September 25, 2007

So this is weird - did you know that Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving in the beginning of October? I had no idea until my mom told me we're going to be having Thanksgiving dinner a little early this year - in Ontario!

I don't live that far from the Canadian border, but I've been to Mexico way more times than I've ever been the Great White North. In fact, I've only ever been to Canada once when I was about 10. We drove there and only stayed for the afternoon. I don't remember much about it. Anyway, this time we're going to spend the weekend with my aunt and uncle, who just moved up there after my uncle's work transferred him.

Apparently it's only going to take us about four hours to drive to Toronto and then we'll stay there for three nights. The best part is that we don't have to go to any lame Columbus Day parades this year! I guess I should Google Toronto and see what to expect there. All I know about Canada is they're a lot like us, but really into hockey. I guess I should have paid a little more attention in geography. Or did we learn about Canada at all in geography? Wow, I really wasn't paying attention.

We only have limited time to do touristy stuff because we have the big Thanksgiving dinner to do. Have any of you been Toronto? Maybe you even live there? and let me know your recommendations for what to do! I'll let you all know how it goes!

Later,
Simon

    If you're having issues on KW then you can always report, ignore/delete, and block the person! Also let the moderators/admin know you're having issues! Same goes with most other places online.  It's also a good idea to tell an adult; you don't deserve to go through this! Whether it be a parent, a friends parent, teacher, principal, counsellor, family member, police officer, any trusted adult!  Unfortunately we here cannot stop what is going on for you, but we can remind you that you can get through this and things will get better. Keep your head up, and stand up for yourself. Take care. :)
