So, Jordan and I got the newest "Here and Now" version of monopoly, which has Canadian spaces (mostly ontario, of course, but including the Calgary Stampede!!!!), "new age"-type playing pieces (a segway!, a cell phone, flat screen tv...), and CREDIT CARDS! instead of cash! Anyways, as fun as the little credit card machine is, it's a very busy job being the banker!!! Because you have to take 2 cards everytime there is a transaction and it just takes up all your playing time! Anyways, I was thinking about how true to life that is! We think that by using credit (and debit) cards (in life, but I thought this about monopoly) we will eliminate the hassle that we get with cash, but the "easy way" takes X amount more work than using cash does! Sure, in life there are other benefits to using plastic over cash, but I just thought it was interesting and indicative of how life really works. I know it's lame... who thinks about real life and stuff while they're playing monopoly? Still though, I enjoyed it. And thanksgiving was very good! I had turkey on Sunday and steak at Jordan's house tonight! On a scarier note, there was a shooting up the hill from me today (apparently, I was in woodbine at the time), and one of the guys involved went to beaverbrook and RT with us.... so that's weird and scary and such. Anyways, I gotta go, it's VERY late (almost midnight) and I have to leave in 6.5 hours with Nattie!!!! Hooray!!!!
