Favorite new CD of the moment: Tim McGraw & The Dancehall Doctors

Favorite song from aforementioned CD: Real Good Man

Favorite line from aforementioned song: "I may be a real bad boy / But baby I'm a real good man" - it's just so dirrrrty and so very country!

Just a few bullet points for those of you out there who are curious as to what's going on lately.

-I went to the doctor's and everything is fine (insert collective sigh of relief here).
-The neighbours on 3 sides of me are noisy, which is nothing in and of itself, but they're all being noisy at the same time right now. Aargh.
-I will need a roommate as of April 1st (female only), so if you know of anyone who wants to live in a quiet, mostly furnished apartment near Brentwood mall (rent + utils = approx $500/mo) e-mail me!

For the lucky readers who've managed to read this far, I'd like to take a moment to insert a small rant:

First of all, I'd like to take a moment to educate those of you who dine out and use coupons. There is nothing wrong with using a coupon - heck, I do it myself sometimes - but there are certain responsibilities that go along with the privilege:
1. Always mention before you order that you have "such and such" coupon - bonus points if you're polite enough to ask if it's ok to use it on that night.
2. Always READ the coupon before you intend to use it. It is not my problem if you order the special, eat every bite of it, then break out the coupon which says "specials excluded" and get mad because I won't give you the discount.
3. Never EVER complain that "such and such" restaurant would let you use the coupon, or give you a better deal, or whatever. If you wanted their deal, go to their restaurant. You wouldn't go into a BMW dealership and utter the complaint that "Toyota sells their cars for $13,000 - why don't you?"
4. When the bill comes, the tip should be 15% (step out of the dark ages people - 10% went out the window long ago) on the entire amount before taxes, and more importantly, BEFORE THE DISCOUNT! Just because you didn't pay for that 2nd entree, doesn't mean that me or the kitchen staff didn't do any work preparing and serving it to you. I know that I certainly don't work in the service industry for my health, or because I like the people. I work for the tips. If I wanted $8/h I would work at McDonald's.

That is all - Happy Dining!
