I don’t have much to say today. I’ve toned down the angry and am once more at peace. I’m blaming the combination of history and sociology classes and WC hours. There’s only so much injustice and hate that you can deal with before getting angry and ranting.
Today however, was a quiet day. I am officially the Pride Treasurer for next year. Apparently I managed to get 13 of the 18 votes cast. That still means five people didn’t vote for me so I’m going to have to find them and share a stern word with them. I’m kidding.
Also contributing to my lighter than usual humour, I found someone new in the WC to indulge my childishness. No, it’s not Ian. Actually, this time, it is in fact a child. One of the members brings her young (possibly four year old) daughter to the meetings and I spent a good amount of time keeping her entertained. Although, I will admit, it was totally mutual. We played drums on a kiddie pool (actually beating on the penguins and flamingos) and then we built a fort. For whatever reason she insisted on calling it a garbage can. I think it’s because it was essentially made of random crap. But anyway, we’d just say she was lost in the garbage. But not bad smelling garbage. I had to check for myself. The fort suffered several earthquakes in which the roof and wall fell down but thankfully, sheets of bristle board don’t seem heavy enough to keep a trooper down. We played drums some more and of course, I mimicked her which she thought was insanely fun mostly because I couldn’t. I still can’t figure out some of the crazy stuff she was doing with her arms. That kid is flexible. Scary flexible. But then she had to go home and I was bored. I think she was a little sad. Maybe a little. The important thing is that I have a new best friend.
And how on earth can you have a crappy day after that? I mean really? It’s not possible.
In other news I checked my schedule and I am in fact going to read at the writer’s group thing in April. I don’t know what I’m reading but I’ll think of something. There’s still time. Smileyfreak asked if I would post whatever I decide to read. I suppose I could. It’ll probably be longer than a usual post but if you want to read it, I’ll post it. Maybe I’ll start posting stuff I’ve already written for the class and poll all you unfortunate readers to help me pick one for April.
We’ll see how lazy I get in the coming days. I’m swamped with school work right now... can’t wait for the end of April. It’s coming!
