So a new budget was proposed for the Canadian people today. They actually want to put the Government in deficit to help stimulate the economy and help keep or create jobs for the people. I'm all for that, because honestly what does the Government need a surplus for if it means people losing jobs.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the staring stagiaire as he has now been unaffectionately nicknamed was given a new task. Since he can't focus his day without staring at me, we unceremoniously dumped a whack of dirty keyboards, video cables, extensions, null modem cables and mice for him to test if they work and if they do clean them thoroughly. The look on his face was priceless.. I had to run off and giggle myself silly. I was able to work in peace this afternoon as he finally had too much work on his hands to waste his time staring.
During my break today, instead of doing my blog hops, I went shopping on Amazon. After watching the show True Blood and seeing that it originated from a book series, I decided to check it out. They were having a special on the boxed set at $39.99. Not bad for 7 books! I also ordered a new copy of Lord of the Rings as the copy I have had for 27 years now is finally toast. No book collection is complete with out a little Tolkien. For the final purchase, I bought a book of sheet music for Supertramp. I've always liked this group and I love the piano playing, so, I'll be able to try it myself.
Now, I must eat and see how badly Laoch is killing me in Wordscaper.
