It's Friday, but unfortunately for me, my Monday. I'm still really tired from yesterday, but luckily, it was a light day at work. I have a hockey game tonight with my women's team, and then tomorrow night is game 1 in our Championship series (co-ed league). I think we're going to be really short handed for that game - it's probably a good thing that it's best of 3!

So, I tried to do something really nice today for a good friend of mine who has been going through a lot of crap. I thought it would cheer him up. The details aren't really germane to the story, but the point is that it sort of backfired on me. Sometimes, when I try to do something completely selfless for someone else, the other party assumes I must have some sort of motive in doing the good deed. Am I the only person this happens to?

Pretty much how every day at work for me goes... Kind of how my job description was designed.

The worst time for me was this. I used to work swing at the hospital, and I organized a birthday potlock for our September co-workers. So not only did it happen to fall on 9/11 and no one felt much like celebrating, but our manager (whose birthday was in September) decided to stick around that evening, and I hadn't included her name on the cake. That was the last time I organized a potluck.
