Canada's Journal


March 28, 2009

Kumajirou! His name is Kumajirou! Since I now have a way to remember his name properly, perhaps he'll be able to remember mine…?

Probably not. It's not like it makes any difference…

Anyway, I was clearing off one of my bookshelves to dust it off when I found this old diary. I've been doing a lot of cleaning lately, so I suppose it's only natural for me to stumble across something like this. It still has a lot of old entries from quite some time ago. I think the last one was probably around when Alfred and Ivan were still giving each other the cold shoulder. As far as I know they're over it now. They even hang out sometimes although I think Alfred is still rather intimidated by him. I don't blame him though. Ivan's a big guy.

It's been a while since I last wrote anything in here. Flipping through some of the old entries, I noticed that a lot of them got shorter and shorter as time passed. But I've been itching for something to do recently so perhaps I'll take up journaling again? It's an idea, at least.

For the sake of getting it down on paper, I'll go ahead and mention how things are going now. The economy is in a bit of a slump right now. Alfred seems to be taking it the hardest but he says he'll pull through. He has a history of economical slumps so he's learned to sort of go with them. I'm doing fairly well in my own opinion, although I haven't really had a chance to ask the others how they're doing. Not that they'd notice me in the first place.

But enough about that.

Other than the economy and what not, things are pretty normal. No outrageous wars ripping up the land although the Middle East seems to be causing a lot of trouble. But, again, it's mostly Alfred that's dealing with it.

I suppose it's just because he likes to stick his nose into other people's business. It's really annoying how he does that. I'm sure I've berated him for it before but it can't be helped. He's just too obnoxious for his own good. And don't even get me started on how greedy he is! The debt he has is enormous and he has the nerve to keep asking for more money? Poor Yao must be at his wits end with him. I think the only reason those two get along is for the sake of everyone else's economy. And then there's also the way he shoves that greasy slop he passes off for food down his throat like it's nothing! I don't see how his body can handle all that cholesterol and als

I'm rambling. I should stop.

Uhm.

April Fools is in three days. I'm not particularly looking forward to it. Not so much because I'm afraid of getting tricked, most people don't even notice me to begin with, but it's overall just not a nice "holiday" if you can even call it that. I don't see what's so fun about playing pranks on people. I'll probably end up doing the same thing I do every year and go around giving people maple syrup. Syrup always makes me happy so why not share it?

I'll have to cut this entry a little short. Kumakito is hungry and he keeps biting at my feet. My stomach is starting to growl at me too so I suppose it's a good place to stop.

Poutine for dinner! Yum!

A/N:REDUX because after reading through the first version. Holy SHIT did Canada sound like a wimpy teenage girl. I'm going to attempt to make him a bit more manly and…well…more manly. Because in my head, Canada is far from being a chick.

I actually think Gilbert is more of the feminine one than Canada but y'know…that's probably because he was in a PINK TUXEDO in "Paint it White!".

I'm leaving up the old version because I'm a nostalgic prick and something in me would break if I took it down. Even if I still have the old files on my computer…

Also those One-shots I promised with my last PruCan fic will be written within the next two weeks. I don't want you guys feeling as if I forgot about you. I've simply hit a bit of a rut and I'm finally starting to get back into the groove of it.

This fic will likely be updated VERY fast because it's sort of a way for me to get my internal gears turning and, of course, it's just being rewritten. I'm talking like...on occasion more than one chapter a day.

Anywho, BON APPETITE!
