ASCII Art from Ethan Hayes-Chute


Always a passion of mine, I would love to share
with you my own personal sub-standard ASCII art creations.
Some of these were featured in Good News Folks.

The Best Ships are Friendships


I just posted to Skye’s blog post about friends.

I’m a friend vagabond. While each relationship lasts I put a lot of myself into it. But, things change, people move and disappear from your life. I don’t spend too much time looking backwards when there are always new people and experiences ahead.

No one should feel bad about a lost friend. Instead feel good about the friends you have in the here and now. Make the best of who you know now and offer them the best you can give of yourself. You never know the impact you may have one someone else.

I haven’t put a lot of thought into having or keeping friends. I have met so many people in my life, some I do think about still and wish I knew how life turned out for them. But, I don’t seem fated to be someone who keeps any lifelong friends. I always think that is nice when I see it in movies and such. It may help that a lot of those people stay in the same place, together. I was born in Toronto and moved all over Ontario plus some time in British Columbia, the Dominican Republic and Illinois, USA. You can’t keep friendships when your life is some weird game of bumper cars.

Canada and the Rest of the World

I just started reading this in an email.

These questions about Canada were posted on an International Tourism Website and obviously the answers (jokingly) came from a fellow Canuck.
Amazing how nieve/ignorant people can be of different countries/cultures.

Q: I have never seen it warm on TV, so how do the plants grow? (UK)
A: We import all plants fully grown and then just sit around watching them die.

Q: Will I be able to see Polar Bears in the street? (USA)
A: Depends how much you’ve been drinking.

Q: I want to walk from Vancouver to Toronto – can I follow the railroad tracks? (Sweden)
A: Sure, it’s only Four thousand miles, take lots of water.

Q: Is it safe to run around in the bushes in Canada? (Sweden)
A: So its true what they say about Swedes.

Q: Are there any ATMs (cash machines) in Canada? Can you send me a list of them in Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton and Halifax? (UK) A: What did your last slave die of?

Q: Can you give me some information about hippo racing in Canada? (USA)
A: A-fri-ca is the big triangle shaped continent south of Europe. Ca-na-da is that big country to your north … oh forget it. Sure, the hippo racing is every Tuesday night in Calgary. Come naked.

Q: Which direction is north in Canada? (USA)
A: Face south and then turn 180 degrees. Contact us when you get here and
we’ll send the rest of the directions.

Q: Can I bring cutlery into Canada? (UK)
A: Why? Just use your fingers like we do.

Q: Can you send me the Vienna Boys’ Choir schedule? (USA)
A: Aus-tri-a is that quaint little country bordering Ger-man-y, which is..
oh forget it. Sure, the Vienna Boys Choir plays every Tuesday night in
Vancouver and in Calgary, straight after the hippo races. Come naked.

Q: Do you have perfume in Canada? (France)
A: No, WE don’t stink.

Q: I have developed a new product that is the fountain of youth. Can you tell me where I can sell it in Canada? (USA)
A: Anywhere significant numbers of Americans gather.

Q: Are there supermarkets in Toronto and is milk available all year round? (Germany)
A: No, we are a peaceful civilization of vegan hunter gatherers. Milk Is
illegal.

Q: Please send a list of all doctors in Canada who can dispense rattlesnake
serum. (USA)
A: All Canadian rattlesnakes are perfectly harmless, and can be safely
handled and make good pets.

Q: I have a question about a famous animal in Canada, but I forget its name.
It’s a kind of big horse with horns. (USA)
A: It’s called a Moose. They are tall and very violent eating the brains of
anyone walking close to them. You can scare them off by spraying yourself
with human urine before you go out walking.

Q: I was in Canada in 1969 on R+R, and I want to contact the girl I dated
while I was staying in Surrey, BC. Can you help? (USA)
A: Yes, and you will still have to pay her by the hour.

Q: Will I be able to speak English most places I go? (USA)
A: Yes, but you will have to learn it first.
