preparing to mourn our lost Jon

I’m going to Hot Docs tonight with Ken, to watch Jon’s last show on the big screen with hundreds of other mourners – the place is sold out. SOB! I am going to walk there, which means I will not be able to watch the leader’s debate on TV tonight. Oh, who am I kidding? I couldn’t bear to watch it if it were the last show on earth – just hearing that man’s voice makes me want to puke. I pray I pray I pray that Mulcair and Trudeau, or one of them, knocks Stephen Harper clean out of the park. Please. It’s not that much to ask.  I know the Republican candidates – or at the New Yorker puts it, the clown car – are having a debate tonight too. Now that would be fun. But I will be busy sobbing for Jon.
OMG. I said I wouldn’t write and here I am only a few days later. Sigh. Maybe I just can’t live without you.
