Canadian how's it goin eh!

Recommended Posts

Oh Canada! So great to find some Canadian Gals! :pointy:

I live in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Born and raised in Northwestern Ontario. Both my parents were born in Quebec...Gaspe...so I spent many summers at the family farm. Love my country and travelling within it. My recent travel goals involve visiting every captial city and province in Canada. I travel to Toronto on business quite a bit. Love the energy there but still love coming home. It is such a great feeling to fly over Lake Superior and see our familiar landmark "The Sleeping Giant". Ahhh...yes...my man Sleepy G. Home. Nothing beats the spectacular waterfront view here. We have some of the most breathtaking cottage properties here and I have been fortunate enough to have designed a few.

Anyone Gals here attending the TIFF? Wondering if our favourite man will be there. As luck would have it I will be there on business and hope to catch a glimpse of a famous face. My friend and I are holding out for either Gerry Butler or Colin Firth. A dream perhaps? :drool1:

Wishing you all a fabulous day! Hope you all are enjoying some great weather. We have had sun here for three days...totally unheard of...this summer it has been all about percipitation. I think our summer has just begun.

:behave:

Hey Thunder Bay. Though I am in Winnipeg, we might have a connection. My father is from Finland and did have friends in Thunder Bay. Have cousins on my mother's side in Kenora. Been through Ontario to Niagara Falls but not TO yet! Would love to go to TIFF but saving the $ for VEGAS.

Hey Lady in Winnipeg!

Love Winnipeg. My niece goes to university there and I have a friend that just moved there. I was there in February on business. The Finnish community is huge here in Thunder Bay. I think we have the second largest Finnish population next to Finland. Rick Mercer was here in the winter and did a segment on Lake Superior ice racing. I have heard he will be back to do another segment on the Finnish community. If you make it here...visit Bay Street and Algoma...visit the Hoito...for some Finnish pancakes...they are awesome. We are only 8 hours by car or a 1 hour flight.

When is the Vegas convention taking place next year? I have never been to Vegas. My sister keeps saying we should do a sister trip there. It sounds like fun.

Regarding TIFF...I was fortunate that my board meeting landed smack dab in the middle of TIFF. Also fortunate that a friend rented me a condo suite in her building for $75 per night...on Bloor no less. Unheard of in Toronto...especially during TIFF. All the hotel rooms are either booked or very, very expensive. It is pretty ridiculous when your accommodations cost more than your return flight.

:wow2:

Canadian here too Manitoba to more specific

Winterpeg born and bred

Hey there! I am in Winnipeg too. Just a small note for our Canadian gals. I saw Paul Gross at the Gimli Film Festival this weekend. He looks better in person!! he's off to the Toronto Film Festival to promote his new movie. He was part of a forum on producing and distributing Canadian movies. It was very informative.

:cunning:Oh Ladyfingers you lucky lady you! I love Paul Gross and when I started a petition to save his show "Due South" he sent me a thank-you kindly signed photo of himself in his red RCMP outfit :yummy: ....It mysteriously disappeared when we moved...I think my hubby must have been jealous of it! :tantrum: The only reason I never mention his name here among my other favorite men is because people asks me "who?" He is totally delicious! Hello all you Canadian gals it is like coming home for me here! :kisswink:

Hey If anyone is wishing to enjoy Scotland without the traveling too far, Folklorama starts this weekend in Winnipeg. The Scottish site is one of the best. The entertainment is non-stop, the display includes clan tartans and the food is authentic. Did you know there is a Polish tartan? Seems the Scottish fought with the Polish people when the Swedes were invading Poland. I guess that puts me in the S**TLIST with Scottish men because every Mc I've dated becomes distant. Chuckle, chuckle.

I'll keep trying and go the Scotland in Winnipeg.

A big hello to all the lovely Canadian Gals here! Hope everyone had a better week than I did. All week long my life was reminescent of a very sad country song. It all started on Sunday when my car tire blew out...and then the weekend went downhill from there. I took today off...but I would not call it vacation time...I would call it a mental health day.

I just checked out the TIFF schedule. RocknRolla is being shown on September 4th. I won't be in Toronto until September 7th. :fook: The TIFF Press Release states that Gerry will be there. I am really sad I won't see him. :boohoo:

I am nuts but I have this fantasy that I meet my friend for dinner in the trendy Yorkville area and we see Gerry walk into the restaurant. I am such a dreamer. That is one thing on my bucket list that I honestly feel will never be accomplished :seeyou:

If any of you GALS are going to TIFF and you meet Gerry...please tell him that Lisa sends her love. :ty:

Hi gals,

How's it going, eh? I can't imagine why people think we say "eh" all the time..... :metoyou:

I guess I have something in common with you both> Born & raised in Montreal, but now I live in Alberta.

I am seriously making plans for Vega$. I check the site every few days for updates. Because of my job, getting vacation time needs to be planned well in advance so Toronto is a no go.:(

Northern Ontario is cold, damp and rainy. Not ready for this! Can it be possible to be born and raised here in Canada and absolutely hate winter? Yes. I much prefer summer and fall. I am still scratching my head wondering where this year has gone.

Hello Fellow CanadianGALs!!! *waves*

I just recently joined this forum and just stumbles upon this post :) Well I too am a born and bred Canadian girl, Vancouver to be exact, but I moved to Kelowna about 2 and 1/2 years ago.

I agree with most of you that I almost never hear anyone say 'eh' and I don't use it either.

Well I just wanted to say Hi..so HI!!! :wave:

Cheers!

Hi Stuart,

Let's try to get this thread going again, eh. I'm from Montreal originally, but I live in Alberta now.

Hubby is from Glasgow. He's been here a little longer than you though. About 29 years longer.

Still has his acent though. Especially when he gets worked up about something, or ticked off.

I am so glad you like it here too. Don't forget that Gerry was part Canadian too; because he lived in Montreal at the age of 2 before moving to Scotland...It is a good excuse for we Canadians to snuggle up to him don't ya think? Being that it is so darn cold here; we need a big and rugged guy like him to snuggle up with on those cold and looooong winter nights! Even if it is only watching his movies and chatting about him here... Cleobethra can set you up with a sexy avatar and siggy/banner. I went to her before even attempting to make my own. Now after so long; I've made it a habit of changing so often; that I make my own.

You will also need a "trading card"; I chose Sigourney Weaver because to me she is my hero. I loved her in all the Alien movies. But you can choose whom ever you like then ask Cleobethra to make it for you.. Don't be shy; just go to the members section and if you have any problems; I'm sure Zanyzombie (Mod) will help. She is also another fabulous lady who leads us all here. As you post (in any thread) your rank goes up and you get another sexy avatar of Gerry. I made mine go up really fast at first by posting in the "Happy Birthday" or "Welcome to Gals" threads or the "gaming" area. I just know that you will have fun here...hugs May
