Day 69: August 8, 2012
Okay. Since it’s getting later in the year we start when it’s dark out. With our sad little carts, you’re lucky if you get headlights. However, the awesome trade-off is that you get the watch the sunrise at work. And sometimes they are rather spectacular. #momentsilovemyjob (sorry I didn’t get a better picture but my boss was there).
Anyway, mowed tees by myself. Which was actually pretty okay, it was sort of peaceful. Except they’re doing construction on Hawk and these gigantic machines (trucked in from Quebec) are destroying Sixteen Raven to get there. I also had to wait forever for this guy to maneuver his way up (sorry I didn’t get a better picture but my other boss was there).
Later, we had ginger beef for lunch, which was swell.
Then, even later, we visited Two Hawk to deadhead and realized that not only are the petunias we planted a little later to fill the baskets in a little bit smaller, they’re actually a different (and much cooler) colour. Which is fine, no one but us will notice.
I’m sure we weeded or did something else too.
After work, I went to my sister’s house because my dad was there. We all talked for a bit. Then dad and I went to Giant Hamburger (NO LONGER GOOD), and then I took off for orientation for Apocalypse Wars. Turns out, it was way less sketchy than I was expecting it to be. Met up with a couple other volunteers, but mostly just the people who put it together. Learned a lot about the event, what it was, how they were planning on running it, how it got put together, the media coverage, the problems, ect. Basically got really stoked to go.
After we went through all the important stuff, I just hung out with them for a bit. Then eventually decided I should go home and sleep and did just that.
