Hello fellow Canadians!!!
I'm from Montréal

CelineChic your list was very funny!!

* The most exciting thing about the South Shore is that you can turn right on a red.
* You know that the West Island is not a separate geographical formation.
* You refer to Tremblant as "up North."
* You know how to pronounce Pie IX.
* You remember where you were during the Ice Storm (hahaha oh yes i Do!)
* You find it amusing when people from outside Quebec compliment you on how good your English is.
* You think of Old Montreal as nothing but a bunch of over-priced restaurants, old buildings and badly paved streets.
* You don't find it weird that there's a strip club on every corner downtown.
* You can have a perfectly coherent conversation in two languages, and not even realize it.

hee heee

I called my fingerprints all night
But they don't seem to care
The last time that I saw them
They were leafing through your hair

Another one from Toronto...well..uptown..more like the 905 area

Maybe we can start a "You know you're from Toronto when you..."

You Know You're From Toronto When...A really great parking spot can move you to tears.

You can recommend about 3 good body piercing parlours.

You make well over $100,000 and you still can't find a nice place to live.

You realize there are far more rainbow flags in the city than Canadian Flags.

When the temperature rises above zero degrees, you yell "Woohooo! Patio weather!"

You enjoy watching channel 47 multicultural TV

You're guaranteed to know at least one person on every episode of Speaker's Corner.

You haven't been to the CN Tower since you were six, but still have nightmares about that damn turbo elevator.

You've had at least 3 bicycles stolen in the past 10 years.

You've partied with at least one of the members of The Kids in the Hall

You've fantasized about having sex in Casa Loma

At least 3 of your friends have moved to Vancouver

You turn your nose up at any establishment frequented by the S&M crowd. (Scarborough and Mississauga)

You never, never, never swim in the lake

You know "The Beaches" are really called "The Beach", but still say "The Beaches" just to annoy all the nitwits who live there

You ever had a birthday party at the Organ Grinder or The Mad Hatter

You can say "world's tallest freestanding structure" ten times fast

You know the correct answer to "Where do shopping carts go to die?" is "The Don River"

You speak better Chinese than French

The word "cabbagetown" doesn't strike you as particularily amusing

Castle Frank subway station remains one of the great mysteries of the universe for you.

You know what the bathrooms in the First Canadian Place are REALLY for

You don't know where Fort York is, but have a vague recollection of being there in a past life

You know the Demic's song "I Wanna Go To New York City" was intended as sarcasm, not a weekend getaway suggestion

You know where to find Dim Sum, Sushi, Curry, Pad Thai and a dildo at 3 am on a weeknight

For the last time, it's pronounced 'TRONNA'!

You consider eye contact a sign of hostility and an invasion of your privacy.

It takes you half an hour to get to work by TTC and you are the envy of all your friends.

You mourned the death of the Spadina Bus.

You know someone who went to high school with at least one member of The Barenaked Ladies or RUSH

You laugh heartily at people who refer to highway four hundred and one.

You've taken the vomit comit.

You can manuver your bike across Queen st. without getting caught in the streetcar tracks.

You know the difference between souvlaki, moussaka and spanakoptia.

You can name at least three locations of The Beer Store that are open till 11 PM.

You have NEVER been to the Hard Rock Cafe

You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from Toronto.


I thought torontonians say "terondo" rather than "to-ron-to"?

gsquared that's GREAT

a lot of those were really funny!!

I say "tronnOH", I don't really hear "tronnAH" too much...But if you hear someone who doesn't recognize that the second T is silent, you KNOW they're a tourist.

Yeah we definitely say "Ta-raw-no".

Thanks for those lists, some of them are so spectacularly spot-on.

Is anyone here interested in making clothes, textile crafts? And also planning to go to school to study these?
Or most of you ...just into shopping/models/etc??

I'll be visiting Vancouver in spring and I would like to know where are the best places to get magazines? I have only a few magazines available in my country so I'm hoping to get more there. Also are there any shops with old magazines? Or is it just my wishful thinking?
