Today I got this invitation for a new kind of party...a Canada Day party! "You're invited to Ann & Bob's super-casual Canada Day supperish-get-together Tuesday, July 1, 6:30 p.m. We'll provide hotdogs, burgers, buns, & condiments. Whatever else YOU bring is what's on the menu. So bring your favorite drink and one food item. There's always too much food, so bringing one food & drink item is plenty! See the attached invitation for info about Canada Day. If you plan to attend, RSVP so we'll have a clue how many folks to plan for. (Also helpful if you can tell me WHAT you'll bring, but that's not imperative!) Here's the Canadian National Anthem, in case we break into song! http://www.singforcanada.ca/anthem.html " So, I live in Greensboro, North Carolina, USA - not exactly what I would consider the transnational multicultural heartland of the USA. Though we keep hearing about how American cultural permeates the continent to the point the Canucks can't get a word in edgewise...perhaps for this one day, maybe Canada will usurp America in the spheres of global influence and regalia. I'm new at this, so how does this go? Shall we sing now?
