Twitter While You Work


My temp job working at a non-profit for retired people is almost up.  But first, I got to go to the annual luncheon, held at a restaurant in Ghiradelli Square.  This really wouldn’t have been so painful if I hadn’t suddenly realized today, that between this job and working at the restuaurant, I haven’t had a day off since a week from last Tuesday; that I won’t have a day off until at least this up-coming Tuesday, and that I’m working from 10am until 11pm tonight.  Needless to say, I was in no mood to go shmooze with a crowd full of Senior Citizens this morning.

Truthfully? It wasn’t that bad.  I got a free three-course meal, some wine, and a business card from an accountant who teaches Tichi.  Not too shabby.  I also got really bloated, and needed to make a run for the bathroom in the middle of some local government councilman’s speech about high speed trains.  I felt like I was slowly exploding.  Who cares about high speed trains? How about high speed speeches? THANKFULLY my boss called, “Last question!” And once this was answered, I bolted for the door.

“Now it’s time for the raffle.  Lois will be picking the tickets, aided by Meredith.  Meredith?”  Eighty-five senior citizens turned towards me, mid-bolt.  My hand was on the door knob.

“Oops!” A portly fellow chuckled as he ducked under my arm to leave the room.

“But, I have to. Go to. The bath.room.” I wimpered to no one, as I grudgingly backtracked into the room.  Escape: Thwarted.

Below, you will find my live tweeting (?) of the luncheon. For those unfamiliar with twitter, it’s in chronological order, with the earliest posts starting at the bottom.
