So it seems like I'll be the point person on presenting the board's budget to city council. I'll simply be asking people to give me twenty-eight million dollars. No biggee.
Still not sure how this happened.
Word is that some people have been interviewed already. It seems that these might be people who have applied for more than one board. Me, I only applied for the one, and so I haven't been contacted yet (and neither has our current chair). So I'm not supposed to be worried, but of course, I do.
I mentioned to the chair that whatever happens, this needs to be wrapped up before the first week of May, when I'm away. She said that I could simply Skype it in. Then I mentioned that I would be on the Boat. She had no idea that I was going on the Boat, and she's very excited. But she now sees the problem in Skyping from the mid-Atlantic. Possible, but stupid expensive, and not guaranteed to work, either.
We'll see. I'm still lamenting accidentally erasing a personal phone message the other day, before I had a chance to hear it. The number was from a call centre in Burlington -- what was that about? I hope to God it wasn't reappointment people. I doubt it, but...
Last night I had a panic that the Boat might conflict with Eurovision -- luckily, it's a couple of weeks later. Because if there was a conflict, I would have had a Real Problem. I cannot -- CANNOT -- miss Eurovision.
