Now this sounds interesting. Just randomly thought you were screwing with them?

But if you want to, knock yourself out. Probably the only thing I really hate is being constantly being inundated with country music.

However, yesterday I almost lost it. A woman who is employed (volunteering?) with Stampede, in some sort of official capacity, came to my place of employ and went office to office in my entire building talking like an idiot and chastising everyone not wearing western get up.

It was "howdy pardner, can I get a yeehaw? How come you aren't wearing your cowboy outfit? You need to start showing some stampede spirit. Tomorrow make sure you come dressed as a cowboy" and so on and so forth. It was quite irritating. Listen lady, I'm not sure how you even got in the building, but get the hell out of my office, don't talk to me like you're John Wayne and I'm his 5 year old sidekick and definitely don't tell me how to dress in a condescending and judgemental tone.
Sounds like a Toronto transplant during her first couple of Stampedes. Calgarians don't give each other #### if they are not 'dressed up'. I own cowboy boots but don't wear them to dress up during stampede. I only use them for riding my horses so they are pretty dusty.

I'm wearing my dusty, dirty, worn laceups in my office as we speak.

The pizza is actually pretty good, the crust is one of the best.

However, it's just WAAAAYYY too much money.

The Thai Chicken pizza is finally back.

I can't justify paying literally double for pizza what I would pay anyway else though.

I like the pizza at Boston Pizza as well, but also agree it's a ridiculous price.

The Tuscan Pizza - delicious!!

Great white north, substitute the ham for pepperoni and wow! But agreed, BPs sucks but pizza is pretty great but overpriced. As long as you know what to expect going in, hard to be disappointed.

It stays open because it stays open.

I think the only time I go to BPs is when there are no better options.

Also because you can bring kids and still get leathered.

Did not know that was slang for getting drunk. Sounds more like what would be used to describe putting on a gimp suit.

As for a RGMG, why are there so many terms for getting drunk. Jesus, does everything need to be co-opted as a reference to getting drunk?

I grew up with a buddy whose parents were from the East Coast. And they liked to get leathered. At least with the drink, I cant comment on Gimp Suits.

One thing I will never miss about working on the road is BPs. When you're in small town alberta and given a food allowance, you eat more Boston Pizza than any one person ever should.

When someone asks you to help fix their phone and then keep wanting to take it out of your hands like they've got the kernel sanders secret recipe in there. I can't fix your god damn phone if you won't let me hold it for longer than 12 seconds.

Is this some sort of special popcorn seasoning?
