I woke up at 5 am to take two buses up to Santa Rosa to train the new AmeriCorps girl - Bus #1 was subsequently late, but I ended up on Bus #2 just on time and got to watch the sun rise as it drove out of the San Fran fog. Originally, I had planned to be there for a week to help her get settled in, but due to schedule conflicts up everyone's wazoos, we had to settle for a one-day massive data overload. I feel bad in that she probably feels overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information I threw at her - things that took me weeks or months to learn (or months before I got around to learning it). I felt so bad that I told her and my former boss to contact me anytime they needed info, at least until the new girl has time to process and absorb. It will be a good chance for me to keep in touch too. I hope she has a good year.
We went to a restaurant called Mamma Pig's for pulled pork and bbq. YUM. I was starving when I arrived, but it was so filling I only ate half. Also, I discovered Leninade:
|I have NO idea what flavor it was supposed to be, and I don't care =P|
The words under the star says: "Join the party!"
