What am I Supposed to Do With it Now?

Just went to McDonalds to get some breakfast, and used one of those coupons from the book they sent out, for a free sandwich. Handed it to the cashier, then she rung in my order, and handed it back :s I'll keep it, I guess, but I doubt I'll ever get around to using it.

Also: poor Josh.

He stopped by at 10 last night, presumably on his way home from work, but I was already in bed, like I said in the entry below. What does he do? Comes upstairs, and knocks on my door twice (extremely quietly, might I add), then goes back downstairs and does something on the computer in the dining room, and played games with Adam (or so I'd guess, judging by where the sound of his voice was coming from). God forbid, if I didn't have a lock on my door, he probably would've walked right in :x

But then I slept 'till 4, and just before waking up had some dream about it having been a really long day, and that it took 'till 4 in the morning to get everything done and taken care of. It seemed all so relevant while I was having it, but now that I've been awake for a while, and don't quite remember all the details, it's just strange :p

Anyways, stayed in bed from 4 to 6:30, when I went downstairs and tried the Guitar Hero III songs I'd downloaded, then Adam had to be dropped off, I got my food, and that brings us back to the beginning of the entry.

Since it's almost 9 though, I'm going back to bed. At least 'till 3 or so~

Observations on the Sign at Work

Last time I checked, it said "GET A QUESADILLA TODAY". Maybe there was an exclamation mark in there too, but anyways, that sounds terrible. If it wasn't so overused, I'd have already suggested they change the "get" to "try", or perhaps have "chicken" on one side, and "steak" on the other.

Or going from a different angle, how about "Quesadilla: you may not be able to pronounce it, but try one today!" Unfortunately, that sounds a bit long, and I don't think we have colons or commas for the sign.

It's just... does what the sign is supposed to say come from someone in an office somewhere, or are the manager(s) of their respective stores left to decide what they want it to say themselves?

And having said that, they need to have us start promoting another item that's not grilled, because it's amazing, what sort of things happen when customers come through a half hour before close and learn that the grill is off. Most of the time they'll order something else, or say "Thanks anyways" and drive off, but I clearly recall a couple guys coming through before, while Glenda still worked there, and wanted to know if we had some sort of compensation for the grill being off :s

So I believe the closers tonight are Michelle, Steve, Josh C., and me. Sounds good enough.

Until then though, back to what I was doing before I started typing this~
