Well, here I am at HCCC on this chilly Sunday night before I have to go to work which I am definitely not looking forward to, and this week is probably going to be the worst week yet because this week is Thanksgiving week, which means Black Friday, my sixth since I began working at Wally World. This week is very clearly not a week that I am looking forward to, but then again, I usually don’t look forward to going to work, especially not in the last two years.
Last night, I went back to Ilion Little Theater for the last performance of the play, “The 1940’s Radio Hour.” Of course that night things were slightly complicated. My sister’s car broke down and I ended up hiking out to the Stables that night and after the play, hiking back to Herkimer. As I have mentioned before in another blog, I used to commute on my own two feet between Ilion and Herkimer all the time back when I was living there. Usually it takes me between forty-five minutes to an hour, depending on traffic and weather conditions. On the way back though, I had to stop off at Subway when I got back into Herkimer, so I ended up getting home around midnight last night. Anyway, it was a lot of fun.
I don’t really know what my plans are for this week other than the obvious event which I have stated at the beginning of this blog. Both HCCC and the Basloe Library are closed on Thanksgiving and Black Friday so I will probably have more time to work on my book. Also, depending on weather conditions, I am probably heading back to the Historical Society on Friday and I think that they are open on Saturdays starting this weekend until Christmas so I have a place to go and work on my book.
Usually, I use Black Friday as an excuse to go and get some DVD’s, especially since a lot of them are usually priced at about three or four bucks. I’m sure that they will have a lot of other things there that I need but can’t afford. One thing that I am probably going to miss is the pizza they give out afterwards because I am going to be off on Friday night. Beyond that, I’m not really going to miss too much.
