When Will I learn? :)

Today was an interesting work day. It was our Mission Day where all the faculty and staff got together and listened to some keynote speakers. At the table I was seated, were 4 HR folks and 3 physics professors. Here's what I learned from those folk... There is no God in Physics. One professor was fascinating to watch. He just squirmed and wiggled around the entire 4 hours. He was so uncomfortable. When we had our 2 rounds of table discussions, both times he was unhappy with the discussion. He had a very strong belief about what is rational and logical and spirituality did not fit into this. It was very interesting in the grand scheme of things.

I had a doctor's appointment at 3:00 downtown so at 2:15 (closer to 2:30) I booked out of the office and down the hill. Slightly mundane, I know.

I came home and changed immediately. I apparently can go for an entire 2 weeks without doing laundry, but the clothing I'm stuck in by day 12... not my favorite. The waistband of my pants has rubbed one of my sides raw.

Reheated some left overs, sat on my ass and then it was time for my other meeting of the evening. I headed down to Belltown for a meeting about the Seattle Paint Out. This is my 3rd year doing it. I decided this year I would participate in the planning instead of just showing up, so I am now the First Hill Lead. This may be quite a bit of work. AND there will be solicitation for donations, which is my least favorite thing ever. But it is good to challenge myself. Get out of the 'box.' (God I hate that damn corporate phrase!) We'll see how it all pans out over the summer. I told Matt that I will help him any way I can for his new job. That'll be my one gay project this year (usually I dodge volunteering for the gays). Between my paint out project, the various summer projects I do, my Sunday adventures et al... this should be a busy summer! :)

Ha! You called him Matt.

And, in revenge for that, I've spent my morning spray painting graffiti all over First Hill. Oh, and calling everyone I know telling them not to support the Paint Out because it's part of the President's plan to privatize everything.

So there.
