Greetings and Happy Monday! The day when all possessors of the BOJ take our posts, answer phones, make photocopies, and generally try not to let the weight of 5 WHOLE DAYS crush our spirits. Waking up to bright sunshine does make it a little easier though.
News item for the day: hopefully everyone knew about Earth Hour this past weekend. On Saturday at 8pm everyone was supposed to turn off their lights for an hour to save energy/send a message to the government about our priorities, etc. Unfortunately, this little receptionist was a wedding, and most brides are not too keen of an hour of dark and silence in the middle of their receptions. However, turns out that Vancouver's energy demands dropped by approx. 3% during Earth Hour, and North Van's dropped by 7%. Well done! Shake your hand, pat yourself on the back, and revel in your globe-saving sacrifice (as you commute from North Van to downtown in your SUV of course).
