You know who you are…

My own medicine eh? *chuckles*

There was no need to apologize, between you and I there never will be. Thank you my very dearest friend from the bottom of my heart.

Work..oh dear lords above…

So I get two days off a week now that I had to fight for. This is the good thing in this Post.

Today was my first day back to work after those two days off which I enjoyed very much despite the fact that I had to go in to work briefly on one of them. It was my choice so I did not mind.

Today though..I think everyone took their nasty pills. Linda was her usual self, whenever things get a bit stressed she comes off with, “Ugh I don’t wanna be here…” which I have grown accustomed too. But then it turned in to “I hate this job, it’s always the same” and the ever popular “I need a vacation!”. Now anyone who has talked at length with me about my job knows that this woman gets more time off than anyone else in the entire frigging Restaurant. She just got back from two weeks Vacation not ten days ago. She takes every other weekend off plus her normal days off…so twice a month she gets a four day weekend.

Our Food Order Company is all screwed around now, new Distributor has changed our delivery days which takes a man out of our Kitchen on Monday and Thursday now..we are already short staffed those days as it is. On top of that I found out one of our long timers is looking to move on. Soon. As in a couple weeks.

Now in the past I would have been thrilled for her…but right now we have a rough crew at work, many of them are brand new and have to be watched all night to make sure they don’t screw the pooch. Now is not the time for us to be losing an experienced Cook.

I swear though..there is only so much more of Linda bitching and whining that I can take. She’s a great person but she’s ALWAYS complaining. A STAPLES just opened in our town and I am seriously considering putting in for work there…which sucks because I love cooking…just these damn people can’t ever seem to be pleased with what they have.

I like my job…I just have a hard time with some of the crabbing my co-workers do. I guess that’s as simple as it gets.

Long time no blog!

It’s been a busy last few days for us here at the old homestead. All summer long we’ve been planning a trip to Animethon 15 in Edmonton and despite a few nervous moments (the Itinerary for th event was not posted until 5 days prior to the event itself) it did indeed happen this year.

We had planned to go down for all three days of it but the last minute worries made us change our minds and opt only for the Saturday excursion.  We did see an amazing array of CosPlayers who went to alot of trouble to dress up as their favorite Anime Characters.

Of course the highlight for me was the dealer room. I love wandering about and seeing all the different items of Anime Inspired goodness that are to be had. I think we spent a bit more than we had planned to because we ran in to some folks with some really beautiful Jade pendants but I had anticipated us going a little over budget so it wasn’t a panic moment.

My Camera passed out before we got to the Convention so I got no photos of any of the awesomeness. But I did get a picture or two in the West Edmonton Mall.
