"Tomorrow turns into never."
--- Tim Ferriss, in The 4-Hour Workweek
Today was "Institute Day" at werk, meaning the union presented a day of seminars, activities, speeches, propaganda, and, of course, a vendors' room. Attendance at Institute Day is mandatory, as it is a contractually agreed-upon substitute for one "work day." Institute Day is held in downtown Honolulu at the Blaisdell Arena, Oahu's (excuse for an) exhibition center. Registration time at Institute Day was from 6:30 am to 8:30 am.
Institute Day is lame. Today was my third time in attendance. Naturally I got lost trying to find parking, as the only time I venture downtown to the exhibition center is once a year for Institute Day. I finally managed to find the place, paid my $5.00 parking fee, walked in, signed the attendance roster, picked up my little bag of flattened dead trees, and walked out. ( Collapse )
