A somewhat gloomy Monday
The morning started out just fine. I went in to work, and did my usual things for Lee and Rodolfo (Rodolfo is the guy in charge of the Cuban-Haitian Program office, where I’m helping out these days when the ROW [Refugees Of the World] office doesn’t need me). From 11:00 to about 1:20, I hung out in the ROW office, doing some work, but mostly sitting around waiting for the phone to ring. I was expecting a call from the editor at the Episcopal News for this diocese, who wants to write a little story about me and my internship. During that down time, I went back and completed my entries in this blog for yesterday and Saturday.
At about 1:20, I went to lunch. When I came back, at around 2:00, I called the editor and we had a phone interview. It was not much better then my Skype interview for the World Fantasy 2008 Podcast, which I didn’t think was very good. I’ve only gotten a little better at thinking sentences all the way through before I start saying them.
I spent the rest of the afternoon helping Rodolfo catch up on case notes, and the evening at home, goofing off. I didn’t feel well most of the day, so I took an allergy pill when I got home. It only made me feel 50% better, so now I can definitely tell I have a cold. Of all the weeks for me to get sick, it would be the week leading up to Derby, which has the highest concentration of exciting things for me to do.
