I Totally Won Radio!
So I was sitting around working yesterday while listening to the radio and they had an 'email question' in which you emailed in an answer to their question. The question in question was "if you have a tattoo, tell us why you got it".

Now I had a good answer so I sent it in. Here it is:

"I have a tattoo of a Canadian flag on my shoulder. While I was working over in Europe I may have gotten in to a weencie bit of trouble and may have had my passport taken away until I left the country (Austria). That freaked me out ... I mean someone could have mistaken me for an American! So when I finally got my passport back and got the hell out of there, I came home and tattooed the Canadian flag on my shoulder. Those Americans may fake out the Europeans with their fake Canadian passport covers and fake Canadian flags on their bags... but no one is going to tattoo the flag on their body unless they really are Canadian!"

I thought it was pretty funny my own self and I like the story because when I got kicked out of Austria I went directly to Italy for three days and that's where I met Major Man who is now my husband. (And he's American, but I digress)

Well. I won! And the read the story in an abbreviated form on the air... which was slightly embarassing to have all of my city know that I was once kicked out of a country, but oh well.

I won a $100 gift certificate to a great little Mexican restaurant in town and I was entered in a grand prize draw for a trip for 2 to Mexico. Woot!

Never mind the fact that Major Man, despite being my husband, is still going through the immigration approval process and were we to win, he could not go. Sure he could leave the country but good ol' Canada might not let him back in. But we could always hope.

PS -> Sorry for the delay in posting to the blog, I've been way sicker with this pregnancy than the last one, prompting one doctor to say "maybe you are having twins!" just before I kicked his butt most completely.

Haha, you're having a girl!! I'll put $5 on it.

Did you get my late Christmas present, BTW?

I know a great little hotel in PV (Mexico) if you need a place to stay, a couple of my friends own it - terrazainn.com
