Photobucket Is it just me or are there way more young women smoking these days than say 5 years ago?

I feel like almost every time I walk down the streets of downtown Toronto I see at least one 20 or 30 something female walking around with a cigarette held in the typical index and middle finger pose or blowing out a fine mist of smoke while looking all nonchalant about it.

Is there actually an increase or am I just noticing it more these days? I mean vibrant fresh faced young women, stylish in their designer labels not the normally I've been smoking for 20+ years females that you normally see types.

Was there a push on advertising of cigarettes to women? Oh wait tobacco companies don't advertise these days. Is it just the in "cool" thing to do?

Who knows.

You know I couldnt let the Giambroni story get cold without a second post right?

Photobucket Toronto say hi to your newest hero (pictured on the side). Kristen Lucas is the 20 year old co-ed who was involved with city councilor and former mayoral candidate Adam Giambroni and who blew the whistle on Giambroni's little affairs while he purportedly had a live in partner seen with Giambroni in the photo below. You can read part of her story here.

Now some of you might say why am I calling her a hero? Why should I view her that way if all she did was unknowingly had an affair with this politician?

Photobucket Well I am calling her a hero because Toronto you better recognize that this woman single-handedly has saved your city from being ruled by a nitwit. You should be writing odes and singing her praises.

Think about it. If she doesn't come out with this story, maybe Giambroni's campaign doesn't get derailed. He apparently had an excellent campaign team and maybe just maybe they find a way for him to beat Smitherman and next fall this man is our mayor.

Why is this such a bad thing you ask? You say well he's done a decent job running the TTC. Decent could be argued I guess since the TTC has seen better days and to tell the truth service sucks right now but still he does have a bit of management experience right.

Well you are correct but then again I personally believe that the events of the past few days have proven that this man is too stupid to run this city. His handling of the whole affair thing proves this and yesterday's press conference to announce his dropping out of the mayoral race gives even more proof that he is not ready for the big time.

But Adam Giambrone’s City Hall office had armed him with only one page of a two-page speech, say two sources close to his campaign.

So with the eyes of the city upon him, he realized a page was missing. Suddenly, he said “Thank you,” spun on his heels, and charged out a door and down a staircase surrounded by a phalanx of city staff and security.

“He only had the first page, the second page was still in the printer,” in his City Hall office, said a campaign source who spoke on condition of anonymity.

What do you mean the second page was still in the printer? Who goes to give a resignation speech and gets on stage and then all of a sudden realizes they are missing a page? If the dude can mess up something that simple what do you think he would do running our city? Good lord we might wake up one day four years from now as a satellite of Mississauga by the time he was finished.

Its this simple, you wrote a two page speech (Since they claimed he crafted it himself) then make sure you have a two page speech in hand, or at least if you only have one page make sure that its double sided. Come on dude. Or keep a copy on your blackberry man, I know all you political cats have one. How do you mess up not having the entire speech.

And even if God forbid you are silly enough to lose or miss page number 2 don't just run out abruptly. What are we little children here? Man up son! You're a politician wing it fool, wing it. Go freestyle!

Now after seeing him screw up a resignation (and ya got to be a special type a eediat to mess up quitting) how can we possibly have any confidence that that man could have run this city?

That's why I (and you should too) applaud Kristen Lucas for her bold act at the expense of her self and the ridicule that she will now draw from folk even though its not her fault. She stepped up to the plate. She called Giambroni out on his lies and the fallout was that dude choked under pressure and showed his true colors. He is a fraud (not a particularly damning trait in his line of business) and he clearly doesn't have the backbone to be mayor.

People will call her names and say she is just looking for attention and fame etc and who knows maybe that's part of it, maybe she wanted to be heard to have her story told. Whatever it was I cant help but think she did the right thing. Maybe it was done in haste or in anger cause Giambrone was playing her but ultimately it worked out for the best for our city Toronto.

So big up Kristen Lucas, you are my hero and I salute you. nuh ridicule di gal give 'er a medal nuh. Thanks for saving us from Miller 2.0.

