It’s Canada Day!

1 Jul

WooHoo! It is Canada’s 150th Birthday today, time to celebrate! Or ya know, go to work if you work today…like I do… πŸ˜›

There will be parties, fire works, events of all kinds all across the country…it will be epic. Not gonna lie, I’m a little bummed I’ll miss out on the festivities but I look forward to hearing the stories from everyone who got to celebrate.

As with every Canada Day since I started this blog I am about to bombard you with YouTube videos celebrating the day, and possibly a cute meme or two if I find some I want to share.

Enjoy!

Okay, so “bombard” may have been a strong word, I fully intended to bombard you all but I can’t find as many videos as I thought I would, le sigh. So instead I will leave you a link to a story that is about as Canadian as it gets…

Canadian Census 2016

2 May

I saw a bunch of things online today about Canadians being excited to fill out the census and as a result they crashed the Government website…apparently this makes us all nerds.

Click on the link to read a BuzzFeed article about it…

Well add one more to the nerd club because I got my census stuff in the mail today and was excited to take part. πŸ™‚

I’m not sure why I am happy to fill out the census stuff, I mean really its just a form asking boring questions about me but, well, I dunno, I guess I think the census is important and I’m glad the new government brought it back.

Sadly I didn’t get the looooong version, sigh, so my experience filling out the census was only a couple of minutes, but hey, they’ll send one out again someday and maybe I’ll get the long one then!

I got sent an oddly sized envelope that has rip off sides. Don’t mind my hand hiding my addie lol

I enjoy the tag line “Complete the census – it’s the law”…I keep hearing Sylvester Stallone’s voice from when he was in the movie Judge Dredd and he says “I am the law!” πŸ˜›

When you open the envelope this is what it says (sorry it is cut off on the sides, my bad!) Along the top, where I cropped the picture, there is a personal code that I use when I log on to the website so they know it is me.

Aaaaand here is the first page you get when you go to the website. I can’t show you pics from when I was filling out the questions cuz ya know, privacy an all that πŸ˜‰ but I highly doubt any of you would be interested in that stuff anyways.

I can’t say for the long version but the short one is all multiple choice, except for one question at the end where you can write in any questions, or concerns, or comments. I wrote in that I wished I had gotten the long version lol I don’t think that is really the kind of comment they were looking for but hey, they gave me a platform to comment on so I’m gonna use it! πŸ˜‰
