As it seems that my first two series, entitled "Elevators" and "Ass Hat Awards" aren't really getting me anywhere, here is a new and slightly more generic (thus, hopefully more prolific) theme.
Things I love, and yet hate.
First in our series, inspired by the lovely Rachel:
I love that Canadians are so non-violent.
Yet I hate that they're so violently smug about it.
I love when Canadians end sentences with "eh?"
Yet I hate when "Eh?" is the entire sentence.
I love that Canadians have universal health care.
Yet I hate when I am forced to be exposed to their universal health care while in Canada. Because it sucks a fat one.
I love that Canadians are proud to wear their flag everywhere.
Yet I hate that they do this so to not be identified as Americans.
I love when Canadians point out that they burned down the White House in some random battle in the early 19th Century.
Yet I hate when Canadians forget that they were not actually doing that as an autonomous nation.
I love Strange Brew.
Yet I hate Canadian Bacon.
I once loved a Canadian boy.
Yet I hate him now. In retrospect, he was kind of a hoser.
I love that Canadians have the expression "hoser."
Yet I hate the fact that I can't use that expression without having to explain it.*
*I think it's important, in the spirit of international diplomacy, to end on a positive note.
