(This is a guest post from our very own Maribou!)
After an incredibly stressful work week ameliorated only by how awesome my coworkers are, I am so very happy to be looking this weekend in the face.
Because of my work schedule, I actually have an odd little pre-weekend on Fridays, when I don’t have to be at work until 2 pm. Normally that’s what I need to make it all the way to the real weekend, which starts when I get off work 8 hours later, but this week? This week I get to take three hours out in the middle of my workday to go to one of our campus venues and listen to CHUCK D discuss his life and writings.
That’s right, I SAID CHUCK D.
In a theater that maybe holds 400 people.
I will be showing up an hour early in the hopes of getting a seat.
Given that Jaybird’s leaving for Qatar on Monday and my sister & niece & brother-in-law are arriving in a week, I expect the rest of this weekend to be weekendly only insofar as we will be working on stressful urgent home projects / chores instead of stressful urgent work projects / chores. And, thank goodness, there will be the delightful yet time-taking-up leaven of social things like gaming and TV dates to break up the intensity.
CHUCK D. My 15-year-old self is SO EXCITED right now. My grown-up self is pretty darn excited too.
What’s on your docket?
