Musings of a Canadian Slacker

Monday, May 19, 2003
Today is Victoria Day here in Canada. A rather strangely colonial holiday that we celebrate. Queen Victoria was, of course, the monarch when Canada became a country in 1867 and we've continued celebrating her birthday as a holiday ever since. In English parts of Canada ( I mean English-English, not English speaking), there are usually fireworks and so forth on Canada Day{oops, I meant Victoria Day}. One doesn't see that much anymore in most of the country. I spent a couple of hours at the gym then rode my bicycle around for a while. Excellent weather for it.

The news is more carnage in Israel. Dang it.
