Jumble #2 of
Saturday night 306FEST

August 30th, 2003

Yet another mad Jumble (I really gotta catch up and start organizing these!)
of Friday night

August 28th, 2003

Tomarow is:

Who’s playing?

I’ll be there taking a ridiculus amount of pictures and you better be there too!!!

If you wonder why I haven’t been updating much its because it is my last few days of summer and I’ve been enjoying them! And you should be too!!

Soooo…. go for a bike ride, go to Cranberry Flats, go for a walk by the river, go get a slurpy, go watch the pelicans at the wier, go for a walk downtown, lay in your backyard and get a tan, get a ladder and go on the roof of your house and try to see your friend’s houses, go to the Zoo (no not the bar), go to a bar with a padio, set the dinner table outside and eat supper on the deck, walk in grass in bare feet, find your old Super Soaker and get your friends wet, get yourself wet, drive 10 mins out of town and look at the stars at night, go see a movie at the Sundown drive-in, go out for desert on the Earls Padio, go to pike lake for a day (night?), take some pictures, drive around with the windows down, go to Kinsmen Park, make a rainbow with a gardenhose, wash your car yourself with a bucket and a rag, always wear sunscreen :)

Remember just because your time is running out doesn’t mean you don’t have time at all….

Last night it was raining so I decided to watch a DVD. All of the players were signed out and the big screen DVD was being used as well.

I was going to just watch TV but then I remembered that it was Bingo night and the grand prize is a DVD player. I only had enough money to buy one card so I was like “I’m going to go win a DVD player so I can watch a movie”….and I did!

It was funny because all the other people had 8 cards lined up and were going hardcore and I just came in with 1 card, and when I had one square left to fill I was like “come on 0-66” and then it was drawn!

This just goes to prove that if you think long and hard enough about balls they will find their way into the small hole…hehe

August 22nd, 2003

I’m up North again for my LAST WEEK so I won’t be updating for a couple days

August 20th, 2003

I’m finally done. Today is my 4 year anniversary of “working for the clown”
and last night was my last shift ever :(   I will miss working there.
As much fun as people may make of working at McDonalds it was a really fun job
where I made literally over a hundred friends and always had fun when I worked.
I’ll end it with a poem I wrote for Grade 11 English:

Dream Job

Nuggets are up,

drop some fries.

We’re waiting on quarter meat,

Would you like that Supersized?

The smell of ketchup,

All of the free smiles.

The slosh of the mop,

On the reddish brown tiles.

The constant orders,

Drive through time.

There’s a spill in the lobby,

Every customer complains and whines.

Working ’til Midnight,

Soon I get my break.

Can never sit down,

Gotta fill the chocolate shake

Why do I work at McDonalds,

You might find it funny,

Thank you have a nice day,

I do it for the money!
