;______; Noooo! Get better, Ziggy! D: GET BETTTER!
I wish i had a better family story, all mine is mom and dad met and they came to canada after they got married *What an adventure!"
Hmmm.. let's see... on my mom's side of the family, my Great-Grandparents came over from Russia when they were kids, in 1899... on my dad's side I think some of my Great-Great-Grandparents came from England, Scotland, and Ireland at some point in time. So that makes me, what 4th-5th-ish generation? (I dunno, I can't count )
And since then, my family has definitely not moved around very much. The farm where my dad grew up got recognized as a 'Century Farm' or something, where it had been in the family for 100 years. My aunt and uncle and cousins live there now. As for my mom's side, the place where the Doukhabor village that all the landed Russian immigrants settled is like 5 miles from my parents' house.
As a result, I'm related to like half the town where I grew up. Well, anybody whose families have been there for a while. How's that for being a hick?
we have family all over, i have a aunt in ontario, cousin in sherwood park and millwoods, a uncle in b.c, and the rest is back in europe oh and a anti in the down under
...All you Albertans! Does the term "prairie oysters" mean anything to you? And do you know what they are? :lol:
prairie oysters, your confuzluling me shuriyu :lol:
Thanks, Palm! I'd better damn well get better quickly, cause it's summer. And it's almost my birthday. Hmph.
Shuri, that's disgusting! Yech. Prairie Oysters are a food entree consisting of... *shudder* bull testicles.
shuri please there are minors here :lol:
over here in edmonton theres a park close to my jr high called buffalo park and at the end of it theres a buffalo park and the statue shows ALL of him if you catch my drift, it's quite desterbing.
:lol: Dammit, Ziggy, I thought you were supposed to be sick! I was tryin' to see who of all of those prairie folk knew what they were.
Oops. Sorry, Shuri! I am sick, but even deathly illness cannot keep me away from Talk! Man but that sounds lame XD
Do we have any specifically West Coastern food? Salmon, I guess. Salmon's a big West Coast think. All seafood, really.
..Erm.. Nanaimo Bars? I dunno.. *goes and searches*
But Salmon, to me, falls into that catagory.
Hehe, I too knew what prairie oysters were. Yay for food that no person in their right mind should eat. They should do that on Fear Factor.
There's a town near Saskatoon that has a statue of a bull. People kept vandalizing it though, so he became a steer.
*cough* I've eaten Prairie Oysters on a dare. And I hope everyone knows what a muskeg is...
Ah, But I'm such a traitor to Alberta. Everyone is all "Eat only Alberta Beef!" And I'm like "I hate beef. I like Moose/Elk meat D:" And everyone tries to beat me with their slabs of steak...
sorry for that my leg hurts and im releasing the pain on my keybord instead of my voice , so anyway TRAITOR!!!!! :lol: jk i only have the regular burger and chiken that i get at costco but i dont eat salmon or elk or moose, i cant eat moose they're to super fly i did a report in them 3 years ago (the 5th grade)
^ See, now I would say that moose/elk meet is stereotypically Northern food, ie. Yukon/NWT/Nunavut. Growing up there it was like every single damned "heritage" day or whatever it was all moose meat stew. I like Moose, it's very good.
