A chance at Christmas.

The Christmas party at St. Stephen’s church was fine. It included a lottery for gifts, which included Starbuck’s coffee, Cub Foods, Target gift cards, Best Buy gift cards, and a metrobus pass. I won nothing, but at least I had a chance at Christmas- besides, it is mainly about getting a chance to mingle with other people and take a break from ordinary routine.

Here is a picture of the musical performance. Jayanthi sang a song called “Elijah” (which sounds like Eliza).

This morning was an early morning for exiting the shelter from St. Stephens. The milk was past its due date, so I skipped cereal. A friend met up with me and took me out for a breakfast at the Uptown Diner.

I’m still very happy to be at St. Stephen’s because the beds are very nice and the common areas have tables, chairs, and a television. The conversation is always interesting and the open wi-fi would be awesome if I had a notebook.

One thing, it would be very nice to be able to leave as late at 7:15 a.m. because then I could get to Branch 3 for the second shift. This would keep me, and others, from waiting outside for the Branch 3 to reopen on days the Workforce center is closed. Almost all of the nonprofits seem to close their computer lab/workforce centers on the weekends. Does this make sense?

***Special note: If Marco’s girlfriend is reading this, I’m sorry that the flyer caused you some confusion. I handwrite the flyers I distribute and put hearts on them. It was not a note from another woman- just me.***

In any case, please keep sending in the petitions and email links. I’m asking for help retweeting and posting to other forums. With the show on break until post-holidays, we need to get this done fast! Spread the word.
