Cherries & Casino

I got the 2-pound container of Rainier cherries at Costco last week. They’re good, but they’re not as good as whatever brand Safeway has these days. But even the worst Rainier cherry is way better than a bing.

We had a staff meeting at the casino today, and got some big news. Though they first prefaced it with small news, mainly that we’re going to have contractors coming around shortly to put in bids to paint the walls and replace the carpet. Which is good. But then the big news — as of next Wednesday, we go from a toke-pool system to a “Go for your own” system. Instead of everyone putting their tips into a central pool, then divvying it up by hours worked, now you keep your own tips. There are going to be some other changes, but that’s the big important one. It’s scary and cool all at the same time.

I scooted there, and I can make it the whole way on roads that are 35mph or slower in around 40 minutes. Not too awful on a nice-weather day. I get to go back tomorrow and pick up my first ever casino paycheck. HEE!
