In this installment, we scratch our international itch again as we head up north to Canada. We're catching up with the lovely and talented Sandra, authoress of the very popular blog Absolutely Narcissism. [And we ain't kidding; she has more people following her than Lindsay Lohan in a jewelry store.]
LG warned Sandra that his questions would be a bit snarky, and, possibly, U.S.-centric, but she agreed to take on the challenge nonetheless. Sandra, as you'll see, is not one to toe the line of Political Correctness. In fact, the only time her toe touches Political Correctness is when she kicks it in the ass. On top of that, she's pretty damn funny and we highly recommend that you give her blog a look.
Now, it's time for you hosers to fire up your Canadian language translators, aay, and join us as we head north to Winnepeg....
The LG Report: Sandra, thanks very much for stopping by today. Please park your dogsled over in the corner there and we'll get right to the hard-hitting questions: Why do you live in Canada? Can't you just sneak down across the border? Don't all Canadians, deep down, want to live in America?
Sandra: Fuck you, LG.

The LG Report: You write the highly-successful and entertaining blog "Absolutely Narcissism," which can be accessed by clicking HERE. What's your favorite topic to write about, if you have one? And, actually, we assume it's your "favourite," not "favorite."
Sandra: Of course it’s “favOUrite!” And I love love love writing about myself! Of course some people might think that I would run out of blog fodder only sharing stories about me, but somehow I never tire of posting pictures of my life: pictures of me in the cutest dress, me in this super cute pair of jeans, me in this great bikini which totally shows off my chiseled abs…
Every once in awhile I’ll switch things up and post pictures of items which are representative of me, such as my sexy negligee, my sexy undergarments, my sex toy…ummm…can we scratch that last one out. I don’t actually own any sex toys. I wouldn’t want your readers to get the wrong idea about me…so you scratched that out?...Good, thanks…
The LG Report: Who's the Mayor of Canada these days?
Sandra: I think it’s Barack Obama?
…I’m not actually 100% sure though because I tend to avoid anything news related. It cuts into the time I spend staring at myself flexing in the mirror.
|This is Sandra again. Yes, really. Between the cursing and this photo: Goodbye The LG Report's G-Rating!|
The LG Report: If America got into a war with Mexico, who would Canada support? Remember, Mexico doesn't have any NHL teams.
Sandra: …yawn…I’m sorry…did you say something? I tend to zone out when the topic is not about me…
The LG Report: Why does Canada have its own bacon? What makes you so special?
Sandra: Well, I’ll have you know LG, that the Canadian bacon you speak of can also be substituted as a hockey puck.
The LG Report: You live in Winnipeg. That's not really on most Americans' radar, although we've heard of the town, home to the famous recreational vehicle maker ("I'm driving across country in my Winnipeg recreational vehicle.") What's the best aspect of living in Winnipeg?
Sandra: Oh Winnipeg is fantastic! It’s a little chilly for 10 months of the year, but June and July are awesome! Who wouldn’t love a place where you can leave the confines of your igloo for two whole months!
The LG Report: Actors Mike Meyers, Michael J. Fox and Michael Cera are Canadian, as is singer Michael Buble and retired hockey great Mike Bossy. Question: Do you have any other male names in Canada besides "Michael?"
Sandra: Of course we do. You really shouldn’t make such assumptions, LG. For instance, my brother’s name is NOT Michael. It’s Mike. See!
The LG Report: Speaking of famous Canadians, your country seems to have far more than its share of funny people. Besides the aforementioned Mike Meyers and Michael J. Fox, Canada was also the birthplace of Jim Carrey, John Candy, Dan Aykrod, Norm MacDonald, Phil Hartman, Rich Little, Eugene Levy, Leslie Nielson, Seth Rogan, Martin Short and, of course, you, Sandra, of "Absolutely Narcissism." What makes so many Canadians inherently funny? Does Canadian Club have anything to do with it?
|Trying to get our G-Rating back.|
The LG Report: Would you rather watch an Olympic ice hockey game featuring the Canadian men's team with a cold Labatt's in hand, or attend a German Opera in a much-too-hot theatre seated next to a smelly homeless man? Think this one over. We have all day.
Sandra: Is the smelly homeless guy good looking?
The LG Report: If you could have dinner with any famous Canadian, living or dead (sometimes it's hard to tell the difference, we know), who would it be and why?
Sandra: Ok, so we’re not talking about the good looking smelly homeless guy anymore?
The LG Report: Can you get us some cheap Viagra? Wait, scratch that question. It won't appear in the final edited version. Different question: On a scale of 1 to 10, how much do you hate the obnoxious and arrogant country that is America?
Sandra: I’m confused, just a second ago we were talking about a hot looking guy…
The LG Report: What do you think is the biggest myth that citizens of other nations believe about Canada?
|Sandra's feet were not visible in the bikini photo.|
The LG Report: We haven't asked this question before in the Interview Series, but we think this is the time to bust it out: What question should we have asked you that we didn't and what's your answer to said question?
Sandra: You never asked me if I truly believe I will rule the world. And the answer is yes! Absolutely. Have you seen my Ugg collection? Anybody who owns this many pairs of Uggs has nowhere to go but up.
