Guess who I saw yesterday?? My Hot Access Calgary driver, after what… six plus weeks since I last saw him? Geez. I was starting to think Access had hit the “blacklist this driver” button instead of the “wonderful review” button after I called in last time to compliment him. Anyway, I had decided that the next time I saw him I would coyly slip him my number and suggest meeting for a coffee sometime, but it turns out I didn’t need to. It came up that our birthdays just happen to be on the same day (he is exactly one year younger than me) and he said “well, I’m not much of a drinker, but I think we need to go drink and celebrate that!” so we’re going out! Woo hoo! I also found out he tried to email me about a month ago or so, but I must have deleted it among all my spam or something… he said the subject was “test” and his “from” name is something silly and not his own, so I very well could have overlooked it. Oops. That won’t be happening again.
(I am being MUCH more composed about this in my blog than I have been in real life, yesterday you couldn’t peel me off the ceiling, but you never know who’s reading and I must stay cool ) One date. It’s one date Donna, that is all.
Thursday night I went to a fantastic show! In Klezskavania at One Yellow Rabbit Theatre Projects. It stars a bunch of great actors/singers/dancers and The Plaid Tongued Devils. It was the single most politically incorrect show I have ever seen in my life! I laughed my ass off the whole night. It was so… well, like the write-up says, bawdy. There were so many hilariously twisted lines to which I kept thinking “I have to remember that one!” but of course I don’t. One that comes to mind because we groaned so loudly, was when reciting the dinner specials, Leo says “the baby seal on ice is freshly clubbed”. Ohhh it was two hours of insanity. A seedy nightclub owner, his Vampire wife, their born-again son, the Devil, a totally hot dancer whose flexibility even turned me on, and Vladimir the nose-less hero. “I look forward to showing you my collection of revolting habits”. Ahahaha maybe I’ll test that line out on my date.
Work has been really busy lately of course, with year ends and taxes. I am still waiting for two clients to bring me their stuff for the first quarter of 2005 that includes two GST returns due April 30 as well as their three complex personal tax returns, so they better get their asses in gear. I’ve been getting calls for business plans that I’ve had to put off until May so I hope I haven’t lost them for good. Not that I care, really… business plans often become more of a headache than they’re worth… people don’t like paying for them and it’s a much bigger project than they ever expected going in. Business plan guy from back in December still owes me over $600. I swear, I am going to start asking for at least a $500 deposit before I even get started and once I’ve used up $500 worth of time, get another deposit before I go any further. I do as good of a job as the companies that charge about $20,000 for a business plan so they can just quit they’re whining when the most I’ve ever charged is about $1500.
My mini sunflower garden is growing but I don’t see how an official sunflower can result from what I see right now. Time will tell, I guess. I’m just happy that I’ve kept a plant alive for this long. There is a reason all the flowers in here are dried and the plants are fake. Yessum.
So, not much to write about, that’s my life lately, work with a couple exciting interruptions. Next week I’m only working out of the home one day, giving me lots of time to get after the dilly-dallying clients, stare at the phone, lunch with my favourite new client, and hope for the greatest birthday weekend ever!
