Hi. Sorry I didn't write on Thursday night. I was up crazy late doing stuff. Then, Friday morning, I got up crazy early. I was functioning on about four and a half hours of sleep.
Patricia and I went downtown quite early Friday morning to take care of some business. Once that was done, around 10:45, we had the rest of the day to ourselves. We walked around the downtown for a spell and had lunch at the Hali Deli on Agricola Street. I am not sure if I will ever go back.
The food was fine, but I am puzzled about the place. It is a sort of Jewish deli, but yet, you can order bacon and eggs on the menu. Not exactly Kosher. And I thought that actual Jewish deli's did not serve milk products. Like, you can't get a cheese burger at an authentic Jewish deli. Maybe I am wrong about that last part. Feel free to correct me.
I am not happy about the service at the place. Our server was busy and wasn't goofing off or anything, but when I told him that I needed a detailed receipt, he just said that the slip of paper that had the amounts of the items recorded on it was all they offered. He did write the name of the place on the cheque, along with the date, so that is something. I ended up leaving a much bigger tip than I should have. I will carry that regret to my grave.
There are plenty of people who can expense their meals, on a regular basis. Occasionally, I can too, due to my freelance work. When that does happen, I need a detailed receipt spelling everything out that was purchased. I don't think it is too much to ask. Especially in this day and age.
The Haligonian Cafe and Bistro across the street is much, much better. We should have gone there.
Anyway, Patricia and I made our way to the Wal*Mart in Bayer's Lake. She needed to pick up some things. I got some more of the shaving soap that I use. Less than two dollars a bar, and lasts me 6-8 weeks, or even longer if I go for the scruffy look.
We returned home mid-afternoon. I kicked back and relaxed and slept for a few hours. We spent the evening here at home watching the tube.
Tomorrow is a bit up in the air. Nocturne is at night. Gotta see that, weather depending. There is a farmer's market at the Halifax Forum. Never been to that one. And the Forum is also playing host to a semi-annual massive book sale. Never been to that, and they have been holding this book sale twice a year for quite a few years now.
I should also put in an appearance at the archives. I need to start work on another true crime case for Frank.
I think I will turn in. Looks like a busy day tomorrow.
See you then.
