Canada
I'm moving to Canada.

I was talking to an LJ buddy this morning over IM and she mentioned in passing that she had seen a snake once. ONCE. ONE TIME IN HER ENTIRE LIFE. A garden snake on Vancouver Island. She's in Montreal now. I am so moving to Canada.

I hope Seth doesn't mind... I wonder what the cost of real estate is up there. I wonder how hard it would be for Seth to transfer his license to Canada. Pharmacist's license, I mean, not driver's license.

Oh yeah. Moving to Canada.

Current Mood: cheerful cheerful

Re:

I'm not actually really snake phobic. But apparently Canada doesn't have a lot of creepy crawlies, being that it's pretty cold up there.

We are in love with Toronto. Love it. They have great kosher restaurants and socialized medicine. Housing is VERY VERY expensive there, especially the Jewish areas. We once considered moving there but realized that would be silly, we are Americans. Canada is cool, but America is better. Besides, my friends are having problems with their kids and the torah schools up there...also rampant anti-semitism and a government that turns a blind eye to terrorism. We do love it so we visit often :)

Re:

Darnit. So no Canada for me, huh? Sigh. Scotland it is!

Re:

Um, if avoiding anti-Semitism is your goal, Scotland is sadly out, too. George Galloway, Proud Friend of Saddam and Yasser and Hater of Israel (and thrown out of the Labour Party for taking money from Saddam and calling on British troops to commit treason during the Iraq war), is the MP from Glasgow.

I found a snake under my bed once when I was about 14 or 15. The cat killed it and left it there (along with a pile of other things it presumably decided to eat later - bunnies and birds and such).

I watched it kill a 4' brown snake once. Stomped on its head, bit it on the neck, pulled back, and did it again a couple of times.

I have come within a couple of inches of treading on snakes a few times (seeing a snake rear up at you is pretty exciting). But this was all when I was growing up - I haven't seen one in Sydney.

Plenty of blue-tongue lizards, lots of big fat skinks, but no snakes. No goannas, either, come to think of it.
