'bout CA$9.95 a bottle.
a cheap, but cheerful, and cheeky little wine, if you ask me.
but then, if i knew what i was talking about when it comes to wine, i'd probably not be drinking cheap plonk.
however, every hard working woman is entitled to a glass of red wine to er, unwind, non?
anyway, my point was.
i was going to blog about work.
yes, that's it.
today we were visited by 3 very different people.
this morning two very handsome men came to our site, dragging large briefcases and important looking laptops alongside as they proceeded to examine every inch of our location.
they had badges and photo ID.
they had clipboards too.
so i KNEW they were important.
"we're health and safety." they said.
"and we are here to inspect you."
well not ME strictly speaking, but our site.
well it seems we have unknowingly violated several bylaws or some such because we don't have a health and safety rep on site, no fire extinguisher (we have a sprinkler system--HA! doesn't count), and we don't use alcohol based hand sanitizer. oh and our bookshelf is not fixed to a wall.
i don't' think we are going to jail exactly but we need to elect a rep to enforce these rules.
trouble is there's only two of us.
and we are having trouble with the election.
what if she votes for herself?
or if we both vote for her?
or if we both vote for me?
and neither of us wants to be 'the rep'.
it could get nasty.
i hate being a public official.
and then this afternoon.
there was a lull in our classroom.
we were learning about elapsed time.
it was quite boring to be honest.
i sometimes don't know how to spice up that lesson.
time is just time when it comes down to it.
you either care.
or you don't.
and sometimes, between the two of us, i feel, they DON"T.
anyhoo, at one point there was a silence.
we looked up.
we all heard it and we all looked at each other.
'there's someone on the roof'. we all said.
and then this guy walked by.
ah yes, Christmas in the mall.
everybody freaked out.
like they all believed in him or something.
so i took his picture.
he was quite real.
and now there is a train.
it goes around the mall.
you can ride in it if you want.
when it passes our balcony the driver pulls a lever and the train say,
and then O Holy Night comes on over the loudspeakers again.
I think this version is by the Chipmunks.
