When I think of Canada I think:
How funny we must sound to everyone else, cause we aren't cool
but a lot of Canadians think we are. But we really do suck.
Music and sex: Is there a difference? Why?
They differ in that you can generally bring music and have it be accepted where ever you are, unfortunately sex isn't always viewed the same. In general though they relate in everything else. Such as cost, sweat, shivers, convenience, the hole in the middle of the CD. Another thing different is the smell.
Strangest brush with celebrity:
Won a hockey stick autographed by Don Cherry and got to put my arm around him and get a picture taken. Yeah I know he's not a celebrity but it was cool. I dont know, my friend was an extra in a movie and smoked up with Joey Jeremiah. This is just as cool.
What does your mom wish you were doing instead?
She loves me whatever I'm doing. My dad on the other hand would like it if I worked with anything that has a motor.
