Some lovely blogger ladies are doing a blog everyday in July challenge and I thought I’d give it ago myself. Today’s topic is Canada Day (you can see the rest of the list below), so since the only things I really know about Canada have to do with Tim Horton, Robin Sparkles, and an ill-planned poster Toronto Stronger poster, and that Dean McDermott cheated on Tori Spelling while filming Top Chef Canada.
If you know me you know I love a good doughnut so if I am to travel across the border my first stop will likely be Tim Horton’s to try their Creamy Caramel Iced Capp Supreme and Honey Cruller.
I have officially watched every single episode of How I Met Your Mother and was incredibly disappointed with the ending. As much as I love Robin, and her alter ego Robin Sparkles, I was beyond pissed they killed off the “mother” and divorced Barney and Robin. I guess it was more of a “reality” ending, but can’t everyone just be HAPPY!!!
Lets talk about that ill-planned “Toronto Stronger” poster brought to a game by a Maple Leaf’s fan. I’m from Boston, I had a number of friends who were within a block or two of the Boston Marathon bombings and though I understand that everyone is untitled to their on opinion, I thought it was in poor taste to “poke fun” at a phrase that united a city and I was happy to read articles in the days following Game 3 about how many of his fellow Canadians agreed he was just a disappointment. (I’m not giving a picture of his sign the time of day on my blog).
I love reality TV. I love Tori Spelling (DONNA MARTIN GRADUATES!). I love Dean McDermott. I’ve loved all of their TV Shows (Inn Love, StoriBook, and now True Tori). I literally couldn’t peel my eyes away from the train wreck that was the True Tori show because I felt for her and I was so happy that she slammed him for not only hurting her family, and her children, but doing it so PUBLICLY. I hope that they pull through, but one of the last couple’s I said I loved was Sandra Bullock and Jesse James when he was crying when she won an Oscar for the Blind Side and then 10 days later it was announced that he was a cheating scumbag. So best of luck to you Tori, keeping making some damn good reality shows.
And that my readers is what I know about Canada. I guess its time to open up a geography/history book.
