Another World

Spent the long weekend up in Canada, swimming and eating and swimming and cooking and swimming and laughing. Watched a couple of sunrises and sunsets without singing selections from Fiddler on the Roof, which is quite the accomplishment.

We watched this political spoof show on Canadian television all about how one of the candidates for high office in this one country South of Canada went and chose a ridiculous running mate for the Fall campaign for Presidency. It was pretty far-fetched, but it made me laugh. There was also this show about a massive storm hitting that same country and it was scary in the build-up, but didn't have much of a finish. It was kind of lame, but I thought it was pretty bold to have a big-budget action flick and then no pay-off.

Canadian television is pretty great.

Pascal watched a lot of this game where folks with rackets smack a ball at each other and kids run to pick the ball up when one of them misses. It was hard to tell which kid won because the announcers only talk about the folks with rackets.

We also watched a couple of episodes of the Muppet Show. They should get Miss Piggy to be the running mate for that crazy political party. She's been to outer space too.
