Much Ado About Nothing! eh!

This is place to talk about...well nothing really!

It might be somewhere that you want to put a funny story or talk about the culinary delights of your country or state. Perhaps it is a place to discuss the linguistic differences between us eh, or about the family holiday. Maybe just maybe we will come here when we feel guilty about hijacking someone's thread and talking about...nothing!

Most of all I think it will be a place to come to escape the reality in which we all live and that can't be a bad thing eh.

Thanks guys......and recognition must be made to Farmwife for both the idea and the title!

Dusty.

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! (Imagen tears running down my face as I accept this major award)

First I would like to thank my parents for teaching my that windmills are the source of all our wind.

I would also like to thank my hair stylist when I was 13 for dying my hair purple and lying that it was red. I was teased for weeks.

But most of all, to my dear husband for telling me beavers only kill people at night!

@marjaw...We use the term bubbler too! I just googled it and aside from some weird ass places in the US, just joking! (or amI) Oz is the only other place that uses the word. How weird is that!

Thank god for this thread or I would never have never known! It has paid for itself already!

That is too funny... you (meaning both Dusty and marjaw) really do say 'bubbler' ?!?!?

So, let's see... if we mix a Canadian with an Aussie/Wisconsonite with a midwest farmer's wife and throw in a bit of Brit asking for a drink of water... we'd have

Hey y'all, I'm dang parched here, if anyone's seen a blimey bubbler give me a hoy, eh?

HEY! But my barn proof had a picture of cute little O in it! And I'll have you know those dilapidated old barns are still standing...right through the supposed Tornado...good thing O wasn't standing in front of them or she would be in Canada by now eh.

And seriously?! Not much happening in your parts for an article that long to be written about darn bubblers and the quality of the drinking water...ratepayers=taxpayers I assume.

In case your wondering in the city if you find a bubble and it actually works you don't drink from it...never know who used it as a toilet!

And just to take the wind out of Farmwife's sails... yes I know you don't have bubblers in the country but life is so clean and pure and natural that if you get thirsty you can just take a drink from the creek (pronounced crick) while you are catching tadpoles...

And speaking of using a toilet...I was in a drug store today with O and that girl had to go. She asked the clerk if she could use the rest room. He said no employees only...do I need to paint a picture of mamma bear racing down the aisle to kick clerks ass? Needless to say she got to use their bathroom. Don't mess with a Crohns mom...we know the bathroom laws!!!!!

So not true crohnsinct! Yup, we drink out of the crick but sometimes we head to the big smoke (town of about 2,000) and they is pretty darn sophisticated there cos they have a bubbler in the park where we skin our rabbits and catch yabbies, then we throw them on that outdoor cooking stove, I think they call it a BBQ!

OK, from a former Bostonian (lived in Los Angeles and now in Midwest) I have chuckled to myself in the city vs country exchanges (Thanks, Farmwife, CrohnsinCt and DustyKat for the entertainment). Find myself true to my roots, mostly a city girl at heart (surrounded by country boys, husband and kids)... Here is how ya tawk baustin.. just rememba if it ends in a "r", drop the "r" and if it ends in a "a" add an "r" so...car =cah and tuna fish is tuner fish.
http://www.citydictionary.com/MA/Boston/9566/?sort=0

BTW, Boston also refers to a water fountain as a "bubblah"

Love Canadians, used to go up to Montreal to watch the Bruins and Canadians play. Montreal is such an awesome city.

Still can not get used to some Midwest expressions, Why do they say your need to put that "up" whan they mean put that away and away may be down?

Hubby said one time that he would like to live somewhere rural... my response.."I can hear cow moos from our back deck....we are NOT gettin more rural than this"
