It just doesn't compare to Chipotle's deliciousness.
And unfortunatley Chipotle is only located in the US of A.
But maybe if they had the lime cilantro rice- like their menu said they serve and every picture shows. Or if the corn salsa didn't contain more beans than corn.
But they did grill it! And give you the choice of a whole wheat or white tortilla!!
So it will do in the case of a major burrito craving. But the USA wins a point for their amazing Chipotle Burrito's. Mmmm.

Thanks be to Craigslist for bringing us together:
Disgruntled American Seeks Canadian For Political Asylum, Maybe More
Date: 2008-10-01, 6:00PM EDT
Like so many in the USA, I've become increasingly fed up with my country. The last 8 years have been a nightmare of perpetual motion. The presidential election is almost a month away, but let's face it. If Bush's cronies were able to set him up for two terms, then McCain and Palin are practically a shoo-in. When that happens (and it will, just you watch) I would rather be somewhere else. Like The Great White North!
Are you a lonely, possibly desperate Canadian woman aged 18-50? Tired of trying to find a good man among your flannel clad, Labatt's drinking, moose hunting country men? Willing to take in an American who is fed up with his country? Then I'm the guy for you! Maybe you're a bit overweight or suffer from "Lifelong Ugly Duckling" syndrome. I don't care.
What I'm All Aboot:
32, tall, a bit pudgy around the middle, starting to go bald, but other than that it's all good.
IT Professional, skilled with computers, can fix yours.
Will get whatever job(s) available to help support us.
From Washington State, appreciates nature.
Willing to learn French.
Polite, working on being more humble.
Will pet your cat(s)/dog(s) and tell you how cute it is.
Can fake an interest in hockey.
Knows the first line to the Canadian National Anthem.
Will do whatever it takes to get the freak out of here.
What You're All Aboot:
18-50 year old female.
Willing to marry me for citizenship.
So there you have it ladies! This is your chance to help your neighbors to the South. Get at it!
I am Canadian. And female. And between 18 and 50.
If that ain't a match made in heaven, I don't know what is.
maybe he could live in Canada and I could move to the States with my new dual citizenship.
Being reunited with Target, Kohl's, Chipotle, Sonic....

Lydia really wanted a cupcake so decided to attack her mom until she gave in.
And what a party it was.

The last time I voted was when I was 18.
I have been living in the States during every other election.
One year I tried to figure out how to vote from out of the country.
It was much too confusing. So I didn't.
But today- I did.
It has been interesting to see the differences between elections in U.S. and Canada.
In Canada- our election was just announced less than 2 months ago. So less time for annoying election commercials. In the U.S. there have been annoying elections commercials and news stories for ummm... ever.
In the U.S.- there are only 2 major parties. Canada has 5 parties (plus independents) to choose from. Sometimes more choices are good. But that depends on the choices.
In the U.S.- you vote for your president. In Canada- you vote for your local leader, and that determines who the Prime Minister (the leader of our country) will be.
In Canada- they candidates are required to speak english and french. In the U.S.- it is a fluke if they speak a language other than english.
In the U.S.- I couldn't vote. In Canada- I can.
And I did.
How grateful I am for the freedoms we enjoy and the choices we have.

So I could do this.
So I did this.
But if it does it again- I may have to throw it out the window. I bought it at a thrift store 7 years ago for $2.99. Is it really worth the hassle?
Have a problem with YOUR sewing machine? Give me a call. And Relax. I'm a professional.

and the deal is, you go to your fourth photo file, and post the fourth picture from that file.
Here we go....
so this is it. the fourth picture on my fourth file.
This is me and my Sonic buddy- Anitra. I was feeling a little ill back in May- so I took a sick day. We heard about a new Sonic that opened which was slightly closer than our usual one over an hour away. So we decided a road trip was in order. I have heard Lemon- Berry Slushies cure everything. Mmmmm. 44 ounces of pure heaven. I want one right now.
so- now I am supposed to tag four people to do the same-
Anitra, Mikaela, Midge, and Rachel.
And anyone else that wants to.
