Un autre "winner"

(English below)

Dans la même veine que ce billet et cet autre billet, j'ai une toute nouvelle recherche bizarre qui a mené à mon blogue. Quelqu'un de France a cherché sur google l'expression suivante, et je cite:

"in some ways i love everything cause it's less of a thing than like, less distinct, less particular. i like things that i like but i love everything. there's more choice in like cause ev".

Ce qui prouve que les Français sont aussi nuls à l'internet qu'ils l'étaient en l'an 2000, la dernière fois où j'y étais. Ils devraient se contenter de Minitel. Anyway, mon google-fu étant plus puissant, j'ai trouvé ce que la personne cherchait fort probablement: un certain vidéo sur Youtube, qui semble autant bizarroïde que la citation elle-même (c'est peut-être une vérité de La Palice).

Non, ce n'est pas aujourd'hui que je vous conterai mes aventures sur le canal Rideau. Par contre, j'ai enfin une nouvelle tondeuse et un paquet d'autre trucs, parce qu'on a obtenu, 8 mois après une première tentative, un crédit d'achat chez Canadian Tire, et ce, malgré un changement de politique entretemps. Donc, Canadian Tire, contrairement à d'autres magasins que je ne nommerai pas, offre un maudit bon service après vente. Par conséquent, on pourra enfin s'occuper de la verdure de notre terrain. Parlant de la verdure, une camarade de classe du secondaire (pas "The Green") m'a retrouvé sur Facebook, ce qui m'a surpris un peu. Avec mon nom unique, je suis facilement retrouvable, ce qui n'est pas vrai en général pour mes amis et connaissances de l'époque. Anyway, c'est drôle qui on voit et ce qu'on apprend des fois sur Facebook.

*********************

We have a new champion in matters of google searches that led people to glimpse at my blog for a fraction of a second. To follow-up on these posts, the weirdest query that led here is this:

"in some ways i love everything cause it's less of a thing than like, less distinct, less particular. i like things that i like but i love everything. there's more choice in like cause ev".

It doesn't make any sense, so it's no surprise that it came from someone located in France. It appears that the internet and its intricacies are still very new to the French, just as it was nine years ago, the last time I was there. Maybe they're still stuck with Minitel, who knows? I just hope that by the next time I visit, they'll have left the third world, joined modern civilization and done away with squat toilets, but I highly doubt it.

Since my google-fu is ages ahead of whoever made that google search, I think I found what this silly person was looking for: an equally nonsensical YouTube video.

If you're waiting for my frozen Rideau Canal escapades (or ice-capades), it'll have to wait for another day. But I did, finally, get rid of our old shitty faulty lawnmower (last model still on the shelves at the end of last summer for a reason, the same reason they don't sell it anymore), and used the store credit to purchase a new lawnmower and lots of other things (OK, that old one was not only shitty but pricey, and you have to use all the credit at once). At least Canadian Tire has good customer service, unlike some other stores I will not name. So now we (and by "we", I mean mostly my better half, I gotta work in the summer, and go to Vancouver and Washington DC) can take care of our yard again. Yeah, the backyard is still all weeds. Speaking of random things, it turns out some high school suspicions I had were right. It's funny the things you learn on Facebook.
