Happy Belated Canada Day!
« on: July 02, 2012, 09:51:53 am »
To all you Canadians, I'm a day late, but Happy Canadia Day! Joyeux Fete du Canada!

And oh how I envy you for living in a sensible, enlightened land. Even if it is frozen.
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

Not in July. :)  I had to watch the fireworks from my living room because we've had a heat warning for people with heart conditions for most of a week now.  I much prefer the winter.  When it is actually freezing out I can move and breathe much better.

(Luckily I live near the waterfront and always have a good view of fireworks without going outside)

Absent
I smile when I\'m angry.  I cheat and I lie
I do what I have to do to get by
But I know what is wrong, and I know what is right
And I die for the truth in my secret life

   In My Secret Life, L. Cohen

Thanks!

I don't know about the sensible, enlightened part. Stephen Harper is our Prime Minister, after all.

I didn't do anything patriotic, but I did attend the Pride Parade, which happened to be on Canada Day.

Thank you!  And oh god is it not frozen right now: I'm sitting in my apartment trying not to melt.  

And yes, on the enlightenment!  Harper is pretty terrible, but as an American expat his awful barely raises a blip on my batshit-o-meter.

Junuary becomes Julyuary (or "July is a Lie"). (It is pouring rain right now.)

As for enlightened and sensible.... Nope. Life in the Harperium is tougher every day.

From what I've read about Harper, he's a mild loon compared to the loons in US politics.

Belated Happy Canada Day, y'all.
