Happy Sunday to you all.

Even though our prime minister doesn’t feel like working today, I’m taking one for the team.

Here’s your news, ladies and gents:

Grown Ups can call time outs too – As we saw this week in the Harper government, when things get too rough, the most logical choice (apparently) is to prorogue parliament, essentially putting any federal government activity on a stand still.

Does this mean that if I have a tight deadline to meet, I can just call my boss and say, “listen, let’s just put everything we’re doing on hold for a week or two, and after some time off, MAYBE we can get back to doing some real work. I’m sure our clients would understand.”

Here’s to you Mrs. Robinson – Northern Ireland’s First Minister’s wife got herself into a little tizzy this week channeling another Mrs. Robinson (think the Graduate).

If you’ve been living under a rock for the past week, it must have been uncomfortable.

Here’s what you missed:

Housewife Apocalypse–a.k.a. Oprah is ending her show in 2011. Dr. Oz and Ellen, you’re under a lot of pressure to deliver. Think about giving away cars.

Fare Hike–More like unfair hike. Just kidding. The TTC has to do what it has to do to keep it running well. I just hope everything doesn’t go to shit post Pan Am. Continue reading
