Klondike Bar in the Arctic


Glacier. Joel Glacier.

So today was the big Klondike Bar “get out the vote” effort starting in earnest:

Speaking of which, before I go on, if you want to vote for me:

Just click on this link, register, type “happyjoel” in the search box and enjoy. (then give each copy of the video five stars.) Moving on…

You may notice, on the right hand side of this page, a picture of me in the Arctic Circle. Arctic Svalbard, technically. And that’s a glacier behind me. It was big, and I think my shoulders look hilarious, but that’s not the point…

The point is, in my Klondike bar video, I literally did more work than on anything else I’ve ever done in my life. Like, in order to film the video, and get footage of me holding Klondike bars in front of wild polar bears, I had to plan ahead. Like, REALLY plan ahead. Not like, “I should pay my bills this month” plan ahead (which usually never works anyway) but like, “I’m going to have Klondike bars with me, write a song, start filming months in advance” etc.

The other thing is, I feel like this is how running for political office works. You spend the vast majority of your day writing very personal, pleading emails to all the people in your life who you think believe in you, and begging them to do their best to get you elected. So, basically, I’m declaring my candidacy for the year 2027. I know they don’t have elections in odd numbered years yet, but I’ve got a feeling 2027 is my lucky year.

So all in all, today has been a busy day, but now that people are home from work and not looking to waste paid hours on the computer, it’s time for me to rest a bit. I’m thinking nap. I’m probably going to dream about Klondike Bars in the Arctic in front of the polar bears, and if you reading this are doing your job for the campaign, you should be dreaming about them, too.
