An agreement to meet in Vegas from shank and a nickel will get you a nice hot cup of jack squat

Don't know the exact dates, but I have a few friends going to see the Habs in Vegas. Thinking about tagging along... but skipping the Habs game.

My wife started a new business venture of selling shampoo and hair care stuff. So far it has only resulted in her buying a shitload of products. I'm going to need a raise just to stay even.

I spent some money I don't have on some Black Friday clothes sales, then got my Red Wings re-soled and then booked a flight to Toronto in the spring.


I'm still unemployed.

You're in Lethbridge right? What kind of work are you looking for/qualified for?

If your gal is at UofL, she might have access to the school job board. I use it from Calgary for all my co-op applications and the full-time permanent job section usually has lots of jobs in Leth. If she doesn't let me know what you're looking for and I could try to send postings to you somehow.

This is the link if she wants to try logging in without asking her bosses how to access a job board: https://careerbridge.uleth.ca/home.htm

There's always lots of ag business jobs on there, and usually tons from social work or charity type positions.

I'm in communications/marketing/PR. I've applied for probably a dozen jobs here, had I think seven interviews and the job always goes to an internal candidate or recent (cheap) grad. Applying for a few more, but it might be time for a career change or go back to school.

Yeah I could see that being tough down there. Just quickly browsing the board the Lethbridge Symphony is looking for a marketing/social media volunteer. Unpaid but symphonies are usually good for connections.

How's NHL 18? I think I will buy a Nintendo switch in the new year. I've thought about it a lot.

I bought a SNES Classic and routinely own Frau Artillery at two-player Tetris (hacked-on), aside from that I never really do video games anymore.

After having a SNES Classic for about a month, I finally cracked it open over Thanksgiving weekend and played the Zelda game a few times. Neuartillery gave me everything I need to hack it but I haven't hacked it yet.

congrats on all your video games and property and fleece jackets

i spent $10 on pucks at the Oil Kings game on Saturday night for one of those "chuck a puck" contests where the game ends and everyone in the stands throws pucks toward the ice and the closest one to the centre ice dot wins $250

mine didn't go anywhere close and Stace hit a little girl down in the 2nd row in back of the head with hers, guess we shoulda moved down
