The loonie is killing me ...

As a guy who makes most of his money in US dollars, but lives in Canada, the high value of the loonie (Canadian dollar) is killing me. It's at a 30-year high today, according to this report in The Globe and Mail.

One of the reasons for my switch to a cross-border Penguin Canada / Penguin USA deal was to diversify my income, so that some was coming in US dollars and some was coming in Canadian dollars. :)

I'd never thought of you as an exporter, Rob, but I guess you are...

Yeah, I hear you, Rob, but on the plus side there has never been a better time to buy US junk off eBay. I've never held a US dollar account, so I'm pulling for parity.
