So yesterday Mandar, Pandora, and I celebrated both Christmas and my 23rd birthday. The kitty you see above is known as "Yappy Cat" for she yaps and she is a cat. She is always there to see us off and to welcome us home.
Anyways, it started out early morn at Pandora's house. She had bought me a shirt as well as Season 1 on the Tudors on DVD. For Mandar she bought him a Nightwish shirt and cheese popcorn. The shirts didn't come in the mail yet so we got printed pictures of what is to come. For her we bought a Twilight keychain and gave her Kirby Superstar DS and Big Brain Academy DS.
We left for Columbus toward the BD's Mongolian grill. On the way we were trying to find a Speedway for Pandora to cash in some of her points or something for a $20 gift card. So we got off at the Polaris mall exit (a place we were planning to go on the way home) hoping to find a Speedway. We didn't. But the mall was there and we decided to go to the "hippie store" as we call it (Tropical Trends). It was 11:23am and to our surprise nothing in the frickin' mall was open yet! So then we continued our way toward the Easton Mall.
At the Easton mall we ate at the Mongolian grill. Oh gawd it was so good. I put in my bowl shrimp, crab, noodles, corn, onions, mushrooms in a teryaki and fajita sauce. It was simply orgasmic.
The black lady that was our server was really nice, except when i asked her if I pay up front or to her and she replied, "you pay it to me!" with buckets of sass. The owner or general manager came out and talked to us a lot and she was really nice too.
Inside the mall we got some smoothies from Planet Smoothies. Mandar and I also got covers for our enV-2 phones so we can tell them apart. We walked about Hot Topic and GameStop. Then we went to Bath and Body works because they were having a sale that Pandora couldn't refuse. She spent 40 bucks in there on a some stuff and the bitchy lady gave her a huge fucking bag that was far too big for the few items she purchased.
Next Pandora had to pee really bad so I promised her that there would be a bathroom in the two-story Barnes and Noble. As we walked about her ginormous bag was knocking shit over everywhere we turned. Oh and apparently she was half naked in the bathroom when her phone went off as loud as could be. Haha, I'm sure she could tell it better.
Finally it was time for us to see our movie. Pandora had already seen Twilight but wanted us to see it as well. It was far better than I had expected. Granted, it was the expected dramatic teenage love story filled with mooshiness and cheese, but it was executed well.
Haha, I totally forgot. Before the movie we were shocked to see how many different types of food there was available at the food court. They had these pretzel bites with cheese that I was wanting but the fucking place was so packed that they sold out. The girl at the register, Autumn, was apparently overstressed or sleepy or something because I was afraid she was gonna pass out on the counter. Hell when I asked her how long it would be for more she practically slithered her way back to see without any strength.
After the movie we made our way back to Polaris which we arrived at about 5:15pm and which closed at 6:00pm. We had a few stops to make. First the hippie store, where Pandora bought a little Buddha. Next we went to the World Bazaar where we bought a beautiful statue of a Greek goddess.
It was now time for some dinner and I had to pee. We stopped at Sonic and ordered. The guy taking the order was both and rude and acted like he was stoned. I said, "we have two orders if that's okay," and he responded, "sure... why not." Well we get the food (which was delicious) and I paid in cash for Mandar and I's $16 bill. Pandora paid on her card her $8 bill. When she got her receipt she found that he had charged her $16 instead of $8.
Annoyed, we pressed the button and a nice girl came out to take the card and fix it. I knew something was wrong when the guy who took our order and the manager came out. First she was nice, she explained that they voided her first charge and charged her correctly. Then the shit hit the fan. She told me that I owed $8 now. I told her that I paid the full sixteen dollars in cash, I gave a ten, a five, and two ones and got back a handful of change. The douchebag was like, "no... you gave me a twenty." So I told her that he was wrong and was both rude and acted stone and she fucking freaked out. She went on and on and on about how dare I call him rude. She accused us of trying to get out off paying eight dollars like it was some amazing plan to cheat Sonic. She never paused for a second for me to even say a word. Finally, she gave back the card and left but not before warning us that if we dared call in and complain about the two of them then, and I quote, "we will put down a complaint against you!"
A complaint against me? To who!? I have never seen a manager freak out so much. What's worse is that all the idiot has to do is to stuff eight dollars in his pocket to make it look like we did cheat Sonic. What a fucking bitch. Thankfully a new Sonic is being built even closer to us this coming year.
Once we got back to Ontario we went to Wal-Mart and Meijer (because we had gift cards for both). I purchased Twilight the book so that I may read it. I've read a little bit and can tell her writing ability is very juvenile and full of repetitiveness. She broke the first rule of all writing which is that you never ever start a novel with a description of the weather. Either way, it's not Stephine Meyer's writing ability that sells her books, it her characters and her ability to tell a good story. I myself don't think that I am an amazing writer, but think that my ability to create three dimensional characters and to tell a great story is what carries my writing. So that I think Stephanie and I have in common.
So the twenty-fourth year of my life has now begun just as the year 2009 is at dawn. May there be many more blogs and Greek statues and far less bitchy red heads from Sonic.
