My mother gives me advice. -.-  
Mom: You need to be more politically aware when you're in England next week.
Me: Huh? Why?
Mom: Well, most of the country isn't happy that Blair sided with Bush.
Me: Yes - those would be all of my friends. -.- I'm not worried.
Mom: You don't need to yell at me, I'm just saying you should be careful.
Me: I'm not yelling, but I don't have anything to worry about, considering that I agree that we shouldn't be having this stupid war, and Mark won't let anything happen to me anyway.
Mom: Well, I'm just saying... *wanders off*
Me: -.-
I feel: pissed off about this !^%* war

You'll fit in better over here than you will at home at the moment. We had over a million marchers at the anti-war demo, Manhattan had 300 a couple of days ago.

Not meaning to diss NY of course. It's a lovely city. I just think you've got more of a chance of being surrounded by like-minded people over here, even if its just because of higher population density?

Re: Mom
Eh, I can't really blame her - she is a product of her upbringing. My grandfather was in the army, so she grew up on army bases throughout this country and Europe and has a strong pro-military streak, and she and I have never agreed on that. I feel that I can support individuals who happen to be in the military without agreeing with what the military is doing, and she doesn't seem to be able to make that distinction. -.-

Re: US citizens in Canadian Witness Protection
I might say that I am, if pushed. -.- I am just hoping not to get into any such conversations.
