Oh Canada!

Ha ha ha -- joke's on me. I thought I posted this two weeks ago and it seems I only saved it as a draft. D'oh... So pretend this is December 18th and share my patriotic joy:

The Olympic Torch came thru my town today, and although I had no interest in standing out in the cold to watch the procession, I just happened to be in the right place at the right time and witnessed a little piece of patriotic history.

IT WAS SO AMAZING!! Can't begin to explain my reaction -- swollen with emotion, tears threating to spill over with pride -- as I stood amongst hundreds of school children who waved little flags and shouted "Go, Canada, go!!"

And now I'm psyched about the Olympics :)

Yeah! Go, Canada, go! I've been watching the torch's progress every night on the news. I'm totally into it.
