• Toronto writer live-tweets being locked inside the Bay

    Think for a while, you are in a shopping mall, intending to purchase groceries and many other items and suddenly the lights of the shopping mall turned off, how would you feel and what would you do?
    This is what recently has happened with a Toronto based woman Emily Keeler, a writer and editor. She used twitter for her help and offered a good piece of entertainment to her followers.  Actually, she was locked inside the Bay and posted a tweet that “I am trapped at Hudson’s bay at Yonge and everything is closed here”. Upon reading this message, most of her followers wrote what happened and how you had been trapped. She replied, I was looking for sheets set and suddenly light went off.
    Lastly, a follower of Emily suggested her Today’s Special, a Canadian ’80s kids’ show featuring puppets and magical mannequins that takes place after hours in a department store.
  • Toronto Star writer has meltdown after Canada loses to US in ice dancing

    The Toronto Star’s writer Rosie DiManno -writing on Olympic ice dancing- is not happy.  She started melting down when a pair of U.S Meryl Davis and Charlie White beat out Canadians Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir to get the gold medal on Monday.
    Her piece of writing begins with some punching statement that describes the Ice Dancing as “a tawdry whore of a sport where the judges are the johns.”  She further writes “If the fix is not in against Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, then I’m the Princess of Wales.”
    Few days ago, a report in French sports publication had been published stating that the Russian and American Judges were cahoots against Canada and they were trying their best to get through their contenders. On the other hand, IOS had declined the request to probe the claims. It said in its official statement that “it was a baseless and groundless gossip which does not require any investigation”.
    Besides, it is said that Meryl Davis and Charlie White were supposed to win the gold medal and they were reining the world of champions because they had already been declared as favorites.
    It goes without saying, whether you believe in this monopoly or not but it is true that Rosie DiManno has come to harsh conclusion about the figure skating and she said that “A quarter-century of covering the sport has taught me that figure skating can never be trusted and ice dancing is the worst culprit.”
