I just thought since you guys still have the Union Jack on your flag then there must be a lot of Ozzies who still feel a strong bond with the motherland. Thought maybe you'd like to be called a British Australian? Or maybe not...

Funny old thing that, the flag. Some people want it to remain, while others would like the Aborigine version. I on the other hand, think, remove the British part, and have the Southern Cross. We are all different.

I would never call myself a British/Australian, even though I have a British passport, as I am a first generation Australian. The majority of people I grew up with were first generation Australians. Proud of our heritage but we are Australians. Recently, whilst travelling, I met some younger first generations and they would call themselves Turkish/Australian or Lebanese/Australian. I found that weird, because I believe, where we are born, is what we are. Surely you have run into this when you have been in the States, all the "Irish" who come running up to you !!! I was with a Dubliner in Iran, and he said he got sick of hearing, "I'm Irish 12 generations removed !!!" Then agin, whilst in Namibia, getting pissed with an Irishman from the North, and one from the South, when asked where they were from, the Southener said, "We are all Irish", the Northener was not impressed !!! Oh well, we all can't be perfect

So, I will stand by what I said in previous posts, when a French speaking Canadian states that he is French canadian, I will introduce myself as an Australian/Australian

Ah - how did I miss this thread?

You can't forget the "french" Canadians from Saskatchewan and New Brunswick! Now THOSE accents will mess with your head!! Saskatchewan in particular - one thinks of it as being so anglophone, and then you meant a francophone from Saskatchewan....it'll throw you off, I tell ya! Especially if they're speaking French and you can't quite place the accent.

Yeah - everyone looks at me funny when I don't self-identify as a different "type" of Canadian - as in what is your heritage? Well, I don't know! My family has been here as long as we have records.....although most of my friends self-identify as "German Canadian" or "Lebanese Canadian".....even if they're third or fourth generation Canadian!

One thing about those French Canadian women--they know how to dress.

My best friend was born into a large French Canadian family in Saskatchewan. She's a petite, very feminine and flirty redhead who speaks both languages flawlessly without any accent.

I've never seen her looking like anything less than well dressed, even in a pair of jeans and a shirt, because she has a flair about her and carries herself so well.

Actually, there are times I hate her! devil.png

Hey, someone deleted the post I replied to. I wasn't actually replying to the bacon post (which seems very reasonable to me). There was some weirdo on talking about some crazy stuff. He claimed he was a Canuck, but I find that hard to believe 'cos he seemed like a dick to me.

Gotta agree with the moderator on that one! haha. read the post, totally out of line. smile.gif

But the bacon thing...yeah - not quite sure what's up with that. And we're adding new types of bacon all the time - pealmeal bacon (is that what it's called), fancy types of bacon, soy bacon, but it's everywhere!

I'm just surprised that Tim Horton's doesn't have a bacon ranch bagel or something. Wait, maybe there's bacon in their "everything" bagel. haha. huh.gif

Hey guys -

Sorry, that was me that deleted... it was completely disgusting and outta line... so it went... and to mention a name of a person he obviously has an issue with... tacky. He did the same thing in a few other forums too. Sorry I deleted your response... but the gross stuff was being quoted. Crazy people! wacko.gif

Jess - haha stop it - you're making me hungry!!!

Totally understandable. I just didn't want anyone to think I had a problem with bacon, because I honestly don't. I believe in equality between meats. I'd even go as far as to say bacon is one of my favourite foods, not that there's anything wrong with other meats. I have a dream that we can all live in a world where we treat all meats equally, and there are no vegetarians because I hate cooking for them.

Egg, Bacon and Cheese is possibly the greatest food combination there is. Sometimes I'd put a bit of BBQ sauce on it.

But what are you doing lashing them in a bagel? Surely a roll would be better? Or even just some white bread?

I'm so hungry now, but having a BBQ later so going to wait.
