I love Canada! No, really!

Tons of cool people are from Canada. Just look at this list.

Plus, I have a few readers from Canada too, like Bluepaintred and Gwenhwyfar. They're both in Saskatchewan. (If you're from Canada, let me know in the comments! I promise to love you! Unless that would make you feel creepy).

And, last Tuesday at ABC group, I found out that Kyle#2 Fred is from Canada also. Saskatchewan, no less! I mean, he lives here in Michigan now, but he started out in Canada, so he still radiates some residual coolness vibes.

And let's not forget about this guy in Ontario, who got arrested for drunk-driving his lawnmower down the sidewalk.

I embrace all of you.
Let's go eat maple leaf salads or something.

Saskatchewan kicks ass and really, you have to have a sense of humour when you live here. It's one of those "laugh or scream" kind of things. (And thanks for the link. You rule!)

Gwen: I love it when you spell "humor" with a "u". :)

Canadian living in Los Angeles. So many Canadian readers... must be our quirky sense of humour.

Janna said...

Wavemancali: Ooooh! What part of Canada?

Steven said...

My family lived in Canada for a couple generations. Okay, so it was in the early 1700s, but do I still qualify for some Janna love?

Gwenhwyfar said...

Janna, I love it when you put "Gwen" and "Love" in the same sentence.
I'm thinking about adding "u" to even more wourds, you know just for fuun. What dou you think?

Janna said...

Steve: You can have all the Janna love you want, as long as you start sending me fountain pens.

Gwen: Youu shouuld staurt blougging this way.

Travis said...

Canada rocks and so do Canadians!

Pipper said...

I don't live in Canada, but I love how they spell color- does that for anything?

Janna said...

Travis: I agree!

Pipper: I love the extra "U" they put in "colour" too. And "humour" and "savour" and "flavour".

Wavemancali said...

I'm a multi province Canadian. I was born in Ontario, raised in Nova Scotia from 8 years old, and moved back to Ontario in my early 20's. I have lived in British Columbia as well.

Janna said...

Wavemancali: Wow. How exciting! (Look! Goose bumps!)

Grumpus said...

Here is another person from the North, who also adds "u"s to many words!
In the olden days, our teacher told us this discrepancy in spelling arose because Americans wanted to save on printing press costs, so they butchered the king's English...rather, phased out all so-called redundant letters. What do you think?? It seems fishy to me. Teachers were full of propaganda in my neck of the woods.

I live in Vancouver, BC! You are more than welcome to think I am the radicalest thing since sliced radical bread because of it.

Bluepaintred said...

canada might be neat and all, but we also get hail in july. hail that murders innocent little apples!

Janna said...

Grumpus: The best sandwiches are made with sliced radical bread.

Bluepaintred: Poor apples....
