September 12, 2015 was one Saturday that truly kept me busy with way too many tasks and adventures. Normally, my days on a weekday or weekend isn’t that jam-packed, but the 12th is one I had to blog about for some experiences I do not want to forget. Plus, this entry is also for Georgie’s “A Day in the Life” linkup as an afterthought. Enjoy my very atypical day of busyness!
Being a Water Girl
I began my day by going to work. My colleague and I had to work at this special event for the kids in our community. It’s sort of like a mini-carnival with bouncy houses, games, foods, and et cetera. Our booth offered face painting, and I was the designated water girl, meaning I’d switch out the painters’ waters and go get more water when we ran out. That’s what I did for four hours. In between, I had some free popcorn and a fried catfish sandwich that was truly not worth my money. When we finished, I was exhausted, but then I had to rush off to meet Chibi Toaster.
Quick Stop at the Thrift Shop
Chibi Toaster and I stopped by the thrift shop for a very quick trip due to us arriving there five minutes prior to their closing time. Oops. Still, we quickly looked around. I headed for the men’s shirt section to see if there were any long-sleeved plaid shirts to get, and I found two I liked for $12! Yay for that!
Painful Spa Day
After the thrift shop, Chibi Toaster and I went to Philo Nature Spa. I opted to get the . . .
1) Hydro Refreshing Treatment Facial
2) Acne Facial
3) Regular Manicure
This is the first time I ever had a facial, and I was in for some painful surprises. First, I had no idea I had to get naked from the waist up. Second, the acne facial HURT when the lady popped out like 102810 blackheads. Third, most of the massages were PAINFUL. I never liked massages much, so the pain did not allow me to relax at all. Fourth, who’d have thought I’d get an armpit and a breast massage?! Let’s just say I didn’t mind the experience much, but the pain were not something I enjoyed, haha! My entire spa experience cost me $78 — $70 for the actual spa and $8 in tips.
When we finished our spa treatments, Chibi Toaster and I went to Dragon Hill Lodge to attend their Oktoberfest. We opted not to get the full platter. Instead we chose to buy one main dish, one side dish, and soda for $10. I chose to get the jaeger schnitzel, mashed potatoes, and root beer. It was quite bleh. I wasn’t impressed with the quality of the food and neither was Chibi Toaster. We’d done this last year, which was not that great then either, so this year’s experience made us decide not to do this ever again.
Ice Cream and Comic Inking
I decided that after my nasty catfish sandwich and Oktoberfest meal, I needed some chocolate almond ice cream to get the tastes out of my mouth. We headed to Sundae’s in Dragon Hill Lodge, and we stayed for a while. I enjoyed that greatly, and I watched Chibi Toaster do some comic inking. I even helped her take some photos of her in action.
Snack Shopping and Home
Finally, Chibi Toaster and I parted. I walked home because the weather was so nice and cool (yeah, no more summer!), and I stopped by the local supermarket to get some snacks. Then I finally made it home. I read The Mark of Athena for a bit, and then I crashed at 10:00pm. Thus ended my super busy Saturday.
