Well the weather had other plans for me other than backing the Columbia out today. Even though I called several times, I managed to make it all the way to work before I was told that it was canceled. Probably part of the reason I was being slow getting to work – I knew it was just a matter of time. Normally, I would be upset, but since I have another Columbia shift next Sunday I will be happy as long as it doesn’t rain again.
So the bonus is that I got to meet up with Mom and Gary again. We headed over to the employee store only to discover it was the final day of the get additional discount weekend. So they managed to stock up on Christmas presents and save 85% on everything. I scored a cool Hong Kong Disneyland hat to go with my lanyard, mouse pad and pen.
We then tried to eat at the new Cheesecake factory at the Brea Mall. Due to the rain, the mall was PACKED. I have never seen that particular mall so crowded. Nary a parking space was to be had so we ended up at the Louise’s BBQ restaurant on the other side of the freeway. It was a pretty good meal. Now its time to just chill out and get ready for another early shift (6am!) tomorrow.
