August 23 07


it’s no secret that i fancy myself both American and Canadian, and my loyalty probably lies somewhere closer to the American side. But i LOVE Canada. really, i do.

1. the lululemon

2. the Kraft Dinner

3. the Tim Hortons

4. the Mounties – ahahahaha

5. the Canadian Tire money

6. the toques

7. the “eh?”

8. the Feist, and the Emily Haines and all the other great Canadian singers and bands

9. the beer and the two-fours

10. the aero bars (yes, i finally tried one…)

11. the loonies and toonies

12. the Degrassi

13. the Hockey Night in Canada

what do you love about Canada???

if you’ve noticed a rather large addition to my sidebar this week…yes, it’s true, i’m a total sell-out. but, i love me some blogher, and so i practically jumped at the chance to advertise for them. um, yeah, and also…the money doesn’t exactly hurt either…

please come over and visit me at Fabulous today….and choose where i go on vacation!!

  1. Between you and Haley today, I need me some canadian candy!!! You should mail me some. 🙂

    And I think I need to get on this lululemon bandwagon.. I only hear of them from you guys – they’re not here at all yet. I should buy them and start the trend.

  2. What I LOVE about Canada?

    Everything, cuz.

    I. am. Canadian!


    It’s true, I love just about everything.

    Comment by sam on August 23, 2007
  3. What do I love? Virtually free healthcare (well pre-paid if you consider how much we pay in income taxes…).

    Comment by Just Janice on August 23, 2007
  4. The chocolate looks good!! I’m new but glad to be apart of the whole TT meme!!

    Comment by Lori on August 23, 2007
  5. DEFINITELY the hockey. But also Vancouver, Victoria, and the surrounding area.

    Comment by Nancy on August 23, 2007
  6. I am not Canadian, but they just opened a Lululemon in my ‘hood, and I am a junkie! Best workout line ever!

    Comment by Cynthia on August 23, 2007
  7. Coffee Crisp. Lick’s. Corner Gas. Speaking of gas – pumping your gas without having to pre-pay. Pickup ice hockey games all year round. Poutine. Bob & Doug McKenzie. ‘The Beer Store’. McIntosh apples. Ginger Ale that isn’t spicy. Back-to-back World Championships. All the South Park characters with split Canadian heads. Beaver. Mmm.. beaver.

    Comment by Giblet on August 23, 2007
  8. Heh those lovely Candian chocolates come originally from the UK and we do have some great candies here.

    I’d love to send you some really good stuff but I used to send them to my grandkids in the US but Home Security won’t let me anymore without USDA {i think that’s right} certificate and no one understands their bloody website.

    Love your blog and I’m a regular reader but more of a lurker LOL.

    Comment by Vanda on August 23, 2007
  9. I used to love Degrassi Junior High. 😉

    Comment by Stacy on August 23, 2007
  10. hi Ali,that was funny!what a great idea for thursday 13.

    Comment by LAVENDULA on August 23, 2007
  11. Don Cherry is awesome, hockey was never that interesting until my Canadian introduced me to him.

    But you can’t make a list like this and omit the Kinder Surprise…I’m just sayin’. It’s my only request when the in-laws come for a visit.

    Comment by AJ on August 23, 2007
  12. I prefer the *old* degrassi junior high, not this hyped up new generation blah. And where did Wheels go? I wonder.

    Comment by hello insomnia on August 23, 2007
  13. Damn, I love Degrassi…

    The other stuff…I am so sheltered…Not a clue.

    Comment by ~JJ! on August 23, 2007
  14. I love “zed” instead of “zee” and the fact that 77 kilograms just sounds thinner than 170 lbs and one year of maternity leave and Macintosh toffee and the CBC and … well, I could go on! Did you know that the BlackBerry, the Bloody Caesar, five-pin bowling, green garbage bags, insulin, the zipper and the Wonderbra are all Canadian inventions? Okay, I need to go find me some maple sugar candy or something…

    Comment by DaniGirl on August 23, 2007
  15. Hmmm, what I like about Canada….MINDEN! He lives in Canada. There you go. 😉 FAB list! And, the sidebar looks PERF — great job with the font et al!

