    While listening to music on my way home, I'm left wondering why some music doesn't make it big stateside..

    She was a rum old slapper
    and we always tried to get her
    pants off when she phoned
    Love is the Law
    from
    The Seahorses - Do it yourself

    i think the most phrase that changes most in meaning is the term "blew off". here in american english if a girl blew you off during the date then she left you alone and you had a poor evening. but in english english if your date blew you off during your date you are having quite a good evening.

    I get swamped with Americans making fun of my Canadianisms.

    American/Canadian
    Sweats/track pants
    Sneakers/runners
    line up/in line, queue
    pants/trews, trousers
    couch/chesterfield
    hat/toque
    soda/pop
    candy bar/chocolate bar
    zee/zed

    Tons more I can't think of right now because I've gotten so used to correcting myself.

    Except for a few nouns like soccer, football, fanny, bonnet, boot etc.,. and some Francophone words, much of Canadian English is the same as English English.

    Oh, and most Canadians do *not* say "eh". It became popular AFTER Bob and Doug MacKenzie started staying it. The ony ones who said "eh" before were the Down Easters (Nova Scotia et al) and the Francophones.

    Eh? Oh, go slap a trout or two

    My nick name in college was "Hosette". NO, it's the feminine form of "Hoser" not the girlie who walks the streets
