thank god everything is over, although this week will surely be busily spent doing things i put off for the plant celebration. on friday, a little after 5, we decide to push the leaning maypole to a more upright position. go figure that 3 of the ribbons would rip off the pole, due to the fact they were all pinned to the ground. fucking hell. so that definitely fucked things up. the dance went alright on saturday, but that all went to hell when this one lady decided to let kids from the audience weave the maypole ribbons for round 2 of maypole madness. little kids who have no idea what they’re doing trying to do something semi-complicated only leads to disaster. no one would admit defeat & they kept trying & trying to get it right. the audience even gave up after so long. oh well, who really cares, right?

then i peaced out for a bit for a volunteer appreciation luncheon. i know i mentioned that i was going to volunteer with c-net, but frankly, i haven’t done jack shit for them. i got a not so fun “assignment” that i never finished. but i went to the free lunch anyway. i ended up sitting at this table with this interesting old couple. remember in the movie cruel intentions when sebastian went to the old folks home & got stuck with the old lady who thought that they played backgammon & that she won 3 times? i swear i’m convinced that was the lady at the table with me. she looked & sounded just like her. well, since the food took almost an hour to get there, i had to run out as soon as i was done eating to get back to work. i was then stopped & given a certificate of appreciation while the volunteer coordinator girl announced to the 50 or so people about how great a volunteer i was. i got an award for doing jack shit. god i feel guilty. & now i totally feel obligated to do this work. tomorrow night no less.