I might run 4 mayor

i might run for mayor, ***** ask your momma ima mutha**** player
Mayor - Pac Division

In one message, Giambrone tells Lucas, "I still think of you when I need ... um ... stimulation."

Toronto city councillor Adam Giambrone fled from a news conference unable to speak Wednesday morning, leaving an aide to announce the end of Giambrone’s mayoralty campaign.......
He said the scandal taught him “that a public career of integrity” cannot survive the disclosures about multiple affairs.

De man get skin up and skin out!

What a poppit! Now imagine he running for mayor, bring out he pretty lil political supposed live in partner decked out in she sensible dress and pearls loooking all like she going to the white house and meanwhile he got a young hottie .... or two on the side that he ummm sexting wid amongst other things.

And how he going to break up wid one a de young hotties by waiting til he ready to run for mayor to tell the girl that he got a partner and then saying but that dont change nuttin between we an tellin she he still thinking of she when he need stimulation. Wha any half decent woman in dem right mind aint want nuh man to tell them dat dem got anudda woman an dem just thinking a dem as a sex toy. That dem is number 2 cause even if they suspect that they are they want the illusion that they arent. Cuhdear now. Wha Giambrone could be thinking though? He really thought that the girl was gine guh long wid this plan? Wha he aint even got nuh looks nor nuh Tiger Woods money. Man he duz tek the train and streetcar to work juss like me. Ya feel the woman gine tek a number two spot from a fella like so. Chupse!

He really is a clown fa true though and a fraud and a liar cause from the text messages and stuff that have been exposed it seems like this live in partner he trotted out when he declared his candidacy was a bare cover for his political aspirations meanwhile in reality he living like he believe the line in de song "the gal pun the side juk the best" and having what he say now "multiple affairs".

And what about the accusations that he was giving the one girl insider TTC info. Not that that worth a hill a beans one way or the other but as a public official even if ya cant keep ya fly shut ya shud be able to keep ya mout shut when it comes to policy decisions coming down the pipeline. He fail big time.

And to see the tall gangly yout ya neva woulda tell that him a galyst ya know. Well well well.

Where he went wrong was in trotting out the fraudulent live in partner. If he did just run as a single fella we wouldn't be having this discussion. So he was getting frisky with multiple women. So he had sex at City hall. Whatever! We would just write it off as he's a politicians an dem fellas aint easy. But no he had to cover and lie and when ya cover and lie and ya get expose that is where all the drama duz arise.

Anyhow he din gine win the mayor race nuh how so is juss that he embarrass heself and the live in partner and he family.

Pet Peeve

Ok just a short rant. Yesterday I was at the mall and kept seeing all these adults with toddlers trailing many feet behind them. Now granted the mall wasn't that busy when I was there but whats the deal with the parent walking 4 feet ahead and the child doodling behind? It just look lawless and dangerous too. And then every once in a while the parent duz look back and tell the child hurry up or stop and wait for them to catch up. I'm sorry this pisses me off cause what if the child gets lost or somebody try to steal way the child? Yes ya wud hope that ain't going happen but this ain't the type of society you can take that risk and ya shouldn't have no young child traipsing behind you so like they is a big man or woman. Seriously what are they thinking? Shouldn't the child be by your side or in front you where you can keep an eye on them?

I dont know if this has ever happened to any of you before but its happened to me twice so thought I'd share.

Today I had to mail off a small package. Had been to the post office on Friday to pick up the nice little padded envelope they sell there and came back today with everything packed and ready to go.

So I hand de package to the post office clerk, Of course she weigh um and ask what in it. I tell she. Why it is the next step she gine do is to measure the package with a tape measure too. I mean is not like I bring in me own cardboard box, I using an envelope that they the post office themselves sell me, that is a standard size. Why she had to remeasure it? That aint mek no sense to me. Dem think I tamper wid de envelope and unmek it and stitch it back bigger than the standard size?
