And we can build our dreams...

...with suspicious memes!

Got tagged by Diva (and Liz) the other day. Normally I would just ignore it, but apparently the young ladies of Canada really want to know what is going on my little mind. Makes me kind of suspicious. Hmmm?

The Rules:

  • Write a list of things of which you are suspicious. Any number of them will do. Even the number 0 works. This is the first meme that can be done without even doing it. In fact, you're doing it right now.
  • Include the list of rules, if you feel like it.
  • Link back to the person who tagged you. Or not.
  • Tag however many people you want to tag. You can skip this step.
  • If you acted on rule four, leave comments on their websites to let them know that they have been tagged. This step is also completely optional.
  • Feel fantastic.

OK. I'm going to make this real simple. No big list. No painstaking details. Just gonna type for awhile about what makes me suspicious. First things first. Rules. Especially rules like the ones above. There are six of them, but four of them are completely optional and the last one can be accomplished by the simplest of things. I took a nice crap earlier and man did I feel fantastic afterwards! See? So lets call a spade a spade and change those rules to "suggestions".

There. That made me feel better.

But you know what really makes me suspicious. Canada and Canadians. They look like us (mostly), act like us (mostly) and talk like us (mostly). Yet there they are, right above us, ready to pounce. We'll never see it coming. One day we will be wiping our asses after a really fantastic crap and they will attack. French will become a second language for the Northeast states and we will all learn to say "aboot".

And the worst part about it will be the emergence of hockey as a national pastime. Hockey and curling. Anything with ice, really. Isn't it cold enough up there most of the year? Why the hell would you want to create ice indoors? For sporting events? Sickos!

Note - Tongue firmly placed in cheek here, if ya couldn't tell. I'm crazy aboot Canadians! :)

Um. I so hope that you guys don't have to have french as a second language. It kind of sucs.

I don't say aboot. I don't. I'm too close to the states so I seem to have missed those types of things.

I do say aye. I admit it.

As for hockey...there are a few hockey related people... okay one in particular... that I have recently developed a deep affinity for so... I have to defend it. But not your typical hockey affiliated people really - like NOT the players. They are mostly meat heads.I will just say this; I HAVE to love it. In a very non biased/won't ever pick a team kind of a way. AND not just because I'm Canadian - besides - there are more American teams in the league than Canadian. What does that say??

Earl refused to click a link on my blog earlier, he seemed to think it would lead to a story about the England national football coach being sacked - it doesn't, it's a story about how the guy singing the anthems at the start of the game got the Croat one wrong. Quite brilliantly wrong, in fact. Pornographically so.

It's a great, great story.

Diva - oh, so that's how you spell toque! :)

badger - I done clicked it!

Liz - no worries. I was just joshing. Kinda. ;)

yeah, i commonly call it "toh-Cue" cuz that's how it looks when you spell it.

and i don't say aboot... that's more of an Ontarian thing. and 'eh' isn't as common as you'd think either.
