Anyways, I told him I didn't know if I was going to the Christmas party, so he told me to check, and give them a call back. I phoned them about 10 minutes later, and said that yes I would be there. I figure it's $20, which isn't bad. It just means that one of these weekends coming up I'll have to go without a trip to 7-11 or Sobeys :x Even if I pay the money though, I don't know if I'm actually going to go to the party or not. Last year I was there to eat, then for about an hour afterwards, before I headed out into the lobby to phone for a ride home (it was at Country View Golf Course last year, and I'm pretty sure it's the same this time). Either I'm going to just go for the meal this year, then go home, or I'm just not going to go at all. Yeah, it's really stupid to be paying twenty bucks to get out of working one night, but it's too late to turn things back now.
Next, I got new speakers today. These ones. There's nothing really to note about them right now, except that they're much better than the old speakers we had. It's really funny. Aside from the computer itself, we've been using the same computer equipment for nearly 10 years. It really doesn't seem like that long, but it is. Wow :o What's more, the keyboard and mouse were the only things that really needed replacing. I might very well be getting a new computer next month too :s
The only other thing I have to write about right now involves something I saw on the way to Staples. Who made the sign for the Lucky Inn? How many comments have they gotten about it's spelling? Why haven't they changed / fixed it yet? It's spelled, on the sign "Lucky In". What's the lucky in? How to you put lucky in something anyways? GG people, learn you some grammars :p Heh... interesting. I just got to searching to see if "Lucky In" had a website, and instead I found some restaurant review site, with basically good things to say about that place, but then I took a look at the map, and noticed that they had The Cajun Pepper rated pretty poorly. We're going there for Heart and Stroke's Christmas party, so I figured I'd take a look at what people had to say.
It seems most complaints have to do with the refusal to take anything off the food, "for appearance". Right away, WTF? Why are you even bothering to serve food to people, when you're so concerned about it's appearance that you won't even take certain items off? Honestly, the extent of my experience with that sort of thing was when some guy came through the drive through at Taco Bell before, and wanted a Double Decker Taco with beef instead of the bean. Normally, we shouldn't do that, because then there's nothing to hold the taco shell and tort together, but someone just came down to the window, and let the guy know that it wouldn't stay together, and he was fine with that. They're paying for it, so it's not as if we can refuse them.
Anyways, as for the reviews of the other place, one far-fetched theory came to mind. What if the real cause behind the refusal to take whatever off the food was that the food came pre-made? Yeah, that's next to impossible, but it still could happen. So we're going there on the 19th. Thank God it's about 5 minutes from our house. If things don't work out, I'll just head into 7-11 (it's right next door) to get something to eat, and go home :) I really should show the reviews to Michele though, but I can't help but think that if I do, it'll ruin all the plans. Whatever. I'll keep my mouth shut for now I guess.
Anyways, I think that's about it. I want to be up at 10 to call EB Games to see if they got any more Wii shipments, and if they don't, eh, I don't know. Either I'll go back to bed, or just stay up and go to Heart and Stroke at 1.
For now though, I'm having a shower (maybe) and going to bed.
