Captain’s Log 4,450
I’ve been way too busy for human endurance these last few days. Checklist:
Started a planning grant for a $350,000 project (AutoSymphonic)
Stuffed 200 goody bags for the big car show on Sunday.
Wrote a speech for the big car show on Sunday.
Examined two proposals to replace the flooring in the museum with upscale materials (bids were $500,000 – $650,000). Kinda pisses me off since the Confederacy thinks the staff should get $20 Starbucks cards instead of yearly raises. But that’s another story for another damn day.
Presented at a national seminar (with two Steampunk makers)
Attended the seminar all fookin’ day (from 7:30 AM – we left the happy hour gathering around 6:30 PM)
I be a tired pirate. I have a lot to do today too. I meet Big Sister Mia for breakfast. Then, I need to take care of some insurance needs. Then, it’s off to the bookstore to pick up her order. Then we go to La Jolla to file medical records. I am squeezing in a cut/color with Joanie after that. I certainly hope nobody wants me to do anything later. Tomorrow will be a day from hell. I pick up staff members at 5:00 AM to start setting up for the big car show. I won’t get home until around 4:30 in the afternoon.
And people wonder why I love staying at home and reading books. There is nothing like the sense of sanctuary to bring things back into perspective.
Unless it’s creative. I really like doing that. I never get tired when I’m involved in a creative project. I joined a small community theatre group as their marketing/publicity person. I don’t have the time right now to perform or direct, but I can certainly crank out press releases for them. It’s fun! They are a great group! Intelligent and way left of center. The discussions over coffee are very rewarding.
I also joined a book club! Meeting a few hours each month fits my schedule quite nicely. I haven’t actually attended a meeting yet. September was cancelled for some reason, but the group starts up again in October.
October – the month of Halloween fun.
