i'm a potato and i'm so hip...

a selection of random thoughts...

i was in safeway today, buying treats for my brother as it's his birthday today. technically, they are not from me, they will be from 'goober'.

'goober' received this from my brother for his birthday. i felt it was only right for 'goober' to give him a present back.






when i finally picked out the right dessert, the bakery lady had trouble with one of the tarts, so she said, that's it. they are now 2 for one. too bad, these are not something i would eat.



i went to the "big" library the other day and i wanted to take a picture of the signs they had on all the stalls there. however, since there were people in the washroom, i had to control myself. the signs were pink with huge fonts and said.. do not stand on the toilets. this must be a big issue if they have signs on all the stalls. i had no idea people went to the library and stood on the toilets.

i went and saw a band play tonight. (i'll blog more later on that) i decided to treat myself. i love this place. i only ordered the small. the guy behind the counter was are you sure? and i'm like yah. i should have listened to him. i ate a good portion of the fries on the way home and did not have nearly enough to dip into the garlic mayo. oh, and he forgot to charge me. but i was good and let him know.

ok, i'm tired now. tomorrow you can all hear about how freaked out i am about my new job.

have a good friday everyone.

Why would they stand on toilets except to see over into the next one...

Bizarre post, I'm laughing and I'm not sure why...

I wish MY library would post do not stand on the seats signs, because when I am at the library I always forget that you aren't supposed to and I shamefacedlt find myself standing on the seat - yet again.

Those tarts are totally something I would eat! In a heartbeat.

Looking forward to hearing about the band.

leazwell - welcome to my bizarre world.

i have no idea why they would stand on the seats. and since the signs were so big and so pink, i assume this must be a big issue for them. i could vaguely understand it in a bar, but a library?

barbara - oh so it's you that these signs are for!

personally, i'd rather see big ass signs that said ...do not pee on the seat.

i know, most people would love these tarts. i understand that i'm the freak.

I had no idea standing on toilets was such an issue at the library. Interesting.

Hmmm, fires. I think I might go for fries under the bridge tonight.

Hope you're less freaked about the job and enjoying Friday!!

Sign I once saw in a Richmond, BC washroom: "cameras are for research purposes only".

Yeah, I looked. Everywhere.

Why would you stand on the toilet seat at the library? I don't get it, well people are weird! I'll have to look next time I'll go at the library. I'll let you know if I find that kind of signs

whitenoise - creepy. i'm going to be afraid to pee in richmond from now on.

evelyne - people are definitely weird.

OMG garlic mayo dip is the BEST with fries! Do you go to the Belian Fries place on the drive? mmmm. Those fruit tarts look good, but I rarely buy deserts covered in fruit...I usually go for the chocolate stuff. BTW, the chocolate checkered mousse cake at Safeway is SOOOO GOOD!

I Love goober's cake, so awesome. Happy bday Brother of 668!!!

mel - i haven't been there for awhile. i used to go there a fair bit because i had fellow garlic mayo potatoe freaks who lived in the hood. but they've moved out now.

i would never buy something with fruit for me. i'm all about the chocolate. my brother laughed when he saw the tarts in the fridge. he knew they weren't for me!

That is one weird library you got there. Here the Oak Bay Library had a big sign posted on the garbage can in the women's can that read something like, "To whoever is putting their empty liquor bottles in our garbage can, stop now. We don't appreciate it."

ha ha, see i could understand having problems with standing on toilet seats if there was alcohol involved!
