Last night I was invited to celebrate the National Film Board of Canada's (NFB) 70th anniversary shindig being hosted by the NFB, The Consul General of Canada in Los Angeles, Canadians Abroad, and the Canadian California Business Council in Los Angeles. That's a whole lotta Canadian goin' on.

I was actually excited to do something Canadian. The last Canadian thing I did in LA was attend an LA Kings vs. Toronto Maple Leafs hockey game (we won), so I was due for another Canadian celebration. Further, all anyone is talking about down here right now is the upcoming American Thanksgiving. It makes me feel all alone. This is not my holiday. I already had my Thanksgiving, when it's supposed to be, in October. All my friends in Los Angeles are returning to their hometowns this week to spend time with their families. I will be the only person left in LA holding down the fort. I figured that, while I had the chance, I had better jump on the opportunity to go and party with Canadians and, specifically, the Consul General of Canada. Surely, a wild bunch, no?
