Posted on December 28, 2009 | 18 CommentsInvesting Newbie suggested that I do a regular “Idiot Mondays” series, but I don’t have enough stories aside from when we chat occasionally. But it would be a fabulous feature no? Okay, moving along, I have one sort of short story about his 3-year old...
Posted on December 27, 2009 | 9 CommentsThe Boxing Day deals weren’t that great. I tagged along with BF when he went on a hunt for something he wanted, and the deals were so-so this year. There was a huge line that snaked around the Future Shop on Ste-Catherine on the 26th...

Posted on December 24, 2009 | 9 CommentsI don’t normally talk about my family in glowing terms, but this time I’m doing it. My brother cleared his student loans last week!!! Extremely proud.
