There is so much going on and I wish I had a chance to blog. I don’t even have time to scratch my ass these days as I count down to the Big Drop! Yeah, only 15 more days at work and 22 days to the big day. So, I’m literally rolling around, can bearly walk much less stand for more than 15 minutes on a good day.
But, just to let you know I’m still around.
I’m sure you are all aware that Jamaica is in the peak of its election season and as such, the drama has begun. The drama actually begun long before but now that The Prime Minister has finally ended the suspense and announced the nomination and election dates, the country is now in a frenzy. The controversy surrounds the length of time between the nomination (August 7) and election day (August 27). Political Analysts were predicting an election date of July 31 and most were disappointed that we would have to wait so long. The opposition party was also quite pissed off about this saying that the Jamaica people were shafted. I don’t entirely agree with that statement, but do believe that it is not in the best interest of the country to have such a protracted period of time which could allow for more violence to perpetrate our island home. The defacing of billboards, the stoning of campaign supporters, is now a daily feature on the news casts. My was hoping to cast my vote before my bundle of joy arrives but nothing will stop me from going to the polling station on August 27 to exercise my democratic right.
On another note, Digicel’s Rising Stars 2007 has gotten into high gear and I am thoroughly enjoying it. Apart from the fact that I’m still without cable (yes people, I’m living with local TV), I have been thoroughly enjoying local programming and a few of my cable favourites as well. This year’s competition looks a bit tight but I have a few favourites and a few I’m still wondering how the judges could have picked them for the preliminary 10. I’m anxious to see who Anthony’s wild card is. So, come hell or high water (unless I go in labour) will I miss rising stars this Sunday night. Neither do I want to miss Friday night’s elimination show.
That’s it from CD for now. I’ve had a chance to check a few of your blogs when I have a minute or 2 to spare cause I definitely want to stay connected. Don’t want to be forgotten or moved to the MIA section of anyone’s blogroll. So, still around, hope you’re all still reading and I miss you all so much.
Luv Ya! Muuuuuaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!
CD – the cool ruler 🙂
