Best Game & Video

As I write this, it is simply 46 minutes since July 19th has ended. It was a pretty great day, and for no big, exciting reason. Just a couple of small, good reasons. July 20th has been pretty decent as well.

  • At work I moved a family from a drive-up (kind of old), into the main hotel (renovated in the past couple of months). First he said he wouldn't forget it. When he came back to drop off the keys from his former room, he handed me a $20 bill. I can count the amount of times I've gotten tips working at the front desk: $2 for bringing up a corkscrew to a room, $10 to split with a co-worker one morning when checking someone out, $5 for bringing a bucket of ice outside to someone, and $20 for switching someone's room. Since the money is much needed, I'm quite happy about it.

  • Mozza sticks. They need no explanation.

  • Big Brother is ready and waiting for me on the DVR!

  • Saturday night I watched Degrassi Takes Manhattan. I love Degrassi: The Next Generation, as I mentioned in yesterday's Getting To Know You. Of course I loved the movie, as unrealistic (and creepy - eg part about Declan and his sister Fiona) it was. I DVRed the new season of Degrassi, and just got home to see that there were 3 new episodes tonight for me to watch : )

  • And see if this doesn't make you smile:

  • And last, but maybe my favorite: The Best Game in the World.

It is called Bloons Tower Defense 4. Basically, you buy random monkeys, and cannons and other means of shooting to pop 'Bloons' Before they get to the end of the track. It starts off simple but soon you've got all kinds of 'bloons' coming out, and each color is worse than the next. Red is normal. Every other color has at least one more 'bloon' inside, some 20, and they speed out. Each time you bust one, you get more money to upgrade and buy more weapons.

I spent all night at work playing it (honestly, from at least 7 until midnight, with some job interruptions) and I still want to play again now that I'm home. Don't play it unless you have the time to get addicted.

But if you do, let me know what you think : )

You showed some cleavage to get that tip, didn't you?? (that's what I would do) :P

And PS, I spied your hotel when I came into the city...briefly considered stopping in and saying hello, but then decided that would make me entirely too creepy.

Woo hoo for tips. That was a pretty nice one too. Good for you.
That video is so funny and cute.
