In Brief


  • Does anyone really still believe that Mugabe will go quietly? Didn’t think so.
  • Here we go again: The construction on St-Laurent launches full steam ahead into round 2… as though round 1 wasn’t a strong enough demonstration of the city’s incompetence.
  • Duh alert: Allophones have a harder time getting jobs than Francophones do in Quebec. Really? Is the sky blue, too?
  • You know it’s hockey fever when… even the police cars are flying Habs flags. Too bad our idiot mayor doesn’t give the same fan-dom rights to the firefighters.
  • The Habs decimated the Bruins on Thursday, but just barely eked out a win last night. 2-0 is 2-0 and we’ll take it, surely. But we’re going to have to step it up quite a bit tonight. Go Habs Go!
  • Hockey fever on the road: Boston is being invaded by supporters of the Bleu-Blanc-Rouge. Should be an interesting mix in the stands tonight at the TD Banknorth Centre. Then again, the Bruins fans deserve it for inadequately supporting their team. As of Friday when I last checked, there were still tickets available for tonight’s game on the Bruins’ official website. Shameful.
  • Did someone forget to tell it that it’s spring? After teasing us with gorgeous balmy weather, it’s been overcast, chilly, rainy and even threatening snow this weekend. Come back, sunshine!
  • Good friends… good crepes… goodbyes. Well, two out of three ain’t bad.

More proof summer is here


Today was Ben & Jerry’s free cone day.

Spring is officially here


Yes, I know technically it started two weeks ago. And I know the weather sucks and it doesn’t feel much like spring. BUT… we changed the clocks last night, which means a whole extra hour of daylight! Woohoo!

Well it’s official: spring is here!


Three days ago I went out in my boots, winter coat, hat and scarf to brush snow off my car. Today I started a walk in my lightweight spring jacket and ended up taking it off after a few minutes, that’s how warm it is. With longer days and nicer weather, people are coming out […]
