Eh, Canadians!

| | Comments (4) | TrackBacks (0)
I think the Universe is trying to tell me something.

And that something is that my destiny somehow involves... Canada. Or a Canadian.

I don't think, however, that my destiny will be quite as intimately involved with Canadians (or even one Canadian in particular) as HERS is.

Still, as the Canucks would say: One never knows, 'eh?

I mean, in recent months, the only reaction I have been receiving on this here horribly neglected blog was from spammers (plugging - brace yourselves - dental practices in the US-state of Utah (see? The USA - neighbour of Canada, hence another link!), but they were polite enough to take the time to write proper comments - just as Canadians would do, I'm sure - and only link back to their dental practices when it was time to leave their own URLs, but I appreciated the effort they made with their comments, so I left it up), and a few extremely courteous e-mails from Canadians asking if I would please use my blog to advertise their non-dental businesses. Because obviously they like getting NO ATTENTION and want to remain in complete obscurity forever, like this blog and I. Which is honestly something any sound business person (in Utah, in Canada and everywhere else) should aspire to!

And then, of course, there was THIS whole e-mail exchange of before. Which, unbeknownst to me, was about to set this trend of Canadians in my inbox...

Including a fantastic little exchange I had with a super clever Canadian, which ALMOST made me despise my real name a little bit less.

But more aboot that tomorrow. (Honestly!) 



























about
is a South African girl living in South Africa. That doesn't sound very original, we know, but you might find it remotely interesting when you learn that she has only recently returned to South Africa for the first time after a nine year, one month and two week (non-stop!) stint in the United States where she accidentally became an outlawed alien (also known, especially in immigration circles, as an 'illegal immigrant.' We prefer the term 'outlawed alien' ourselves). During her reversed exile from her homeland, she kept herself occupied by winning this website (but only after shamelessly bribing the judges) and thus being unleashed on the web where she slowly, leisurely became the World's Laziest Blogger; by being a nanny and by attending sci-fi conventions in search of other aliens. In the US, she also made her sailing debut, her international acting debut, tried and failed to learn the piano, and never learned to cook. She is hopelessly addicted to coffee, dogs (especially Labrador Retrievers), how-to books (with a particular fondness for her copy of the Time/Life A - Z Medical Encyclopedia), and she tends to grossly overuse parentheses (we're not kidding) during her attempts at writing, which you may - if you really have masochistic tendencies - subject yourself to by reading the words to the right of this column. If you REALLY and truly STILL want to know more, you can read her C.V. here.
Or you can stalk her send her some love via e-mail at: redsaid[AT]gmail[DOT]com

The Wish List (Because yes, she really does need more how-to books. Honestly!)
