Robin Snooky Muddy Grumpy Sparky Heavy Metal Happy And here’s our video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9kfv8iMAfCU…

The Fool’s Gold Covid Briefing Bingo

Welcome back, Possums. We here at ye olde raincoaster blog are still unclear whether CP Style capitalizes Possums or not, but we’re feeling our collective oats today (and also our coffee, which is beans and thus protein, right? RIGHT?) so we will allow it. Our briefing bingo today is named after…

Good rainy morning, Possums. We are coming to you live from Ottawa, although today CPAC is apparently not covering Trudeau’s briefing so we are going with the CBC video instead, as the actual PMO team doesn’t get the video up for eight or ten hours and never includes other people’s speeches…

Good afternoon, Possums, and welcome back to another episode of the Justin Trudeau Power Hour Although This Time A Scant Eleven Minutes and Forty-Nine Seconds.

Because we didn’t have time to set up an elaborate framing device. If we had, we’d have used this one. https://twitter.com/owlerine/status/1357738633739051008 #Metaphor Or this: https://twitter.com/David_Moscrop/status/1357733515132100609 #SameMetaphorReally I’m beginning to think that, as 2020 was like being in the boat in Life of Pi, 2021 is just liminal space. https://twitter.com/JohnBirchall/status/1357385222363439104 Our video,…

Groundhog Covid Briefing Bingo

Originally posted on raincoaster:
It’s Groundhog Day, sure, but not exactly, because there was no Federal Covid-19 Briefing on February 2 of last year. Remember BC, Before Covid, when we believed that every year would be better than the last? Naw, who am I kidding? I’m GenX; we haven’t believed that since we were in…
