Jobs....


My first job was as a dish pig washer at a fabulous Fine Dining Indonesian restaurant in Waterloo. Still my very favorite place for food.
I'll use any excuse to go there, and I realize it's been MONTHS and I am craving the delicious Chang-Mai curry sauce more than ever right now!

What I don't miss- is this:


The above : New Years Eve circa (I think) 1997-98.
I would have been freshly 19 and ready to go rip it up (my nickname there = RIPTA) at a bar afterwards.
Probably Phil's - which featured $2 drinks, bottles or rail.

I apparently wore my NYE outfit to work that night so that I could quickly get out of there, once all the work was done.

I found this on the owner of the resto's flickr account.

Oh the humanity!

Very cool. Still, I think I would never want to return to 19, again. It was fun when I was there. Now, I have better things to do...

Good times!
