Today is National Denim Day and it’s not too late to donate to the cure foundation to fight breast cancer. Actually, it’s never too late, but if you donate before the end of today, you can truthfully explain to your boss why you’re wearing jeans to work (of course, if they’re acid wash you may have a hard time explaining that to anyone).

Generally, it’s a slow news day for the city. With no new hijab controversy, the press is turning its attention to the changing seasons and improving weather, which, according to la presse, is a perfect time for the criminal element to emerge from hibernation…

…which is exactly what Gilles Duceppe may be doing for the next little while. The BQ leader has egg on his face after his one-day leadership bid for the PQ…

…MySpace has launched a Canadian site, available in both French and English. It’s the first time that the group has offered multiple language formats in any country. I’m sure Quebec parents are thrilled about this development…

…A national group is launching a bid to bring the world’s fair - or expo – back to Montreal for the sesquicentennial in 2017. I wasn’t around for the first expo held 40 years ago, but much of the legacy of the event shapes current day Montreal. Unfortunately, chances are slim that it will result in a return of the Expos…

…and please don’t be alarmed if you find a snow monkey swinging from the trees in your backyard, or even sauntering down the side of the highway. A Japanese snow monkey escaped from a sanctuary in Picton, Ontario and is on the run. With the right hitchhiking technique, it could be in Montreal in no time.

Can I still wear acid wash jeans, even if I'm not going to work and I haven't given any money to national denim day?

I believe that you can only wear acid wash jeans if:
a) you have a matching jean-jacket, and neither can be worn independently of the other, and
b) you have some sort of rat-tail haircut, or
c) you have been paid $10 in a dare or to win a bet.
