Mamma Mia!

Just an average week with work, eat and sleep. I managed to get awesome seats for Mamma Mia! for the last night (Sunday October 9) right in the center near the stage. I can't wait to start dancing again. And I'm bringing a date...and her Mom too!??! Oh why not?

ABBA Rules

Tickets for Mamma Mia! go on sale tomorrow morning at 10am, so I get to stay up after work and get the best tickets available. I have to decide which date to go, and which date to bring (that's easy).

Hockey's Back

Yes I was pissed off at both the owners and the players for screwing around with us for a year. But at least now there's going to be hockey. Time for me to make money in the hockey pools.

Back to Work

It was a relatively uneventful week at work, but I guess it was nice to get back into the swing after my days off. Nothing much has changed except we got a new game (Four Card Poker) and got rid of another game (Let it Ride).

Word on the street is that there will be more promotions coming soon, because of the upcoming expansion at the Coquitlam Casino. So once again I must submit myself to a week or two of torture hoping to get the prize at the end of the rainbow. Again, many people have said that I should get the promotion, but they said that last time. So we'll see.

In other news, I was at Chapters and came across this pen. It's become the talk of the casino.

And So it Ends

It was a relaxing holiday with not too much in the way of news. I helped my parents move and then the same with a coworker. Other than that it was a lot of rest and relaxation. But tonight, it's back to the grind. At least I'll start getting tips again (well not until next week). I need a holiday.

Still on Holiday

I'll be helping a friend move tomorrow, and then we'll see what happens. This holiday has been so uneventful but that's the way I planned it. I also have use of my friend's car until the end of the month, as she decided to fly to Paris. Cool...time to raid Ikea.

10 Days Off

At last my well needed holiday begins.

It's sad to hear what happened in London. It looks like the world is once again being scared by terrorists.

Tuesday, July 05, 2005


Only two more days until my 10-day holiday. I've decided not to go to Edmonton as originally planned, but instead to relax at home and get my stuff unpacked and the place straightened out. I may end up picking up shifts at work since it's quite evident that they are quite short of supervisors. We'll see.

Wardrobe Check

I have 24 dress shirts (only three of them are white) and 22 wearable ties for work (five or six cartoon ties that are not within dress code standard), I wonder if that's a record for guys at the casino. I just bought two more today from the Bay, only because they had a nice sale. The funny thing is they're going to put all the staff (except for management) into uniforms at work. I know a lot of the staff have stopped buying shirts and ties and crap but not me. There IS management to look forward to, and I'm not going to stop buying shirts.

Oh yeah, Happy Canada Day to everyone.
