TO MY CANADIAN PEEPS
If you can, go watch WolfCop. It is excellent. It may appear to be a cheesy mock-horror/comedy flick - but it is so much more than that.
THERE’S GONNA BE A CORNER GAS MOVIE
Trying To Grow - The SheepdogsPlayed 10 times.

You know, sometimes Canadian commercials aren’t that bad. This is not one of them.
So apparently Channing Tatum might be in Regina, Sask.? It’s about 2 1/2 hours from where I am right now.
But as far as I can tell, it’s all rumour.
It would be so hilarious if an entire province was talking about a celebrity and he wasn’t even there.
The newspaper I’m working at has been around since 1884. Today my editor handed me a copy of the first issues that were printed.
On the back side there was a section called “Courting in Church.” Some of the print had rubbed off over the years so I’m not quite able to make some of the words out. But what I can is fantastic.
A young gentleman happening to sit at church in a pew adjourning one in which there was a young lady for whom he conceived a sudden and violent passion, felt desirous of entering into a courtship on the spot, but the place not suiting a formal …
And there’s a few lines that’s rubbed away but from what I can make of it, this guy essentially marked a certain passage in a bible and got the person sitting between them to pass the bible to the girl.
I’m not sure exactly which passage it is but it says,
"And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but which we had from the beginning, that we love one another." She returned it with the following — second chapter of Ruth, 10th verse. "then she fell on her face and bowed herself to the ground and said unto him. Why have I found grace in thine eyes, and thou shouldst take knowledge of me, seeing me a stranger?” He returned the book pointing to the second epistle of St. John: “Having many things to write unto you, I could not with pen and ink, but I trust to come unto you and speak face to face.” From the above interview the marriage took place the following week.
So basically these two flirted with each other using bible verses and then got married the next week.
I was finally able to upload my dragonfly photo!
These are some photos I took today! I also took one of a dragonfly which is pretty neat but it won’t upload here with the rest of them.

There’s also a few more photos there.
Omg I only got four hours of sleep last night.
My mind is buzzing and I can’t comprehend anything.
I’ve done school and work on only four hours of sleep but it seriously feels way different.
Also saw the Trews last night. They were lovely as alway. The drunk people not so much.
I fear that they won’t come back to Saskatchewan because this was a crowd that barely even responded to Colin when he called out about Canada Day and being in Regina.
Like seriously people. I wonder what it’s like to be in a place with people that care about Canada Day.
