Anyway, I was all geared up to work out, and she informed me they were closing in 20 minutes, which confused me because the decals on the window in the front listed the Saturday hours as 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. and it was 12:20 p.m. The gal told me that it didn't say that, at which point of course we had to walk to the front and look (I couldn't let that one go) and she said, "Huh. Those must be summer hours. We're closing at 1:00." So. It seems posted hours don't matter, if the person working has something going on and wants to get the hell outta there. Twenty minutes was actually plenty, I did the elliptical and would have passed out if I had been allowed to go any longer. It probably saved my life, being "forced" to quit early.
After, Kenny and I headed to Parmatown, he wanted Sakkio Japan's famous Teriyaki Chicken for lunch and I - hold on, this next statement is going to come as a surprise - needed to make a return. Yes, I know, that's unusual for me. I purchased some makeup from Prescriptives back in August and I just don't like it (and it was pricey). I may be close to my "out of time to return" but was going to give it a shot. Well, the Macy's at Parmatown doesn't sell Prescriptives, only the Great Northern and Strongsville's stores carry that line. So my return attempt was moo (Friend's reference).
While we were malling (yes, I've turned a noun into a verb), I happened upon some friendly folks at the T-Mobile counter and I believe we're getting new phones. They give you a pretty decent credit towards your cancellation fees with our other contract, we got to take 2 new phones home with is for a 14-day trial period and, if all goes well, it's a one year contract vs. two years. Not to mention we'll save $30ish dollars per month vs. my Verizon bill. There's always a catch with the stuff, but the most compelling reason to change is that we get NO RECEPTION at home on our cellphones. Calls drop as soon as we pull in our driveway, and Verizon has been unsuccessful with fixing the problem. So far, we have a good signal in the driveway and house. I still haven't figured it all out yet, that will take some time. I am going to try and sell my old phone, it's a Samsung and was quite pricey, but I've never really loved it. I can't quite figure out how to put my photos as wallpaper on this new one, that better work or it's going back. So that was a random decision, but hopefully we'll be much happier and actually be able to use our phones in the house - imagine that.
It was a very big week - I finally got the revised Deferred Compensation agreement signed and sent to the Ohio Pension people. Fucksteve finally quit dicking around. Hooray!! I'm finally, 100% done with that worthless fatass human being. Those words sound harsher than I feel, I couldn't care less about him at all anymore actually. It's just fun to call him names, because, well, he is fat and he doesn't have a strong moral character so why not. But really, I'm just relieved to have all of that settled. Chapter closed.
Very few folks have heard about this (folks that I've talked to, anyway), but the Cinemark in Valley View (where Kenny works) will be showing the Garth Brooks concert via satellite on November 14th. He's performing in Kansas City for a week, and the show on the 14th will be beamed to select movie theaters and tickets to see it "live" were only $10 each. Of course we snapped up 6 of them, a couple of other couples are going with us, and I'm very excited about the whole thing. It will definately be something a little different to do and I'm happy that I have a boyfriendie who loves Garth even more than I do - he didn't hesitate to grab up the tickets. We're going to make an evening of it, with dinner before the show. I'm excited, our friends Dan & Bev and Kim & Jim are joining us. My friend Joanne from work might come, too - it will be one big festivus! I asked Kenny if it was sold out yet, and he said that his friend Chris - who works in the ticket booth - hadn't even heard about this yet. They have done a piss-poor job of advertising, to say the least. Good for me, I'll get better seats.
And with that, I bid you adieu and wish you another fine week.
