hmm. its an odd holiday, to me. canadianism , obiviously the main factor for its oddness.. When i was little i wanted to celebrate it, it seemed cooool.One of my favorite memories, is being on the boat, going ot friday harbour.. seeing all the flags and stripes and white picket fences, and out going americans.. man i wanted to be where they were.. i would have settled to living in bellingham or tacoma.. just to be american. NOw.. well i m here, its my tenth fourth as a california resident.. and its annoying and tiring and stupid. go figure.
