Name:la_rainette
Birthdate:Oct 17
Location:(states/regions/territories), Canada
Once upon a time, there was a happy, colourful frog who lived in a bizarre country full of wine, stinky cheeses and subtitled Woody Allen movies. One day, the little frog accidentally hopped onto a huge plane that took her all the way across the Atlantic Ocean, to another weird place full of raccoons and other unexpected wildlife. A place where people speak a very different language which she's still trying to come to terms with. This is her story.

So. I've been in Canada nearly six years now. And I like it, yes I do. But I am sometimes challenged by the different culture, way of life and language - please bear in mind I am NOT a native speaker.

This journal will contains rants, musings on cultural and linguistic differences, and stories about my kids, Froglet (9) and Tadpole (7). Nothing groundbreaking, I'm afraid.

If I am using an icon of yours, but have forgotten to credit you, PLEASE let me know. I SWEAR that I am not doing it on purpose, it's just that it's hard to stay on top of things sometimes.

As of June, 2007 this journal is friends-only. If you like the public entries I made some time ago and would like to be added, please leave me a comment. :) I am very friendly and I do not bite. Frogs have no teeth, anyways :D
