Why do I volunteer? Is it the stress of knowing those that benefit from all your work show you no appreciation whatsoever? Fuck!
Every year someone on the team screws us over by not being able to volunteer at the casino and not providing a volunteer to take their place. And then one of us poor schlep Executive members has to take up the slack. Surprise, surprise, it's happened again. Guess who's turn it is this year? It's really an unfortunate coincidence that the casino for Synergy was scheduled for the two days before World Master Games. Our turn only comes up every 18 - 24 months, so it was shitty luck.
I'm scheduled to work the AGLC casino tonight in the countroom, and I found out last night from Natasha that I'm now going to be working the same shift tomorrow night too. That 10pm to 3am boys and girls....and still appear at work in the morning. On top of that I have to be out of Calgary by 8 a.m. on Friday in order to get up to Edmonton, accredited at the Games Center for the racing starting on Saturday, and then back to Red Deer for lunch before heading back to Edmonton in the evening in order to settle at Gregg and Daryl's place. If I make it through the next 36 hours without some illness, then the goddess above is looking down on me.
So, to all of you in the blogosphere, I wish you all well if I don't talk to you in the next couple of weeks. Have a great party Jeff! Do both boys and grrls Nat! Get over your headaches Nancy! Watch your intake Sara!
