jiip happy

(no subject)

Having one of those achey ouchy mornings but then read this article on the winners of the 50 million lottery. (Hush, that's a *big* lottery for us.)
A Vancouver couple who are marking their 30th anniversary next month will have plenty to celebrate after winning a $50-million lottery jackpot.

Kurt and Claude Blanchette-Ebert claimed the winning ticket for last week's Lotto Max draw on Tuesday in front of media.

Kurt, a pastry chef, said he and his partner have faced some tough financial times lately and the win is icing on their cake.
Claude Blanchette-Ebert, 52, had worked as an upholsterer. Both he and his partner have since quit their jobs.
Claude is a woman's name in French so it took me until that paragraph to twig that they're both guys.
