I went to the awards ceremony last night to get my award certificate. I'm still not sure what it is for. The ceremony itself was clearly a chance for politicians to get some face time. After the speeches the MC started to wrap up the meeting and had to be reminded that the point of us being there was to hand out 90 awards.
The two hour awards ceremony started fifteen minutes late, ran 45 minutes and ended. Then the award certificates were handed out en masse and in confusion while the area around the refreshment table became non-navigable. I probably could have scored a piece of cake but the sandwich trays could not even be seen from my closest vantage. I suppose I could have gone up to the balcony and peered down to see them. What point? I left with my certificate with my name misspelled. wee.
I bought shoes today for the first time in 2 years. My old $20 Kmart shoes were due to be tossed a year ago but now my feet touch the floor.
Yes, I bought Crocs. Not the first version with the holes but the newer leather upper ones.
In spite of my pun, I like them so far. Marshall's had them for $20 so I got them. I'll skimp on lunches for a few days.
I got the shift I wanted in my class's first shift bid. I'm sure it helped that I wanted weekdays off not any weekend days. I didn't plan it this way but I had made it known that I would like Wed and Thurs off for recurring medical appointments. Then on my last break I had to take a nitro and extend my break. Nitro is not a recreational type drug. You feel like crap for a while but the elephant on you chest wanders off in search of peanuts so its worth it
This is the second time I have tried to use a Green Dot Money Pak to put money into my PayPal account. It had been three days so far. Green Dot says nothing is wrong, PayPal says nothing is wrong so clearly it is designed not to work!
Now comes the adventure of getting a refund.
