10:48 pm - Canada Day
Whew, ok, so I wanted to make the official Canada Day post after the fireworks show tonight and I just finally managed to get all the photos re-sized and uploaded about an hour after the show finished.  So finally;


For all my grumbling and bitching about you (mostly your crappy politicians) I still wouldn't choose anywhere else to live.  Wherever I go, I'll always look to your maple leaf with pride and your white and red flag will always hold a very, very special place in my heart.

I was going to post the photos from the fireworks show right here in this post, but I took over 90 photos and I'm too lazy to copy/paste the url into the "insert image" thingy over 90 times, so go here to log into my photobucket account as a guest using the password "bienvenue" and then click here for the album with all the photos of the fireworks after you've logged in.  Again, like the ones from last night, I took these photos from my window so there was the window screen in the way, not to mention trying to take photos of light at nighttime is quite a task, but I think they turned out ok, albeit blurry thanks to my unsteadiness.

And right now, right outside my window where Rideau St. passes (Rideau St. goes right in front of the Parliament buildings and is a main street downtown) there's a major traffic jam and people are honking horns and being drunk...thank god I live on the 18th floor.

Well then, I'm off to...well either sleep or watch something, I listened to O Canada for the whole fireworks show and now it's stuck in my head...so if I go to sleep now I'll probably dream O Canada or something @___@

G'night everyone, and once again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY BELOVED CANADA!!!

Happy (belated) Canada Day to you too! I just got back home and the fireworks were amazing...you pics are very nice as well! I totally agree...despite our crappy government, we are fortunate to live in such a great place...today at the Old Port, they were having a citizenship ceremony, and something that really touched my heart was what a young mother said to the crowd about how proud and grateful she was to have the opportunity to live in Canada after coming here from Sudan...I nearly cried when she and her little girl cried as they were recieving their certificates. It's such a beautiful thing to share this day with people from all over the world. Hope it was a good one-James
