Gas Prices Today: 53.9
I will not be shameful when I say I slept a lot on saturday. Hell, I'll scream to the skies that I was in bed till after 3pm. Course, I also went to bed around 4am. After a long week of work friday I got the evening off and headed to vancouver for a going away/stag party for my dear friend frogbert who is off to find fame and fortune (but more specifically to get married) in the land down under. So that's how friday night was. Well, let me say this first, before I go on.
Fog'n Suds SUCKS
Hear me? They suck. Don't go there. I arrived around 7:30, and got my appetizer ok. When our crappy waiter finally got around taking our real order around 8:30 it took over an hour of waiting before we asked WTF was going on. At around 10 he confirmed that yes, we had ordered something, and not long after that I was told that my stir fry was on it's way, RSN. A bit later we were told that the bill had been "lost" which was why we were sitting there for so long. Oh, and after he told me that my meal was almost ready I was told that they were out of peanut sauce (it was a stir fry with peanut sauce) and would I like to try another stir fry, or anything else on the menu. Oh and the cost would be taken care for me.
Uhm, no shit. Like I was going to pay after the worst service I've ever gotten in a resturaunt, EVER. New waiter or not, that was nuts. And then after he whined about being $10 short on the bill. I mean, not even a "I'm really sorry about that sir" or similar, but "I'm still about $10 short on the bill." Just nuts.
So the moral of this small interlude is DON'T GO TO FOG'N Suds!
Anyway after we finally got out of there at around 11 (the food was supposed to be quick and basically just to get people together). We wandered around and tried to get something going. It was good to get togeather with people, but let me warn you, a poorly planned stag is not as good as a well planned one.
So after all this (and getting a microwave from Frog, one that doesn't turn itself on randomly) I got in around 3 or 4am. Then slept for 12 hours (though I think I woke up around 9 and had pretty fitful sleep till I finally got up. The rest of the weekend was pretty lazy for me.
Note: Don't do work on computers at night. I had some icky hard drive problems with my /home over the last while (the worst partition to have problems on... thank god for backups. So I figured "ok, I'll nuke it, recreate it, and then swap it with an mp3 partition that won't loose my mail and personal files if it decided to freak out and die. Well, somewhere along the way my /var got nuked, and well, it was time for a re-install anyway. So right now I'm waiting for things to install. I'm told it has 2h43m42s left. Greeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaat. Guess I could just go to bed huh?
Oh, and I'll be keeping track of gas prices (see above) daily (or so) to show everyone how they're jumping around. Yestuday they were about 62 or 64, and then while driving out to my bud's place (happy early bday!) they dropped to 53. On one side of the road. The arco was still at 63. Like... come ON!
