The Show

I've had this up for a while, now, but I haven't mentioned it to anyone publicly yet. So here it is; it's called The Show. Check it out, it's on the sidebar. This will be my sandbox for web development; Javascript, PHP, and CSS. It has a shoutbox as well, so feel free to leave me some comments about the site.

So, let us update. My job at BP is sucking terribly... I've worked the last three days... Friday night, followed immediately by Saturday morning...wonderful. And then again Sunday morning...which I was almost late for due to the fact that they had a planned power service outage that night. Lucky that I got up in time anyway...that is to say, lucky for them. It being Sunday, you wouldn't expect much business, but it being Father's Day...ay ay ay. I almost was stuck working overtime due to the heavy backlog of dirty stuff...

Gameshow Marathon has winded down to the last two episodes... And each show so far has been a magnificent recreation of the original set... The Price is Right's Contestant's Row (although they don't really need a recreation of it...), Let's Make A Deal's three doors and three curtains, Beat the Clock's (well...) clock, Press Your Luck's Big Board, and Card Sharks' card "table". Next up is Match Game... I expect to see Brett Somers and Charles Nelson Reilly there. They're both still in action. (By the way... Did you know that Brett Somers was born in New Brunswick? It's on the IMDb...) Brande Roderick will be playing Family Feud... Who will join her? Kathy Najimy? Or Lance Bass? We'll just have to wait and see...

"I said name a time that most people get up. And being the Einstein that you are, you said morning. Our survey said... zip! Now if that wasn't bad enough, I then said name a time that most people go to bed, and you said, of course. Night. Our survey said... 2!" -- Richard Dawson, Family Feud

The Encounter, part 2

And now...the rest of the story.

Monday came... I was awakened by a barrage of kisses, which is definitely the best way to wake up. :) We had some breakfast at the hotel's kitchen... Then we headed off to the Regent Mall. I have never before witnessed the shopping prowess of ladies with money. I was bewildered, and dragged every which way through the various stores. It was scary! :P

Eventually, we finally decided that we were hungry and thus should have something to eat. I had myself some pizza, then pulled out my pouch...the one where I stuff all my cards, like membership, identification, all that stuff. I noticed this one card that said "Cadillac-Fairview"... I asked the customer service lady if it was good at Regent Mall...and it was. So I bolted off to EB Games and bought "Brain Age: Train Your Brain for Minutes a Day" for DS... I didn't pay it off with my gift card, but it only cost $7.

Coming back, we passed by the theatre, and checked out what was playing... Me and Amy decided to go watch "Over The Hedge"...which constituted our first official date. Kinda cliché first date, but what the hell. The movie itself was great... If you haven't seen it yet, go see it before it disappears from theatres! And the date was definitely fun, too :)

So, we returned home... Deal or No Deal was on, so we watched that. Also watched some other various TV shows, and I also introduced Amy to the game of Su Doku, which is one of the games in "Brain Age". My smart girl, she figured it out fast :) And our night of TV, cuddling, and Su Doku soon evolved into another wonderful night together...

But it was followed by a fairly sad morning...when I had to get to the bus to head back home...My poor Amy cried from it, and I was there to hold her... Neither of us wanted it to end yet... But we definitely will be getting together again... I just wish I knew when. Hopefully soon... We can't be apart for long...

And that...was the rest of the story.

Other update... Gameshow Marathon... Best frigging idea ever. Six celebrities play the most popular game shows of all time... The Price is Right, Let's Make a Deal, Beat the Clock, Press Your Luck, Card Sharks, Match Game, and Family Feud. So far, the first two have run... And they've used the original music and sets (or at least, exact copies thereof) for each game. I am telling you now... If they use the original PYL Big Board, I am going to FREAK. If they use the original Family Feud music and board, I will FREAK EVEN MORE.

So...that's it for now. Needless to say, I am a happy person.

The Encounter

Okay...so I said I was gonna post on Tuesday night. I lied. Sue me. :P

I wanted to post after Amy did...so now that Amy has, I'm gonna. :)

So, I left my apartment to head to Newcastle... That's an expensive cab ride, at least, compared to staying within Chatham... But I wouldn't have made it otherwise. I wasn't about to walk three hours to Newcastle with my bags :P

Bought my ticket, got on the bus... First inter-city bus ride, by the way... Wasn't too bad. In fact, I found some really nice scenes on the way... Note to self: Get license, get car, drive around, take pictures. :)

After three pit stops along the way, I finally got to Fredericton. Knowing that Amy was still about three hours away, I took a walk along Regent street... Just looking around, spending time. I ended up going to DQ and getting a large milkshake... That was a mistake. Those are *enormous* compared to anything I've seen from them before. I didn't finish it...which was a shame, because it was, like, $5. :P

Now, it *was* Sunday, so there wasn't exactly much open. I just had a look, then turned around and headed back to the bus station. Incidentally, I had brought my MP3 CD player... Played it for 5:40 hours without one song repeating. I just like saying that :)

Amy got off the bus...and I immediately knew it was her. I ran up to her and gave her a *big* hug... And we hugged several times right there :) She was with her friend Jamie, who I was also fairly glad to see, for the fact that she's the one who invited Amy to come to Fredericton with her.

So then we got to the Prospect Inn, got our rooms... I paid one night and Amy paid the other... We checked out our room, and dropped our stuff there... And I had my first kiss... Finally :) So, shortly after, we went to Jamie's room, and I met these crazy people that apparently Jamie likes to hang out with... I had no idea about them, and still don't, as I only saw them the one time.

It being fairly late now, me and Amy headed back to our room... I showed her a few things I brought along, and then we talked for a while... Talking turned to kissing... And, erm... Well... Let's just say that I left Fredericton on Tuesday without something that I went there with.

I'm gonna break this up into two posts, just to keep single posts from getting too long. I'll post the second half (be it my Monday and Tuesday there) a little later tonight.
