Happy Canada Day!

Yesterday I met up with sweetcherrytree and showed her the exciting sights of Ottawa on Canada Day weekend at 10 at night. Thrilling! Today ...I am... ??? I dunno but I am sure it will be very festive. I hope my fellow Canadians have a nice July 1, full of poutine and butter tarts and sappy Tim Hortons commercials.

In other news I now have an anon stalking my Tumblr to preach about Classic Who, so I guess I've finally "made it".

Haha. I've heard there's some Canadian rivalry going on. What province are you in?
I don't think we really have that in the states. Texas likes to think they're the best, but I don't think anyone cares, so it doesn't really matter.

And I've seen your tumblr! Due to Shinyopals and MRV, I think. I almost followed it, but my phone doesn't really register the follow button very well, so I decided to try later and forgot. Fixed now. ^_^

LOL OH CANADA, don't let our international reputation fool you. Canada has rivalries with itself all over the place. The only reason Canada is really a country is because we hated each other marginally less than we hated the idea of being American.

I'm in Ottawa, which is the nation's capital and is also in Ontario. Ottawa and Toronto have big rivalries I guess because we're the national capital and they're the provincial capital, but they're also a larger city so a) foreigners think they're the national capital, and b) they have a bigger population and everything that goes with it (concerts, etc). Also, we both have NHL hockey teams and for a few years we always met in the playoffs, so there's a big rivalry between the teams as well.
