We had a by-donation breakfast at work this morning to raise funds for our adopted family. My contribution – other than the idea – was to dust off my 20-year-old barista skills: I spent the morning making lattes, cappuccinos, and mochas. You never really forget how to do that stuff, which is good because I had to depend on others to taste test: it’s hard to tell if you’re making drinks right if you don’t actually drink coffee.
I only had one jug to steam milk in, and I had four kinds of milk – so inevitably, I would drink the dregs of one so I could start the next. This lead to me drinking around four lattes before 9:30 – I am fucking wired. My hands are pruny, and I may be twitching. Today is going to be interesting!
I sold my iPad last night, and my old 4 earlier this week. The timing really couldn’t have been better, because my new laptop will be here on Monday. I finally confessed to Ed that I had ordered it – he wasn’t surprised. Still, I’m pleased that everything worked out. I met the lady who wanted to buy the iPad last night at the mall, as she wanted an Apple Genius to give it a look over before she bought it. Whatever; if you’re not a technophile you want to make sure you’re not getting scammed. I didn’t mind because it was convenient for me, so we met up and Apple gave the iPad the thumbs up (practically brand new, he sez). I could have left then, but my instincts took over and I spent another 30 minutes or so giving her a training session on cool things you could do with the iPad and how to use the keyboard case. She left happy, I got to be smart, and all was good. Plus, frozen yogurt and a ridiculous hat with an owl on it. As far as Thursday nights go, it was a good one.
I am bouncing in my seat. It’s a good thing I have an hour of training to deliver; it’ll burn off some of my excess energy.
I am wearing a bright red plaid tie to hide my shame. It’s not really working – I have a lot of shame – but my tie is awesome. I should get more ties and wear them everywhere!
