To our wonderful Canadian denizens of GT, happy Canada Day! Somebody eat a butter tart in my honor. (aside: I should totally bake butter tarts again soon.)

I posted this on facebook, but I need to expand on the irony involved and shouldn’t do so on fb because drama. My dad is Canadian, my mom is American; they lived in Toronto when I was born, near my dad’s family. When I was a toddler, we moved to New York at my mom’s insistence, so we could be closer to her family—who (thanks to some massive shittiness and outright theft on their part) we are now estranged from. 🙃🙃🙃

Anyway, enough about me—how are y’all celebrating Canada’s birthday?

Also, super pissed right now that there is neither a beaver nor moose emoji. So I had to make do with a duck that isn’t even a Canada goose.
