Have a nice weekend. Posted on 06/27/2002.

See y'all on Tuesday afternoon. I'm travelling to Canada, inadvertently celebrating Canada Day. Think of it! The country grants itself A WHOLE DAY! That's esteem!

And in honor of our neighbors to the north, here is Geddy Lee of Rush, with Bob and Doug McKenzie, singing what *should* be the national anthem, "TAKE OFF!" (4.36MB... and worth every bit!).

I want to add that the little flag in the "Canada" logo always looks like a bowtie to me.

Hee...we threw a party last Sunday in honor of St. Jean Baptiste Day, which is a big deal in Quebec (where my roommate is from). We're talking about having a Canada Day party, too, though I don't think the beer will be as good. Say what you want about Quebec, but I'll take a pint of Fin du Monde over Molson's any day...
