Canada Day 2014
« on: July 01, 2014, 09:37:59 am »
Happy Canadia Day to all our friends from Canadia!

We give you thanks for Ryan Reynolds and William Shatner.

You lose points for Justin Bieber and Ted Cruz. (Yes, we can still pin him on you.)

xxoo, Altair
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

Why do you think we exported them?

I for one will celebrate the day with decent beer and Kinder Surprise.

I'm sorry for JB, he wasn't meant to come out. We had intended on keeping him caged in and dealing with him ourselves.

Not sure about Ted Cruz. This is the only time I heard of them?

I'm just sitting inside the nice air conditioned home with my parents because it's like 30C+ outside, probably nearing 40C and it just feels gross, draining and like a blazing inferno outside to properly celebrate.

You're welcome.

I for one will probably spend most of the day indoors just because Manitoba is experiencing some really weird, and wet, weather lately. Although we've hopefully planned to hit up the Assiniboine Park to see The Trews play live! Otherwise if it remains dry we'll see if people want to come over for a bonfire later.

Thank you! Sorry about the Beebz.

It's gorgeous out here in Vancouver, and apparently there's loads of pot cookies for sale in front of the art gallery. I however am avoiding the hottest part of the day and will emerge later for a run after cleaning the house physically and metaphysically. I will avoid the fireworks like the plague.

Hope ya'll have a great one!

Sorry we had to give the  Beebz to you, but who else will have him?  

It's been a muggy 30C+ here with chance of thunder bangers... Glad the tenant BBQ went well though.  Hoping the July 4th celebrations for you US friends turns out well weather wise :)

Thanks. I think - is that a typo, or intentional revenge for certain of our exports?

Just one of my favorite self-mocking "can anyone really be that stupid?" faux Ugly American locutions. (Except to my astonishment someone real and important [!!!]--not American, mercifully--actually said this: http://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/oh-canadia-australian-pm-roasted-for-slip-of-the-tongue-1.1859683#)

And yeah--revenge for Ted and Beebz.

I used it once on a nice Canadian couple I bumped into on the road in Iceland: "Oh! You're from Canadia!" I said in my flattest, blandest American accent, with a what I though was a knowing verbal wink.

The wink was totally lost. They were very polite (after all, they're from Canadia). Just looked at me like I had three heads.
