it’s been an “interesting” weekend. I was prompted by a librarian friend to go to a conference of librarians, even though I could not afford the exorbitant registration fee. but it was quite easy to sneak in. Like, do they really need to hire security to guard the entrances to prevent people from crashing a librarian’s conference? i was just relieved they were not guarding the exits.
The keynote speaker was this guy from Apple, Guy Kawasaki… very much like a Tony Robbins motivational speaker, or like Tom Cruise in that film Magnolia. There’s something about motivational speakers that makes me want to crawl into an igloo at the furthest reaches of the earth. Which is where I went afterwards.
Yesterday I volunteered at a food bank, packing up packages of bread crumbs into boxes, 12 bags per box. It was very hypnotic, but I’m sure that would not be the opinion of people who have to do that kind of work every single day. I think I need to do more of that sort of thing, maybe with other food stuffs.
After our shift, the volunteer manager person told us we had packed over 2 tons of breadcrumbs… but I really wanted to know how many carbs that added up to. I don’t think they were gluten-free.
