I woke up this morning at 4:30AM at what would have been 5:30 AM if the time did not roll back from a dream about some shape shifting Terminator 2 type dream. After about an hour playing an old Super Nintendo ROM called Unchartered Water 2: New Horizons I left for my first day of work as a Tech Support Agent for a Digital Satellite TV company.

On my way home I stopped by the bank to set up my Direct Deposit stuff and was ROFLing when I seen this on the Bank of Canada website.

05/11/07: 1.0708
(1 CAD = 1.0708 USD)

This is the highest it has ever been.

So I talked to my grandfather in Manitoba and he is not to happy. You see a majority of his life he spent working in the USA. Hes a retired Steelworker. And his pension cheques are in USD. I told him to hang on to them till Jan. CAD should go down by then. I hope I am right.
