North AMERICA [Sep. 7th, 2007|11:34 pm]
[Current Mood |frustratedfrustrated]

Ergh. So we went to Sobey's tonight to get some stuff. They have security tags in all of their shopping baskets! That just made me feel dirty (in a not good way). I can understand magnetic brakes on shopping carts, but shopping baskets? How hard is it to ask someone not to take the basket through checkout??

I'm also irritated right now because I can never get the e-reader to work easily (even when following a faq), and I got my new e-cards today, so I am wanting to try them out. *frown*

I did see an awesome movie. It's called Freedom Writers. It's sort of like Dangerous Minds, but is based on a true story. I am planning on reading the book.

Everyone is going to be away this weekend. I am trying to make plans with my friend Jess, but who knows if that will pan out.

With the way I am feeling right now, I don't know if I'll be making cookies or going out tomorrow after all. *sigh* Today was rather good up until now. I got my e-cards in the mail today, even though the envelope was trashed. (I'm keeping it to show my aunt.) I've never received damaged mail before, so it's a milestone or something. I did get the other two kinds of chocolate ships that I wanted, so I'll be making my "confetti" cookies... whenever I rack up the energy.

I made supper tonight since Ed cooked for the past two nights. I think he will probably be painting the fence tomorrow (unless it rains) and Elaine has a sermon to work on.

I've been doing a lot of music editing with Audacity. It's a great program, especially for freeware. I also wrote an inquiry to Robert Munsch, but I'm not sure if or when he will get back to me.
I now have over 50G of music on my iPod.

Okay, well if I think of anything else, I'll be sure to bitch about it here.

American security is low tech: a couple of camera's and some illegal Mexican immigrants bent on getting an opportunity to harass a white shoplifter. It happened to me once. I walked out with a piece of chocolate and Pablo thought that it was ok to grab me, slap me in hadncuffs and strip me of all my possessions as he went through it. He then rambled on about getting my shit packed in. It was straight out of "Training Day".

Well, quite a few stores in Finland have security tags in their shopping baskets... It's never bothered me because I don't think I've ever seen someone attempt to take their basket through checkout.

Hope you have a nice weekend! *hugs*
