    Hey! I am a friend of a friend of a friend of Hayden!! A good friend of mine at the college is from Toronto, and he's good friends with someone who is good friends with Hayden!! He's even seen him!! OOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHH....hehehe

    hey, everyone has to have some claim to fame....mine's just a stretch (but it's all seriously true!)

    Wow...I was just joking about the Hayden sightings a la "office Bob" in the beer comercial.

    A bit off the topic, but a cute story. We also spend a week or two in Jackson Hole, Wyoming (Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks). For those of you who don't know, Harrison Ford has a large ranch just outside of Jackson Hole. Anyway, we stopped in a small coffee shop one morning and just had to laugh. Behind the counter was a very large black and yellow sign: No, I haven't seen Harrison Ford, so stop asking!

    Well, I thought it was funny...

    You guys are sci-fi geeks and you don't know who Robert Patrick is? Oh my god!

    He played the T-1000 on Terminator 2 and he was Scully's new partner on the X-Files.

    It's a joke. It's from "Talking to Americans", which is a show that exposes the ignorance of the average American about their northren neighbour. We know that they rely on us for raw materials.

    LOL what do you mean expose the ignorance of Americans? They knew about the great caribou hunt. You know the one where we kill them with tim bits. after we track them down with one of our two BRAND NEW airplanes. Then ones with the propeller even!

    Ah, they knew about that? Wow... Maybe we don't give them enough credit. After all, it's not the average American who can tell you what a timbit is... ;)
