As Canada Days go, this one hasn't been anything special so far. The usual hustle and bustle of everyone trying to have everything done early so they can enjoy the evening.
Well, this year I said Fuck It. I'm not going downtown to crowd myself in amongst the masses and then fight for 45 minutes just to get home. I'm going to a secluded vantage point, where the Family and I can witness the fireworks in relative comfort. (I say relative only because real comfort would be watching them on HDTV.)
So Happy Birthday, Canada - I'm going to enjoy it.
