Yesterday was pure aggravation. I gave a tour yesterday of our basement, where we keep a bulk of our collection. When most people had to leave after an hour of the tour, one woman insisted on her full hour and a half tour as advertised. I went rounds with our secretary over changing some promotional material and some of the problems I’ve had with previous promotional materials. Everything I’d gotten her to change, she went behind my back and got our Director to change back so that it connected back to the continuity of the old promotional material. His continuity is just boring and continues some of the same mistakes that we’ve been making,
I’m not sure I understand how someone could just miss a meeting, but our caterer did. It’s not like I can say, we’ll go with someone else, because it’s the university caterer and we aren’t allowed. So I had to reschedule for Monday. I did, however, convince my boss that things were better done my way. If I’m going to be the public programmer, then let me do the programming. Furthermore, there are more complications to the traveling show. So my day was not fun, like I’d anticipated.
Today might actually be a fun day at work. I get to plan food for several upcoming events. I have my ideas of how things should be done and since I am the public programmer, I will be getting my way. Quite honestly, being from the South, I know how to throw a classier party than Yankees do. We just do things better. Besides, some of my coworkers have tried to step on my toes with regard to some of the planning, but I called the meeting today and I will set the agenda. It’s all going to be good, especially when I’m planning it, lol.
In October, we are having two psychics/mediums come to the museum to commune with the spirits associated with some of our objects. While I’m skeptical about much of this stuff, there have been some unexplainable things that go on at the museum. I’m actually on my way now to meet with on of our psychics/mediums. I’m not really sure what to call her. Anyway, it should be an interesting day.
Tomorrow night should be interesting as well. I’m going on a two hour gay cruise of Lake Champlain: Whatever Floats Your Boat 3. It should be a blast. There will be a dance party, a variety show, and one deck just for chillin’. I’m quite excited. Hopefully, it won’t be too hot.
Yesterday, I had several little articles to write for work. I got them finished fairly quickly in the morning because I was anticipating having to be in a short movie they were filming in the museum yesterday. Luckily, I got out of having to be in the film. However, that meant I had very little to do yesterday afternoon. The worst thing about being really bored is that it can give me a headache which is what happened yesterday. Starting mid afternoon and lasting until I went to bed, the headache droned on. Sadly, it looks like today will be another unexciting day.
As I lay in bed, I’m wondering what the future holds this week. I have a couple of things that need to be written and a few meetings, but otherwise, who knows what’s going to happen. The funny thing is that I have an appointment to see a psychic medium on Friday. She will be doing a special program for us at the museum and we are going to meet with her to map things out.
Yesterday was the fourth time traveling with this exhibit. We’ve been to Florida, New York, and Montpelier. This time it was just across campus. The move went faintly smoothly though half the exhibit stayed at the museum because it needed repair. Everyone was excited to see the exhibit because many of them won’t be traveling with us to other places.
I’m not sure how it began or when, but we had a major leak in the museum. The compressor in the water fountain upstairs had gone out and caused water to collect within the wall and eventually drip down to the basement. It had been going on long enough for mold to start to grow. It was quite a mess. Uniforms and hats had major water damage. We got all the wet pieces out and into the freezer. Now we wait for insurance and a conservator to tell us the cost of this water leak.
