The Steem Sister Show - Episode 40 // Canadian Habits

in steemsistershow •  4 months ago

Welcome to the 40th episode of the Steem Sister Show!

Your hosts are @coruscate and @maryjaney. We are two sisters using the Steem blockchain to chat about our life experiences and provide a little entertainment value to the Steemit Community.

Topic of this Episode – Canadian Habits

Random topic, eh? Actually, for those who don't know - Mary and I are dual citizens between the United States and Canada and our entire extended family is Canadian. It's been a while since either of us have spent a decent amount of time up north - and so we were curious to see what Canadian habits we would notice while we were there.

You guys were ALL over this idea! I couldn't believe how many fun listener questions we got for this episode!

Shout-Out To Our New Toronto Friends

We did some serious name dropping of the following Toronto locals in this episode - @dan-atstarlite, @jaybird, @originalmrspice, @lifesacircus. I hope you guys get a kick out of this episode.

Ps... Sorry in advance for throwing Toronto a little shade. ;)

Here are the questions covered in this episode:

  • @d00k13 – Why do Canadians say sorry even when it is no one’s fault?
  • @daveonarrival – Is Tim Hortons actually part of Canadian’s DNA, or is it just habit to go there?
  • After spending 5 days in Toronto, did you notice yourself picking up any Canadian habits?
  • @aussieninja – Are there any words or sayings that you thought the whole world used – that you later found out was just Canadian?
  • @anasuleidy – What is an original and strange tradition Canadians have? Can you demonstrate on camera?

Sorry Mary...

Sometimes we are laughing so hard that getting a cute picture together just isn’t in the cards...


What is the Steem Sister Show All About?

We aim to bring more “non-crypto” related content to the Steem Blockchain. Although there is nothing wrong with this kind of content (@corsucate even posts on crypto related material sometimes) – we want to help create a better onboarding experience for new users. We talk a lot about attracting new users to the platform – but if the trending page is filled with crypto posts and flagging wars, they are likely to lose interest quickly.

We hope that by creating content that is more similar to what they are used to seeing on other social media sites – they will feel more excited about being here and creating content of their own!

How Does It Work?

We pick a different topic every episode, and then throw totally random questions about that topic in a hat and go back and forth. We always have a mix of our own questions and some audience questions. Our rule is that we cannot tell each other our answers before filming! So you guys are getting our raw, unfiltered reactions here.

Every episode we announce the next week’s topic so people can submit questions.

Want to win some Steem??

If we chose to answer your question in the next show… we will send you 2 Steem! Now that’s some easy money.

Next Week’s Topic : Sustainability

As true Pacific Northwest girls - living an eco-friendly and sustainable life is just part of the culture. We are excited to chat about all the different ways that we have implemented more sustainable practices in our life to reduce our carbon footprint.

If you would like the possibility of winning 2 Steem - please submit your questions! Anything on the topic of Sustainability is fair game. Listener questions always end up being the best ones - so thank you in advance to everyone who submits one!

That’s a Wrap!

We hope you guys enjoyed this episode all about Canadian Habits. I hope we didn't butcher the proper use of the word "eh" too badly.

With Love,

The Steem Sisters

Greetings, beautiful coruscate girl and her sister

Well cool this video of you. The video was funny, then, could not be different.

Since you put on the Canadian habits, take a look at this video about an Argentino in Canada hehehe:

thank you and good day to you

@coruscate I dare you to surprise Maryjaney with a dare while you are filming the truth or dare SSS show (Dont tell her ahead of time)


Yeeeesss!!! hahah that is brilliant.

I'll have to think up something fun! ;)


Lol im actually so excited


Great Post.

Sorry you apologize so much, eh.

Thank you for answering my question, I love the fun of the program, it's amazing so many laughs... My question is: What motivates you the most to follow the line of living in a sustainable life? How would you sell that lifestyle?

Great show ey!

Just for the record girls, we don't want the cute pics for your thumbnails, we want the hilarity... today's photo is amazing! It's seriously top shelf.

As for the big questions... Mary actually looks heaps classier with her lil pinkie out during wine o'clock. It's straight and true. Lea didn't really hit gold here, she didn't have Mary's pinkie confidence and it showed... Lea's pinkie was crooked and way too shy.... but Steem believes in you! With a bit of practice I'm 100% confident you can be a classy Canadian too!!

Sooooo… guess what? Canadians aren't the only ones that say 'Ey'. Both New Zealanders and people from the state of Queensland in Australia do too. New Zealanders basically use it to make every single sentence a question... it's very endearing and extremely friendly, but super annoying if you're in a hurry. No one in New Zealand is in a hurry.

