Every 4th Thursday, I have to get my apartment cleaned up, so that the cleaning lady can do her magic. And today was the 28th day since her last appearance. So I ended up staying up late last night in order to make sure that all traces of Marian were back in their closets before she came.

Waking up around 8-9 am, I knew that I didn't have enough sleep. But I didn't have the luxury of taking a nap. Instead, I cleaned up the remaining flotsam and jetsam around the apartment before getting showered, made up, and dressed before leaving the house.
While out, I checked with Ex-GF-M to see if we were still on for lunch. Unfortunately, she had to postpone until tomorrow. So I made it to the GLBT center to do a volunteer stint. Today's work was relatively easy - setting up a couple of petitions, so that they could be printed later today and signatures collected at the upcoming Clearwater festival being held this weekend. When 3 pm came around, it was time to leave - and I checked to see how I could kill time until the start of game night.
After looking at the movie schedules, I decided on seeing Wonder Woman. It was enjoyable action movie fluff, and a film that I think every young girl should see. Young girls need to see that women can "kick ass" with the best of them, so that they can grow up to be self actualized women. Including the trailers, the film ran over 2 hours, and it was 6:30 pm when the movie ended. At this point, I didn't want to spend a lot of money for dinner. So I had a couple of slices before heading down to game night.

When I arrived at the meetup, I was the first person there. The hostess was working with her daughter to perform some eye exercises. (Her eyes will scan a page, then all of a sudden, jump to something outside the field of focus, causing her to have troubles in reading.) The hostess was a little surprised that I was there early, but once I mentioned seeing a movie, she understood.
I enjoyed playing tonight's games, although I had to bail out of one game that I couldn't comprehend. At this time of night, without adequate sleep, there was no way I'd do well with a complex game of moving tiles based on cards in hand. And I'm thankful that they changed the game, so that I could have fun on a second game - which I also lost.
As people left, I got into a chat with the hostess, and she suggested that I try to get employment at a local college. She noted that given their student base, that it might be an advantage for me to seek employment as Marian. Who knows - I might just do that....
