July 1

What is today?

It's Canada Day! Fireworks, barbequeueueueues, and singing of that lovely national anthem O Canada. As an Alaskan, I'm frequently mistaken as being from Canada's most western province/territory - Alaska. That's ok, we like Canadians. Even though I do find this song to be hilarious. Serge and Kimby are Canadian. Yay Canada!

What else is it? Oh, it's my cousin Wendy's birthday. Wendy is 3 years younger than me. Her mom is 11 years older than I am. Yes, I come from a family of easy women and early breeders. But you know what? All three of my aunt's daughters have finished their BA degrees, and the youngest in school to become a Physician's Assistant. So, even if we have trouble containing our adolescent hormones, we do put an emphasis on education. And contraception, for this generation. I've always been proud of my aunt for not perpetuating a stereotype.

Oh, and I do believe that it is MICHELLE'S birthday today. Hmm. I wonder what INTERESTING birthday gifties will be arriving this week? The mind boggles....

I shall not inflict upon you the kid version of the Anthem. To say that it's jejeune would be an understatement.

Meanwhile, I'm ready for the Fourth. Got my DVDs of Yankee Doodle Dandy and of 1776.

What amazes me is how many Americans think Alaska is part of Canada.

My favorite question? What language ya'll speak up there?

My favorite observation? Boy, you speak English really good, for a foreigner.

My least favorite? Uh, Sorry we don't ship outside the United States.


First thing I learned how to say in Arabic? Don't shoot me, I'm Canadian.

Happy Birthday Canada, you guys just plain rock.

Tania is the most wonderful being on the entire planet.

Now you'll excuse me, but I'm feeling faint again.
