food glorious food

weve had some interesting trouble with credit cards lately. hopefully we got a fix in today, but i am so tired of credit cards. especially american express, who pervertedly have to follow completely different rules than every other card issuer.

i've been trying a lot of different foods:
  • pretzels - yummy. They look crunchy on tv but are actually soft and fluffy and very tasty. great snack, especially with the crunchy salt on the outside. They come in all sorts of different flavours, too, although i'm not so sure how i feel about the sweet, dessert style ones. I think i'm going to try a jalapeno one next.
  • ben & jerry's - best ice cream ever. It was someone's birthday the other day and they had ben & jerry's ice cream cake. It was so damn good. Then, last night on the way home i popped into the convenience store and bought a small tub of their pistachio icecream. zomg. divine.
  • trix - for kids. really. imagine fruit loops in fruit shapes, like tiny little watermelon slices and rasperry bunches and bananas. fun.

we had such a chancer at the deck the other day. Employees get one free ticket for themselves and their immediate family up to a party of five. This guy arrives with 14 people including 6 kids and tries to convince everyone it's his immediate family. right. his brother got so embarrassed he offered to pay for everyone. the guy was even trying to convince us that all the kids were his, but his brother picked up on of the girls, gave him a dirty look, and said 'this one's mine'. what an arse. Then it turns out the guy works for protection, and he gets his boss to come over, who says to the manager on duty 'oh, it's okay, i'll just take them up'. And the manager is like 'oh, no, you won't'. Chancers.

we also had to evict our first drunk last night. he wasn't impressed. neither were we, although we were definitely amused.

Haha, the Trix rabbit is great =) Shame, he should have been allowed to have some Trix. Here's a great website about the whole Trix timeline.

schpat: mostly sitting around answering operational questions i shouldn't need to answer, and very few technical questions. our system is hanging together beautifully, which is great. the elevators, on the other hand, are not. you'd think that a business that has only one function - get people up and down a building - would have a primary mode of transport that didn't stop working at least once a day.
