But all the COOL kids are doing it!!!

Or was it a suicide attempt?!?! None the less, I'm missing a good hunk of my middle finger on my left hand!!! Happened when I was cutting lemons at work... was such an interessting day, after that a very cute tree planter came in, he was from Winnipeg on his way to Dawsons Creek and had an 11 hour layover in PG. We talked for quite a while, he snowboards, spent $5600 on the BODY of his Nikon camera *jealous*, but his real passion is wakeboarding! He had nothing to do that night, and I didn't either so we made plans to meet at Shooters at 8:30, and me being me, was a little late, but I was IN the bar by 8:35, and he was nowhere to be found... so I hung out till 9:00 pm, then took off. I assume he got lost, or changed his mind, w/e not a big deal, but believe it or not that was the very first time I've been stood up!! Bought WAY too many munchies after that and went to Jennys house and watched "Night at the Museum" it was cute, then went home!! I love just letting life take you where it will...

The night before at work was much more interessting. You see, I was serving a birthday party for a young girl, and her mom asked that when I bring out the cake I put 10 candles on it! Easy enough. So time comes, I can't find the stupid cake, finally find it, shove 10 candles on to it, round everyone up to sing songs, light the candles, carry it accross the restaurant, get it to the table, and everyone just stares at us... I brought the wrong @#*(&R cake. Go figure! So we bring it back, I almost drop it, totally remove the whip cream in one spot and leave a thumbmark in the side of it... and it ALSO has 10 holes in it... but best of all, let me point out the writing on it said "Happy 17th Birthday Bridgette" You think I woulda clued in on the 17. After that naturally noone wanted to sing happy birthday for this table and I had to sucker new people in! Lol!!

Work has been SUCH a gong show lately. Its really frustrating. Not one shift this week did everyone come to work, in fact Thursday-Saturday we were short 2+ people. People calling in sick, going home sick 1/2 way through, people not showing up at all, people calling in to quit, management calling in sick. Management also had to slap on an apron for most of these shifts since we were so short staffed... its really frustrating, and annoying!!!

OH! I also managed to market myself to a complete stranger!! Kind of, he's the husband of a lady my mom rides with, whom among many were invited to our house the otehr night. I'm not sure how it started but we got into photography, I showed him some of my work, gave him my card, and I might be shooting his next album cover!! Very excited, and scared. Also, tomorrow I'm going to set up the lights and take proper family portraits! Excited and nervous about that... hopefully family is in a more photographic mood, and feels patient.

I think I've covered most everything, I've been watching Nana quite a bit lately, and reading lots which is always nice and relaxign... but now I should feed the ponies, upload some pictures, and maybe go have a nice bath :D
