I know. It's such a bother. I've never got used to the idea of butter being measured in anything other than patties.

Still, life must go on.

I went into the garage yesterday for a smoke/beer. A gang of little kids (age 6-7) were outside playing street hockey. At one point I yelled out "2 minutes for hooking!".

Sad, sad, sad........

Worse still, I can spot the Air Canada flight to London when it passes over my house. Souvette has banned me from explaining why to company.

I had to go into the garage; I don't smoke in the house and the garage is where I keep the 24.

On reflection, you're right.

I was actually thinking "too long on BE" when I started the thread, but I guess "too long in Canada" could apply too.....

You talk to your Aunt on the phone and she tells you you have a Canadian accent.

I've got a spreadsheet. There's some surprising correlations.

Are you implying that number of posts is proportional to bra size?

I wholeheartedly disagree with that and could prove it should I indeed wish to
