Smithers climb into the Spruce Moose!
Finally all of my money problems have been solved- in the form of legalized gambling. I made $75 today at the Niagara Fallsview Casino.
I'm not really much of a gambler actually (compared to the rest of my family especially) mostly because poverty prevents me from spending any more than $20 on any given day. But it was sort of a family outing (which is a little sad when you think about it), so I thought I'd give it a whirl.
The Casion is pretty cool actually. It's one of the cleanest buildings I've ever been in. There are stores in there with skirts that are worth more than all of my clothes put together.
There's a really cool fountain where the entrance is:
And during the day they have this dude stand around painted head to toe in gold pretending to be a statue. My dad talked me into going over and giving him a tip. The golden man blew me a kiss, which I think is reasonable for a dollar. I wonder what would have happened if I'd put a fifty in there...?
I love Southern Ontario. I miss school though too... is there any way of relocating everyone I care about to one convient location with a reasonable climate? sigh, maybe when I'm a rich stage actor :P
