Last night was my first volunteer session at the local community radio station. We were expecting 6-10 inches and the prospect of a two-mile walk nearly kept me at home, but I’m glad it didn’t. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but by the end of the session I was super psyched. I think I’m going to be starting as an assistant librarian in the music library and might also do some sound editing for promos.
During the course of the night, I developed a mini-insta-crush on no less than three people, one of whom is a graduate student in the Astronomy program. I’m apparently going to have to start going to all of the Astronomy school events in hopes of running into him again.
I’d settled myself in for a serious Snow Day today. The schools are closed and anybody with sense is hiding under their blankets and drinking hot cocoa. Unfortunately, my stash of groceries was limited to two eggs and when I scrambled them this morning, I added heaps of what I thought was garlic powder but turned out to be garlic salt, rendering them inedible.
Just when I thought my day was doomed to be food-free but toasty, my friend Jennifer called and asked if I wanted to meet at a coffee shop for some cookies and side-by-side reading. I told her she was crazy. She said that she was planning to ski to the shop. I told her she was super crazy.
Twenty minutes later, I was somehow waiting by the side of the road for the bus.
I have two interviews tomorrow and my writing group meets for the first time this weekend. Please send crossed-fingers and happy thoughts in my general direction.
