Sunday

So as on most Sundays, I worked in Busch Gardens again today. It was unbelievably boring. I was in the store called German Gifts. Here they sell everything from Cockoo Clocks to nut crackers, Christmas ornaments and Beer steins. The picture above is fromthe store. As you can see that Nutcracker is hugh - next to him are the store doors. You can buy this one for about $7000.
There were a lot of people in the park today but not many had the money to buy stuff at the store so the time did not seem to pass at all. Of course the fact that I was up until 5 am finishing homework and did not get much sleep did not help either.

One of my friends texted me the scores for todays games and their outcome was pretty much as I had predicted. The next round should be interesting Germany will have to step up if they want to beat Argentina and England will have to play a bit better to advance further.

As I was walking out of the park I checked my voicemail and had a message from one of my host families - something about an accident. So I called the hostmon back just to find out that the au pair ran a red light and got in an accident and the preceded to leave the SCENE!!!! The hostmom told her to go back and by then the cops were already there. So this week should be fun.

I met Grumpy at the bar were we first met for a quick dinner. I had hoped to run into one of my friends that I had not seen in awhile but she wasn't there. I had left her a message that we where there and she did call me as we left. It was nice to chat with her and we made plans for next week when I am off from school. I have to say I have been a terrible friend of late as I am always busy. So I will try to be better.

LOL! VERY happy!!! He even let me sleep in, didn't wake me up to make him breakfast! LOL. I actually slept in until 2:30 pm...we had breakfast at 3:30....I LOVE Sunday!!! Have to work some tonight, though.

Oh, no! I can't believe she left the scene!!! That's so wrong! Maybe she just got scared, how old is she?

Oh man I would love to be able to sleep until 2:30pm. Acutally I need to one of these days but my schedule is just to crazy there is always something. These days I am lucky if I get 7h sleep.

According to the hostmom they just went on and dropped of their friend and were going to drive home. She is 20 I think from Russia. Honestly I am not a big fan of the slavik au pairs as they have demonstrated time after time their lack of family values and are completely selfish. Both girls that I dealt with the last two weeks were russian and they do not care about the rules they have to follow. Both accident happened while the AP was not supposed to be driving there anyway.

This goes to prove my theory that I am the only person that should be allowed to drive.

I like the nutcracker, I wonder if I could fit him in my car. Probably not.

I can't believe she left the scene!! Why??????

Katy said...

Real - It depends on what type of car you have. It would fit into a small semi - like big U-Haul truck.

Cherry - I have no Idea what she tought but I will have a conversation with her if her host mom is not going to. Sorry that Australia lost, I was rooting for them.

Katy said...

I bet it is fun to be in Italy right now they are just as nuts about Soccer as the English and Germans.
