Monday – I know what I’m getting for Christmas
Hubby has a monthly Metro pass, that we both use. I had to drop labs this morning for my first lab run of the new drugs (read: Tivicay) I am testing at the moment. Six fifteen came very early this morning. It was still dark when I got to my bus stop to board.
The process was quick this morning, as I was only 15 numbers in when I got there.
Read: take a number and hurry up and wait for the next available agent…
Here in Montreal, public sector workers are on rotating strikes to demand better working conditions and better pay. Teachers across the island are on two days of strikes that began this morning. At the hospital, they were out marching and blowing those god damned vuvuzela horns.
I was like, can I shove that horn up your ass now. We’ve heard you and you are still blowing !!!

Since we are in Christmas mode, thoughts eventually turn to what we are going to get each other for Christmas. Over dinner last night, I said to hubby that I only wanted one thing for Christmas, and that one thing was a new phone, since my HTC Hero is three years old and it only has two functions, One, to make calls, and Two, to listen to music.
He came back with “dammit, you spoiled my surprise!”
Like he could have kept his mouth shut in consideration of what I had asked for.
He was in the works to buy me a new I Phone 5S for Christmas.
He just blurted out what he was up to, so the gig is up.
We have broken our Anti-Apple crusade. Since we are a Windows house.
I will enter the new digital, phone crazy, doing multiple things all at the same time crowd.
Not that I engage in that kind of behavior now. I’m just not that connected to my phone, as people all over the place are. No matter where you go, people are fixated on their little screens, Face Booking, Texting or Tweeting.
I guess I will find out what the phone will do and learn how to multitask with that little device.

This Friday, November 20th, is our 11th wedding anniversary.
I re-appropriated my mothers birthday. Since she is out of mind.
We are having dinner at a very fine steak house called FIRE GRILL …
Last year was the first time we dined there. It was a great dining experience. However it is not cheap by any means. But you get what you pay for in the end.
There are three restaurants in town that we dine at that are at the top of the monetary budget, which (read: $100.00 dinners) Rubens Grill and Smoked Meats, Baton Rouge in the Hyatt for Prime Rib and Ribs, and Fire Grill for outstanding steaks.
A few months ago my friend ken visited from California, he is a foody …
That week, I spent over $150,00 on food in just three sittings.
But it was money well spent !
Today there are only 40 shopping days until Christmas …
More to come, stay tuned …
