I’m bored, I’m the chairman of the board

Hey, remember how much extra time I said I had? Like today, I left my place at 9am, got home at 9pm, and just got off a 2 hour online conference with my collaborators on a final project for one of my classes. I know how fried I am because I just realize I spelled “place” wrong. Yes, I fixed it. So you know what would be cool? If I took on another project. Yes, I’ve been elected to my co-op board. Most people said they were sorry, as though I had said I was just transferred to Uzbekistan, but I am excited! I just like knowing what’s going on behind the scenes with things. It stems from a childhood going to a school where my parents were on the board, a camp where my father was the chairman and my mother on the board, and a synagogue where my father was the president. I get upset when I don’t find out why so-and-so got fired and such. Plus, I live in a tiny building and I like the other people on the board. Now. But who cares? People liked me better than the other losers who live here!

Anyhoo, another Jewish holiday is upon us, I know because I finally joined the rest of the wired world and got a Google calendar (how else would I suddenly find out that I have three mid-terms/papers due in one week?). And Google calendar says it’s the Festival of Booths so it must be. Also, that the Yankees are playing at 7:08pm tomorrow. That site knows everything! It could also tell you how little time I have (although, wait, I just did that myself) which is why I shall refer you to all my previous Sukkot posts for your personal edification, should you wish to know more. Chag Sameach!

It’s just one short step from co-op board to state assembly. I hear the NY legislature doesn’t really do anything, so it would have the extra advantage of not adding very much to your to do list.

See, now I thought you would have posted a Frank Sinatra song for this one.

Sarp, and I could be employed for life!

KP, who now?
