I Heart Toronto

I'm baaaaack! And am ready to move to Toronto.

Why Toronto is effing awesome:


There is this amazing underground walkway called THE PATH. It connects everything, it was raining the whole time and I was able to go from my hotel to the office without actually stepping foot outside.

I will not admit how many times I got lost.

Given that it looked like this the whole time I was there, my hair looooooved THE PATH.


Equivalent to our Dunkin' Donuts. And when I say "our" I mean the United States, not Utah. Dunkin Donuts does not exist in Utah.

Effing Utah.

Mmmmmmm...FYI, don't try to ask for doughnut holes, you will be given a blank stare instead of those delicious morsels.

They are called Timbits.

Timbits Pooba, timbits!!!


We went to some amazing restaurants and they all offered these fresh squeezed juice concoctions, this one was passion fruit somethin somethin lemonade somethin. It was the prettiest drink I've ever drank!



Nuff said.


In the most pretentious restaurants.


Best candy ever.



Other interesting differences between the states and Toronto:

We eat canadian bacon, they eat back bacon

We have dinner, they have supper

American's have one dollar and two dollars, Canadians have a looney and a tooney

I would say you're in fifth grade, they would say you're in grade five.

Our check is their cheque.

I would say it's 40 degrees, they would say it's some other number converted into celsius. I don't speak celsius.

Chances are you will run into an area where they are filming a major motion picture. Of which I did, which movie it was I have no idea.

I would say, my friend lives 40 miles away, they would say, my friend lives some other number converted into kilometers away. I don't speak kilometers either.

I would say, I weigh 545 pounds, they would say, I weigh some other number converted into kilograms. Yeah, I don't speak that either.

I would say his neck looks like a vagina huh? They would say, His neck looks like a vagina eh?

Plus they are constantly saying "right?" in between their sentences. At first I started answering them, "right" I would confirm. However they would just cut me off and go on with what they were saying. After this happening over 5 thousand times, I finally figured out that they weren't really looking for a confirmation from me.

As a Canadian Girl, I have to say I loved reading this cute post, right!?! I have to say I love the USA and my trips there too, and by "there" I mean FL, eh? ;)

I have a friend who lived by me, but married a Canadian. She has made all those transitions into the "lingo" of Canada. I love her move though because she will end me packages of Cadbury chocolates all the time. That's good for my health - eh? ;)

I've only been to Montreal where they speak French which I only speak a little but it was gorgeous. And clean. and the food, the food. It was excellent, eh?

Ooh, I like this PATH thing. Very much.

Those Canadians do have good snacks...we always stock up at the gas station right before the border crossing whenever we are in BC.

I thought they said "Eh?" a lot. But I think Toronto might be different than the western part of Canada, like Vancounver, which is the only part of Canada I've been to.

Love, love, love the underground in Toronto! I haven't been there in a long, long time, but I LOVED it!

You crack me up Lil Sis!! Sounds like you're having fun though, and that makes me smile. Is your man missing you like crazy??? We have the good smarties over here too. I've never heard of the other stuff though. Hugs!

Staci said...

hilarious!! "his neck looks like a vagina eh?" i almost peed myself thanks for that.

The Green Family said...

Really...I've been thinking for the better part of 10 minutes trying to figure out why a neck would ever look like a vagina...this is causing graphic pictures in my mind...which is causing me to laugh hysterically at the man sitting next to me. Maybe his neck DOES resemble a vagina...a very distorted v-jay!

Dolly said...

I love Canada too! Since I'm from Alaska...we drove the Alcan many times. My married last name is also French Canadian and sounds like "Wah" or Raw in Canada. Very cool place:)

Okay, this officially turned into porn when the doughnuts showed up.

Yum...porn. [ahem] I mean yum...DOUGHNUTS.
