O, JOY!

Yesterday I had the dubious honor of representing my company at a local golf course for a charity tournament. No, I didn’t actually play. Instead, I got to sit in between the 4th and 16th holes with a table of snacks and cold drinks. All day. Oh, and did I mention that it got into the triple digits here yesterday? Yeah- it was fucking hot. And did you know that even if you sit under a pop-up tent all day and only leave once to go to the bathroom you can get one of the worst sunburns you’ve had in years? That’s right- in the goddamned SHADE!! WTF?!? Look- I understand if I were on a boat or skiing or something then I might get the glare from the water/snow and get a burn that way. But I was on dark green grass. Where’s the glare? Huh?! How the hell did I get a sunburn?

That’s a true test of how Irish one might be: if you get a fucking sunburn in the fucking shade. Fuck.

And it was a worthless day, marketing-wise. I’m not really clear why the decision was made to sponsor this dumb table. I think it must have had something to do with the dumb girl who was running marketing previously. I think it was probably just an excuse for her to get away from the office for a day and work on her tan. Of course SHE could tan.

I’m going to be making some big changes around here. This is an employee owned company and I don’t need my profits being spent on dumb shit like golf. I hate golf.

Driving the golf cart was really fun though!

Ooo- I also had my first ever business cards ordered yesterday. I’m so excited! I feel so important. I’m sure that’ll wear off pretty quickly.

I went to a new dance class last night. I was somewhat disappointed. The class was short, it was low energy, and I didn’t really feel like I got a good workout. I may go again, but I think I’ll stay with my other class for the time being. I like that it’s about 2.5 hours and that we really work the whole time. An hour long class is just not enough. If it hadn’t been a frillion degrees in the room I wouldn’t have even broken a sweat. Meh- I was really hoping for something new.

I’m working on some choreography right now. I’m actually really excited about it. I’m pretty sure that I’ll be dancing with two of my favorite ladies and to a song that is a lot of fun. I don’t want to give anything away yet, but I’ve been thinking about it constantly. It’s been very distracting.

And that’s about it for now.

    I get sunburned in the shade too. My husband always jokes around and says that I am the only person that he knows that can get sunburned at night, by the moon!
