so today was canada day. and what a wonderful country it is.
i think pride in one's home is a beautiful and wonderous thing. nationalism, however, is stupid. there's a difference =)
so we were out celebrating being canadian (starting the night before ;) and had a LOT of fun. party, party, hack, party, hack, party party. i ended up at a house of cool geeks. which is to say, there is a certain trend here for the underground cool to proclaim to be geeks. one of the hotter girls was wearing a shirt that said, "i *heart* nerds". and she meant it. i didn't unsheath my own geekhood as that would've been just too odd.
but the music was great, the weather even better. only the fireworks sucked (alberta doesn't seem to understand how fireworks shows are supposed to start).
oh, and we found the first hot dog vendor to offer veggie dogs on the street in calgary! woo hoo! mahlah and i each got one and thanked him for offering something for the rest of us. he said he was just ahead of the curve and others would be following. yes, the vegetarians will inherit the downtown core! ;)
