Behave Canada, prepping for the Royal Wedding

 

Canada’s Prime Minister, Stephen Harper and his wife, have formally RSVP’d for the wedding of the century to take place in London this spring. Prince William and Kate Middleton have seen it fit to invite Canada’s leader to this momentous occasion which includes the likes of the Queen and the Beckhams.

All we can say in Canada is: please behave, Mr. Harper. You represent us. Don’t make us not look cool in front of the Beckhams. Don’t try to impress the Brits with your rendition of the Beatles on the piano. Don’t spoil our excellent international reputation by behaving like the drunk uncle and asking the Brits why they’ve never heard of this thing called ice hockey. Please. Just polish your shoes, put on your suit and place a placid smile on your face (not the big scary one, just the small one that you reserve for special state occasions like Christmas) and be nice to everyone. Say sorry for everything- even the things that you haven’t done yet- and compliment all the ladies on their hats, even if they look like wire traps for beavers.

A royal wedding is a special occasion and there will literally be billions of people watching and rewatching it on television- most of us will be watching because we want to see Kate’s dress, of course, so dignitaries and celebrities will all be secondary. Nevertheless, it’s important that we maintain our reputation for being soft spoken, polite to a fault and slightly in awe of the country that colonized us. It’s a simple request, we hope- although it wouldn’t be the first time a simple request from the people to its government would be so hard to follow through on.

Mika Oehling’s initial blog (mission statement?): I want to use my blog as a forum for creative expression and as an outlet for creative expression that I don’t otherwise have in my life. And I’ve also decided to stop bothering friends and family alone with my rants and raves, but decided to share them with the world so that it can bother them as well.

I’ve decided to structure my blog as a series of rants and raves. There will always be one topic, but sometimes there are both opinions expressed about the exact same thing. That’s not because I’m bipolar, it’s because I’m a Libra and I tend to see both sides of every argument and can’t make up my own mind. Yes, I am that annoying person you see in the grocery store, furrowed brow, trying desperately to make sense of the different varieties of canned soup. And I never understood their crazy sodium content.
