Zee!

But, I don't really count. ;)


Montreal Interviewer: "What do you have in common with each other?"

Peachey: "We're REALLY weird."

Montreal Interviewer (incredulously to me): "Do you agree with that?"

<I think back to several days before the interview. Driving through the country, passing a field with cows...>

Peachey: "MOOOO! MOOOOO! Does this make me weird?"

Me: "No, well yes. Here, let me roll down the windows so they can hear you better!"

Peachey: "MOOOOO!!!!"

<back to interview>

Me: "Yes, yes I do."

OMG, I want all of the above foods!!! I said:

Zed

Zed

Coffee and a donut

I mainly say zed here in the US because it doesn't occur to me to say it any other way..... because I'm old and set in my ways. :lol: Plus it's not that big of a deal. Except I'll probably make more of an effort ever since the car salesman asked me to spell Z. :lol:

I am pretty sure I'll always say 'zed' ... it feels weird to say 'zee', just as it feels weird to spell words with just an 'o' instead of 'ou' (i.e. honour, favourite, etc).

I'm still in Canada, but I can't afford to eat out much.

And I've never had a donair, are they good?

No food - I am poisoned from Sunday's dinner. :(

:o

What happened?

And I've never had a donair, are they good?

OMG. Some of my favourite memories are of heading to the donair shop for late night munchies because it was the only place that was open. I grew up a long time ago. lol

ZEE ZEE timmies!

I love the last question, it's like a little treat to go with the poll. :D

:lol: That's so true!

I don't exactly know myself, so here's the wiki page :lol:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donair#Canada

I remember seeing a frozen kit for it at work, I'll have to try it out, cause no one in the city sells them.

Speaking of donairs, look how huge this one is!

[i think I might be responsible for bringing this debate back into the present, I didn't realize when posting that I was commenting on something a few weeks old. Sorry! Amazing site so far, I'm so glad I found it]

I also intend to continue spelling it 'cheque' in informal writing..just because we plan to/live elsewhere doesn't mean that we have to lose our Canadianisms! I've also told my fiance that I'm having a Canadian Thanksgiving dinner as well as an American one, no matter where we are!

Is it really true that you can't find decent cheese curd in the states? (I'll make my own poutine if I must..but grated cheese is where I draw the line! :ranting: )
