How can I get a Couche-Tard t-shirt?

How can I get a Couche-Tard t-shirt? Couche-Tard ("goes to bed late" or "night owl" in French) is a Canadian convenience store with a great logo. As a night owl myself, and the sort of person that would love having something that said "Couche-Tard" on it, how can I make this happen? eBay's never produced any good results...do I have to swipe some stationary, scan it, and get a custom-printed shirt?

As a Canadian living and working in the US, should I pay off my Canadian student loans ASAP?

I'm a Canadian living in the US with an outstanding Canadian student loan. Getting paid in US dollars was working in my favour with regards to making monthly payments on the loan, but not so much anymore with the Canadian dollar on the rise. Is it predicted that the Canadian will stay up and keep rising in value, or this a temporary blip? I'm wondering if I should bite the bullet and pay my loans off now, in one go, or ride it out for a few months to see if the US dollar manages to pick itself back up. I realise that there is no one, scientific answer for this question, but educated guesses are appreciated.

Filling prescriptions when visiting Canada and the UK

In order to save money on my prescription meds, I've been mail-ordering from Canada and the UK. However, I know that the online pharmacies that handle the process add a significant markup over the in-country prices available through the respective national health care systems. Over the next four weeks, I will be in both Canada and the UK. Can I fill my prescriptions directly, with a US doctor's written prescription? If not, is there some way to obtain a local physician's prescription? (The meds are psych meds, if that makes a difference.)
