More Peppers and an Apology!

So the Peppermaster(R) basically completed the new table top sauces today... I can't wait until he says "GO!" I've got a country worth of tables to rid of "T" sauce!

I've gotta tell you, working for BPFI is a marketing specialist's dream come true. I can't believe I wasted all those years in financial services! Ok... I know they weren't wasted, but hell, hot sauce is a lot more fun than mutual funds and financial planning!

I had to switch back to the Peppermaster's Cajun for lunch today. I'd been sucking on Kato's Crawfish Festival sauce for the past couple of weeks and it's gone. So when I found myself with a cheese sandwich for lunch, I actually felt at a loss... Sigh. It's not that Kato's is anywhere near as hot, so don't get me wrong, I love them both, but Peppermaster's is just that much more expensive, sigh.

Oh... the apology... Here's where I deftly change the subject.

I finally got tired of how slow my computer has been and couldn't find a backup utility on my comp to save my life... OMG, I used to back up once a week before the fire. Here I've been relying on the restore function... How sad is that? Anyway, without a backup, I started moving everything to the LaCie. Amazingly, having taken all that STUFF off my hard drive, it suddenly has room to spin... And it's working again... Whoopeee! I didn't have to format.

What I did have to do though was FILING. I HATE FILING! I REALLY REALLY REALLY HATE FILING. No, I do, it's not just dislike, it's hate. It is too! Anyway, it's done now.

I've defragged, created a restore point, and now I've got a nice clean smoothly spinning hard drive... Which is really cool, and makes me giggle again especially since Violated is over there formatting her hard drive once again. hehehe. <-- Ok, I know, that was a maniacal cackle, but I can't help it, because every time I've had to format, it's been out of absolute necessity... Violated does it in lieu of squishing a stress ball for Dog's sake!! Except this time... her font obsession got her... but nevermind that's hers to tell.

So, guess what I found while I was doing the filing... I found a Canuck's apology to the US.

I didn't write it. But, I could have. I haven't the slightest clue who did. But after Jon Stewart being quoted today on FTS' blog... The spiteful one of my multiple personalities felt I absolutely had to post it. hehehe

Jon's quote? " I've been to Canada, and I've always gotten the impression that I could take the country over in about two days."

So... here it is; the Apology. Jon Stewart and FTS... This is for you guys:

On behalf of Canadians everywhere I'd like to offer an apology to the United States of America. We haven't been getting along very well recently and for that, I am truly sorry.

I'm sorry we called George Bush a moron. He is a moron but, it wasn't nice of us to point it out. If it's any consolation, the fact that he's a moron shouldn't reflect poorly on the people of America. After all it's not like you actually elected him.

I'm sorry about our softwood lumber. Just because we have more trees than you doesn't give us the right to sell you lumber that's cheaper and better than your own.

I'm sorry we beat you in Olympic hockey. In our defense I guess our excuse would be that our team was much, much, much, much better than yours. I'm sorry we burnt down your white house during the war of 1812. I notice you've rebuilt it! It's Very Nice.

I'm sorry about your beer. I know we had nothing to do with your beer but, we Feel your Pain.

I'm sorry about our waffling on Iraq. I mean, when you're going up against a crazed dictator, you wanna have your friends by your side. I realize it took more than two years before you guys pitched in against Hitler, but that was different. Everyone knew he had weapons.

And finally on behalf of all Canadians, I'm sorry that we're constantly apologizing for things in a passive-aggressive way which is really a thinly veiled criticism. I sincerely hope that you're not upset over this. We've seen what you do to countries you get upset with.

Thank you.

Me out.

You realize, of course, that those quotes are random. All I do is insert the code and it gets a new feed each day. I never know what's going to appear. ;-)
