Today is Drowsey Monkey's one-year blogaversary. YES SIREEEBOB!

That wacky Canuck ["The term Canuck is first recorded about 1835 as an Americanism, originally referring specifically to a French Canadian. This was probably the original meaning, though in Canada and other countries, "Canuck" refers to any Canadian." ]has been polluting, achem... I mean gracing our world with her wacky humourous {see I can write Canadian...see see Americans are too bilingual!} stories of her car breaking down, almost killing her mother on her paper route or her spiteful cats for ONE GLORIOUS YEAR.

WOW I didn't know that about the term Canuck...yet again proving you really live in the 51st State...HAHAHAHAHA!

OH yeah...back to honouring {there's me writing Canadian again} Drowsey...
If you're lucky you can tune to her blog and hear her sultry voice as a talking flower. But watch out for those penguins on crack she has going on the right side of her blog.

All ribbing aside, congratulations on running such a fun and successful blog. I love reading your stories every day and would be going through serious withdrawal without it each day.

Please join me in a big hearty congratulations by visiting her blog today and telling her yourself.

Wow :) Thank you so much. I'm so surprised by all of this! lol

I do appreciating you speaking in my language tho...makes it so much easier to understand! LOL

I bet it's difficult to speak Canadian. Did it take long to learn?

Drowsey certainly is a great lady with a great blog!

Lauren said...

Drowsey, Well I am a firm believer that when you visit another country or go to live there you do your best to speak the native tongue.

Babs, It did take some effort and I think I have gotten rid of most of the lisp. It was a bit harder than learning British, but I studied often in the loo.

It is a Drowseypaloouza. In honour of her, I have been throwing random extra "U"s in most of my wourds.

I wish I was bilingual like Lauren.

I tried to learn Canadian, but I got lost somewhere between loonies and toonies.

Hey, how come they didn't sneak extra "U"s in them?

Karyne, I didn't know that either. Wikipedia, is super cool. Thanks for the 411 on the IE thing. I thought it was my old computer and kept shutting down and rebooting. ARRRRR!
