    Cheers to Celine Dion. Sure, we Quebecois and Canadiens like to make fun of her. In the past she has been kitane and ecouerant to the point of teeth pulling frustration. I was in Montreal when she had her spectacle/circus/wedding at the Basilica. That occasioned quite the debate in the church at the time. Neither partner were practicing Catholics, and the hubby was a divorced man, yet they got an expedited date at Notre-Dame. She once famously blurted "I'm not an anglophone, I'm Quebecois" (as if the two were exclusive) when she was presented with a trophy for "Best Performance in English" at the Quebec Music Awards.

    Now I find that I have to permanently shelve (most of) my ill-will and impatience with this woman. I hate it when someone surprises you after you've been confirmed in your prejudices! Hate it! Hate it!

    But now I know a little of  how it would feel if the scales ever fell from the average Right-wingnut's eyes.

    Good on you Celine - you did us proud.

    That's it for today - too tired. First day of school and all.


    Strange and beautiful are the stars tonight, that dance around your head.
