The True North strong and free!

Happy Canada Day to my Canadian friends and to those who just love all things Canadian (like me)!

I’ve been listening to the national anthem (in English and French, of course) and poking around canada.com for a while now. This linguistics-related article was interesting: Canuck-speak like learning a new language Oh, Bob & Doug, I’ve missed you. And I can’t wait to go to Tim Horton’s when I’m home (because we have them in Michigan even though we’re not a part of Canada… at least not geographically.)

Have a Happy Canada Day, eh?

    Happy Canada Day to you, too!

    And thanks for giving me an instant and insane craving for a T. Ho’s maple-glazed doughnut. At nearly midnight. In a sleepy little town in the Hautes-Alpes.

    Le sigh.

    oh yay! i’m going to quebec in august… which in hindsight, it seems kind of silly because then right after i’m going to france. i should picked something not so similar to france so i’d have a more varied experience, but no matter! I hope they have Tim Horton’s in quebec.

    You know, Ohio has the most Tim Hornton’s outside of Canada. I thought for sure it would be Michigan…random fact…and I’m going to be able t get some Tim Horton’s in LESS than two days! WHOO!

    I had no idea there were Timmy’s outside of Canada! 3 weeks until I totally ruin my diet by indulging in a sour cream glazed donut!
