Two More Sleeps 'Til Vacation Time!!

Today is the last day of our Canadian three day weeked celebrating Canada Day (our 4th of July). Typically this is the busiest weekend of the year at our restaurant and this year we broke all sorts of sales records. Our staff were all absolute superstars. God damn but these kids worked hard. I want to thank each and everyone of them for a job well done. Bravo.

More importantly, the end of Canada Day means the start of our summer vacation. We are off on Wednesday. Hittin' the highway for parts south. South Carolina, Georgia and Florida here we come. I plan on gorging myself on pork BBQ, Heineken, trashy books and outlet shopping.

But before we leave there is a mountain of work to do, laundry to fold, bags to pack, books to buy, a fridge to clean out and bills to pay. Why is always so easy to do a week of work in 2 days when there is a glorious vacation at the end of the road?

But no work tonight. Tonight we celebrate our successful weekend by breaking out the Haagen Dazs, flopping on the sleepy couch, and watching crap tv. By the way, Haagen Dazs Cookies and Creamsicles dunked into Baily's Irish Cream is really yummy.

Okay you should have asked that lady how she knew what babies tasted like.

You asked about the monkey butt pillow. For mothers day my son who is 10. Got me this pillow that is purple on the front and pink on the back. On the front it has a raised monkey face and it says SUPER MONKEY on the back of the pillow is a raised monkey butt. hehehee Only my family, let me tell ya.

It's been lovingly dubbed my "monkey butt" pillow.
