SMELLS

Canadian Christmas Candy 🍁🍬

The reigning queen of a certain galactic alliance in my universe, known only as Her Majesty, has retired to her royal winter storage quarters. She shall remain there for as long as outside temperatures are low enough to cause body parts to shrivel and bong water to freeze. Behold, a photographic portrait of Her Majesty, vested in her royal bubblewrap winter gown…

Her royal bowl is bubblewrapped separately.

I do not smoke at all during the three months out the year that Her Majesty is in recess. The lungs definitely appreciate having the time off. So this would be edible season for me. One of the great things about living in a country where legal cannabis shops are almost as common as liquor stores is that holiday-themed edibles are an actual thing. Like eggnog-flavoured chocolate…

I also got this candy cane-tinged number…

Mmm…sprinkles!

TASTE

Happy (Canadian) #Thanksgiving 🍗🧅🍠🍷🍁

What’s not to love about a holiday that’s all about stuffing your face? And maybe getting together with family. But mostly about the stuffing your face part. It’s not like (the average person) never sees their family any other day of the year.


The Soundtrack of SILVER BROWN

True Patriot Love

A hip hop artist from Nova Scotia once used a leitmotif taken directly from our national anthem as a sample in one of his jams. Nobody got their knickers in a knot over it. Because this is Canada.

This collage I spent all of Father’s Day creating is highly unlikely to provoke homicidal rage in any of my country(wo)men, especially since I made a deliberate point of omitting all politicians.
