Hug a Mountie

Continuing with our Jason Mraz/travel/exploring other cultures theme, I’d like to say Happy Canada Day to my friend, Canadian Chris, and to any other Northest Americans out there. A few months back I celebrated ANZAC Day in honor of all my Aussie and Kiwi friends, and so I’d hate to let this important holiday slip by unnoticed, even if I know nothing about it, other than that it’s on my calendar.

Also, when I just wrote that “Hug a Mountie” line, I had some happy flashbacks to an old show called Due South. Did you ever see it? It had a noble, honest, courageous Mountie paired up with a cynical American faux-macho cop to patrol Chicago. I think the show was suposed to poke a little fun at the uptight, goody-two-shoes Cannuck, but of course he always came out the hero while the American was just a well-meaning dumbass.

I also see, at imdb.com, that the guy who played the hottie Mountie, Paul Gross, also played a character named Geoffrey Tennant in a show called Slings & Arrows, which is a nice little tie-in to our other resident sexy nice guy, David Tennant.

This week our Prophet Mraz continues EuroTour 2007, establishing goodwill between fans of quality entertainment, non-sequitors, and crazy hair everywhere.

How can we get lost running in a straight line?

    A more complete, ‘Canadian-y’ response to follow, but for now, let me counter a Canadian holiday with an American one.

    Aha! So it’s true! (Based on on opinion column)…

    I can’t believe you found that article. It actually mentions my little hometown, Dublin. Legal fireworks are about the only thing Dublin gets in the paper for anymore. I miss the good ol’ days when Heidi Fleiss was in the local prison and Brian Boitano trained at our ice rink. Yep, that put Dublin on the map.
