There’s a difference between rockin’ and rocking, I think.
While most of my older friends and colleagues in Canada long ago started doing the rocking chair thing with the likes of CBC Radio, I am still rockin’ on my feet to the beat of CHOM-FM (97.7) in Montreal. It has been a long love affair for me and for many Montrealers. CHOM has been providing us with musical nourishment for 45 years, to the day on Oct. 28, TooTall mentioned on air Monday. And the station is marking its anniversary with special programming during the next few weeks.
Tis the season for black, yes?
In keeping with the All Souls theme, I’m going goth for a while . . . and for quite a while, apparently, because I bought enough black nail polish to last a year at least. I wear a lot of black clothing and spiky black boots, anyway. So the only thing I am missing is black lip colouring — and I am working on that.
I’ve just done a post for my Turning the Page/Montreal Gazette site about the reported use of the word “terrorist” by Pat Robertson to refer to gay activists.
Feel free to discuss the issue back here or there.
I’ve done four blog posts for my resurrected blog — Turning the Page — on the Montreal Gazette site. Among them is one about some same-sex couples facing charges in Italy for kissing in public.
