Complete and Utter Randomness.

God. It's so cold out. Today it was -30 with the wind chill. I've really got to get over myself and get a hat, because it *hurt* my *face* to be outside today.

Anyways, as some of you know, I'm currently making an SGA vid. The beginning kind of sucks at the moment, but I'm hoping the ending will kick ass. I know I'm getting to the hard part, since I've been working on it for an hour or two already tonight and haven't even gotten 10s done. *head desk* But! They're an awesome almost 10 seconds, and the clips were hard to find.

I've been finding the clip searching aspect of things really depressing, because every time I see Carson, it makes me really sad. Also, my next vid is totally going to be about Weir. *shakes fist at TPTB* Why are you ruining my show!

While we're on the topic of SGA, did anyone on my flist manage to get their hands on Midway early? Anyone want to share? *waggles eyebrows*

And lastly
-If your local Dairy Queen is closed from September through May, you may live in Canada.
I can't tell you how annoying I find this one. Occasionally while at Uni, raxhel would decide she wanted ice cream, and we'd show up and it was closed, and the McDonalds blizzards just wasn't good enough for her :(

-If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don't work there, you may live in Canada.
Well, I can't say as I've been in all that many Home Depots, but this happens everywhere, doesn't it? I know I've done it....

-If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you may live in Canada.
All I can think of, is that menopause commercial :D

-If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you may live in Canada.
Ha, I remember one Christmas morning, spent at my Aunt and Uncle's house, in the middle of the turkey lunch, there was a phone call. It was a wrong number, but we spent, oh, it had to be at least 15 minutes trying to help the person get the right number. They were just going through all the MacDonald's in the phone book, the conversation involved the entire family throwing things like "Do you think they want Donnie MacDonald? You know, the one who married Angie MacPhearson? Susan's sister? No, it's probably the brother who moved to Cornwall." "Maybe it's Johnnie MacDonald's cousin, you know Johnnie that went to school with MacKenzie?" Meanwhile, my aunt on the phone telling the person on the other end, don't bother calling this number, or that one, or the one after, and skip this one too, because they're all over here right now."
Why yes, my family is Scottish, and grew up in a small community :P


-If you measure distance in hours, you may live in Canada.
I remember a cousin of mine once went and visited... some country in Europe (sorry! I don't remember which) and she was staying at someone's house while there. One day, she was like "Let's go visit this landmark!" While the friend told her that they couldn't because it was much too far away. Except, it was only like 3 hours away. How is that too far away? It's not like she's ever likely to get closer

-If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once, you may live in Canada.
Better deer than *moose*

-If you can drive 90 kms/hr through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching, you may live in Canada.
Unless it's a busy road, than some chicken-shit driver in front of you is going 40 the entire way. Bastard!

-If you install security lights on your house and garage, but leave both unlocked, you may live in Canada.
I... see nothing wrong with this. It's not like the garage even *has* a lock, but it's nice to have the light when shoveling the driveway.

-If you carry jumper cables in your car and your wife knows how to use them, you may live in Canada.
Who doesn't know how to use jumper cables? And do people seriously not keep a set in the car? Who does that? What if the battery dies?

-If you design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit, you may live in Canada.
God, *yes*. No matter what the costume. I once went dressed as someone taking a shower... in my snow suit. With a towel wrapped around me. That was a bitch of a costume, the shower part was heavy, and the curtains kept getting caught in the wind

-If the speed limit on the highway is 100km -- you're going 110 and everybody is passing you, you may live in Canada.
Ok, rule. If you're on the highway, unless there is a police cruiser beside you, or the weather is so bad you can't see, you have to go at *least* 20 over the limit. Otherwise you're just in the way.

-If you know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction, you may live in Canada.
*word*

-If you find 2 degrees "a little chilly", you may live in Canada.
2 degrees hardly counts as "chilly" If you don't have to wear a coat outside, then it's obviously not cold.
