Following that, I talked to a couple people a bit more (Mary told me to tell Manoah what extra cleaning I'd done on Saturday night, and Patience asked if the wallet I was carrying was mine), then walked over to the other window because a customer wanted to order more food, and said goodbye to everybody. It was only then that Manoah told me to wait. I stopped, and he asked to questions. First, would I be online later tonight, so we could talk about the money, and second, when was my birthday? I'm not really sure he had any reason for asking the second one, but I answered anyway, and to the first, told him that I would be, to which he said that he would send me a message later then. It's now quite a bit past "later", and I haven't heard a thing from him. Has he forgotten? Was he just too tired from work? Will he not be able to pay me back for a while to come, and not want to say so? He and I close on Wednesday next week, so we might have a chance to talk then at latest, but he might also be there when I head in for my shift tomorrow, in which case I think we could talk a bit there. Uncertainty with him aside though, it was nice getting positive answers from Mary, and just as planned, I took a detour over to the mall on the way home, and bought two advent calendars from Dollarama. Santa was at the mall, which I found rather amusing, as November isn't even over yet (perhaps that explains why he was all on his own), but I disregarded him, and went for what I'd walked out there for. $2.26, they cost me, only to come home and eventually learn that Mom had purchased one for each of us. I suppose that could work too though. One chocolate in the morning, one chocolate before I leave for work / whenever I feel like it on days I don't work, and one chocolate when I get home from work, or before I go to bed. Yes.
Continuing with that topic in a slightly different direction now, I'm slightly dismayed at knowing 4 of 5 (possibly 5 of 6) things that I'll be getting for my birthday / at Christmas. Trish has a new set of PSP earphones for me, which I knew about well before, and then this afternoon, Mom and I came into three more. Two were purchased on eBay - a replacement PSP battery cover and screen - and for the other, we had to go all the way out to Walmart. What was it? Gravity Rush (a PS Vita game). The site said $29, the sticker said $39.89 (or something like that), and the receipt said $29.00 plus tax. ~$10 in savings is nice. Adam said he'll try to get the CD I asked Trish for, so there's that on top of everything else, leaving little to be surprised at. While we were out at Walmart though, I wanted to go look for more deodorant, so I did, and had to pass by / through the section full of blankets along the way. Oh, how very much I wanted to stop and take my time looking through and buy one or two things, but Mom was with me, so I couldn't. I did tell her she could go wait in the car though, as I didn't want to wait in line at the checkouts to pay for a single stick of deodorant, and wanted to go get a DVD she said she wanted for Christmas, so she left, and I used the time to look around a bit. I wasn't able to find exactly what I got last year - what I was hoping to get again but in a different color this year - but still did see quite a bit of interest, which makes me that much more excited to go there on my own after work some night coming up. I should like not to spend ~$150 again, but that's precisely why I won't just buy anything and everything that I can think of.
As for other things, I wrapped all the Christmas gifts I have so far that I don't need boxes for earlier tonight, and as such, am kind of thinking about getting some garlic bread and mozzarella sticks from Pizza Tonite for supper. I wasn't aware it was 2:30 already though, so if I'm going to do that, I'd better get on it soon. Problem is that feels unnecessary, considering everything I bought yesterday. That I can recall, four boxes of Kraft Dinner, a package of hot dogs, ten (10) cartons of juice (eight from Real Canadian Superstore, where they were on for 84 / 88 cents each), two bags of cheese breadsticks, and two big boxes of cereal. I definitely will get into the cereal, cheese breadsticks, and juice on the weekend, but it's a nice ~$40 worth of food that I've put away, and haven't touched since. In spite of that, however, Pizza Tonite still sounds like a good idea. I can drink a carton of juice with that, and still have a good couple hours afterward to fill. I think I've talked myself into it now, so... yeah. Time to go get the phone~