    Comment by haley-o on August 23, 2007
  16. Well. Now I’m singing O Canada with a tear in my freaking eye. I like Toonies and Loonies – walking around with a pocket full of them makes me feel like a pirate. Arrr.

    Comment by Rebecca on August 23, 2007
  17. I LOVE Degrassi. LOVE LOVE LOVE. I’m addicted to Degrassi, all of it, from The Kids of Degrassi Street to Degrassi: The Next Generation.

    I also love our apologetic nature, the beautiful campgrounds and provincial parks we have, our penchant for maple syrup and beavers, Mike Myers, Dan Ackroyd and Bob and Doug McKenzie and Coffee Crisps.

    But wait. I’m kind of confused. Don’t they have two-fours in the states?

    Comment by mamatulip on August 23, 2007
  18. I don’t know a whole lot about Canada…so this was very interesting to me!!!

    Comment by FENICLE on August 23, 2007
  19. I would whore myself for Lululemon!

    I love The Tegan and Sara, the cottage, the clean, the beavers, the nice people and I really love the “eh!”

    Comment by chantal on August 23, 2007
  20. You forgot POUTINE! Which should have come directly after LuLu.

    All the other ones were right on eh!

    Comment by jasmine on August 23, 2007
  21. i love the national anthem!

    Comment by lara on August 23, 2007
  22. I love Canada and everything in it

    Comment by Iris on August 23, 2007
  23. Well, I am a dual citizen. Canadian/American. I am living in BC right now and I have to say that i love Canada because of the health care system, the Canadian Beer 🙂 and the fact that we get to enjoy all Canadian and American things!! Kinda gay I know but really, it’s so hard to find Canadian things in the States. Oh and I LOVE that I get paid to be on Maternity Leave for a FULL YEAR!!

    Comment by Suzanne on August 23, 2007
  24. Canadian comdians!!

    Comment by best home teeth whitener on August 23, 2007
  25. Trailer Park Boys, butter tarts, and the metric system.

    Comment by Lu on August 23, 2007
  26. I feel so…so….so American right now. I am clueless on most of the things you listed, lol.

    Comment by BlondeBlogger on August 23, 2007
  27. I really enjoyed this list. since I’m not Canadian, i got to school myself in enjoyable canadian things. However, I feel as if I would love both the beer & chocolate because..I love both any day of the week as it is..

    Comment by manda on August 23, 2007
  28. I also love all things Canadian. I would be interested to see what your 13 things you love about America.

    Comment by Jenn on August 23, 2007
  29. ahhh the Lulemon again.

    is it bad that I watch DeGrassi the Next generation now on TV?

    Comment by Sparky Duck on August 23, 2007
  30. Ahhh, Degrassi!

    Welllll, I’ve only seen a few of the DJH episodes, but the Next Generation is one of my favorites!

    As with Grey’s Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, and Friends, I’ve gotten all my friends to watch it, and it really is better that way so I can talk about it all day on Saturday.

    Great TT. Almost makes me want to live in Canada. . . almost!

    P.S. the reason my URL is my mom’s blog is because you totally have to check out my guest blog. i’m so proud of myself :]

    Comment by Haley on August 23, 2007
  31. Loved this list. And I know this could totally get me kicked out of the country, but I will admit to you two of my dirty little secrets: I hate hockey and Tim Horton’s. There. I said it. I feel better now. Can we still be friends?

    Comment by andi on August 23, 2007

    Comment by andrea from the fishbowl on August 24, 2007

  53. Normally I really don’t go through write-up on sites, however I prefer to express that this kind of write-up incredibly pushed everyone to undertake this! Your publishing preference has become surprised everyone. Thanks a lot, very nice report.

  54. Although we thought Skylanders Hot Head looked really great onn the iPhone’s skylanders 101 sunburn retina display.
    Instead of waiting to skylanders 101 sunburn be invited to
    be a line watcher. That’s really a light rod, but a complete load backbon from here down.
    Here iss Cynder, I haven’t played her much but, she looks pretty cool she’s got like
    wings like Spyro, kind of like that. Also a greater number off spins means you are able to analyse more spins in less time.
