Happy Just Another Canadian Thursday!

In Canada, this day is celebrated as the day that occurs between the third or fourth Wednesday, and the third, fourth, or fifth Friday of November. I'm not Canadian myself, but I stand with my brethren to the north on this day, and observe the traditional Just Another Canadian Thursday ritual of bemused head-scratching at the antics of most Americans.

Because here in the Ewe-Ess-of-Ay, we celebrate our own unique holiday--called Black Friday Eve--where we all gather together, and between mouthfulls of turkey, stuffing, gravy, and pie, we strategize our assault on retail centers in the coming days, and then watch football.

It's a weird holiday, but then, we're a weird group of people.

Also, I'm fairly certain that my spotty attempts at blogging will become even spottier for the next month, due to my aforementioned paying gig. If, however, you're jonesin' for a bit of balloonpiracy, you may follow the daily antics at The North Pole Times.

Yep, you Amarrrricans are weird alright- weird and wonderful!

Dude, we got hit with a nice little snowstorm last night. It's beginning to look a lot like...don't say it!!!!

Have a very happy holiday with your loved ones and your good cooking. Thanks for the link to the North Pole Times!

Thanks for the JACT wishes - Got up and had breakfast, went to work, came home and wondered why there was NFL football on TV. . . . .

Anyway, I hope your Thanksgiving was a good one.
