After a really productive week, I had a great weekend. My friend and I went to the Casino yesterday, as we were given $20 token vouchers at the auto show. We had to sign up for Player’s cards. I discovered that I still had mine on their system. My brother and I used to go to the casino many years ago. Anyway, we hit the slot machines, using the $20 on our cards. My friend unfortunately went through the $20, plus had to add about $60 more during the hour or so we were there. I was a little more lucky and managed to come out $46 ahead, only using the free $20 on my card! Yea!
It was fun, although I can see how easily people can become addicted.
The day was nice after the rather boring night I had on Friday. I told my animal hospital that I would cut up my curtains, so they could us them as cage liners. Took almost three hours but I got them all done:
I might walk home during a lunch this week and pick up the curtains to drop off at the vet’s, which is less than a block from my apartment.
Here’s a cute shot of three of the goobers last night. They know they get their treats at 9:00, so when I walked into the kitchen at 8:45, they all thought it was time. Pinky came in right after I snapped this pic:
After nomming, Boo and Mya climbed up onto the cable receiver. Kinda cute that Mya decided to hold Boo’s paw:
I visited little Jan today. We had a coffee at Timmy’s then wandered around the Seaway Mall for a bit. We headed over to Zehrs for groceries, where we ran into our dental hygienist then Jan’s across-the-street neighbours. After getting some fuelage, we headed back to her place.
I decided that I would take my stereo system to my apartment. I bought it back in university. Love my 10″ Paradigm sub-woofer! I missed it. I’m surprised I got it all into my car. I don’t have too much truck space due to my two 10″ sub-woofers. I guess I’m a bass addict. Here it is all set up:
It sounds amazing! I can’t believe how much bass there is in commercials – you never hear it without a sub. Can’t wait to watch an action movie!
Oh, I almost forgot. Our union at work did a nation-wide walk-out at noon this past Thursday. The government is proposing to cut our pensions, severance and jobs. We were out there for our 30 minute lunch break. I flew over to take some pictures:
The St. Catharines Standard was there and did an interview for the paper. I was a little surprised, albeit amused, when I saw this picture. Everyone is looking up at my plane but the paper didn’t mention why they were all looking up! Tee hee!
Today’s symptoms: Felt pretty good! Actually, I’ve had the best week physically (except for Saturday because I didn’t sleep well) that I’ve had in a long time!
