United for the first time in many months, Skandy and myself did our very best to fit all we had planned within the three hours! Between announcing Laurier events and keeping you tuned in with the weather, we had a few nice long chats about a number of things…
In today’s, ‘Do You Care?’, we chatted about Vassilis Paleokostas! This modern day Greek Robin Hood robbed from the rich and gave to the poor. But that’s not enough to make this story amazing. In light of the recent prison helicopter escape in Quebec, Vassilis escaped from a high security prison facility with help of a helicopter… twice… on two different occasions. Better yet, he still remains at large in Greece! Safe to say, those in charge of the prison were quickly relieved of their duties. Skandy most definitely cared about this story.

Under the same segment, we also discussed Nils Olav. Sir Nils Olav, Colonel-in-Chief of the Norwegian Royal Guard, was knighted by King Harald V in 2008 in a ceremony that consisted of 130 guardsmen and much fanfare. What’s also interesting to note is he is also the mascot of the Norwegian Royal Guard… yeah. The most important feature of Sir Nils Olav is that he is in fact a King Penguin living in the Edinburgh Zoo in Scotland. To read more about the world’s most celebrated bird, click here.

Skandy and I also spend a great deal of time going over Buzzfeed’s 40 Amazing Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipes! Try going through this list of creative and fun grilled cheese sandwiches and not getting hungry; simply impossible. While on one hand the sauerkraut grilled cheese looked a bit risky, Skandy and I both agreed that goat cheese is perhaps our favorite cheese for this delicacy, while rye bread is our favorite bread. We did all this discussion with some lovely classical music in the background to help shake things up a little.
Needless to say, the two of us had a wonderful time! Today also marks two weeks left until our last show of the term! Be sure to tune in Monday – Friday from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM to soak in all the Morning Show you can before exam season rolls in!
P.S. It is Shatner’s birthday today. Send him fan mail or something.
