You Know You're From Canada When...

You're not offended by the term, "Homo Milk."

You eat chocolate bars, not candy bars.
You drink pop, not soda.
You know what a Mickey and 2-4 are.
You don't care about the fuss with Cuba. It's a cheap place to go for your holidays, with good cigars.

You like the Americans a little because they don't want Quebec either.

sorry to post randomly on an entry like this, but I can't seem to reply to your PM, because of your privacy settings^^;
Dec. 17th, 2010 02:11 pm (UTC)
Whoops. Well, that's odd. ;; Anyway, this is fine, we can talk on this entry.
Dec. 19th, 2010 12:02 am (UTC)
Lol its ok. Well, anyway, did you want all the plushies, or just the Kuro and Fai ones(if I can find the Fai one, I'm still looking^^;;)? As for price, I'm thinking $12(AUD) per plushie, plus postage?
Dec. 19th, 2010 12:45 am (UTC)
I'd like just the Kuro and Fai ones, please. ^^ And the price sounds great to me. It's just about the same in Canadian currency, too. How much would postage be?
Dec. 20th, 2010 04:05 am (UTC)
Ok, looking online, the postage looks like it would be about $16 by seamail, or $21 by air mail....I haven't had a chance to actually ask at the post office, since they were closed yesterday, and I'm at work the whole time they are open today^^; postage is to Canada yea?
Dec. 20th, 2010 06:15 am (UTC)
Alright, well we'll figure out the price when you go ask the post office? And yes, it's to Canada. ^^
Dec. 23rd, 2010 05:45 am (UTC)
sorry for the slow reply, but I asked at the post office and because the package weight would be under 250 grams, the postage would be $8 by sea mail or $10 by air. However due to Christmas public holidays, I wouldn't be able to send a parcel until mid next week. Also, I still can't find the Fai plushie, so if I can't find it do you still want the Kuro one? I'm still looking though, so how about I'll let you know next week if I've found it or not and go from there?
Dec. 23rd, 2010 06:46 am (UTC)
Alright, I think air mail would be good. ^^ Thanks again! And yes, that's fine; it'd be difficult sending it out during the holidays. And yes, I'd still want the Kuro one--- even if you can't find the Fai one by next week, I'm willing to buy it when you do, even if you send them separately. Thanks once again! ♥
Jan. 6th, 2011 02:04 am (UTC)
Have you been able to find the Fai plushie?
Jan. 7th, 2011 08:56 am (UTC)
Hey! i meant to get back to you by the end of the week. I've looked through all my boxes, and I can't seem to find the Fai plushie, sorry^^;;; Did you still want the kuro plushie on it's own?
Jan. 7th, 2011 12:44 pm (UTC)
That's alright, it should be fine with just the Kurogane plushie. ^^ I'll look elsewhere for the Fai plushie. Thank you~.
Jan. 10th, 2011 09:33 am (UTC)
Ok, if I find it I will let you know...ok, so $12 AUD plus shipping (which is $8 or $10 depending on type)for the Kuro plushie, is paypal ok? My paypal address is channon.bell@gmail.com. I can then send it the next day I'm free(probably Wednesday). Thanks~
Jan. 11th, 2011 11:56 pm (UTC)
My mom has a paypal account, but she said she's never done it this way. How will it work?
Jan. 12th, 2011 10:11 pm (UTC)
When you click on 'send money' you can type in an email address, and the money will then be sent to my paypal account. Also, I'll need your address so I know where to send Kuro to =p

Ok, I've got that down, so if you want to delete the comment with your address in it, it's all fine^^. I received the payment too, so I'll send the plushie tomorrow~ Thank you very much!
Jan. 13th, 2011 09:46 pm (UTC)
Ok, I'll definitely delete my comment/address now. XD But yay~ You're welcome, and thanks as well! ♥
Jan. 14th, 2011 12:17 am (UTC)
I sent it this morning, I was told it should take about 2 weeks. Thank you~
Jan. 14th, 2011 12:39 am (UTC)
Alright, that's great! Thank you very much! ♥
Feb. 4th, 2011 09:57 pm (UTC)
