Hopefully all of you reading from the East coast are all OK! While we got some snow here in Ontario, it’s nothing like what you all got out there so hopefully you’re all doing well!
At least as well as Dexter anyhow…
He couldn’t be happier curled up in his cardboard “barrel” with all his little catnip pillows (he’s sitting on them)
As comfy as he is, we did get a lot of snow in Southeastern Ontario which led to some of our local squirrels digging tunnels in the snow to get to our bird feeders.
This made for great breakfast entertainment as you could see them popping up and down from the little tunnel network they had made to get from the treeline, to the shed, to the feeders… It was like watching a game of whak-a-mole only with no moles, and no whacking there-of.
In no direct relation to that, this is a great time to quit smoking! Costco seems to package all of their Nicorette sales together so if you’re looking to quit, or just cut back a bit and need a little help (Trust me it took me & my partner a long time) this is the time to get stocked up and ready to tackle the monumental task!
It takes a lot to quit smoking. It took me a lot to finally quit, and without preaching I can honestly say it’s the best thing I’ve done. So let’s move on.
Headaches came along with the aforementioned activity and Tylenol always helped, be it Tylenol Complete (60 caps) for $4.00 off @ 13.99 or my preferred brand Kirkland signature acetaminophen 500mg for $3.00 off @ $9.99, at that price you can’t go wrong to be prepared for the muscle and headaches. (plus I always bring a big ol bag of them to the restaurant to help servers “recover” from long nights and early mornings.
Another little gem I like to bring to work with me is the Wholly Guacamole minis (12 x 57g) on sale for $9.99. I’ll grab these whenever they’re on sale and bring a box to work so I can have a quick little snack (which is a rarity in the service industry, that could be a whole other blog… How the heck do servers/bartenders/cooks survive?)
That brings me towards the end, but also something I’ve been thinking about and trying to do lately.
Trying to keep track of my days at work… Ya know, a quick little write up of what happened, who I met, who screwed up an order, what I screwed up (rare, but it happens!) … Just keeping a daily write-up of the insanity that happens in a restaurant.
For a long time I’ve neglected the fact that I meet a lot of different people from all over the place who all have different stories, and I get to meet them and share a few hours with them at my bar. That’s what I love about the industry, you meet people from all over the world that you would never meet anywhere else, and they love to talk; and I love to listen.
I think anyone who worked in the restaurant industry could write a book, and anyone who did/does I’ll read it! Like Anthony Bourdain, the good, the bad, and the ugly of the kitchen & restaurant is highly entertaining to me. I could sip coffee and watch or read about it all day.
On that note it’s time to go, the restaurant requires I be there in the A.M. so… Night night!
