G20 protest

Unbelievable that this is happening in my neighbourhood. That I'm a prisoner in my own home because it's too dangerous to go out. There are thousands of people outside - and the sad part is that it's only a small portion of those people who are not there for valid reasons... but to cause fear and make trouble. Who the hell are these Black Bloc trouble-makers? They're not protesting anything. They just want to cause trouble. Damage property. Hurt others.

I wish the police would grab this a$$holes and break some heads. These Black Bloc's are not citizens here. They should be charged and thrown into a jail - what message is this sending to the leaders that are meeting this weekend? None.

The news just stated that tear-gas has been used. People are hurt. Peaceful protesters are turning back so that they are no longer a part of the same crowd as the Black Bloc.... who are trashing windows, throwing mailboxes into the roads to block the streetcar tracks, throwing objects at police....

G20 damage

Police car set on fire at king / bay streets, burning out of control with no sign of anyone coming to put it out.

I can say that it will not be a nice/happy walk into work on monday... passing all these business' that have now been damaged by these trouble-makers.

I finished Springtime Bandit. A beautiful design done by Kate Gagnon Osborn. You can find the pattern here...

It took me 35 hours to knit it.

1st of all, permission was granted by designer to sell this item. Thank you for this beautiful "10in2010 shawlette", Janine Le Cras.

I started this on May 28 and finished the knitting on June 16. This took me a total of 25.9 hours to complete. Whew...

I hope Natali loves it. ;

I left work at 11:30 for lunch. Went down to the foodcourt, grabbed some chinese noodles and spicy shrimp, went out and sat at the Cloud parkette for 40 minutes.

Went back to work, wondering why Yonge Street was SOOO crowded. Got to where my building is and the police were directing traffic because the lights were out.

Went into my building and it's dark... and the elevators are all open, but dark...

Went to the conceriege and asked what happened. Security advised me that there was a power outage! So, I grabbed my cell, and called up to our receptionist. She told me that it was dark up there, and that they were waiting to hear back from the president about closing for the day. I asked her if I should walk up the stairs, and she told me not to bother, to go home!

So, I'm now at home... 1:41 in the afternoon... going to finish that 198 yards of heaven that I frogged back yesterday.

Have a great day!
