huzzah! might go check out the river today, there's supposed to be something or other happening down there. and a parade somewhere i think, but you know how small town parades are. a fire truck and 3 clowns, think i'll pass

I'm singin' here to get rid of fear
Hope it disappears right here with the rain
But I know life is pain, not like a fairytale
Meaningless to pray, so just goin' on my way

For some reason, we (Canadians) always seem to have holidays mid week. I guess I shouldn't complain though.. a day off work is just fine for me





Anyway.. Happy Canada Day, Eh!!

Yes Robert I am. It was long after 1867 that Canada could make its own decisions and legislation w/out Britain giving its OK. But I am HELLA DRUNK AND LOVE CANADA right now. Please read up on the Statute of Westminster (1932 I think) and the Constitution of 1982. These two documents made Canada more independent. Anyway, history ain't my bag I'm getting back to tha festivities. GO CANADA!

I am aware of the two documents and will concede we had more independence afterwards. But our nation was indeed still born on this date, as a Dominion. (Thus the original name of the holiday was Dominion Day).



Man... I am partied out. This has been one heck of a good time here tonight.
