Whoa…it’s been a crazy couple of days. I was rather disappointed that they closed the park at Seward for some v-ball tournament, but I managed to take care of a few things and at least I caught Harry Potter at the movies. =) Was going to start on my externship notebook, but when I looked for my flash drives, I realized I tossed them under my desk a couple weeks ago and forgot to put it back in my bag…I really hope someone turned it in to the office building….not optimistic, but if worse comes to worse, I really hope that the person who took the drives deletes everything on them. Aside from some office material and my resume stuff, I have rather personal pics on those…oooooh $hit!!!!!! Not only that, I lost my camera case and memory card reader at the restaurant…I can still hook up my cam to the computer for pics, but haven’t had the time yet. So I’m not only losing things, but my mind as well.
Sunday was crazy at the internship. Linette never took care of anything she was supposed to do while she was there and called d!ck last minute to tell him she couldn’t make it because of some personal situation. I had to come in early and was there working alone for over 3 hours before Erica showed up. I was busy, but fortunately, it wasn’t crazy. No muffins/scones were done, icecream/sorbet was running out and we ran out of chocolate pearls…Erica and I had our hands full trying to take care of the orders as well as trying to pick up Linette’s slack and mix everything. I was there for over 8 hours and when I left, Erica still had a lot to do. Felt bad for leaving, but I was already really tired…and I’m still there working for free. Not for long though. d!ck offered me a part-time position because he said he’s going to let Linette go since she let him down after prior warning. Ironic because the first day I was there, Linette was joking to Alejandro that I’m doing such a good job their going to have me replace her…not that I’m replacing her in any way. I’m just helping out. Anyways, I am really interested in the position…I’m working the hours anyway…would be nice to get an extra paycheck for it….it’ll be something in the industry to put on my resume…can’t be worse than going to kitchen class….might help in paying back the student loan…or for jumping out of a plane! ^_^ Plenty of good reasons and even got the go ahead from Ed and my advisor.
Anyways, so I had made plans last week to play tennis with Ed today…I was feeling rather drained and starting to come down with a cold (and kind of wanting to see Nat tonight) so I was going to cancel out. I come in to find a bundle on my desk with white shorts & tshirt, black sweatshirt, and directions to Newport, RI, a brochure for the Tennis Hall of Fame and a note saying he made reservations for 8PM and 11AM. When I talk my boss, he surprises me by telling me he had plans to take me to RI tonight and play, stay over and then play at the Tennis Hall of Fame in the morning (which is where the white clothing come in…apparently you can only wear white to play…weird) and then walk around the museum. Damn, I was staring at him speechless. It sounded awesome and overwhelming on one hand, but then I was tired (ok, maybe not so tired after hearing that), wondering how I could go about cancelling on Nat, what to do about leaving Nilla home alone over night and in the back of my mind thinking it was going to be a little odd being on a trip overnight with my boss…more than a boss…a coach/friend/boss, but still odd…
