Almost forgot--Happy Thanksgiving to all our Canadian friends.
(Sorry it's a little late.)
I hate to be a 'kill joy', but please put a descriptive subject on the postings.
What kind of subject is "Eh!." ?????
I get 20-30 emails a day.
I delete a lot w/o opening. I don't want to delete a good PSE tip. This forum is very good.
"Happy Thanksgiving to all our Canadian friends." also those South of our border in OLD Mexico.
way south, near the Rio Grande
I suspect that you being "way south, near the Rio Grande" would not get the
meaning of "Eh!" as a subject line but believe me to us Canadians we
instantly knew it was directed toward us. This just is another instant of
the multicultural nature of this medium. Now if you ever come to Canada, and
it is a beautiful place to make as a destination, use the expression "Eh"
in casual conversation wherever you take a pause for a breath or need time
to think and you will be talking 100% Canadian Eh!
eh ? Yes, I totally forgot about Mom's thanksgiving and sent a belated one as well. In my opinion the Canadian date for this time is more accurate than the American date we dedicated as here in the states. Thinking in terms of the growing season for pumpkins, squawsh etc.... that was shared during this festive time.
Happy Thanksgiving, eh? Although by now the greeting is really late! And, you're right, Jodi, all that fresh produce would have been in really bad shape by late November, especially that corn! :(
By the way, Sherry, the forum is designed for logons, so it's hard to compensate for everyone who chooses to view it in a different format - be that e-mail or newsreader. When you guys decide to strike out into uncharted territory, well...
"Eh" is also very common in the upper Midwest, or whatever the part of the U S of A that Minnesotans describe themselves as living in. Joe would have gotten that, I'm sure, and my cousin in Minneapolis peppers his conversation with it all the time.
As a newsgroup reader, I found the title compelling - couldn't wait to check
I really couldn't imagine getting all the posts from this forum as separate
e-mails. Sherry, you might want to consider the daily digest, which is
really quite handy.
Even I, being a french canadian native, was able to recognize this topic's header!
Beth (and Joe) : I got an e-mail today with a subject line of "Do you want to network with?"!
To those of you not from Minnesota (and I speak only as a transplant here), Minnesotans just drop the last word of a sentence that has "with" in it. As in, "Do you want to come with?" [me] or [us].
Happy belated Thanksgiving to the Canadians (or would that be Canadiens?). Do you want to celebrate with?
I worked with a gal from Minnesota for so long that I even say that now. "Can I come with?" She never said "eh", though, but she was from a farm in the boonies, and maybe that's more of a cosmopolitan expression up there, eh?
