I only thought I could find such heart stopping greasiness in October during the state fair, but no, our department of agriculture is having a festival that's sorta like a mini state fair! YAY! One of my coworkers told me about it yesterday and since parking and admission were free, Pooka and I didn't have anything planned last evening, and I got paid from all 3 jobs, it made sense to me to go check it out. Being that we went right after I picked Pooka up from after school hardly nobody was there when we got there! Double YAY! Pooka was even fortunate enough to ride a few rides more than once on the same tickets because nobody was in line to get on next! I always love more bang for the buck! LOL!
At the festival I got to pet a camel and for the first time ever, I've seen a porcupine and a carabara (sp). They never have those types of animals at the state fair. That was pretty cool! They had some cut carrots in a sandwich bag for a buck. I got Pooka a bag and she had a ball feeding the animals. She said it tickled. Mommy took a pass on feeding the animals. LOL!
While waiting for Pooka to finish one of the rides I texted all my local peeps to let them know about the festival, for some reason the media didn't advertise it very heavy. I got some responses back asking when I was going and suggesting we go together. I felt kinda bad telling them that I was already there. If I gave it more thought I would have tried to make it a group outing. *shrug* However truth be told, it was hot as a summer's day in NC usually is and all I was interested in was having Pooka ride what she wanted, getting my corn, my deep fried something, and leaving. They didn't have my corn (darnit!).
On another note, I wish I was a different person sometimes. I say this because every time there is a holiday that I have off, I get paid incorrectly, in my favor! This has happened on at least 3 occasions and every time when I notice I was over paid I call the payroll lady and we correct everything. Normally the error is that I'm paid 8 hours for the holiday like the employees on salary, but I am part time and do not suppose to have that benefit. Okay, so Memorial Day came and went. I had that day off. Why was I paid 16 hours over what I was supposed to? SIXTEEN!!!!! LOL! I swear if I was another person I would have acted like everything was honky dory and kept my mouth shut, but I couldn't! *sigh*
This weekend I'm working, sleeping, and will catch a movie or 3. I want to see Drag me to Hell and Up 3D. Pooka wants to see Up 3D and Night at the Museum 2. Depending on how I feel me and Pooka may do a double feature together then I drop her off somewhere so I can see Drag me to Hell, we'll see.
Where this movie watching thing is coming from I don't know! LOL!
I'll have to blog about the weekend job on a later date. I am still learing and I have a feeling a few post will mention the residents in the home I'm in. :-P
