The Nitty Gritty

But more than all of those I am an entertainer. I carry around a ukulele with me for the same reason a gangster carries a gun; better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it. Stage or sidewalk, Your Pal Pete shows are just where they happen.
Currently, I'm working on a musical, RagnaPOP(or she's got the bomb), set to premiere at this year's Capital Fringe Festival. I'm also working on music, comedy, and musical comedy; for kids and/or adults.
The fruit of these projects will be available on this site, so check back regularly!

Back in the U.S.A. or my last Canada list.

Canadian things I love:
1. Poutine- I don't know if you're familiar with this delicacy: French fries topped with Gravy and Cheese curds. I don't expect anyone to share my excitement, since I've lost a lot of people to just Gravy Fries. You can get it topped with just about everything short of a marachino cherry, but plain Poutine is fantastic enough.
2. Tim Horton's- Kind of a high post Dunkin Donuts, with better coffee.
3. Posted alcohol levels on beer- You can by the same beer in different strengths, with the label having increasingly wild looking animals on the labels, with one 10%er going with the name "THE POWER!"
4. "The Simpsons" in French. I'm not losing the plot, since I've seen everyone a dozen times. But the accuracy of the voices is something else.
5. How nice everyone is- Most everyone speaks English, and the people who don't feel bad that they can't. I always say, if you can forgive me mangling your language, the least I can do is forgive your mangling of English.

You didn't mention smoked meat. It's what I imagine God eats when he's in Montreal. He doesn't have to wait in the "line up" outside the restaurant, though.
