Thoughtful Thursd-eh

I am feeling a little patriotic today, for some inexplicable reason.

As a result, there will be no explicabling.

Instead, I will offer up a primer on my neck of the woods.

(Because we're hosting the 2010 Winter Olympics, and I would hate for you all to feel uninformed of the city you could potentially be visiting - forewarned is forearmed)

(And I know you have a right to bear arms - I would surmise that forearms fall into that category somewhere)

(OK, that was really stupid - I really don't know how civil rights and physiology are even remotely similar)

(Must. Have. Coffee.)

In case you're interested.

Because you know, relations between our two countries are about to heat up, baby. New president - new game. I'm hoping for Nude Twister.

Our borders are already touching.

Without further ado (I'm a little short on ado today), a snippet from Will Ferguson's "How to be a Canadian":

"British Columbia: "Recycled, Free-Range, Hand-woven - and All Organic!" (Rust is organic, right?)

Location: Somewhere between California and Alaska, appropriately enough.

Main Industries: Forestry, whaling, tourism

Main Hobbies: Anti-forestry, anti-whaling, anti-tourism

Main Export: Beef

Main Import: Vegans

Provincial Flower: Mildew

Sunshine: Intermediate

Long-term Forecast: Not so good

Provincial Motto: "We don't think that's very funny."

...Lair of the Ogopogo and the place where the sun sets on the nation, BC is a land of tai chi and chai tea, where the trees are cedar, the condos are leaky, the coffee is Starbucks, the tie is dye, the poles are totem, the reviews are mixed and the stone-age neanderthal Sasquatch is real. "

Sounds like paradise to me. Any Moose about? My kids are very into Moose. Meese? Mooses?

Countess MPM: Insanity loves company.

Come on over.

Countess BA: I believe it is Moosi.

Like octopi.

Sadly, none exist in our corner of suburbia.

Skunks, squirrels, herons, bald eagles. That's as exotic as it gets.

Countess HH: Just remember - this is Will Ferguson's sass - I'm just the messenger.

I suppose anti-Olympics should be there as well...
