Fly me to the moon

or anywhere else in Canada. See the plane above? That could be my plane taking me ANYWHERE IN CANADA TODAY FOR *FREE* since I share the same last name as a party leader who ran in the election. As I was being led around like a stray inmate at the voting poll yesterday, when I was finally led to the right voting station the woman who assisted me in getting my vote on told me a shocking story…

“Hey, your last name is Martin! Did you know that Westjet is giving away a free flight to anyone who shares the same last name as a party leader in celebration of the election?!”



Naturally I rushed home as if 1000 killer bees were chasing me to research this delicious good news.


I had to have booked my flight by THURSDAY OF LAST WEEK.


Another stipulation was that I absolutely had to fly today only. In all reality that would have been fine because I only have 2 classes today, and who the tits would pass up a FREE FLIGHT ANYWHERE IN CANADA?!

I shed a single tear because I could be in chilly Montreal today, or perhaps St. Johns, Newfoundland. Hell, I would even fly to Flin Flon Manitoba for free (though it’s been suggested that Flin Flon is stiny due to freezing sewage pipes in the winter that burst)!

So sadly I won’t be flying anywhere this month because Westjet was sneaky enough not to advertise this offer.

Ah well, I get to fly next month, so I’m not going to get all hot and bothered!

    oops. Sorry, I knew about that. I thought about telling your sis, but then I remembered she changed her name to Bought-a-truck. My bad.

    Oh c’mon Lmizzle – why not go to a place whose mascot is called “Flintabbatey Flonatin”?

    Of course – they do have a Ross Lake…

    BUT, if you went to Flin Flon, you’d be amongst your loyal subjects…

    and you could come back to tell us what the heck goes on in Manitoba!

    At least you’ll have opportunities like that. With a last name like “Murata”, I’ll be hard pressed to ever share a name with most people in the States. Sure, it makes me a bit more unique, but (surprisingly) people have trouble pronouncing the damn thing!

    Maybe I should just move to Japan…

    Or change your surname to “Flonatin”.

    Of course, by moving to Japan you would be the envy of us all…
