Friday

Friday started out pretty badly, became even worse during dinner, and became very, very wonderful by the time it was time to go to bed.

Usually, my mom and I spend Friday nights at home waiting TV and eating pizza since my dad gets sleep before he starts his second job. This time, we decided to go to the seafood buffet at a local hotel. The service was horrible. It took our wait person ages to clear our plates and fill our water glasses. Other wait staff filled her duties, but it included being lazy; they reached over the wall to clear our plates instead of walking around the wall. It made me want to say, “If you want to take these plates, you will walk around the wall.” There was a party of about eighty people who were sat at one time. Each of them went up to the buffet at the same time, and they took all the food. There was no fried shrimp left, so I waited a good ten minutes for a new batch to come out. The manager mocked me by saying something to the extent of, “Yay, shrimp!” My mom paid for dinner with her gift certificate. The waitress almost screwed herself out of a tip since she had to get the remainder of her gift certificate as a gift certificate, rather than getting cash back. Of course, it still expires when the original one does, and it will be mailed to her.

The good thing that came out of dinner? I get to see Jameson over the Christmas holiday. 🙂 My dad doesn’t know that my mom paid for the entire vacation; he thinks Jameson pulled through for me. I have a secret: I’m scared to fly.

Waking Up Early Paid Off

Waking up early this morning paid off. I went online to register for classes the minute my registration window opened, and I got all the classes I wanted. I’d wake up at my normal time, but two of the classes I wanted to take, both online, were almost filled to maximum and I wanted my seat.

Here’s my schedule for next semester, provided nothing gets canceled or changed:

Medical Terms Tuesday
9:00-10:50
1/10/2006-2/28/2006
Intro to Practical Nursing Thursday, Friday
1:00-2:50
1/12/2006-2/3/2006
General Psychology Wednesday
6:00-8:50
1/11/2006-5/10/2006
Writing & Research Monday
1/9/2006-5/8/2006
Anatomy & Physiology Tuesday, Thursday
5:00-7:20
1/10/2006-5/11/2006

As you can see, I’ve put myself all over the board as far as days go, just to get myself out of the house. But how I’m going to get to the other campus for Anatomy and Physiology is still a mystery to me. It’s at the other side of town, and I’ll have to deal with the beginning rush, especially when spring comes around.

Osseo Police

After reading through the local paper this morning, I decided to inform people reasons you can get pulled over in Osseo, MN, and the possible outcomes of being pulled over:

Reasons You Get Pulled Over
Not wearing a safety belt
Speeding
Failing to signal
Loud exhaust (this happened to Jameson)
Out-of-state vehicle
Careless driving
Semaphore violations
“Suspicious driving” (Evidently, parking your car at night with parking lights on and leaving it running while you deliver a pizza is “suspicious driving.”)
Equipment violations
Objects hanging from a rear-view mirror

The Possible Outcomes…
You get a ticket for the same reason you were pulled over in the first place.
You have a warrant out for your arrest. They arrest you and impound your vehicle.
You have no insurance. They give you a citation and impound your vehicle.
You have no driver’s license. They arrest you or give you a citation and impound your vehicle.
You have an out-of-state driver’s license and discover you have no Minnesota license when you should have. They give you a citation and impound your vehicle.
You’re drunk. They arrest you and impound your vehicle.
They’ll find that you did nothing wrong and make you sit in your car until they find something to cite/arrest you for.

This list will be updated as I find the time and stupid “excuses” for those damn pigs.