Queenslanders use it more as a filler, to like, let you know they've finished their sentence... like when people with walkie talkies say 'Roger' or 'Over and Out' or whatever.

Super super super super super excited for the sustainability episode!!! This is a subject I super love... it's a big reason why we're never having kids. I currently have a miniscule carbon footprint except when I have to fly to the Midwest for work once every two months which is upsetting.

A question I'm super curious about.... do you think insect protein will ever be a thing? Environmentally it's kind of amazing, but I'm just not sure if I could go there...


Ah, I just remembered you guys down at the park, so I think that question might be too buggy... so, instead I'd like to ask:

  • How do you juggle personal comfort and sustainability?

Like, running the heat or AC all the time isn't great for the environment, but if you get too cold you might need more energy to warm yourself up... I dunno, I struggle with this a lot working from home.


Lol, Chinese people must be very sustainable eh? they eat a lot of insects... Also these Brazilian women who make cockroach bread (Still wondering why among so many insects they chose cockroaches)

You two are SO adorable!

"Why do Canadians say sorry even when it is no one’s fault?" <--- haha omg, I must be canadian, because I say sorry to everything! Even inaminate objects!

I remember when I was a kid, my bro was walking by the bathroom and overheard me saying sorry to the toilet (I had slammed the toilet lid down too hard).

Haha he made so much fun of me


Must be in your blood 😎

im impressive

Hey @corsucate @coruscate and @maryjaney,

Nice video and answers to those questions lol

Glad you had fun in Toronto... well, @maryjaney may not have, but hey, downtown Toronto is not typical of the rest of Canada, as it's basically like any other major city in North America... sorry to say 😂

The nightlife is always awesome, so it's great that you two had a chance to experience it. Also, on the 'eh' topic, I have a few friends from Alberta, and they sometimes end their sentences with 'hey' - which in person, sounds very odd, if you're used to 'eh'!

On to a question about sustainability/carbon footprints!

It's great that you two are trying to live a more 'sustainable lifestyle' by trying to reduce your carbon footprint, however, the carbon footprint of cryptocurrencies (mostly Proof of Work ones) is growing at a crazy pace! How do you two feel about actively engaging on and promoting the STEEM blockchain, knowing the increasingly negative impact to our planet?

Pinky, out!



I just realized that my copy & paste of your name included an error:

lol, sorry, @coruscate!

Somehow I imagine @coruscate provoking that reaction in the thumbnail from @maryjane quite often 😉 gotta pester your younger siblings and all.

W00t top of the questions list, I know there are no numbers but I’m still on top 🤣 thanks for picking my question.

Now to watch the video curious what you girls have to say 👍

The best answer I have ever gotten about why we say sorry so much as Canadians, “we have a superiority complex in being the most apologetic somehow we are better than you by being more sorry”. 😆

Sorry you girls don’t see how your the model Canadians 😉 that’s why the accent didn’t stand out in Toronto. If you want a true Canadian experience you need to go out in the boonies, prairies of Saskatchewan or Manitoba are pretty good.

Great show girls always a hoot!

Ps I think aye or eh is used by those whom wish to sport their heritage in the same way America is thought of by patriotism just a little more subtle and has function in all contexts.

Beautiful friends, my question is:
What is the hardest thing to leave or do to change and lead a sustainable life?

Wow as I laughed with you, they are cute, funny and talented.
I like that sustainable and sustainable way of life, one of the things that I like the most is sowing so I have an orchard, I believe that if we all contribute a grain of sand to create awareness, the world would be different.
¿Tell me what is the practice you do that you think is the one that makes the most impact in the world, why?

Lol, I didn't know Canadians said "eh" it sounds kinda strange eh?

Mexicans say something similar in the same way, but it's pronounced as a single Spanish E...
Good to know this, we learn something new every day :)

I have some questions for you about sustainability, as this is a topic I really like!

  • What strategies do you apply to reduce food waste?
  • Would you rather buy an electric car or a natural gas car?
  • Would you eat worms and insects for the sake of sustainability? (they are proven to produce less waste)
  • What do you think about the idea of a system that filters the water from the shower, sink, and washing machine to flush the toilet and watering plants?
  • Do you often use public transportation or bycicles?

I'll stop here haha, I could ask about this all day. Sorry for so many questions, I couldn't make up my mind, pretty undecided eh? :-)


waooo muy lindas saludos amigas desde venezuela
