There's this little hidden place downtown, it's a chinese take-out in fact, but they also have a salad case and you can choose any four for four dollars. I usually splurge and pay the extra dollar for the diet coke. This is the combo I most often take - tabouli, spinach salad, nicoise, and greek pasta. You know it's a slow news day when I lead with a picture of lunch.
There was all kinds of hubbub where I was working yesterday and the place was crawling with reporters and newsfolk. That's because the biggest pension fund in Canada announced how much it had lost in 08. Turns out they were very bad pension fund managers and lost a quarter of the funds, or 40 billion dollars. It wouldn't be so bad if like funds lost a like amount, but the average loss was only 17%, making this big news.
It's snowing here again this morning. I can't even tell you how done I am with winter. The sun rising higher in the sky isn't even helping, it's just making it all the more blinding out there.
Serge and I both found the segment funny on the gags show last night.
