*warning - this post is filled with generalizations*

i freaking hate gatineau. parts of my job bring me out there and everytime i do go it's horrible. i'll pop into the grocery store and get horrible customer service. i'll let someone in at the busy parking lot and three other cars butt in as well (without a thank you). the produce sucks at the grocery store, you can't return items at the winners there that you bought in ontario, and it seems like an awful lot of pregnant women smoke there. oh, and have mentioned the glass slippers? not once, but TWICE i have been at the grocery store there and seen women wearing these glass slippers that are favoured by those who remove their clothes for a living. seriously. to the grocery store. not to mention there is snow and ice on the ground. a snowy day in gatineau does not call for stripper shoes.

one redeming factor about gatineau? a 24 of india pale ale for $27. now that's alright.

at the grocery store, huh? maybe business is good in the produce aisle?

Maybe you should wear YOUR fancy-schmancy shoes to Gatineau and show them who's boss? Or borrow your boss's shoes...?! ;-)

Gee, it's a good thing those Gatineau people can't read or you'd be in big trouble dissing them like this. Er... what I meant to say was...I assume you don't have a lot of readers from Gatineau or you'd be in big trouble dissing them like this. No, really, some of my best friends are from Gatineau..actually I only really know one person from Gatineau and she's more of a co-worker than a friend and she can totally read..smart as a whip...

kia - hey, thanks for stopping by!

"anonymous" - only if i can borrow the rabbit fur jacket to match them!

xup - i never said gatineau-ites weren't smart - just on the rude side and with questionable fashion senses....

I've just downloaded iStripper, and now I can watch the sexiest virtual strippers strip-teasing on my desktop.
