I HAVE A JOB!
I was rather rudely awoken at around 9.30am this morning, after a fairly heavy night on the Morgan’s 100 (50% Morgan’s Spiced, fact fans) with a phone call from Blacks, asking me to go for a second interview. The Blacks job fair required me to get up at 6am so I was pretty happy that it was at least slightly worth the effort.
Anyway, I now have a job behind the bar in their restaurant, which means the waiters programme drinks orders into some computer, I make the drinks, they come and collect them. Sounds pretty good huh? Wage is pretty low but I can apparently make up to $100 a night in tips as I get 1% of whatever the servers take. So yeah, pretty stoked right now to be honest.
I’ve been too hungover to properly celebrate at all, apart from buying some over-priced hot dogs for a treat for lunch, but tomorrow night’s the night apparently. Hopefully I’ll be able to get my pass sometime very soon and be up on the mountain, finally. In the meantime I’m just going to wander round the town looking at all the sweet shit I’m gonna buy when my paychecks come in. Did you know you can get salopettes that look like jeans? Gotta get me some of those.
And so we are now getting to grips with “Shoulder Season” in Whistler - which basically means there is fuck all going on, apart from a bunch of Japanese school kids wandering around which is pretty disconcerting.
- We have a house! Photos will be up on here as soon as we actually bother to move in - currently struggling with a lack of bedding at said house and reluctance to leave the hot-tub and shag-pile carpets of our current, temporary abode.
- I have bought my first pair of skis! I picked them up in a car park outside a supermarket in a transaction that couldn’t really have looked more like a drug deal if we tried. Still, 70 bucks, can’t really argue.
- Haven’t been mauled by any bears yet.
- Still haven’t got a job. But all hope is not yet lost.
Document Insert #1: Wildcat Strong
First in a series of notes documenting the beers we try over here, obviously. Wildcat Strong is 6.1% and tastes pretty good. Cheap too. Stay tuned for the next in the series: Pabst Blue Ribbon.
