So far the weekend has been off to a good start. The floor got insanely drunk on Friday night, and I couldn't help but be amused as I heard them retching in the bathroom at 3 AM. We did go to RATT as I stated yesterday evening, but it was a horrible experience. Sad to say, I have never had such a bad waitress in my life. Not only was she rude to us, she did not bring me my order, groused about our choice of payment, and then, to boot, when it was obvious we would not tip her. She stole her own! It was only 50 cents, but who has the gall to just force their patrons to tip. She definitely deserves to be written up for the Gateway's Burlap Sack (a column that gives well deserved citizens an experience tied up in a burlap sack and beaten (verbally)). I was planning on going to West Edmonton Mall today, but things didn't pan out there. I wound up walking with the FC, Al, and Willie to a sports shop where I picked up some ice skates. A splurge to be sure, but I figure they will get plenty of use here. I bought them used, and the total came out to be $55. Not bad for something I can sell pretty easily later. The Golden Bears played hockey tonight, and the game was good and cheap, $4. I am amazed by how small the sports are here in comparison to something one would find at U of M. Still, it is nice to be able to get front row seats, and not have to buy an $80 ticket 3 years in advance. The Bears won, but they won by a small margin because the Manitoba team had an awesome goalie. I realized tonight how bad of a cook I actually am. I am ashamed. Culinary lessons are sorely needed by myself, as tonight's forays into the kitchen almost resulted in a Lister-wide fire evacuation. If you ask for a steak, or any other food item, I serve it in only one color. Black. If you check out the pictures, you will see that I made some additions. Well, I think I'll be calling it a night. Salut.
