That's where Josh and I go now to get out and have fun. Especially on Tuesdays because it is Wing Night and wings are cheap. I get 6 medium wings and 6 Caribbean Jerk wings. Josh gets 6 hot wings and 6 other flavor wings. Tonight it was spicy buffalo. Then the entire time we play trivia. Tonight I was able to come in second, but Josh always comes in first. He's super good at trivia. He beat everyone in the restaurant by about 3000 points. I was behind him by about 2000 points. Maybe less because I got the last question perfect, even though I don't remember what it was. We also drink beer, and I drink slightly more because he drives. It's our favorite place to go. This time though I beat him by like 6 wings in eating them all. I don't know how, but I inhaled all of them. You have to be able to eat and play trivia at the same time...I guess I'm super good at that.
At work I totally submitted data to WQX Web in 2 hours!!! Last time I had to do it it took me three days. They changed the program around though, and it's easier to use, but no one told me about it. My fault really, I didn't attend the last conference call that discussed the changes. The guy I was submitting for watched the whole time on a web conference (he could see my screen) and was so happy I was able to help him. He said there was no way he could have done that himself, and I believe it. Not because he's dumb but because it's soooo hard and confusing and tedious and he has so many more duties than I do. I doubt he could have sat down and given it the attention it needed. Plus the website (part of the EPA, sigh) is not helpful. Neither is the User Guide. It does NOT answer any questions. It is not complete in its details. I only had to call the help desk once this time, and actually they didn't help.
The guy I worked with is from southern Alabama, and he had the cutest accent and kept on saying "No Ma'am" or "Yes, Ma'am." which I loved. I highly doubt I could ever say "ma'am" or "sir" in a serious way. I would only say those words to accentuate what I was saying like "NO SIR!" or No Sirrey Bob!" or something like that. It's because I'm from the north and we don't have manners like that. Plus, we lack the accent. I think it's the Southern Accent that helps pull it off.
It's been snowing here lately. Surprisingly no schools are closed and no one seems to care. Not that the snow is sticking or anything. It's closer to frozen rain than snow in consistency. It's not soft and fluffy but more like hard white balls. There isn't enough coming down either to build up if it wanted too. We don't have our heat on, and it's no colder than my parents house. I would even go so far as to say it's still warmer than their house in the winter. Ackbar loves it!
On Black Friday Ryan (sister-in-law) took us shopping at Kohls and we got a memory foam mattress pad. At first I was thinking we didn't reeeeaally need it, I just wanted it, but now it's amazing! It holds the heat like nothing else, so now I am warm underneath and above at night. I've never slept so well at night. Well, except that some medication I'm on raises my body temperature, so I'm not ever as cold as I used to be and sometimes I wake up because I am waaay to hot. I think I even came close to night sweats last week. The bummer is I used to cool off by putting an appendage outside of the blankets and have it hang off the bed, but Ackbar sits there all night and waits for it, and the second I stick even an elbow off, he attacks! With teeth! He does not like the new mattress pad, but that's fine because now we don't get kitty litter in bed.
