I’m not really in America!!!

I don’t know any Republicans! In fact, I don’t even think i know any conservatives of any sort.

In fact, when I was thinking about it, all American people I’ve met here are practically Canadian. I say practically because even though these practical-Canadians will agree with us on issues like healthcare or whatnot, they’re a bit … I dunno, jumpy? Not sure if that’s the right word, but yes, there’s definitely something different about Americans. In other words, I frequently feel slightly foreign. I dunno. Maybe I’m just not used to seeing the ocean every day yet. She sparkles.

Anyway, going back to the republican thing … I think this is just a reflection of the fact I’m here in SF, which is practically Portland, which is practically Canada.

So yeah, next time you watch US news or read a US paper and some talking head starts going on about “two americas” or something like that, it’s true! It’s very easy to live a life here surrounded by people exactly like you.
