Inspired again... finally!

Ok so I haven't blogged for like what a few days? or even maybe a week? I have been busy with stuff! and nothing but boring thoughts and no inspiriation to write anything but the multitude of tax returns I do every year for various family members. Yeah!! Woot only 2 left to do. Ok so why am I here now? Well just got in from work and my guys made me an awesome plate of waffles and sausages for my late night dinner or supper depending on where you are from (see "You Know You Are From..." posted below) eheheh.. and yes Sara I am getting to that in a sec! So I am checking my email, and reading some of the crochet/knit related emails, and pigging out on waffles and sausage, when I wondered if Sara made changes to her blog today. Well when I got there I got a pleasant surprise! Sara your blog looks great! and hence the inspiration to post to mine tonight. OK so as I am reading You Know You Are From Alabama When... and thinking that hmmm... in my last lifetime was I like born and raised in Alabama? or maybe did a gypsy steal me from an Alabamanian (hey is that a real word?) family when I was only days old!! Geesh Alabama must be just like Canada! only warmer of course! (yes I am shivering as I type this) LOL Then at the bottom I found the link to the rest of it, and found, low and behold, NOPE not from Alabama! Not even in another lifetime! I am Canadian! and That's a fact! I am sitting here reading You Know You are from Canada When.... and smiling... and nodding... and going UH HUH out loud even though it is after midnight and everyone else has been asleep for HOURS! So thanks Sara. You have shown me my true heritage! ahem.. and also a new place to find bloggin' inpiration... And I haven't even started in about crochet or knitting yet......

You Know You're From Canada When...


You're not offended by the term, "Homo Milk."

You understand the phrase, "Could you pass me a serviette, I just dropped my poutine, on the chesterfield."

You eat chocolate bars, not candy bars.

You drink pop, not soda.

You know what a Mickey and 2-4 mean.

You don't care about the fuss with Cuba. It's a cheap place to go for your holidays, with good cigars.

You know that a pike is a type of fish, not part of a highway.

You drive on a highway, not a freeway.

You have Canadian Tire money in your kitchen drawers.

You know that Casey and Finnegan were not part of a Celtic musical group.

You get excited whenever an American television show mentions Canada.

You brag to Americans that: Shania Twain, Jim Carrey, Celine Dion and many more are Canadians.

You know that the C.E.O. of American Airlines is a Canadian!

You know what a touque is.

You know that the last letter of the English alphabet is always pronounced "Zed" not "Zee".

You understand the Labatt Blue commercials.

You know how to pronounce and spell "Saskatchewan."

You perk up when you hear the theme song from "Hockey Night in Canada."

You were in grade 12, not the 12th grade.

"Eh?" is a very important part of your vocabulary and more polite than, "Huh?"

Winter. Whenever you want it. And then some.

There's German food, Italian food, Chinese food, Armenian food, American food, but NO Canadian food.

You call a "mouse" a "moose".

You like the Americans a little because they don't want Quebec either.

Contests run by anyone other than the government have "skill-testing questions" that winners must answer correctly before they can claim a prize.

Everything is labelled in English and French.

Milk comes in plastic bags as well as cartons and plastic jugs.

Mountain Dew has no caffeine.

You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from Canada.

Lyz,
I just popped into your blog and subscribed to it. Now I'll know everytime you update. BTW, I thought your "you know you're from Canada" quiz is hilarious. You know someone from CKT it going to Cuba (she is from Canada) and I think it is soooo odd. Proof of how American I am! LOL!!
