It’s been a really good, productive weekend. on Friday night, GG and I went out for dinner to this sandwich place and ended up waiting half an hour for our food. After 25 minutes, I said, “How long does it take to scoop two bowls of soup and make half a sandwich,” we were literally the only people there. Turns out there must have been some technical problem and our order never got sent back to the place where they put the food together. So the kid working there got us our food right away. I wrote a comment on the restaurant’s web site about what a good job the kid did, and also that there’s some problem with their order system.
Yesterday I went out early and did all my errands. Later, GG had an appointment with some potential mural clients. They really liked his sketches, so he’ll be faxing them a contract this week and hopefully can get to work soon! This is a really good project for him, and it could potentially lead to a lot of other jobs because the family he’s doing the mural for have a lot of friends and seem to entertain a lot, and they’ve already told some of their other friends about the mural they’re getting.
This morning we went to the Pet Expo at the convention center. It was not at all what I’d expected. There were baby tigers there, but they were more like a circus spectacle, in a tiny metal cage with two creepy looking guys overseeing them. The guys claimed to have rescued the tigers, which is great, but rescued them for what? They’re now being dragged around to pet shows to have people crowd around them and take pictures. It was kind of sad. Most of the other stuff there was dog-related. Even getting there within an hour of the show opening for the day, it was so crowded, and I just get kind of overwhelmed in situations like that. It makes me really tired and cranky. Also, lots of people brought their dogs to the show, and the whole place had a vague pee smell. So after going through the whole expo, we came home and I did a lot of chores around the house.
I have the day off work tomorrow, but GG doesn’t, so I plan to do some other errands and things, and just enjoy my extra day off before heading back for what could potentially be a tough week. Ugh.
