Stereotypes of Places and People

Stereotypes - because we all know so much about each other...

Canada and Canadians:
  • landscape = glaciers + snow all year round (even though we are right across the border!)
  • pet polar bears and/or beavers (Natalie's puppy is secretly a beaver... sorry to break it to you guys...)
  • transportation = Zamboni's , snowmobiles, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, skating and canoes (cars?!?! What an absurd idea!)
  • say"eh" in every sentence (That's right, eh?)
  • live in igloos (and my computer is hooked into ice cables in the snow wall....)
  • all dress like Eskimos and go ice-fishing (duh!)
  • only eat salmon and maple syrup
  • all police = Mounties 
France and the French:
  • eat baguettes and french bread everyday (Bonjour!!!)
  • all wear berets (Oui, oui!)
  • ride bicycles everywhere around the Eiffel Tower (because the entire French population lives in that area...)
  • crazy artists with curly mustaches 
U.S.A and Americans:
  • live in fast food restaurants
China and the Chinese:
  • crazy smart people who are all math geniuses (that's right!!!! >.<)
  • eat tofu all the time
  • make pottery all the time
  • squinty eyes
  • Kungfu kungfu kungfu!!!! (Jackie Chan!!! Jet Li!!!!!)
  • chopsticks for eating anything and everything (Elephant!!!!!! eat-eat-eat!!!!!)
Japan and the Japanese:
  • all people eat are sushi, teriyaki, and miso soup (after all, that's what you get in restaurants!)
  • people walk around in kimonos all day in wooden flip flop-like things
Hawaii and Hawaiians (and just about all other tropical places where people go for vacations):
  • everyone wears grass skirts and coconut tops and leis all day (jeans and t shirts are illegal)
  • everyone hula dances (don't you dare try starting a ballet trend!)
  • everyone lives in tiki huts and surf and get tanned all year long
 Australia and Australians:
  • are all native people (yeah, even though everyone knows about the Sydney Opera House)
  • live amongst snakes, kangaroos, koalas, and ostriches in the wild

We are such an educated bunch...

    Opps. . . . . Sorry

    Alright, wow, sorry I havent been on the blog in forever. . .
    it got squashed out of my mind for awhile,
    ANYWAY, glad to be back, :)
    And so yeah,
    Summer Update :
    ITS ALMOST OVER!!!!!! -makes extremely sad face- ! :( :( :( :(
    Yeah, I know, it sucks. But the way I look at it is that this school year will be the best ever for just one simple reason : No Mme Dumais. [or, as we all call her behind her back, ms.Dumbass xD] that alone should be enough to make me want to go back to school, just to know that I wont ever have to walk into that class room again :)
    But hey, I still want my summer. AND ITS GOING WAY TOO FAST!!!!!!!
    BUT on the MAJORLY BRIGHT SIDE : My life will be complete in just 3 more stinkingly long days.
    Do you know why that is?
    Guess.
    Did you guess?
    well Im thinking that only one of you has even the chance to guess it right, and that person is Amy.
    Well, did ya?
    Wait, you dont know the answer yet, so I guess you dont know. . .
    ready for it?
    Its a big one:

    MOCKINGJAY [aka, the THIRD and FINAL book of the most amazing series EVER [[aka aka THE HUNGER GAMES]] is coming out in just
    THREE
    MORE
    DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yup, its something to be excited for! My mom asked me one day, when Im going to read it. and I said : '' Mom, Ive been waiting for this book for two years. Yes, Im going to be there the day it comes out''
    Yeah, thats right TWO YEARS. thats when I read the first book. and the second came out last year in like september and left on a such a big cliff hanger, that it shouldnt even be legal. [cliff hanger is when an auther ends a book and that makes you wonder what happens next and baisically drove me crazy for the past year] Anyway, Ill cut this short: Im really excited. :D :D :D :D :D :D !!!!!!!
    Hmm what else is there. . . ? umm OH!
    Okay so last weekend, I tried waterskiing.
    it was fun, I acctually was able to stand up at some points.
    so yeah, very fun. . . .at the time.
    Not so fun the next day, as my bones were baisically killing me and I was covered in bruises.
    Haha Lesson learned.

    Anyways, Id better go, cus my posts are always too long anyway, but yeah, so I will try to come back to the blog more often from now on, :)
    BYE!!!
