I was sort of quadruple-booked tonight, with a fund-raiser for The Girls' school (that I'd already paid for) trumping doing a bartending gig (unpaid) for the CTC, going to the other Toastmasters meeting, or doing a market research thing at 6pm. I was actually "on hold" for the market research thing for a later slot (they had one 8-10, which I could have ducked out of the fund raiser to get to), but they finally got back to me and said they couldn't work me in tonight (pity ... I always like getting a hundred bucks or so for a couple of hours of opining!).
Oh, well ... I'll just load up on my "networking" cards and spend the full time schmoozing! It should be good, as it's over at Gibsons (right across the street from me), and I've never been able to bring myself to actually eat there (though I've been to a couple of events there which were quite tasty) ... one of the worst things about not having a paycheck is that I have to negotiate with myself to even spend $4.41 at McDonalds, and just categorically scratch off going to any nice ($$$) restaurants.
