This is how my husband celebrates statutory holidays… destruction to our basement. We are slowly getting our home theatre room finished. The plan is to put up a wall and a door. Right now we are in the destruction phase.

This is the room we are closing in on. I want to add a popcorn machine so I can eat my face off while watching movies naked. Why not? I live here.

I think that I will go sit in our hot tub and watch my husband through the window as he slaves away…

Now where did I put my drink?

Hey, I’m not a lumberjack, or a fur trader….
I don’t live in an igloo or eat blubber, or own a dogsled….
and I don’t know Jimmy, Sally or Suzy from Canada,
although I’m certain they’re really really nice.

I have a Prime Minister, not a president.
I speak English and French, not American.
And I pronounce it ‘about’, not ‘a boot’.

I can proudly sew my country’s flag on my backpack.
I believe in peace keeping, not policing,
diversity, not assimilation,
and that the beaver is a truly proud and noble animal.
A toque is a hat, a chesterfield is a couch,
and it is pronounced ‘zed’ not ‘zee’, ‘zed’ !!!!

Canada is the second largest landmass!
The first nation of hockey!
and the best part of North America

My name is NICOLE!!
And I am Canadian!!!
