Oh Canada

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away, and I accidentally stumbled into a website, which told me in no uncertain terms that as from this year, the rules for getting a temporary work visa for Canada had changed.
Previously, there was a blatantly unfair system where Canadians could come willy-nilly to Britain and hang around for up to two years, but Brits had to be a student to even think about trying to get one year in Canada. This poor state of affairs has been slightly improved, and now if you are British, and 35 years old or under, you can get a work visa for Canada for up to one year.
This means that I am now eligible, so therefore I have been presented with backup plan number 2. I am going to call this plan the 'Canada Option'. Soon, I will have a vast array of plans before me, and I will be able to choose the best one.
Some of you may be wondering what back-up plan number 1 is. This is called the 'Samos Option', and I can't really divulge the details as it is a highly secret project.
Incidentally, the original plan number 2 was the 'Egg Scrambler Option'. This has been rejected at the first stage due to logistical problems.

What are the details of the Canada option then? You could always combine them with the egg scrambling option.

I have this feeling Canadians are big on egg.

Glad to see Samos is still number one.

Ahhh, details, details..
There are no details, only options. 'Details' is a funny word when you say it enough times. Go on, say it - 'details', 'details'.
OK, that's enough.
