S&G 1

I could hide out under there...

Yay for Barenaked Ladies!

Nicoal and Cory picked me up yesterday morning, and we drove five hours to The Gorge amphitheater. It was beautiful. We had to wait around quite a bit, but it was OK. It was really windy all evening, and I was afraid it was going to get worse when it got dark, but it calmed down, which was nice. We listened to an Opening-opening band (Sara something and "her band"), and then to a few songs from The Proclaimers (Yay for 500 Miles!) and then the Barenaked Ladies played for a few hours. They had excellent stage presence, and they were funny... I think a little more fun to watch than Billy Joel and Elton John. Anyway, then we drove home and I slept pretty much the whole way, so it didn't seem like a very long drive at all. I kind of felt bad though that I didn't drive, but Cory drove pretty much the whole way anyway. So they dropped me off a little after four, and I ran upstairs and passed out again.

This afternoon, I have an interview at the airport. I'm curious to know how to get to the airport on a bus. Maybe I should find that out sometime soon. I also must figure out where in the airport the Herz counter is. Hopefully I'll leave early enough that I'll find everything and not be late. I never know how long those bus rides are going to take.

I'm so stupid, I surprise even myself.

So, today I had an interview at the airport at 1pm. I didn't have any change, so I had to run to Walgreens to get some, and I got stuck behind a lady with $99-worth of stuff to buy at the only open register in the place. Thus, I missed my bus. So I took the next one, hoping that I'd get to the airport in time, and when I got to the transit station to switch buses, I looked at the timetable and noticed that the bus I'd be taking wouldn't get to the airport until 1:15. I figured I'd just be late, so I waited there. The #12 was a little early, which made me happy, so I boarded it, and sat down... and realized I took the #12 going the wrong way. So I got off the next chance I could, and walked around being upset and talking to Josh... I tried to call the guy (I don't even know his name or the business name) to tell him I'd be late, but the number my caller ID picked up was now a fax line. So I couldn't tell him I wasn't going to be there. I called Dad to see if maybe he could come and get me and take me there, and he wasn't home (probably taking my sister home) so I just got back on the bus to take me home, and here I am. I am REALLY angry at myself. Josh kept saying "these things happen!" but they wouldn't happen if I was more responsible. So now I'm going to wait and see if the guy calls me asking where I am, and if he does maybe I can reschedule. But if not... well, shame on me for not getting his name and number (I was walking with Erin along the river, and he calling surprised me, so I wasn't quite ready to remember names and phone numbers, but still...). So here I am at home again, jobless. I'm so stupid.
