My First Day at Work

I had an interesting day at the aforementioned temp job. It was really quite pleasant - the program for which I was shilling was really quite cool, and the teachers and parents in the school building were enthusiastic about it. The people - ATS Project Success - had a deal worked out where they were offering 40 hours of online tutoring for no cost to the parents. Pretty cool, no? If the program delivers half of what it promised - and there's no reason to think it won't deliver more than that - it can be more than a little revolutionary. Of course, that might just be the overly idealistic science fiction Star Trek-future loving me, but I'm willing to take that chance.

They expected me to be there for, like, two hours. There was enough "traffic" (people stopping by to talk) for me to stay all seven hours. I met some nice people, and some people who were quite cool at first but warmed up considerably when they realized that I wasn't asking them for any money. I could do that sort of thing more often, I think. It's an interesting scenario.

So, I went from there directly to barbershop, and I think that my quartet performed quite well in our last pre-contest performance - as did the chorus. It's going to be an interesting and fun weekend in Lima, Ohio, this weekend - not the least because it's a weekend where I will NOT be kicked regularly by a 3-year old snuggle buddy. The last couple of contests, I've spent most of the time sleeping... wouldn't be surprised if I did the same thing. What a wild and crazy life I lead... I head out to western Ohio for "vacation" to spend the time asleep. Oh, and I might spend a few bucks on CDs this weekend.

What can I say - I like to live dangerously!
