"mamine" is Latvian for mother. :) I probably don't spell it properly, as I am not fluent in Latvian, but it's my mother's heritage and I feel close to it.

I love my country! I don't really pay too much attention, to politics, so I can't give you an accurate account on that front, but I am proud to be Canadian. :)

i have to be honest, my experience with canadians thru work made me hella prejudice on the topic of canada but u have single handedly shown me the error of my ways. u rock and stuff.


this may sound odd but i no longer believe this country can recover from Bush. call me a pessimist but the place that i was taught this is supposed to be seems to have died and i have no hope of its resurrection. so that is right, i am thinking of moving out of the country, at least for a while, so i was thinking canada. it is probably always cold there, eh? (see, i am practicing! lol)

I'm not sure what kind of work you did. I'm rather anti-american in general, but I don't hold that against my american friends. (I hope that makes sense.)
It doesn't really sound that odd. A lot of drastic changes were made, with the patriot act and all. I think society has moved into an era of fear, and it will be incredibly difficult if not impossible to recover from as a nation/society. It's affecting us up here too, because of border security and such.
It's not always cold here, unless you live in northern Canada. It gets to be above 80 in the summers. We have four seasons, but they have been wonky lately, due to global warming or planetary shift or whatever reason.
It would be cool if you lived here. I don't know anything about immigration or visas though. I know to move to the US, you have to already have a job, which I think is crazy because of how hard it is to find work in a city you live in, let alone one in another country. I have no idea if we have similar rules or anything.
There are differences between our two countries, but they are pretty subtle as far as culture goes.

i worked in customer service. the biggest problem i ran across was being talked to like i was an idiot or quirky phrases that drove me insane. like being told that a vending machine stole someone's money, cause i always got this vision of a vending machine holding a gun on someone.

i can't imagine canada would be too keen on someone who is on disability and whatnot...i will have to look into it.

moxy fruvous is a canadian group and they rule, well those two songs of their's i know rule

Yeah. If you are on disability in the states, it won't carry over here. It doesn't even carry over between provinces up here, which sucks.
Vending machines tend to do that a lot. I don't trust them.
We actually have a lot of pretty well-known Canadian musicians: Barenaked Ladies and Alanis Morrisette being the top two that I know of, but there are many more.
