Things Making Me Go “Argh”

Having one of those nights.

1. My daughter has had a fever off and on over the past three days.  It’s pretty high tonight.  It has me worried sometimes, especially when remembering her hospitalisation last year after a febrile seizure and suffering from pneumonia.  Scary stuff.

2. Immigration headaches are argh-worthy.  CIC website says to use the latest Adobe Reader to view the new forms.  Adobe Reader is updated to the latest version.  So when I try to view the forms, all it says is to upgrade my Adobe Reader.  I try again, and it is the latest version.  The forms still don’t believe my fully updated Adobe Reader is a fully updated Adobe Reader.

3. Immigration wants me to provide them with 9 recent photos of each person in my family, accompanying and non-accompanying, with the size of 35mm x 45mm.  Accompanying what?  How vague is that?  Do they want two people in the same photo?  If so, that doesn’t seem to fit the photo specifications they want.  So unclear.  I really dislike unclear instructions on government forms.

4. Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and this post on the Huffington Post.  This has been a problem for a while now, and every time I see something about the muzzling of Canadian scientists by the Canadian government, I want to shout at Stephen Harper that his policies on scientific research are making Canada the laughing stock of the world.  Our scientists can’t do their jobs properly because of this moron.  Yes, I called him a moron.  Environment Canada is being stripped of vital funding because, to him, profit is more important that trying to combat climate change.

Well, I gave you some stuff to discuss.  Comments very welcome!
