1.89 - The One with the chase

So another year...another Christmas...and of course...to go with that...Boxing Day. I'd like to meet the person who had the brilliant idea of having massive sales the day after Christmas. What were you thinking?!?! My family decided that it was a good idea to hit the Eaton Centre downtown TO...oh sure where the logic was behind that one...but I did come away with a bunch of stuff. I've never seen that mall as busy as it was...sure I've been there during the Christmas rush...but this was ridunkulous. There were stores that would only let a certain number of people in at a time...there were line ups OUTSIDE of the store waiting to get in...kinda like a VIP club. Foot Locker was nuts...the line for the checkout went all the way around the store. I had one item in my hand and it quickly went back on the shelf. After hours of shopping we ended up at the theatre to see King Kong...good movie...long...but worth the $9 my brother paid for the admission.

The best storey of the day...while linning up at Freshly Squeezed we were perhaps 10th in line. The line was moving well...all of a sudden there was some screaming and yelling....I looked towards the comotion and out of nowhere some guy was tearing down the mall with about 8 security officers chasing him. I don't know what happened next...but the line in front of me evaporated and I got my smoothie...mmmm...banana, strawberry and mango...

Now you know why the security guards were running? It was on the front page of every paper.

Snifsh...good verification word.

ya know what? the running of the guards was at around noon...I was at the Pickle Barrell (on Yonge just north of Dundas) about 1/2 a block away from the shooting when that happened...but being underground we didn't know about it until we got home....
