Yesterday was my day off, (since I work Saturday this week), and I went all around town! Actually I went to the two places I traditionally go, downtown and up by the university, but that’s almost all over town, right? YES, exactly, I’m totally right. ^_^
Due to issues which I’d previously mentioned about MUN, I was going to the university to REJECT THEM. I suppose I could phrase that as “withdraw my registration,” but hey, I was thinking of it as rejection on my part, so that’s how I’m going to write it down.
I find it very odd, the attitude of universities that they have to do nothing to win over their customers. Because that’s what students are- customers. And the majority of schools, or at least the ones I’ve dealt with, appear to see no need whatsoever for customer service. Speaking as someone who is CONSTANTLY having the need for making the customer happy drilled into my head at work, this just seems weird to me.
Maybe I’ve just been low on coffee whenever I talk to them.
ANYWAYS. I spent a small amount of time in MUN, and more wandering over to the public Library. Where I went in with the intention of dropping off all my books, and came out with 22 more checked out. It’s research, okay? STUDY PURPOSES?
Then in the evening I went to The Rooms, which is the provincial art gallery and museum, and offers free admission on Wednesday nights. They also offer the best hot chocolate I’ve ever had in my life. I mean, seriously amazing hot chocolate.
I’m going back next week for another mug of chocolate. And I’m so looking forward to it.

There was also an exhibit in the Museum about sea monsters. I totally knew all of the myths they were referencing.
Except for the Fudge Mermaids…
|I still have no idea what’s going on here.|
And yes, the main exhibit was a showing of Goya’s The Disasters of War and Los Caprichos. About which I have to say that the next person I hear refer to Napoleon as a folk hero and great man for the people, I’m going to smack them.
