First, a very happy birthday to my Dad! I love you! *hugs* I don't know if Dad actually reads my LJ, but I figure it can't hurt to post this. I'll be calling him tomorrow, but I couldn't really call him today because he leaves for work before we broke the silence.
I woke up and my morning and through the afternoon was silent (with the exception of giving a prospective student and parent directions to admissions and ordering painted_wolf
's lunch). It's incredibly challenging to maintain silence! We drove into town where I dropped PW off at class and then went to do laundry. Laundry was as it usually was. I didn't go out for breakfast as I usually do on Fridays because I didn't want to deal with the hassle of trying to order food without speaking, so I ended up eating a rather groty gas station breakfast sandwich and a stick of string cheese. It was food. *shrugs*
After laundry I parked the truck and walked over to help with Day of Silence. I was rather timid at first about handing out the cards about Day of Silence, but after a while I was handing them out left and right. For the most part people either accepted them and actually read them or just ignored me or said no thanks. It's amazing how many people still just don't want to think about or deal with GLBTQ. I actually had one person accept the card, look at it and immediately groaned, crumpled the card and threw it in the garbage. Well, at least he didn't litter. *sigh*
It was a gorgeous day! It felt nice to spend so much time outside. I got a bit too much sun so I have red forearms and a red face. Some days (like today) I wish I actually could tan instead of going from white to red. I ended up handing out most of the cards, which is quite impressive considering the stack was very large. Afterward I bought a t-shirt and also got one of the t-shirts from last year. Way cool! I'm not sure how much I'll be wearing the shirt from last year since it's chock full of really naughty words, but I'll definitely wear it. :)
I met up with PW, ciliandis
and Randy up in the Print Shop and bugged PW for her lunch order. I grabbed the food, ate lunch real quick and then off I went to work. Unfortunately I had to break the silence at 2:30 for work, an hour-and-a-half before the time to break the silence. Here I've been the rest of the night, working on a project so I can get used to some of the more advanced features of the portable studio. Since things are rendering right now, I get a quick moment to blog. Yay!
This weekend should be nice. Tomorrow I'm working four hours but otherwise just shopping and relaxing. Sunday I have church and then I get to hang out with Sarah for a while!
