Just another Tuesday….

 “Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes
(Turn and face the stranger)
Ch-ch-Changes
Don’t want to be a richer man
Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes
(Turn and face the stranger)
Ch-ch-Changes
Just gonna have to be a different man
Time may change me
But I can’t change  time”

Well, another day is at an end, and that means it’s time to blog. Unfortunately, I once again don’t seem to have a great deal to blog about tonight. Oh well, I’ll think of something. I usually do.
My work day was not to annoying today. The eight hours passed rather quickly, and in my job that is always a good thing.  Of course, the day did get off to a rather shocking start when I walked outside the door this morning. It was COLD!. I mean seriously cold. Jeez, I must be getting soft as I get older; I mean it wasn’t below zero or anything but it was damn cold. The last three years I lived in Nebraska the entire months of December, January, and February never the temperature never got above zero degrees. It wasn’t nice, but it was a fact, and people dealt with it. Tweny three years later I have to wonder how? I mean several months of weather colder than it was this morning. Gods, I’m glad my Dad moved us south. I don’t miss the winters of my youth, don’t miss them at all.
After work I contacted American Johnny and found out why they had not sent an invoice for the porta potties we rented for Samhain. It turns out that they had, but for some reason I never received it. They graciously agreed to send me another one, and gave me the amount due. So, with that final bit of knowledge I can now say that Samhain 2006, the Rumble on the River, officially made a profit. Yep, it made a profit of $8.32. Not a great deal of profit, but my record of never losing money on an event is unbroken.
I spent a couple of hours reading and then it was time to go to the Baronial Business meeting The last business meeting had deteriorated into a …..well the word I would like to use is not appropriate for a public post but it would rhyme with the phrase bluster puck. I was, for the first time since joining the SCA, actively looking for a reason to not attend a Business Meeting. Normally, I encourage as many people as possible to attend the meetings. I firmly believe that if one wants to participate in the SCA Events, one has a responsibility to attend the meetings. True, they usually are not much fun, but they are necessary. They are part of what makes the events possible. However, after the melt down last week, I was trying to find away to avoid going this evening. I couldn’t find a way to avoid it without feeling like a hypocrite, so I loaded up my notebook, and headed to the meeting. Fortunately things were much better tonight. There are still some tensions, but the main issue had been addressed. Everybody was nice to each other tonight. I even got a couple of interesting offers to work on some projects with some good people. In the end, I was glad I attended.
