Actually, it's Prestige Holdings that sux.
Arse.   Bitching ahead, so everything else is behind an LJ cut.  And there's a pic of me too.  Incentive!
Pic behind the cut )

Prestige Holdings runs the local Pizza Huts.  Very unfriendly to groups that want to use their facilities.

Apparently, for reasons known only to them, they don't want groups of folk unless they spend for the party room.  Which would be TT $450 PLUS a "service charge" of TT $ 75. Even if they aren't in the party room.

Yeah.  That is about US $90-$91.

This isn't the first group they've pulled this shit on.   A couple of the local social networking sites have had problems with them too.  Yes, the same branch.

Thing is, it's probably a cynical ploy to get more money on a Wednesday, since there aren't exactly large crowds at the "resturant" right now.

Fuck, the Chinese resturant in Tunapuna gives you far better service, the food is better and the place is cheaper.

Needless to say, we are looking for a new meeting spot.

Short disconnected bits, not particularly coherent. May refer to LJs read today, but not maliciously.

Hungry and headachey.

These Dave Chapelle episodes they are showing now should have stayed lost.

OTOH, Reno 911 is cool.

I am getting scarily addicted to Disney Channel programming - not good.
And I'm thinking that High School Musical was not as evil as the Disney name would indicate. The young''uns need their Grease equivalent.

All I saw the only time I watched the meerkat show was enough hanging balls to remind me of the Fark squirrel.

It's Thief.

I wonder what mobile posting is like.

Damn Sahara dust - me wheezy. On the plus side, no cycloney.

I need to watch the anime with the robot with the city on its back.

ooh. Live SNL next week - probably a farewell for Tina Fey and the Dratch.

My dogs are cute , but I worry about their diet. They like mangoes.

Ouch headachey. Bleah.

Work tomorrow. Must survive without brain glazing over.

Um. I worry about my sanity.

Each member of my Flist rocks for a set of different reasons. All of youse.

Yeah, even you.

Christmas from hell continues.

Have to find a vet (that works on a public holiday) first thing in the morning to see about a sick puppy. Sigh.

Cold is still with me. Still choking down big horse pill vitamin supplements.

Let me see

I have had the type of 24-hour period that in other circumstances would lead to police surrounding a shack, dead, bloody bodies and me going the fuck out in a blaze of glory.


Not enough sleep, and I feel like shit, both in my soul and in my heart. Physically, I probably look as if I'm brooding. Again, bah.

On the positive side, I finally got a decent video card for my gaming PC.

I get up with a sick feeling in the pit of my tummy, and I know it's because I have to go to work. And yeah, bad food reaction, so much wind. Haven't figured out the food yet. And with the tired.


Hugs the flist. Hope all who are sick *looks in the direction of Atlanta* get better quickly.

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of thorns
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here

What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way

They used this music for the Eddie tribute video. The Johnny Cash version. My eyes watered.

Eddie was more than a great wrestler (yes, GREAT. Up there with Flair, Angle, Chris Benoit, even Kermit (hawk, ptui). Mount Perpetually Over, to quote Eric S.). Most importantly, he was a great person and a huge inspiration to the other wrestlers. JBL, Dave. Made them look good. Credible. The great ones can do that, you know. And make it look easy. Make a broomstick look like a maineventer. Make someone with potential look like a superstar. Eddie had talent in spades. Had his demons too, but he beat them back. Having beaten them back, he fulfiled his potential.

For the first time in months, I could not make it out of the door to go work. Explosive... well, Divali was yesterday, and I had a roti. Apparently it had pepper/wasn't good.

My poor stomach. And other tender body parts. I now remember why I buy Charmin when I get the chance. Ouchies.

Was even too damn sick to go online for most of the day, and I gotta replenish the generic Lomotil.

Tried to upgrade some memory, was greeted by the wonderful smell of burning silicon...

Lost: one stick of RAM. 512 MB. NEW. Nice burn mark on it. Will make a good keychain.

Lost: one DIMM slot on my motherboard. It got fried. FRIED. I can see where it melted.

Gotta search for a new board on the Monday. Grrr. Dunno how long this board will last.
Plus replace the RAM stick that got burnt...
