I boo'd!

October 30th, 2009 at 01:01 pm

Yesterday I bought 6 $2 candy bars to put in my boo bags. They were being sold by a sorority who was fundraising for school supplies in Africa. That satisfied my philanthropic streak. Along with some hot chocolate packets and a few hard candies they made a nice presentation. Left the two bags at my neighbors' doors this morning.

I gave a co-worker a ride to work this morning, and she told me that someone had left candy at her door, calling it a "chain letter thing", and she was suspicious -- didn't know if she should eat it. (She is in another building in the same complex.) I told her that I was guessing that our manager started a bag in each building. It certainly never occurred to me to be fearful!

We are having a Halloween bash at work. I was going to bake something last night, but totally forgot (got involved in Thursday night must-see television). So this morning I grabbed a can of cashews, which I think will be a nice foil to all the sweets....

As I mentioned yesterday, I'm supposed to go to a networking event downtown today. It's pouring down rain, so that's decided it for me. I would have to take the train, and walk several long blocks to get there -- not worth it. So I'm saving train fare, possibly taxi fare, and the cost of drinks.

Tomorrow I'm going to head up early to see my two grandsons. Then I'll have a few errands to run -- dry cleaners, and the grocery (a very short list). Trying to save all I can for those important funds!

    Oh, i don't blame you for not wanting to go the networking thing especially if there's an admission fee or drinks to pay for.

    I'd rather go to networking meetings where you can actually have more meaningful conversations with a smaller, more serious group of people. And no cost involved.
