Hinkers, Winkers and Wonkers

This is just a random post for anyone at all interested in what I'm doing right now.

I got out of a meeting just now about volunteering at a current art exhibit. There are two options: coat check/ticket taking misc. stuff and actually leading packs of rabid school children through an exhibit. I have a week to decide what I'm going to do. Let's look at the pros and cons.

1. The Misc. Work. Well, it's not such a big time commitment. You come in, you take coats, you go home (not with the coats). But you don't get the experience of leading tours and such, and that could be very cool.

2. The Tours. For starters you get to wear a costume (always exciting) consisting of a safari hat, khaki vest and messenger bag (courtesy of the Israeli army). But it requires a lot more work because you have to learn about so much art work, you have to shadow a few tours and give a few mini-tours for the staff before you're let off the leash.

I actually have homework (quite a bit) this semester which makes the whole having time thing a little iffy. They only ask for a 2 hour minimum of either work so that's not a big deal. Still... Deep thoughts are being prompted. So, do I break out of my well-established box and have a (potentially) great experience, creating a hectic schedule for myself in the meantime? Or do I take the easier, less time consuming way and still get to hang out in the museum? Either way I have to go to another meeting next week so for now my plan is to take a look at my schedule and then see how things sound next Thurs.

Anyway. Moving on. I have a between-work-and-school schedule that lives with a very delicate balance. I have to be in the shower at 11:45 in order to catch the 12:15 bus (which I do at least two days a week). Two days in a row now, my fabulous roommates have cut into my time. This is very vexing to me.

In a related story, I had a dream last night that I got 2100% on my first Maya art short paper. In actuality I got a 9 (out of 10), which isn't quite a 2100% but I'm getting there. I also dreamed that the extended ROTK came out on Dec. 2. The extra special edition came with something called "Haldir's X", "X" meaning the word I can't remember and which probably does not exist, but started with C. It was some kind of wall hanging from Gondor (I protested this, of course, as he is not from Gondor) combining a natural rock formation and swords. It looked cool in the dream but would probably not translate to real life. In this same day me and Moms were shopping at Wal-Mart and she bought all us kids lunch boxes. My brother got a Spider-man one. She also let me buy the first season of Reboot on DVD.

Well, kids, it's that time again--time to catch the bus. I'm reading Airframe by Michael Critchon and I'm going to read some more on the bus. It's pretty good, definitely better than some of his other books (Congo, The Lost World). Anyway, time to go home and do...*drumroll* homework. Over and out.

(PS: Word is Goblet of Fire will be 2 1/2 hours. Wha' happened?)


  1. I think you should do the tour guideing. And since you'd be wearing a safari hat you could say, "Clever girl." and then get "eaten by an attraction".

    Also, who is directing HP: GOF?

  2. Goblet of Fires is being directed by The Childlike Empress.

  3. You sure do write gooder that most common folks Mr!

  4. Looks like someone's too KOOL for bloxxing again.

  5. To cool for refried beans? Also.
