Soothing the beast

Yesterday I didn’t go to work. I took a “personal day,” which translates to me telling them I’m not coming in and working extra hours the other days to make up the lost pay.

I went instead to an Earth Day fair at Portland Community College, the Sylvania campus. One of my customers (I have the world’s BEST customers!) invited us to come, to sell soap. We did really well! I also had a great time, it was fun having a different crowd — not that I dislike the crowd at the market, but the college thing was fun.

We also went to hear Barbara Ehrenreich speak at Oregon State University last night. This of course involved having dinner first at our favoritest of favorite restaurants, Oasis (it’s next door to WinCo, for you Corvallis folks). I have missed Oasis badly.

Barbara E. was great. She speaks like she writes — funny, articulate, spot-on with her observations. It was great.

I’m feeling better. If I have to be unemployed for a while, I’ll think of it as a vacation. An unpaid, how are we going to pay our bills vacation, but time off nonetheless.
