New Baby In Town

The Zhu’s from the Chinese restaurant just celebrated the newborn’s one month birthday – and like everyone who have a newborn son – they give out cigar to everyone.  I don’t mind the smell of cigar at all – as compared to cigarette – he said the camacho triple maduro buy online was found on the net – and he got the website address for me – so that I can get some for my customers on special occasions too.  So this Christmas, we can give out cigars to our male customers – but what about the ladies?  The spouse said to me – that some ladies smoke cigars too – haha!!  I know some do – but not many – definitely easier to shop for the male customers that’s for sure.  Maybe a potpourri candle or something along those lines.

The Competition Is Closing

Woohoo!! good news for us – looks like we may be the only video store in town soon – the competition down the road is closing its door in a week.   And to think that someone was thinking of making movies and video big at that store.  Poor Tim at E-One – burst your bubbles eh!   I feel bad for the people who worked there – but not for that Tim fella that’s for sure.  He must have thought that he screwed us up – when he pulled his movies and games out from us some 3 years ago – but see – we did even better.  Outlasted that big boys like Movie Gallery and now him as well !  Serves him and his ego right!

Where Did You Buy Your Console From?

I’m sure by now – you all know we have a wonderful town.  The other day – I received a call from this guy who asked if I knew anything about the xbox 360 that he just bought not too long ago.  He said he doesn’t have the 3 lights blinking on his console – but only one – so is there anything that can be done for it?  or do I know what is wrong with it?  The boss wasn’t around – so I wasn’t able to pass the phone.  But you see I’ve smarten up too – and asked me – where did he purchase the console – in which he replied – oh – at Zellers!   So I replied – well – give Zellers a call – maybe they can help – haha!  Once again – why do people feel that we need to help them – when they never bought the console from us?

Seafest Parade 2010

This year the Seafest Marshall is my favorite businessman – why can’t everyone be like Jim?  Nice and unassuming always polite and non-confrontational and always giving a good word and encouragement.  Oh and honest!  It’s hard to come by someone with such good quality – truth be told – i’m also striving to be like him.  But so hard when you’ve got some crazy demands from certain customers.  Thank God !  we only get a few of those every month.

This year seafest was very colorful – I’ll have to say – they even got Clements Park’s float and a lot of clowns – of course – the RCMP is not to be missed as well.  So the local town dispatch moved to our side of the town – did we see less loitering?  Yes – around Tim’s – but they moved upwards – thank God – they didn’t move up to our store – HAHAHAHAH!!! but really – i’m sure they meant no harm.

The good youth of the town was in the parade too – i saw quite a few of our customers’ kids in this parade – all grown up.  Even one of the boss’s cousin was in the parade giving out ribbons for MADD.

Woohooo!! Miss Canada International!!

The Seafest Queens – all dressed up – and all looking really pretty.

And our new MLA – Zach Churchill – it’s good to see the new MLA mingling  with the locals but i’ve yet to see him at our store and I’m still watching his every move – afterall, we did vote for him.

Love the pipe pipers – who doesn’t right?  makes me think of that story of the pipe piper. I do have more pictures of the entire parade – but I just wanted to share a few – to let you see what it’s like in this small town.  This year – i’ll have to say was pretty impressive – but the prizes that went out to certain float – makes me wonder.  But what do i know right?

Store Is Packed

The man is buying everyday – sometimes i cringed at the things he buys because i put myself in a customer’s shoe and I for one don’t mind buying used things – but if the previously used item is in rough shape then – i wouldn’t wanna buy it – sometimes I have sleepless nite worrying and need the  best sleeping pill to sleep at nite.  Like my grandmother used to say – the appearance is more important than the inside of a person – on first contact – so the same for any items one buys.

Even though acquired cheap – if it doesn’t move – no point at all.   I hate storing things – because it gets moved around and then forgotten – this is only a quarter of our store and you can see how packed things are.  And no we are not moving to Starrs Road yet – coz’ of how this town is currently and Dexter ain’t doing anything for us – just because we didn’t vote for a MLA he wanted (so the rumors go).   So yes ! packed and busy – really can’t complained but still don’t want to keep buying non-stop everyday.

Vacation Time

A good customer turned friend just came back from their  All inclusive family vacations .. to hand me some food he had picked up for me.. in the city, since I can’t get any here. While chatting, he had explained that he killed many birds with one stone on his trips. And one of them were passport for himself and his daughter. The reason why he was doing so was because he said he was always on a look-out for good deals for a vacation. And as soon as one does appear with the local travel agency, he would be all set and leaving for Mexico.

Yes.. one can get great deals .. going to Mexico.. and not only can one get to stay in unique beach resorts, enjoy the sun and the sea, you also get an all inclusive vacation for the whole family without any stress of planning your next meal, for all meals are included. Lots of programs and activities to enjoy but most importantly, you get out of the cold. . and get some warm .. and some fresh air and relaxation. We should start planning too.

Online Gaming

There must be hundreds of online casinos out there.. maybe even thousands. I strongly suspect that folks from the west plays their online game alot because of the cold weather. For us, we have like 6 months of cold, so what do one do in the cold weather…?? Definitely not wise to fight the blizzards.. or the windchill but most of us play a lot of online games and finding the best usa online casino is a must for those who loves the rush of winning and placing the best bets.

Our family and friends  plays online games every so often, afterall, there isn’t much to do in this small town of ours. One can’t be watching tv all day right, some stimulation of the brain is important too. So if you are into online gaming, check this free guide that helps US players find safe and fun online gambling destinations.  Whether you love playing poker or blackjet, they have the place just for you, plus you can also see what the payout rates are and get customer support on this site too.  Easy to use and safe to play.

Do You Have Any PC Games In Your Adult Room?

We own a video store as you all know.. and yes we rent and sell adult movies .. if you must asked/know.  Truly what’s the big deal about it right..?? you have it on cable.. and you get it online.. or even on TVs in certain channels after certain time of the night in certain countries.  But when you hear yer customer asking if we have any PC games in our adult (porn) room, I wanna tell him.. no .. we don’t but we have term life insurance instead.  I guess he would then feel the same way as I did.. when he asked that question.
