Overheard:

Customs Agent in Minneapolis, after noticing I’m married to a Canadian: So, what you’re telling me is that there weren’t any American men good enough for ya? That’s a compliment to you, mister.

That agent was hilarious, and a welcome change from the crabby agents that welcome you in the Saskatoon airport (yes, I’m talking about you, Ms. Blonde chick).

We’re visiting home for 3 weeks — Emma is taking to my parents very well, and I’m taking to leaving her with them so I can have a break away for an hour or two. Life’s good.

Jane Austen, take me away!

I found a YouTube site with all of the A&E’s Pride and Prejudice series — you know, the one with Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy? Sheer delight! (especially since you can’t rent the series in town!)

At one point after Lizzie said one of her witticisms, Jerry looked at me and said, “she is so you!” I’m not so sure that’s a good or bad thing. (I can’t help but think it’s the former)

Don’t know how long it’ll stay up, so enjoy it whilst you can! Check it out here.

I’ll get you started:

A different kind of quotable:

[overheard on the Daily Show last night:]

Stewart: So, what do we do then? [regarding America's status in the Middle East]
Jason Jones: We? There’s no we, I’m Canadian! Everyone loves us. We’re like the world’s gay friend.

Quotable.

A good word is like a good tree whose root is firmly fixed and whose top is in the sky.

Another reason for mandatory drivers testing for the elderly

My mom was just hit by an elderly woman in a parking lot. Apparently this 80-something lady wasn’t looking and was driving too quick in the lot to stop in time.

My mom is okay. She’s banged up, and is having some X-Rays done — I’ll post more when I know more.

Unbelievable.

UPDATE (sorry for the delay): Mom’s doing as well as can be expected. The lady who hit her had the nerve to deny responsibility! I’m just glad my mom is okay, ang that I’ll be seeing her in less than a week.
