There was something missing when I got into the city today. The City Weekly! It’s a weekly magazine handed out at the station every Thursday morning, but today the hander-outerers were nowhere to be seen. gasp.

How would I survive without my Thursday morning fix of city gossip? Without Kate Langbroek’s usually amusing column? Without the completely silly fashions they seem to find every week?

And most importantly, what about the quirky feature they have every week? Last week it was the cheapest and most expensive of everything they could find (eg hamburgers, pets, cakes, etc)… previously they’ve surveyed the junk on people’s desks and the ritual that is footy tipping… What would it be this week? How could I find out? Where was this essential CBD mag with the initials so very similar to TCWF?

Thankfully I found one at lunchtime. Otherwise there might have been a major crisis. Chanting office workers might have converged on parliament, demanding their TCW!
