it's a long story.

oh can_a_daaaaaaaaaaa

i wish i knew why, more importantly, i wish it would stop. it has been WEEKS and i still have the canadian national anthem stuck in my head. i thought perhaps it was a sign to touch base with pastor len and yvonne... he didn't think so but he was pleased to hear from me.

now i'm wondering if i need to go to canada... is this like a "if you build it they will come," kinda thing? crap. do they even play baseball in canada?

oh, and "o." apparently they don't use the h up there. also, i think they are a more concise people. have you ever taken a look at our national anthem, word-count wise? there are 63 words in o canada. i thought our anthem would be significantly longer, i guess it just takes longer to sing... it's 80 words. but wait, that's just the first verse... there are 4 verses... for a grand total of 312 words.

i was about to say, "all this crap is interesting..." but i realized it's not.

but i still have o canada stuck in my head without any explanation and it doesn't appear to be going anywhere soon... just like the country, america's top hat.

the other day i was wondering...

... how did find things out before the internet?

i mean really. i don't recall. i DO remember that i fancied myself the queen of resourcefulness, but i sure do NOT recall exactly what i did to earn that title.

this fond introspection comes on the heels of eggs. if eggs had heels. which they don't. but it sounded poetic.

so last night i'm assembling a salad for my lunch today... yes i said SALAD. shut up.

i thought some hard boiled eggs would be a nice addition. so i went to the internet to find out how to do it. and the internet responded brilliantly and behold, there was egg. eggs i mean. hard boiled eggs. it was fantastic.

today, i turned on the monitor and up came the recipe for boiling an egg... and i thought to myself, this just might be the most pathetic thing i ever googled.

though truth be told, i can't be sure.
