    It would be great to meet fellow Canadians, but I'm sure I'll soldier on. I'm excited to meet all of you.

    And yes, I do say 'eh', but not at the end of ALL of my sentances, Amanda. You're making me sound like a real hoser, eh? Besides, you know who Ian Hanomansing is and that's gotta make you at least 1/4 Canadian.

    So many regional accents in one spot. I can't wait.
    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.

    I found all these things at smilie central that are Canadian things to say. I am finding out more and more the longer I live here. Also makes good test of Canadianism.

    I need to cut corners
    I will get there by hook or by crook
    Gooned outta your tree (gourd)
    No skin off my nose
    Keep it under you hat
    Lend me your ear
    Don't look down your nose at me.

    My husband looks weird at me sometimes and I don't know why... now he shakes his head and says "It must be a Canadian thing."
    Is probably over in the transcribing thread for Big Brother til death do us part.

    I'm an American and I grew up with all but 'gooned outta your tree'. Hell, I still use all of them.
    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    Down here in Texas, we use 'no skin off my nose" and "I need to cut corners".

    Does anyone else remember the 'weird regional sayings" thread? Maybe it's time to revive it.
    Anyway, only three more weeks! * puts on weird sunglasses and funny hat*

    Corine - I'm sure there will be lots of pictures posted (as long as the picture-takees give their consent ) as well as updates along the way. Same as last year
