Thanks for the shout out! Just a minor point: it's not actually "Victoria Day" here in Canada yet - that happens on Monday. For the enjoyment of anyone not in Canada, Queen Victoria's birthday is the 24th of May and we celebrate it on the closest Monday before (or on) that date. It's always the weekend before the Memorial Day weekend in the States. Also, a lot of Canadians call it the "May Two-Four" weekend, which is a double-entendre: it's the first unofficial weekend of summer as many of us get out of the cities to go camping and open our cottages etc. and we like to bring with us cases of pop or other beverages that have 24 cans in them (which we call "two-fours" up here); and of course it's the "two-four"th of May.
Sorry I had to repost this; I didn't really agree with exactly where it was "edited" the last time. I've removed the "offending" word (at least I think I have, because the part about "camping" was also snipped!) so hopefully it will stick around a little longer this time. As it stood, it didn't really make sense.
....and now, of course, the part about it being "tomorrow" doesn't make sense. *sigh*
Victoria Day is, in fact, TODAY. The rest is still accurate.
