Cangrats and condolances to all my Canadian friends. I congratulate all those who made it to a real life in civilization (USA , eh!)And condolances to those who didn't realize what direction California was in and ended up still on the periphery, but this time in Japan.Suck it up and find something red to hug.
Our Man is sure your heartfelt sentiments will be much appreciated.
'Suck it up and find something red to hug.'lol.....just been on the rev paperboys rather excellnet blog and it's all hugs and tears for the homeland ni a funny/touching way.naturally our man is the poor relation in the expats as we brits are rather too ashamed of our history to celebrate it.
It is a rather excellent blog. Our Man's been enjoying it too. Would it be blasphemy to suggest Canadians are much like Scousers, forever telling others how wonderful their home is, but unable to get a job there? (But then Our Man's on a somewhat sticky wicket on that too, so better not mention this point to anyone, Doc.)Can't speak for others, but Our Man is not overly ashamed of Britain's history. There aer plenty of good bits to be proud of. He does find it uncomfortable to wave the flag in others' faces though, and is rather proud that Britain doesn't feel the need (so far) to have an arbitrary day nominated as one to worship the nation.But once again, Our Man is probably out of step with the rest of the world on this.
Years ago I had a Canadian girlfriend. She really hated the US, once comparing it to Nazi Germany. Oddly, she lived and worked in the US because, she could not find work in Canada. She went to Australia for about 6 months and hated that too. Went back. To the US.But yes, criticism of Canada is blasphemy if you are from the US. Otherwise, it because a Canadian hasn't properly introduced you to its charms by contrasting it with the US.
