this recipe more closely and it's missing cinnamon and fennel which I think will make it taste more authentic.

As grandpa would say, " STUPID WOMEN"

Its not the prime ministers ingauration! Like i give a shit about stupid canadian politics anyways...

Its President Bush's State of the Union address to the congress, US senate, and joint chiefs!!!!

ITs basically a big american prep rally where the president talks about all the good things he has done, and is going to do in the coming year. It's really fun and cool to watch.

Bradley don't swear on my blog!!!!!!!!!!! I just told everyone you were cute.

Quentin said...

Brad's in that "I'm too cool for everyone" stage of life. Also into binge drinking lately...

Not so cute anymore!

Melanie Catherine said...

This is making me laugh Lisa! I have a "baby brother" myself (he's almost twenty) and he seems to think he's too cool for everyone too! Hahaha!

Lisa's Diet said...

Yes and the comment "Stupid women" is actually "stupid woman" and it was reserved only for my grandmother when she would become extremely irrational and yelled at him and he would say that as he left the house to get away. He was such a sweetheart and treated eveyone especially women so well. Ahh this is making me miss him. Bradley if your reading this I think I'm going to make you do some chores on Tuesday your attitude needs some adjusting!!!!

Lisa's Diet said...

p.s Bradley I was telling Mom that you should go into politics, you should start volunteering with Boomer.
And don't forget sweetheart that you are Canadadian.

Green Squiggly said...

i don't know where to start on this one... I think Brad must be a joint chief if he thinks the SoTU address is cool. I guess it explains it if he is Canadadian. He should go back there.

Here is some infor about the state of the union....

QUESTION: So whose idea is it to have the president give the speech?

ANSWER: The writers of the Constitution mandated the report, saying that "from time to time," the president needed to let Congress know how the country was doing. (Article II, Section 3.)

But until Woodrow Wilson in 1913, presidents generally delivered the information in writing or had surrogates deliver it orally. Wilson wanted to infuse life and theatrics into a presidency he felt had become too impersonal.

Now, the State of the Union speech has become an important part of a modern president's "stagecraft," according to historian Douglas Brinkley.

Q: Why has the speech become such a major address?

A: Says Brinkley: "It gives presidents the opportunity to kind of summarize for the people what it is they are doing. It is a pep rally. A lot of theatrics of the evening are watching who stands up and who sits down and who applauds the loudest. ...

"And you bring in kind of public-service superstars, people who did some amazing feat over the past year, and you have them sit by the first lady.

"It is stage-crafted now, but the words become some of the ones that will be carved on the granite walls of the Bush library someday."

Q: What obstacles face President George W. Bush in this State of the Union speech?

A: Says Brinkley: "President Bush had a very hard 2005, with his failed efforts on Social Security and the problems he had with Katrina, the continuing beleaguered nature of the war in Iraq.

"But he turned a corner on Dec. 15, I believe, in Iraq with the elections there. And he seems to have kind of picked up an offensive spirit again. ... He wants to show people that he is not listless, but that he is more than on the job."

Q: Who gets to go?

A: Current and former members of Congress, the president's cabinet, the joint chiefs and the Supreme Court justices.

Q: And one cabinet member stays home, too, right?

A: Right. Just in case. The provision assures continuity in government in case a horrendous event disables or kills top government leaders, disrupting the constitutional line of succession.

Congress decided in 2003 to make two members of each chamber, one from each party, stay home, too -- just in case.

hey quentin you fag, i hope you can make it, don't crash your bmw again on your way home. Don't try to tell me I what I don't and do enjoy. I have been reading american news everyday since I could read, I went to the presedential ingauration last year and I find american politics very interesting. Gets your facts straight before you decide to pretend you know it all about everything.

Lisa's Diet said...

Ummm excuse me, this kind of talk is not acceptable on my blog please take your nasty comments else were!!!! And would you both just be nice to each other gezz what's the big deal.....

Quentin said...

HAHA that's so funny that you're telling ME not to crash a car... hahahahahahahahahah - You gotta be able to come up with something better than that!

I'm sorry I doubted your americanism - you should get an honorary dual-citizenship!!

Anonymous said...

