Happy Canada Day


For all of the readers in Canada, Happy Canada Day. I hope that despite the holiday being on a Wednesday this year that you still manage to have some fun, enjoy the day, be with your friends and family, and of course be safe.

Let's celebrate with beer and poutine!


I'm not kidding, I really am going to have beer and poutine and try to watch the fireworks without falling off my balcony.

Beer and poutine do sound good right now.

Bonne fĂȘte au Canada!

Princess Shyness said...

Thank you, Enty. What a lovely gesture!

I think Wednesdays off are perfect, because you only have to work two days in a row, and anyone can make it through that. :) I usually take Wednesdays off when I need a break.

Happy Day to all you wonderful Canadians!!!

jax said...

vive le poutine avec bacon!

ItsJustMe said...

I just looked up Poutine and all I can say is I'M HELLA JEALOUS!

LauraM said...

Have a great holiday neighbors!

I love me some Canadians! Envious of your diplomacy with the rest of the world, your peaceful history, your liberal social views, your socialized medicine, and your same sex marriage acceptance and promotion.

My Canadian fella called early this morning that the L.A. morning news showed poutine and mentioned Happy Canada Day. We'll be flying both flags this Saturday.

Happy Canada Day.

Well thank you. Right now, my husband is lying on the couch watching the hockey draft. Poutine sounds good, actually.

Happy Canada Day!!!!!!

What is Poutine?

And Happy Canada Day!!

Majik said...

Sylvia....poutine is the most artery clogging but delicious concoction of fries, gravy and cheese (curds if it's done properly). Soooooo yummy....

I have neither beer nor poutine, so I'm smokin' dubes. Viva la Canada!!

bionic bunny! said...

what gladysK. said.
and i've been wanting poutine ever since i found out what it was.

happy canada day to my northern friends!!

Anonymous said...

Majik, thanks for letting me know what poutine is. It does sound devilish delicious hehehe.

jax said...

majik hoot hoot don't pollute!! lol.

poutine is easy to make at home.
beef gravy, cubes room temperature cheese,any kind will really do, and fries. its best from your local greasy spoon up here but in a pinch the home version satisfies all munchies!

Thank you Gladys for such kind words, it does make me proud to call Canada my home!

now i'm off to paint my face, act a fool and eat hotdogs till i puke! enjoy!!!

I'm American, and for curiousity what does a typical Canadian do on Canada Day?

Anonymous said...

It's a big deal in Ottawa. The city pretty much shuts down and there's stuff going on everywhere. The night ends on Parliament Hill with Blue Rodeo and fireworks.

I hate to argue, Jax, but any type of cheese won't due. Cheese curds are what makes it so good. Mozzarella is ok but curds make it exquisite.

Happy Canada Day!!

jax said...

there are several things but i think people who celebrate it, get together with friends or family and do the 4th of July stuff you guys do. drink, BBQ, eat,be lazy,eat ice cream, pait our faces, raise the flag,see a parade.

which im finally off to do...eh.

(yes, i agree the curds are better, but you try to find them in Florida lol)

Linnea said...

god, how i miss cheese curds.

HAPPY CANADA DAY!

And Harriet, please be careful out on that balcony. I just hope you are on the second floor and not the fifth! :)

Linnea said...

ok, this has nothing to do with this post - but i just followed a link on dlisted and ended up on drunkenst and he just wrote the most disgusting piece about how he liked an outfit cause it would be so easy to rape the girl wearing it. I guess I havent read his site much, but i am really disgusted.

mooshki said...

Linnea, that's par for the course there. It's guy humor at its least pc.

Maja With a J said...

Yeah I don't like drunken stepfather either. I'm all for crude humour but it has to be funny, and in his case it's not because it feels like there's a lot of underlying anger and maybe a controlling mother figure. It's just kind of tragic.

And I am on the second floor, but the balcony underneath is winder so if I fall, I will fall on it. Not that I actually think I will fall over. It's just that we can sort of see the fireworks from out building but there's this TREE. That why you have to do some creative leaning if you want to catch the spectacle.

Going down there? NO WAY.

Maja With a J said...

winder = wider.

Geez.

chestnut-red said...

All you Canadians - Ditto on what Gladys said!!

Enjoy your fireworks and be safe...

califblondy said...

I called thoese little cheese chunks "squeaky cheese" cuz it squeaks when you bite down. That damn cheese is absolutely to die for. I guess because of preservatives we can't have that kind of cheese here, which sucks. When I visited, I was a happy tourist with a plastic bag of cheese curds and a Molson Light.

Jingle Belle said...

I'm a Canadian, living on the border with a river between my town and 2 towns in Minnesota. We have our fireworks and there are also fireworks from the people living on the river on the U.S. side. I think it is a wonderful gesture of friendship from our neighbours. And then 3 days later, we join them in celebration. Too bad we need passports to do it now. :(

Well thank you and Happy Canada Day fellow Canadians. I've been drinking Export all day and will enjoy the fireworks tonight. Hope I can remember them...

WOO HOO! Happy Canada Day!

Jungle007 said...

arrrgh Fuck you guys and your poutine talk! I'm craving one now and the old man is already half-plastered so I'm s.o.l...

Thanks Enty and everyone else for the wishes! Because of the city workers strike here in Toronto most of the celebrations have been cancelled. Hopefully someone will throw a crazy fireworks display tonight in my neighborhood!! If I wasn't preg I'd be enjoying some nice canadian coolers and a nice big canadian blunt :(

Next year!!!!!

gay tallywacker said...

Inmasuch as homosexuals have a Gay Pride Day, us heterosexuals should have a Breeder's Pride Day! Kathie Lee and Frank Gifford should lead the Breader's Pride Parade! Breeders can fornicate in the streets and in cheap hotels to celebrate the holiday!

Help support television and keep it independent! Legalize marijuana!

Hendrix and Richards were busted for smack at the Toronto Airport. Fuck Canada.

Dick Insideu said...

Cheese curds? HORSE TURDS!

Dick Insideu said...

POUTINE AND POONTANG!

Babs said...

Eh, all you hosers! I'll have some Molson's and back bacon in yer honor!

Long live Canada, eh?

P.S. I see our little friends are at it again. Can't wait for school to start up again in the fall.

Ahhhh. I had a lovely Canada Day!

In case anyone's curious, here in Vancouver (B.C., not Washington), Canada Day is usually supplanted by Cannabis Day, wherein there's a gathering downtown at the art gallery and a smoke-in. Really a good time!

RocketQueen said...

I missed all the wishes to us! Hooray everyone, and thank you. Hope your holiday off was as great as mine - laziness watching the NHL draft, pitch n' putt and a movie on a hot summer day. Bliss!
