Hmmm. The Canuck folks I am more familiar with are Tlingit, Squamish, Tsimshian, Kwakiutl, and Shuswap. What's all this Quebecois silliness?

Ah, you have been to St. Catherine's Street? To Le Super Sexe la?

Actually, as a young engineer, I was quite taken aback at the planning that went into the design of Super Sexe. A hallway ran all the way around the seating area so that bouncers could get to almost anywhere in the club unhindered, thereby attempting to enusure it's patrons were kept in line by force if necessary. As well, the only way in or out for patrons was up (or down) a stairway... an old fortress defense technique. Unless there was an emergency (fire), whence the patrons could exit through the bouncer accesses and egress to safety, although this was not common knowledge.

Oh, yeah, there were 18 stunningly beautiful naked young women there too. But the planning impressed me more. Table dances were $5 each and beers were expensive too so a young engineer bereft of financial wherewithall had to entertain himself otherwise if he couldn't get a table next to rich businessmen. >;-)

Because Eiseley is just a sheltered young thing who may not understand what a Quebecois(e) is, I'll post these lyrics:

QUEBECOIS
Tom Rowe
© 1993

My name is Levesque, I'm a son of Quebec,
I'm a farmer and a Frenchman by birth.
I am used to hard work and the sun on my neck
And I raised what I could from the earth.
But now I'm a weaver in some rich man's mill,
Making blankets to earn a week's pay;
And it's six days a week, dawn to dark, in this hell,
But I'm goin' back home come someday.

I'm Giselle Corriveau and I'm joining my beau
In the spring when the log drive is through.
He's a woodsman you know, and I do love him so,
And for him there's not much I won't do.
So I sweat all day long in this shoe factory
To put a few dollars away
To save toward a farm in our own country,
'Cause we're goin' back home come someday.

It is work, it is family, it's church, it is God,
(C'est le travail, c'est la famille, c'est l'Eglise, c'est Dieu)
It is why we came here to this land,
To make a new life and be what we are--
The proud and the strong Quebecois,
The proud and the strong Quebecois.

I'm Gerard Fournier and I cut wood all day.
In the spring I am taking a wife.
We'll go back to the land, it's our forefathers' way,
To nurture the earth is our life.
And on Saturday nights we will dance and we'll sing,
Raise a glass to our family and friends,
And it's Sunday to church and the solace it brings,
And on Monday we'll start once again.

Oh, we are the folk who quietly toil,
In this new land of hope we have found
In the woods, on the sea, in the hard, rocky soil,
In the factories that clutter the towns.
And we raised up cathedrals to the glory of God,
They were built of our blood and our tears.
And we made it through hard times and hunger and flood,
And we'll be here for thousands of years.

In fact, Amos, there is just one "k" in the entire thing, and that's in the word "sunk". If you'd like I'll post forty "k"s, though. No, you may have the honor ("honour" or maybe "honuor" or whatever if you'd in one of those places).

On we mushed, through the sloppy slush,
The dogs damned near at their end,
And we knew full well the final bell
Would soon with the Aurora blend.
Then Amos' sled, far out ahead,
Broke through the river ice
And tho' we screamed and yelled,
We couldn't help and he vanished in a trice.
"Oh, my!" Stilly said, "what a way to go!
Sunk underneath the river's ice
And tons and tons of snow."

We mourned poor Amos 'round the fire that night
And drank in a sorrowful mood,
For o'er his loss we couldn't gloss,
'Cause his sled had had all the food.
So as we munched on a crispy haunch
That had belonged to one of his dogs,
We were glad we'd found just that one hound
Washed up from the depths below.

Of course, that is only my perception of the good hearted banter and straightperson setups I have observed at times.

Someone who doesn't believe in Shatner, on the other hand, is an ashatnerist.

Eiseley,

I strongly recommend you go to your local gourmet food co-op and insist, if they do not already have it, that they special order you some Delice de Bourgogne cheese, triple cream.    If possible, enjoy it with a California old vine Zinfandel and good quality water crackers. Apple juice and store brand tortilla chips will do in a pinch.

You deserve it.

After careful consideration of all the evidence, I must admit that I have become an ashatner. No, I can no longer believe that William Shatner exists. Since I no longer believe in "him" he doesn't exist, if he ever did (he may have been the result of a stomach upset I once had).

Congratulations, Eiseley. Know that you WILL get highest marks in and on everything you deserve a break, however short it may be.

Allright, here I am. Two reasons. One, Stilly River Sage expressed concern as to whether I might or might not post here soon...and the first thing I learned as a cadet at Starfleet Academy was this: Always be attentive to women!

Second reason. I really must ask you people to stop bombarding me with pleadings emails, snail mail, facebook messages, hurled notes tied to bricks, and other such frantic missives. I am not going to promise that I will post the 40,000th post on this thread.

Why would I make such a promise? And if I did make it, how could I guarantee to keep it? It's quite apparent to me that there are a few individuals here...at least 2 or 3 of them...who are hellbent on posting the 40,000th post on this thread to prove to themselves...against all evidence to the contrary...that they have a life...and that their presence here is of considerable importance. They are already jockeying amongst themselves like men aiming to make off with the same lovely damsel, intent on snaring the 40,000th post and snatching it out from under the very noses of their comrades.

It's droll. I used to watch Klingons engage in such puerile competitions, only those usually ended in blood and severing of numerous body parts.

Why would I devote any of my own time to competing with these sorry little people? What would it gain me? Nothing.

So don't bet on me appearing here with the 40,000th post. Not too likely. Not unless you like betting against really long odds...and you feel lucky. ;-)