THE ONLY REASON NO ONE THINKS YOU CRASH YOUR CAR IS CAUSE YOU TAKE IT INTO THE REPAIR SHOP RIGHT AWAY AND FIX IT BEFORE ANYONE CAN NOTICE. and my accidents are because I'm not looking behind me when I back up, yours are because you spin out. Spinning out=lack of driving ability.

PS. You should be giving an Honorary Doctorate sine your intelligence is obviously far greater than anyone else on this world

Quentin said...

I pull the e-brake once on a slippery bridge - you totalled your 1st car then smashed up your mom's car & your brothers in one shot.

I had one accident in 10 years and you've killed 3 cars driving for 2 years. You do the math.

Quentin:
1/10 = .09 crashes a year

Brad:
3/2 = 1.5 crashes a year

I guess I'll need an hounorary degree in math while you're at it...

How Quentin thinks:

Step 1: Say Some bull shit

Step 2: Blatantly Lie and make shit up to defend myself.

Step 3: Add some bogus statistic to make argument just.

Step 4: Add a smart ass comment to make myself feel superior.

Quentin said...

Step 1: Say Some bull shit

- I DID pull my ebrake on a bridge and Brad DID wreck 3 cars in 2 years.

Step 2: Blatantly Lie and make shit up to defend myself.

- See response to Step 1.

Step 3: Add some bogus statistic to make argument just.

- I'm pretty sure the math holds up. We could get a second opinion if you want...

Step 4: Add a smart ass comment to make myself feel superior.

- That's the only statement that holds true.


(here comes my step 4, you ready?)


Step 1 & 2 are the same thing dumbass...

Quentin said...

Oh crap - I forgot... Brad's right. I did spin out one time when it was snowing out, going 20km/hr on Hwy #91, while driving on bald rear tires. My apologies.

Revised math:

Quentin:
2/10 = 0.2 crashes a year

Brad:
3/2 = 1.5 crashes a year

P.S.S. I hate you to Green Squiggly whoever you are...you sound like one of those people who vote NDP.

Green Squiggly said...

to Brad W. Bush:

I didn't vote NDP cause i think unions are run by the devil. I bet you voted Green cause that's what all the kids do these days. Have you been watching those scripted "town hall meetings" that Bush has been doing lately? those are pretty hilarious. you should check it out.

Typical Question "Dear Mr. President, first I just want to say thank you for defending America. My question is 'do you ever get tired of fighting evil?'"

Makes me proud to be a Canadian.

Green Squiggly said...

I was referring to Lisa's comment where she says "And don't forget sweetheart that you are Canadadian."

Lisa's Diet said...

This is like a boxing ring, who's next!

bye bye, kids. (i say that cuz i'm old, not cuz i'm accusing you of being kids. tee hee)

I'm more Pro America than Pro Bush. I can't stand people who bash the Americans. They may not have the best leader right now, but they are the only reason Canadians can enjoy the standard of living we do. If it weren't for them we would be like Africans. Whether we like it or not, we are the 53rd state, and whatever they do affects our lives and wellbeing almost as much as our own governments decisions. For instance, did you know the 4th largest city in terms of Canadian citizens living in it is not Calgary, or Ottawa... it's Los Angeles. It's funny how us westerners (west Canada) think of Quebec as a bunch of tax sucking, spoiled, better off without them people. In reality, we are the Quebec of North America, we have our own values, culture and system of doing things, but without our neighbors our economy would be "Fucked." We should happy that cosmetically we are allowed to be a separate state, yet still enduring all the benefits of our neighbors to the south. My advice to those who hate Americans is to move to a country whose economy is not significantly influenced and funded by the United States and see how happy your life is.

Lisa's Diet said...

That was very interesting comment, but don't be so mad it's not worth getting upset about.

Quentin said...

I do agree that it helps our standard of living by being neighbors to US. For the rest of your advice - I call BS!

"For the second year running, Norway has been named as the best place in the world to live, according to an annual report from the United Nations. Norway was followed by Sweden, Canada, Belgium, Australia and the US - but the bottom of the chart is dominated by African countries."

Ok, so I can move to Norway or Sweden and enjoy a better standard of living than in North America... Kinda makes your advice look ignorant.
