So You’re Canadian Huh?

“You make those waffle cones fresh eh?”

“Oh,” she shook her finger at me, “you must be Canadian huh?”

“How did you know?” Canada is awesome


“I asked, how did you know?”

“It’s the eh. You Canadians say ‘eh’ when you talk huh?”

“Oh I thought that you were going to say that my awesome was showing.”

I am very proud to be Canadian; land of flowing maple syrup, milk in bags, beautifully crafted igloos, and cops who ride ponies. Our pride can be found on patches sewn on backpacks, bumper stickers, bottles of beer, tattoos of maple leafs, and on Jerseys of hockey teams who win gold medals.

On July 1st, Canadians with glowing hearts, celebrate the true north strong and free. We call it Canada Is-More-Awesome-Than-Any-Other-Country Day.

The “Is More Awesome Than Any Other Country” is silent because we don’t like to brag.


We celebrated pre-Canada Day parades (because someone forgot the memo to make July 1st land on a weekend day and not on a weekday).


And the season’s last  South Canadians Timbits game.


And a road trip to the cottage and an obscene amount of fireworks.

As you can tell by the spectators faces, the fireworks were epic

After that busy day, it was nice to be able to unwind. That might be difficult when you have kids hopped up on sugar and fun, so for July, Netflix has added a little Canadiana for the kids. All of the shows this month were either filmed in Canada, take place in Canada, or were created here.

Check out these new additions:



  1. Are You Afraid of the Dark?
  2. Johnny Test
  3. Black Hole High
  4. Alpha and Omega
  5. Goosebumps
  6. Erky Perky
  7. Eliot Kid
  8. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days

And for the wee ones:



  1. Caillou
  2. Franny’s Feet
  3. The Busy World of Richard Scarry
  4. Super Why!
  5. Animal Mechanicals
  6. Monster Math Squad
  7. Team Umizoomi
  8. Thomas and the Magic Railroad

However you celebrate Canada Day, it is best spent with the ones you love.

The Awesome Ones.

      @Eva Gallant, It was. We hope to go back sometime in August!

  1. LOVE Canadians!

    When we used to see them (DUDES) in Duluth w/ their cool hair and “Eh, Accents,” we’d go a little wild in the clubs.

    KISSSSSSS from Duluth. xx

      @My Inner Chick, Eh floated your boat eh?
      That cracks me up.
      Was it helmet head?

  2. You’re the ones responsible for Calliou?????

    • Kimberly Kimberly

      @Charity, It could have been made here…not sure…Beiber.

  3. Wait, Are You Afraid of the Dark? is secretly Canadian? HOW DO YOU SECRETLY INFILTRATE EVERYTHING?

  4. Kim – If you dedicate all of your netflix streamteam posts to Orange is the New Black, I won’t mind. It’s the best show ever. I actually just bought new black plastic glasses that I randomly wear on my head because I have to look like Alex. (even though I’m really Nicky…)

    • Kimberly Kimberly

      @Lyla, I love her glasses. If I could rock them bitches I’d wear them…even though I don’t need help seeing. God they better hurry up and do season 3!!!

  5. Eh, you’re awesome, yo.

  6. My step father took me on a self devised Outward Bound trip to Northern British Columbia many years ago in a different reality of my life when I was young. We arrived at Vancouver Island for a stay over to go deep sea fishing. I befriended one of the boat tenders from Ucluelet who was my age. I always said “eh”. I mimicked that to my step father the entire summer LOL! What a great Canada Day the pictures of that handsome young man of yours smiling never gets old, Kimberly! 🙂

  7. I had no idea my kid liked Canadian movies/TV shows so much.
