Canadian Grobanites Unite!

Previous Entry Share
Hello everyone! I'm happy to find this community...I'm always happy to find fellow Grobanites who aren't...you know, crazy.

Name: Laura, aka. lauralareine

Age (optional): 26!

Province/Territory: Originally from Alberta, then Nova Scotia, then Ontario, and now I actually don't live in Canada at all (although I maintain my Canadian passport and pay my taxes like a dutiful citizen, so don't hold it against me)!

Job (student counts!): I teach English and drama at an American-style international school in South Korea.

Some other questions:

When was the first time you ever heard Josh?
I went to a Sarah Brightman La Luna concert in Calgary, and they did their duet. I fell in love with him immediately. I was way up in the nosebleeds so all I could see was his hair and I thought he was, like, forty. It wasn't until a year later when I saw his album in the store and thought, "Hey, it's that guy! Goodness...he's my age."
Now I'm kind of sorry that I didn't try to talk to him after the show.

What Josh song are you currently nuts about?: I like to write, and I like to listen to Josh while I write. The song of choice usually depends on what's going on in the story, so it varies. For personal reasons, I like Machine because it's been my anthem lately.

Ever see Josh live (in Canada, that is)?: In Ottawa back in 2003 (I think) for his Closer tour. I got his autograph. :)

What’s the best part about being a Canadian Grobie?: I like being Canadian, I like being a Grobie...but I don't really think of them as being that connected, really.

What’s the worst part?: Having to wait longer for things to be shipped.

What else (other than Josh) do you like? Bands/singers, etc.: Sarah Brightman, Sissel, Alanis Morissette, Jann Arden, and I like French-Canadian singers like Pierre Lapointe, Emily Loizeau, and the band Mes Aïeux.

What’s the best part of being Canadian?: Canadians who live overseas get treated a lot better than their American counterparts.

What is your favourite Canadian thing (food, items, stores, etc.)?: I know this might be a strange answer, but my favourite thing about Canada is that you could eat food from a different part of the world every day of the week. That's not something you can do easily in South Korea -- they are not about the international cuisine.

Do you like cows?: I don't love them, I don't hate them. They exist.

Anything else you want us to know?: I work hard to expose Koreans to Josh. He's not famous in Korea. I really don't know why. But I'm working on it. ;)
  • welcome laura! I'm Jena...and the other mod my fake wife anna is around here somewhere:) We're from Ontario & BC respectively:) We definitely cannot make claims to not being crazy, because we are crazy, but we are the good kind!

    The best part about being a CDN grobie is that we get to fangirl over stupid stuff like seeing Josh in a Leafs jersey...or with a cup of timmie hoes! :)

    haha, I was listening to machine as i read this!

    Oh man life without international cuisine would fail...poor you!

    Good on you for Grobanizing south Korea! Soon all of S.K shall be Grobies, and take over the world...or something lol.
