Woo Hoo, getting published.... again.

It was less than a year ago that one of my stories from the campaign trail appeared in albertaviews magazine and they have again asked to print an excerpt from one of my blog entries.

I will admit the compliments in the email certainly put a little pep in my step for a few days and likely will again once I pick up the magazine.

If you would like to have some fun with this guess which blog entry they are interested in and if you are feeling really confident, guess which portion they might be quoting in the March issue.

"Survivor - Alberta Style"

Thanks to one of my many sis's for this comical email.

Due to the popularity of the Survivor shows,

Alberta is planning to do it's own, titled "Survivor - Alberta Style"

The contestants will start in Cold Lake, travel south to Medicine Hat then west to Lethbridge, Fort McLeod and on up to Calgary. Then they will head north to Red Deer and Edmonton. From there they will proceed west to Hinton and north to Grande Prairie, then up along Highway #2 to Peace River, down and over to Slave Lake, Westlock and St. Albert. Then they will go to Ft. Saskatchewan, Vegreville, Vermillion and Bonnyville before eventually returning to Cold Lake.

Each will be driving a pink Volvo with Ontario license plates and a large bumper sticker that reads "I'm gay, I'm a vegetarian, Beer is harmful to your health, Conservatives stink, Rae in 2008, Deer hunting is murder, and I'm here to confiscate your guns."

The first one that makes it back to Cold Lake alive wins.

Good Luck to all contestants.
